Mrs Hales

Dear Parents/Carers,

We are nearly out of the woods and I would like to take this opportunity to tell you how much I have enjoyed teaching your children this year, despite the sad interruption. 
Thank you for helping me to help you support your children in these very weird times!

All the very best 

Mrs Hales

Here is the new timetable for all KS2 children who are learning from home.
Follow the timetable or decide for yourself which days and times suit your learning.
Try your best to do some reading, writing and maths every week (every day if you can).

Remember mistakes are marvellous!
Your best is always enough
and when we struggle with work, we learn the most!

Longer, meatier projects to inspire your imagination...



I think the book is about a cow that goes to the country and eats apples and pancakes. Because it says country pancake and has an apple with a cow going to eat it. By Edward


I have seen the new book on the website and it looks good. I have seen the front cover and I think a cow has an apple and some people take it and make it into pancake and they all argue. By Gracie

I think that the cow might be called Pancake or maybe it might have a poo and this might be something to do with the title of the book because Mummy says that a cow pat can sometimes be called a pancake? I’m not sure. I think the apple might be what the cow likes to eat, so the cow lives on a farm with apple trees. By George B


I think it will be about a cow and a really delicious pancake and he wants to eat it.
By Jamie


I think the story is going to be about a clever cow that goes into the country and makes an apple pancake. He watches TV then he sees a bake off. After that he goes to the bake off and competes against other people... By Finley


I think that it is going to be set in the country because is it called ‘The Country pancake”. I also think that the cow on the front is going to eat the pancake and it is also might be an apple pancake. By Lorna


I think this book will be about a cow who peels an apple and then uses the apple skin to make a pancake for the whole country! By Chloe


I predict the book is going to be about a cow who is famous and he lives on a farm. His name could be Pancake. I think this because there is a cow on the front cover of the book so that might mean there is a cow in the story. By Meg


I think it is going to be about a big bit of cow pat because they look like pancakes.
I also think there’s going to be a house and they prank each other like the Twits.
The man gives a bit of cow pat to the lady who thinks it’s a pancake.
By Tommy


I think the book is about a cow who likes to eat lots of food. I think the book will be on a popular country farm where people can visit and the cow will be the main character. I think this because the cow on the cover looks hungry for more food and is looking down at the apple. By Charlie


My prediction is a cow makes milk and makes it into a pancake then puts some apples on the pancake. It will be set in countryside maybe on a farm because in the title it said ‘country’. From Jake


Maybe the cow is called pancake and lives in the country. Possibly the cow eats apples (and likes them peeled). Maybe the cow makes pancakes. The cow lives on a farm which might make all the ingredients for pancakes and cows produce milk. It might be the story of the cow's life. By Ivy
