As we did not have the best of weather last week it may have put some people off from doing the bird watch but it's not too late! We are going to have better weather I believe so please spare half an hour to sit back and watch out for our feathered friends. Count how many of each you can see and send your results to us. Our aim is to find out which is the most popular bird in the Bellevue area.

This week we are going to be authors and write our very own class book about animals. Even though we are apart this is a lovely way for us all to come together.   You can choose that animal that really interests you. It can be anything from a tiny, wriggly caterpillar to an enormous, angry elephant. How exciting!

We hope you enjoy your on-line learning this week.
