Easter Bunny

Watch out eggs about!

If you’re searching for your Easter eggs look no further than the K6 telephone kiosk where an Easter bunny seems to have got himself into eggs-traodinary fix!


This is what Year 2 thought that he might be saying.

Help, help! Is that the Easter bunny head quarters?

Somebody help me.  I’m stuck in a phone box because it’s raining Easter eggs. I’m getting squashed in here.

Could you try to find the key to turn off the Easter egg machine?

What you’ve lost it?!

The eggs are starting to melt on my fur.  I’m going to get chocolate indigestion if I stand here much longer.

Ahh, what am I going to do?

Thank you to Year 2 for creating this lovely piece of shared writing, dressing the mannequin and designing some fantastic Easter eggs!Bunny_with_Year 2


Epiphany calling


Year 4As Epiphany approaches, the three wise men will discover the future king in a stable and present him with their gifts of gold, myrrh and frankincense. Next time you are passing the telephone box on Church Street, listen carefully as there is an urgent phone call taking place.  Melchior, one of the wise men from the East, is speaking to his camel driver to make sure everything is ready for their journey back home...


The Innkeeper

Inn Keeper

Next time you are passing the telephone box on Church Street take a careful look inside, there’s a very excited Inn Keeper on the phone. Something amazing has happened to him!

Congratulations and well done to Amy Morgan in Year 3 for the following contribution to the Village Newsletter as part of the school’s phone box project.

Thanks go to Reception class for preparing the Inn Keeper for his exciting telephone call!


The Phone Box Project

k6 KioskGreat Shelford Parish Council adopted the local K6 telephone kiosk in 2009 as part of the British Telecom "Adopt a Kiosk" programme and decided that it should be preserved as a public art installation to help raise a smile on those that pass it and to become a talking point.

It was repaired and repainted and unobtrusive locks fitted to prevent undesired use and spare parts have been purchased. The Parish Council felt that community ownership of the kiosk and involvement in the project would reduce the risk of vandalism and meet the overall objectives.

Our K6 lies on the route most village children take to school, the children, with the help of their teachers, dress the mannequin up to look like the character they have chosen. At the same time, the children practise their creative writing skills by answering questions about why this person is in the telephone kiosk. Who might he/she be phoning? Why? How might the telephone conversation go?

One of these ideas is selected to be included in the Shelford Village News which is published once a month and delivered to the residents of Great Shelford.

The character will be changed regularly. The school are delighted to have a community project that is fun at the same time as offering another creative dimension to their teaching and learning.
