Other Subjects


On this page you will find lots of interesting learning ideas for you to do linked to the foundation subjects. 

PE

Although it is important to keep everyone safe by staying inside, we still need to keep our bodies healthy. Can you create your own workout routine in the house?  How about putting on the radio and having a dance off? Or even slowing down and doing some yoga?

These websites are great for keeping moving:

Can you divide a piece of paper into two and draw human features on one half and physical features on the other half.

PSHE

Whilst we are at home and things are so different in the world at the minute it is important to take time to think about how we are feeling. Make sure you are taking time to relax and do something you enjoy. If you are missing your friends you can use Purple Mash to send them messages or look on the website for pictures of you and your friend making memories at school. It won’t be long before we are all back together!

Try some of these fun activities with your family:
