Tuesday 12th January - Writing/Geography
This week we’re going to be investigating our home city of York. To start this, read the ‘Teddy’s Day Out’ story below. Use the photos and questions to help you retell the story to your family. Can you use the story map attached below to draw and label each place the Teddy visits?
Please send us a photo of your completed story map. Please let us know if you’re happy for this to go on our webpage gallery.
Wednesday 13th January - PE
This week's challenge is:
- Set up a start and finish line
- Challenge yourself to think of 3 ways of getting from the start to the finish
- Try out the different methods
- What is the quickest way from the start to the finish?
- What was the slowest way from the start to the finish?
- Once you have experimented you can race. Use a handicap system for different age children. Older have to use slowest method and younger fastest.
S - Make the course a route through the house or the garden
T - Place obstacles or challenges on the track (dressing up is always a winner!)
E - Complete the course with an object e.g. balancing a book on your head
P - The Two Person Challenge - Piggy back, wheel barrow, always holding hands etc.
