Kobi Nazrul - Primary School

Stay Home Year 6


Mahiyah - Hi everyone, just thought I'd come on and say hello (after a very long time!). Same Haani, I haven't been on in ages, I thought the blog would be closed for the summer holidays! I'm also doing homework, but I'm nearly finished now. :-D I've got my uniform, and it's too big for me! It's not that uncomfortable though (thankfully!). So, what's everyone been doing? Hope you're all well.

Haani - I havenโ€™t written on the blog in ages so um, i just wanted to say hi and iโ€™m currently doing the homework i got from mulberry!

Ariyan and fardeen - hello everyone eid Mubarak hopefully you had a great time ok bye ๐Ÿ˜ƒ stay safe and alert ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‹ - eid Mubarak

Farhan H - Secondary school - uniforms are so uncomfortable ๐Ÿ˜’

Mahiyah - Marwa, when I tried to join the meeting on Saturday it said that the meeting was scheduled for the 24/05/2020, and it wasn't letting me in even though I typed in the right details, so I couldn't join, sorry. (I had a splitting headache that day anyway, I probably wouldn't have been able to talk much.) :'( It doesn't matter that much though, we can still see each other at the graduation in September hopefully, I can't wait for it! :-) Please tell Wasilah I said hello.

Waqeea - Marwa do have buuuut I donโ€™t play it my sister does.

Mahiyah - Thanks Marwa, I really appreciate it, I'll try to join on Saturday. I don't think I've got anything at the same time. I know I said it before but I'll say it again - I'm going to miss you lots, lots. LOTS. :'( But my cousin goes to CFGS (Central Foundation), so maybe I can send you messages through her? (She's a year older than us and her name is Nuaimah, I don't know if you'll see her though, there are so many girls at CFGS.) See you on Saturday then, and hopefully at the graduation in Autumn.

Marwa - Sure Mahiyah Iโ€™ll arrange another meeting how about hmm ๐Ÿค”.............. Saturday 3:30 ๐Ÿ•ž? Also I think ๐Ÿค” the trip YOU GUYS (so sad I wasnโ€™t there ๐Ÿ˜”) went there in year 2. Btw Iโ€™m still depressed that I wasnโ€™t there but Iโ€™ll get over it eventually.

Ruqayyah - Hi , Anthony I have just sent a picture of my tomatoes on the WhatsApp . ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Mahiyah - Anthony, I've put my story back up on Drive again. It's not perfect as I'm still working on it, but I hope you like it. Like I said before, I'm not 100% sure if it will be available for everyone. I've put it under pupil again like before. Let me know if you read it please. And Marwa, if you want to do another meeting to make up for the one you missed we can do one if you like. Can you do it at a time not too close to prayer time or lunchtime please? (my lunch is normally around 2:00.) And since we're going to use the same details can you remember to reschedule it please? But if you can't organize one it's fine, it was just a suggestion. By the way I'll miss you too, lots. :'(

Anthony - Marwa - I'm afraid this trip was before you joined Kobi... so maybe that is a clue about what year it was in! It is a very famous building though, so maybe you can work it out with your family's help!

Anthony - Ruqayyah - That is great news. Could you send in a WhatsApp photo for me to see? And maybe write on here to tell me, and I'll go and look at the school mobile. (I don't get to see everything now that we're partly back to school.)

Mahiyah - I'm glad you're so determined to keep improving the story. Even if I could read a draft that would make me happy. I'm not sure what the plans are for the blog, but I wonder if it will close because everyone will be busy again with the new school year.

Marwa - Anthony did you arrange a meeting for me and my friends because apparently itโ€™s supposed to be on the 13th but I got a message on the 14th?

Marwa - No mahiyah itโ€™s not that I COMPLETELY forgot I had a meeting coz my alarm didnโ€™t go off so Iโ€™m srry mahiyah and waqeea for leaving u hanging next time Iโ€™ll try not to forget. Also Anthony you know the picture u put on this weekโ€™s newsletter where you are going on a trip, was I even there!?

Mahiyah - Anthony, even after the summer holidays will this blog be here, because if it is we can all talk to each other even though we'll be at different schools to make up for the time we missed during lockdown.

Ruqayyah - Hi Anthony I would just like to tell you we now have 7 tomatoes and more growing . ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ˜„

Marwa - No I didnโ€™t forget the meeting. The reason I didnโ€™t come woz coz I set an alarm for 3:30 ๐Ÿ•ž but it didnโ€™t go off.๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ should we arrange another 1 just to say good bye ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป but this time with ALL our friends so we can ALL say goodbye?! I think ๐Ÿค” it would be a great ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป zoom meeting just so we can say goodbye ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป 1 last time. Btw waqeea do u hav Roblox coz I hav it and I need ur username, ooooooor u could friend me my user name is TAG_2468. just when u friend me send me a message so I know ur online so we can play together ๐Ÿ˜. Going to miss u all gรผle gรผle ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป (goodbye in Turkish) ๐Ÿ˜Š

Mahiyah - Marwa when u use the same ID and password again u have 2 reschedule the meeting again if u want 2 have another meeting. The same thing happened on Saturday at 5:40, u didn't reschedule it that's why I couldn't join. If u reschedule another meeting tell us what time it'll be at, but it'll have to be after 2:00 because I've got school. Tell me a few days be4 plz so I can c if I'm free. Thx.

Waqeea - Marwa did u forget about the meeting.it was supposed to be at 03:30 wasn't it.๐Ÿค”

Mahiyah - Sorry Anthony, but I've deleted my story from Google Drive because I've got some last minute editing to do. I'll put it up again as soon as I'm done, but I'm not quite sure when that'll be because I think of something new to add and edit everyday. I've edited my story so much since I first wrote it it's quite different from the original now.

Waqeea - Marwa-yes it was awesome ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

Waqeea - Ye it was awesome.i haven't spoken to you guys in such a long time.BTW mariyah I got the same langue as u.๐Ÿ˜Š

Mahiyah - Waqeea that's great news! I can't wait to find out what forms we're in to see if we're in the same class. Marwa, I'm free straight after the Yr6 Zoom meeting, maybe we can do it then if everyone else is free? Anthony, I've managed to put my story up, if you go onto the school Google Drive my story should be there. There wasn't a Bakerloo folder so I couldn't put it in the class literacy folder, so I just put it in the pupil folder. It might also be under "Quick Access". It should be available to everyone, but I'm not 100% sure. Let me know if you read it please.

Ruqayyah - hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Marwa - I think ๐Ÿค” your right mahiyah we should arrange a time a little less towards prayer time so we can hav more time to chat ๐Ÿ’ญ.

Anthony - Marwa - It's great to see that you are focussing on staying safe.

Arisha - That's no problem - I completely understand it's easy to get muddled up at the minute. I'm pleased that you're working hard.

Marwa - Wasnโ€™t our zoom meeting awesome ๐Ÿ˜Ž waqeea and mahiyah. If any of my other friends want 2 join just let me know and we will arrange a time so u guys can join. This time Iโ€™ll send the details on the blog probably just because I canโ€™t be asked to write the code and password individually. Like I said just let me know when ur free. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿคฉ

Waqeea - I got French

Waqeea - Mahiyyah great news they put me down for french so hopefully we're in the same class.๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Mahiyah - Sorry I came half an hour late to today's class zoom meeting today Anthony, I was reading and lost track of the time...sorry again. Also, if I signed into Google Drive with my school details will it come up with the school things like 'Pupil' and the rest because if it does I might be able to put my story up. (I'll try to put it in the literacy folder and I'll call it 'Mahiyah's Story' if it works. I'll let you know if it does.) Oh another thing, we've got 4 small trees in our garden, cherry, apple, pear and plum. We have a few unripe pears and apples but no plums. We've also had about 3 ripe cherries but they're so sour! Only my older sister likes them and the rest of us are wondering how she likes them! Hope we get some plums soon as they're my favourite.
Really enjoyed the zoom meeting today Marwa and Waqeea, we should arrange another one soon at a time when we're all free - and maybe at a time not too close to prayer time so we have more time to talk?

