Some lovely stories

We received some wonderful post last week - in the envelope there were fabulous story books from our friends in Woodpecker class in Brighton! 
 We thought the stories were excellent and were so amazed by the neat handwriting. We were also impressed with all the wow words that were used. The stories were based on Dick Whittington, but with some other animals. Fab work!
 The books were illustrated beautifully too! You are great writers Woodpeckers! Thank you for sharing your stories with us!

Helping Backwoods Billy Baxter!

Well we found out a lot from another Australian who showed us the types of animals that Bill 
would usually film. Look here if you want to see. We learned some more good tips, like 
having heat sensitive cameras. 

We also realised that Backwoods Billy Baxter might not even recognise British animals, or know what they sound like, so we have set to work producing guides books for him. Look out for 
them here soon!

Backwoods Bill might be more used to the kookaburra!

Backwoods Billy Baxter

Backwoods Billy Baxter, a famous nature film-maker, has come all the way from Australia to find out about nocturnal animals, but has been unable to catch any on camera! So the expert volunteers at WPIT decided to give him a bit of advice. They should know, they've been watching wildlife for a long while now. They decided that they may have to make a guide book too, to show Billy what he's actually looking for. After all he's probably more used to crocs and koalas! Some of the volunteers came up with some top tips to help Billy!

Wildlife Protection and Investigation Team

The voluntary organisation WPIT had a bit of job to do today when they received a letter from a member of the public who is a fellow nature lover. Mrs Jones stated how she was disappointed with the website, that there wasn't a lot of information on it.

 So the volunteers have set to work rectifying this and have made a good start gathering their information. Now they just have to wait for the website volunteers to get it all on the site. Take a look at it by clicking on the webpage here:

Owl watching on the owl cam!

Click on the picture to go to the live webcam and watch the owls! It's so exciting and a bit addictive too!
We have imagined in our work that we put up the owl box and put the camera in place. We love seeing how our owls are getting on!

Badger Publishing Company

We had videomail from a Miss Read this week and she had a bit of a problem. She was going on holiday and didn't have enough room in the case for her daughter's favourite book - The Hungry Caterpillar. She wanted to know if we could help. We thought about it for a while and came up with some good ideas. We thought that the best idea was that we make her daughter a book on the ipad. So we set to work.

What do you think of our stories? We changed them a bit because we thought her daughter might like to listen to something new!

Caitlin's 100 word challenge

Today was a sunny day so mummy and daddy took us to the zoo. We went in the morning and walked around and saw some giraffes and some monkeys. The monkeys were jumping around and eating bananas. They were very funny and silly. The giraffes have very long necks and were reaching up to get some leaves for their lunch. This made us hungry so we had our picnic by the lions. We finished our lunch and watched the lions eat their meat. We saw the clouds had come and it had gone dark. Mummy said we should go as the weather changed for the worst.
