Please find below the suggested timetable of activities to provide some structure over the next week if you wish to follow it.  Please be aware that lots of these resources are on our school website, within the associated subject folder. Please choose subjects you enjoy doing, but try to also do subjects you may find more of a challenge too, you can share your sense of achievement with us! You do not have to cover all of these tasks and you don’t need to complete each task as if it is one lesson – take them as far as you would like to on one day, then you can come back and continue with them the next day.

 Your work as a secret agent has taught you a lot about the human and physical geography of India.

 Your first task this week is to revise this knowledge. (Please feel free to research any facts to allow you to complete this.)  

India Fact File

We now need to think about how we could travel to India and the routes we may choose to take according to which mode of transport.

Diwali is one of the most important and colourful of the Indian festivals. It is a festival of joy, splendour, brightness and happiness. The rangoli patterns are drawn near the entrance to a house to encourage the goddess of wealth to enter the house.

Please read All About Rangoli here.

This week’s art and craft activity will depend on the resources you have available at home. You can choose to do one or both of the tasks.

We would love to see a photo of your Rangoli creations.

In school we have been completing the daily live workout by Joe Wicks at 9 – 9:30am. It’s a great way to start the day.

You can always catch up with the live recordings later or look at his 5 or 8 minute workouts on his YouTube page.

You may also want to look at doing some children’s Yoga to give a peaceful moment to your day.
