Mastering New Skills or News to Share? Let's Celebrate!!!

Whether you are helping around the house, learning to bake, getting creative, planting in the garden, juggling, mastering a cartwheel, gracefully front flipping on your trampoline, I want to hear from you!

Macy has made this lovely home for Plop the baby Barn Owl from The Owl Who Was Afraid of The Dark. I love all the details she has added, ensuring it is a warm, cosy and practical place for Plop to sleep and make his home.

This piece of art gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. For me, it represents light, hope and new beginnings.

I love this crescent moon and star made my Ben.

A beautiful smile from our very own Little Miss Sunshine. She has finished reading her 11th book all by herself!!! One is missing because she very kindly lent it to a friend. I wonder if you can spot any that you might have read already.

In the Garden

Hope you are enjoying the glorious sunshine! It's the perfect time to learn about animals and nature. Could you plant some seeds and watch them grow? Remember plants need lots of love so water them carefully and nurture them with a song or story. It would be bloom-in' marvellous to hear how you get on!

Daniel has planted courgettes, carrots, cabbage and broccoli! He's been watering them everyday.
