This week is 'half term' so here are some different types of activities for you to try; you can also make the most of the glorious weather by keeping active!!
Drawing my own shadow - all you need is a piece of chalk and a sunny day! See the document attached below...
Puppet show - use some socks or other material on sticks to make some of your own puppets. Create your own story and let your puppets act out the story. You could put on a show for the rest of your family or, better still, ask them to join in and help you!
A-Z scavenger hunt - this could be in your garden, on a walk with your family or even just in your bedroom/kitchen etc. Look around and find an object that starts with the letter A, then one that starts with B, then C...!
Savoury bake - I know lots of you have been baking cookies, cupcakes etc at home. Now look for a recipe for something that isn't sweet - it could still be something delicious like cheese scones or a pasta bake. Send us a photo, write a blog post about it!
Football skills - have a go at the skills activity I sent by e-mail on Thurs 21st May (via Mrs Short). Everyone could try some of these and you can show us your skills when we see you You could even ask your parents to put a video clip on our Twitter page @BPSSwans

Design and Technology The BBC Bitesize lesson on thursday is all about 'How we build'. Choose one of the following and see if you can use recycled items to build a replica.
> Model of the school. Model of your house. >Model of Stonehenge
Email photos of them to us on Purple Mash email or use firstname.lastname@example.org , we would love to see them.
Reading and writing: This Friday, 8th May, marks the 75th anniversary of VE day - the end of the Second World War in Europe. Read the VE Day 'Daily News' then answer the questions (no peeking at the answers!). Then use what you have learned to write a poem, with a focus on 'celebration' - think about the sounds and sights of the celebrations.
Maths: This week's bitesize lessons have been about multiplying and dividing. Did you use your knowledge of times tables to help? We have set you a times tables matching and memory game on Purple Mash.
Science: Helping plants grow - now spring is here, have you noticed plants are beginning to bud and bloom? The veggies we planted last month are beginning to grow in our gardens and the fields are bursting with daisies and dandelions. Can you remember what plants need to grow well and how they survive? What do you remember about soils from year 3 science? Below are a set of instructions for making compost. With help from a grown up at home, you could make your own compost to help grow plants in your garden, or research plants that grow in different climates.
Picture news VE Day: What is VE day and why is it celebrated?
Science: this week, BBC Bitesize was about States of Matter, which we studied way back in September. You were all very good at working out the correct state for different materials. There's a link to an activity for you (below) and on Purple Mash I've set an activity for you (click on this picture and it should take you there). After you've done it, explore your house to see how many different solids, liquids and gases you can find. Which room has the most gases? Where can you find the runniest liquids? Can some materials be more than one state? Can you remember how materials change between states?
History after the Bitesize lesson on what prehistoric Britain was like, I've found a news story based on the discovery of a dinosaur. There is a reading comprehension for you and the answers too, but please don't peek at them before you've had a go at answering the questions! There are also some other activities to try. Do you know what this photograph shows?
Please go to the Special Picture News for Captain Tom Moore's 100th Birthday.
The question is... How can one person make a big difference?
