Topic Learning

Friday 3rd July 2020


  • Today in your PE learning we would like you to develop your tennis skills.
  • You will need a racket (if you have one) and a tennis ball.


Watch this video in the link below of Heather Watson, the professional British Tennis Player.


Learning Task 1:

  • Bounce the tennis ball on the floor with the racket (or use your hand) as in the video.
  • Try to use the centre point of the racket.
  • See how many bounces you can do before you lose control of the ball.
  • You will be developing your hand eye co-ordination for this task. 



Learning Task 2:

  • You will need a partner for this one.
  • This is called ‘ball tap and catch’.
  • One person throws the ball to one of the opposite persons hands and they tap the ball back, just like in the video and photo below.
  • Swap over so you both have a turn of either throwing and catching or tapping the ball back.



Learning Task 3:

  • Have a rally using your ball and racket.
  • You could make a mini tennis net in your garden or pretend one is there.
  • If you don’t have a racket you can throw and catch your ball using your hands like in the video and photo below.

Today we are going to be doing some Art/DT.


Learning Task:

  • We would like you to do a painting/drawing/sketch/collage or 3D model of a ‘Window into your Lockdown’ that shares your lockdown story with us.
  • Be as creative as you’d like. This could take you a little while to complete and you don’t have to do it in one go but we would really like to see all of your final pieces to display them.
  • Firstly, come up with a list of fun things that you did in lockdown or that kept you busy and entertained.


Here are some examples of what you could list; reading, sunshine, the garden, school learning, a laptop, pens, paper, your bike, family etc, a book you have enjoyed reading, a pet, a mixing bowl and spoon to represent cooking/baking, a scooter etc.


  • Next, draw your window. There is a video clip below to help you.


  • Now draw small images of all of the things that you listed earlier into the window space. This will become a memento of your lockdown experience.
  • You can add colour using pencils, paint or collage to the pictures and window frame.
  • Finally, you can write your own title on the window frame.


This will be a lovely keep sake to look back on in years to come and we can’t wait to see yours. Please take a photo and e-mail these in when they are completed.

Can you show light coming into your window by shading and adding tone to the sides of the windows like in the photo above?

  • Muscles help us to move and most of the muscles in our bodies are connected to our bones and skeleton.
  • If you move your muscles now, you might feel them getting harder when you flex them and softer when you relax them.
  • Today, your learning task is to predict and then find out which muscles you use to do different activities.
  • You will find a template you could use below.


Use the video link and see if you can explain the 3 different types of muscles you have in your body.

RE Session 2


In this week’s RE you are going to be making links between biblical texts and the concept of the kingdom of God. I would like you to begin by reading the story of ‘The Feast,’ Luke 14: 12-24. Discuss with your grown up how it made you feel. Do you have any questions, thoughts or ideas about the Story?



12 Then Jesus said to his host, “When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or sisters, your relatives, or your rich neighbours; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid

13 But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind,

14 and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the


15 When one of those at the table with him heard this, he said to Jesus, “Blessed is the one who will eat at

the feast in the kingdom of God.”

16 Jesus replied: “A certain man was preparing a great banquet and invited many guests.

17 At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is

now ready.’

18 “But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said, ‘I have just bought a field, and I must go and see

it. Please excuse me.’

19 “Another said, ‘I have just bought five yoke of oxen, and I’m on my way to try them out. Please excuse me.’

20 “Still another said, ‘I just got married, so I can’t come.’

21 “The servant came back and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and

ordered his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.’

22 “Sir,’ the servant said, ‘what you ordered has been done, but there is still room.’

23 “Then the master told his servant, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so

that my house will be full.

24 I tell you, not one of those who were invited will get a taste of my banquet.’
