Choose a long-distance runner. and today you are going to find out some facts about them.


We have attached some links to websites that might be helpful if you choose to research Mo Farah or Kelly Holmes.

Estimate how many star jumps, hops, touch your toes then jump and sit ups you can do in 10 seconds. Write down your estimate then how many you get. How close was your estimation? Remember an estimation is about having a good guess, it doesn’t matter if it is not the correct number so long as it was realistic.

Enjoy some Calm Me time with Mrs Cocker


Today you are going to have some time to reflect on the past school year and consider the things you are looking forward in the future. Think carefully about both the summer holidays and when you return back to school in September, there are lots of things to look forward to!


When you think about the future, there might be something that gives you 'the butterflies' and makes you feel a little nervous, this is totally normal. Have a chat with your grown up about what you could do to try and make 'your butterflies' better.


Use the sheets below to help you record your ideas or draw some pictures of things your are looking forward to. 


Don't forgot to take time everyday to relax and enjoy some Calm Me time and we look forward to being able to share it together in September.

Play a sports games with your family and keep a tally of the scores. You could play basketball, netball, dodgeball, football, tennis….

At the end of the game add up the scores to find out who won. Can you count in 5’s to add up the totals? Who won? How many points did the win by?
