Miss Beer has set you all a couple of challenges. She would like you all to get creative and to think outside of the box - think of something original and different!
Design and create an outfit fit for the Mad Hatter's tea party. She would like you to first plan your outfit on paper then using old, recycled clothing she would like you to make your outfit using your D&T skills. You may need some help with this from your grown-ups.
Create a menu of the different foods that you would serve at the tea party. You are only allowed to serve healthy foods so get creative! Think about the different types of sandwiches, cakes and finger foods you could make. Then have a go at making some of your creations.
Design a tea service that you will use at the tea party. You will need think about what you will pour the drinks from, what you will drink out of and what you will serve the food on.
Please remember to ask you grown-ups for help where and when help is needed; ask them to take photographs of your outfits and of your tea parties.
Remember to post them all on Twitter @Meynellschool so that Miss Beer, Mr Jones and myself can all see your fabulous outfits and can join in with your tea parties.

They include water safety worksheets from the Swimming Teachers Association; wordsearches created by one of the teams; videos of some swimming skills that you can practice in your own home, and a link to Swim England’s home-school activity sheets.

We hope you are all keeping safe and well! It has been lovely talking to you, sharing what we have all been doing, we are missing you all! Please post any work or anything exciting that you have done on Twitter @Meynellschool so that we can see it too.
What beautiful weather we are having! Please remember if you are playing out in this lovely, hot sunshine to put sun lotion on; wear a sunhat; to stay in the shade as much as possible and to drink plenty of water.

On this day in 330 AD Constantinople became the Capital City of the Roman Empire. It seems like a long time ago that we studied the Romans doesn’t it? How many years ago was 330 AD?
We’d like to try some of these activities.
Try the activities on the getset4pe website! There's lots of fun games to try to stay fit, healthy and happy!
I saw these amazing photographs on the BBC website. I definitely want to visit there now! Can you write descriptions of the settings? Think about the different senses (smell, sound, sight etc...) You could try to use similes to compare and describe such as 'As shimmery as a ...'
You could tweet your work to the Meynell Twitter account @MeynellPrimary. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/in-pictures-52384143
Each day, whilst I have been off school, I have taken my dog on longs walks around the area that I live. During my walks I have walked down streets around my house and through parks and grassed areas and the one consistent thing that I have noticed on all of my walks are the birds. I have seen lots of different birds: Magpies, Blackbirds, Sparrows, Crows and many other types. Their songs are beautiful and each one is different.
I am setting you all a couple of challenges to do based on the birds that live in your local area.
I have put a couple of links below to help you. The RSPB website is a brilliant resource for you to use. You could also ask your grown up to help you search the internet for more websites to help you.
Remember to share your bird feeder and fact files with us all on Twitter @MeynellSchool. I will be looking out for them.
Love Mrs Holmes
We hope you are all keeping safe and well. We hope that you have all been keeping busy and active; looking after yourselves and each other and have been doing lots of fun things.
Mr Jones, Miss Beer and myself are all keeping busy in lots of different ways: such as taking part in daily keep fit activities; reading lots of different books; helping out in the house - keeping it clean and tidy; working in the gardening - planting plants and seeds, weeding etc and cooking food and baking cakes.
Let us know some of the fun things that you have been involved in, drop us a message on Twitter @MeynellSchool
Love Mrs Holmes, Mr Jones and Miss Beer
Listen carefully to the story and look closely at the different pictures.
We would like you to go on a Listening Walk. You can go on one whilst walking your dog with your grown-up; getting your daily exercise outside; when you are in your garden or even in your house.

Daylight saving time is on Sunday 29th March. We would like you to research what daylight saving time is and write an explanation text about it.
We would like you to explain:
Remember to include all the features of an explanation text.
Share your explanation texts with a member of your family and tweet them so we can share them with you too!
We would like you to create a keep fit routine to 'Dance Monkey'. See how many sets of moves you can get in for example: lunges, waist swivels, arm stretches, star jumps etc. Teach someone your routine and double the fun!
Remember to warm up first!
In your writing think about including the senses: what can you see, hear, smell, taste, touch. Remember to include all the descriptive techniques that you have been learning: expanded noun phrases, fronted adverbials, adverbial phrases, prepositional phrases, alliteration and similes. Also remember to include correct punctuation: . ' , ? ! " "
