Yesterday was Colonel Tom Moore’s 100th birthday! He has recently raised 30 million pounds for the NHS by walking laps of his garden - how amazing! You can find out more about him by watching this clip. Everyone has been saying a huge thank you to him for the incredible, inspirational fundraising he has been doing.

We would like you to write a thank you letter to someone who has inspired you recently or made a difference to you - it could be a family member, friend, neighbour or teacher. Anyone you like! If you’d like, you can send in your letter to our email address so we can read it.

History

We are going to continue learning about the ancient Egyptians by looking at their way of life and the food and drinks they would enjoy. You need to read all the information and pretend you have just opened an ancient Egyptian restaurant or café. You are going to write a menu for it including all the food and drinks someone would be able to enjoy! You could even include some facts about how the food is sourced if you feel like challenging yourself...

 Another fun thing you can do at home, with your adult’s permission, is bake some Egyptian flatbread! You only need a few ingredients to make this ancient snack. The recipe is here.

Daily exercise

Learn the dance routine ‘How Far I’ll Go’ from the Disney film Moana.
