Welcome to Boris’ Blog!
Hi Lynx Class,
Hope you are all keeping safe and staying at home! I am missing you and it is very quiet in the classroom without you all. Miss Blagden has taken me home so that I can do my learning at home and am not all alone. I will post some pictures of my home learning to show you what I have been up to.
Week beginning 29th June
Boris has been loving space adventures with his friends in school. His favourite story linked to space was ‘The Boy Who Switched off the Sun!’ Can you predict what would happen if we switched off the sun?
This week Boris also became an astronaut on PurpleMash!
Week Beginning 22nd June
Boris enjoyed learning about transport. He took the children down to the low road entrance and they conducted a traffic survey. The children counted the number of vehicles that travelled past the school over 5 minutes. The children recorded their findings. Boris saw lots of cars and lorries. He also saw a freight train, tractor and a motorbike!
Week beginning 15th June
Boris has loved being back in the classroom with his friends. Although, he is not allowed to be held by the children at the moment, he has taken position above the SMART TV and has been watching the children complete their learning and play. He has discovered a lot about Pokémon this week, as Rory and Charlie have been telling him about their favourite characters. Boris has also watched his first Pokémon film during lunch times this week too, which was really exciting!
Week Beginning 8th June
Boris has been busy making a social story to help the children returning to school next week. He can’t wait to see his friends!
Week Beginning 1st June
Boris was really excited about this weeks topic, Summer. He had got himself all ready to enjoy the sunshine safely at the beginning of the week but disaster struck when the sun disappeared and the rain came day after day!
Seeing as he had to stay inside, Boris decided he would catch up on his PurpleMash 2Dos and enjoyed designing his own swimwear and ice creams! Yum!
Half Term Week
Boris has enjoyed his half term holiday, especially as the sun has been shining. He has enjoyed playing out in the garden and has a new golf set and has been practicing his putting shots. He has also enjoyed having a splash in the paddling pool too.
Boris has also been reading a story about a little boy called George the Sun Safe Superstar. Boris has decided to be a Sun Safe Superstar himself and has got his factor 50 sun lotion at the ready. He says he hopes everyone else is staying safe in the sun too. Check out next weeks FS2 Home Learning Plan for details about how you can find George’s special story too.
This week Boris has also been working towards his Astrea Promise Rainbow award by hosting a Teddy Bears Picnic. He says do you recognise any of the friends he invited to his picnic?
Thursday 21st May
Boris has really been enjoying the Astrea Festival of Kindness this week. Today, he went to school with Mrs Bradley and Mrs Duffty and went on a nature trail to collect natural resources to bring back into the classroom to make a collage to represent something that makes you happy. Boris chose to create a picture of a house- he said it makes him happy when he gets to come and visit his friend’s homes at a weekend and he is really missing you all! Have you completed a collage?
Tuesday 19th May
Boris is excited about the ‘Astrea Festival of Kindness’ and decided to be kind to himself this morning by having a ‘lay in’. He chilled out in his PJs all morning and caught up on his favourite TV program, Paddington Bear. How are you going to be kind to yourself this week?

Boris has been remembering to read everyday. Today he chose to read about Peppa Pig’s adventure to the zoo.

Remember Mrs Mason is looking for children reading books in unusual places. Boris is putting his thinking hat on and is going to find somewhere very unusual to read… watch this space!
