Free Blue Peter badges!

The BBC are giving away FREE Blue Peter badges to children aged between 6 and 15! The badge allows you to gain free entry to over 200 attractions across the UK including Museums and Zoos.

Browse the badges available on the Blue Peter website and follow the instructions of how to apply… it may be that your child needs to send in a poem, a letter or rhyme etc.
Great idea to keep the young ones occupied!

(It’s also worth checking out the 200 attractions on the website as there’s places we haven’t heard of that look fab! 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♂️)



Hi Everyone,

Remember today is the day that we can all meet up.  Check your emails for an invite to a Google Hangout/Meet.  You then just need to join the hangout and you can have a chat with the rest of your class.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Leavers hoodies!

Just a reminder the deadline for interest is now Friday at 4pm. We will not be sending out order forms to select sizes and colours until we know how many children would like a hoodie (the more that order, the cheaper they are). Once numbers and final prices have been confirmed, you’ll turn be able to select sizes and colours from an order form 🙂

It’s quiz time Year 6!

On Monday 8th June, at 10am, we will be holding an online quiz for Year 6’s with prizes to be won via google hangout. This will be a fantastic way to catch up with your friends virtually and have the chance to be the Year 6 quiz champion. The questions will be a mix of topics to suit all! It would be great to see as many of you as possible join in. If you would like to join in, please pop me an email and I will send you an invite and instructions!

Good Morning All

Hi Everyone,


Who has stolen the sun! 🙁

We can’t really complain, we have had such fantastic weather for Spring.  Keep yourself busy on Google Classroom, I know some exciting art activities have been posted for you.

Also, please remember to join me in a Google Hangout tomorrow at 10.00am, it would be great if we could get the whole class on there.  I will email an invite out to you later today.

Hoping to see you all at the hangout tomorrow.