Arisha - Anthony I got Wednesday's and Thursday's newsletter homework mixed up so on Wednesday I did Thursday's homework instead.

Marwa - Also even tho they canโ€™t join theyโ€™ll still know my details and my dad doesnโ€™t like that

Marwa - Ok u 2 just come to this weeks zoom meeting with Anthony and we can sort it out then.

Waqeea - Can we do Sunday

Waqeea - Could we do it later than that if possible cause I'm hi to my grans every Saturday

Mahiyah - I'm really sorry that I couldn't join last Thursday either Marwa. I was planning 2 join, but I went 2 collect the school H/W pack and I came back too late. Sorry again. And Marwa, last time we had a zoom meeting u only gave the password. Can u send the meeting ID as well this time plz, otherwise I can't join. Also, it doesn't matter if other ppl c the details coz even if they try 2 join the host (which is u) can send them out of the meeting if they don't recognize their name. I only suggested the blog coz something might happen so u can't send the details, that way we'd have a backup but I don't think that'll happen. Still, u never know. Oh, and if you're going 2 do another meeting after tell me plz before u arrange it coz I might not be free. By the way I'm going 2 either join with my name or my sister's name (Aafrin), or maybe with a phone brand (probably Galaxy something, I've forgotten) coz I might use my mum's phone, so don't send me out by mistake plz. And yes it's this Saturday at 5:40. C u then.And this question is 4 the whole class - Who's going back to school?

Mahiyah - Marwa, last time we had a zoom meeting u only gave the password. Can u send the meeting ID as well this time plz, otherwise I can't join. Also, it doesn't matter if everyone else sees the details coz even if they try 2 join the host (which is u) can send them out of the meeting if they don't recognize their name.

And yes it's Saturday 5:40. C u then.And this question is 4 the whole class - Who's going back to school?

Marwa - Waqeea join next zoom meeting and Iโ€™ll send the details then join on Saturday at I think it was 5:40 (make sure u set an alarm) mainly coz I cant send the details on the blog coz other ppl could c it soooooo yh.

Waqeea - Marwa-um rlly sorry I couldn't make it to your zoom meeting.maybe next time.๐Ÿ˜…

Waqeea - Sorry that I missed it Marwa I was staying at my grans.

Mahiyah - Marwa u can always send me the meeting ID and password on the blog if u want 2 but it doesn't matter. Either way is fine. I hope Waqeea joins. Then it'll be all of us together again. Just like the old times... :-)

Waqeea - Sorry I could not come on Thursday I was rlly busy
Can we do today at 4

Anthony - Ruqayyah - Thatโ€™s fantastic news. I canโ€™t wait to hear more about them. Well done for being determined with our Friday zoom quiz when you were struggling with the connection.

Anthony - Yaseen - WOW! What an amazing basket that you scored in PE. I really enjoyed watching it on WhatsApp.

Ruqayyah - Hi Anthony, I just wanted to say that a flower has sprouted on the tomato plants wich means that some tomatoes will be growing soon , I cant wait. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ

Waqeea - WhT was the pass again Marwa cause it not letting me in

Yaseen - Hi everybody I am in school with james. We have been doing lots of work and PE everyday and tomorrow we will be druming with patrick

Marwa - Anthony donโ€™t worry Watsapp is now up and running so I guess weโ€™re back to normal. Phew ๐Ÿ˜….

Arisha - My advice to the new year 6s is that start working hard from the very beginning and it will all pay off.

Humayra B - Hi. To be honest I don't really know what to say


Anthony - Marwa - I NEARLY lost my WhatsApp this week too. Oliver thought it would be fun to steal my phone, run into the bathroom and try and throw it into the bath! My wife stopped him just in time! Phew!

Mahiyah - Oh my goodness! Oliver loves to climb, so I think he would really enjoy stairs. Maybe I should get him to try too.

EVERYONE - To answer the blog question of the week... I would have three pieces of advice to new year 6s: Work hard, don't worry about things, and learn your vocabulary!

Arafat - It is called sowlbay primary school or subway I asked what it was called but didnt ask how to spell it he guys hi Anthony

Marwa - And yes you made me feel welcome on the first day ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Marwa - Anthony due to current situation (please dont ask what) i cant send my homework but obviously i can do it so i guess you wont be hearing from me in a while on Watsapp. ๐Ÿ˜… About saving time and using the same zoom room twice next to where you hav to write the code there is a little arrow that you can press and it brings up all the zoom meetings youโ€™ve been to. And my advice for the next year 6 would be if cath is your teacher ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿซ dont get on her bad side ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Also if you are going to do the same zoom meeting as last week please send me the code and password (on the blog obviously because i cant use Watsapp) because i forgot to join last weeks zoom meeting ๐Ÿ˜”. (Sorry)

Mahiyah - Here are the answers for this week's quiz:
1) False. Zoophobia is a fear of a specific species of animals, not all animals.
2) Central Intelligence Agency (I know this because it comes up a lot in the books I'm reading.)
3) Bogota
4) 2

Farhan H - Not having Internet is making me read too much and that's the opposite of me when I had the Internet โ˜น๏ธ.

Mahiyah - I know how you feel Farhan H. My sister's already become obsessed with Lego, and we're always scared that she's going to break them or put them in her mouth! Yes Anthony, it was pretty ironic, and I actually blamed the chicks for a while before I realized that it was just a coincidence. And no, I haven't seen any chicks hatch since then. Sorry, I'm struggling a bit with putting my story up, but I'll let you know if I succeed. And guess what? My sister is only 9 months and she can go up a flight of about 13 stairs all by herself! :oShe tried it for the first time today and nobody even helped her one bit! Not only did she manage on her first go, but she wasn't even scared! In fact, she was laughing the whole time! We're going to have to put a gate up soon so that it doesn't become a habit and so she doesn't fall and hurt herself. ( I don't think she would ever fall anyway, not when she managed by herself on her first go.)

Anthony - Samik - Thanks for letting me know ๐Ÿ‘

Farhan H - Yes! Ollie is breaking lots of things. Mostly by climbing on them or standing on them! He wants to look out of the window or climb onto the sofa!

Marwa - One of my favourite things is how to save time. Can you tell me more about using the same Zoom room? I would really like to know. I hope that I made you feel welcome on your first day ๐Ÿ˜

Mahiyah - That's ironic isn't it, chicken pox when the chicks were here. Have you seen any chicks hatch at the school since then?

My first memory at the school is sitting on the green chairs on my first day. Then, when I went up to the year 5 classroom it was a bit different to how it is now. Instead of lining up on the playground the children would just come in by themselves (a bit like how we do when it is raining now.)

Farhan A - This is my all time Premier League team. I hope that Samik and Yaseen write back with theirs.

GK - Peter Schmeichel
LB - Ashley Cole
CB - Rio Ferdinand
CB - Kompany
RB - Kyle Walker
LM - Ryan Giggs
CM - Gerrard
CM - Kante
RM - Bekcham
FC - Cantona
FC - Thierry Henry

Mahiyah - I think one of my earliest memories is getting chicken pox in Reception. The funny thing is that at the time we had chicks from the farm! They hadn't hatched then and by the time I came back to school they'd hatched and been sent back. I still remember being really upset about that. :(

Arisha - Anthony, Thursday's comprehension is the same as Thursday 21st May 2020 homework so instead I will do the extra comprehension.

