After today’s why not have a go at making a sculpture of a person using playdough, bread lego or anything else you can think of. You could even make your own playdough by finding a recipe online. It really easy to make!!!!!


Log into Purple Mash and have a go at the 2Code ‘Air Traffic Control’ in your 2Dos. Make sure you watch the short video that explains what to do. Take your time with it and see how far you can get. It is a little confusing at first but stick with it.


Finishing off

Use this afternoon as a bit of finishing off time. I am aware there has been a lot to do this week and with it being the first week back you might not be quite up to speed.


You might also want to use the time to make something to wear next week for world book day. The theme is Witches and Wizards. You can dress up all week to our live lessons so why not make a wand, hat, Harry Potter style glasses or even a cape!



2:00 – 3:00

We will come together to play a game and catch up.


It is important to stay active whilst at home not only to stay fit and healthy but it also makes you feel good! Here are a few ideas that you could for your PE whilst at home. Mix it up each week to get a good variety of activities.



Joe Wicks is still streaming live PE lessons on his YouTube channel at 9 am Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

If you miss it, don’t worry it will be available to watch again afterwards. So fit it in around your day.

 In school we have been watching in the afternoon.

Search for ‘Jump start Jonny’ either on Google or YouTube and follow one his wacky workout dance routines. He does some more calming routines now too.

Practice your throwing and catching skills. Use a ball, small pillow, orange, apple or whatever you have to hand. Make some targets to hit. Make up a scoring system. How many times can you throw it into the air and then catch again? Can you improve your score?

Go for a walk, scoot or bike ride. Ask your adult if they have an app to track the distance that you travel or the steps that you do. Set yourself a target and see if you can achieve or even beat it. Maybe look at a map and plan your route before you set off.

Make up your own workout routine. It could include start jumps, press ups, sit ups, jogging on the spot etc. You could steal some of Joe Wicks’ moves. Remember to have some upbeat music playing whilst you workout to keep you motivated.
