Good morning everyone,

Our theme today for home-school learning is summer.

Here are some activities to choose from:

Read the following poems about summer (they may also give you some ideas for your own poems):

Summer Days

I’m looking for a hot spot.

A what spot?

A hot spot.

I’m looking for a hot spot.

To lie out in the sun.

I’m looking for a hot spot

To play and have some fun.

I’m looking for a hot spot

To hit a ball and run.

Oh, I’m looking for a hot spot.

A what spot?

A hot spot.

I’m looking for a hot spot

Now summer has begun.

Summer Song

 By the sand between my toes,

By the waves behind my ears,

By the sunburn on my nose,

By the little salty tears

That make rainbows in the sun

When I squeeze my eyes and run,

By the way the seagulls screech,

Guess where I am? At the ……!

By the way the children shout

Guess what happened? School is ……!

By the way I sing this song

Guess if summer lasts too long:

You must answer Right or ……!

 John Ciardi

Good luck!

PE 13th of August 2020

Hi everyone, hope you liked PE yesterday and ready for another activity today. Next are 3 games easy to follow you can do at home. Have fun.


Game 1: Pirate Ship

Roles : Chose a captain to give instructions to rest of players. All players start with 3 points. Every time a player makes a mistake loses 1 point. First to zero loses, change captain. Captains instructions are as follow:

Port – crew jump to the left (or stretch left arm).

Starboard – jump to the right (or stretch right arm).

Stern – Jump backwards (or stretch arms up).

Bow – jump forwards (or stretch arms forward).

Climb the rigging – pretend to climb a rope ladder.

Man overboard – one star jump (or move your knees)

Scrub the deck – crouching down, pretending to clean the floor (or lean forward, head or knees).


You can use as many instructions as you want from 2 to 7 to adapt your needs.


Game 2: Opposites


Get a ball or some socks rolled in a shape of a ball. Stand in a circle with one person in the center who has the ball.

Center person says catch or drop when throwing the ball.

If catcher does incorrect movement they lose 1 of 3 points.

When you get to 0 change person in middle. You can also try new instructions – head ball, kick ball, “slap” ball…


Game 3: Bucket Rounders

Resources – 3 balls or rolled socks, a bucket, 4 markers (anything you can safely put on floor.


1 batter, 1 or 2 fielders.

Bowler (Fielder) throws 3 balls to batter who can volley, bat or kick ball away.

Fielders and batter must not move until all 3 balls are out on field.

After third ball is played batter then runs around marked space trying to return to starting point before all 3 balls have been returned to the bucket.

Is the fielder job to return balls to bucket before batter returns to starting point.


Remember to keep yourself save and be aware of surroundings. Make shore you have a safe area to play and have fun.
