Big Breakfast

Bowl of cornflakes What do you like to eat for breakfast? Cereal? Toast? Or fish?

Peter and his friends went fishing after Jesus died but they didn't catch a single fish until a man on the beach called them to try their nets on the other side.

It was Jesus!

Jesus cooked fish for breakfast and shared it with them.

After breakfast, Jesus had a chat with Peter and gave him a special job to do, caring for Jesus' followers.

What job will you do?

Busy Bees

Have you seen a bee buzzing round the flowers in your garden?

Did you know bees are celebrated across the world on 20th May?

Bees carry pollen between flowers. They are necessary for farm crops and our food.

Help bees in your garden by growing flowers in pots or in the ground throughout the year for pollen and nectar, leave a tray of water out and treat them to the shelter of a bee hotel!

Bees on a honeycomb Bees cleverly make beeswax and honey too.

Think about how important bees are next time you enjoy the sweet taste of honey.

Leonardo da Vinci was very talented. He was a painter, sculptor, designer and scientist.

Leonardo da Vinci Leonardo kept lots of notebooks filled with his ideas and drawings.

He drew designs for parachutes, robots and scuba gear long before they were invented. He was also interested in how the human body works, in nature and rock formations.

He started as an apprentice to a painter and travelled in Italy working for merchants and statesmen. His most famous paintings are probably a huge wall picture of the Last Supper - and the Mona Lisa whose smile and eyes seem follow you round the room.

Leonardo ended up working for the King of France. He died 500 years ago on 2nd May 1519 after a very full life.