Marwa - Anthony you know that you can use the same zoom room twice so it saves time typing the code hope this was useful ๐Ÿ˜€Also for the question for the blog this week is probably when i had my first monday assembly and getting introduced for the firts time to Anthony and i think ๐Ÿค” the first person i ever met was Ruqayyah.

Waqeea - Anthony it my my math login worked. Butfor one of them I donโ€™t know anything about what should I do.๐Ÿค”

Samik - Anthony I tried my maths and it worked ๐Ÿ˜

Samik - Farhan A my dad had a meeting with Swanslea but it got cancelled so I donโ€™t really know whatโ€™s gonna happen

Farhan H - When my little brother learned to walked my house became hard. he broke so many things like vases and my Legos ๐Ÿ˜ข

Mahiyah - My baby sister's learnt to crawl now and she keeps picking things up from the floor and putting them in her mouth! And she loves to stand so she grabs on to things like the sofa and the bed and pulls herself up. She can't stand by herself though. I don't know what I'll do when she learns to walk!๐Ÿ˜จ

Anthony - Farhan H - Glad to hear that your house is bigger. Lots of room for your sister to run around when she starts to walk!

Farhan A - There are some really good questions there. I'm incredibly proud that you have asked about it. I hope that I answered them properly on the phone today. Please, please write back if you have more questions. And join our Zoom on Friday!

EVERYONE - Please join our Zoom on Friday. Download the FREE app, and take part in our fun quiz.

farhan A - Does any one have an update of what will happen to us in secondary school?

Farhan H - The house is a lot bigger then my last one but it only has 2 windows =/.

Ps:I don't know why but I am very good at drawing horror things ๐Ÿ˜

Ruqayyah - Thank you Anthony for that i will definitly try today.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„

farhan A - What is going to happen in secondary school when we go there? We have not done the year 6 secondary school visits that we were meant to do so how are we going to find out where our classrooms are and other things.
Please someone let me know and everyone else updated on the year 6 to year 7 transfer.

Anthony - Farhan H - That's exciting / terrifying to hear. Did you move house yet? What is your new house like?

Samik - Great to hear from you. We had a great quiz this week. Look out for the message on WhatsApp so that you can join us next week for the next one.

Ruqayyah - I don't know many ways to design an app. However, if you go to sites.google.com you can use your school Google account to create really cool websites.

Farhan A - Oh wow! What a team! I have been thinking a lot about mine, and it included quite a few of those players. I'll have a good think over the weekend and write back to you early next week. Keep an eye out so you can let me know what you think!

Ruqayyah - Sorry I accidentally wrote the wrong comment , so I don't need to know how to design an app๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ OOPS!!

farhan A - Anthony - my best ever premier league XI is GK- Peter Schmeichel LB- Cole CB- Terry
CB-Van Dijk RB- G Neville LM- Giggs CM-'Scholes CM- Gerrard RM-C.Ronaldo. ST- T.Henry. ST- Aguero or Shearer.

I couldn't decide with the last one, they are both really good. I'm excited to hear your best ever Premier League XI

Ruqayyah - Does anyone know how to design an app?

Marwa - Yes Anthony it was next to the staff room and it wasnt only 1 person who came to rescue me it was about umm 4 ๐Ÿ˜. Belinda said that it was an excuse to take off the railings but i even when i come back to school ๐Ÿซ (if i do) the railing would probably still b there. Any way moving away from that the answers to this weeks quiz are
1) ebony is a very deep black
2) before the iron age was the bronze age
3) im not sure because i cant quite hear wut the guy is saying

Samik - I forgot about the blog but Iโ€™m back now and farhan A Iโ€™ll tell you later my iPad has no charge.

Farhan H - I think i am talented at drawing eyes full of blood...

Arisha - Anthony I had a little taste of the Afghani from my mum and it is very different. This tea is a lot sweeter and is more like a treat. But it tastes very different then any other tea I have ever tasted.

Mahiyah - Here are some of the answers to this week's quiz:
1) Black
2) Bronze Age
3) Mont Blanc (White Mountain)
And yes Marwa, I do remember the time you got your arm stuck in the railing. It was in Yr4 before we went swimming I think. I'm not really sure what my funniest moment is though. There's been too many. :-) And my plan when I finish the H.I.V.E series is to read the Cogheart series Anthony ( I got them on Eid). I'm writing a story now. I've finished the first draft and now I'm editing it (I'll probably edit it at least 3 times though). P.S. I didn't answer the fourth question in the quiz because I don't watch any football.

Anthony - Farhan A - I like the sound of that challenge and have been thinking about my best team all day! If you post yours, then I will post mine too.

Arisha - I haven't ever tried that, but I like the sound of it! Did you try the sweet Afghani milk tea at one of our family breakfasts? Was it like that? My wife and I were celebrating the anniversary of our wedding at the weekend and had a special meal and had tea with it, made from tea leaves in a special teapot, rather than a normal tea bag.

Anzar - Well done for writing on the blog to get that sorted. They should get WhatsApped to your mum very soon.

Marwa - I remember that very clearly, and I'm glad you find it funny now. It was in the corridor near the staff room door wasn't it? Can you remember who came to rescue you?

Ruqayyah - That's great. I hope that it gives you a feeling of satisfaction that you have achieved something! It's very impressive! If I ever have a garden or balcony, I would like to grow herbs or spices.

Ruqayyah - Hi Anthony , I just wanted to tell you that my tomato plants have grown noticebly higher that you can almost see them when you go outside our building. ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚

Marwa - Hanni Iโ€™m also growing strawberries ๐Ÿ“

Marwa - Hi everyone Eid mubarak Iโ€™m extremely late sorry... But i saw the question for this week on was app and i figured Iโ€™d come back and when i did i only realised that everyone has been on the blog for the whole of the holiday ๐Ÿ˜ฌ. So i will answer this weeks question on the blog! The funniest thing that has happened in Kobi Nazrul is...... idk ๐Ÿ˜ ummm i guess its when i got my arm stuck in the railing. We literally had to the oil anyone remember that. ppl still remind me of that day. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Anzar - Anthony, i forgot my my maths login and my old reading records with my passwords in them are in the bin

farhan A - I've got a challenge for you guys. Pick your best ever premier league starting 11 with any single player who played in the league such as ronaldo, gerrard.

And yes Samik I did finally post on the blog I forgot about it

Arisha - Has anyone ever tried a Malaysian tea called tea tarik? It is sweet and the only tea I drink but I don't advise to have it daily as it will probably be unhealthy as it is very sugary. I have it every 2 months as we don't have a lot of it and I think you can only find it in Malaysia.
Ps: sorry for writing a paragraph about tea ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃโ˜•โ˜•โ˜•โ˜•

Samik - Farhan A you finally went on the blog

Anthony - Zain - If you come back onto our blog, tell us what your new school is like.

Samik - Belinda is going to keep your parents updated about what is happening by (Zoom) coffee mornings and asking some staff to phone your parents and talk to them.

Haani - Thatโ€™s great to hear! What a great way to spend your time during lockdown! Iโ€™ve grown strawberries before (and mine were green for ages too.) I havenโ€™t grown chilies or coriander though. What are these plants like?

Farhan A - Hey guys I hope you all are well and staying indoors. I also got good news ... the premier league will resume on the 17th of June which means Liverpool will win the PL ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

Haani - Hi guys, this is random but i just wanted to tell you all about the plants that iโ€™m growing at home! Iโ€™m growing, strawberries, coriander and chilliโ€™s! The strawberries are green at the moment but thereโ€™s a lot of them!

