Today you are going to be writing a letter to promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
As a recap from yesterday’s lesson, briefly answer the questions below in your book:
What does it mean to be healthy?
How can we stay healthy?
What should we avoid to stay healthy?
This is Stanley.
As you can see, he has a very unhealthy diet. He also never exercises and his parents are worried about his overall health.
They need your help!
Make some brief notes in your book in response to this question:
What do we need to tell Stanley so that he changes his unhealthy habits?
Here are some features you should include in your letter:
Below is some guidance for how to structure your letter. I have also produced an example letter if you are struggling for initial ideas.
Introduction: Why are you writing this letter?
Main body: Two or three paragraphs making your points clear. Ensure your points are supported with facts.
Conclusion: A summary of your letter.
I am writing this letter because your parents are worried, scared and anxious about your
lifestyle choices. I will convince you to change your habits!
Without any doubt, if you continue with your poor diet, your arteries will become clogged, damaged and weak due to the high fat and cholesterol in your diet. By eating much healthier, you will gradually reduce this risk and ensure oxygen can travel around your body. Do you really want blocked arteries?
To conclude, it is paramount that you read this letter carefully and understand the benefits of
changing your unhealthy lifestyle.
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.
This afternoon you will be making your own exercise timetable. To begin with, write down the answers to these questions in your book:
How much exercise do you do on a typical day?
What exercises do you do the most?
Below is some guidance supported by science:
Children and adolescents ages 6 through 17 years should do 60 minutes (1 hour) or more of moderate-to-vigorous intensity physical activity each day, including daily cardio – and activities that strengthen bones (like running or jumping) – 3 days each week, and that build muscles (like climbing or doing push-ups) – 3 days each week.
Think about your own circumstances and answer these questions in your book:
What cardio activities could you do?
What muscle building activities could you do?
The videos below will give you some ideas about what exercises you could do at home!
When producing your exercise timetable, it is important it is personal to you and it is ‘smart’.
Reading: Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record. You can now also go on: https://www.myon.co.uk/login/index.html to do your online reading and quizzes too! We can see how many books you have read and how you are doing on your quizzes. So go on, let’s get reading!
Please practise your spellings daily. This week’s spellings are below. You will need to see which ones you want to work on. If you can spell all of the Year 3/4 words, then do the Year 5/6. We will be focusing on 10 spellings every week. On Friday, get someone at home to do your spelling test with you!
