Thursday 16th July
I hope you had a great day yesterday! At school in our bubble we had a good day and managed to spend some time outside making up games in the afternoon before it rained.
Today’s theme for Thursday is: Thumbs up Thursday
What’s one think you are really proud of?
Have a great day!
Miss Barrett and Mrs Ashby
Thursday’s learning tasks:
Start your day with an active start. There are lots of options for you:
- Weekly challenge from Pav
- Norfolk School Games Week 1
- Joe Wicks – daily P.E on YouTube
- Go Noodle – also available on YouTube
- Or create your own P.E session – for example, an obstacle course in the garden or lead a keep fit session with your family to your favourite tunes.
- Read your book for 20 minutes. Or you could read a book from Bug Club. Bug club books are great because they have comprehension questions for you to answer too.
- Complete a maths quiz on Diagnostic Questions
- Maths – This week for maths look in our Resources section for details.
- Further Maths to have a go at! Visit the White Rose website ‘Summer Term Week 12 (w/c 13th July) and complete Lesson 4. Remember, if you are finding these too tricky you could look at a lower year group or if you need a greater challenge look at a higher year group instead. We do not have a subscription to the worksheets so this activity is just watching and discussing the video.

- Visit Active learn website and select a maths and a SPAG activity to complete.
- Writing challenge for the week: Choose another starter for writing today from the document in the resources section.
