What’s this weather stuff???

May 31st, 2015

Hi Dolphin class, hope you had a great holiday? We visited your school last week only to find out that you weren’t there!! When we were there we were confused as the sky had a large sun on some days but on others water fell from the sky! We were a little confused as on our planet it doesn’t change. This should be very confusing for you as how do you know what to wear each day? Can you explain about your weather for us to understand? Speak to you soon. The Weevils

Hello from the Weevils

May 1st, 2015

Hi year 2 its been a long time since we contacted you! We have been travelling around the galaxy and discovering new things. Last week we visited your planet and noticed some very strange creatures. They all looked different and some were eating each other! What are these animals? Could you tell us about one of them so we can find out their names? What they look like? Where we could find them living and what they are like? We would love to learn as much as we can about your planet. Thank you speak again soon.

The bong trees!

March 25th, 2015

Dear Year 2 children,

Piggy Wig here again! I hope you are having a good last week of term over there at Knowle Park.

Thank you for your amazing descriptions of the Owl and the Pussycat last week. Oh how they helped me brilliantly! Despite the shores of our island being a very busy place indeed, I was able to spot the two of them as soon as they stepped of the boat. What a delightful couple they were!

I hear you have been thinking about what the Bong trees here look like. Well I am the Bong tree expert! I have studied them for many years and have over 200 in my back garden! I tend to them every day and love and cherish them dearly. You won’t believe what they are like!

Sounds like you have been using your imaginations fantastically. I would love to hear your ideas! What do you think they have? What do you think they look like? Please write back with this information at your soonest convenience.

Thanking you again in advance for your kind attention to my letter, I look forward to reading your replies.

Yours most attentively,

Mr. P. Wig.

Help needed to recognise the owl and the pussycat

March 18th, 2015

Dear Octopus class,

My name is Mr. Piggy Wig. I live in the land where the Bong Trees grow, and I have received a message saying that two wonderful animals are coming here to celebrate their wedding! This will be such a joyous occasion. Here on the island we can’t wait to meet them and celebrate!

The problem is that we haven’t met them before, and really don’t know how we will recognise them! Apparently, they are known as Mr. Owl and Miss Pussy Cat (or might it be the other way around?). They sent a text message to Mr. Turkey, to let him know that they were coming, and needed a ring! Mr. Turkey, of course, knew of the fine ring that adorns my nose and asked if I would be willing to share it for the joyous occasion.

Of course, I am more than happy to help (although as the ring is so fine, I’ve been thinking hard about how much I should charge them). I am going the shore this very day to meet them as they arrive in their boat. However, with so many boats and animals coming and going, it may be a little hard to identify them!

Could you help, do you think? If you could possibly reply with a written description, it would make my job much easier. I know nothing of their appearance, behaviour or personalities! Thanking you in advance for your kind attention to my letter, I look forward to reading your replies.

Yours most attentively,
Mr. P. Wig.

Which vehicle should I choose?

February 23rd, 2015

Hello Dolphins,

I see that you have been very busy designing, constructing and painting your vehicles. You have done so fantastically to have added so many exciting and interesting features to them.

I feel very lucky to have so many different cars, vans and trucks to choose from! But, now I have a new problem… Which one should I choose? Which one is the best for me?

Could you please all write  to me in your Literacy books to persuade me to choose your vehicle.  Why should I choose YOURS?

Miss Harris, there is an advert video for the children to watch to help them remember the important features of a persuasive text.

Thanks, Mrs. Armitage

Mrs Armitage wants to find out more about road safety

February 2nd, 2015

Hi Dolphins I hear you have found out all about keeping safe on the roads. I am always telling Breakspear to be careful when he runs along besides me. He sometimes gets very excited and doesn’t always look where he is going! I could do with some tips to help him stay safe. Could you tell me what you learnt on Tuesday and anything I could do to make him as safe as I can? Make sure you remember to keep yourself as safe as you can by following all the advice you have been given.

Lets Have A party!

October 20th, 2014

Hi Year 2,

We hope you are all OK and enjoying your final week of term at Knowle Park.

We are so excited about the party on Thursday. We hope you are looking forward to dining with your guests. We hear you have some chefs coming in to cook with you on Wednesday too. Wow! We wonder what recipes you’ll be cooking with them and can’t wait to see the tasty foods.

We have been so impressed with your recent Topic work- such fantastic map colouring and material sorting! Have you been anywhere to help you with your learning about foods? If you have, we’d love to hear all about it.

Speak soon,
