Thursday 14th May
You have all had another busy day! We're very pleased that you are all trying so hard to make sure that you do your Speed Sounds and spellings every day, it really is making a huge difference to your reading and writing. We have seen some fantastic writing during the last few weeks. If you look in the Share the Kindness section, you will see a card that Jack has written in for his friend and Josh has written a special thank you letter. I think they have both been using their Fred Fingers really well.
Home PE Blast Off
We have a new activity in the Get Moving! section. It's called Blast Off and it is a throwing and catching game. It is played in pairs but you can also play it in teams with other pairs. It looks fun!
Getting ready for next week’s learning . . .
To help our learning around respecting and learning about different people and cultures we would like to invite you to learn a song in another language. We will be providing learning around 5 different cultures, next week, with song links, so don’t worry!
We would like you to send us, via the ILD, a short video of you singing the song you have chosen! We will then start to post your lovely videos on our blog each evening next week.
As you may have already seen, I shared information linked to Eurovision on my Virtual Visits page. If you haven’t seen it, here it, here is a shortened version of it . . .
Like Marmite, Eurovision is a love or hate experience. So this visit is for fans of Eurovision . . . or perhaps the kitchen disco!
As Eurovision has obviously been cancelled, on Saturday 16th May (when the final should have taken place), the BBC have organised a night of Eurovision-themed programmes; so organise some Eurovision themed food and treats, some outfits and enjoy!
BBC One 6.30pm
Eurovision: Come Together
This will be a great show for the whole family to take part in and enjoy.
'The British public will get the opportunity to take part in a live online vote to choose their all-time favourite Eurovision song from the past 64 years. This eclectic shortlist of songs have been selected by a panel of Eurovision experts and super-fans including Radio 2’s Ken Bruce, Eurovision semi-final commentators Rylan Clark-Neal and Scott Mills, former UK Eurovision acts SuRie and Nicki French, and uber-fans Mel Giedroyc and Radio 1’s Adele Roberts.
Whilst viewers vote for their favourite songs, Graham chats to James Newman, who was due to represent the UK in Rotterdam this year. There are previews of some of the other most talked about acts who were due to take to the stage this year, and Eurovision fans and some former Eurovision faces recreate Eurovision classics in their homes. Former UK Eurovision act Sonia even takes on the Epic Sax Guy solo that became so infamous after the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest.
At the end of the show Graham will reveal the song that UK viewers have chosen to crown as the winner of Eurovision: Come Together.'
Eurovision: Europe Shine a Light
'Eurovision: Europe Shine a Light honours all 41 songs that would have competed in the 2020 contest, but in a non-competitive format, as well as providing plenty of surprises for fans and viewers at home.
Just like the contest itself, the live show will be simultaneously broadcast across Europe and beyond . . .'
