Hello everyone! It’s Mrs Thompstone here and I would like to tell you about Earth Day 2021. This is a worldwide event where we come together to celebrate our wonderful Earth, and today, Thursday, 22nd April 2021, is Earth Day. Every year there is a particular theme, this year the theme is ‘Restore Our Earth’.
Our Earth is precious and it is important to make sure we look after it. Here are two video clips explaining the history of Earth Day.
I would like you all to take part in an activity based on Earth Day. Below you will find a range of different activities for you to choose from, or you may wish to come up with your own activity idea. You can take part on your own or with a family member, you will be able to share your ideas and plans, as well as develop your understanding and learning of Earth Day.
Once you have completed your activity, please take a picture and either send it to your class teacher through your class email, class dojo, or please email them direct to me at Lawley@holytrinitycepa.co.uk. The deadline for our activities is Thursday, 28th April, and everyone who enters will receive a prize!
Please do have fun, be creative and resourceful, develop your understanding of our wonderful world, and get your family members involved. Remember to stay safe and please do ask permission from a grown up before using any resources.
Build a Bug Hotel
Build a hotel made from natural resources that any creepy, crawling insect would love to call home! The image below give you some ideas- they’re a little bigger than you may create but it gives you an idea of what you can use to make it. Make a Bird Feeder
Create, build or decorate your own bird feeder that robins, blue tits, wrens or any number of garden birds would love to feast from! You could use natural resources or materials you have at home. You may want to make a single feeder or a bird feeding station!
Create a Nature Garden
Dedicate a small section of your garden to nature and the animals that visit it! Add a small area of water for bees or birds to drink from, add natural materials insects can call home or even add a box for a hedgehog.
Decorate a Bird Box
Create a lovely home for a family of birds by decorating a bird box. You may choose to build your own bird box to decorate or decorate one that is bought.
Create a Eco Poster
Pick an Eco topic that you are passionate about and create an eye-catching poster that informs people on your topic of choice. This could be using less electricity, recycling more, reducing the amount of plastic used, reducing greenhouse gas emissions or reducing deforestation for example. Whatever topic you pick, make sure your poster is really eye catching and gets your message across. You could do this on paper, card, on the computer or in any inventive way your like!
Bake Earth Cookies
Follow the receipt to create your own Earth Cookies.
Climate Change Fact File
Carry out research and create an interesting fact file on climate change. Find out what climate change is, how it is caused and what we can do to reduce this. You may wish to research Greta Thunburg for support on your fact file.
Earth Day Acrostic Poem
Create an acrostic poem based on Earth Day. You may wish to use the words such as Earth Day, World or Restore our Earth.
Let us prayer together to celebrate our wonderful Earth.
Help us to care for and love our Earth, and all of creation you have blessed us with.
Good luck everyone, I cannot wait to see the activities you have completed.
Every Wednesday in class, the children will take part in a collective worship which will be teacher led. We will be posting the PowerPoint for you to join in at home if you wish.
The Christian values for this half term are: Faith and Belief. Each week the teacher led collective worship will focus on the Christian Values, with a story from the bible and a link to the wider world. We encourage all children to take part in the discussions and come together to sing, listen to stories from the bible, pray and reflect.
The first collective worship is by Miss Hutson which has a focus on Genesis 1-2- Creation and the faith and belief that God put in humans to care for the world he created. This also links in with Earth day on the 22nd April 2021.
Please see powerpoint below for the collective worship.
Continuing our work on the Holy Week, today we are going to look at the next significant day in the Holy Week- which is Good Friday. Below is a video by the Holy Trinity Church, explaining the events of Good Friday.

Imagine you are a reporter for the Jerusalem Times, you need to write a report on the events which took place on Good Friday. Use the resources below to help you with your writing.
Unfortunately, due the announcement yesterday of a positive case of Coronavirus, we are back to online learning for the next three days. The same principles are in place as last time. The children are expected to attend all Zoom lessons (we will be having 3 each day), and submit completed work to me via Dojo or the class email each day.
Firstly, as it is Tuesday, we need to do our weekly spelling test. Our spelling test will be at9.30am- You will find the Zoom link for the spelling test below. I will be testing both my group and Miss Jones’ group.
Miss Scoltock is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
