"Use your God-given gifts to serve others." 1 Peter 4: 10


This week it is half-term. You have worked realy hard in some tricky situations this half-term and there is no home learning this week. There are some activities on this page you could try if you would like to (some of them are both fun and delicious!)


1) Over half term, it is Shrove Tuesday, also known as Pancake Day.


Shrove Tuesday is a Christian festival celebrated in many countries across the globe. It falls on the Tuesday before the beginning of Lent – a period of around six weeks leading up to Easter. Traditionally during Lent, Christians would give up rich, tasty foods such as butter, eggs, sugar and fat (some Christians continue to do so, in fact). Shrove Tuesday was the last chance to eat them – and what better way to do so than with a delicious pancake!


Here is a link to a recipe for pancakes:


2) The Six Nations Rugby Tournament has recently started. England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Italy and France all compete against each other. Over half term, you could watch a couple of games or you could research and make a poster about one of the countries (What is the capital city? Which continent is it in? What language do they speak? Population? Climate?)


3) If you can go for a walk around the park, can you collect 5 different types of leaf? Use google to try and find out what type of tree each leaf belongs to based on it's characteristics (what it looks like).


4) Play TT Rockstars!


5) Make a board game for your family to play. It could be simple times tables or something more complex.


6) Teach yourself a new skill, this could be learning to cook something (with a grown up) or even teaching yourself to draw new things. Try these videos to help


Above all else, get out as much as you can and spend time with your family. We will see you hopefully happy and refreshed on Monday 22nd for your new registration times of 9am.
