Hi Owls, I hope your April has got off to a flying start! 

You have almost reached the end of week 2 of learning from home so a massive WELL DONE! I know it is very different to being in the classroom but you are all doing a superb job and are definitely flying high!! 

I am going to school next week so I am going to collect Snowy as I thought this would be a lovely place for me to keep you updated on his travels as he cannot come and see you all each weekend at the moment! I will look after him well I promise!! 

Keep sending me your fabulous work picture, I LOVE seeing them all! 

Miss Stone :) 


Hello Owls! 

I just thought I would check in and let you know about Numbots! We didn't get the chance to talk about it in class however it is a fantastic online maths resource that you can access through Times table Rock stars. You can also download the app directly to your device and the sign in details are exactly the same as your TTRS login. 

I have seen some of you have found it already and had a go so well done! Numbots is very similar to TTRS however, you have your own robot that you create and earn money to make it better by completing a number of challenges. TTRS focuses on your times tables and division, whereas Numbots focuses on your addition and subtraction. Give it a go! It's FAB!

Speck Atomic-55 is my name - see if you can beat me! 

It has been lovely to receive some emails from some of you this week showing me your learning. Thank you for making me smile. My email address is at the top if you want to keep me updated. I would love to hear from you. 

Keep working hard and being excellent Merley Learners! 

Miss Stone :D


Good evening Owls - I hope you are all well and have settled into your first week at home. 

I have been catching up on my reading and have been reading some books in preparation for our return to school. My favourite so far has been 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes (Not the Marvel one!) 

I'm sure many of you have been keeping up with your reading, be sure to keep writing it in your reading records. I think I am going to be handing out a lot of raffle tickets when we get back!!! 

When you next read some of your book have a think about these questions:

1) Why do I like this book? 

2) What genre is the book written in?

3) Can I predict what I think will happen next? 

My email address is above, how about you send me an email and let me know all about your books that you are reading right now! I would love to hear from you! 

Keep smiling :D

Miss Stone


Hello Owls!

I hope the sun is making you smile :)

It is FANTASTIC to see so many of you logging onto Times Table Rock stars and Bug Club so far this week!

I am incredibly proud of how hard you have worked so far this year in Owl Class, I hope you continue with this enthusiasm at home too! 

Keep working hard.

Miss Stone :)
