Friends, Faith and Lifelong Learning

Home Statutory School Parents Classes Community

There are 16 activities shown below in the grid which reflect ‘Friends, Faith and Lifelong Learning’. Try to complete 2 or 3 each week and spread the work over the half term so it is ready to be handed in during the last week of the half term—week beginning 11th February.


Use everyday items to build a small bridge—how much weight can it hold?

2. Complete at least one Mathletics activity a week.

(The tasks I have assigned match the topic we are doing in class).

3. Think of (or find) a poem, story, film or song that makes you feel good.

Write about why it makes you feel good.

4. Learn the French words for some emotions, e.g. peur, colère.

You could make a poster to explain one of  the words, with phrases in which you may use it.

5. Light a candle for Candlemas and write a prayer of hope for 2019.

6. Find out about modern Norway, Sweden or Denmark. Create a fact file about your chosen country.

7. Complete one Bug Club activity or book each week.

8. Practise your times tables on TT Rockstars (or alternative) for 30 minutes a week.

9. Ask your family and friends to tell you what they do when they are feeling a bit down. How do they keep themselves well? Try out a few of their ideas to see which ones might work for you.

10. To mark the Chinese New Year, use junk modelling to create a Chinese dragon!

11. Make a ‘vlog’ to explain to younger children how to use the Internet safely. What are the dos and don’ts that they should know?

12. Do some research on healthy sleep habits. Choose something that you can do to improve your sleep. Try it for one week to see if it makes a difference.

13. Write a ‘thank you’ letter for one of your Christmas gifts or just write a letter to someone you have not seen for a while. It should be at least one side of A4 and include descriptive details about your Christmas holidays.

14. Carry out Six Secret Acts of Kindness.

There are lots of ideas online for things that you can do.

15. Make a Viking helmet, shield or longhouse. You can make it out of whatever you like—card, papier-mâché, Lego, even cake!

16. Visit the supermarket and conduct a survey of ten different fruits and vegetables to find out where they are from.

Can you find out where each ingredient in your dinner comes from?
