Friday

Woodlands

 

Did you know spending time outdoors in nature is good for you? It’s true! Being around trees and wildlife can boost your mood and reduce stress, and that's something we could all benefit from right now. Getting active outside is a great way to improve your family’s fitness too.

If you have a garden, there’s plenty of fun you can have in it during winter. In England, you’re also allowed to exercise outside once a day in your local area.

 

Activity one : 

Discover nature on a walk

While you're getting your daily exercise, keep your eyes peeled for wildlife. Even though it's winter, there's plenty to see and hear. Encourage your family to look out for:

  • birds feasting on berries
  • squirrels scampering up and down trees
  • animal footprints in frost or snow
  • the tuneful singing of a robin
  • snowdrops popping up out of the ground.

 

If you can't get outside for a walk then you can try this activity in your garden.

If, like me, you don't have a garden then try sitting near an open window. Leave your technology behind and really focus on what you can see and hear. Maybe you can do a quick sketch or check back throughout the day and see if there are any changes. 

 

Here are a list of websites that suggest fabulous ideas to help you and your family get outside!

For history this week, we are going to continue our work linked to World War 2.  

You will need the information from the PDF above to help you with your work.  You can also google world war 2 timeline and you will get lots of information there too. 

Activity: Create your own timeline.  Try to use pictures as well as writing to make it more interesting for you to complete.  You could record this on paper or create your own powerpoint or poster in word.  It is up to you!!

PE

For PE on Friday's we will be re-looking at PE with Joe so lets have a quick re-cap of what his workouts were like. Remember you can also use this time to go for a run or a walk with a family member.
