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


Complete the ‘front curling’ activity and record your result before having a go at any of the skills. We will then revisit this activity on Friday after you have practised the skills to see if you have improved your score.


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’, ‘rotate fluently’, ‘only one foot in contact with the floor’. If you do not have a tennis ball, why not try with a pair of socks or a teddy.


On Friday, we will be using these skills in some activities.


This week, your spelling rule is: statutory words.


Complete the activity found on your spellings sheet which is: Put each word in to a sentence to show you understand. Challenge: Put as many words as you can in to 1 sentence (It must make sense).


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