Your Final Well-Being Wednesday: Mr.Mutch vs Mr.Reid – The Grand Final!

For the final time this year… 

Mr.Mutch and Mr.Reid are ready to go sign off in style, in their biggest challenge yet…

or is it challenges. They even got T-shirts made!

We’ve got the whole show team involved (in front and behind the camera) as we do our own ‘Minute to Win it’ Gameshow. 

There is no leader board for this week but you can watch the games and adapt them to suit the materials in your home. Come together and enjoy lots of endless laughter, just like we did.

We can’t thank you enough for the great response each episode. 

We set out to have a bit of fun and share a community feeling together. Focusing on the mental well being, to have a routine of seeing us each week as we present the next challenge and also viewing the entries of all the other families who took part, the same as you. Plus the physical well being of us all, with the activities we would set.  We hope that during some down time throughout Home Learning this has given a smile and made you laugh.

Enjoy the Final Episode of ‘Mr.Mutch vs Mr.Reid’ below, 

Have a G.R.E.A.T Summer and we will see you after the break! 




Felices Vacaciones – Happy Holidays


Boys and Girls,

Summer holidays are a few days around the corner and the first thing I want to say is congratulations. Congratulations “Felicitaciones” on your hard work, your patience and your positivism to go through all this, you are amazing!

To finish this term and this school year,  I thought we could do something nice and special, by using a few materials and one word or a phrase you have learnt in Spanish during this time; the one that it was stuck in your head the most, the one that sounded funny or the one that reminded you of something. Once you have it, we will do a colour print so you can hung it somewhere and remember for ever!

I chose to do a word that it might be new for you, it is one of my favourites “Vacaciones” which means “Holidays” more similar to “Vacacions”.



-Any markers that you have that are not permanent.

-White paper, hopefully a bit thicker than normal.

-Zipper bag

-Water to spray

-A black marker. permanent if possible.

Step 1

Write the word you chose, use any handwriting you want.

Step 2

Colour the bag with the markers, if you put it on top of your word you will see what parts you want covered.

Step 3

Spray water on it, you can use a brush or even your fingers to spray water in it.

Step 4

Turn it around and let the ink touch the paper, with your fingers move the ink around. Very carefully remove the bag.

Step 5

Let it dry. Once it is dried, stick it to your wall, make a card out of it or put it on a frame. Well done!


Have a wonderful summer holidays, enjoy them as much as you can and make lovely memories with your beloved ones. Well done to you all!

Methlick End of Year Reflection Colour
(PDF link)

This week we won’t be having a Numeracy/Literacy and HWB grid.  Instead, as the school year draws to a close, take some time to reflect upon all that you have experienced over the course of the year.  We would love to hear about the skills you’ve gained, things you’ve felt proud of and memories you’ve shared. Fill in the boxes and send it to your teacher over on Seesaw. (The PDF Links are much more printer friendly)

Here’s a black and white version if you don’t have a colour printer:

Feel-Good Friday – Sculpture

This Friday we will be once again visiting the National Galleries of Scotland in Edinburgh for our inspiration.

One of my favourite sculptures in the Gallery of Modern Art is ‘Vulcan’.  He is an enormous figure constructed from steel, measuring 730 cm in height.  He was created by the  Scottish artist, Eduardo Paolozzi

T-Shirt Tote Bag – Reusing Science Activity


Boys and Girls,

Summer is here and summer holidays just around the corner, isn’t it great? You might be doing more things than before since we are allowed to go out more and meet more people which is fantastic. You might be going for a picnic around your local area or travel a bit further, for a walk on the beach, to visit some relatives, shopping and others.

Our activity for today will be making a tote bag (like on the photo above) that will be very useful for all the activities mentioned before. To make this we will reuse a T-shirt that is not longer being used at home, it can be yours or from anybody at home as long as they don’t need it anymore.

Let’s talk a bit about what it means to reuse.


What does it mean reuse? Reuse is the practice of using something again. Whether for its original purpose or to fulfill a different function. 

When you choose to reuse, you are making a conscious choice to make your life greener and more earth-friendly.

Reusing items helps save money, energy, and resources since it helps keep waste out of landfills and slows down the need for manufacturing new materials. So whenever you have the opportunity to reuse something, don’t think it twice.

Let’s Reuse!

Look at the following Sway to see everything you need and the steps to do you amazing reused T-shirt tote bag.

Go to this Sway

Remember to send a photo to your teacher to see your reused T-shirt tote bag.
