Join Ant and Dec, David Walliams, and Sally from the NSPCC’s Schools Service for a special assembly. Featuring highlights from the hugely popular Speak out Stay safe programme, the assembly will help children understand what’s going on, why they may be feeling anxious or worried, and where to get help if they need it.
We know that many children are struggling with increased anxiety because of the coronavirus pandemic – whether they’re missing friends, stressed about schoolwork or concerned about their family’s safety. And for parents and carers, it can be tough to start a conversation about these worries.
This assembly will help children understand the huge changes in their lives. There will even be a Q&A session with Vicky Ford MP, Minister for Children and Families, featuring questions from children.

Good Morning P1-3! Here is your Fun Friday Challenge.
Have you ever read any Mr Men or Little Miss books by Roger Hargreaves? There are lots of different, interesting and fun characters in the series e.g. Mr Funny, Little Miss Magic and Mr Topsy Turvy.
Your challenge today is to create a new Little Miss or Mr Men character. Draw a picture of them with their name underneath. Remember to share your picture on your Learning Journal.
Have a lovely weekend and we hope that the sun shines!
Good morning P1-3! Today’s challenge is to create a boat out of tinfoil.
You will need: tinfoil, scissors, a bowl of water and pennies
1. Use scissors to carefully cut the tinfoil into 2 rectangle shapes.
2. With the first piece of foil, form a boat that can hold pennies and not sink.
3. Predict how many pennies your boat will hold.
4. Place the foil boat in the bowl of water.
5. Place 1 penny at a time in the boat. Keep adding pennies until the boat sinks. Make sure you count them as you go!
6. Use the second piece of foil to make a new boat, based on what you observed from your previous design.
7. Estimate how many pennies the new design will hold.
8. Place the new boat in water, and carefully place 1 penny at a time in the boat until it sinks.
Here we are at the middle of May already! It is time for you to become a pirate and hide some treasure. Can you choose a treasure, maybe a coin or some of your jewellery, to hide somewhere in your house or garden (but don’t tell anyone where 😉). Then, can you draw a map using a starting point and putting an X for the treasure? Ask someone in your house to use the map to try and find the treasure. Maybe they could then make a map for you to follow if they have time. Have fun mateys! We would love to see a picture of your map on your Learning Journal if you’d like to post it.
