By popular demand - Return of the Easter Bunny


....." Hello.....hello....can you hear me at Easter Bunny H.Q?

I'm sorry but I'm so so lost,and don't know what to do.

It's that time of year again when Spring is in the air,

and I've got this delivery of chocolate eggs and all of them to share.


But my, with all these names and numbers, my head is in a spin,

with Little and Great Shelford where does a bunny begin?

Is it Spinney Drive or Ashen Green I hop to on my round?

And on route to Courtyards do I cross The Recreation Ground?


I'm not sure if Garden Fields is nearer than Woollards Lane

and even with my map right here, it all looks much the same.

North, south, east and west, please offer me some clue,

or I'll be sacked, end up in a pot as tasty rabbit stew.


You see the children love my yummy, oh so sweet,

So can you help me, the Easter bunny, somewhere in....erm....Church Street?


Year 4 and BaboushkaK6 Telephone kiosk

What is Baboushka doing in the telephone box?  She is usually so busy with her housework.  Maybe she has decided that other things are more important

“Hello, is anyone there?”

“Yes, Baboushka, it’s me your Aunty.  What do you want?”

“Sorry Aunty but I can’t talk for long, I’ve been so busy dusting and cleaning, polishing the toys in the cupboard, let alone feeding the cat.”

“Why do you want to clean the toys, Baboushka?”

“Well, it’s quite a long story.  It started when three Kings came to my door.”

“Wow!  Are you kidding?”

“No it’s true.  Now, where was I?  Oh yes, and the Kings came in. They said they would stay until night time and then follow the star which would lead them to the Baby King.  They asked me if I would go with them and I said I would come the next morning.”

“So did you?”

“Yes, I did. Please can you tell me if you see a special baby or three Kings. I have been searching for years and giving my toys to any baby or small child that I see just in case it is the Baby King.  I must be on my way again.”

“I will let you know if I do. Bye”

Beep . . . beep . . . beep

Our thanks to Emily Semple in Year 4 for representing this traditional Russian folk tale with her clever telephone conversation, and to Year 4 for dressing Baboushka.

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third

Book Review By Madeline Johnston: Year 3


There’s a Viking in the phone box! Who is he? He’s Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third, the ‘struggling to be a hero’ Viking from the recent film ‘How to Train your Dragon’, which was inspired by Cressida Cowell’s book of the same name. We’re reading this in Year 3 and have been writing book reviews. Does Madeline Johnston’s book review make you want to get a copy?


Title: How to Train your Dragon  

Author: Cressida Cowell

What the book is about: This is a story about a boy called Hiccup He has a very young dragon called Toothless. Toothless is a very naughty, rude little dragon. Cressida Cowell was inspired by living on an island off the coast of Scotland It was stormy and covered in mountains, the perfect place for dragons to live!

What I enjoyed about this book: It was exciting because it filled you with suspense and excitement. You feel as if you really want to know what happens next

Who I would recommend this book to: I would recommend this book to my friends because it is exciting and fun to read

Score: I think my score should be 9/10 because I think I have books I like more, but this is still good.

Ring ring . . . ring ring . . .

Hello.  Police Station here.  How can I help you?

I need help.  I’m a Maypole Dancer, GET ME OUT OF HERE!

Sorry, I didn’t quite catch that.

I said:  I am a Maypole Dancer, GET ME OUT OF HERE!

Where are you madam?

I’m stuck in a phone box outside Shelford Primary School.

OK.  I’ll be there in a jiffy.

Oh, and by the way, I need to be out of here by 2pm to go to the SHELFORD SCHOOL PTA MAY FAIR.

3 hours later . . . and a furious Maypole Dancer shouts into the phone:

ARRRRHHH!!!  I’m going to miss everything: 

All the games – Coconut Shy, Hook the duck, Rocket making and launching, the soft toy tombola, not to mention the Silent Auction.

All the food and drinks – The Hog Roast and falafel, the Pimms tent, the cream teas and those yummy cakes AND the ice creams.

All the things to buy  - the plants, the books, and all those other wonderful stalls they always have at the Shelford School Fairs.

But most importantly the ... the Maypole Dancing which is opening the Fair followed by the Pat-a-cake Polka! Sob!
