Friday 10th July 2020

Good morning, today we will be doing:

English – Reading Lesson: Daily Book Club Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren

Maths – Challenge of the week

Arts Week – Ten pieces takeover

Your link is here:

Our challenge for you today is to ‘fill someone’s bucket full of kindness’! Watch this video to learn how to fill someone’s bucket…. It’s important to be a bucket filler simply because it makes others feel good. People feel bad when their buckets are empty. However, a full bucket brings a lot of joy! A bucket filler is someone who uses acts of kindness and love to make another person feel better. This could be anything! A bucket filler could say a kind word to someone who looks sad or they could help a friend in need. Being a bucket filler can be as simple as smiling at someone!

Send us a photograph of your bucket filling ideas for the school website…
