Morning! Half term next week so make sure you have a good rest. There will be some activities on here if you get a bit bored!

Physical Activity

  1. Try some of the activities from the Joy of Moving
  2. Go Noodle! Many of the songs and routines you see are here are sung at PGL. This one shows how actions can help you remember many things!

  2. Write a poem about lockdown.

What has it been like for you?

What have you missed?

 What have you enjoyed?

What are you looking forward to?

 Remember poems do not have to rhyme. Think about the atmosphere you are trying to create. I’ve included some poems for you to read to help you.

Think about the layout; some lines might only have one word.
