Kensa's Home Learning Activities
Hello Mrs Copson-Ball
Here is my Plucky Pearl adventure and my pirate pet Snapper. A picture of a fish from leaves, flowers, sticks and grass I made for a Beaver challenge. I also made some yummy lollies. Today I found a stick man on our walk!
Thank you for sharing your wonderful activities.
It looks like you has such a lot of fun doing them.
Thanks for sharing,
Nancy's Squashed Tomato Challenge

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.
Edwin has shared some of the things he has been busy doing at home. In maths, Edwin has been learning groups of 10. He has also written his own sea shanty which he sang to me when I called last week. Thank you so much Edwin, it was lovely to hear and to hear how you have been doing.
Merryn has been busy choosing some pirate tasks from the home learning menu. She has enjoyed her pirate maths book, labelled a ship, drawn a pirate and a pirate pet and learned about Sir Frances Drake. Merryn has also made a plaster hedgehog with sticks collected on her walks.
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.
Today Lilla did some baking and cake decorating with her brother and sister.
She stirred and measured and dolloped to make some yummy chocolate cakes.
Lilla met a toad at the allotment today.
We talked about what toads eat and where they live and she set him free knowing that he would be 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.

Thank you for sharing your poem with us Nancy.
News from Merryn and Edwin
Merryn has been working on some phonics and Edwin written a book all about pirates. His contents list looks interesting and seems to cover almost all topics, including women pirates which is great. Here he is working on a map of Where Pirates Went. He loves reading the bedtime story to everyone.
They have also spent some lovely time playing with Isaac and Robyn and enjoying walks and the garden. Next, Merryn and Edwin and the family will be learning more signs.
