Additional activities

Brum Brum! Learn how to draw a car.

Exercise! During lockdown it’s really important that we exercise. Remember in science we found out that exercise is just as important for our mind and our overall wellbeing as it is our bodies. Now that we’re learning about time in maths, I wonder how many star-jumps you could do in 1 minute? High knees? Or burpees? I’m sure there’s lots of exercises that you can think of. Maybe you could write a list and see if you get better over the week – or set yourself a challenge for the month.

Bake! I baked the vegan chocolate chip cookies last week and I thought they were amazing! This week why not try the Roman rocky road recipe.

Help out! Lockdown is hard on our parents and carers too. They have so much to do! What can you do to help? Dominik has been busy tidying his room, Olivia has been mopping the floor and Loui helped with the washing up! What could you do?

Birdwatch! It’s the RSPB annual bird watch this weekend. Why not use the sheet provided to look for and make a note of all the garden birds that you can spot in your garden or local park?
