Miss Collison challenged her Year 2 children to write a non-chronological report based on a mystery egg that she found in Jiggy's stable. They had to begin by researching the type of egg they believed it was and then they needed to use this information to write a non-chronological report. Joshua did some amazing work!
Charley has been sharing his skills with his grandad. He showed him how to make choc chip cookies, then sold some to Charley's dad using toy money. Dad was shocked that they were so expensive, but Charley was able to say if he had given him the correct money for the cookies!

Even in this difficult time there are always little glimmers of joy! Gertrude, the school sheep who will be coming to our school, has had a beautiful and very healthy lamb! She is a girl, and is absolutely stunning and Miss Williams can’t wait for you all to meet her!
We need your help! Currently, the little baby lamb has no name, so we are asking you to e-mail Miss Williams - email@example.com - with names beginning with D. We will then put your suggestions into a hat and she will then pick one out! Good luck!
Emily has been a very busy bee....she has been completing schoolwork and did lots of baking for VE Day, then enjoyed a picnic in her front garden!

Kiera and Lilly have kept themselves entertained - they have both been doing school work most mornings, including Spellings with a test every Friday, Maths and Reading. They have both enjoyed learning about the human body; they have been exercising most days with their gymnastics club; they have face-timed friends and have sent postcards of themselves with friends in the post, who they are missing very much. They have been learning life skills and have both set up personal goals to achieve whilst being off.
Kiera has challenged herself to be a free reader, reading most days, and she has learnt to tell the time and not just keep asking Alexa! She has also achieved more skills with her gymnastics, pushing herself to be more confident.
Lilly has learnt to ride her bike and we have biked around the village, learning cycling proficiency, She has also learnt to tie up shoe laces so she can have a new pair of PE trainers for school, and has also learnt how to tell the time, along with learning more gymnastic skills.
They are enjoying themselves and making memories whilst living in these horrible circumstances, so that when the question is asked, this is what they will remember.
As for mummy....she shaved her head to show her support for the NHS!!

He has been learning about spring, the different weathers and what helps things to grow. Harry, his brother Billy, and their dad, have extended their vegetable patch this year. They have now got carrots, leeks, cabbages, lettuce, petit pois, mange tout, chives and radishes! They have also planted a blueberry bush, a plum tree and an apple tree. Fingers crossed they will all grow...
Most importantly they have all been enjoying family fun!
Charley did some maths homework and then wrote the following story:
Nurse Charley helps to save the NHS. Charley is a blue elephant . She works for the NHS and she is a nurse. Hello!
There was a very bad germ called the Coronavirus . The germ makes elephants very poorly and sometimes they need to go to hospital. Charley would try to make elephants better, but there were too many patients because some elephants outside Charley's hospital were not listening to the rules.
The rules are:
* don't go outside your house only in your own yard or garden
*don't see your friends only talk on the phone and face time
*only go out when you need shopping and medicine
*stay 6 feet or 2 metres away from other elephants
*only go out once a day for exercise
Charley wears a mask, visor and a gown every day to protect her and her patients. When she wears it for a long time she gets very hot and tired.
Charley cries most days because she doesn't want elephants who have Coronavirus to die.
But some do and that is very sad.
Everyone can get the Coronavirus
Charley wants you to STAY HOME, PROTECT THE NHS AND SAVE LIVES.
BE LIKE AN ELEPHANT
BE LIKE NHS CHARLEY
NEVER FORGET THE RULES

Miss Collison was in school today. Along with the children, she painted this beautiful sunflower for the sunflower initiative that was released by emergency services yesterday!

Logan and his brother built their very own big house, using lots of materials from around the garden. He also wrote a sentence about they did at the weekend.
Some of the children did chalk drawings on the school car park,just inside the school gates, so that when the key workers come to collect their children, they can see how grateful we are for all they are doing!
The few children that have been coming in to school have helped Mrs Ransom to plant some flowers along the borders at the front of the school. They put some of the painted rocks, which have been found around the village, next to the plants as a reminder in the future of this very strange time we find ourselves in now!
Here's what Logan and his brother have been up to while at home. They have played with cornflour and water and also made a pirate ship! They have painted some stones that they have put around the village and Logan has played with Hama Beads, of which he has made various ones to send to his grandparents!
Dionne and Joshua have been painting rocks and then hiding them, as well as finding some that other children have done, and re-hiding those too! They have also coloured and re-decorated their shed. Meanwhile, during one of their walks, they found a gift with a note, and they followed the instructions on the note and gifted two things back for other people to find!

We would like to say a massive 'well done' to Florence in Year 5, who completed a sponsored 24 hour silence, (we'll never know how she managed that...) and she has raised a whopping £1000 for the Covid-19 Department at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King's Lynn. Way to go Florence!
