Good morning everyone!
Today is Thursday 21st May. It is also known as Ascension Day. This is because today is the day we remember Jesus ascending into Heaven.
I hope you have a peaceful day, enjoying the activities I have set you and playing nicely at home and in the sunshine.

Today you have two activities for History. We have finished our topic of Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole and how they changed nursing around the world. We will now be moving onto two small projects that you can do at home with your family over the next week and longer, if you wish: 1) a family tree and 2) a competition that you can participate in for Black History month.
1. Family Tree - you will probably need a little help from an adult.
2. 100 Great Black Britons competition (if you would like to enter).
The competition is for young people to create a fun and unique project celebrating Black Britons and their legacy. You will pick someone of your choice and write about them, or do a video about them, or a presentation. You just have to explain their history and why they were so important.
