Jake has made this wonderful jungle word search for you all to have a go at. You can also see it in our gallery too. Why not ask an adult to print it out and have a go? When you have finished send your picture back to me and I can share them with Jake for you. 

Hi Class 5,


I hope you are all well. What are you guys up to? I am missing you all lots and are hoping you are staying safe.

I have stayed busy in the garden this week, as now some of my flowers that I planted have started to flower. I think this is exciting because I have never had flowers that I have grown from seed so I am feeling rather proud.

What do you guys think?





Mrs Battersby bought me a fairy house last year and the fairy house has now found a home in the garden. I hope that I soon have a fairy living in my garden.





We also put a Winnie the Pooh transfer that we got at Christmas on the nursery wall.




Gizmo has had a very chilled out week. Mr Wilkinson took him for a walk and he met a rabbit. He really wanted to play with the rabbit and started to cry when Mr Wilkinson wouldn’t let him. Gizmo doesn’t quite understand that most dogs would chase a cat or a rabbit, he just wants to be best friends with any animal.





Why not send me an email to let me know what you are getting up to.

All you have to do is write a story that takes 2 minutes to read, so that other children can read it when brushing their teeth and know they have brushed their teeth for long enough. It could be a funny, happy or even a scary story! Anything you want.


Once you have written your story, send it to

Jolly Roger Flags


This week we have worked on our printing skills. The children have enjoyed creating their own spooky versions of the Jolly Roger.




Today we learnt how paper was made and we also looked at how paper is recycled. We used some already used paper and recycled it ourselves.

Recycling Plastic

Today we used the plastic bags we have collected and turned them into skipping ropes to play with. We had lots of fun and were happy that the plastic bags would not end up in landfill or the ocean.

Safety Seymour

Safety Seymour came to school to help us all learn about carbon monoxide. All the children loved taking part in the activities and got to take home a carbon monoxide alarm for their home.

Fire Safety

We had lots of fun learning how to get out of a house safely if there was a fire. The firefighters also explained what a smoke alarm was for and how we could check that they were working in our houses. 



We have explored how colour is made in our science lessons. The children enjoyed making a colour wheel and discussing what happens to the colours. 

Police Visit 


Today we had a visit from the police. The children got to ask questions about their job and find out about how the police help the community.
