Duckling Class

Welcome to Duckling Class!

 

Hello & welcome to Duckling Class. 

 smiley

In Duckling class Mrs Kimmins is our Teacher from Monday to Thursday.  Mrs Tainton teaches us on a Friday.  On a Wednesday we are lucky because Mr Furse teaches us P.E. and Mr Simpson takes us to the Forest School. 

 

Mrs Leach & Miss Warren are our Classroom Assistants, who always help us.

 

 

Hi,

We hope that you and your lovely family are well.

Some of the class have been uploading their work project work, or work that they have completed, to their own personal page on Purple Mash:

If you would like to do this to, then please follow these simple steps:

  1. At the top of the Purple Mash home screen is an orange book which says work underneath it. Please click on this.
  2. Then, a purple strip of tabs can be seen near the top of the screen, click on the upload button.
  3. Now, a box will appear saying Drop files here or click to browse your computer. You can now upload your work or photos.
  4. After you have completed this, can you please send me an email as I cannot set up an alert for your individual pages.

 

Also, when you are working on Purple Mash 2Dos, can you please remember to click on hand in work.

We also wanted to say thank you and a massive well done for being such a superstar completing work from home. We know that this is an odd situation, that we find ourselves in, and we are very proud of you. We hope that you are enjoying the project work and finding out many interesting facts about your family.

Have a very Happy Easter and fingers crossed we can all enjoy some more of this gorgeous sunshine!

Stay safe and have fun!

Mrs Gibbon, Mrs Kimmins & Mrs Tainton
