Each week we try to get you thinking about PE and being active – it is so important for our physical and mental well-being. Another important side to staying active is variety, but sometimes this can be hard, especially if we think we need specialist equipment – so this week we’re sharing this cricket idea with you. If you thought you needed special equipment to play cricket, think again!
Each week we will give you a task that must be completed, this is your Top Terrific Task.
This week’s task is History and it links to the Weighing of the Heart Ceremony (see below). There’s lots of information on your sheet and there are links for the internet to.

This week, there is lots of work on your sheet – including work on perimeter and problem solving. There’s also lots of chance to practise your multiplication tables. These are so important for helping us with quick mental calculations and we need them in order to solve problems. Do some of the examples on your sheet but, if you have a deck of cards, we also think this game (below) is great.
This week you will exploring the words that you use when you are writing. When you are reading try to spot the powerful verbs that authors use – do they just say ‘walk’ or do they use a verb that really describes how the person is walking? There are lots of activities on your sheet and we think this song will get you in the mood for some powerful writing.
