National Park Young Ambassadors 

 

The Beacons National Park has opened an initiative allowing young children to become self assessed National Park Young Ambassadors. It’s a really simple, fun way to help children connect with nature and their local environment. It focuses on four key areas, Discovery, Enjoyment, Understanding and Conservation.
It’s a great little exercise that is simple, free and might help you share some outdoor leaning time together.

Hello everyone!
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and the theme is “kindness.”

Mr Ford made bacon and egg toasties for breakfast while I decorated the garden with bunting that I made in the week. I also hung  some bunting of the flags of the European countries we had left over from a party once. We then enjoyed a lovely picnic in the garden with our two Westies- Henry and Oscar. We listened to some music and sang songs. 

 

Hope you all had lots of fun at home with your families.

Take care

Love from Mrs Ford xx

My Grandad Mr Owen Filer

My  Grandad Mr Owen Filer 1

WE REMEMBER THEM

This is my Grandad Owen who served in the Army in India in WW2 and later served in the military police there between the years of 1940 and 1945. 

He turned 100 years old on 19th October 2019. 

 

My other Grandad Phillip ( who unfortunately I don't have a photo of in his uniform) served in the Merchant Navy.

He was only 15 years old but you had to be 17 years old- he told a little fib to join.

He travelled all over South America, South Africa and Europe. He left the navy early due to medical reasons and then met my Nan. 

 

We raised a toast to them yesterday yesheart

I enjoyed VE day celebrations by decorating our front garden by hanging red, white and blue bunting.

My two boys Evan and Jake helped by colouring in the bunting. I also planted red, white and blue flowers into pots to put in my back garden- Lissy, my dog is tried to help too!

We also had a lovely BBQ and waved to our neighbours across the street.

 

Hope you all had fun with your families on VE day.

Take care everyone

Love from Miss Attwood xx

 26.04.20 Morning boys and girls!

 

As part of our International Project I thought I would choose Greece to inspire me and because I love Greek foodlaughyes

So for lunch one day last week I made a delicious Greek salad, with home-made coleslaw, warm toasted pitta bread, olive bread and traditional tzatziki dip. I enjoyed it whilst sat in the garden enjoying the sunshine, pretending I was on holiday in Greece. 

 

Have any of you been to Greece before? Where did you go and what did you enjoy about it? 

 

Hope you've had fun this week learning about your chosen country.

If you would like to share any news or photographs of what you've been up to, don't forget you can email me. 

Thank you to those who have already emailed me, it is so lovely to hear from you and your families!

 

Take care and stay safe everyonewink

I've been busy this week making bread for my family, my two girls absolutely loved it! 
I did make a bit of a mess with the flour and got some on my clothes and even in my hair!
It was really easy to make. Have you made any tasty snacks or meals with your families?
Enjoy the sunshine and I'll see you soon!

Boreda and Good morning everyone!

 

How are you all? Hope you are all staying safe and looking after each other.

It is so important to stay active whilst at home so I thought I would share a photo of one of the ways I am staying fit and healthy. Every morning I walk my two dogs which they look forward to.We have a big field near me which they love exploring and having a good run.

 

Enjoy whatever you do.

Remember to stay active and post some of your photos of you and your family enjoying your time at home together. I would love to see them!

 

Take care, stay safe. Miss you all