Samik - Is school actually going to open on June Anthony?

Haani - Eid Mubarak ! (I know iโ€™m late, i forgot about the blog ๐Ÿ˜ฌ)

Anthony - Arisha - That's great to hear. Thanks for sharing. I'd love to see your finished book cover when you're done.

Rayhan - I've had Moroccan Mint Tea, but never Turkish Tea. What can you tell me about it?

Samik - Let everyone know your score, and we'll see if anyone can beat it. (I think Yaseen would score really highly.)

Ariyan - That's great to hear. Let us know if you try any other quizzes. Sporcle is one of my favourite websites, especially because there are quizzes to match lots of different interests.

Farhan H - He is good - thank-you for asking. He now enjoys lots of new foods, such as hummus, olives, sandwiches and even pineapple. His favourite thing to do at the moment is to climb on EVERYTHING! How is your sister doing?

Farhan H - Anthony how's Oliver?

Ariyan - Hello Anthony i got 100% at sporcle and it was superhero quiz i got full mark and everyone eid Mubarak i hope you all did great at eid

Ruqayyah - I kind of got to visit my family as I waved to them from our car from 2 metere distance. Only some of our closest family we also delivered some home made cupcakes to their doors . ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿง๐Ÿง๐Ÿซ๐Ÿซ. It got a bit emotional as we won't aloud to go inside their house to see the families who we didn't wave to we did a video call to them . Did anyone else do anything to see their family on Eid day ?

Omar - Who else wants to visit family members but they can't?

Mahiyah - Eid Mubarak!

Ruqayyah - Eid Mubarak everybody ,hope you all have a great day . ๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘—๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

Omar - Eid mubarak

Samik - Also Anthony donโ€™t think thatโ€™s the only max score coming on sporcle

Samik - Max score coming soon on sporcle (European footballers) ๐Ÿ˜

Khadija - rayhans jokes are so bad Iโ€™m just laughing abt his hair๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ’€

Rayhan - Ges wat I learned how to make Turkish tee and normal tee and coffe ever since I knew how to make it everyone kept on telling me to make them some and it is kinda annoying

Arisha - Anthony I made my presentation on a samsung phone. I went into samsung notes typed up my presentation and then I added Images by pressing something that looks like a paperclip. After I tapped on 3 circes connected by a line and saved it as a pdf then sent it to school WhatsApp.
Also I have not finished with my cogheart book cover because I have been drawing Ramadan pictures but I have nearly finished.

Anthony - Thanks for the activity suggestions. I will use them for the first newsletter after half-term.

Ruqayyah - Great to hear about the tomatos. I enjoyed the photo on WhatsApp too.

Mahiyah - I'm glad that you're enjoying them. Have you got a plan for when they are all finished?

Sajida - What cooking have you been helping your mum with lately?

Waqeea - What has your baby sister been up to?

Arisha - Have you been drawing any book covers recently? If not, what have you been up to? Please can you tell me how you made that that amazing Anglo Saxon document?

Rayhan - How is the fasting going? Nearly there!

Zain:) - Hi guys how is it going i miss everyone STAY SAFE

Arisha - It's so close to eid I can't believe it, ramadan has gone so fast. This Eid will be very different without family gatherings.

Marwa - I think ๐Ÿค” number 3 is steak ๐Ÿฅฉ. And also this morning i finished the Quran with my dad and sister. Has anyone else tried to do this in ramadan? Also its nearly Eid can u believe it (also its my brothers b-day.)

Mahiyah - Yes Anthony, I'm really enjoying the H.I.V.E series and I would definitely recommend them, and I'm now reading the fourth book in the series ( there are 8 books in total). Maybe an exercise for next week could be to see how long you can do the plank for?

Ruqayyah - Quiz awnswers
1 . Pangolins
2. Quiditch -i cannot be sure as i am not a huge fan of harry Harry Potter
3. Cow
4. Florence nightingale

Ruqayyah - My tomato plants are growing, but they are still quite small . ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
Also I think the answer to question 3 MIGHT be cow but I can't be sure . ๐Ÿ„

Arisha - Marwa I think question 3 is a steak (I think, not know ) Ps it's nice to change the topic and not talk about rayhan's hair.

Ruqayyah - Anthony an exercise for next weeks newsletter could be how many kick ups can you do ,or how long can you dribble for. Another idea is making an obstacle course at home maybe you can send a picture on WhatsApp.

Anthony - Marwa - Last clue for number 3 then... this animal mostly eats grass.

Ruqayyah - How are your tomato plants doing?

Mahiyah - Are you enjoying the HIVE series? Would you recommend them?

All football fans - Did you anyone watch any of the Bundesliga?

Marwa - These r the actual answers to questions 1 (i hope) aardvark. but im not entirely sure about question 3.

Omar - Im back and I hope all of you are ok

Anthony - Hello Bakerloo Class,

Can anyone help me out? I need some new exercise ideas for the class newsletter. Each answer is worth 2 Hojo points (home dojo points.)

Marwa - Good guesses for this weekโ€™s quiz. Take a look again at numbers 1 & 3 though. Iโ€™ll give you a clue for number 3... you donโ€™t HAVE to completely cook this meat. You can leave it a little bit pink (raw) in the middle... also, itโ€™s my favourite meat.

Marwa - These r the answers to this weeks quiz:
1) armadillo
2) muggle
3) chicken ๐Ÿ— rump
4) Florence nightingale

Ruqayyah - I haven't seen the blog๐Ÿ–ฅ in a while and have just realised it turned into a documentary ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’โ€โ™€๏ธon rayhans hair. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Samik - Rayhan you can write my code which is #9GRP92YJL for the easier way and Iโ€™ll accept ur request

Samik - It has 6/100 people just to let you know and it has a lighting badge

Samik - Just join my clan called Eastclub (EG) with the brackets then Iโ€™ll send freind request so we can play together and btw Iโ€™m like the best player ever

Rayhan - Thanks Mahiyah n there are people might not miss me but want to see me I know for definite

Rayhan - N Samik I downloaded brawl stars but Iโ€™m going to play 6 days after eid coz Iโ€™m fasting on those days u no Iโ€™m focusing on the deen ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„

Rayhan - K Samik but I need ur code

Marwa - Mahiyah i dont think ๐Ÿค” its only gona b 5-6 children in each class i think its gona b at least 15. Also rayhan we hear the adhan for maghrib at usually at 8:40 - 8:50 and today i just checked and today its gona b at 8:50 today and rayhan wat is broder u could hav at least said brother or bro. Mahiyah yes there is a law between us about dabbing didnt we talk about it as soon as i said i dont like the dab?????? ๐Ÿ˜ก And samik plz dont start talking about ur hair coz soon all we r goin to b talking about on this blog is our hair โ€œ oh hello ๐Ÿ‘‹ my hair is long!โ€
โ€œaw my mum cut my hair yesterday.โ€ NO!

Anthony - Marwa, I have done a lot of research and the governemnt haven't mentioned anything at all about SATs in Y7. I think that it's really important at the moment that what we're telling people is true. Your sister is pulling a prank on you ๐Ÿ˜‚ The best place for children to get their accurate news from is Newsround.

Mahiyah - I was checking our Accelerated Reader for myself, and used Arisha's account. Yes, The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien is the book that I quizzed on. I got 4/20 correct... in my defence I last read that book about 9 years ago.

Rayhan - You can send it in by taking a photo of it on your mum or dad's phone, and then sending it on WhatsApp to the school's number.

P.S. I miss you Rayhan, even if everyone else is pretending that they don't.

