Look at all the super activities you have been doing at home during Lock-down! we are very proud of what you have achieved and we can’t wait to see you all soon! :-)
Please send in birthday photos to add to our Ruby Class album! :-)
The Hunters and Gatherers of Ruby Class had an enriching day out, despite a rather wet start at Avebury henge looking at the evidence people have left behind from the stone age. We found out that they hunted wild ox, pigs, goat , deer, and ducks to eat and gathered apples, berries , roots, cabbage-type vegetables too. We also learnt that tools were made in the stone age out of flint, wood and animal bones.They made antler picks and cattle shoulder blade shovels to dig a nine metre ditch. The ditch took one hundred years to dig!
Mrs Gardiner has decided to run a picture book competition. Here is hers that she and Mr Gardiner made. Once you’ve read the blurb and feel motivated, what you write and exactly how or where the story takes your reader, well, that’s up to you. But you might want to think about what happens to Dennis. How does he get out of trouble? Who does he meet? Many picture books have a moral within them: something the character and the reader learns along the way. Does your story teach, inspire or have a positive message?
One last tip, we are of course looking for stories with beautiful and fun illustrations, we want to be dazzled with words, uplifted and taken on a journey full of emotion and drama, but don’t forget your stories should always have a beginning, middle and end!
Please send your finished story in a Word document, or if it’s a hand drawn creation then simply take a photo of each page and sent them to Mrs Gardiner at email@example.com. We will review every entry and publish our favourite on the school blog. When we return to school, there will be prizes for the top three stories.
Ruby Class Birthdays!
Good morning Rubies!
14 July 2020
It is the last week of term…hooray! We hope you are all well :-) I wanted to show you how much my vegetable plants have grown! Look really closely at the sugar snap pea plant and you will see 2 sugar snap peas growing! Also, one of my courgette flowers has finally opened up - isn’t it pretty! No flowers on my runner beans yet, but they are growing very well, so hopefully I will see some little orange flowers soon! I can’t wait to eat my homegrown vegetables over the summer; if you are growing vegetables at home I hope you enjoy eating them too! Love from Mrs Booth :-)

Wow, this is a fantastic poem! A lot of effort went into this, I can see! After writing his poem, Louie learnt how to use Photoshop to create his own Zelda Image. First he drew the picture in pen and the took a photo of the image. In photoshop he then coloured in the characters and added a backdrop he found online from Zelda.
Here is a link to the document, as I couldn’t get the image onto the blog post! https://www.stroudvalleyschool.co.uk/perch/resources/the-breath-of-the-wild-by-louie-brady-1.pdf
