Hello Aventurine class.
I hope you’ve had a wonderful, well-deserved rest over the break. You can, as always, find this weeks home learning under the homework tab. This week it starts on Tuesday as Monday is an inset day (however for some subjects I’ve given you a few optional ideas to keep you busy).
I look forward to catching up with you all on Teams this week. As last time, our meeting will be at 11am on Wednesday! If you have any ideas of games or things you’d like to talk about, please let me know by Tuesday so I can plan those in!
Keep me in contact with what you’re up to. Let me know any problems with the home learning and we can sort them together! Do not suffer or worry in silence <3
Have a great week and I’m looking forward to all of the Purple Mash work to start pouring in again!

Check out this fantastic project from IS. I know you wont be able to read it due to the picture being too small, so here is some of the key information on TARDIGRADES.
They are likely to survive the end of the world!
Johanna August Ephraim originally named the tardigrade, Kleiner wasserbär, meaning little water bear in German. The name water bear comes from the way they walk similar to a bear’s gait (walk). The name tardigradum means “slow walker” and was given by Lazzaro Spallanzani in 1777.
They are aquatic and often found on lichens and mosses. Other environments are dunes, seasides, soil, and a marine of freshwater sediments. Tardigrades, in the case of Echiniscoides wyethi (a new marine tardigrade), may be found on barnacles or often by a soaking piece of moss in water.
Excellent work IS

NS has enjoyed researching the Northern Lights. See here her fantastic art work! Apparently she has particularly loved experimenting with different mediums and decided that soft pastels on black card worked best for her. AMAZING!

I have some news...
28 January 2021
So because you are all part of my wonderful class, I wanted to share my very exciting news with you first before it comes out in the school newsletter tomorrow! I am in fact pregnant and am expecting a little baby girl in June. This means the next time you see me, I may be looking slightly larger and rounder than you remember, don’t be alarmed, it’s not because I’ve spent lockdown eating too many biscuits :D
I am very, very, very excited, I just wish you were all in school to help me celebrate!
I hope you are all ok! I haven’t heard much from you this week so will calling around this afternoon and tomorrow to say hi:)
Take care of yourselves and never hesitate to email asking for some help if you need it!
