This week we are continuing to focus on writing informal letters. Use the resources you were given last week to support your learning this week.
Read the chapters above on the days you need to. You can pause the slide show on each page.
Walt: To identify and name the main parts of the human circulatory system, and describe
the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood
Last week we were learning about the function of the heart. Hopefully, you were able to work your way through the Power Point and carry out any activities you needed to. Your final task will be to write an information text about how the heart works. We have included lot's of resources and website links that will help you. If you have finished your information text, read through it and make sure you have included all information needed.
Have you set it out using the features needed? If not, use a different colour pen to edit and up-level your text.
We have also included some fun activities that you might like to try out at some point during the week. We would love to see pictures of your learning and you doing the fun activities if you choose to.
Activity - Standing up for Myself
Friends are fun to be with and can sometimes help us if we’re feeling unhappy. Friends can sometimes be unkind, too. They might even ask us to do things that we think are risky.
Being able to stand up for yourself is an important skill that you can work at and get better at - just like doing maths, drawing, sport or writing. Practice makes perfect!
Here are some things that we can do if a friend is asking us to do something risky:
Stand firm - say why you don’t think it’s a good idea
Be friendly and polite
Look confident (relaxed body and arms)
Repeat your ideas ('stuck cd' technique)
Relaxed body language
Make eye contact when you speak
Walk away if necessary - but as a friend
Don’t get personal
Make an Assertiveness Manual - draw some simple pictures to advertise assertiveness skills - use the ideas above or make up your own.

We all know how important it is to keep moving and exercise regularly. We know how hard that is at the moment but we don't want you to stop moving for too long so here is a list of websites you can use to get your heart pumping, your body moving and your brain working. You don't have to do them all every day; you only have to choose one.
Don't forget Joe Wicks on Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Please send us some pictures of how you are keeping active at home - you could be riding your bike, hula hooping, jumping on the trampoline or simply doing something from one of the web links below. Whatever it is you are doing, we would love to see it.
