Hello Team Chameleons!
This week's Special Mentions go to Aiden and Kylie. Well done guys!
The work that everyone is sending in is amazing so keep it up.
Wednesday 6th May - The P.E activity for today is to find a big blanket or towel and lay it on the floor, stand on it, move it and then fold it up a bit. Can you still stand on it and move it? Repeat this until it is too small to stand on.
Monday 4th May - The P.E activity for today is to do log rolls, find a safe space in your house to practice rolling like a log, in a straight line.
Here is the timetable for this week. Fridays are going to be more creative work days from now on, so you will see there isn't a maths, grammar, reading or writing task on Friday, instead that is when I will set a creative task and an activity to promote positive thinking.
