Today's challenge is something that I often enjoy doing when I'm feeling a little sad or worried about something.
Today I am challenging you to cook or bake something! If you can't do it today then why not plan something to make later in the week or even at the weekend?
Take a look at this website that has plenty of easy and healthy recipes to look or see if you can invent something that includes the contents of your fridge or cupboard! https://www.nhs.uk/change4life/recipes
Yesterday I made these cheese scones for me and my husband to have for lunch this week (they're not very healthy but they're very tasty and it's okay to have a little treat once in a while! )
Make sure you ask an adult to help you with any cooking or cutting and don't do anything before you check it's okay!
A big thanks to Miss Kenwell for sending me a picture of her sunshine yesterday (pictured below), she put my drawing to shame!

I don't know about you but I feel like I'm sitting down a lot more than I usually would be at school so it's important to take lots of little breaks to get you moving!
Top tip for today - Every hour, try to get up and have a little stretch! Here's a little 5 minute stretch video with a few dance moves thrown in to get you up and moving! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RM4b-w66wpk
Or why not make up your own stretch or dance routine?
Have a good day!

Today's challenge is to draw your own sunshine then in the middle of it write or draw all the things that make you happy.
I've done one if you would like to look at it for ideas (although your drawings may be a little better than mine! ) and have focused on all the things I can still do or see, even while we're in this strange situation .
Stay safe everyone,

How is everyone? Did everyone manage to do some good home learning last week? Remember if you would like to get in touch and tell us how you're doing (we'd absolutely love it!) then please e-mail your home learning address and the teachers can pass on any messages.
Today's top tip:
As well as English, maths and reading, why not do a bit of daily music too?
Myleene Klass is doing daily music lessons at 1pm on this Youtube channel:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQh2wgJ5tOrixYBn6jFXsXQ (if that link doesn't work for any reason then just type in Myleene's Music Klass into Youtube)
Fun for the whole family!
Don't forget to let us know how you get on.

Well, we've made it through our first week - well done ! Tomorrow ,it's the weekend and we can relax after all the hard work we've done this week.
Top tip for the weekend :
Try and make your weekend a bit different to the week days; take a break from school work, watch a film with your family or play a board game.
You could try making your own board game using a cereal box like these ones I found on the internet.
Have a lovley weekend !

Hello, Mrs Glover here!
I hope everyone is staying safe, having fun and working hard on your learning. I'm going to post a Health and Wellbeing Challenge every day for people to do if they choose to. I'll be doing them all too and posting pictures where I can. Please feel free to e-mail any pictures or comments to your home learning e-mail addresses!
Challenge number 1: Go on a mindfulness walk. Write or draw 5 things that you can see, hear, feel, smell or touch (make sure you have an adult with you if necessary and stay far way from people you may see when you're out, although you can still say a friendly hello!) You could even do this in your garden if you have one!
Here's a picture of my mindfulness walk that I went on at lunch time today!
I saw trees and water, I heard birds and rustling, I could smell different plants and I could feel the sun on my face :-)

We are nearly at the end of our first week of home schooling ! Just one more day before the weekend ! I hope you've been able to complete some English, maths and an activity from another subject area each day ?
Here's a top tip for if you get a bit stuck on a question:
Have a look at BBC Bitsize https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize . The website is free to use and has lots of clips and clever ways of explaining things we might find tricky in our school work. It will help you persevere and finish the question or piece of work you were stuck on.
It also has fun games to play to practise skills such as spelling,maths and grammar!
I've just played this excellent game :
Why not have a go yourself !

What have you been up to today ? Did you try the Joe Wick's work out?
Top tip for tomorrow:
To help you organise your days , why not make a timetable for your home learning ?
Write down what you will do from your home learning pack each morning and maybe read a book after lunch. Tick each activity off as you complete it.
Remember that you can email your class teacher with any questions about the work in your home learning pack.

Hello everyone ! We hope you have had a safe weekend and enjoyed the sunshine (even if you were indoors) .
It's a funny feeling not having to get ready to go into school tomorrow, but we still need to do some school work to keep our minds active. Here's two top tips for tomorrow :
Get up and eat breakfast before 9am
Choose one or two pieces of work from your home learning pack to complete before you go on any device.
Let us know how your home learning is going by emailing us using your year group email address.