Haani - I havenโ€™t written on the blog in ages so i just went to see what everyone was talking about. It turns out it was RAYHANS HAIR ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Samik - Me and Arafat already play so maybe u can play with us is well๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿฟ

Samik - Rayhan download a game called brawl stars so we can play together ๐Ÿ“ฒ

Samik - Rayhan same my mum cut it short cuz the shops are closed

Waqeea - Rayhan the answer to question:
People r not missing u because all u do is speak about your hair.O thought u would have figured that out by now.

Waqeea - Who is going school?

Rayhan - Marwa u no in east London mosque the Adhan for salatul-asr is at 8:48 n me n my broder n sisters always just look outside and scream

Mahiyah - Sorry Marwa I didn't realize there was a law about preferring dabbing to going back to school ( I don't think we're going to do SAT's in Secondary though). And for once I kind of agree with you Rayhan about riding bikes, but we're going to have to do some learning as well even though I know you probably don't want to. Like I said before, I don't really care, so long as we can go back to school. My mum says it'll be different, wellbeing lessons with a different teacher and 4 or 5 children in each class, which makes sense, but I think it's better than nothing.

Marwa - Did u know that we might do sats in secondary. (to be honest i dont really know if this is true but my sister keeps on saying it so i assume it is true.) Also its annoying that u flick ur hair out of ur face coz u would always brag about how long it is n u even know that my one is a lot longer. Also my sister (wasilah) says change ur birthday coz ur a copy cat. Farhan i agree with u this blog is soon gona turn into a documentary about rayhans hair ๐Ÿ˜…. Also yes i agree with u rayhan if we go back to school i want to ride a bike and run around. Also the only ppl who miss u r ur โ€œfriendsโ€. And yes Mahiyah we had ppl clapping outside our house from their balcony to support the NHS. It would happen at 8:00 right before iftar. We dont do it anymore and it wasnt only on thursdays it was everyday. And also i think that we r going back 2 school coz like mahiyah said we r going to secondary. MAHIYAH HOW COULD U SAY THAT U WOULD RATHER BE DABBED IN FRONT OF THEN STAY AT HOME. I LUV MY HOME (But also school.) MAHIYAH U JUST BROKE THE LAW BETWEEN. Anyway im cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž with it and its fine i forgive u and i might kinda agree with u.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคญ

Anthony - Sorry year 6, I've put the wrong link on for Thursday's activity for First News. This is the correct link if you want to copy and paste it.


Rayhan - Y is no one misin me n y is it anoying if I move my hair. My opinion I think thereโ€™s no reason to go to school if weโ€™re not doin sats unless we go their to do fun stuff such as ride a bike run around anyone agree?

Waqeea - Anthony it is not sad news that Rayhan cut his hair I mean all he would do in English was brag about how long his hair Is and it was getting really annoying.
Oh and Rayhan I did not miss u for the exact same reason as marwa.Btw hello everybody.

Rayhan - Anthony I did the Anglo-Saxon homework but I dnt know how 2 send it and I put so much effort into it and lots of writing

Khadija - Nope none of us miss u rayhan sorry

Farhan H - The blog just became a place where people talk about rayhan's hair.

Mahiyah - Waqeea, I don't know why Year 1 and Reception are allowed to go back but I think we're allowed to because we're going to Secondary in September. The reasons don't bother me, I just want to go back to school!๐Ÿ˜ซ I agree with Marwa, Rayhan. If we go back to school all you'll do is dab in front of us, but now I've thought about it, I'd rather you dabbed everyday than us being stuck at home.๐Ÿ˜„ I wanted to go on my bike too but the tyres are flat and for some reason the local bike pump has been taken away, so I've either got to ride a bike with no air or wait until we can buy our own pump.๐Ÿ˜ช๐Ÿ˜ŸThe first thing I said is impossible and it's probably going to be a while before we can buy a pump. At least I've got space outside my house.Anthony, what were you saying about a Hobbit quiz? Is it anything to do with the book I read a while ago called 'The Hobbit', by J.R.R Tolkien? Also, does anyone else have people who start fireworks outside their house and start screaming to support the NHS every Thursday evening? I do and it's driving me crazy, I can never sleep on Thursdays!๐Ÿงจโœจ๐ŸŽ‡๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš•๏ธ

Rayhan - Anthony I did my Anglo-Saxons homework but I donโ€™t know how to send it

Marwa - Rayhan to be honest i dont miss u coz u would never stop โœ‹dabbing. But i am missing all my friends ๐Ÿ˜Š. And yes quarantine was boring but ever since ramadan started and ive been fasting , doing tarawee and watching my favourite Turkish drama Ertugrul (which has a lot if history behind it) so I'm not that bored all i miss is generally going outside and playing โšฝ๏ธ. Even sometimes i play with my cousin on pixel gun. (If u play my username is TAG.) Also plz rayhan dont grow ur hair back i want to see u with short hair.

Anthony - Rayhan - That's sad news about your hair! I'm glad though that you're enjoying yourself and that the fasting is going well.

Arisha - Aqueddus told me that there was a mystery Hobbit quiz on your accelerated reader. I have to apologise to you; I needed to use one of the children's account to check something. Well done to you for saying something - that was such a good idea. Dojo points for you! Only Aqueddus can see that WhatsApp messages, so if you want to ask me anything else, write on the blog and I'll get back to you. P.S. Sorry that I got such a bad score on the Hobbit!

Rayhan - What did the traffic light say to the car.....donโ€™t look Iโ€™m changing ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Rayhan - Iโ€™m sorry but how r u guys finding it boring you thereโ€™s no distraction on going out and you can pray tarawee together in my house we made our how into a mosque see itโ€™s not even boring the only thing I want to do is run around n go on a bike

Rayhan - Yes Mahiyah Iโ€™m gna gro my hair again up to my shoulders did any of u guys miss me. NGL my hair kinda looks pretty bad and itโ€™s really short๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

Rayhan - Yes Mahiyah Iโ€™m gna gro my hair again up to my shoulders did any of you guys miss me ?

Mahiyah - So you finally got you're hair cut Rayhan! I thought you would never be able to see where you were going! I guess it will grow long again though and you'll keep annoying everyone by waving it out of your face!๐Ÿคฃ

Waqeea - Last weeks quiz:
2)Rubik's cube

Waqeea - Hello everyone I hope u r all ok.
And I have a ?
How come that only our class, year 1 and Reception have to go back to school and no other years. Does anyone know.๐Ÿค”

Marwa - These r the answers to this weeks quiz

2) the knee it isnt the biggest but also the most complicated
3) i dont know what this is but i think ๐Ÿค” it is the discus throw
4) 34 legs ๐Ÿฆต ๐Ÿฆต๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐ŸŽ“
I also have a joke 4 everyone from Wasilah:
What did area say to perimeter while arguing?
Iโ€™m trying to talk to you but it just feels like youโ€™re going around my problem ๐Ÿ˜…
Also here is a letter I sent to algebra:
Dear algebra,
Stop trying to make us find your X, she isnโ€™t coming back and donโ€™t ask Y. ๐Ÿคฃ
Here is another 1
Are monsters good at maths?
Not unless u COUNT DRACULA ๐Ÿง›โ€โ™‚๏ธ. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Anthony - Bakerloo Class, your jokes are helping to keep me entertained! Keep them coming!

Wow, Zain! Great to hear from you!

Rayhan - Why didnโ€™t the skeleton cross the road... coz it has no guts!!๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Samik - Yo!! Zain how's life?

