I have been teaching at Greyfriars since 2009 and I am also one of the school’s Assistant Head Teachers. I currently teach year 4’s and oversee our school’s curriculum. I run our school’s running club ‘The Greyfriars Greyhounds’ and our school choir. In Brancaster class we enjoy our learning and always strive to do our very best in everything we do. Outside of school I enjoy running and spending time with my family!

Your emails have been coming in fast this week and it’s great to see what you’ve all been up to!
Jack has been super busy and a real star contacting me each day and telling me what he’s been up to (definitely over and above). He has been busy working through his home learning grid as well as working hard on Tackling Tables, he’s had some amazing scores this week!

Jack’s Chocolate Timeline
Well done to Sonny who has produced a fantastic Chocolate Bar Timeline! He’s also been working hard each morning and completing the Joe Wicks workouts! I’ve done them every day this week too! Anyone else?
Ethan has also been really busy, he’s been designing and creating his own chocolate bar. I must say it looks rather yummy!

Looks so yummy!
Well done to all of you who have had a go at the games I put on the Classwork pages of Education City. Well done to; Nicole, Joseph, Alfie, Luja, Freya, Andrew, Matthew, Logan and Andreas, who all had a go at all of the games! A special mention to Alfie, Joseph and Nicole who all scored over 75% on all of the games and activities! Great work guys! If you haven’t logged on yet then please have a go! I won’t put any new classwork up until after Easter but there’s lots on there for you to explore. Don’t forget the Play Live games, they’re great fun and I know how much you all like a bit of competition.
Annabelle has also completed some fantastic work this week. She also sent me a video of her completing her Tackling Tables but it was too big to share on here! Well done Annabelle – TablesTastic!!!!!
I loved Annabelle’s rainbow drawing, it’s beautiful. Did anyone else go outside last night and take part in the ‘Clap for the NHS and Carers’? I did but as I live in a small village I didn’t hear many other people clapping. My son, who’s a Police Officer in Birmingham, sent me this video, his Police car even joined in too!
I think it’s really important to thank all the NHS staff and carers who are all doing an amazing job! I found these cards that you could print and send to anyone who you know who works for the NHS or as a carer. It’s good to say thank you!
It’s been great to keep in touch with lots of you and see all the amazing work you are completing at home. Some of you are sending me daily updates, showing me what you have been doing! Thank you, I love receiving your emails and updates.
Well done to Andrew, Logan, Luja and Joseph who all completed ALL of the work I set on Education City last week. Over half our class had a go at some of the activities, well done to all of you who had a go and tried your best! Remember to watch the learn screens, these will help you to complete the activities. I will be uploading new activities on Monday morning for you all to try next week!
Home Learning Grid
Well done to those of you who completed some of the activities on the Home Learning Grid. I have seen some excellent designs for your chocolate bars, (Isaac, I loved your Boris Bar idea! ) terrific timelines and some lovely work on Christopher Columbus. I especially enjoyed the videos some of you sent me reciting your poems! Lovely reading and actions, well done to all of you who gave it a go. I also liked seeing the pictures of your ‘Happy Places’.
Jack’s Happy Place!
Ksenia’s Happy Place!
Andrew’s English Work.
Pleased to see that many of you are working hard on your Power Maths, don’t forget to message me if you are stuck on anything. I’m here to help.
Fantastic Fractions from Logan!
Annabelle Working hard!
Have a wonderful weekend and make sure you keep an eye on the website on Monday morning when I’ll upload the new Home Learning Grid.
A week away from school and missing you all. I have been keeping busy with some DIY at home, walking my dogs, Ben and Ruby, reading and cooking for my family. I hope you are all helping out at home and busying yourself with all the work that has been organised for you. I look forward to seeing what you have been up to on the class pages. See you soon.

EducationCity is on it’s way to getting new servers because so many people are using it at the moment. I phoned them up and spoke to Kirsty, who said that this might mean that it’s difficult to log into today. Kirsty is going to email me when everything is up and running again. She says they are working really hard because they know how much you all want to work really hard!
When I know more about it, I’ll let you know as well!
Good afternoon everyone and Happy Birthday to Annabelle, I hope you’ve had a lovely day.
Have you tried the Joe Wicks PE lesson yet? Logan had a go yesterday so I thought I’d give it a try. It’s great fun and is a fantastic way to wake yourself up in the morning and get ready for a day of learning.
