Archie has been luck enough to receive an early birthday present... An aquarium! After setting it all up over a week ago he was finally able to get some tropical fish on Friday.
Apparently he has literally been sat watching it for the whole weekend!

Dan's Nonsense Poem
The Baboon BASSELD BANGED his head on the celery as he woke up one morning.
He decided to go wobbling like a penguin.
He wiped his things together - his grasers, trogolooks and spectors.
He found a club that was in dazzling Droolers.
They were holding a wobbling competition.
He had 30 minues to have a splish splash splosh.
The 30 minues were up, and he had nothing to do but wack and habble.
He was near the end of the raccoon, happlire he won the raccoon - he got a gald medal for his land.

Don't forget all of the amazing work on our Virtual Sports Week Page
Do you remember the bird box that Sophie and Mia made and painted a few weeks ago? Well, check out their update below:
On the 23rd of May we discovered a bird had made a nest in our bird box.
The 1st of June we saw that there were tiny eggs.
This Tuesday we discovered 4 chicks! We think they might be Swifts but not sure yet.

Below, Daniel has left an awesome review of a book he has just finished reading.
Compton Valance super farts verses the master of time.
I have written a review of a book I have read and its called 'Compton Valance super farts verses the master of time.'
The story was about time travel. They used farts to power the time machine. He assembled a group of people to help him make the time machine and he paid them one thousand pounds each for helping him. A couple of months later, they were nearly there until they found a virus in the machines system. It took them a year to fix the machine but they finally did it and they could go to any time they wanted to.
It was really good.
Thank you Dan for sending this in. This book sounds like a very funny, adventurous story. I really like the idea of being able to visit different periods in time. I hope they don't run out of 'fuel' before they can get back!
It would be lovely to hear about any other exciting books you Hobby guys have discovered that you might recommend to read. Just write a review then email to the hobby email address.

We wanted to try the standing triple jump first.
Here are some pictures of our jump records.
We started by measuring the out the record of Ray Ewry 10.58m which is huge!
Then we had quite few attempts at the jump.
We marked out and measured our best jumps, converting them from inches and centimetres and then into meters our results are;
Dad 6.35m (the tape measure wasn’t long enough for dads jump)
We had fun trying but are now worn out!
Sophie and Mia have done really well with the outdoor learning tasks of creating a sense based scavenger hunt. Here are their finds:
Ellie-Mai has written another wonderful piece of persuasive writing.
I love the powerful use of rhetorical questions.
Yesterday we found out that Hollie was picked as the KS2 winner of the Royal British Legion Drawing Competition. The competition ran over 12 schools!
Hollie won a book voucher and will have her drawing appear in various leaflets for the RBL!
Well done Hollie!
Here is her winning entry:
Ellie Mai has been super busy! She has sent in photos of her VE day bunting hanging up a long with her maths work and the amazing scarab drawing she did after following today's tutorial and then recreated digitally. I am going to have a look for some more drawing tutorials for next week. Maybe I can think of a challenge or two!
Ellie Mai has also been making a wooden box using all sorts of tools. Her last step was painting it in this beautiful colour - and she still seems to have all of her fingers!
Well done Ellie Mai.
P.S. there is a bonus cat in one of the pictures!
Dan has done some amazing work on his shelter project. Here is is final design as well as a bird house he made. Look at the the fantastic bracing on the sides!
Dan has also been keeping up with his Bitesize and has included the fantastic news report that he wrote.
Inspired by a missing bunny in her area, Ellie Mai decided to get straight on the news story!
Keep your eyes peeled!
Do you remember Archie's amazing cake? Well he is now trying his hand at making bread! I think he will be ready for Bake Off soon!
Archie has also been finding some beautiful spots during his exercise.
Do you remember our challenge to make an unusual rainbow?
Here is Ellie Mai's using flowers from the garden. It is so pretty!
Sophie and Mia have found a great way to get help with any tricky maths questions... a video chat with Grandpa!
They have also been working on some amazing VE day crafts. I love your bunting. I can't wait to hear some of your music.

VE Day entries
Hollie, Libby, Sophie and Mia have already done their entries for the VE day competition. Don't forget to get your pictures in before next Friday!
Here I present the tale of Norman the tomato. Up until today he had lived a 'sheltered' life. Little did he know that things were about to change...
Fortunately, Holly did such a good job with her shelter that Norman survived to tomato another day!
I loved Norman the Tomato so much that I asked if Hollie could draw me a comic strip of his traumatic day of testing. She did not disappoint!
Look at his little face!
Sophie and Mia combined their DT and Kindness work and ended up building a bird house. If you look closely in the first picture you can see how they have braced the corners.
I love your paint effect girls! You may need to start taking orders soon!
It was lovely to have a Zoom chat with you guys. Well done to Holly and Freya for winning this week's quiz!
A shout out to Ellie Mai, Daniel and Skye-Rose who joined the chat but weren't in the photo!
Katey and Freya found that the best thing about living next door to your friend is being able to have a social-distancing water fight!
It must be really good for improving your aim!
Ellie Mai is another person who has been super-active with her home learning. As well as working on her maths, English, Shelters and Bug-Club reading she has also been taking part in all the kindness activities. Yesterday Ellie Mai wrote a letter to her aunt as an act of kindness to cheer her up! She has also been making cookies with her sister - Yum!
Dan has been super busy on his shelter project. He has made a teepee and on his daily walk he took photos of all the different shelters he could see around the village - what an amazing idea!
Daniel's dad has also become involved as he is building a shelter over the gas bottles in the garden. I am really looking forward to seeing your amazing bracing Mr Proud. I love the fact that Dan got his sister involved in the shelter building - I think she is going to love the tasks for next week!
Thank you Dan for sending in all your amazing learning.
Ellie-Mai used lolly sticks to make her rigid frame and braced the corners.
What design did you use for yours?
Look at Ellie-Mai's amazing Positive Rocks!
Look out for them as you go on your daily exercise. I love the flowers!
Well done Ellie-Mai!
Here is Katey's fact-file about William Shakespeare.
Katey found out lots of information - which is your favourite fact?
