Thursday 30th April

I hope you are all getting on well with your garden challenges? KFish had an animal challenge yesterday helping to deliver 5 puppies! Here is one of them.

Wednesday 29th April

Good morning Primary, at this strange time, sometimes it’s not the biggest actions that can have the biggest impact. Just look at Tom Moore, the 99 year old raised £28 million… from his own back garden! All of the things we do for each other count. Mother Teresa, a catholic nun who gave her life to helping others said, “If you cannot feed a hundred people, feed one.” Every action we take counts. Some of you have been mowing the lawn, washing dishes and helping with cooking, which is brilliant, get back to that. A special mention to Sam who has been helping an old lady with her shopping.

For Newsround we would like to include clips of you helping others or doing your own garden challenges! Please film yourself and send it to your teacher. Click on the image of Tom for inspiration.

Get your best teddy in a window and send your picture to me for twitter. Here is Noah’s penguin and bear ready to be spotted:
