Home Learning Singapore Class
DO YOU WANT TO BE A PLAY LEADER IN YEAR 6?
Usually at this time of year Pete Gwynn would be working with some of the Year 5 pupils on training to be PALs (Play Active Leaders). Instead, he has sent us a pack that the Year 5 children can work on at home to try and develop their PALs skills, as pupils would normally be participating in this activity this half term to learn the important skills needed to be a Play Leader. This pack can be downloaded below along with the video which pupils can view to learn about what it is like being a Play Leader and what a Play Leader does. If you would like to be chosen to be a Play Leader in Year 6 please complete Activity 2 in the Play Leader's pack, writing your application letter addressed to Mr Ryan, Miss Squires and Mrs Teakle explaining why you want to be a Play Leader and why you would be good at it. Please send your application letters to email@example.com where we look forward to reading your applications ready to choose our Play Leaders for next year in Year 6.
Your Letters from Lockdown
Thank you for your letters from lockdown to explain what life has been like for you and for your super messages for your classmates!

Mindfulness Colouring Activities:
Everyone needs a calm moment now and again. Colouring is an activity that sparks the logical and creative aspects of the brain into action. If you think of colouring like a mental exercise, then you're keeping your brain active and improving coordination. These mindfulness colouring pages are a great way of focusing your mind on a relaxing task. Print out the colouring pages you wish to do for when you might need a quiet moment.

• Create a line graph to show all three sets of data using Graph Paper 3A or Worksheet 3C. The y axis (the vertical axis) is measured in minutes and hours. Your scale needs to reflect this i.e. not in base-10 (the best scale to use is whole and half hours).
