Hi Angel,

We all loved reading your letters, and finding out about you. Your dog, Kimbo, sounds great, but sadly I (Lottie) don’t have any pets, Anwen has a cat called Chloe.

Our favourite television programme is Wolfblood. It’s about people turning into wolves, but it’s not actually that scary! We like programmes with action in them. What kind of programmes do you like?

We are a small school, so a lot of us are friends. We like to go swimming together, have sleepovers and go shopping!

Love Lottie and Anwen x


‘World Book Day’ Book review – Handa’s Surprise

On the 5th of March 2015 West Bretton School had their ‘World Book Day’. We had four books, one for each class. In foundation stage they read ‘The Tiger Child’ (India), in Key Stage 1 they read ‘Handa’s Surprise’ (Africa, my favourite), in Class 3 they read ‘The Queen’s Knickers’ (Great Britain’ and finally in Class 4 they read ‘The Magic Paintbrush’ (China). As you can tell the books were from different countries and cultures.



As I previously said my favourite book was ‘Handa’s Surprise’. I thought it was quite a funny story because she was completely oblivious to the animals taking her food. Also at the end she had no fruit for her friend, until luckily the goat knocked tangerines out of a tree into her basket. They were her friends favourite fruit.

‘World Book Day’ Book review – The Magic Paintbrush

At West Bretton we had our ‘World Book Day’ and it was awesome.

We read four books and they were: ‘The Queen’s Knickers’, ‘The Magic Paintbrush’, ‘Handa’s Surprise’ and ‘The Tiger Child’. My favourite book was ‘The Magic Paintbrush’ by Julia Donaldson.

51TIpIQ7q+L‘The Magic Paintbrush’ was my favourite because there was action in the story and it made me feel tense wondering ‘What’s going to happen!?’.

The activities were good because we were able to try Chinese food like prawn crackers, rice, noodles and sweet chilli sauce.  We made a dragon and practised writing our name in Chinese.

‘World Book Day’ Review – The Queens Knickers

Yesterday it was ‘World Book Day’ and we looked at four books in each of our four classes. In Year 5/6 we did ‘The Magic Paintbrush’ by Julia Donaldson, in Year 3/4 we did ‘The Queen’s Knickers’ by Nicholas Allan, in Year 1/2 we did ‘Handa’s Surprise” by Eileen Browne and last but not least in foundation stage we had ‘The Tiger Child’ by Joanne Trougton. My favourite was “The Queen’s Knickers’ because…


‘The Queen’s Knickers’ was really funny because the Queen had different knickers for every occasion! Every class that I went to had four or five activities but I thought that the activities for this book were the best. In Class 3 one of the activities was lunch with the Queen, where we had ham, cheese and jam sandwiches, a cup of tea and after our sandwich – a bun! We also decorated some knickers, made parachute and sailboat knickers, made crowns and found out information about the Queen’s family on the iPads.

‘World Book Day’ Book review- The Tiger Child

On the 5th of March, it was our World Book Day, where we look at different books and do activities based on them. This year we focused on multicultural books. We also got to dress up as book characters and it was fun to see what people had come as. This year we did four multicultural books, my favourite was ‘The Tiger Child’.


In ‘The Tiger Child’. a tiger sends his nephew out to get fire, but the nephew forgets what his uncle has asked for. He goes to lots of different houses, trying lots of different things, but still he cant remember what he was looking for. At the end, he remembers – it was fire! However by then, he was so used to people that he had turned in to a cat! That was my favourite part!

The activities we did were inspired by this book, because this book was from India, we tried some spices. We made tiger masks and a cushion, like the one that the tiger laid on. Also we painted a big tiger, and collaged it too! I would recommend the book, 5 stars! It was really fun!

If i were the Prime Minister I would…

After reading the book ‘The Queen’s Knickers’ by Nicholas Allan on ‘World Book Day’ Class 3 were challenged to put themselves in David Cameron’s shoes.


Year 3/4 did a fantastic job of demonstrating their British values by completing the sentence: ‘If I were the Prime Minister I would…’. 

“If I were the Prime Minister I would make sure that people stop killing endangered animals.” Georgina

“If I were the Prime Minister I would make smoking illegal. I would also make keeping wild animals illegal.” Evie

“If I were the Prime Minister I would help make  people, animals and the Earth safer.” Oscar

“If I were the Prime Minister I would help save the environment and help save lives. I would bring all stray animals inside.” Oliver G

“If I were the Prime Minister I would help animals if they were in danger and give more to the poor.” Amelie

“If I were the Prime Minister I would give money to the poor and give them more food.” Wilf

“If I were the Prime Minister I would help people who are on the streets, give them some money and make everything safe.” Lucy

“If I were the Prime Minister I would help the poor people who don’t have any money and help wild animals.” Madeleine

“If I were the Prime Minister I would give poor people nice houses.” Iona

“If I were the Prime Minister I would ask the rich to help the poor.” Esther

Class 4 received some replies from Guanajuato, Mexico…


Hello Class 4! Long time no speak! We have been busy replying to the letters that you sent us a while ago!

Angel is a student at the university of Guanajuanto and he decided to write a reply to all of your letters!

Here are his replies along with some nice photos of him and his dog:

Hello little Freya!!

My name is Angel and I am a university student. I have a dog and his name is Kimbo. He is very playful and loves to wander around.I also have a small parrot and his name is Pedro, he likes to eat a lot and whistle. He is generally grumpy but he cheers up when I feed him and he scratches my finger with his beak. It´s fun to pet him.

Freya, why do you have so many horses? Do you like them a lot?

I look forward to hearing from you Freya!

Hey Oliver!!!

I´m Angel. What you wrote was very interesting and I liked it. I am also a student like you but I am in university. I read on your blog that in England it snows, the truth is that here in Guanajuato we have never felt a snow blizzard and so I would like to make a snowman like you have. Video games are also very popular here but I prefer playing basketball and walking my dog. His name is Kimbo and believe me- he is VERY playful. My favourite food is pizza- it´s the best! But you cant eat pizza all the time- fruit and vegetables are important too….remind Bailey and Freya of this too! What is your favourite video game Oliver? Do you have any pets?

Hope to hear from you Oliver,

Your friend Angel.

Hey there Bailey!

My name is Angel. Your questions are very good and I hope to answer them well. After school I take a bus to go home and I read on the bus. When I get home I sit down to eat with my family and then I do my homework to improve my studies. In my free time I like to walk my dog, play basketball and listen to music. On weekends I like to watch films if I finish my school work. My favourite food is pizza…but there is also something better than pizza…do you know what it is? Ask your friend Oliver! He knows!

Do you like to play out? How many friends do you have? And do you like the sea?

Hope to hear from you my friend,

Take care!

Hello Ed!

I am Angel Missael and I am reading on your blog that your cat is called Doris and I remembered the film called Finding Nemo because in Spanish we translate ´Dori´ the fish to ´Doris´ the fish. I have a dog called Kimbo and the photo above is of when he was a puppy. He is now two years old. The other photo is when we climbed to a very high place to be still and quiet for a while. What is your favourite sport Ed? Have you ever tried Mexican food? What is your favourite, if so?

Well, take care Ed and try hard at school. I bet you are very smart my friend and remember to never stop smiling!

Hope to hear from you soon,

Okay, little friend, I am a student of the university in Guanajuato. You know, it is a very nice place it´s just that it never snows here. I want to make a snow fort too! Will you help me? I have never seen snow or built a snow man.

I have some questions for you:

Do you have a pet?

What is your favourite television programme?

Do you have many friends?

Hope to hear from you soon!!