Samik - 1: steel
2: Rubikโ€™s cube
4:gothem ๐ŸŒƒ

Rayhan - Hello everyone is it just me or is this quarantine going great fasting is very easy praying is very easy btw my dad cut my hair so short coz the shops won't open

Zain - Hi guys it me ZAIN I miss everyone especially my friends Stay Safe Stay Home (CORONA VIRUS)๐Ÿฆ ๐Ÿฆ ๐Ÿฆ 

Arisha - Here is some jokes, Why do we tell actors to "break a leg?" Because every play has a cast.

Can I tell you a vegan joke? I promise it won't be cheesy .

How do you make a tissue dance? You put a little boogie in it.

Arisha - To Anthony the homework you set us for Friday the 8th ( the puzzle ) is really confusing for me but I will try my hardest to complete it .

Marwa - Where is waqeea and everybody else?

Tahiyah - QUIZ ANSWER:
1) Copper
2) rubik's cube
3) Mandela
4) Gotham city

Ruqayyah - Anthony, do we have the book sky circus at school ? I really want to read it!

Anthony - Anzar - Sorry that the link was wrong. I've double checked everything for next week.

Tahiyah - I love the jokes, but did you steal the Scold joke from my class newsletter?

Marwa - I don't think he's quite ready for HP, but thanks for the YouTube suggestion :-D (There's a Harry Potter question in the next class newsletter)

Farhan H - Oh wow! It sounds like you're trying to break some kind of record.

Tahiyah - hello i'm really board i will like to know if any of you been fasting? If did many did you keep and how many did you break?

Farhan H - Staying home is not that bad... I mean... U can sleep till 2 pm ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Mahiyah - I don't know if I was reading stories when I was one Anthony, maybe I was, I'm not sure. :-D My mum's hidden my books and will only give me a new book every five days, which means I can only read about sixty pages a day, and I'm used to reading about a hundred! :( I suppose my books will last longer that way though. My baby sister loves a book called 'Chuffa Chuffa Choo Choo', it's about a train has Oliver read it?

Tahiyah - Hello everyone im so bored so do have any suggestion what i can do?

Marwa - To be honest I dont have many tips for the class but I think ๐Ÿค” it has to do with when I used to go to karate ๐Ÿฅ‹ and did 20 pushups and sit ups so Iโ€™m pretty much used to it ๐Ÿ˜€. Also Wasilah suggests Harry Potter and the philosophers stone to Oliver and also she say hi ๐Ÿ‘‹ to everyone. But I think ๐Ÿค” thatโ€™s ridiculous and she knows that. I suggest on YouTube search Steve and Maggie because my brother has learnt a lot from it such as counting recognising letters and my sister thinks that he can read Harry Potter.

Anzar - I couldn't get into spanish games places in a town.

Tahiyah - Today at the bank,
An old lady
Asked me to check
Her balance.

So I pushed her over.

Tahiyah - JOKE TIME:

Anthony - Ariyan and Fardeen - I saw your quiz answers on WhatsApp today. Check your answer for the Statue of Liberty question. Clue: Parts of the statue have turned green. (It's linked to what metal it's made from.)

Marwa - FANTASTIC to read that you're staying active! That is a really impressive number for each. Do you have any tips for the rest of the class?

Mahiyah - Haha, no he can't read because he is only one. (Although I wouldn't be surprised if you were reading stories when you were one! ๐Ÿ˜‚)

Arisha - I saw your message on WhatsApp about your maths. Well done for finding such a great solution - I hope that you enjoyed the game instead. It's really helpful feedback too for when I am writing next week's timetable.

Does anyone have any suggestions for books that I can read to Oliver? At the moment, he really likes: Dear Zoo, The Gruffalo, We're Going on a Bear Hunt, The Tiger Who Came to Tea and The Hungry Caterpillar.

Mahiyah - Wow Marwa, how did you do that much exercise when you're fasting??!! You're right, my parents won't let me sleep until Zuhr, but I still wake up really late ( about 12:00), especially on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays because I have an Arabic class on Zoom on those days from 11:30-12:00. Like your jokes. ( I forgot to open the blog on Chrome and now I can't send Emojis and I can't be bothered to type this all out again).

Khadija - Anthony-itโ€™s not that hard to be honest,itโ€™s because of dehydration and Iโ€™ve had biriyani and samosas and stuff like that to break my fast along with some fruit!

Mahiyah - Hahaha Anthony, that's really funny, what a coincidence, but can Oliver even read yet? Thanks for the yoga idea. My mum gave me some new books today, the H.I.V.E series (Higher Institution of Villainous Education) , by Mark Walden. Have you heard of them?

Marwa - Anthony I hope its ok but I get a lot of the answers to the quiz from my sister ๐Ÿ˜.

Marwa - Hi everyone ๐Ÿ‘‹
These are the answers for this weeks quiz:
1) copper
2) rubiks cube (the spelling may not be right)
3) Nelson Mandela
4) Gothem city
Also for todays home work i can do 30 push ups, 50 situps and 110 star jumps these may not be as accurate because Iโ€™m fasting which is really difficult ๐Ÿ˜”. I have a tip for people who are fasting its to try and sleep ๐Ÿ˜ด as much as you can in the morning like until zuhor starts and also try not to go in the kitchen. (The first tip may not be allowed by your parents but its what me and my older sister do especially my sister because she wakes up for zuhor then goes back to sleep ๐Ÿ˜ด ) Also Iโ€™ve got a few jokes for everyone
What happened in the race between the tomato ๐Ÿ… and the lettuce ๐Ÿฅฌ?
The lettuce was aHEAD and the tomato was trying to KETCHUP (catch up)๐Ÿ˜…
I dont trust people people with graph paper because theyโ€™re always plotting something.๐Ÿคฃ

Anthony - Tahiyah - Two great jokes. The second one is the best maths joke Iโ€™ve ever heard. (Iโ€™m going to steal it and use it in the future!)

Liza - Great to hear that youโ€™re all keeping busy. Lots of the children in the class have been baking too.

If, like Mahiyah, you are fasting, you could always stay active this week by trying some yoga.


(You canโ€™t click on the link, but you can copy and paste it.) ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Tahiyah - JOKE TIME:
I keep seeing the numbers 1,3,5 and 7 in my dreams.
Itโ€™s very odd.

Liza - Hello year 6, hello Anthony!

It's so nice to hear from you all, and it's nice to hear all the things you are doing to keep yourselves busy.
There is a lot on here about football, which i am going to stay away from! ๐Ÿ˜
Me, Ameera and Mikail have been keeping ourselves busy at home with some baking, some art, all the work set on the newsletters and definitely some just dance!! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ
Hope Ramadan is going well for you all and your eating lots of yummy and healthy food. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Take care, stay safe!

Liza ๐Ÿ˜Š

Tahiyah - opps these are not in Africa Kyrgyzstan. and Cyprus

Tahiyah - i decided to give a joke so here it goes:
Why did the man put the cake in his freezer?
A: He was asked to ice it.
Hah get it๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Anthony -

Aqueddus - In my team, I can count 4 Premier League winners. How many are there in yours? (Fully aware this comment isn't going to age well.)

Tahiyah - Great to see that you've done the quiz. Fantastic answers. Two of yout answers are in Africa, but two are not in Africa. Do you know which ones?

Mahiyah - I wonder if Oliver has been reading about your sister on the blog because today he got really obsessed with a plastic yoghurt pot! He has been carrying it everywhere!

Khadija - Ah no, sorry to hear that you're finding it hard. What have you been eating to break your fast?

