Tuesday 12th May
Hope you all had a lovely Monday. Did any of you take part in ‘Make it Monday’?
Today’s theme for Tuesday is: ‘Tasty Tuesday’.
Today we would like you to help with one of your family meals it could be lunch or dinner. May be you could make the sandwiches for lunch or help prepare food you’re having for your evening meal such as peeling and chopping vegetables. Or you could ask to bake something – this could be for the baking competition for VE Day.
As many of us are spending more and more time online at home, it is important for us all to remember that we must keep safe. If we are messaging our friends, we must only send messages that are kind to one another and we shouldn’t be saying anything to anyone that we wouldn’t say to them in person. Remember, any comments you make online do not go away and just because we are using a screen should not be an excuse for being braver and saying comments that are unkind. Treat each other how you would wish to be treated and don’t forget that if you receive anything that makes you upset or uncomfortable then tell an adult straight away. A useful link for parents has been added in the ‘Keeping Safe Online’ sub-page, talk to your parents about this and suggest they look at the advice given to help support you.
Don’t forget the NHS competition – there is a link for this in our Resources and Web Links section.
VE Baking Competition – deadline is Wednesday 13th May. Please send in your photo entries. All information is in last week’s resources
Remember yesterday I mentioned the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale. Today is International Nurses Day which is always held on Florence’s birthday and tonight we are all being encouraged to ‘Shine a Light’ in one of our windows at 8.30pm to mark this special event. Please join in to show our thoughts for all those in the nursing profession who are working to care for others during this difficult time.
Why not find out more about Florence Nightingale and her legacy?
Have a good day!
Mrs Ashby and Miss Barrett

VOLCANOES AND EARTHQUAKES
Yesterday I set you the task of choosing three activities from the list below for Monday and Tuesday – please continue with this today. I have included all the information from yesterday.
To understand how Volcanoes and earthquakes occur we need to find out about tectonic plates first. Read through the ‘tectonic plates presentation’ found in our resources section. Then select three tasks from the following suggested activities to complete as your learning follow up – all resources are in our ‘Resources and Web Links’ section
- Make a list of 10 things you have learned about tectonic plates – you could create a quiz for your family using this information
- Present your learning on an information poster – include images
- Either, print the jigsaw and cut out the pieces and put back together or have a go at drawing your own (bit of a challenge but it is possible!)
- Continental drift timeline activity (if you can print, but the activity can be completed without this) – in your book draw out a timeline using the suggested format on page 2 of the document then sketch the continental drift changes through time.
- Research Alfred Wegener and his important theories about the Earth
> Remember to build in some quiet time, creative time and outdoor time! Why not try the nature activity or a lego challenge?
Have a good day!
