Good morning everyone! We have made it through to Friday together! I don't know about you, but I've found it a very busy week. I can't believe that it is the first day of May today. I have to say what a fabulous job you and your parents are doing. Mrs Rogers and I are SO impressed with all of the work that you send to us. It makes us feel like we are still together; just working in slightly different places!
Our learning for today is;
So, hopefully from my video you will have a clearer understanding of the times when Jesus appeared to his disciples over a period of 40 days after the resurrection. How do we know that these events happened? Because they were recorded, most of these key events by the disciples themselves.
What a journey Peter has been on. Always one of Jesus' disciples he felt despair when he let Jesus down, when Jesus was arrested, by saying three times that he didn't know him. Jesus called Peter his 'rock' though and Peter will no doubt feel more at peace that he has now also told Jesus three times that he loves him.
Today you are going to write a postcard/ letter to the other disciples who were not on the boat that day, to tell them of what happened.

Making our Papier Mache Balloons
We are only making the papier mache today. It will have until next week to dry. I will provide poster paints from school next week for decorating should you need any. Good luck! I will be making one too. We can share our results via the blog!!!
As an introduction to making our hot air balloons please look at the powerpoint below and the video clips show you how hot air balloons work.
We will follow the instructions on the slides, but I have also included the link to a you tube video which is well worth a watch to see how to make a glue mix with flour and salt and then moves onto the PVA glue mix. It takes you through each step.
Our afternoon activity - Designing our hot air balloon
Using the powerpoint from this morning study the patterns and designs of the hot air balloons. You will also have the following example (see below) in your first home learning pack, as well as a design sheet. Design, watercolour and make a fabulous design that you will recreate on your balloon next week. I will provide paper bowls for the basket and paints next week. We would love to see your designs via our email or blog. Enjoy your day and have fun.
