Sophia has been doing school work, baking jam tarts, having a water bomb fight with Henry; we’ve also been on a bike ride to Barrow Haven nature reserve and down to the Humber Bank.
We’ve been clapping for key workers every Thursday, this week Sophia decided she’d go for a pan and spoon! 💖 Thank you.
Bunting up, hair done in 40’s twist with curls. Poster done. Friday we enjoyed VE Day afternoon tea in the garden. Sophia made Egg Rolls, not as simple as you’d think!

We hope you all had fun too!

This week, Charlie made a raspberry sponge which was delicious.
Elliott and Charlie had a bit of water play while discussing capacity – Elliott got a bit wet. We decided it was time to get the pool out and they’ve loved it.
We had a lovely picnic in the front garden for our VE Day celebration with the PA system playing war time classics.

Freddie‘s VE-75 celebrations. Freddie loved baking biscuits and cakes, making posters, dressing up and the street party ( garden) listening to 1940s music 🙂

We have had a really busy week again out in the garden. We began making room for more veg plots for our “dig for victory” garden which the boys decided to do after watching the PowerPoint on VE day. As we did this we had an amazing find, Dan found an old metal button in a mud ball he squashed up… we knew it was RAF related, from my dad’s uniform photos. After Googling, it became clear it was pre war or at least predated the Queen, as the Crown that is on it, is the King’s Crown not Queen’s, so logic would assume it came from one of 166 Squadrons uniform in WW2. The boys made more decorations for VE day: Casper loved making paper chains.

We also had another find whilst out digging, a small piece of metal which has an inscribed reference number on… which when googled, pulls up pictures of a part of an oxygen mask connector, that joins the mask to ether a portable oxygen tank or airways in a Lancaster bomber. That was a really exiting find! We now have a metal detector and the boys are enjoying combing the garden for more WW2 finds. We also had a walk around the village on V. E DAY to look at everyone’s lovely decorations and buntings.

We had a fabulous day celebrating VE Day, we all spent the morning making decorations and decorating the house. We watched Churchills speech and then enjoyed a socially distanced street party with neighbours.

We all got dressed up for VE Day and had a virtual party with a quiz, dancing, singing in the style of the Andrew’s sisters followed by a tea party 🥳. Beatrice was quiz master. We made bunting. The girls wanted to try and make me up with 1940’s style make up 😳 We all got made up – theirs was a little more subtle than mine🤣
