WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON IS SCREEN-FREE AFTERNOON
3 screen-free activities for you to choose from. Some can be done inside, and some can be done outside, dependant on the weather. This week's 3 activities are:
1) Make a map
Draw a plan or a map of where you live, this could be a bird’s eye view of your garden or a map of the roads near your house. Maybe you would use squared paper or draw lines on your paper. You would need to go outside to check the details.
If it is a plan of your garden you could count how many steps it takes to walk across it or to the end of the garden. Use the number of steps to help you make your plan accurate. You might want to look out of the bedroom window and make a list of all the things you can see then add them to your drawing.
You could make it look like a real map with a key and include houses, gardens and fields. Again, you could count the steps to try and make a scale for your map. Walk around your area and make a sketch of the roads, where they join or turn, include extra features like houses, drives, shops, postboxes, whatever you see.
To make your drawing more attractive you could add pictures of the features, maybe your climbing frame or if it is a map of the road, add your car standing near your house.
Try and be creative, have fun, your drawing could include photographs, cartoon drawings or yourself.
2) Invent your own exercise regime. You can do this by yourself.
If the weather is fine count the steps from your door to another area, perhaps the drive, the garage or the end of the garden.
Make up an exercise for each step,
maybe step 1 - 1 star jumps,
step 2 – 2 hops on each foot.
step 3- bend down to touch your toes 3 times
Make a list for each exercise then check your heart rate, it should be calm and tricky to find. Carry out the whole list once and check your heart rate again. Find out how many repeats you need to get your heart pounding, how many repeats to get out of breath?
If the weather is bad, you could do your exercises indoors, but take care of yourself and your home.
3) Use last half term’s topic to make up a family quiz.
Think of 10 things that your family will know about the work you have been doing.
Make a list of 10 questions, ask some of your family to join you for your quiz.
See who knows the most, make the quiz fun for your family.
Remember....NO COMPUTER SCREENS AND HAVE FUN!
