This week we will be putting a combination of activities and links on this page for you to complete. There will be some physical activities and creative/art activities. The children should aim to do at least one of them each day. It may be a good idea to do these activities in the afternoons when the children would normally be time-tabled to do them.
Use the Cosmic Yoga link below to follow the different Yoga poses and stretching activities. Try and follow the moves and instructions carefully.

Have a go at making your own salt dough by following the recipe below.
You could then make some of the animals from the story 'Percy the Park Keeper'.
Making salt dough is a really fun and easy activity for kids and the chances are you will have all of the ingredients in the cupboard ready to go on a rainy day. Children will love using their imaginations to create all sorts of exciting objects (although simple shapes do seem to work best) and hours of fun painting their creations, but do take care to remind little ones that the salt dough is not edible.
Makes 1 ball
Prep 10 minutes
Cook 3 hours
1 cupful of plain flour (about 250g)
1. Preheat the oven to its lowest setting and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
2. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Add the water and stir until it comes together into a ball.
3. Transfer the dough to a floured work surface and shape into your chosen model. You can roll it out and cut out shapes, numbers or letters using biscuit cutters, or make any kind of model you can think of. We made some fruit and veg shapes plus cupcakes for a teddy bear’s picnic.
4. Put your finished items on the lined baking sheet and bake for 3 hrs or until solid.
5. Leave to cool and then paint.
Joe Wicks is very popular with some of the older children. He is doing sessions each week that last for 30 minutes. You can also access 5 minute sessions for younger children on You Tube. Follow the link below to access his physical workouts.
After reading the story 'Percy the Park Keeper' we would like you to think about how you could help to feed the birds in your garden. We would like you to either follow the link below to make the simple bird feeder, use Google to research how to make a different bird feeder or design your own. We would like you to use simple materials that you have around your home and be creative in how you use them.
We hope the birds enjoy your creations!
