Hey all you cool cats and kittens,
Hope you and your family are doing well. I’ve really enjoyed seeing all your wonderful work through Purple Mash, TTRS and even emails. So, well done and please keep it up! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Remember this Friday is a Bank Holiday. So, if you've not had enough days off already, you're getting another one to stay inside and relax. (YAY!) ☀️
Recently, you may have been getting a little bored and emotions may be running high. But it’s important that now -more than ever- you stay inside and follow government guidelines. It’ll be worth it in the end. (I promise 🌈 )
Missing you all dearly.

P.S. Can you tell I recently worked out how to put emojis on the blog? 😌 #delighted

NCETM activity (Thursday)
Do the activity below based on your maths group.
Yellow, Orange, Green and Red:
A triangle has been drawn carefully. You are told that the biggest angle is 20° larger than the second biggest angle and 40° larger than the smallest angle. Work out how big each angle is.
Watch the videos below and enjoy how wonderful God’s earth is. They should make you smile. 🌍
Solve this riddle: A word I know, six letters it contains, remove one letter and 12 remains, what is it?
Your (not so) secret challenge this week.
Decorate an area/window in your home where strangers/public can see that supports the NHS and key workers. You could leave letters of encouragement on people’s cars, give out compliments to key workers, a friendly smile etc.
Most of us get caught up in our own lives and the daily busyness that we put on ourselves, forgetting that the simplest of things can have the most significant impact on someone else. ⛈ ☔️ ☀️ 🌈
Below are some lovely displays of community and togetherness that I've encountered in the last few weeks...
I would love to see what you create - send pictures of your work with my name in the subject field to:
What question can you never answer yes to? ''Are you asleep yet?''
Some useful links...
Don't stress about schoolwork. In June, we will get your children back on track. I am a teacher and that's my superpower. So right now I need you to share your calm, strength and laughter. No children are ahead. No children are behind. Your children are exactly where they need to be (at home in lockdown!)

It will all be alright in the end, if it's not alright, it's not the end x
