Weekly Update

Week 5

Happy Friday Bonsais! What another super week of home education. I am so proud of all of you, and it has been so lovely to see so many new faces on zoom this week. We have had a brilliant week in school, talking a lot about mental health, just like you have at home. To help with my mental health this week I went on a long run yesterday. Here is a picture of me afterwards... I thought my silly outfit might make you laugh! I also like this little poster so I thought I would attach it here as well as on our 'well-being wednesday' page. Maybe you could do some of these things with your grownups over the weekend!

Week 4

Happy Weekend Bonsais! I am so proud of each and every one of you again this week. I have been at home again, spending time with Drax and Zeb and being amazed by all of your sparkly education at home. When I have the chance I have started reading a new book as well, all about Barack Obama. He used to be the President of the United States and the book is a autobiography (all about his own life). I love reading in my spare time. What are you reading at the moment and what is your favourite book? Please let me know. Speak soon.

We have had a fantastic week at school. Here are some pictures of what we got up to! 

Week 3

Hello Bonsais! It has been so lovely seeing lots of your faces on zoom this week - I especially loved Thursdays show and tell. This week I have spent lots of time running in the evenings and walking Drax and Zeb. We have been learning exactly the same as you in school, and everyone has been talking about how much they miss everyone! I am so proud of you and I will speak to you soon.

Week 2

Hello brilliant bonsais! I hope you're all OK. It's been so lovely this week seeing all of your photographs, whether you're learning hard at home or if you've been in school with Miss King and Mr Strachan. I've been at home like you all week this week, and then next week I'm back in school again. It's been lots of fun spending time planning exciting activities for you to try at home and also spending some time with my two dogs. When I first introduced myself as your new teacher back in September I only had 1 dog, but since then we have adopted another one all the way from Thailand! If you're not sure where that is, get your grown up to show you :) it's really far away - he had to go on an aeroplane! He had never seen real snow before so this week has been really exciting for him. Have you all played in the snow this week? I can't wait to see more pictures of you all next week!
