Week 1 – Friday, 4th February, 2022

Today’s topic is: Setting Goals


  • Set yourself some outdoor goals that you can complete. Time or score this task and record your time/score. e.g. bouncing a ball, running to and from the letterbox, skipping without stopping etc.
  • Repeat your activities later in the day, can you beat your earlier time/score?
Maths Game: Creative Counting/Outdoor Maths

For today’s maths lesson, go outside into your yard and count how many of the things below you can see:

  • birds
  • trees
  • flowers
  • pavers
  • kids’ toys
  • tables and chairs
  • animals
  • transport

🌼 flowers = 2 points
🦜 birds = 3 points
🌳 trees = 4 points
🐱🐠🐔🐶 animals = 5 points
🚗🚚🛴🚲 transport = 6 points


  1. Add together combinations of points (e.g. add the points from birds with points from transport, 3 (birds) + 6 (transport) = 9)
  2. Multiply combinations of points
  3. Use your points to come up with many other maths problems, this may include subtraction, division, or a combination of all of them!


Set yourself a reading goal. How long can you read uninterrupted (reading stamina)? Can you beat this time each day?

Set yourself a goal to help another person each day. How could you record what you did?
