DAILY WORK

Coming to school and having a routine is very important. It makes our lives much easier. They help us achieve all we need to do and keep us focused. Plus they help us our adults at home to get on with what they need to do. 

We understand that every house will be different but here is what your timetable might look like.:

9:00 Reading Read your own book.
9:30 Maths See our Google Classroom
10:30 BREAK Get outside whenever you can
11:00 Literacy See our Google Classroom
12:00 Lunch Get outside whenever you can
1:30 Afternoon Learning This will be a whole host of activities, similar to what we do on a normal week at School


Something Different... to keep you active.

 

Create your own board game to play with family members.

Learn about your family history and create a family tree.

Plan and cook an evening meal (with adult supervision, of course) for your family – don’t forget to set the table and create your own restaurant style menu! Perhaps your family members can rate the experience based on presentation and taste.

 

Create an indoor/outdoor obstacle course for your family to take part in.

Research constellations – can you identify any well-known constellations in the evening?

Make a den in your back garden. Don’t forget to post photos on Google Classroom

DIY bowling – create makeshift bowling pins out of your recycling. Perhaps you could decorate your bowling pins too?

 

Explore the world using Google Earth – where have you been before? Where would you like to go? How far away are the places? How long would it take to walk or fly?

Plan and host a movie night with family. Arrange the room to your preferred style, choose the snacks and the film, and don’t forget to create the movie tickets to gain entry to the movies!

 

Bake cookies/biscuits/ cupcakes (make sure an adult supervises).

Shadow drawing - Please see our post on Google Classroom to see the accompanying picture

 

Craft: Learn a new skill. E.g. sewing, knitting, embroidery.

Research and memorise the Kings and Queens (UK).

Host a tournament e.g. seated volleyball (with balloons if inside), hula-hooping, penalty shoot-out.

Craft:

Finger painting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Qe8MOhKaiM

If you don’t have paints, why not make sock puppets from old/odd socks?

 

Create your own family song – perhaps you’ll choose to include some musical instruments.

Set up a camp in your back garden (living room). Will you camp out overnight? Be sure to send a photo on Google  Classroom of your set-up.

 

Make fruit kebabs (with adult supervision).

Indoor/outdoor garden tea party or picnic with family. Will it have a theme? Perhaps you’ll choose to dress up!

Art

This is great way to practice your artist skills, but also relax in an afternoon. We do like the step by step tutorials on oksketch.com but also we love (well Mr Moonie) a bit of Let's Draw Star Wars.

 

The Great Indoors - from the Scouts

As the experts in developing skills and bringing adventure to young people, the scouts want to do what we can to help.  

They normally love the great outdoors, they’ve pulled together some inspired indoor activity ideas. Keep yourselves learning new skills and having fun (and help your mum and dad avoid hearing ‘I’m bored’ every 30 seconds) all in #TheGreatIndoors. LINK HERE
