Dear Otters, 

I'm so pleased that we'll be able to stay in touch using this blog! From now on, I will be posting messages here on the blog and leaving your suggested daily home learning activities on our class page.

Love from,

    Hello Ms Lamble! Over the holidays, I have been working on two beavers' badges. I enjoyed the science experiments one. I liked making slime! What have you been doing? Love, Leo
  • Ms Lamble 5 months ago
    Dear Leo, I'm delighted to hear from you. I'm impressed to hear you've made slime, that sounds fun! Over the holidays, I read lots of books and ate lots of chocolate! Have you read any good books recently? Love, Ms Lamble

    Hello Ms Lamble, we've had a great Easter and hope you have too! I am missing Otters. We just did the sound effects lesson and we loved it. I like the body percussion video too and I am experimenting with table percussion. I found a little duckling running around in my backyard on Thursday and it is so cute, so we decided to keep it safe because the chickens were pecking it and the mother duck had gone away. We tried to look for its nest but we couldn't find any so we put it in a box at night time and under a crate outside in the sun on the grass in the day time with water and chick food. One of our hens has hatched out 5 chicks. The bantam chick and the brown chick are really tame and I can catch them and stroke them. When I opened my hands to try to put the bantam chick down, it didn't hop off. It just sat there and curled up in my hands and looked at me. lots of love from Freya xxxxxxxxxx (dictated by Freya, typed by mum!)

    Hello Ms Lamble, Your holiday sounds really fun! Do you know me and my daddy, painted a garden swing and we made a train out of a cardboard box? Also I have been riding my bike a lot- I went for over 6 miles ride the other day and I wasn't even tired! We all have been playing a lot in the garden as well. Love from Olivia (and Zachary)

    Hi Freya, Your bantam chick sounds absolutely adorable! I'm glad you enjoyed the sound effects lesson, I thought all the Otters would enjoy it. Love, Ms Lamble

    Hi Olivia (and Zachary), Wow - you've done lots of exciting things during the holiday. Your mummy sent a video of you riding your bike to Mrs Fox and she sent it to me. I am so impressed by your riding! Love, Ms Lamble

    hello I have been playing on the trampoline with my brother Carter and today I have been making a cake for my mummy because tomorrow it is her birthday. We made a little pond with tadpoles in it. What is your favourite animal? love Lola :)

    Dear Ms Lamble, we have been doing a lot of baking recently and we made our own pasta yesterday using flour and eggs. It was very tasty and we had it with parmesan cheese. I have been reading a collection of how to train your dragon books and right now I am on book number 10. There are 12 in the set. I think they are really good so far and they are very interesting. Daddy got us a new explorers kit recently and a fire steel so we have been exploring nature and we made a few campfires on Daddy's slate with hay. I haven't made a fire yet but Ray has. Be careful when you make fires and we only do it with a grown up. But it would be handy to make a fire if you were lost in a forest or jungle to see in the dark, to keep yourself warm and keep nocturnal animals away like foxes. You can cook food on fire, I would cook pasta on there because I like it. I did lots of crafts including making an Easter bunny and Easter chick cardboard box hat (the chick was for Ray and the bunny was for me). Today we went for a walk and we collected loads of heart shaped rocks and called them hope rocks and wished with them. Love from Sylvi xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Hi Ms. Lamble. I have a lots of fun with my family and our dogs. Last night my dog Buddy caught a bird in the garden! We go for long walks everyday and me and my sister discovered secret passageway to the fields behind ours house where we love to play and make mud soup. I miss you and Mrs. Jolliffe and all my friends! Love from Bianca

    Hi Ms Lamble, I am missing you lots! I have been walking almost every day over Easter.. sometimes 5km sometimes 6km, I have walked over 110km in total! We have been having lots of fun in the garden and reading lots of books. The Easter bunny brought me Awful Auntie and Slime by David Walliams and every day I have been listening to David’s audio books online. I have been doing lots of arts and crafts including decorating pebbles and painting rainbow fridge magnets. Harry and I have been hiding our crafts on country walks for other people to find. I am enjoying writing letters and sending pictures to my cousins and my nanny and grandad in the post. Love Isla xxx

    Dear Lola, Happy Birthday to your mummy! I bet she loves the cake you've made. It must be so exciting to watch your tadpoles growing. My favourite animal is a cat, although I also love seahorses and whales. What is your favourite animal? Love from, Ms Lamble
  • Ms Lamble 5 months ago
    Dear Sylvi, WOW! You've been really enjoying your reading! I like the 'How to Train Your Dragon' books too. Have you seen the films? I'm glad that you've been doing so many fun activities. I particularly like the idea of finding hope rocks - how beautiful. I will try and find some hope rocks myself. Love from, Ms Lamble
  • Ms Lamble 5 months ago
    Dear Bianca, A secret passageway - how exciting! I enjoy making mud soup too. I hope Buddy let the bird go eventually! I saw Mrs Jolliffe yesterday and she is missing all of the Otters lots and lots. I will send her your love. Love from, Ms Lamble

    Dear Isla, Goodness, you've walked such a long way - I'm impressed! Are you managing to do some dancing while you're at home? I'm glad you're enjoying reading and listening to David Walliams' books, I think they're really funny. It's a lovely idea to hide your crafts for other people to find and I bet your cousins and nanny and grandad love receiving your letters. Love from, Ms Lamble
