Joe Wicks virtual PE – bodycoachtv on


Take part in our cross-country competition!  Today marks the date where we would usually be taking part in our local derby race at Chiddingstone school.

To mark the occasion, the cross-country team would like to challenge all children to run/jog either 1km or 2km (your choice).

The teachers will award raffle tickets to anyone who takes part, and Mrs Murray has a special prize for the best effort and a prize for the cheeriest photo.

All you have to do is: choose your distance, complete the challenge, then post a photo below with a brief description of the course and conditions (eg were there any hills? was it muddy? what was the weather like?). you have 1 week to get your entries in on our Facebook page!

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 right angles in 2D shapes and recognise 90 degree turns

SC1: I can describe a right angle.

SC2: I can find right angles in 2D shapes.

SC3: I can describe a right angle turn



True or False? Have a go at the quick-fire true or false statements describing properties of 2D shapes, revising angles as a property of shape.

Revision - Angles in Turns: have a look again at the turtle which shows turning through quarter, half, three-quarter and full turns clockwise.

Right Angles: Read the information that explains about right angles. A right angle is an angle measuring ninety degrees, formed by the intersection of two perpendicular lines.

Right Angle Fish: Using the Right Angle Finder Fish to help you complete the activity for today.

Right Angles in 2D Shapes: 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.

Finally, practise performing different turns.


Break time/snack time

11:00 – 11:45

LO: to understand what plants need to grow

SC1: I can identify the things a plant needs to grow

SC2: I can explain what happens when a plant gets these things

Sc3: I can explain what happens to parts of a plant when they do not get these things



Look at this webpage -

Once you have watched the video and read the information, have a go at the filling in the blanks activity and the quiz. Make sure you use the words provided when you fill in the gaps!

Now I want you to use a page in your book to create a fact page about the requirements of plants to help growth. You need a picture of a plant, subheading of what is needed, under the subheading an explanation of what happens when it gets this and what happens when it doesn’t. If you need to do a little extra research to help you with how to word this, then please do so. Remember, neat handwriting, accurate spelling and technical vocabulary. I have attached a plants knowledge organiser to help you with this. Keep hold of it as it will be useful for the other lessons we are doing on this. Look at mine to help you.

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

Life cycle of a plant

LO: to understand and order the stages of the life cycle of a flowering plant.

SC1: I can explain the process of seed dispersal.

SC2: I can understand the processes of pollination, fertilisation and germination.

SC3: I can order the different stages of the life cycle of a flowering plant.



Go to this website:

Watch the introduction to the life cycle of a plant. Then go through the PowerPoint presentation that explains the life cycle of a flowering plant in more detail.

When you are sure of all the stages (you can go through it as many times as you need) I would like you to create a lifecycle. There are 2 levels of challenge. You can either use the sheet and cut out and order the stages of the life cycle or you can create your own. Have a look at mine to see what this could look like. Make sure you are using the scientific language that explains each stage.

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 right angles in shapes:

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

3:00 – 3:15
