Good Morning Unicorns!
I have just finished this book about Mount Everest.
It was a real cliff-hanger!
Today we celebrate ‘World Book Day’ we are officially ‘Off time-table today’. I shall leave a selection of activities for you below to choose from today to celebrate all things ‘books’.
Here is the timetable for today’s zoom calls, which will be as normal.
9:00am Zoom: Reflection on forgiveness. (See below) and a look at the day ahead.
12:00pm Zoom: A read of our class book ‘The London Eye Mystery’ (hopefully we shall be on Chapter 7 ‘The Wheel Turns’ by now). And maybe a sneak peek at your costumes for later today!
2:40pm Zoom ‘KS2 Assembly’: In our assembly with Mr Langley this afternoon we shall be sharing our World Book Day dress up ideas – cannot wait to see everyone!
The theme this week is forgiveness
We have spoken a lot about what it means to forgive this week. Let us take time to remember this morning that forgiveness is an essential part of unconditional love. This is the song we shall be listening to this morning ‘Love like this’ by Lauren Daigle https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7eyU9EPGWo
