Welcome to Mr Romano's daily update page. Here I will let you know how I am doing. Highlight any good work that I have seen and also help with anything that all the class were struggling with. You might hear audio clips, see videos or pictures. Please if you are not sure about any of the lessons do send me an email. One last thing, I will be posting updates about the short stories of Mr Romano, watch this space! Stay safe and well. Thank you all!

Update No.7

Morning 4R! How are you all doing? A shorter update today. Wow I am seeing some amazing Trojan horses that you have created. School is very empty and strange without all of you here with me. Some of you may have seen that on Mr Tang's YouTube page (check it out if you have not already) there are some bedtimes stories that teachers have been recording. They are all excellent and amazing. Well today's (Wednesday 1st April) I have done the bedtime story. Have a watch and give me some feedback.


All of you are doing amazing and I am so proud of each and everyone of you. Keep going and keep sending me something positive from your day!

Update No.6

Good Morning all! I am sorry for the lack of updates but I thought I would do one big one today. Starting off with well done for getting through your first week of distance learning. I can see some of you are working really hard and taking time with your work which is great to see. I have seen some fantastic recount pieces of writing, amazing Trojan horses and really good decimal and fraction work.


On the topic of work, it is vitally important that you are sending me your work everyday. As a class less and less children are sending me work. This is important as we will not get this time back. If there are any issues please do let me know and I will help the best I can.


Lots of you have been sending me pictures of food that you either cooked or baked. This has made me very jealous and hungry. So I thought I would do the same. My flatmate and I have been trying to cook for each other, which for me is great as my flatmate is a great cook. I am just starting my journey of cooking and practicing with different recipes. One of my favourite meals to cook is curry and this is what you will see below.


Some of you may have noticed that I have not done any chapters of Nightmare! and I will be honest I am having writers block and everything I seem to write does not seem to be good enough. So I am going back through the chapters that I have done and I am editing them. 


This week I am working in school with the key worker children in the morning, so you may not hear from me till the afternoon. It is really strange not having all of you here with me. Have a good day and keep sending me stuff that is your positive moment of the day.

Update No.5

A bit of a late update today. The weather this week has been amazing and lots of you have been getting out to enjoy it, which is great to see. The work that you have been sending me as well has been great and I can see that some of you have been spending a lot of time and hard work on it. 

I am currently writing chapter 6 of Nightmare! Hopefully that will be out tomorrow watch this space. I am going to put the other stories on the update page for you to read with family members if you would like to. If you find any edits that I need to do, let me know!

I am currently working on my computer set up to hopefully do some videos, this will take me time so I will let you know when it is ready.

I was watching a video this morning and it was all about trying to find the positives in this strange time. So I am asking each of you to send me a positive thing about your day!

Have a great day!

Update No.4


Good Morning all! What a lovely day it was yesterday and I hope you are using your time to enjoy it wisely. Some of you have sent me photos of you and brothers/sisters having water fights yesterday. Thank you for all the work that is coming in and I can see that you are trying your best and hardest.

Just a few things I am noticing though especially with English. Please check your work! I saw a lot of work yesterday that were missing capital letters and full stops. You all know what this means if I see work done and you have not checked through crying.


I did forget to mention yesterday that alongside playing some Animal crossing in the evenings (manged to get my first house, send me a guess to what you think the colour is?) I have also invested in Disney + and started watching a show last night that I have been waiting months for. Send me an email if you think you know what it is. 


I am hoping to have a piece of equipment to arrive today via post, which means I can start doing some vlogging and video teaching and maybe even a Mr Romano Youtube page. If you have not already check out Mr Tang's Youtube page. 


One last thing, shout out to Kasper for making an amazing Trojan horse yesterday. His plan was great and the way he has created his Trojan horse was well thought out. I know many of you have done the plan with the model to come later so I am looking forward to seeing them as well.


Have a great day and I will catch you up with another update tomorrow (could be one that included a chapter from nightmare!) Watch this space!

Update No. 3


Good Morning all. 

Wow what a day it was yesterday. The emails that I was getting about not just the work you have done but what else you have been doing made me very jealous. Some of the walks that some of you went on yesterday and the places that you went to were amazing. One piece of work I was sent was done by James. At home James made his own school and rules that he will try to follow (I am sure you will). I love this idea, let me know if you made your own school at home what would you name it and what rules would you have?


My day yesterday was not as good but it was nice seeing what each of you have been getting up to. I mentioned yesterday that I was looking for a new game and I have found one! I have followed the hype going all around at the moment and have invested in Animal Crossing New Horizons. Some of my favourite streamers are playing this at the moment and it is a nice peaceful game perfect for the evening. 


I am seeing you playing on purple mash (email me for log in if you don't have it) and TTRS its great. I also did the Joe Wicks PE at 9am which is being streamed on youtube which is great to be active whilst at home.


As many of you may know food like sport is very important to me and to finish my day yesterday my flatmate and I shared the most amazing chocolate fudge cake. The question is what do you have with it? For example I had custard (cold) with it whilst my flat mate had cream. Email me with what you would have had.


I have ordered a piece of equipment that will help me do a little bit of vlogging so watch this space! 


Have a great day all, stay safe and look after yourself and your family!

Update No. 2

Good morning all! I hope you all had a fun and safe weekend. I will be honest, I did not do much. I am trying to find a game series that I can play and work through during this time. If you have a suggestion for me let me know. It has been a strange weekend, I phoned my mum on Mother's day to see how she is doing. My mum and the rest of my family are well. What did you get up to on Mother's day? As many of you know I really like sport and not having any sport on telly at the moment is making my weekends dull. However, formula 1 has started an e sports series on line and the first one was last night (Sunday) and it was brilliant. It brought back great memories of myself and my best friend Alex and our late night gaming session on Formula one games. We are both not very good and kept on crashing. 


I have seen some amazing pieces of work on Purple Mash. Darius has designed some amazing cars and Florence made some amazing milkshakes. If you do not have your log in, please do email me and I will send you all the details. 


Stay safe, have a great day!

Update No.1

Well having just finished the craziest week I have ever done in teaching. It goes to say that I would not have been able to get through it, without my amazing class. Keep an eye on the distance learning page for your daily tasks. We have also started in the school purple mash. The children who were here for schoolrow! have got their log ins. If you would like yours to have a look at the site and have a play let me know and I will send them to you. I am going to finish with two words; Thank you.
