Blakeney Blog Monday 4th May
Hi there Blakeney!
I hope you are all okay and staying positive. I miss you all.
Have any of you with pets noticed them acting a bit strangely during lockdown? I think Pogo is suffering from ‘cabin fever’ : she’s been acting weirdly on our walks to the local park. For example, she been trying to run away to get to the river, she’s been sniffing the ground like the horse in Tangled (not sure what for) and has not been interested in catching her ball at all (unheard of – she absolutely loves her ball). I think she knows this situation with lock down is all a bit odd and is missing her regular trips to the beach, Sandrinham and the Lake. She’s even been having a few ‘lockdown dreams’ I think because she’s been wimpering in her sleep and her legs have been moving back and forth as if she’s running! So, I guess pets are struggling with it all a bit too. Have your pets been finding lockdown hard?
This is Pogo cuddling her toy in her while sleeping – she does love to cuddle her toys!
I’ve seen more funny photos on the internet of animals enjoying the freedom they now have in towns and cities. This one shows Pelicans in the bus lane in Australia, if I remember correctly!
How else have I been keeping busy? Well, my friends and I got together on Zoom to have an virtual Pub Quiz. We wrote six questions each (all multiple choice) and dressed up. Then took turns asking/answering questions – holding up A B C or D just like our quizzes in class. It was a lot of fun. You should try it! See if you can sport which one is me – a clue: Lockdown has aged me a bit!!

Well done to those of you who worked on Education City last week – Amanda, Grace, Evelyn, Lily, Isla, Brodie and Franky.I’m seeing some great scores and am encouraged to see some of you are giving it a shot even if you find it tricky sometimes. I want to say a special well done to Grace, Lily and Isla who completed all of the tasks set – Maths, English reading and English Writing. Keep up the good work everyone!
New work is set for you every Monday and you have a whole week to complete it. Just go straight to the EdCity website and log in with you user name and password (give to you before school closed). If any of you have lost the login details, contact school and we’ll sort it out.
