Sleepy Badger

Hello lovely Badgers! How are you all? I hope you all had a good week. We had a good week at school with the Year 3 children coming back to school – it was great to see them! We also said goodbye to our amazing Year 6 children. Their speeches were a joy to listen to and made us all cry both tears of joy and sadness to see them leave. We wish them every happiness on their next adventure. πŸ™‚

One of the lovely Year 3 children suggested we do an activity on YouTube called ‘Draw with Rob’ – it was brilliant!

I have included the link so that you can do these drawing activities as well. We all did drawings of this incredible cute dinosaur – I hope you have fun. There are lots of other drawings that you can do. I know that some of you have done one of the drawings as part of a Guinness World Record attempt: your drawings of the whales were amazing. πŸ™‚

Hello brilliant Badgers! Where are the weeks going? It has been so lovely to hear from lots of you this week and to see some of you at school. I am missing you all lots and it really makes my week hearing all about your news.

At school we have been continuing our work looking at the Hamsey habitat and next week we are going to be taking a closer look at an animal that lives in our school grounds and compare it to our favourite animal. I would love you to post or email some facts that you have found out about your favourite animal. I’m thinking I might be learning about horses, cats, tigers, storks, grass snakes … Oh the list is endless!

One of our fellow Badgers has been to visit The Knepp Estate and seen the storks flying and spotted a Purple Emperor Butterfly, Roe Deer and a Grass snake – how exciting. You can read their post on our Hamsey Badgers blog. Another fellow Badger has spotted a badger in their garden in the day time! What a treat!Purple Emperor Apatura iris

It’s great to see so many of you enjoying the activities on Purple Mash. We have been learning how to use the Music app and I know that lots of you are enjoying creating games for each other to play. I have also been impressed to hear that lots of you are continuing to practise your musical instruments.

Can guess who it is? Well, I am very impressed with all your efforts. Some people are feeding the birds, others are planting wild flowers to attract bugs and bees to our local patch.
