L: Who and what in or lives deserves respect?

In school we made a list of people, ideas or things that deserve our respect. We talked about how important it is to respect ourselves too.  We then linked our PSD discussion to science and talked about how we need to respect our planet, Mother Earth and look after our environment.  Here are your tasks:

Task 1:  Make a list of positive, happy thoughts. 

Task 2: How does your garden grow? 

Draw a rectangle on a piece of paper.  In the space draw plants and flowers, fruits or vegetables that you would like to grow in our Year 5 allotment space.

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.
