If you have any worries boys and girls, remember to talk to your mum or dad. Maybe you could paint your own worry stone. I’ve added a little activity below if you wish to make a worry monster. Worry monsters read your worries and munch them up so you no longer need to worry about them! laugh

9th June -Good morning boys and girls. Today is ‘National Donald Duck Day’. When I was a child, my friends and I tried to imitate his voice-it was very difficult but we had great fun trying! Donald Duck is actually an American Pekin Duck. Today I challenge you (as part of our farm topic) to talk about the duck life cycles below. If you haven’t made anything for the ‘Bake off’ yet, why not try either of the recipes below. I’m going to try to do both before the end of the week. For the nests, I’m going to use Mars bars instead of syrup and Rice Krispies instead of Cornflakes! For the Dizzy Duckling Snack, instead of olives, I think I’ll use grapes!laugh  Have a good day. heart

8th June - Good morning boys and girls. Today is ‘World Oceans Day’. I challenge you to listen to the story of ‘Somebody Swallowed Stanley’ plus I’ve also added a link from the author of ‘Somebody Swallowed Stanley’ talking about why she decided to write the book. Enjoy. heart

7th June - Good morning boys and girls. It's Trinity Sunday today! Saint Patrick used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity. The shamrock is made up of three separate leaves that make one plant, just like the Holy Trinity with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit all making up one God. When I was training to become a teacher Sr. Margaret, a nun who taught me R.E. used a 'Twix' bar to explain the Holy Trinity. smiley I've added a link below for you to look at as well. Have a lovely Sunday everyone, whatever you decide to do, enjoy! heart

P.S. Answer to yesterday's challenge is 6! 2+1+3=6 laugh
