Hello from myself and the KMRC team! I hope you get to enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend this weekend despite every weekend feeling rather similar at the moment! We have started a little tradition of 'Puzzle Sunday' in our house. We set ourselves the task of starting and completing a puzzle in a day - adding a piece here and there between meal times/play time/outdoor fun etc.! Last weeks 1000 piece puzzle took us up until 10:30pm, but we did it and it feltlike a massive accomplishment! The majority of the puzzles (supplied by my parents) seem to have a similar theme - trains!The boys keep asking if the puzzle making is part of mummy's job...

Things You Didn't Know You Didn't Know (or maybe you did?!)
I thought this was very apt with all the lovely warm weather we have been having. I don't know about you but we have been enjoying a fair few ice creams in this house recently - thanks mum for the endless supply! Did you know... Sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia is the scientific term for brain freeze. Nothing like the cold hitting your trigeminal nerve!
I got sent a great little joke from a Mr Russell to tell my 6 year old. What should you do if your nose goes on strike? Picket! I had to explain a little about what a strike is (home learning and all!) but any joke to do with noses is always a winner!
James' joke of the week... Why did the burglar take a shower? He wanted to make a clean getaway!
Keep keeping safe, and smiling!
Oll an gwella,
Hayley (who should be relaxing by the pool with a jug of cocktail in Lanzarote today... nevermind!)
