Here are some suggested activities for week beginning 18th May. Parents, please feel free to email me and let me know how your children are getting on with their learning. Please also email me if you have any questions.
This week we are going to learn about the super heroes that keep us safe while we are at the seaside. Mrs Blackmore enjoyed her walk to Horton lifeboat station where she interviewed one of the life boat crew from a safe distance of course!
1. Write/Draw a letter or make a thank you card.
Can you draw or write a thank you letter or card to Mr Grove at RNLI to say thank you. You might like to tell him which part of his interview you enjoyed the most. What did you find interesting? Have you got another question for him? If you take a photo of your letter or card we will email them all to Mr Grove.
2. Floating and Sinking
Can you help Fflic relax in the pool by making him a boat he can float in? What materials could you use? Will it still float if you put one of your teddies in it?

The artist Banksy painted this image and it hangs in a hospital entrance. Look at the picture and have a think about this question - Why are Spiderman and Batman in the bin?
Talk to your family about your opinions and ask them the same question.
