Hi all, as Miss Edwards and I have had our trip to Zambia postponed, we have been thinking about how we can keep our link with Mufulira Primary School going. Mrs Davis has been busy contacting the teachers out there to see how they are doing and we would like to keep sharing our learning. Here are some activities we would like you to do at home and share with us. Some of it we will be sending out to Zambia, whilst others we will be displaying in school. Please scroll further down the page to find examples of our work and photos from Mufulira.  Parents please think about which activities are suitable for your child (academically and emotionally) and adapt as needed.


1. Find out about someone in History who has helped in medicine. For example, Florence Nightingale, Edward Jenner, Alexander Flemming and Louis Pasteur. There are some resources further down to support you but there is a lot more online. (SDG3)

2. Let us know how you are contacting friends and family e.g videocalls, online quizzes, sending letters. We will compare these with the children in Zambia and how they are keeping in contact with loved ones. (SDG3)

3. We would like to share photos with our friends in Zambia of all the amazing things you are doing such as the things you have made; anything you have been cooking or baking; what you have been planting and growing; and any fitness you have been doing at home. I know a lot of you have been sending these to your teachers already so thank you. (SDG3, SDG11, SDG13)

4. We would like to create a book, to be displayed in school, with poetry that you have written during this time. It could be an acrostic poem, rhyming poem or any other.  (SDG3)

5. Whilst on a walk or out and in your garden, can you take a picture of nature (please don't include people in the picture) (SDG3)

6. Write a diary entry of a typical day before, during and how you think it will be after lock down. Our Zambian friends will also be writing their own diary entries to compare. I wonder if we will be having similar experiences. (SDG3)

7. What do you think the positives and negatives of lock down are? You could create a table to compare or write down your ideas in two paragraphs. (SDG3, SDG9, SDG11, SDG12, SDG14, SDG15)

8. During this time we have been using the rainbow as a symbol of hope. Please share any rainbows you have produced with us. Do other cultures, within religion or during other periods of history have different symbols of hope? Maybe you could create a poster sharing the different symbols of hope. (SDG3)

9. What impact do you think the lock down has had on the environment? (SDG11, SDG12, SDG14, SDG15)

10. Can you produce a poster to advise others to keep safe during the pandemic? (SDG3)

11. During the daily government briefing, they often share graphs and data. Could you compare the data and analyse the trends? (SDG9)


Please send any photos or documents of you work to your teacher who will upload it to this page.
