Here are some activities to try this week.
Tomorrow we had planned to celebrate our annual Sports Day but for obvious reasons we are unable to go ahead with our plans.
However, instead of focusing on what we can’t do, why not turn the situation into a positive one and create your own ‘Sports Day’ at home?
You could race against members of your family, you could try and beat your own scores or you could just join in for fun!
Here are some suggested race activities:
Or you could always create your own amazing races!

Mr O’Brien asked the children in school to work on a project for Whitburn Church. The theme is “Hope for the Future”. As part of this task, we have been writing our hopes for the future on doves which will be displayed on the railings outside the church.
If you would like to contribute a “Hope” you can send your message to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will pop it on a dove for you. Alternatively, I have attached the dove template below for you to write the message on yourself.
Just a reminder that entries for the ‘Great North Run’ T-Shirt Competition must be e-mailed to email@example.com by 12pm on Tuesday 19th May, or they will not be entered into the competition.
Thank you for the designs I have received so far; they have been amazing!

To celebrate VE Day and Deaf Awareness Week, I have signed part of the beautiful song “We’ll Meet Again” by Vera Lynn.
Remember you can send us photos and videos to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know how you have celebrated today.
Tomorrow marks the 75th anniversary of VE or Victory in Europe Day, which brought an end to hostilities in Europe during WWII (trying not to give too much away, as part of Year 4’s home learning this week is to find out what VE Day is and why we celebrate it 😉 ).
I thought we could provide a few fun and creative activities that you might like to complete at home with your families to mark the occasion.
It would be lovely to see how you are marking VE Day at home. Please remember to celebrate responsibly, adhering to government guidelines.
Stay safe and well,
We had some spare paper plates in the kitchen so I turned them into a game of go fish. I put the the numbers 1-5 on the plates (two of each number) and turned them upside down so we couldn’t see the numbers. Pick two plates to turn over and if they match you keep the plates. You could use numbers, dots or a mixture to test is you can match numeral to quantity.
You could use pieces of paper instead of plates and draw fish on them to make them more colourful and creative.
More confident children could use larger numbers and older children could have addition/subtraction problems and answers e.g. one plate has 2+1 on and another with 3 on.
KS1/2 children could use this game to test multiplication and division facts. If you are feeling super confident you could even put equivalent fractions on the plates.
Hope you enjoy!
Remember to send in pictures to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org if you create your own version!
Let’s remember our punctuation!
As children are completing home learning, with the best will in the world, they may forget how to use those fronted adverbials, apostrophes for plural and singular possession or even how to use common and proper nouns.
Never fear, we’ve attached a few support presentations to help children to remember how to use a range of punctuation. These should work alongside support materials given with weekly challenge grids to help children to complete tasks.
Hope these help!
