Welcome!

What glorious weather on the weekend! I know it's spring when I am see clothes swaying on clotheslines, and can smell freshly cut grass. I hope you have been able to do something outside, enjoying this time of year. 

And Happy Birthday to Alex and Tarun who celebrate birthdays this week. Many happy returns! 

There are new lessons for Beth's and Kelly's eurythmy lessons and also for Latin. Check these out on the "Specialists" page.

Last week I had a little trouble uploading answers to Thursday's maths. I have just put them up and you will find them where they should be: on the "Creative Writing, Week 2" page, under Friday's "Yesterday's Maths Answers" button.

I have received about half the students' wish for the class. I can see you have put a lot of thought into your answers - they are very heartfelt. Thank you very much for sharing them with us. I would like everyone to take some time to read through them, and if you haven't sent yours in, do it today and I will make a second list.

Have a lovely day,

Larissa

Welcome to Tuesday's lessons... and some more of your beautiful wishes. Send yours in if you haven't done so yet.

My wish for the class is that we could all be back at school again very soon, and that when we are, I wish that we could have a special celebration of some kind together. I also wish for us all to treasure the joyful things in our lives.  

I hope it's not too windy for you today to get outside and enjoy a walk or a relaxing sit in your garden with a cup of tea of some kind.

Have a delightful day. 

I am missing you all very much.

Warmest wishes, Larissa

Good morning Class 7,

Our Main Lesson today has a bit of writing. Remember to take some breaks. I have been working for 30 minutes and then walking for 10 - or doing some sort of job like putting away some dishes. You might find short work times and then doing something completely different for a few minute is quite refreshing. Another tip is to take a break half way through a sentence. That way, when you come back to your work you can pick up from where you left off...

 

Have a great day!

Love Larissa

Hiya! Second last day of the term...

Only a little ways to go now, Class 7 and you will be on holidays!

What will change in your daily routine, I wonder. There have been no buses to catch, so after-school plans, no timetabled lessons at school to take a break from, no early mornings, no lunch boxes to pack and unpack. How can you make your holidays feel like a holiday? While you ponder this question you can get started on today's work!

Enjoy your afternoon too!

Love Larissa

Hi everyone - here we are at Friday!

Claire and John Elliott have put a spring video together, as an ode to the spring festival. You can watch it here:

I hope you enjoy today's lessons. The order for today is:

Do the blue buttons first, then watch the video of me introducing today's task, and lastly, look at the green icons. 

Have a good rest over the break and I will see you, even if remotely for a while, on the other side of the holidays.

 

Thinking of you all, and missing you very much.

Love Larissa
