PE With Joe

Keep sending in your fantastic work!


Here are this week's home learning activities:

  • Toy Parachute

Learn about air resistance while making an awesome parachute! What you will need: a plastic bag (or light material), scissors, string and a small toy (an action figure would be perfect!)

Step 1: Cut out a large square from your plastic bag or material.

Step 2: Trim the edges so it looks like an octagon (an eight-sided shape).

Step 3: Cut a small whole near the edge of each side.

Step 4: Attach 8 pieces of string of the same length to each of the holes.

Step 5: Tie the pieces of string to the object you are using as a weight.

Step 6: Use a chair or find a high spot to drop your parachute and test how well it worked, remember that you want it to drop as slow as possible.

Challenge: How could you make your parachute fall faster or slower? Can you decorate your parachute?

  • Joe Wicks has been uploading PE videos for children to use! Could you create your own? Record it for your family and friends to do! Remember to include a warm up and a cool down.

Here are some ideas you can put in your workout to get you started: - Star jumps - Push ups - Lunges - Rope climbers

  • Challenge your friends and family to complete your own homemade jigsaw. What you will need: a picture you have drawn or finished colouring page, cardboard and scissors. Take your picture or finished colouring page and stick onto a sheet of cardboard (cereal boxes work well). From here, cut up the image to make your own jigsaw. Try cutting it into smaller pieces to make it more difficult!
  • Phone or Skype a relative or friend with help from someone in your home. Plan some questions you’d like to ask them. If they are an older person, you could ask them about their childhood or the place where they grew up. Draw a picture of them and add speech bubbles to show the things they said.
  • Help an adult to plan a menu for your weekly meals using the food in your fridge, or cupboards. Make a list of any other ingredients you need. Rate every meal out of 10. What was your favourite meal of the week? For bonus points, see if you can limit your food waste.
  • Look carefully at your face in the mirror or the face of someone in your family. Recreate it as a drawing, painting, collage or sculpture. Remember to include the main features like eyes, ears, nose, mouth and hair.
  • Cut out five paper hearts. Write something you are grateful for on each heart. Share your hearts with an adult or relative. Display them and add to them every time you think of something else you are grateful for.
