In English, we are going to begin the week by learning about inspirational sporting heroes. These are people who play sport at the highest, elite level because of their strong understanding of how to eat healthily, stay healthy and exercise correctly.
Firstly, can you make a list of sporting heroes that you know of?
After, write down what links they have/what they have in common. You should be able to think of at least three things.
Have a look at the document attached.
This will give you some information about British sporting heroes. Again, think about and identify what these people have in common. Why do you think they are playing their sport at the highest, elite level? What personality traits do they have?
This video is a short clip showing Cristiano Ronaldo’s training routine. Pay attention to what he says and the various exercises he does. You will notice he works on all areas of his body as well as his stamina and endurance.
Your activity is to produce a fact file about a famous sporting hero of your choice. You need to focus on information relating to their exercise, health and diet. Use the internet as your primary source of information. I would like it if you had a drawing of your sporting hero in the middle of your fact file with facts around the outside. I have attached an example below for you to refer to.
This week you are going to extend your understanding of fractions and mixed numbers by adding and subtracting fractions.
Today you are going to apply your knowledge of factors to simplify mixed numbers and improper fractions.

Firstly, answer these questions in your book using just your ideas and your own opinions.
Why do you think exercise is so important?
What benefits does it have?
The three videos below will tell you more and they explore the science behind the health benefits of exercising.
Once you have watched the videos, please look at the document attached below. Joe Wicks will tell you even more about the health benefits of exercising!
Your task is to produce a poster with facts, information and pictures about why it is important to
Use what you have learnt in this lesson so far and your own research. You should mention at least 7 benefits in your poster.
