Week 3

Hey Caterpillars, 


I hope you are all keeping yourselves busy and safe, I am missing you all so much. I have so far discovered in this time away that I am not a very good baker, as my bread was eaten more by birds than humans. 


This weeks shout out goes to the Caterpillars who have emailed us photos. Cemre, who sent me the first piece of Caterpillar work, it was so lovely to see your smiling face. Aimie-Jay I am so impressed with your new skill of calligraphy, you are going to have to teach me when we are back at school. Chase thank you for sharing your massive smile with us all at Mill Hill. So nice to see that you are all safe and I can't wait to see what photos and videos we get sent this week. 


So please don't forget to send anything you have completed at home in, we would love to see how you are getting on.


Next week for English I'm going to ask you to do a book review so please read a book this week. 


Missing you all and can't wait to see your smiley faces again. 


Miss Hesling laugh


Caterpillars its LEGO WEEK look at the image below, then try the tasks that I have put for you. 

Picture 1

Can you answer the questions? Can you ask your own?

  • How has the helicopter crashed?
  • What do you think he should try to do next?
  • Who might be able to help in this situation?
  • What do you think you would do if you were in a similar situation?
  • Why do you think he is afraid?
  • What might he be afraid of?


Can you continue the story?

Lawrence was injured, afraid, lost and completely alone. He had been thrown viciously from the aircraft after the flock of birds had attacked the propellers.


As he laid there, listening to his racing heart, he wondered what would happen to him.


Think about how he might make it out alive?


Can you draw a picture?

Draw a picture of what Lawrence might have seen before the helicopter crashed, or you could make it out of Lego and photograph it. 


Please send in copies for me to read, or record yourself telling the stories. I’d love to see any work that you do, so please send it in to us at


Next week I am going to ask you to write a book report, so use this week to help you find, pick and read a book ready for it. 


I'm going to finish reading 'Brightstorm' by Vashti Hardy.



Aimie-Jay started us off this week by writing a letter to the class, telling us what she has been doing while at home. Can your write your own letter to the class? 



This week I would like you to try the Lego games below. If you don’t have Lego you could use anything I used sweets, which was great as I got to eat the at the end.


You can play these with an adult or sibling and see who has the most at the end, or you can challenge yourself by trying to have an odd or even amount at the end.


Warning this can get competitive, well it did when I played it this week.


Remember to have fun and laugh!


Can you come up with your own variation of the game? If so, please send in the instructions so other caterpillars can play, or just send us photos of your playing the game.

History - Ancient Romans


Before Easter, we came across the word ‘hypocaust’, which we discovered was underfloor heating in Roman buildings.


This week I would like to see if you can follow the information below and make your own Roman villa.

Please remember email a photo of your finished Roman Villas, so I can put it on the website to share your amazing work with the rest of Mill Hill.  


Last week in school Mrs Smith showed me and the children in school how to make a lava lamp, we had so much fun I wanted to share with you how to make it.

How to Make A Lava Lamp Bottle- Fun for Kids!

Use every day household ingredients to create a lava lamp effect in a plastic water bottle. It's a great lesson in both science and fun!

Indoor Activity


At the moment we can’t go out, so I wondered could Caterpillars bring a fun day out home.


I thought could Caterpillars create their own mini golf course; this can be as crazy and wacky as you like. You can draw it up on paper or you can create it and play the course with your family. I have attached some examples to help you make a start, the more you laugh the better.


Please email a photo of your finished golf course design or you playing your golf course, so I can put it on the website to share your fun memories with the rest of Mill Hill.  



Caterpillars I know how much you all enjoyed are Transport unit, when we got to build an airport using Lego. I wondered if you have Lego at home what creations could you make?


Please can you photograph them and send them in, so I can see how amazing your creations are.
