Physical Education 

Create your own indoor routine!
  1. Pick any six of these exercises. If you're not sure how to do one of these exercises just use Youtube to show you.
  2. Do one exercise ten times then change exercise.
  3. Once you get to the end you should be pretty tired
  4. Take a minute to drink some water, then do it again
  5. Try to do a full round of exercises, five times.
 
1. Mountain Climbers - Get into a push-up position and then alternate bringing your knee to your elbow.  The idea is to move fast and work up a sweat!

2. Bear Crawls - Palms and feet flat on the floor, arch your back so that you look like a mother bear. Try walk across the room and back. 

3. Star Jumps - Stand tall and then explosively jump into the air, expanding your legs and your arms so that you look like a large “X” in the air. 

4. Push Ups - Straightforward and to the point. Just be sure your hands are in line with your chest, your back is flat and your bum isn’t arched in the air. 

5. Sit Ups - Feel free to tuck your toes under the sofa or coffee table if you need a bit of support, or, ask your parents to hold your feet and vice versa. 

6. Burpees - Mr Wilson's favourite! Start with a jump up, then drop to a plank, add a push-up, and then jump back up. It should be one fluid motion and try to not pause between repetitions. Make it a bit easier by opting out of the push up if you need to.

7. Squats - To do this one, stand with your feet shoulder’s width apart, and do deep knee bends. Make sure keep your knees behind your toes and your arms out straight.

8. Leg Raises - Lay on your side or on your back and with lift your legs without bending at the knee. Try to hold at the top. This works your lower abdominals, but be careful to not let your lower back arch.

9. Lunges - Step forward and bend your front knee to a 90-degree angle. The goal is to have your back knee touch the ground without letting your front knee extend past your toes. 

10. Planks - Elbows on the floor and balanced on your tiptoes, go eye-to-eye with your parents and see who can last the longest. 30 seconds is considered the gold standard. 

11. Jumping Jacks - You all know how to do this!

12. Butterfly Kicks - Lay flat on your back, and extend your legs straight out. Imagine a swimmer, and begin to flutter kick your legs without bending at the knee. Start with your feet high off of the floor, as the move gets more difficult the closer the action is to the floor.

Religious Eduction

During this week I would like you to look at the 12th Station of the Cross, if you can't find the sheet I gave you, just Google an image. What is it called? What is the prayer we say for it? 

Whilst the Cruxific isn't always the most comfortable image for Catholics to look at it is important to remember that Jesus suffered and died for our salvation. You CAN'T have resurecction and all the hope and joy that it brings (and it does) without first going through the crucifiction. 

My task for you is to think of time you might have suffered in order to get something better in your life. How did it feel when things got hard? What did you do to make them better? How did you feel when you came out the other side and everything got better? Draw a picture or a cartoon strip for me that tells me the story.

As you have the instructions to say the Rosary, please try to pray it every morning and think of those who are lonely, sick and working to provide health care for the world. I say my Rosary at 09:00, whilst we and not physically together, we can be togther in spirit through prayer. Moreover, don't forget to say your 12:00 Angelus!

Hi Year 4, Mr Wilson here.

Now, I knew you'd all be missing my fun lessons and activities....right....RIGHT!? So, each week I will be using this page to set activities and tasks for you to complete at home.

These activities are on top of the pack that went home with you and the aim is to stop you from missing anything that would have been taught over the next few months.

As I said to you all before we split up, I have loved this year so far and Mrs Mulvey and I can't thank you enough for all of your hard work!

We miss seeing your faces and hearing your voices but we will all be back together soon!.

New tasks will be uploaded each week on a Friday. 
God Bless

At each station, please reflect on how Our Lord would have felt (sad doesn't count) and do one good thing per station as a thank you for the sacrifice Jesus made for us.

Please find below instructions on how to pray the Rosary for children. While praying it would be a good idea to think of those who are lonely, sick and working to provide health care for the world. If you do not have a set of rosary beads remember God gave you ten fingers!
