Optional PE: complete a daily challenge

Spelling (20 minutes) –

Look up the definitions of any words that you are not familiar with. You could record them in a notebook or on paper. Then practise spelling the words (write, write, cover and write, cover and write, check). Continue to practise any you do not spell correctly.


Arithmetic (10 minutes)

Watch the video about square and cubed numbers. Then complete the calculations in your Maths book – Powers.


Watch the videos showing light and shadows.


Using your knowledge, can you fill in the missing words in the passage below?



Watch the video about shadow puppets.


Using your knowledge of light and shadows, create a shadow puppet show. You will need a torch and a screen (flat surface). To make your puppets, use card / plastic and straws/craft sticks/lollypop sticks - ask an adult at home about which resources you have that you could use. You could also make objects for the scenery/background. Think about the story your show will tell – it could be a traditional tale such as The Three Little Pigs. How will you use your knowledge of light and shadows to make some objects or puppets larger or smaller? How can you make some shadows darker or lighter? How will you tell the story? Consider the puppets actions and the narrative. Perform you shadow puppet show for someone at home.


Votes for schools (20 minutes)

See this information on the class pages. Discuss your thoughts with your family.
