Let us share school life in lockdown from Skye’s perspective. Skye is one of Fyling Hall’s Year 6 pupil’s and happens to be one of key worker’s children.
As we are in lockdown, Fyling Hall is only open to key worker children. We are in a bubble with the other key worker children and go to school at the normal times. Year 6 work in the ICT room for most of the school week, as most of our lessons are online, but we still have the fun activity of Forest School to look forward to. Our teacher, Mrs Richardson, is making all our lessons fun and interesting.
In maths, we are learning about BIDMAS, and it has been fun learning all about the order we do number operations in.
In English, we are reading and writing about myths and legends. It is a lovely topic to do because every myth/legend contains an element of magic. We are going to be writing our own myths soon, and I can’t wait!
Science, my favourite subject, is about forces. Mrs Richardson has demonstrated the experiments we would have been doing in class on the video calls we have been attending.
PE has been fun, when it isn’t raining, as we go on a lovely walk to the mill through the forest and back. For geography, we have Miss Vincent Jones, the teacher we had last year. It is lovely to see and talk to her.
As much as I am enjoying the quietness of the school, I hope it returns to normal soon, as I am missing everyone.