Tahiyah - QUIZ:
1) Egypt, Cyprus, Chad, Kyrgyzstan. (GAVE EXTRA TWO)
3) Qatar
4) French

Khadija - Hi everyone, has anyone else been fasting because I am, I've fainted almost everyday and sometimes even twice a day I think itโ€™s because of dehydration since Iโ€™m not drinking water for an entire day.๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Mahiyah - Thanks Anthony, the emojis work now ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. And yes, I think my sister likes the sound of the bottles being squashed, because whenever one gets squashed she gets really excited. (She really likes vaseline pots as well). Glad you understood my baby language ๐Ÿ‘ถ Marwa, and by the way, she's not that strong because we have to loosen the lid of the bottle before she can squeeze any air out of it. I didn't do the exercise homework today either because I'm fasting and I'll probably feel ill after if I do ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคข. I'm having lasagne for Iftar today๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ, what are you going to have? ๐Ÿฅ˜ ( Now I can do emojis I'm doing loads to make up for when I couldn't. Think I've done a bit too many though๐Ÿคญ ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜„.)

Aqueddus - My team of the season: The whole Liverpool team ๐Ÿคš๐Ÿฝ๐ŸŽค

Anthony - Anthony's Premier League XI (4-3-3)

GK - Allison
LB Robertson
CB - Van Dijk
CB - Evans
RB - Trent AA
LM - Maddison
CM - Ndidi
RM - De Bruyne
LF - Mane
CF - Vardy
RF - Salah

I wonder if Arafat will post his team of the season?

Anthony - Hello everyone

Paul - Glad to see Ndidi in the team - I don't think everyone realises how fantastic he has been this season.

Ruqayyah - That is fantastic to hear! I'm going to set the same challenge each week, and see if you can improve. Do you want my top tip? Give yourself a few minutes break in between each different activity until your heart slows back down, then the next activity will be easier.

Samik & Omar - I know exactly what you mean about the fresh air. On the warm days, I love having the windows open nice and wide!

Samik - Those are great attackers - I wouldn't want to be a defender playing against them. I'm going to post my team again because I'm not sure that everyone can see my picture.

Mahiyah - Hahaha! I'm so glad you've told me about that. Do you think that your sister enjoys the noise of scrunching the bottle? On my computer if I right click a list comes up, the very top of the list is Emojis. ๐Ÿ‘ (I'm using Google Chrome)

Fardeen - Fantastic that you have found the blog! What have you been up to? It would be lovely if Ariyan wrote on the blog too.

Marwa - I'll find a way of sharing a photo of my cooking with you. I can't promise that it's AS good as your samosas and dumplings though.

Marwa - Mahiyah I dont think you can do โ€œemoji thingiesโ€ on computers (unfortunately for you๐Ÿ™) and also the explanation on baby language was very confusing but in the end I think I got it. Also Iโ€™m just wondering how strong your sister is that she can scrunch up plastic bottles. I also want to know how many push ups you can do, sit ups and star jumps since its todayโ€™s homework, I havenโ€™t done it.๐Ÿ˜

Ruqayyah - Hello everyone, I hope you are all well!!!
Today I did 23 star jumps,12 press ups and 10 sit ups . How many did you do?

Paul - Hi Year 6, I hope you are all well. I have enjoyed reading your comments, and Yaseen and Samik's teams of the season (well done for picking Son :-) I think he deserves goal of the season anyway).
Here is mine, to counter all the Leicester bias in Anthony's team!!
Allison (Liverpool)
TAA (Liverpool) VVD (Liverpool) Egan (Sheffield Utd) Chilwell (Leicester)
Fernandes (Man Utd) Ndidi (Leicester) De Bruyne (Man City)
Traore (Wolves) Ings (Southampton) Mane (Liverpool)

Samik - Answer to the questions
1:Egypt and Chad
4: french

Samik - I really need some fresh air ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Samik - My PL team of the season
Defence: Robertson, van dijk, Laporte and Arnold
Midfield:de bruyne, Ruben neves and Adama traorรฉ
Attack: Vardy, Mane and Son
Honourable mentions: Raul Jimenez, Abraham, Aubameyang (not sure how to spell his name) , Mahrez and Salah

Mahiyah - Anthony you asked me yesterday if my baby sister has any weird obsessions, and I forgot to say that she really likes plastic bottles. She'll scrunch a bottle up and start hitting us on the head with it.

Fardeen Ali Hoque - Hi everyone how are you guy's doing?

Mahiyah - Can somebody tell me how to do those emoji thingies please? I've pressed practically everything on the computer and I still haven't figured it out. Can you even send emojis on a computer? Hope my baby language explanation was enough Marwa.

Mahiyah - Hi Marwa, I'm sorry, I don't know much baby language but when my sister types on here I'm guessing that she's saying "hello Mahiyah's friends, nice to meet you, can you teach me this weird English language you keep speaking in?" :) Also everyone in my family has been making dumplings as well, but I made tuna kebabs today.

Marwa - Yes i would love to see some photos of your food ๐Ÿฅ˜ Anthony and the actual answer to question 2 is... 13 i only did as decimals as a joke. Iโ€™ve also been wondering how else i can read cogheart because i dont have a kindle and its been killing me that i dont know how it ends ๐Ÿ˜ญ and i wont read moonlocket until i find out how it ends. Also Mahiyah can you teach us some of this baby ๐Ÿ‘ถ language you keep talking about. Hope youโ€™re all doing well.๐Ÿ˜

Marwa - Yes i would love to see some photos of your food ๐Ÿฅ˜ Anthony and the actual answer to question 2 is... 13 i only did as decimals as a joke. Iโ€™ve also been wondering how else i can read cogheart because i dont have a kindle and its been killing me that i dont know how it ends ๐Ÿ˜ญ and i wont read moonlocket until i find out how it ends.

Mahiyah - Hi everyone! I'm writing this with my baby sister on my lap and it's literally impossible! She's grabbing everything and she keeps trying to type on the keyboard. I've had to delete her baby language so many times! Hope you're all well.

Anthony - Hey everyone,

This is my Premier League XI for this season. Let me know what you think, and also post your team.


Anthony - Hello Farhan H and Tahiyah ๐Ÿคฉ

Mahiyah - Yes, theyโ€™re all available for 98p on the Kindle (at the moment,) even his latest book! Do you remember he was telling us a little bit about it when he came to our class?

Marwa - Itโ€™s SO lovely that you are helping your mum around the house. The samosas and dumplings that you told me about sounded very tasty! I have been doing some cooking too. Would you like to see some photos? Have another go at question two. I should have said that itโ€™s only whole numbers that count ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

Haani - Wow! That sounds amazing. Make sure that you send us a photo of the book that you made together, and any baking that you do too!

Omar - I know exactly what you mean! Iโ€™m glad that youโ€™re staying safe though, and great that you found the blog. Can you tell everyone one thing that youโ€™ve been up to?

Farhan h - Hello..

Tahiyah - Hi

Haani - Hi everyone! Iโ€™ve been so bored lately so my mumโ€™s been teaching me how to cook! A few things i have made are chickpeas, pilau and chicken and mushroom pie! I have also been baking different flavoured cakes like chocolate and vanilla. The best thing about the vanilla cake was that we ate it with nutella, whipped cream and strawberries. (Hope youโ€™re all well)

Mahiyah - Thanks Anthony, I've got a kindle so I'll try and read Cogheart on it. Are all the other books in the Cogheart series available on the kindle for 98p as well?

Omar - I've been in the house too long I need fresh air๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Marwa - Hi Anthony, the jobs Iโ€™ve been doing around the house include helping my mum make food for Iftar and helping my sister with her homework otherwise Iโ€™ve pretty much been playing with my younger brother and playing on my ipad. Also the answers to the questions this week are
1) Egypt and Chad
2) 49 ( includes decimals)
3) Qatar

Yaseen - My prediction for the team of the season

ST: Aguero
CM:De bruyne
RB:Alex Ander-Arnold
CB:Van dijk

Anthony - Yaseen, I really enjoyed seeing your team of the season! I wonder who else will write their team of the season on our blog...

