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.

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.

Who's this handsome chap in the garden?

Ruby's family have welcomed more chicks and ducklings hatch so Ruby has been kept busy looking after them. She has been learning lots of new skills and has been a great help around the home and outdoors!

As promised on our Zoom get together, here is our own rock star playing his electrical drum set!

Joseph went crabbing and he was very excited to tell me that not only did he manage to catch 6 crabs, but he also caught the biggest one!!!

This super-smashing boy was set various challenges from Beavers - tying his shoe laces, friendship knot and reef knot - he nailed did it!

This young man has been completing challenges at Beavers and mastering the tying of different knots. I love hearing about this and of course receiving these beautiful pictures. Thank you for your kind words - I miss you too, Elliott!

Book Reviews and Recommendations

Watch my video over on Torrisholme TV (Mrs Patel's Favourite Stories) with some ideas on how to write your book review. Happy reading!

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.

Another wonderful video from the garden, this time explaining how to plant a flower.

Calling all Historians, Geographers and Scientists πŸ“£

It's wonderful to see that you are taking control of your learning and becoming truly independent learners. As you independently research new and exciting facts as historians, geographers, scientists (and more), I will share your knowledge with your friends and families right here. 

Random Acts of Kindness

Many of you have brightened up your windows with a colourful rainbow to show your appreciation to the NHS, key workers, the bin men, the milkman or to simply spread some happiness to all those people who may walk past your home during their daily exercise. Let's stay smiling
