Rainbow Fish craft.

It's great to see Caleb out on his vintage tractor with his Daddy, nice day for a spin! Caleb has also been very creative with his lego, a fab house complete with dining area on the top! Love it Caleb!

Harry has been very busy making rainbows to say thank you to the NHS and he and Grace made some fabulous bunting to commemorate VE Day. He also made the biggest Rainbow fish I've ever seen! Harry has also been having fun in the sun with some of his cousins.

Jenson has learnt to ride his bike without stablisers! Well done Jenson, this is fantastic!

Thomas and Chloe have made a rainbow using their coloured tops!

Emily made a beautiful rainbow tree out of lego!

Joanna has sent us some rainbow jokes!

Matthew thought he would make his own Balmoral show grounds. He has included his milking parlour, judging arena and machinery sales.

Emily made a beautiful Rainbow Fish. I think Emily could be a book illustrator!

Fifteens by Emily! Delicious!

Thomas is very busy getting ready for the show! You are learning so many skills Thomas- well done!

Joanna has been working on her Balmoral Show entry in the sewing and craft section! She helped to pin the pattern and did all the sewing to create this beautiful mermaid! That's a winner for sure!

Jessica had fun setting up her show today, she had a tea tent and won first place for her massey tractor. She also wants to enter the bird house she made. And think it would win another red rosette!

Thomas has set up his Claas machinery stand and I think he has a buyer, I see a cheque book and a big smile!

Jenson has been awarded his Gold Certificate on Study Ladder! A huge well done Jenson!

Jack has been so busy this week with Annie and Sam! He has been working hard on his school work but has also been checking the quality of the silage mowed down and showing off his tractors at 'Balmoral'! They built a den with their toys, walked their Daily Mile around the garden and carried out the skittle experiment and watched a rainbow appear! Phew! What a busy time, I'm sure Mum is tired too!

Victoria, Matthew and Selina made this delicious chocolate cake and decorated it for the NHS- I think it would definately be a show stopper in the cake tent!

Emily and Lauren are putting in lots of practice for Sports Day! Watch out everyone, they have the egg and spoon race perfected!

I wonder would these eggs win any awards in the poultry tent?

Do you think my rooster and hens would win any prizes?

A Victoria Sandwich Cake for the WI Tent!

Lois has been showjumping at Balmoral and won first prize! She has also been helping Dad on the farm with the silage.

Amelia has been watching a beautiful sunset, she noticed all the colours of the rainbow in the sunset and decided to recreate it with her amazing painting! You are a real artist Amelia!

So I didn't want to be outdone by Mrs McKee! I don't have any hens and I didn't bake a delicious cake but I thought these orchids might win a prize in the Horticulture section!

Harry carried out our skittles experiment, look at all those colours! I wonder what they tasted like without the colour? Harry also recreated Balmoral Show with his toys, great job Harry!
