Thank you for all the votes cast in the Curlews art challenge – if you haven’t had your say, you have until 6pm this evening to choose your top 3 images. All will be revealed.

Your parents should have received (quite a long) letter from Miss Brown yesterday with details about the possible return to school on June 1st. As you probably know, this date is still dependent on the government saying that the next phase of the easing of the lockdown can take place – it is not a decision that the school makes itself. There should also have been a link to an online survey to complete so we can gauge numbers and adapt our plans accordingly – please check with your parents/carers that this has been submitted.

Mr Simmons’ Joke of the Day

So the other day I got into a fight with 1,3,5,7 and 9. The odds were against me.


We follow up yesterday’s session with Gareth Metcalfe with some more examples of those types of problems where a picture can be really helpful – especially if they are lined up in a meaningful way.

Then try the activities on this sheet:


A reminder, today, about the correct use of punctuation and paragraphs. I remember Sky came up with a really good sentence about zombies (I think) where the comma made all the difference – can anyone remember her sentence? Let me know in the comments.

Remember that you can also listen along to every morning at 9:30.


Remember to keep on reading for at least 30 minutes each day. You can get more ideas and suggestions of reading material from the Reading@Home section above.


Join in with a PE Session with Joe Wicks or maybe you would like to set up your own fitness circuit around the house/garden – if you come up with some good exercises, let us know!


What lies below the surface of the ocean? How are whales adapted to allow them to travel down enormous distances? The answers are contained in the next two ORCA lessons.

Using the information from the videos you may like to draw a labelled picture, make a model of the sea bed or carry out some more research to find out about other animals that live in the depths of the ocean.
