Day 9 accomplished

What a nice treat it is to have the sun back out. I hope you’re all enjoying getting active every day. We are already nearly 1/3 of the way through May’s mammoth ‘1 mile a day in May’ challenge!

A BIG well done to Nathaniel (Year 3), who has been out riding his bike to the park with Dad. What a fun way to be active, Nathaniel!

Day 7 completed of our ‘1 mile a day in May’ challenge

And… just like that, we’ve reached the end of Day 7 in our ‘1 mile a day in May’ challenge! Time seems to be flying by as quickly as you’re all moving! Keep up the excellent effort everyone– it takes real perseverance to get out every day, especially when the weather is so unpredictable. Everyone is working so hard to be active each day whilst raising money for the school at the same time!

Here is Isla (Year 1) on Day 6 of the challenge. She walked to the park and had lots of fun playing and swinging on the zip-line with her big brother before walking back home.

Here is Abbaas (Year 3) out and about walking to complete his ‘1 mile a day’ for Day 6- what a great action shot!

Year 3 completed their ‘1 mile a day’ today (Day 7) like the active superheroes they are!

Your teachers have been busy too getting active for Day 7.

Thursday 6th May

Hello!!!!!! Welcome to your blog lessons for today. You should have received a pack of all of the paperwork for today’s lessons. Please carry out the activities that you can and send the completed work into school on Friday 7th May.

Let’s get the day started by getting our brains and bodies moving with a quick Wake Up, Shake Up session – continuing with our sea theme

Literacy

Have a look at some of the poems related to under the sea.

Now it is time for you to become a poet. Make up your own poem and then, independently, have a go at writing it down so that we can share it with the rest of the class. (Write your poem on the my under the sea shape poem worksheet)

Maths

We are in our final week of To 20 and Beyond. Watch the session 5 video – Tangrams. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/to-20-beyond-week-3/

Once you have watched the video, have a go at completing the activity (this is included in your pack, as well as some extra tangram activities)

Topic –

This week in our topic lessons, we are focusing on pollution in our oceans and how we can look after the environment, in particular by recycling things from in and around the house.

Watch the video how we can keep plastics out of our ocean.

Click here to find out some facts about pollution in our seas.


Take a look at this video all about recycling.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z9p9j6f

You can either create a poster about recycling or plastic pollution in our oceans, complete the recycle sort worksheet (included in your pack) write a letter to our MP about plastic pollution or recycle some items in your house, by making something out of the items.

Just for fun –

Floating and sinking – Have a look around your home and find 2 things that you think will float and 2 things that you think will sink. Ask a grown up to help you test if you are right.

Fishy Instruments –

Shark mask – don’t forget the sharp, pointy teeth.

Song time – who doesn’t love a bit of baby shark! Enjoy! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XqZsoesa55w

Finally, finish the day with a story about a shark in the dark. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=m824rcGp_GI

End of year expectations

On Friday we will be sending home the end of year expectations for Reception children. These are targets that we are working on throughout the children’s academic year. The ones highlighted, on your child’s copy, are the ones that they are currently working towards. If you can support us by also working on these at home we would be extremely grateful. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Mission complete for Day 3

A huge WELL DONE to everyone who has managed to complete their ‘1 mile‘ today despite the weather!

A special mention and well done must go to Jack and Alice– it looks like you are having a wonderful time out and about. You are both leading the way to help encourage us all (children and staff) at Woodthorpe J.I School with this challenge.

Launching in… 3… 2… 1… Woodthorpe’s 1 mile a day in May!

Today is the first day of our BIG, month-long challenge- Woodthorpe’s 1 mile a day in May! Who has been out moving for a mile today? I wonder if any of you have managed to get anyone to sponsor you already?

It’s not too late if you haven’t been out yet. Remember, you can walk, run, scoot, cycle or move in any way you choose! (One mile is approximately a brisk 15 minute walk.)

Many of the staff at Woodthorpe are taking on the challenge too. Here are some of us on Day 1 of the challenge.

Let’s see if we can get even more pictures up for Day 2 of the challenge tomorrow!

Please ask parents/ carers to email in any pictures you have of yourself taking part to y3homeschool@woodthorpe-school.com and include in the email that you are happy for your pictures to be shown on blog/ twitter sites.
