Natalie Billings Reeves
Monday, 21 June 2021
Hi, my name is Natalie Reeves Billing, and I’m a children’s author. My latest book, Ben and the Bug, is all about Covid-19 and how to stay happy and safe. Today, at the start of picnic month, we will be looking at how to have the perfect picnic while staying safe. We will be: Making some delicious jam butties Playing a throwing game to win treats Having a socially distant picnic Playing ‘Wrap up’ with the picnic blanket Reading a nice bedtime story I wrote yesterday called, ‘The Toadally Awesome Picnic’ Picnic month is a time to celebrate the simple sandwich and the great outdoors. When meeting up with other people, it’s much safer to do it outside, where germs can fly away in the wind. So, choose a sunny day, pack a picnic, take your hand gel, and get outside into the big wide world.

All About Me
Thursday, 10 June 2021
Hi, my name is Emma and today I would like to celebrate all the amazing things about ourselves. Everyday, we take for granted the things we have around us. We may forget how lucky we are to have trees, parks, birds, the sea or farms around us. Today, we are going to find these special things. We will need to look very carefully, using new equipment, which we are going to make in our first activity. Each one of us is very special and it does not matter where we live or what we look like, we are all special in one way or another. Some people enjoy writing or drawing or riding their bikes. Others may like making monsters and robots out of boxes. Whatever you like doing, the most important thing is to have fun! We will try some of these fun and exciting things in our other activities today. In today’s activities, you and your family can celebrate all the things that are special about you. I am sure you are going to have lots of fun.
