Class Blog for Cawsand


A fantastic time has been had by all...

As you can see from the pictures, we have been enjoying some truly varied learning both at home and at school.

We have created the phases of the moon using biscuits.  We've created some super art including a some dark looking space art and I had a lovely watercolour from Riley based on the creation story.  We are earning certificates and these will be ready for collection from school when we are back.
A guide for next weeks leaning has been uploaded which also lists next week's spellings.

Online learning.

Well done Cawsand.  The first week of Lockdown 3.0 completed with a great big tick.  We are at the start of a steep learning curve, discovering how to log on, upload, edit and turn in work- all online.   What has impressed us most is how you have shared tips and advice with your friends about how to complete the tasks set and work with the technology - thank you.  We are sure it will get easier as we progress and as we challenge ourselves.  

Thank you also to our parents and carers who are battling, not only with their own schedules, but who are also now helping to complete tasks and find resources whilst being IT & technology gurus - thank you. 

Enjoy your weekend and we look forward to seeing you Monday morning via Teams.

Thanks again to all,

Mr Knight and Mrs McNeil

English lessons in Cawsand.

This week, we have been writing about the Titanic disaster.  Having researched the disaster the previous week, we have created non chronological reports.  Next week, we will begin to look at our next writing project, Little Red Riding Hood.  We will base our work on the traditional tale, but we might get the chance to add a little twist!


What a week! 

On Wednesday the 11th, at 11am, we observed a 2 minutes silence, lest we forget.

Contrast Poem Recital

We shared some amazing contrast poem.  We were awash with antonyms and, having viewed some professional poetry recitals, we enjoyed a number of recitals that engaged the audience with their physicality.

And to finish the week off, cake. Congratulations Cawsand.  10,000 points achieved and cake enjoyed.


Competition time!

Our first week done!

Hopefully, everyone had an enjoyable first week back at Brunel and in Cawsand Class. 

We have started our new topic, 'Why cross the Atlantic?' And we have been out on the playground using our compass point knowledge to navigate.  Everyone now has a reading book and reading record.  Children will keep these 'safe' in their desk and although they will be periodically reviewed, they won't handled/written in by anyone else at school.  It remains important that reading continues at least 5 times a week.

Times Tables and '99 club' have now started again and I look forward to seeing the everyone making speedy progress through the levels.

Have a good weekend,

Mr Knight
