Physical Education 
– Make informed choices to maintain your health and well-being, including your screen-time and sleep routine. – Ensure you eat a healthy range of foods and not too much ‘junk’ food. Think of healthy recipes to cook with your family. – Go on family walks, runs and participate in local community events. (You’ll need your strength for Dovedale) 
Group work:  
-Look for opportunities to practise group work at home, such as baking a cake together, with one person reading the recipe and the other weighing out the ingredients, or collaborating with siblings or friends on making a LEGO model etc. Independence:  – Show responsibility in managing daily tasks and learning, individually and in a team.  -Prepare your school bags, make a learning space in your home. Concentration:   
-Improve concentration skills by playing family games that involve focusing on the task in hand, such as Scrabble, Bananagrams, Monopoly, UNO or even chess.  Communication skills:  
-Encourage your child’s communication skills by making plenty of time to talk as a family, such as over the dinner table. Open conversations- How? Why? When? Then? 
Create a scrapbook over the summer – create illustrations, symbols and mini paragraphs about key events to share when you return to school. -Develop a dance routine or rap about our BH values that you can share with younger children now that you’ll be the eldest in the school. -Draw, sing, write, perform, sew, build items that represent you- your teachers would love to see this when you return.
