Good Morning Key Stage 2!

As always - please remember to just manage what you can and take things at your own pace. There is no expectation that you need to complete absolutely everything, everyday.

Thank you for sending through your fantastic art work yesterday. I have uploaded your pictures onto the virtual gallery.

Don't forget to log on to Spelling Shed or Times Table Rock Stars.

Get active this morning with a game of balloon volleyball.

English - Writing

Today I would like you to think about the first page of your leaflet. Think carefully about what leaflets look like, how they are folded and the content of their front cover. I'd usually give you the task of going to lots of different places to collect leaflets, unfortunately, you won't be able to do that at the moment so use kiddle.co instead to research.

Your leaflet will have lots of information so needs to be at least A4 (this can be folded).

On your front cover, you must include:

  • name of the country
  • a picture of something that represents the country
  • tag line

Handy hint: Most countries have an official website, you should find a tagline on there, e.g. 'ancient history, natural beauty, rich culture'

Here is an example of what it could look like.

Here are some examples of different leaflets.

Today I would like you to log on to MyMaths and complete your activity.

Topic/Creative

For PE today we are thinking about improving our stamina.

To warm yourself up for PE this afternoon, go for a 5 minute jog around an outside space.

Stamina Circuit (you must complete each activity for 2 minutes with a 45 second rest between each activity)

  • Lap Running: Run continuously from one side of your garden/outside space to another.
  • Star Jumps
  • Step ups: use a bench or outside step (be careful)
  • Hops: hop from one foot to another

Once you have finished your PE this afternoon, why not get started with Mr Rivers' poster challenge. Think really carefully about what the words Engage, Excite, Empower mean to you. You might want to create a mind map with your grown up.

Once you have lots of ideas, have a look at images of class dojo on kiddle.co for some inspiration or Mr Rivers' Poster Challenge.

Top Tips

  • draw your design very lightly in pencil first (if you make any mistakes, it will be easier to rub them out)
  • make sure you have written your word of choice using a capital letter at the beginning
  • think very carefully about the size and spacing of your letters (use a ruler to measure the spacing first)
  • use colouring pencil
  • once you think you are finished, use a black fine liner to outline your design to really make it stand out.

Well-being/Mindfulness

Relax by watching African elephants. Be patient, it might take a while for you to see them.
