Hi everyone, Blog Monster here!Did you have a good holiday with lots of Easter eggs? My friend Shirley the chef, told me this Easter riddle. Can you solve it?

In marble halls as white as milk,

All lined with skin as soft as silk,

Within a fountain crystal clear

A golden apple does appear.

No doors are there to this stronghold;

Yet thieves break in to steal the gold.

 Riddles are great fun. Here’s one to puzzle the grown-ups:

From the beginning of eternity

To the end of time and space;

To the beginning of every end

And the end of every place.

First week back and already we are thinking hard enough to make our brains ache!  We’ve enjoyed telling each other lots of different Traditional Tales. see how many baddy characters you can think of in one minute? (The Joker doesn’t count, he’s not in a fairy story/Traditional tale!)We practised jumping in 2s, 10s and 5s in Maths. That means counting along a number-line although we have done quite a lot of jumping too, when we put on the Times Table Rap.In Science we are learning about what plants need to grow. We have set up an experiment with lots of bean seeds in jars. we think plants need to have light, water and warmth to grow best. So we want to see what happens if we take those things away. No water is easy. No light… we have shut that jar in a cupboard. No warmth was more tricky. we decided to keep the seed cold in the fridge, but to make sure it still gets some light, we will take it out every lunch hour. All the rest of the seeds are having a lovely holiday on the windowsill. My favourite is Seedric, he’s good at football; he says he shoots for England. It makes him very popular with the girl seeds: they just can’t leaf him alone.Seedric says he eats 5-a-day of fruits and vegetables, to keep himself healthy and strong for sport. I make sure I get 5-a-day. As well as cheesy socks, I’ve started to eat gloves. Five fingers a day helps you work, rest and play.

I hope you like this little video clip of some radishes growing.

On Friday, we all took home a sunflower seed to look after.Have you given your  seed a name yet? Tayla says plants grow quicker if you talk to them. What do you think? Remember, there will be a small prize for the tallest sunflower, and another prize for the best Sunflower Diary. I’m looking forward to reading them all!Mrs. Newbould says, ” Don’t forget your other diary: about what you like to do with your time out of school.”   Have a super weekend,

Furry hugs,

The Blog Monster.
