Quizzing - On Friday, grown up will read out your spellings and you write them down onto a piece of paper. Check your spellings with your grown up. How many did you get right or which words to do you need to practice more?

Don't worry, I did a lateral flow test and the dragon hasn't got Covid. Can you write a letter to the Fire Service to ask for their help? What questions do you need to ask? Make sure you explain what has happened. See the attachment below.

Literacy Wednesday - Continue writing your letter to the fire service.

PE Monday - Basketball - Can dribble a ball? Start off using two hands at the same time. When you are confident at dribbling with two hands, try bouncing the ball with your writing hand, then try your non-writing hand. As a final challenge can you dribble the ball with alternating hands? How many times can you dribble the ball without it stopping? Each time the ball hits the floor count one number higher. Can you get to 50 or even 100?

DT Tuesday - Research Chinese food. Watch this video to help you get started. Can you find some photos of some Chinese food you would like to eat and label them with their names? Remember to ask a grown-up before going on the Internet and tell a grown-up straight away if you see something that worries you. What foods do they eat a lot of? What utensils do they use to eat their food?

Wednesday - Continue working on your China topic homework. Check the Knowledge Organiser below. Do you understand all of the vocabulary? If not, ask an adult to help you. This is our favourite song about China at the moment. On Wednesday afternoon, you also need to practise your handwriting. We are starting to think about using joined up handwriting now. Make sure you start on the left-hand side of the letter and finish on the right; it's really important otherwise you'll get into all of a pickle when you try to join up!

PE Thursday - Gymnastics - Can you practise your tuck, pike and straddle positions. If it is safe to do so at home, practise balancing. Can you make up some balances with 1, 2 , 3 or 4 points. Points are where a part of your body is touching the floor. Make sure you can hold each balance for 5 seconds.
