Joe Wicks virtual PE – bodycoachtv on

9:30 – 9:50

If you are a Lexia person you must complete Lexia during this time instead of guided reading.

Those of you doing the guided reading, there are questions related specifically to understanding the text and there is a n activity based around a SPaG focus. Try to complete both if you can but if you run out of time do not worry. Where the questions are about the text, there is the letter AF and a number at the end. This just identifies which reading skill is being focussed on and is nothing for you to worry about. The answers are at the bottom of the sheet so that you can mark your work.


LO: to identify acute, obtuse and right angles in shapes

SC1: I can identify angles as acute or obtuse.

SC2: I can compare angles in 2D shapes.

SC3: I can classify 2D shapes using the property of angle



Acute or Obtuse? For each angle shown on the Lesson Presentation, make corresponding arm gesture to show if the angle is acute or obtuse.

Triangle Prove It! Is it possible to draw a right-angled triangle which has another angle which is obtuse? Have a think and see what you would say. When you are ready look at the next slide to see if you are right.

Angles in Triangles: there is a mathematical rule that the interior (inside) angles of a triangle always equal 180 degrees. Therefore, if one angle is 90 degrees then the neither of the other two angles can be obtuse as they both have to be smaller than 90 degrees.

Quadrilateral Prove It! Can a quadrilateral have 2 obtuse angles? Have a think and see what you would say. When you are ready look at the next slide to see if you are right.

Angles in Quadrilaterals: Look how to compare the angles in quadrilaterals, understanding that a trapezium, kite, parallelogram and rhombus have two obtuse angles.

Quadrilateral Angles Activity: Choose your challenge. 1 star is the easiest and 3 star is the hardest. If you choose a challenge and it is too hard, don’t finish it, swap to an easier one. Similarly, if you choose one that is too easy, swap to a harder one. Think about which star challenge I normally give you at school.

If you finish this and you want an extension, I have added one but do not spend ages doing this. Only do the extension is you have time. This will really work on your justification and reasoning which is a very important part of your maths curriculum. Year 4 you should definitely give this a go if you have time.

Angle Statements: As a class, create mathematical statements about quadrilaterals and angles.


Break time/snack time

11:00 – 11:45


How many ideas can I think of?

LO: To generate ideas for growing a plant

SC1) I can decide what options I have for plants that can be grown

SC2) I can record ideas about what can be grown at home

SC3) I can choose my favourite idea and justify my choice



Now we know what plants need to grow, I want you to go back to the website we looked at right back on Monday.

Use an interesting way to display all the possibilities you have for growing something you can eat at home. You may have seeds at home already, or you might know someone who can some or you might be using ideas from the website because you have those foods available to you. Make sure you think carefully about your presentation and making it look colourful and eye catching.

When you have generated all the possibilities, think carefully and discuss which one you will do. You will need the permission of the adult in your house to do this so make sure they agree with your selection. When you have selected make sure you identify this and explain your choice.

11:45- 12:15


Make sure you do at least one sound check and one studio session. Try to get as many right as you can in the fastest time possible. Remember you want to be aiming for less than 6 seconds to answer a question correctly.

12:15- 1:15


1:15- 2:00

Let do it!

LO: to apply my knowledge of plant to grow something I can eat

SC1: I can choose a suitable place to grow my plant

SC2: I can use the appropriate equipment when planting

SC3: I can document my process

Do your planting!



Take photos of each stage that you go through when planting. You will need these photos tomorrow to create an explanation of how to grow your plant. (We know that this will not be a challenge we can evaluate straight away so make sure you photograph what you do when you are planting to show what you have achieved!)

2:00- 2:30

Exercise – e.g. mindfulness yoga, fresh air in the garden, run up and down the stairs seeing if you can get faster every time!


Complete the challenge about plants

If you get less than 8 try again until you get 8 or more.

3:00 – 3:15
