Good morning everyone. It's Thursday today - Colonel Tom Moore's 100th birthday. Happy birthday sir!
It was great fun to see so many of you on our class Zoom and Kahoot session yesterday. Well done to April and Cooper on winning the quiz about world landmarks.
Please follow Thursday's lessons for Maths and English only through the TV channel AND by visiting the links for the day's lessons. If you are worried that you are unable to follow BBC Bitesize because you don't have a TV licence, please email me and I will provide a tutorial on using the government's Oak Academy home learning website.

Little bit of something else - HISTORY
The History of the Railways
This term, we're studying the history of the railways.
The third lesson is about the growth of Britain's railways.

Now you'll need to visit this link. It should open a file of documents. Open the powerpoint - it's the class lesson. Read through it carefully and discuss with someone at home. Also in the file of documents are several nice activities about plotting railway lines on maps and putting events on timelines. It's quite a lot to do, so spread it out over the week. Remember that 1star is easiest, 3stars are hardest. If you're not able to print-out, don't worry, just have a look through and talk about the slides and the worksheets with an adult.
Please don't worry if you don't cover everything.
How many of you have tried to make Stephenson's Rocket by junk-modelling at home?
William has made a fabulous model. You can see the pictures in the Hall of Fame. Well done - and thanks for supporting Dad!
You'll also see some videos that April has made about steam power - they're worth checking out because they help to explain how the power for these enormously heavy machines was created.
