The pictures, videos and emails keep coming and I LOVE to see them!
I thought I would share with you some of the excellent PE that you are all doing whilst on lockdown!
Our Maths session will use a video to teach us and this will ask you to pause from time to time to answer questions. The questions are on a worksheet that you can view on your screen. Answer the questions in your Exercise Book at the Maths end.
You will use the worksheet and the video together.

Today we are going to write a newspaper report.
Click below to learn how to write a newspaper report.
I would like you to:
I would like you to write a newspaper article about The Moon Landing
What might the newspaper headline have been and what would the article have said in 1969?
You can find a video below with all the information you need for your article...click to view it.
Before you start writing, make sure you can answer the 5 Ws.
Make sure you include the features you learnt about in the lesson.
With all our Science work about the planets, the Solar System, the Moon and the Sun it would be worth spending a little time understanding how the way the Earth moves in Space affects our life here on Earth.
It is all to do with the way the Earth moves in Space!
Watch the film below to help you understand:
In school we might investigate how sunlight falls on the Earth like this:
We would shine a torch on the Earth in a dark room. We would see that it is brighter (hotter) on the equator around the middle...and dimmer/colder on the Poles. We would see how night and day happens as the Earth spins.
If you have a torch or a lamp and a ball you could try this at home in a dark place.
I know that so many of you have been clapping each Thursday for our key workers and are displaying Rainbows for the NHS. Here is a photo of Georgia's window she sent me on Friday:
I know too that lots of you have made donations or undertaken challenges to raise money for charities and the NHS at this time. Lewis TS shared some wonderful fund raising he did with me and Lois shared a very thoughtful letter she had written to the NHS.
I am sure you have heard about Captain Tom Moore - a 99 year old man who set out to raise £1000 for the NHS by walking laps in his garden - which was a difficult challenge at his age. He wanted to walk 100 laps over a few weeks to raise £1000 before he was 100 years old.
Well....everybody was inspired by his story. So many people wanted to sponsor him and now, as a result he has walked the 100 laps and so far raised an unbelievable £29,000,000 (29 million pounds!)

Well Captain Tom Moore turns 100 years old on Thursday 30th April (this Thursday).
Wouldn't it be nice to make him, and send him, a birthday card to say thank you and Happy 100th birthday?
Could you make him a card, using your wonderfully creative skills, include a nice message and then post it to him?
