Great British Bake Off


Hi Class 8,


I am really missing you all very much and I wish we could just go back to normal, but your patience and hard work is more important than ever right now, so keep it up! This week I decided to bake some cookies. Now, the cookies do not look very tasty, but I can promise you that they were amazing! We used milk chocolate, white chocolate and M & Ms to make the cookies gooey and full of flavour - mmm!


Can you bake something this week and send me a picture? You could even write me a recipe so I could try to make them myself! I would love to see how you are all getting on at home. Make sure to contact me via email at:


Stay stafe,

Mr Walmsley x

Kitten Alert


Hi Class 8,


This week I have a new task to keep me busy at home.. looking after our new kitten. Meet Otis - he is only 7 weeks old and is extremely mischievous. He spends most of his time running around doing flips, attacking my feet and hissing at his brother Charlie when he gets too close. I am sure that they will become the best of friends. I hope that you're all safe and keeping busy. Don't forget to listen to our class read video this week, which includes chapter 6 and 7 of James and the Giant Peach.


Stay safe,

Mr Walmsley

VE Day Celebrations


On Friday, we celebrated VE Day in our front garden. We had a picnic with sandwiches and party ring biscuits, we listened to Absolute Radio 40s and I even painted my face!



Why not send me a picture of what you did to celebrate via email at:


When you send me a picture, I will email parents back to confirm that you would like the picture sharing on our class page. Do not worry if you do not want them sharing on the page, you can still email myself pictures to keep me updated with what you are doing.


Your work for next week is now available on our Class Page, please remember to complete as much as you can!


Stay safe, Mr Walmsley x

Breaking News: Mr Walmsley fails his barber course!


Unfortunately, I decided to cut my own hair due to lockdown! Don't laugh too hard Class 8 (or parents) but here is a sneak peak of the result after 4 long weeks of having a cold head. Remember to keep me updated with what you are all doing!


Stay safe, Mr Walmsley x
