For ICT, if you have access to a computer, I would like you to open Microsoft Word (or pages if you use a Mac at home) and use the shapes tools to create a colourful poster.

I would like it to have a rainbow theme or it could be about thanking the NHS.

If you don't have a computer, why not try it on paper. You could stick the finished posters in your windows at home for people to see as they walk past. Make it as bright and colourful as you can. 



This term in RE we are going to be looking at religious journeys. Think about a special journey that you have been on. Where did you go? What did you do? How long did you stay?
