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.


Find, observe and accurately draw a tree close to your house. You will need paper and pencil. To draw a tree accurately you will need to look at form, size, colour and texture. This can be done several ways: You might want to look at trees on a walk and pick your favourite one to draw. It could be a tree you can see from your window. I'm lucky to have several trees outside my front room window and lots of squirrels! Perhaps you have a tree in or near your garden and can do a sketch. If all else fails take a look at some really cool trees on google, perhaps you can draw a palm tree?


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

English - Lesson 

L.O- To justify personal responses

Begin by listening to Chapter 13 and 14 of the story.  Listen carefully as today you will meet ‘The Warden’ for the first time.


Key Questions to think about

What do you think of the warden?

Was there anything that shocked you?

How does she treat the boys?

How does she treat Mr Pendanski? Why do you think she behaves this way?


Activity: Create a character file for ‘The Warden’.  

Draw a detailed picture of her using the details in the text - you could copy down examples from the text also.  

Write a detailed paragraph to explain your first impressions of her. (use the questions above to help you think about your response to meeting the Warden for the first time.)  Remember to give evidence from the text (actions/description) to explain your ideas. 



Chapter 13 and 14

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.

Now we need to apply what we have learned: by representing remainders in different ways depending on the context of the problem.
