Tuesday 19th May
We have seen some lovely creative activities today; I have chosen some as Photo of the Day. make sure you look at Share the Kindness too so you can see what Francesca has made. I have been impressed with the videos that we have seen of some of you trying hopscotch . . . even though it is difficult, you are tying again and again . . . soon you will all be brilliant at it! Some of you have told us that you have been practising songs in different languages; we can't wait to see videos of you singing them!
The National Marine Aquarium
On today's Virtual Educational Visits page we are visiting the National Marine Aquarium, in Plymouth. You may like to visit, so here is what I have written about it:
Did you know that starfish can regrow their limbs? Today we are visiting the National Marine Aquarium, in Plymouth; the UK's largest aquarium. Whilst the aquarium is closed, they have been holding weekly Aquarium Live sessions each Wednesday, on their Facebook page, from 1.00 to 1.30pm. This week is Meet a Marine Biologist and next week is Let's Talk Sharks! The web-site includes fantastic videos of the Rockpool Feed, the Shark and Turtle Feed and the Great Barrier Reef Feed. There is also Aquarium Relax, where you can watch the fish accompanied by calming music. A different video is uploaded each week following the Aquarium's research into the therapeutic qualities of visiting and looking at aquariums. If you would like to visit the National Marine Aquarium in the future, there is an explore section showing animals to look out for and some interesting facts about them.
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. There are links in the new People and Communities section to help you.
We would like you to send us, via the ILD, a short video of you singing the song you have chosen! We will then post your lovely videos on our blog each evening this week.

We know that lots of you are showing amazing kindness and community spirit at the moment. Please let us know what you have been doing and we will share it on our blog. For example, have you written a note to a neighbour who is on their own? Have you sent someone some rainbow post? Please let us know, it warms our hearts!
