Easter Challenge EGGstraveganza!

Easter Challenge EGGstraveganza! 1

Well Otters, this Easter break is going to be slightly different than usual but Mrs Gadd and I put our thinking caps on to give you some EGGcellent challenges over the break. 

How many of these challenges can you complete? Can you do any of them with your family?

Ask your adults at home to take lots of pictures of you completing these challenges and most importantly making fantastic memories and send them to me:


I won't be responding to emails over the Easter break but I can't wait to see what you get up to!


Keep safe, keep being kind to one another and most importantly... keep sparkling!

Thank you Otters for all your letters to encourage Hotter to have a bath, I think you'll agree, he looks a lot better. He smells a lot better too... Happy Hotter and Happy Miss Gates! 


You guys are the best!

Otters I need your help! 

Hotter is refusing to have a bath (the washing machine), he says because we have been inside a lot that he doesn't need a bath. He definitely does! I have tried to encourage him, I even got his towel for him but he just threw it on the floor! Can you believe that? He is being very cheeky! Please can you help me, I know he will listen to you. Please can you write a letter to Hotter persuading him to have a bath? Ask your adults to send a picture of your letter to me and fingers crossed I won't have to live with a smelly otter for much longer!


Thank you :)

Look out for Miss Gates!

On Monday at half past 9, I will be having a drive through the village to see how many Otters I can see! If you would like to wave from your front door or from the window, I would love to see your faces! I don't know Aldington too well so if you would like to wave to me then email me your street name and I will make sure I find out where it is. I will leave the school at half past 9 so will see you shortly afterwards.

A message to all the adults at home as well as the Otters.


We are getting close to being a week at home and into our new routine and I know that some of us might be finding this a bit tricky. We are missing our routine, our teachers, our friends, things just being normal so I just wanted to remind you all what a fantastic job you are all doing, Otters and adults! Please don't forget how amazing you are and remember to take time to make some memories as well :) We are all doing the best we can given the situation we are in so just take a moment to remind yourself that you are doing a great job!

The Fuller Boys

The boys have been enjoying their learning this week. I love that they have been playing board games with each other, there's lots of things we can learn from playing board games. Well done boys! They've also been doing one of my favourite things... reading... in jamas, in bed :) perfect! 

Albie's Learning

Albie had a very busy week last week! He painted his rainbow and placed it in the window to remind his friends he still cares about them. He did PE with Joe Wicks, cooking in the kitchen and explored his back garden! What a great week Albie! He also had time to make me a picture! Otter know that I do love a picture :) 


Well done Albie!

Thank you to those of you who have already emailed over some of your fantastic messages and learning. I hope you all enjoyed your first day of learning at home, I can't wait to see more of what you have been up to. 


As you know, I sent home your Inspire 2C book on Friday, this included 'money' and 'time' which we have looked at this term already so hopefully you're showing off your amazing skills with your adults at home. 


As always, any questions please don't hesitate to email me:


Just a little note to say thank you to all of you for all the love, support and kindness that you have shown to all of us, I cannot tell you how much it means to us! 


Happy Tuesday :)
