Reading

Read your Accelerated Reader book this week if you have it at home. If not, reading a book of your own, even for 15 minutes each day, is always very useful to practise your reading fluency.

 

Reading comprehension

Read this week's text and then answer the questions. There are three different levels of text and questions which get slightly more challenging each time (from 1 star up to 3 stars). It is up to you which level you choose, but choose Level 2 or Level 3 if you would like more of a challenge! Answers are also included.

We usually do this on Friday morning in school.

*WELLBEING WEDNESDAY*

You are all working so hard at home and we know how difficult this is! With this in mind, we thought it would be nice to have a break from things every once in a while. So, on Wednesday (24th February) we will have our next ‘Wellbeing Wednesday’ to take a ‘brain break’ from all of the hard work you are doing at home. We would love to see you choose one or two of our suggested activities to help you to take a midweek break, relax and do something for your mental health and well-being at home – children and parents! We will be doing exactly the same in school on these Wednesdays too. Each class teacher might still outline a morning task on this day e.g. Science, Topic or Art. But then, we would like you to choose a mindful activity or two from the grid below. We would love to see what you get up to on these ‘Wellbeing Wednesdays’ to look after your mental health, so please tweet us any photos @BishopCEPrimary. See the link below for the grid of suggested activities.

PE: It is really important to try to keep active at home. Here are some suggested PE activities that you could try.

One activity to do at home is yoga. It is relaxing, calming and really stretches your muscles! Visit 'Cosmic Kids Yoga' (see link below) for some sessions.
