Maya Angelou

Virtual Sports Day will take place on Monday 8th June. Each activity your child completes will then receive 1 house point. So a maximum of 7 points. If you can dress up in your PE kit and take some photos. These are the activities to complete-

Strawberry and spoon race with your family

How many times can you bounce a ball in a minute?

How far can you walk balancing a book on your head?

Race with members of your family in a three legged race?

How many skips in a minute using a skipping rope?

How many bunny hops in a minute?

How long can you hols a plank?

Please can you let me know which activities you were able to complete by Tuesday 9th June 12pm. Also any photos would be great.

Thankyou in advance.



This activity to complete over the week.

If you have some bottle tops please could you write a  b  c  d  e  f  A  B  C  D  E  F on each top, then have a go during the week to match the small case letter to the capital letter. Explain to your child that they have a capital letter at the beginning of their name and when we write a sentence. Can you think of anyone that has one of these letters at the beginning of their name?


Perhaps you can all do this tomorrow as a family- Go outside, take off your socks and shoes and dive feet first into nature. Our feet are super sensitive. The skin on the soles of our feet is soft and full of nerve endings. That aah moment you get when you take off your shoes at the end of the day proves it. Can you find a few different environments to walk in barefoot? It might be the garden, a field, wood, stream, path, sand or just use your imagination. Just go a little wild!! How does the grass feel between your toes? Does it tickle? Is the grass soft or rough? (It might be at the moment). How does the sand feel? If you're lucky to have a stream nearby or maybe a paddling pool or just a bowl of water. Describe how it feels? What about walking on the path? Which is your favourite?

Now can you write some words down on flashcards- path, water, grass, sand etc? Then encourage your child to think of some descriptive words- soft tickly, warm, crunchy, dewy, wet etc. Then finally some words to describe how you might walk- tiptoe, darting, dashing, creeping, plodding, sauntering, swagger etc. What can we use as a title for our poem? I'm going to use- Barefoot in the wild

Let's try and put some sentences together

Barefoot in the wild

Tiptoe in the dewy grass.

Dashing on the crunchy grass.

Creeping in the soft sand.

Plodding in the gooey mud.

Now you can do this orally to begin with and make up some actions to accompany the poem. You could even use some rhythmical claps or tapping on an object.

Then have a go at writing your own wild poem. Have a go at spelling too.



Keep counting in 10's on the boil


All Children-With a collection of 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p coins- Get 4 containers and label the outside of each 1. Put the rest of the coins in 1 container. Choose a coin and try to aim into the correct container. It's basically a matching game. Take 2 coins out and add together. At this stage your child might pick out a 1p coin and a 2p coin and say the total is 2p. So make sure they look at the value of each coin.

Most Children- Lay some coins on the floor. Then encourage your child to match a collection of coins to the ones on the floor. Then can you count 1 of the piles, how much? Can you record as a sum?

 Challenge- Collect 10, 10p coins and a tin. Practise counting in 10's as you drop a coin into the tin. Do this several times then encourage your child to close their eyes and count in their head as you drop coins into the tin. So you child has to listen carefully and tell you how much is in the tin. So if you drop 8 coins it will be 80p. Repeat several times.


Fitness- Diary

In preparation for Sports Day, can you create a fitness diary over the week? Encourage your family to join in too. In your book you can write- On Monday I like to run. On Tuesday I like to hop. On Wednesday I like to jump etc. Draw some pictures of what you like to do. What exercise are you looking forward to doing after Lockdown? Try to spell as many words as you can on your own.



Hope fully you have now got a selection of layered, coloured circles. Now get another sheet of paper and create some colourful, block waves. Then place the circles on the coloured paper. When you are happy with the arrangement, you can glue them in place. NOW YOU HAVE YOUR FIRST KANDINSKY CREATION. More to follow next week. 


Don't forget to complete your sports day activities. Get the whole family involved.
