Dear Otters,

This week, your Thursday Thunk is:

Could you ever learn too much?

Leave your thoughts in the comments below. I can't wait to hear what you think! 

Love from,

    Hi Ms Lamble. My answer is no, but if you learn a certain amount of stuff then sometimes you can gradually forget some things you learnt. If you see or talk about a certain thing then the memories of your learning will come back. Sylvi x

    Hi again, we have just seen the heart shaped treasure hunt activity I am glad you liked the idea! It was my birthday yesterday, so we were busy doing lots of fun birthday celebrations, but today we will go on the heart shaped treasure hunt and see what else we can find! I recycle lots because I always make things out of cardboard boxes and things we don't need anymore. A while ago I had an idea to change the world and making it a better place by putting reuse, reduce and recycle posters in our window, and when people see them they will put posters in their windows too so everyone will be encouraged to help change the world.

    You can't learn too much because nobody knows everything. Your brain keeps all the things you know and keeps growing. It doesn't get bigger but grows more wires. Love Alex

    Hi Ms Lamble, I think you can learn too much so that your head feels like it might explode! This is the start of my story. I typed it myself. (Mummy helped with this message and I told her what I wanted to edit in my story below and she made the corrections as I was starting to get tired). Skiddles Have you ever wondered if magic is real? Well if you have it is! My story is about a boy and rainbow creatures. The boy was called Joey. Joey lived on a farm. Joey had slick black hair, crystal blue eyes and rose red lips. One night there was a full moon and Joey could not get to sleep. So he ran out on to the farm and nearly stepped on a baby Skiddle!

    Late post (from Save the Pangolins - Tuesday) I love that some Pangolins can live in trees. Well not in England, but it is still cool.

    We went on our heart finding walk and this time Ray found a heart shaped piece of concrete. It has been very handy as we have been able to use it as an extra step under the cat flap, as our cat Misty has been struggling a bit to get up to the cat flap. I found another heart shaped stone. At the beginning of the walk there was a HUGE rat outside our gate (not alive). Daddy had to put it in the bush. We wondered how it got there and if Misty had anything to do with it.... I have also been woodlouse and bug hunting again as I got a microscope for my birthday. Sylvi x

    Hi Ms Lamble Sometimes i think that my head might explode with information but it doesn't. I think that it is good to learn, but not everything at once as I would be more likely to forget. I hope you are well love Leo ;-)

    Dear Sylvi, I hope you had a very happy birthday! I love your idea about the reduce, reuse, recycle posters in our windows - do you have a photo you could send of yours? Love from, Ms Lamble

    Dear Lola, Tee hee! Love from, Ms Lamble

    Dear Alex, I agree! Our brains are amazing and grow new wires with all the amazing new things we learn. Love from, Ms Lamble

    Dear Leo, Remember, that 'exploding head' feeling sometimes happens when your brain is growing and getting stronger, which is a good thing even though it's tiring! I love the start of your story and I am desperate to learn more about skiddles. Love from, Ms Lamble

    Dear Alex, I thought you would be interested in pangolins too! Which Pokemon do you think they look like? Love from, Ms Lamble
  • Ms Lamble 2 weeks ago
    Dear Sylvi, Oh dear, maybe Misty fancied rat pie for supper! How exciting to have a microscope to explore things with. What's the most interesting thing you've looked at using your microscope? Love from, Ms Lamble

    Dear Leo, I agree, we need to pace our learning to make sure we remember it. I am very well, thank you so much for asking. I hope you and your family are well too. Love from, Ms Lamble
