How about trying some of the activities below each week:

Week beginning 30.3.20:

1. Keep a diary of what is happening – include your thoughts and feelings – this is a truly unique time to be alive.

2. Help out with some cooking / baking at home – it’s great for maths weighing and measuring.

3. Extend your knowledge of the Ancient Greeks by finding out some similarities between the Ancient and Modern Olympics. Here’s a link —> BBC Ancient Greeks

4. Take part in a sporting activity:

Jump Start Jonny and Joe Wicks are doing daily workouts at 9:00 on Youtube

Oti Mabuse is carrying out a daily dance workout at 11:30 on Youtube

Make up your own fitness routine – you don’t need a big space to exercise in – even 5 minutes per day makes a BIG difference.

We will also share on this page, our news, photos from events and trips and some of the fantastic work that Year 5 have produced over the year to show off our talented pupils.
