Charlie's Activities

Charlie and her family had a popcorn tasting session. They had a selection of different flavours and had to try them and try to guess the flavour.

They have also been watching a woodpecker who keeps visiting their garden, along with a whole family of squirrels.

Charlie found parts of a beautiful old vase in the garden during our own pirate treasure hunt.

Charlie and Mummy made granola, it was delicious!

Oliver's Home  Learning

 Oliver loved seeing all his friend's faces this week on Zoom!

He wanted to send in theses pictures of his hook, eye patch and pirate pet (rainbow shell the turtle!). 

Oliver has also spent a lot of time walking and playing at Callington New Bridge (Ollie's new favourite place!) and, along with wading out into the water up to his waist with just a token pair of short wellies on, he's been finding an awful lot of these painted stones that he wanted to share with us.

Oliver and his dad are going to try and paint some for next time they go down there.

Wow Merryn, you have been busy. Thanks for sharing. 

The Further Adventures of Plucky Pearl by Bryher 

Before that she looked after a dragon as she was a doctor. She made him better as she was very clever.


Early one evening, she saw some treasure in her spyglass. She sailed to it and gets all the treasure. But a bad guy comes to get it. But she takes it back by calling people to get her dinghy and she rows it back to her boat.


On a dark, stormy night she saw some dolphins in the sea with her torch. They glowed because of effervescent and made Pearl happy.

VE Day Anniversary 

Nancy has been learning about VE day. 

VE Day - or 'Victory in Europe Day' - marks the day towards the end of World War Two (WW2) when fighting against Nazi Germany in Europe came to an end.




On 8 May 1945, Prime Minister Winston Churchill made an announcement on the radio at 3pm that the war in Europe had come to an end, following Germany's surrender the day before. You can find out much more about VE Day on the Newsround webiste: https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/48201749.
