National School Sport Week at Home 2020


This year, the Youth Sport Trust has partnered with Sky Sports to run a national campaign which aims to unite the country – families, schools, sport and businesses – in a celebration of the power of sport to bring people together, even during isolation. 


It is taking place this week (Saturday 20th – Friday 26th June).


The charity has created new, virtual resources to ensure that no child misses out on a school sports day.  I have uploaded the activity ideas pack below which includes web links to videos or websites for each event.  Can you challenge yourself to complete at least one activity a day during the week, or as many activities as you can in one day?

Each day this week I will pick one activity to showcase.  Today I have chosen ‘Nutty Squirrels’ from the ‘Athletics (Track and Field)’ section.  Practise running rapidly over short distances and change direction quickly using agility.

Enjoy yourself, get involved and have fun! laugh

Please send any photographs you take via our class email so I can upload them to our class page.  I can also forward them to Mrs White to post on our school Twitter page.



We will continue to read this Twinkl original eBook which is set in the Stone Age.  This week’s reading and writing tasks focus on Chapter 2.

Suggested timetable for this week’s tasks:

Monday – read and/or watch the video of Chapter 2 being read. Follow the instructions on the sheet provided to summarise key parts and then answer related comprehension questions.

Tuesday – complete ‘Conjunctions to Express Time, Place or Cause’ – Part A.

Wednesday – complete ‘Conjunctions to Express Time, Place or Cause’ – Part B.

Thursday – complete accompanying spelling task.


I have provided the resources needed for today’s reading summary and comprehension task.  Each day I will upload any additional resources needed for follow-up tasks according to the timetable above.

How to Skin a Bear Chapter 2

Summarise key parts of the story as you watch the video and then answer the comprehension questions at the end of the video.


We will begin by using the slideshow from the Spelling Shed website to introduce the spelling rules.  Hopefully an adult can work through the slideshow with you and direct you with the tasks, using the lesson plan as a guide.  Feel free to adapt the tasks as you wish.

If you have a Lexia or Nessy login, don't forget to keep up with your usage.  Try to spread it out throughout the week in short blocks (i.e. no more than 20 mins at a time).


Quick Maths


I have set three assignments on the ‘Busy Things’ website which involve interpreting data in pictograms, bar charts, tables and graphs.  Please try to complete at least one of the quizzes.  You will be able to review your answers once you have submitted a quiz and this will show you which questions you got right and wrong.

History – Skara Brae


Skara Brae is an archaeological site that has remains from a village in the Neolithic period.  It is important because it dates back to a time of major change during this period, when people were beginning to settle on farms instead of roaming around as hunter-gatherers.


Your task is to find out some information about Skara Brae and then present it to someone at home.  (There will be a writing task based on your research tomorrow, so you don’t need to write anything down today unless you would like to make some notes.) The following questions may help guide your research:

  • Where is Skara Brae?
  • What are the houses like?
  • What do we know about the people who lived there?
  • What happened to Skara Brae?


Use the web link below and/or read the information in the PowerPoint to help you answer the questions.
