Happy Wednesday, and happy Earth Day!
I thought that since it’s Earth Day today we could look at activities around this as this is what we would be doing at earthy type activities. Below are selection of suggested activities you can do today. There is a lot to choose from, you don't need to complete them all.
PE with Joe Wicks
If you fancy a change, you can always go for a walk with an adult or have a run around your garden.
It’s not a planet, it’s our home.
This video was created by WWF and sees a chimpanzee sent into space during the space programme in the 1960s as an experiment – guys do you remember the book we read about this? 65 years later the chimp has returned and he sees Earth and all it’s changes through the eyes of a stranger.

Have a fabulous day!
