Keeping Active at Home

Safety points:

  • Remember to always wash your hands and the equipment which you use before and after each activity.
  • Make sure you have a suitable space and go outside if you can.
  • Make sure you have a drink to keep you hydrated.
  • Always ask your parents’ permission before you start an activity

USE YOUR IMAGINATION!

If you do not have the equipment required then use your imagination with things you may have at home.

e.g.

  • Socks rolled up as balls/ beanbags
  • Broomsticks as unihock sticks
  • Washing basket as a net/goal
  • Plastic cups as targets/ catching targets
  • Chairs/ tables as obstacles
  • Empty plastic bottles as bowling pins
  • Pans for throwing and catching targets
  • Cut out Card board boxes as targets

Mr T Does History

The aim of this pack is to introduce children to the concept of living memory as a chronological term and the disciplinary concepts of continuity and change, evidence and similarity and difference. All evidence can be gathered by speaking to family members over the phone, e-mail or via Skype.

The findings of the enquiry can be presented in whichever way suits your child best – be that using PowerPoint, a non-chronological report or drawing.

The task is straightforward, they must use the resources at their disposal to answer the following question, set by the world-leading Oxford history Professor Peter Frankopan (@peterfrankopan) and author of The Silk Roads – A New History of the World:

“If 1066 is said to be the most important date in English history, what is the equivalent in another country?”

How will you decide on the winner?

The essays, once complete, should be submitted to students’ usual teachers.
