Literacy/PHSCE Zoom

Join Mrs McDonald on Zoom at 1:00pm and meet a new creature.

Please bring something to draw on and with such as a pencil and paper or whiteboard.


During the session we’ll be discussing how to look after living things.  After the zoom, can you make a poster to show how to care for living creatures. Please upload your completed posters to Evidence.Me.


If you weren't able to attend the Zoom session, before you listen to Mrs Marshall read the story - use the description below to draw the creature that's found in Bluebell Wood.

The Bog Baby read by Mrs Marshall

As you listen to the story think about these questions:

  • What would you do if you found a creature in the woods?
  • Why do you think the Bog Baby is sick?
  • How should we look after living creatures like minibeasts?

Music Zoom

Join Mrs McDonald on Zoom at 1:00pm for some musical fun. We’ve never done music over Zoom before so join us for this experimental session.

Before next week's music session. Have a go at making your own string musical instrument.


Here are some ideas to get you started:


Practise keeping a steady pulse by strumming, plucking or bowing it. And bring it along to next week's music session.


Following our musical fun, get outside and go on a minibeast hunt. 

You could hunt in your garden, yard or whilst you’re out for your daily exercise. Minibeasts hide EVERYWHERE. You might even find some in your own home. If you have a magnifying glass, you could take this with you to see more detail. You might also want to take photos to record your finds. Remember what we learnt on Monday about caring for creatures and not removing them from where they belong.



How many different minibeasts can you find? 

Make a tally chart to show the most popular.

Religious Education (RE)

Listen to the Christian parable of the Good Samaritan.

Stop the video at 2:36

What do Christian’s learn from this story? This is called a moral.

The moral of the Good Samaritan is that we should be kind to everyone.

What kind act could you do this week? Who will it be for? You family, friends, neighbours or the environment?
