Mrs Marshall


I have been teaching at Greyfriars since 2004 and am very proud of being part of the Greyfriars team. Also I am one of the school’s Assistant Head Teachers. I currently teach year 6’s and I am in charge of literacy throughout the school. In Winterton class we try to make the most of every learning opportunity and strive to do our best. Outside of school I enjoy reading, going to the cinema and spending time with my family!

 

Winterton Friday blog 14th May 2021

Posted on Friday, May 14th, 2021

44 teaching days to the end of term! So little time and so much work to do.

We have been busy again this week, indoor PE again due to rain, wind, cold; commands in French; geometry and explanatory writing. Today we had to make up excuses for various scenarios such as ‘why I haven’t done my homework’, ‘why I’m not wearing my school uniform’, ‘how I lost the dog’ – all to practise our casual conjunctions!

If I haven’t been able to take any photos during the week, our Friday blog looks a little bland – if you have any photos you would like to go onto the blog, please email them to me.

Who knows what we will have on next week’s blog?!

Have a lovely weekend and look forward to seeing you all on Monday.

Mrs. M

Well done Winterton for your wonderful week ending today 07.05.21

Posted on Friday, May 7th, 2021

Well done for another good week.

Due to weather being so awful this week, rather than doing tennis outside, we all went into the hall and did some balance work for gymnastics. Her is some of our work:

We worked very hard at keeping still!

Also this week we have been writing our hot task for our Jabberwock work. When we had invented our own narrative poem, we illustrated our work before sticking it in our literacy books. Here are some lovely examples:

In our celebratory assembly today 2 people were mentioned from Winterton: Jack for settling in after being off school for so long – well done Jack and you did some really good maths work today! Amanda was mentioned for her peer teaching, also in maths this week.

We are getting better at peer teaching and are able to explain to others what we are doing by using dialogic talk.

Also well done to Kai and Kylie for doing more good maths work this week.

Well done to all of you that have really worked hard this week, by completing set work and completing it well, giving it all your effort. It is lovely to be able to say there are too many of you to mention!

Keep it up and see you on Monday ready for another week. Just a little something for you to think about – if we were doing SATs this year, we would be starting on Monday!!

Have a lovely weekend; rest and relax ready for lots of learning next week.

Mrs. M 🙂

Well done Winterton! A celebration of week beginning Monday 26th April

Hello Winterton

Before I say anything else I must apologise for completely forgetting our Friday blog! We have been so busy that it slipped my mind. I’ll try not to let it happen again.

But here we are now. So far we have been learning about electricity, volcanoes, ration and proportion, decimals, Futurism, writing reports on unicorns and other flying horses, the Jabberwocky and how to tell someone our name and age in French, knowing the vocabulary for things we can find in the classroom – again in French – and we have a lot more learning still to do before half term!

We have had fun drawing what we imagine the characters to look like in the poem ‘Jabberwocky’ by Lewis Carroll.

Here is some of our work:

I need to say well done to a few people in particular this week:

Grace for making a presentation about volcanoes; Isla for writing a report on electricity; Kai and Kylie for hard work in maths,  learning about decimals with Miss Shelbourne, on Wednesday; and Amanda for her peer coaching also in maths.

Don’t forget it is Bank Holiday on Monday, so we’ll see on back in school on Tuesday 5th May.

Have a lovely weekend

Mrs. Marshall

Winterton PE

Posted on Monday, April 12th, 2021

Hi everyone

Just to remind you that your PE is on Tuesday, so remember to come to school in your PE kit tomorrow. Swimming is on Friday as last term.

Winterton Wonders!

Posted on Friday, March 19th, 2021

We have yet again been working hard this week. We have begun a new literacy unit on Unicorns and Flying Horses, writing ‘faction’ – a non-fiction format using fictional ideas. Today we have written about the special powers of a Storm Unicorn and the wishes any unicorn can grant humans.

Congratulations to Kylie who received a Superstar Award for her literacy work, and Kai who received a Superstar Award for his independent maths work this morning. Also many thanks to Evie’s nan who supported our fund raising for Red Nose Day today (she has received her own Superstar Award!).

Today we have designed our own superhero masks (see photo below) and our own red noses to be displayed around the class to cheer us up if we start to feel gloomy!

I wish you all a happy and restful weekend and I look forward to seeing you all again on Monday for our last week of this term. (We finish Friday 25th March at 3.10 pm.)

Super Cat (aka Mrs. M :))

 

A really well done Winterton!

Posted on Friday, March 12th, 2021

Well done to everyone who has been at school this week – we made it to Friday! It has been very exciting to have you back again; I didn’t realise quite how much I missed you all. We have been busy this week, getting back into routine and all the demands being in year 6 brings. You have managed so well all of you. It is almost as if you have never been away. You all deserve a good rest this weekend so you are ready for another full week next week.

We have a new member of Winterton class this week – Rosy. Well done Rosy – you have settled in to our class well and I’m sure you will be an asset to us!

We have had our first swimming session for quite a while today. I hope you all enjoyed it!

Finally, here are some pictures of Theo’s marble run (the DT assignment).

Well done – the only person to have submitted this assignment!

Once again. a big thank you to you all for this week – just think what you can achieve next week!

Hi Everyone.

It has been lovely seeing you this week and receiving your wonderful work. Thank you so much those of you who have engaged with your learning and made progress.

https://web.microsoftstream.com/video/4d4693dc-efe3-4e31-98d4-eb07fab29716  This is the link to the literacy lesson. I have also put it on Teams.

Just a few notes ready for next week.

The same rules will be in place about no phones, PE kit on Monday for us, the one-way system, no mixing with other bubbles and eating lunch in the classroom. But it will be lovely to all be together again.

Swimming will be on Friday afternoon – you do not need to come to school in your swimming kit though!

If you have any questions, please email me and I will answer tomorrow mornning.

 

See you all very soon

Mrs. M

Well done Winterton

Well it’s been a week hasn’t it?

We have all been working hard on the live lessons. It is lovely to see you all at home, and also good to see all the work you are submitting. The live lessons are a little strange though as well. The children who are in school like seeing you on the screen, but we will all be pleased to get back to normal and be in class again.

It has been good to see the progress you have made in your learning – it is clear who has been keeping up.

Keep up with the good work and I look forward to seeing you on Monday morning for registration at 8.50

Mrs. M

Welcome Winterton to the second half of year 6!

Posted on Monday, February 22nd, 2021

 

Hello everyone

Welcome back to school and I hope you all had a relaxing break, or that you caught up on missing literacy and numeracy.

This half term will see changes to your remote learning. We will have registration and live lessons every day on Teams via the General channel in our class team. You should have received a notification for our first meeting on Tuesday 23rd at 9.30 am. This will be a meeting to say hello to every one and talk about what will be happening the rest of the week.  Also this will be the last blog you will access via our website. From next week all your work will be in our class team. Try logging into Teams using your Microsoft 365 account to see what it looks like.

You will be expected to log in to all our meetings and live lessons every day from Tuesday. I will schedule them after our meeting on Tuesday, so you will receive notifications of these as I do that. Remember if you have a problem with devices or broadband connections, contact the school office and they will see if they can help.

OK now here is this week’s work:
