Week 6 - commencing 11th May

When you think things are bad,
when you feel sour and blue,
when you start to get mad…

you should do what I do!

Just tell yourself, Duckie,
you’re really quite lucky!

Some people are much more,
oh, ever so much more…
oh, muchly much- much more
unlucky than you!

– Dr. Seuss, Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? (1973)

Hello Year 5!

Thank you everybody for all of your hard work and effort!


Each day, please can you:

Read for at least 10 -15 minutes.

Practise your times tables for 10 to 15 minutes on Times Tables Rock Stars.

Do 30-60 minutes of exercise. Why not have a go at following the netball ideas below?

PE with Derbyshire School Games

The School Games Organiser network and Active Derbyshire are working together to create and publish a weekly programme of activities to help children, just like you, to keep active whilst schools are closed and we are having to stay at home.

This week, they have created a series of activities around 'NETBALL'!

Open the document below to find a daily activity and lots of tips and guidance on how to do it. There's a bit of a quiz to get you started, then each day, you'll find a challenge. If you keep scrolling down, you'll find instructions and helpful diagrams to show you what to do.

Why not involve your family? You can all keep active and play netball together?

Don't forget to send photos of how you get on to year5@overseal.derbyshire.sch.uk  - it's great to see what you are all up to and how you're getting on!
