Today, I've dragged myself away from the TV to do some of those important jobs around the house that need doing - like fixing up a vintage 1974 amplifier. I'd like to know if you've been doing anything in the line of repairs, craft or making things. We made some tall towers at mini-school the other day. I've been listening to Radio Caroline on the amplifier now it's fixed up and I've discovered a new band called "Cabbage". (I haven't listened to more than 1 track so I don't know if the lyrics are suitable for all ages!) They remind me of the bands I used to listen to a while back. I cleared a load of dust out of it and there's a slight smell of burning so I'd better go.
It's Monday morning and I've got a few pictures to share from the last few days.
Had a fun day in school on Friday with KS1. I was arrested many times and put in the teepee jail, (I managed to escape on a scooter!) We joined KS2 in the afternoon and did some artwork with Mrs Jones:
Back at home, Gethin and I continued to tackle the garden. We scrubbed the patio and weeded like crazy!
Tomos completed his late Christmas present:
I met up with quite a few friends online from my Disney days. These friends live all around the world so it was great to see and talk to them. (Some of whom I haven't seen for 25 years!) In the picture, the people you can see are speaking from the following countries: Japan, USA, Italy, France, Germany and Norway!
Back in school tomorrow so will post again later in the week.
As Mr P has already noted, today should have been our last day before Easter! Now, at least, we can get ready for an Easter Egg feast over the next few weeks. Keep doing Joe Wicks, and then we can have more!
Have just been outside clapping the amazing people who are working hard to save lives and keep the country fed and watered during this strange time. Thanks to all.
Gethin has been helping me in the garden yesterday and today. Look who we found hiding in the wisteria leaves....
I named him Reggie and don't worry, we made sure we put him in a safe and very toad-friendly place.
I'm in school tomorrow looking after KS1 - can't wait!

Today was a bit of a Lego day for Edward and I. Here are just a couple of our many creations.
Our other major achievement today was making the first half of our new rainbow for our windows. I think the idea is to make the other half tomorrow so we have a complete rainbow.
In case you hadn’t realised, today should have been the last day of term. It feels very strange that all our plans have now completely changed and the things we were hoping to do next term are all getting mixed up. However, I am in awe of how everybody is coping and adapting to the huge change in all our lives.
Stay safe everyone.

It's Tuesday and I hope everyone has had a good day and managed to get outside for a little while.
Tomos and I did Joe this morning; some schoolwork and a lot of lego building. (Photos to follow when it's finished!)
I started some work in the garden this afternoon (with a little help from Tomos).
Gethin was brave enough to let his dad loose with the hair clippers earlier and he did quite a good job! Tomos's turn tomorrow!
Had a good day in school on Friday. We planted trees; pond dipped and found some fantastic newts; got Mrs H's new paint brushes out and did some water-colour painting and also managed a game of rounders too!
Well, the weekend was fun and I've managed to get the first coat of paint on the bench. It looks like a giant marshmallow!
As poor old George is not allowed out, we've been out walking without him. Ya Ya, my cat, decided that she would like to come with us instead!
The Plowman family are now getting into a fairly good routine. We do our Wicks Workout at 9am (although Edward is finding the Lego a little bit more interesting at the moment), then today I helped Matilda with her school work that she had been sent. Most days we are going for a walk around the fields near where we live - whilst trying to keep at least 2m away from everybody else but at the same time not appear to be rude and ignore them. The weather today was amazing so we made the most of it. We've also been keeping in touch with all our extended family by video calling aunties, uncles, nannas and grandads etc. I think we might actually be seeing more of them now than we normally do!
I hope you are all safe and well and keeping as busy and active as you can.

Well hello again!
George, the spaniel, was dropped off at the vets this morning for his cruciate ligament operation. The orthopedic surgeon, James, has just phoned to say all went well and I can pick him up later.
Back to yesterday- stayed outside as long as possible in the sunshine. Haven't quite finished painting the bench but I'll post some photos when it's done.
Thought you might like to meet two of my rather noisy neighbours.
This is Bramble (left) and Pollyanna (right). They are very friendly donkeys, especially if you've got a treat in your pocket!
Here's a pretty, view of the church next door to my house. It definitely feels like spring!
Hello Year 6. I hope you are all keeping safe and well.
Today I was in school and although it was a little strange to be there with so few people, it was great to work with lots of children from different age groups.
This morning we did a really fun activity which involved designing and making paper aeroplanes. We looked at various designs, made our own versions and then flew them in the hall. Well done to everyone who had a go. If you weren’t in school today but would like to have a go at the activity, there is now a link to it (and lots of similar ideas) on the activities page of the school website.
I didn’t get to do the Joe Wicks workout today but my family (and Mr Rix) tell me that it was a tough one. What a shame I missed it! I’ll be there tomorrow - bright and early!
Take care everybody.

This cat doesn't seem to need any exercise, whereas I've now found a new reason to look forward to weekends - 2 days off the YouTube morning PE. My legs are aching.
Hope you're all fine. Get your daily exercise!
Each week we will update our blog with activities, pictures and comments on what we have been learning!
