This Week's Topic


This week’s topic is named ‘United Kingdom’. There are many activities for you to look at, from kings and queens to flags, mountains to monuments and from festivals to the Olympics.

Talking of the Olympics, I know a lot of you were either not around then or were watching if from your prams and push chairs, but you could always watch a video I have put on the resource centre. It’s called ‘A Golden Games’. I’ll challenge any parent to watch that without getting a bit teary eyed in places.

It really is a great watch if you love sport and PE so have a look! 

It has also been requested that I set a challenge for this week so here it is:


One of the topic tasks set has been to design a flag. If I am sent 20 excellent examples of this by Friday (obviously from 20 different people) to:  I will endure a three ice bucket misery. Fortunately, I will be judging if they are excellent or not! As usual, I will not be partaking in any water based punishments if the challenge is not met!

Good Luck!
