Maths - Finding change

Today we would like you to role play being a shop keeper. Choose 10 - 20 items from around your house and label them with a price less than £5. Get members of your household to come to your 'shop' to buy an item. When they pay make sure you give them the correct amount of change. If you do not have any coins/notes at home you could make some pretend ones or use the printable ones below.

MILD: Price your items using multiples of 10 (e.g. 10p, 20p, 30p etc...) and get the shopper to pay with a £1 coin or less.

SPICY: Price your items using multiples of 5 or 10 (e.g. 15p, 65p, 70p etc...) and get the shopper to pay with a £2 coin or less.

HOT: Price your items in pounds and pence (e.g. £1.99 ) and get the shopper to pay with a £10 note or less.

PE - Gymnastics

It is really important that you are in a large, safe space before you try any of the things in this lesson. We would not suggest practising things like forwards rolls/cartwheels/handstands without mats.

 

Last week in PE you should have created a gymnastics sequence that included 3 shapes/balances, 2 jumps and 2 ways of travelling. We would like you to practise that sequence again today then, if possible, get somebody to film your sequence. Watch it back and think about the following questions:

- Did you use straight legs/arms and pointed toes/fingers?

- Did you hold your balances/shapes still, without wobbling?

- Did each part of your sequence link smoothly to the next?

- What did you do well?

- What do you think you need to improve?

PSD/ Jigsaw

Our Jigsaw theme this half term has been 'Dreams and goals'. Reflect on your own personal lockdown challenge:

-Was there anything you found tricky? 

- What did you do when things felt difficult?

- How did you feel when you achieved your goal?

- Do you feel inspired to create a new goal?

 

Please submit a photo of you working towards your goal via the upload link so that we can make a collage to celebrate our success.

 

When you have achieved your goal you could design a certificate for yourself, or fill in the template below:
