The Naughty Bus


Hello Explorers, 

Have you heard about the Naughty Bus? 

The children are making buses in the classroom this week. We will read the story and learn about buses.


We thought you could watch this video clip and learn about the naughty bus that goes on an adventure. 


This story is fantastic because you can make your own story about a bus too! 

What would your bus do?

Where would it go? 

What could you add to the story? 

You could create or write your own Naughty Bus story. You could tell us your story by using recording it but you might need an adult to help you.

Hello Explorers,


We have had some exciting news from Mrs Coles.  She had some visitors in her garden but they only come out at night, they are Nocturnal. They have black hair, short legs and a white stripe on their noses. 

Can you guess who visited her garden?




Mrs Coles filmed them in her garden and we have a film clip for you to find out more information about Nocturnal animals. 

Badgers in Mrs Coles garden.


Here is a BBC short clip about badgers.


A link to an activity pack that can be printed to find out more about Nocturnal animals.

Hi Explorers,

Today I went for a walk to the lake that is near to my home and I watched the different birds. I saw ducks, moorhens, geese, doves and pigeons.  I decided to make a fact sheet about the geese using some of the photo's that I had taken.  You can see it below.    

Your challenge this week is to make a fact sheet about an animal that you really like.  Perhaps it could be your pet? 

Have fun and remember that you can send them to me at

Your writing challenge this week is to make up a story using some of the objects below.  It doesn't have to be very long and you can draw pictures and tell your grown up what happens if you prefer.  Perhaps you would like to help me to finish my story.


Can you make up your own story?

14th April 2020


Hi Explorers, 

I have added some fun minibeast challenges for you to try.  Perhaps you could talk with your grown up about what would happen if a snail came into our classroom and wanted to play!! What would you say to it? Would you let it play a game with you?

If you wanted you could write inside the speech bubbles what the ladybirds are saying to each other.  

Have a great time.


Week beginning 6th April 2020


Can you create your own story?
