This week, we thought we’d lighten up on all the advice and information we’ve sent out recently, so…
It’s quiz time! Here’s a game called Red Herring…
Sphere Federation is made up of three primary schools. Each school has a Head of School, and there’s me, the Head of Federation. We’ve all listed three facts about ourselves, but beware! One is a Red Herring – it’s completely false. Your job is to work out which one is just plain wrong!
Miss Hague, Scholes (Elmet) Primary:
- I worked in pollution control before becoming a teacher.
- I can talk like Donald Duck – it’s my party piece.
- I appear in a travel brochure for Spain.
Miss Weekes, Moortown Primary:
- I can juggle, but only with handkerchiefs (they’re slower than balls!)
- I wanted to be a rally driver when I was little.
- As a child, I hated wearing dresses – I used to hide them.
Miss Beatson, St James’ CE Primary:
- When I was younger, my dream job was to be an air stewardess.
- I used to pack tracheostomy sponges.
- I can play the banjo.
And me, Mr Roundtree:
- I can do a bridge pose (although not as well as this one).
- During university, I ate a medium pan pizza every day for three weeks.
- My favourite music is by a Dutch band called The Nits.
Make sure your child is in the know about coronavirus and other news…
There’s a lot of wrong stuff out there on social media:
- Misinformation is a mistake: information that’s accidentally (but still unhelpfully) wrong.
- Disinformation is deliberate: information that’s wrong on purpose; this can be especially harmful.
You can always rely on Newsround to present the news to children in a way that works. And it’s not all doom and gloom – there’s an opinion poll at the moment rating the best celebrity teacher whilst the schools are closed. Who do you think is rated top so far? Could it be…
- David Walliams
- Carol Vorderman
- Oti Mabuse, or
- someone else entirely?
Do you know anyone whose English may not be good enough to understand the important health messages from the NHS at the moment?
