Following our theme of pirates. Could you survive on an island if you were abandoned on a desert island?

Watch the video, read the information sheet and then write (using full sentences) how to survive on an island.

During this awful time the nation is experiencing there have been many acts of kindness. One example is BMT have given bath products (gift wrapped) to St.George's Hospital.

Questions to discuss:

Are there any acts of kindness you have heard of in the news?

Have you performed any acts of kindness? 

What stories about Jesus can you think of where Jesus was kind and he was teaching us how to live?

International Science Museum Day

International Museum Day is an annual event held either on or around 18 May. It’s run by the International Council of Museums (ICOM), and although it only began officially in 1977, it can be traced back to 1951 in a meeting called Crusade for Museums. Why not take a tour of a museum or two. You could write a visitors' review or design an advert.

Famous museums: 

  • British Museum, London 
  • Guggenheim Museum, New York 
  • Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam 
  • Museo Larco, Lima 
  • The Acropolis Museum, Athens

PE - Drop the potato

Potato Drop: The Potato Drop is a great game because it is good ol’ silly fun. All participants place a potato between their knees and race to a finish line where they have to drop it into a designated bowl or bucket. If the potato is dropped, or if hands touch it, they have to go back to the start and try again. (editor’s note: this is actually a great party game for big groups of kids – split them up into 2 teams and relay race to see which one can get all their potatoes into the bucket first!)

Maths - volume

Story writing. The story has been started. Can you think what might happen? Complete the plan with your ideas.
