Computing

This week’s Purple Mash activity introduces you to turtle instructions. See if you can control the movements of the on screen turtle.

Art

Grab a pencil and some plain paper and see if you can do an observational drawing of a butterfly. You may need a parent to take a photograph of the butterfly you spot to draw later because they can move very quickly. Or take a look at these two white butterflies, there have been a few of these fluttering around the school field during the lockdown.

   

Religious Education

This video talks about why Christians go to church but doesn’t tell us what children do whilst they are there, can you think of some questions to ask a vicar or member of the church about what children do when they attend church?
