Week by Week: Summer Term 5 Week One: challenges and daily tasks

Good morning everybody! I hope you have all had a lovely Easter and spent some time in the sunshine. I loved all of the baking photos that you sent, I’m actually really impressed with some of your baking skills and can’t wait to get back to school so I can try some of them out.
Unfortunately it seems we are not quite ready to get back to normal yet. But I know you understand how important it is that we follow these rules at the moment, even though it feels very strange.
I’ve got some new work for you for this week as well as a couple of fun challenges. All of the work and challenges will be posted on the website as well as here just in case it is easier to access from there. Please make sure you are going on the different apps such as reading buddies and my maths too because we have set work for you on there as well.

Teaching Handwriting This is a great website that has lots of ideas for helping develop handwriting. It covers everything from core strength, correctly sitting position to forming letters.

Creative ideas
  • Imagine if there was a 10 star hotel for children! Write a description of this amazing place.
  • One day you come across a key. Imagine what this could be for… Write a story about this.
  • Find out about St George – Draw a cartoon strip to tell the story.
  • Create an animal with the head of one type of creature, body of another and legs of another. What is the name of this beast? Can you write a fact file about it?
  • Draw a map of a magical island and create a key to go with it.
  • Use an atlas or the Internet to find out all the capital cities of the countries in Europe. Can you learn these and get an adult to test you. Maybe you can test them too!
  • Go on a shape hunt around your house. What can you find and what shape is it? Think 2d and 3d.
  • Grow a bean or some cress. Observe what happens and record your findings.
  • Make a fact file or Power Point about the planets or some interesting facts you can find about space.
  • Make a snack, some cakes or a meal (with help) and write a set of instructions for what you have done.
  • Design and make a new board game to play with your family.
  • Design a new front cover and blurb for a book you have read recently.
  • Create a poster to encourage people to be environmentally friendly - you decide how.
  • Design and create a menu for a restaurant. You could draw pictures of the food and write the descriptions to go with it. Do you have any special offers?
  • Design your own theme park and create a poster or leaflet and write the script for an advert.
  • Imagine you have £1000 to spend on designing a new bedroom. Use a catalogue to cost this out.
  • Using a tape measure to measure things in your house.
  • Create a new nation – what is your country called, what language do the people speak? Write a national anthem, design a flag, what do they eat? What currency do they have?
