***LEAVERS' BOOK ALERT***

Topic: As a class, we love to read. Can you recreate your favourite book front cover? This might be sketched, painted, collaged, mosiac or any other creative way that you could use. Someone has had a fantastic idea that these could also go into the Leavers' Books (thank you Mr Varney!). If you are in school next week, you can make the final design and if you are at home, I will happily bring round any materials or resources that you will need. 

The designs could be created on A3 paper so it it easier to design. I can shrink the pages down into A4 for your Leavers' Book. If you want to design it on A4 paper, that is fine!

There was another idea (Thank you Miss Margetson), that you could replace the authors name with your name in the style a it appears on the front cover.

If you have any questions, blog at me or email Mrs Fox!

Today we will be learning more about the parliament in England.

Did you know?

  • Every country in the world has some form of representative government.
  • Parliamentary systems fall into two categories: bicameral (with two chambers of parliament) and unicameral (with one chamber).
  • Out of 193 countries, 79 are bicameral and 114 are unicameral, making a total of 272 chambers of parliament with over 46,000 members of parliament.
  • 25% of the world's members of parliament are women. Is this fair? What would you do to ensure gender equality?
  • 28.1% of the world's members of parliament are under 45. Is this fair? Do more younger people need to be part of parliament?

Topic: Today is Ariana Grande's birthday! I have attached a PDF with four images from Google which can be reused without copyright. Could you use one of the images and create a portrait of Ariana using words about her life? The same way as we did in the autumn term in art.  You will need a bank of words about Ariana of differing lengths and some colouring pens or pencils.

Facts about Ariana - https://kids.kiddle.co/Ariana_Grande

Early in her life, Ariana took inspiration from Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston. Here are two of the songs that she loved to sing.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLFfXTwdVbY - Mariah Carey (Hero)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSBNi8PCb7Q - Whitney Houston (I will always love you)

As a four year old Ariana would listen to these two songs and sing them with her brother! Her family knew that she had a talent.

Topic: Today is the International Day of the Seafarer. A seafarer is defined as someone who travels by sea. Can you think of all of the different things this could include, where they might go and what they could be doing?

https://www.vesselfinder.com/ - This is my new favourite ever website. You get an understanding of how many ships there are in the world right now, where they are and what their purpose is. Can you find where POS Logistics 1 is right now? It is from one of the videos. On the left hand side of the webpage, if you click on the cog you can select or deselect the types of ships that you want to see. If you only select cargo ships you will get a true understanding of how much traffic there is in the oceans transporting good and food for us.

Secretary-General's message on the Day of the Seafarer

Seafarers are among the world’s unsung heroes.

The International Day of the Seafarer is a time to honour the world’s two million seafarers whose dedication and professionalism keep the vast majority of world trade moving safely, delivering vital goods – including food, fuel and medical supplies.

Seafarers have continued to provide this essential service under the unprecedented and difficult conditions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Even in the best of times, seafarers work for long periods away from home, their contributions largely unheralded. Yet in recent months, their burdens have grown exponentially with COVID-related travel restrictions that have prevented hundreds of thousands of seafarers from leaving ships. Fatigued and weary, their time at sea has been extended months beyond the standards stipulated in international conventions. This is an unsustainable humanitarian crisis.

This year, more than ever, all countries in the world must honour our seafarers by recognizing them as key workers and providing the necessary travel assistance to ensure safe crew changeovers and repatriations.

United Nations agencies — including the International Maritime Organization and the International Labour Organization — along with the International Chamber of Shipping and the International Transport Workers Federation — have developed protocols to do just that. I renew my call on all governments to urgently implement these protocols.

Without seafarers, the world’s economy could not function. On this Day, let us all salute seafarers everywhere for their work and do everything possible to support them as we navigate the challenges of this pandemic together.
