It was so lovely to see lots of Maple class on Zoom this Friday and I’m sure Elm are excited for their call this week. Hopefully, seeing each other will remind you that we are all in it together. We are so proud of how well you are doing and we can’t wait to see you back in school when it’s safe for everyone to return. In the mean time, continue to enjoy playing and exercising in the sunshine this week and have lots of fun making memories with your family! If its a wet week and you find yourself getting bored at home, then you can have a go at these Five Minute Boredom Busters!

Find out about Ancient Egyptian Gods and Goddesses by reading the attached information sheet and powerpoint. Compare them to beliefs today and think about how Egyptians made sense of the world. Find out about amulets too and why the Gods carried them.
Use this website and powerpoint to help: https://www.childrensuniversity.manchester.ac.uk/learning-activities/history/ancient-egypt/ancient-egyptian-gods/
Draw and colour your own Egyptian God or Goddess. Include the Name of your God/Godess and then write a paragraph about them to explain their name and why Egyptians worshipped them. There are additional colouring sheets too.
Flex those Muscles!
Recall the main purposes of the skeleton: Protection, Movement and Support. Now explore your own muscles moving e.g. in your arms and what this feels like. What happens when you bend your arm and stretch it out again? What does it feel like? What is happening? Look at the clips below to find out more.
Sportspeople often have big muscles in order to move their arms or legs quicker (for runners) or to lift heavy objects. There are many different muscles in the body and all muscles come in pairs – as one muscle contracts (gets shorter), the other relaxes (gets longer) enabling movement to take place. In order for the bones to return to their original position, the opposite muscle must contract to pull the bones back into place. Muscles are joined to bones by tendons to assist movement, bones are joined to bones by ligaments
Complete the worksheet (only print one page as they are slightly different versions of the same) and complete word search.
Have a go at some mindful abstract art! If you don’t have paint you could do this with coloured pens or pencils. Remember to let the first layer of paint dry before you add the black detail. If you don’t have a very thin brush then you can use a black felt tip pen or sharpie. I’d love to see your finished work so don’t forget to send a picture! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oszYioG37Pk
Follow Home activity pack 3 and complete the activities.
You may also want to go back and have a go at the touch typing games from earlier weeks!
Have a great week and don’t hesitate to get in touch if we can help with anything.
