As mentioned, the plan with our activities over the next couple of weeks is to focus on practising key skills to help prepare for the return back to school.
Here is a basic overview of the week. As always, you don’t need to follow this if you don’t wish to.
Today’s focused practice is on number bonds:
I would like you all to have a go at Q1 and 2 of the extension questions. For those of you feeling up for a challenge, you could also have a go at Q3 and 4. If you’re feeling extra ambitious, you could also have a go at the challenge question.
Today’s activity, we are going to be continue to look at noun phrases:
Over the next couple of week, we will have a WCR session every day. These will all link to a certain subject. Today’s is a poem by Rudyard Kipling.
Here is your spelling activity for today: ance&ancy – (2)
As mentioned, our afternoon sessions over the next few week will be focusing on certain skills which will be incredibly useful for us to practise before returning. Today’s will involve using your creativity, resilience and problem solving skills.
Your task is to build the tallest free-standing (not supported by anything other than itself and the surface it is on) tower out of anything you want to.
We won’t be having any P.E. (physical education) sessions over the next couple of weeks. However, we will be doing a some daily physical activity sessions. Out of interest, the difference between physical activity and physical education is that physical activity is simply completing some exercise – whereas physical education involves specific learning about a physical skill, activity or sport.
For your daily physical activity, I would like you to run, cycle or walk every day (it could just be around your garden – even if it’s quite small!). Then, if you could send me in the distance you have completed (it could be an estimate if you’re not sure), that would be great. A picture of you completing your activity would also be great if you can! The recommended daily physical activity for children (aged 6-17) is at least 60 minutes over a whole day, so for this particular physical activity you could aim for at least 30 minutes.
