How are you all? Did you manage to do the Virtual Sports Day? We had lots of great photos. We’ve done lots of PE ideas over the last weeks but sometimes we need a ‘brain break’ that isn’t PE based. When you just need a quick break, what better than doing some drawing or doodling? There’s a great video here from Rob Biddulph and if you don’t fancy drawing a cat, check out his YouTube channel for other ideas here.
Each week we will give you a task that must be completed, this is your Top Terrific Task.
This week you have lots of reading and videos linked to magical settings and creating suspense. Using all you have read / watched throughout the week create your own magical shop.
Draw a picture of your shop – labelling what is inside and what makes it magic.
Imagine you are an author and you are writing your opening chapter to introduce this magic shop.
Write your chapter. Try to include some of the words/phrases and sentences you have collected and written throughout the week.
Click here to email me your work. I will send you a message back and if I haven’t heard from you by Friday I will get in touch to see if you need any extra help.
This week you have a lot of activities that involve working with numbers, finding missing numbers, seeing patterns etc. In fact it gets so exciting that by the end of the week you have an Escape Room task to do.
Once you’ve done that you may want to learn some maths magic. In the following video you see the magic, then you learn the trick and finally (and most importantly) you learn how the maths works.
There are lots of ideas on your worksheet this week – all with a magical theme. Try to do everything on your sheet as all the activities will help you with your Top Terrific Task. In the video clip below you see Harry Potter walking down Diagon Alley for the very first time, compare the video to the written extract (see your worksheet) – how do they compare? On Wednesday you need this Suspense Toolkit and on Thursday you need this poem by Kit Wright, you can download them both by clicking on the links.
This week we're thinking about
Bletchley Park is a place of exceptional historical importance. Bletchley Park is a vibrant heritage attraction and museum, open daily to visitors. It is located in Milton Keynes. It was the home of British World War Two codebreaking; a place where technological innovation and human endeavour came together to made ground-breaking achievements that have helped shape the world we live in today.
Can you break the codes on your sheet this week?
