Times are hard for everyone, the most important thing is to look after your own mental health and help your family to do the same. 

We will post enough work so your children can find tasks they'll enjoy -  but we aren't expecting families to be doing all of it!   Do what's right for you and your circumstances.

In terms of learning, the priority is to keep reading and number tasks going whenever you can, these things will make it easier to return to learning once school re-opens.

You should all feel really proud of the learning that you are achieving at home. Well done! Please continue to email it to:

Programming using small steps (decomposition) 

There is a handy video about how to use Scratch Online at that you might to watch before using it yourself and trying out the ideas on the video. 

Programming is is all about breaking instructions into small steps, called decomposition. This sheet here has a hand jive activity that you might want to try instead of the scratch one. You can record your sequence either on a video or on a sheet like this one that you could print out yourself or make a copy of to describe your sequence and repeat it. Do send in your video if you make one as we'd love to see it!


As an extension to this task, you might want to have a look at
