Good Morning Leaders.

What a high scoring game last night – I think I’ll need to make things harder!

Today, I’d like to encourage you to take part in the activities and get members of your household involved too – maths can be a multi-player game and I’m sure you will welcome the extra eyes spotting the colours for your rainbow. Many eyes make light work.


We are going to have a go at writing out own poem using Paul Cookson’s as a base. We are going to ‘magpie’ the line ‘Let no one steal your dreams…’

Today I want you to make a list or mind map of all the dreams that you have (I know that some of you have already been thinking about this). They can be as small or as big as you like e.g. getting muddy playing football with friends to living in a castle.

You could then start to think about how you want to group your ideas together to make verses for your poem. It does not have to rhyme – remember you can also use syllables, assonance and consonance to give your writing rhythm



Using your knowledge from yesterday have a go at the memory game to match the fractions, decimals and percentages.

There are lots of levels to choose from and you can even play against someone in your family if you would like, choose the number of players at the bottom of the yellow score box.

Rainbows – Art/ICT

It’s Thursday again and I’m sure many of you will be out clapping for key workers this evening. Lots of people have been painting and drawing rainbows and this has become quite a symbol in lots of windows. I’d like you to use this theme today and, when you are out on your daily exercise, take something with you to take pictures. See if you can spot all the colours of the rainbow and put them together to make a rainbow picture. Have a look at the example.

I am also going to see how many I can spot on my walk with Rolo and let’s see how many of us manage to get a complete rainbow.

Happy hunting.
