Each timetable includes an hour’s learning on the core subjects of English and Maths, with sessions for other curriculum coverage and time for reading, breaks, snacks and daily exercise.
*Remember not all days will go to plan and your child might not always be able to sit and work quietly for the allocated time. If needed, allow your child/children to pick and choose which activities they would like to do, or encourage them to focus on just one piece of learning per day.

2.30-3.15 Art
To create a piece of modern art that carries a message about your life.

Instructions: You will need: old newspaper and magazines, A3 paper, glue.

Before you begin your art project, think about:
the things, people, places, that are most important to you
what you hope to do in the future
the people and places you would like to see and visit in the future

Next, look through magazines and newspapers for any photos, illustrations, and sections of text that tie in with your life now and also your ideas of what your life will be like in the future. It might be a single word like ‘CHAMPION’, which reminds you of winning a dance competition, or an animal photo which represents your aspirations of becoming a vet.

Cut out the images and text and group them together to show the progression of your life. You can group them however you feel best suits the theme of your collage, or just to create the most pleasing effect. For instance, you could sketch a simple bare-branched tree, placing the collage pieces on the branches like leaves, or draw a tall sunflower, placing collage pieces up the stem like leaves, with the image of your main goal in the centre of the flower, right at the top.

(Activity adapted from our Modern art article)

Optional parent support:
Help your child to select images and text from magazine and newspapers that reflect their life now and their future goals. Help them to decide how to arrange the images and text into a collage.

Help them to make the links that a picture may represent.
