Summer 1- Week 5
Hello everyone, I hope you are all well!
We have now finished our Roman topic and this week would have been sport week in school, where we come together to do lots of exciting activities all linked to sport, health and wellbeing, although we can’t do this in school together we can still do it virtually, so this week’s learning will be all linked to being healthy!
I know some of you may be struggling to motivate yourself learning from home, so hopefully a new topic will help create some excitement! Remember it is good to keep to a routine and a get a balance of learning (even the subject you are less fond of!). Also remember that some of your grown-ups are still working from home, so it is important that you try to work independently when you can.
In writing I would like you to create a non-chronological report in the style of a leaflet on how to stay healthy at home during this current time. You may need to conduct some research in order for you to write your leaflet. =
For maths this week we are looking at area. I have set you some worksheets, however if you want to get creative why not calculate area within your home, by measuring different rooms and furniture. Your super challenge this week is to measure your garden and calculate the area, I would then like you to draw a plan of your garden and redesign it. What would you add? Could you fit a pond in it? Playground? Swimming pool? You may need a grown-ups help to help you calculate!
In topic I have created a booklet with some outlined activities liked to sport and health and wellbeing, these are suggested activities and if you have any ideas of your own that’s also fine as well. Also if there is anything that you didn’t get chance to do around our topic of the Romans, you can also continue with this.
As always I would love to see the work you have produced, so if you can take a picture and email it to the school that would be amazing, as it always puts a smile on my face seeing what you’re getting up to! firstname.lastname@example.org
I am missing you lots and hopefully it won’t be too long until I get to see all your smiling faces again! Enjoy this week’s forecast sunshine and I’ll speak to you all soon! J

Next week would have been sport week in school where we come together to do lots of exciting activities all linked to sport, health and wellbeing, although we can’t do this in school together we can still do it virtually, so within this booklet there’s a variety of challenges to get you active and having fun. Please share anything you’ve done with your teachers and friends by emailing email@example.com
I’m sure you’re all missing your daily mile! On Sunday the 17th of May it would have been the Rotherham 10k at Clifton Park, although this is now not going ahead we thought it would be good to still get everyone running from home. This can be in your garden or on a local run. You could even challenge yourself to complete the virtual 10k throughout the week? You could complete 1.4K each day? For more information on how to get involved with Rotherham 10k’s virtual run visit https://www.rotherham10k.com/virtual.php.
Create a sports design using everyday items from around the home.
What you'll need
- Items from around your home of various shapes and sizes
- A clear space on the floor - your 'canvas'.
Using the items you have collected, shape them into the design of your choice linked to sport.
Science Wednesday- Be a heart detective
Today, we'll investigate what activity makes your heart beat the fastest.
What you'll need
- A timer
- A piece of paper
About the heart
Your heart is a very strong muscle. It pumps blood containing oxygen around your body, to every part of you.
It’s super important that we all keep our hearts healthy. This can be done by doing activities that make our heartbeat faster.
How to measure your heartbeat?
Your heartbeat is also known as your pulse. You can feel your pulse by placing two fingers on the left side of your neck.
To measure how many times your heart beats in one minute. Sit down quietly.
Use a timer to count how many beats you feel in 15 seconds. Multiply this by 4. E.g: 19 beats in 15 seconds x 4 = 76.
This will give you how many heartbeats you have in a minute while you are resting, also known as your resting heartbeat.
- Measure your resting heartbeat. Record this number
- Choose an activity that will get your heart racing. Do this activity for a minute, as fast as you can.
- Now measure your heartbeat - you should see a big difference. Record your heartbeat again.
- Make sure your heartbeat has come right back down to your resting rate before trying another activity.
- Repeat the steps and measure your heartbeat against some diffrent activities.
Health and wellbeing week is also about looking after your mental health! Create a gratitude tree. A fun, creative and pretty way of acknowledging the goods things in your daily life.
What you'll need
- Coloured paper
- Leaf template (draw around a real leaf or print one off line)
- Tree drawing (draw your own or use one online)
Cut out colourful leaves and write something you are grateful for on each one.
Expressing gratitude is a small act that can make a BIG impact on your mood and perspective.
With gratitude, we acknowledge the goodness in our lives.
This activity results in a pretty reminder of the things that bring us joy in our daily lives.
Let's get drawing.
- Using the leaf template. Draw around the template a few times on a coloured or plain piece of paper.
- With adult supervision, carefully use scissors to cut around the edges of the leaves.
- It's time to decorate.
- Write and draw the things you are grateful for on the leaves. You could also look for a photograph of something you are grateful for.
- Take your tree drawing and using the glue, stick each leaf to your tree. You could even get some sticks to add to your tree to make it more realistic.
Behold, your Gratitude Tree! Why not take it in turns to read out what you've written on your leaves?
Sports Day Friday
This week should have been sports day, so why not design your own sports day. What events would you have? Would you keep any that we do at school? Would you create any of your own events? Why not try them out and send in pictures and a description of what your new event would be and we could look at including your ideas in our next sports day.
