Miss Lindop's Diary

Friday 27th March 2020


Today was a fun day. After breakfast, I had a working morning with my step-daughter Madisyn. She is in year 6 and was doing a writing challenge set by one of her teachers. That inspired me to update the website for you all - despite a few technical difficulties. (No Mr Moss required for once). You will find some extra work set for those of you who are looking for some challenges. Also, I have updated Education City so that you can all be kept busy with maths, grammar and some science revision smiley 


After lunch, as a family we made the most of being up on the moors again with Poppy.



Social isolation at its best!

I spend most weekends up here taking Poppy for long walks. She loves running through the grass and rolling about everywhere - although annoyingly sometimes in poo!


As you can see below, Poppy is loving life smileyyes
























Tonight, I think I may try and get back into knitting and a bit more reading for pleasure. I hope you all have a good weekend and I will update you all on Monday. smiley

Today was a glorious day so as a family we went up to a place called Crompton Moor to take our dog Poppy for a long walk. The views were spectacular. At the top you can see Manchester, Oldham and Rochdale.  There weren't many people so it was perfect for social isolation. 


After that, Poppy needed a bath as she had managed to find the deepest, muddiest puddle! She was not impressed! Ha ha smiley


At 8pm, we stood at our window and applauded the NHS. Some of our neighbours joined in too. Did you get involved?

I hope you are all well and enjoying the sunshine - hopefully in a safe place like your garden. 


Keep busy. I will be checking the school Facebook and Twitter feeds to see what you have all been up to.

I thought about telling you about yesterday - but I was only on cleaning duties, and school, which I am sure you don't want to hear about!

So today...

has been a relatively busy day. I went to school - as I did yesterday - but I was not needed so I drove all the way home again. On my way home, I thought that maybe I should get some essential food shopping before it was too busy - not for toilet rolls. I can reassure you of that! One of the children in class last week shared and idea that perhaps people were going to use the toilet paper as a feature wall decoration - I need to decorate but not that desperately!


Then, I spent some time adding some maths to Education City and updating our class page. Poppy (my beagle) tried to join in, even tried typing on the keyboard but in the end got bored. Instead of helping, she took to sleeping (not unusual). I am going to wake her now (hopefully she won't be too grumpy with me) and take her out for our one dose of exercise. 























I hope that you are all keeping busy and are being good at home. I hope that you are keeping your brains and bodies busy - even helping adults around the home. You could even try a Joe Wicks' PE lesson. I will be doing one of his workouts later.


Here's the link if you need it for today's workout.
