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!
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.

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