Good Morning Leaders

I hope you have all had a relaxing break and have been able to enjoy some of the lovely weather we have been having.  Some of you may have hoped we were back at school and some of you might be glad to get some more time at home, but I am sure we are all missing the company of our friends and classmates – I know that I am.

Now that Easter is over, I will be posting daily challenges for you to complete.  If you are on Tapestry, you can upload anything that you would like to share with me and, if you are not using Tapestry, you can still send anything you would like to share by e-mail.


Have you ever looked at a door and wondered what was on the other side?  In the hands or a writer, a door represents a world of possibility.

The world is in lockdown, shut behind doors for our own safety and the safety of everyone else. Closed schools, closed shops and temporarily closed for some of the things we take for granted, like playing in the park with our friends.

I’d like you to make a list of all the things that you miss.  You may like to think about some of the following categories: – seeing family – seeing friends – day to day things – playing sports – exploring your interests – places you love to visit.

We will return to this list over the week.


This week we are going to think about line graphs.  When would we use a line graph rather than a different type?  What information does it show us?

I would like you to draw and add to a line graph over the course of the week, as you collect the data to record.  Your line graph is going to show 3 sets of data (which will show in 3 different lines) showing the difference in temperature over the course of the day.

Today, you will need to choose 3 different times of the day, spread throughout the day if possible, and record the temperature.  This can be either done using a thermometer or, you will find that lots of devices will give you the current temperature, you can record using one of these too.  Remember to keep this information safe until you have plotted it on your graph.

Growing Vegetables

As the weather has been nice, I have spent some time in my garden and thought about clearing the weeds to plant some vegetables.  I’d like us all to think about growing something this week.  If you do not have a garden or seeds to plant do not worry.  It is amazing what you can re-grow from the peelings/waste that you would normally throw away.  Have a look at the link and see if you can choose one of the things to have a go at re-growing.  It would be great to share the fruits of your labour through a picture diary of your vegetables – let’s find out which are the quickest and easiest to re-grow!