Anthony - Good morning everyone and well done for writing on the blog.

Tahiyah - There is a new newsletter each Monday. This weekโ€™s one isnโ€™t on the website just yet, but will be there soon. It has been sent on WhatsApp already though, so ask your parents if you can see it.

Marwa - Great to see that youโ€™ve found the blog ๐Ÿ‘ Iโ€™ve really enjoyed seeing your homework on the school WhatsApp. Can you tell us all one thing youโ€™ve been doing Marwa, maybe a book youโ€™ve been reading? Or a job youโ€™ve been doing round the house? Please tell your brother that I say hello ๐Ÿ˜€

Mahiyah - Yes, you can read any of the Cogheart series books. I have started calling all of the children in Bakerloo Class; yesterday I spoke to Ariana who was telling me that they are amazing! If you have a kindle (or the kindle app on a phone / tablet) you can buy Cogheart for 98p at the moment on amazon.

Arafat - Great that you have written on the blog ๐Ÿ˜Ž When I spoke to Samik yesterday, I set him the challenge of choosing his best 11 premier league players for this season and writing them on the blog. Maybe you can join in too?

Arafat - Hi everyone hope everybody is doing well

Mahiyah - Hi Anthony, I've done the new quiz questions for this week:
1) Egypt and Chad.
2) 13.
3) Qatar.
4) French.
Also, am I allowed to finish reading Cogheart now? It's really bugging me that I don't know how it ends (I'll have to find a way to read it though because I left my borrowed Cogheart book at school). My Moonlocket book is just sitting on my shelf waiting as well. Can I read that too please?

Marwa - HELLO EVERYONE I didn't know how to get on the blog so Iโ€™m a bit late.

Tahiyah - Anthony what work shall we do today

Anthony - A question for everyone to think about this week...

What is the food that youโ€™re missing most at the moment? Mine is Nandoโ€™s! Iโ€™m going to try and make some at home this week ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿณ

Anthony - Waqeea, you are very close. Itโ€™s Professor Silverfish! (Do you remember all of the references to silver?)

Hello Anzar. Great to hear from you, I hope you and your family are all doing okay ๐Ÿ‘ I REALLY enjoyed seeing your literacy homework on WhatsApp this week - canโ€™t wait to see more.


Mahiyah - Ramadan Mubarak everyone! I was really busy today, making calendars and other preparations for Ramadan. I made a cake as well (my first ever). It tasted ok but it didn't quite work. I fasted today and so did everyone else (except my baby sister of course). Sorry I didn't do the homework Anthony, but I only found out where the class newsletter was today. I'll try and do some tomorrow. And Waqeea, the professor's name is Professor Silverfish, not goldfish.

Anzar - Hello Anthony

Waqeea - In Cogheart is the professor's name professor goldfish ?

Anthony - Hi Waqeea,

Iโ€™m glad that you put so much effort into it. I have been really impressed by your homework, and even showed your poem to my family. In our house, things keep getting hidden in the washing machine: cups of milk, toys and even bits of toast!

Stay safe, keep up the amazing home learning (and hide those colouring pens!)


Waqeea - Yes in fancy clothes and gladly I didn't get in trouble....My baby sister did ๐Ÿ˜‚. And I am glad to know that all of u r ok.OMG FOR ENGLISH THE ACROSTIC POEM TOOK ME LIKE 1 HOUR.Im happy the final one was good.

Anthony - I'm delighted that you have enjoyed the next books in the series Arisha! I haven't read Skycircus, so I'm excited to hear about it.

Do you remember Peter Bunzl told us about the fourth book in the series? It's called Shadowsea and is out now. (It's also on special offer on the Kindle for 98p!)

Arisha - I'm so bored but something that's helping with my boredom is the cogheart series. I've read moonlocket and skycircus.Both are extremely good yet malice beats all the books I've ever read.I've also been baking!

Aqueddus - Hello children!
Right now I am on my computer working, and weirdly I am missing the noise you would make when going up to class after break! I am sure once we are back I will be telling you guys to be quiet in the corridoors again.
Me, Sara and Hana have been keeping busy. Both of them can now confidently ride a bike - whoop whoop!

I wonder how many hours of sleep Anthony is getting whilst looking after baby Oli?

Anthony - Hi Tahiyah,

Thatโ€™s helpful to know. Very soon I am going to give you a survey about what is good about the home learning and what has been a bit tricky - then I hope Iโ€™ll be able to think of even better activities.

Top tip: Remember to use normal letters like you would at school - not all capital letter.


Iโ€™m glad that youโ€™ve written on here and that you have found some things to do. Iโ€™m not surprised to hear that the two of you are getting bored. Did you see at the bottom of the Bakerloo newsletter I made a link to First News? The same as with Tahiyah, when I make the survey you can write that you need more things to read and we will sort that out. Whilst youโ€™re waiting, have a look on the Y4 newsletter. I know that a Simon made a link to some free accelerated reader books. Let me know what you think.


Samik - Hello everyone I'm really bored so all i have been doing is practicing basketball and reading my books.I hope you guys are doing good while stuck at home and I'm missing everyone including Anthony

Sajida - Hello I finished my homework and now I'm on my tablet all day

Khadija - Iโ€™m literally so bored Iโ€™ve been FaceTiming sajida everyday๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Mahiyah - I've run out of things to do so I've started learning to crochet. I'm terrible at it. Sewing is a lot easier. The only good thing I've managed to make is a simple chain, and that's beginner's stuff! If anyone's got any ideas about what to do when you're bored please share them!

Mahiyah - Hi everyone, I'm very bored at home, so it's a nice change being able to talk to you all. My baby sister hasn't been outside in so long she's starting to get really annoyed. Screams practically all day. We try to get her to crawl but she's a big scaredy-cat. The weirdest thing I've done so far is making up silly songs about being bored ( I couldn't think of anything else to do!). ghvbnbhnbvxxz. Oops! Sorry, my baby sister seems to like typing baby language! Really wish I didn't miss the last days of school. Missing you all lots.


Anthony - Waqeea, what clothes did you dress her up in? Fancy clothes?

Tahiyah, thatโ€™s exciting that he is walking. Does he bang the pots and pans together as well? Babies love to make noise!

What has everyone else been doing?

tahiyah - Hi everyone,
I'M really board so i decided to teach my brother how to walk but know when someone leaves the door in the living room he goes in the kitchen and cooks with he pans and pots.

Waqeea Akther - I was very board so I dressed my away sister up,I took a very long time so it would look perfect.I left her alone for 2 minutes when i came back she had scribbled all over her dress.So I had to change her back into her pyjamas.

Anthony - Hello year 6,

I miss all of you so much, and really want to hear how you all are. I'm going to be writing a message on our Stay Home blog each day, and I'm looking forward to reading your messages back to me. (Please reply to me!)

Some of the messages might be fairly formal (I am your teacher after all,) but others might be a bit jokey. I thought we'd start of with a relaxed question...

We're obviously all getting a little bit bored at home sometimes. What's the silliest / strangest / most pointless thing that you've done so far?

This is mine. I needed a haircut, but also needed to stay at home, so I bought some clippers. My wife said that she would cut my hair for me, but when the clippers arrived she was busy eating her breakfast. Now I was a bit bored at the time and also excited to receive a delivery.... so I decided to just cut my hair myself. Surprisingly, it came out pretty okay!

P.S. I do not recommend that anyone tries to cut their own hair - I don't want to upset your families :-D
