Good Morning Everyone!

I hope you are all well and ready for today's activities.  I hear that many of you have been busy doing lots of different types of exercise - well done!
Remember, you can do the tasks in any order, and you don't have to do everything if you don't have time. yes 

For those of you who are in school today, I hope that you have a lovely day with Mrs Wicks.... Make sure you work hard, have fun and show Mrs Wicks how brilliant you are!


                                                                                                                                                     

Let's begin the day with some exercise.
You might like to do one of these activities, or maybe go for a walk, run or do some cycling.

Wake up and shake up! Start the day with some PE, or maybe have a PE session later in the day.

Re
ading: 
Try to read a variety of books at home each day.  Aim to spend at least twenty minutes reading. This can be reading a 
book aloud or sharing a book with an adult. It might be a book from your bookshelf, a book from school or an online text.  
Year 2 - Remember that you can do an Accelarated Reading quiz when you have finished your book: https://ukhosted79.renlearn.co.uk/6706937


Today, we are going to watch to a story called The Catch  https://vimeo.com/76356335
A young fisherman's catch is stolen by a fox who leads him to the catch of a lifetime.

Think about these discussion questions :

Pause the film after 40 seconds when the child hears a noise.
Where does the child live? Is it near where you live? How can you tell?
Describe what he looks like.
What do you notice about the lake?
What is the child doing?
How do you think he feels when he looks at the fish in the basket? Why might this be?

Pause the film at 2:04 when the boy catches the fox.
What does he find behind the bush?
Why does the animal cower when he sees the boy’s knife?
How does the fox react to being cut free?
Why does the boy hesitate to follow the fox?
Think of three words which end in ‘ly’ to describe how the fox moves (E.g. Quickly)

At the end of the clip ask:
How is the boy feeling as he follows the fox climbing up the rocks?
Where does the fox lead him to?
Explain why do you think he takes him there?
Describe the sun over the lake in two sentences.
What does the new lake mean for the boy and his people?

Exercise Diary
Hopefully, you now have lots of activities listed in your exercise diary.
Write all the activities you do today, under the heading ‘Thursday'.


Be kind and help others

Don’t forget to try to do something to help someone else each day! There are lots of things that you could do to be helpful.  I hope you tried hard to be helpful during the holidays!  Have a think about what you could do to help someone!  

The Learning Project for this week: Sport
These activities are to work on throughout the week.  Choose the tasks that interest you.

● Obstacle Course Fun-
Your task is to design and make your own obstacle course outside. Draw and label the design first and include all the equipment you will need. Then use your design to create the obstacle course. Ask your family to complete the obstacle course whilst you time them. You could even make medals from tin foil or any other suitable material and present them to the winner during a winner’s ceremony

 
 
● Make a Family Mascot
You could make your own family mascot using materials from around the house.
First, visit the Olympic Mascot Official list and look at past mascots. Click on the British mascot to find out more ---> 
 What makes a good mascot? What qualities does the mascot represent?
 
● Remarkable Routines
Can you create a simple routine, just like a gymnast, dancer or synchronised swimmer? Start by watching a video of a routine together, here are some suggestions:
men’s gymnastic routine  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNIuIuv4eE0
ladies’ gymnastic routine:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_MaUTcJIc0
Then, choose a piece of music to practise your routine to.
When you are confident, you could ask someone to film your sequence.
Watch the performance together- what do you think went well? What could be even better?
 
● Terrific Team Kits
Can you design your very own team kit?
Think about the flag of the country that you would represent and how to incorporate the flag colours into the design. You could draw the design with a pencil or maybe use a computer program to do this.

● Research about the Olympic games.
What are the Olympic games?  When did they start? How often do they take place?   
 
 
● Can you Invent a New Olympic Game?
Challenge you invent your own game for the 2021 Olympics?
Look at a list of all of the sports that already compete in the summer Olympics: Click here --->      
Can you write a set of instructions for the new game or draw illustrations?  
Why not test the game out as a family?
 
Brilliant Bodies
● What can your body do? Balance on one leg? Touch your nose with your tongue?
Look at the body challenge cards and see how many you can do.
