Task 2




Listening to music stimulates more parts of the brain than any other human function.

What better way to get our brain and body in gear for learning?


This song is great for general alertness and is good fun to sing!



Can you stamp your feet, pat your tummy and rub your head at the appropriate moment in time to the music, and then keep them all going at the same time?

Don’t forget to keep singing while you do this!



What ‘body rhythm’ of your own can everyone think of to accompany the song?

There’s a whole host of things you could do, from hand-rubbing to cheek-popping.



Your friends and family will definitely enjoy watching a video of your performance of this song, complete with actions!

We would love to see it too!


Food technology


This week we are making a healthy sandwich.

It could be for you or someone in your family.



Design - Think about what you would like to put in your sandwich, you might need to talk to your adult to check what is available.


What sort of bread will you use?  Do you want any spread?  What fillings could you use?  Do you like salad in your sandwich?


Draw and label a diagram to show your sandwich design.


Make - make and eat your sandwich.

Write a set of instructions of how you made your sandwich? (remember instructions need a title, introduction, what you will need, what to do).


Evaluate - What did you like/dislike?

What would you do differently next time
