Daily activities                                                                                


Real P.E at home


Your parents should have been given a login for Real P.E at home – the P.E scheme we follow in school.


Click here to login.


This week we want you to look at ‘dynamic balance’. When you have logged in, select KS2 and then find the dynamic button on the left hand side.


Each day, practise one of the skills. A suggestion would be to start on blue and either work your way down to red if it is too challenging, or up to pink if it is too easy. Focus on the language and do not rush – ‘maintaining balance’, ‘walk fluidly’, ‘with my eyes closed’. On Friday, we will be using these skills in some activities. 


Physical activity

You can also still choose 2 of the NETFLEX activities to do each day or pick one of the 10 minute Disney shake ups to do each day to boost your physical activity.



Your new spellings sheet for this half term can found by clicking here.


This week, your spelling rule is: statutory words.


Complete the activity found on your spellings sheet which is: look up the meaning in the dictionary of any words you are unsure of and write down the meaning. Then, choose 5 words and write a short story, including all of the words you have chosen.


You can also practise your spellings using the spelling menu or by completing the word mats found below.



  Complete the RIC activity about the botanist, Janaki Ammal.  Botany is the study of plants. 

This half term in science, we will be learning about the Life Cycles of Plants.  

The books below are on MyOn.  Two of them are traditional fairy tales with a twist and one of them is a non-fiction book. 

All of them have a link in some way with a flowering plant! 

Choose one of them, and click on the link to read the book.  Then log onto Accelerated Reader to take the quiz. 


English (grammar)

L: Using commas to clarify meaning


Watch the video explaining why commas are so important to clarify what a sentence is actually saying. Then, complete the activities below.


L: Recapping how to add fractions


Last half term we learnt a few different methods of how to add fractions. Watch the video here to remind yourself of the different ways, then complete one of the worksheets.


This task has been set via Teams assignments. You should complete your work on a piece of paper and then take a picture or upload an electronic document you have worked on.


This term's Jigsaw PSD focus is the topic of 'Healthy Me'.  The Learning for Week 1 is on the dangers of smoking. 

Everyone should read the information text.  Please then choose one of the activities to complete. 

Being Healthy is also about looking after yourself.  A big part of this is about feeling happy and taking some time to do things that you enjoy.  When you have completed the main activities, please take some time to do something you enjoy on Monday afternoons as well.  Keep this activity away from a screen to give your eyes and brain a break from it.  If you like, keep a journal of your Monday Mindful 'Me-Time' activity.  It will give you a feeling of satisfaction to look back on and see all you have achieved in taking time out to look after your own well-being. 


Book Talk!

We had another enjoyable Book-Talk session this afternoon and had a great time sharing our love of reading.  You can see the pictures of the books we talked about this week below.  Which ones do you think you might like to try reading?
