Thursday 23rd April to Monday 27th April 2020
Over the next few days, we are going to carry out a design project to make a sail boat from recycled materials. Look at the document for further details. Keep going with your life skills. Enjoy your boat designing. Hopefully,. I may be able to see some of them soon!
Putting the shopping away
After your adult has been to the shop and bought lots of lovely food for you to eat, why not help them to put the shopping away. This will help you to learn where everything is kept. Your adult may also have reasons for keeping certain items in certain places, you could ask them to explain.
Life Skill-Making your bed.
Make your bed in the mornings.
This will make your bed look clean and tidy.
Fold your duvet back on itself.
Fold your nightclothes (pyjamas or nightie) and put them underneath your pillow.
While the duvet is folded back, run your hand and arm over your sheet, this will help to smooth out any wrinkles.
Now fold your duvet back so it covers your bed. You may wish to pick it up by the sides and shake it. You may also wish to leave it folded back for a while to air your bed, then complete this step later in the day.

Last term, we did some salsa dancing as part of our South America topic. We looked at the Rio carnival but never got round to doing any samba dancing, which is the main dance at the Rio carnival. Watch the video clip as many times as you need, to learn the steps and add more of your own. Practise, practise, practise and impress your family with your samba dancing.

Calm yourself after all that dancing with some relaxation. Just follow the instructions on the video.

Ship in a bottle (instructions below).
Friday 17th April
Let's get started with a bit of Yoga with Cosmic Kids - Popcorn and the Pirates
Below are some examples of flag designs from famous pirates. In the table below, you can find out what some of the symbols on the flags mean as they carry very important messages and 'warnings' to other oncoming ships. Can you use the table to work out what some of the flags mean?
|Red Pirate Flag||Warning sign for no mercy|
|Skull and Bones||Death|
|Bleeding Heart||Slow painful death awaits you|
|Edward Low (red skeleton)||Torment with eventual death|
|Hourglass Symbol||Time is running thin|
|Nude Pirate||Pirates with no shame|
|Clothed Pirate||Most likely stood for pirate captain|
|Lifted Drinking Glass||A toast to dying or to Satan|
Now, I would like you to have a go at designing your own pirate flag. Use some of the symbols above to help you.
If you wish, you can use the template below for your flag.
Watch the 'Pirate Song' video (you might know the song)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVfVIcW1alo – Pirate song (When I was one)
Learn the song and the actions that go with it.
The song on the video only goes up to when the pirate was 5 years old.
Can you add verses until the pirate was 10 years old.
If you already know the song up to when the pirate was 10 years old, change the words (in the first line).
Add actions to the verses you have made. Here is my go for when the pirate was 6 years old.
When I was six, I watched Netflix
The day I went to sea.
I jumped aboard a pirate ship
And the Captain said to me:
‘We’re going this way, that way,
Over the Irish Sea.
A bottle of rum to fill my tum
And that’s the life for me’.
If you want, you could dress up in the hat and sword you made yesterday. You could also write the song down so you can remember it for later or perform it with actions for the rest of your family.

As it is the beginning of a new topic, you are going to create a Pirates title page. Ideally use the page before today’s maths and English work, but don’t worry if you didn’t save one, just use the next available page.
You could have the page landscape or portrait. Write the word ‘Pirates’ in big letters in the middle of your page (make sure you spell it correctly!). You can use bubble writing or any type of writing, as long as it is clear. Colour it in neatly with colouring pencils. You might want to do a border around your page. Then decorate your page with anything related to pirates. Have a think. What could you include?
Friday 26th March
Make 3 paper boats - Santa Maria, Nina and Pinta. Use the ships to talk about and retell Columbus's voyage to the Americas . It might be nice to do this in some water.

I hope you are all well. I received a phone call from Ken the Koala last night telling me that one of the stick insects had escaped. Draw a map of your area, showing the route from your house to school so you can give the stick insect a map if he knocks on your door asking how to get home.
The map below might help you.
