Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister announced strict new rules for everybody to help keep us safe as we beat the Coronavirus. He said EVERYBODY must do their bit to help. If we all do our bit then we will beat it.

There are lots of stories that share the message about what a huge difference people can make to things if they all work together and all do their bit. Below is one of my favourite ones: 'Stone Soup'. Sit somewhere quiet, relax and click below to hear the story. Think about the message the story gives and how it links to the news story. Maybe you can share your thoughts with a grown-up?
There is a trend sweeping the country right now: children everywhere are putting up pictures of rainbows in their windows to show we are all in this together and to spread hope. Click below to read about it on the BBC website.


Can you create a picture of a rainbow....any way you display in a window? Do you know what colours are in a rainbow and in what order? Perhaps you had better find out enlightened. Could you send me a photo of it?


You can make their very own rainbow with light, a glass of water, and a piece of paper! Hopefully it's sunny today and you can try this or you can use a torch. If you succeed I would love to see a photo.

What You Need:
A glass of water
A sheet of white paper
A sunny day or a torch




  • Fill the glass almost to the top with water.
  • If you are using sunlight, find a window where the sun is shining in and place the glass so that it is half on and half off the edge of a low table (BE VERY CAREFUL), and so that the sun shines directly through the water, onto a sheet of white paper on the floor.
  • Adjust the paper and the glass until a rainbow forms on the paper.
  • If you are using a torch, place the glass of water on the white piece of paper in a dark room, and move the torch around until you see a rainbow on the piece of paper


Light is made up of many colours, and when it passes through water, it is broken up into the other colours seen in a rainbow.

Sometime before you go to bed find 10-15 minutes to read a book...somewhere quiet. Record it in your orange Reading Diary.
