White Rose Maths. Watch the video for the day and try the questions, writing the answers in your pink exercise book.


If you find this doesn't suit your family, try The National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Maths (NCETM) website which also offers daily lesson videos, but with more practical activities to follow up.


NCETM Learning in lockdown

NCETM have added two new areas to their website, designed to support teachers and parents/carers of primary and secondary school children throughout the period of school closures. All the resources are free to access and do not require a login.

Most lessons are 15 to 20 minutes long, each ending with suggested follow-up tasks. The current plan is for three new batches of five lessons each to be added every week.


Staying active

  • Do something active each day for 30 minutes.
  • Indoors try Joe Wicks on YouTube or Supermovers BBC.
  • Go on the trampoline, walk, play football or catch, learn to skip with a rope, ride your bike or scooter if you have one. Play with a bat and ball.

Once or twice a week:

Science: Find out about 5 Indian animals.

Draw them, label the animal’s body parts and find out what they eat.

You might try: Indian elephant, Bengal tiger, sloth bear, king cobra, peacock, great hornbill.

Art: The Paisley leaf

The paisley leaf is an art motif from India.

Can you find a paisley leaf pattern at home? You can often find them on scarves, bandanas, ties and other kinds of cloth.

I found the pattern on a quilt I made.

Can you see it near the top and at the bottom?

 Have a go at drawing a paisley leaf.

Geography: Let’s learn about continents! A continent is a large solid area of land. Earth has seven continents. In order from largest to smallest, they are Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Antarctica, Europe, and Australia (Also called Australasia and Oceania).

Here’s a song to help you remember:

India is in Asia.

RE: LC: Can I name some stories from the Old Testament?

Watch a cartoon of the Old Testament story of Abraham and Sarah.

Music: Have fun with YolanDa’s Band Jam.
