Below are some activity ideas that you could do at home:


 Create an exercise plan for maintaining a healthy heart.
 Design and make decorative heart-shaped tokens to give to someone close to your heart.
Find out about the historical tradition of Valentine’s Day. Why are hearts traditionally used as symbols of love?
 Find out about some famous heart surgeons. What do you need to study to become a heart surgeon? How long would it take if you started right now? What skills and personality would make you successful in this role?
 Look out for heart shapes around you – in decorative ironwork, embellishment in clothing and jewellery, in nature and wallpaper. Photograph your findings and make a colourful montage.
 Think about what we mean by ‘heart-stopping’. Write about a ‘heart-stopping’ moment in your life. Describe to another person the bodily sensations experienced and then capture it in words as accurately as you can.
 Collect red colour charts from a DIY store and compare the shades and names. Mix paint to create our own favourite shade of red.
 Find examples of proverbs or idioms relating to the heart, such as ‘wear your heart on your sleeve’ or ‘eat your heart out’. See how many you can find and explain what they mean.
 What does the phrase ‘Blood is thicker than water’ mean? Write a short story using this as a title.
 Find out about the different pulse points on the human body including the side of the neck (carotid), wrist (radial), top of thigh (femoral) and elbow crease (brachial). Test the different pulse points – which one has the strongest pulse?
 Measure your family’s resting heart rates before putting them through their paces. Ask them to hop, skip, jump, and run measuring their heart rates after each activity. Fill in a table or spreadsheet with everyone’s results before looking for patterns in the data. Who has the slowest heart rate? Which exercise gave the biggest increase in heart rate?

    This year all children will receive CGP books for Maths, GPS and Comprehension. This will focus on pre-learning tasks as well as consolidating learning. The content within the books are designed to be similar to SATs style questions. The expectations for the books will be explained weekly and will be available on the class pages.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Maths homework will be set weekly via www.mathletics.com – here pupils will be consolidating and pre-learning topics taught in class. This is due to be completed each Wednesday. Pupils without a device at home will be given the opportunity to complete this at school. Once their set tasks are complete they can compete on Live Mathletics, trying to get their name on the leader boards enhancing their mathematical skills further.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Spellings with be set on a Friday after a pre-spelling test and teaching of the spelling patterns. Children will then be tested again on the following Friday in Class. To support the learning of the spellings, here are some possible activities you could use:
    1.          Find out the meaning of 6 words and write their definitions in your books.

    2.         Use 6 words in a sentence correctly.

    3.         Find synonyms for 6 of the words in this week’s spelling list.

    4.         Write out each word in this week’s spelling list 5 times.

    5.         Look, write, cover, check for each word.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pre-learning tasks are an opportunity for pupils to gain an advantage in their future learning. For example if we were learning about adding fractions then the tasks set the week before would be about adding fractions, and pupils would have had an exposure to the learning area before we have a lesson in it.
