This week we are going to think about what it might be like to be a King or Queen. They have to behave a certain way and they might have rules to follow or make rules for others to follow. Have a look at the rules on the sheet and colour in or circle the rules that you would have if you were King or Queen and cross out the ones that you wouldn't have. Then think of your own rules for others to follow in the blank squares!




We are still focusing on looking after ourselves and keeping healthy. This week we are going to look at exercise. Can you think of lots of ways to exercise? Look at the powerpoint or the videos and create a list of things you could do to keep active at home or in the garden during lockdown. Maybe you could use Joe Wicks PE lesson to help!
