HEALTH AND FITNESS WEEK - DAY 4

Date: 9th Jul 2020 @ 8:41am

Good morning everyone!

I absolutely loved seeing your Yoga pictures yesterday. There were some amazing efforts across school and at home in the Washing Basket Challenge - it is safe to say that I did not win with my wonderful score of 4. Congratulations to Miss Southern who won the teachers competition - she scored 27!

Today's activities

1) Activity Bingo

Remember to try and tick off as many activities as you can! I've seen some great photos of your activities at home so far.

2) Mindfulness Day

Being healthy is not just about looking after your body, it's about looking after your mind. Although exercise is one of the best things you can do to keep a healthy mind, it is also important to be mindful and take time to think about the world around you - something which can be very difficult with the pace of modern life and the lure of technology/screens. 

Here are some activities which can help us to be mindful, maybe you could try one today.

Click here for more details on these activities.

Some other activities: 

1) Yoga is also an excellent activity for both your mind and your bodies. If you enjoyed it yesterday, try this:

2)Meditation is a nice way to relax and relieve anxiety after a busy day:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWOHcGF1Tmc

3) Colouring! Spend 15-20 minutes colouring simple patterns. This is a great way to focus your mind on a relaxing task.

4) Turn your phones off and go on a nice walk - what sounds can you hear?

 

Activity 2 - Horizontal Rock Climbing

 

Find as many pairs of clean shoes or socks and scatter them across your carpet like grips on a rock climbing wall.

Can you try to get across the carpet by only placing your hands and feet on the shoes/socks? 

You could challenge each in your house by making tricky routes for them to pass through.

For an extra challenge - try and keep your body as low to the floor as possible when moving. Can you try and make a course around your whole house? You could be creative with what you use for grips - phone cases, shin pads, books, coffee cup lids angel.

Try and make it as long/tricky as possible and send me what you have done!yes

Home Olympics Challenge - Day 4 - Star Jump Challenge

This challenge is simple as it only includes one movement, however it will test your stamina and quick footwork.

How many can you complete in one minute? Keep a record of your scores to complete tomorrow. 

I will try my attempt this morning and then post the teacher scores later on in the day - keep posted!

 

Good luck everyone and have a great day!

 

Mr Horsley

 

 

 

Have a great, active day everyone. Keep sending in your pictures and videos.

Good Morning Doves! 

I was so impressed with your research and information on Doves yesterday! Don't forget to keep your work safe and bring it all back in September. 

Todays Tasks: 

Today's tasks focus on wellbeing, our Growth Mindset and goals for the future. 

Task 1

Throughout lockdown, you have all shown how motivated and determined you are to continue with your work, showing a consistent Growth Mindset. Today, I would like you to create a poster all about Growth Mindset. Think about how you can have a  growth mindset and what you can say to motivate yourself. Also, think about the flipside of this and what would be negative things that could be said in the same situation. Here is an example:

Task 2: 

  1. Think about your goals for next year – what would you like to achieve? Split a piece of paper into two columns and label them ‘goals’ and ‘actions’. Think about what your goals and what actions you will need to make to achieve them.

Here is an example:

Doves - New Class Blog - 7.7.20

Date: 6th Jul 2020 @ 8:10pm

Good morning everyone,

I loved getting to know you all yesterday, I found out so many interesting facts about you all through your brilliant posters! It seems like Pizza is loved in our class (my next task is to find out what we like on our pizzas - NOT pineapple for me! I wonder if any of you like pineapple pizza). 

Today's task: 

We are in the Dove class. What can you find out about Doves? Search on the Internet or look in a book and find out what you can about this wonderful bird. Then present your findings. You could draw a picture of a Dove, write a paragraph or some sentences about them, brainstorm facts or make a fact file.

One interesting fact about Doves is that they belong to the same bird family as pigeons! 

Remember to keep any work you complete, all of our work on Doves will go on the front door of our classroom :) 

Here are some ideas:

Good morning Doves!

I am so excited to welcome you to your new blog and your new class! 

Over the next two weeks, I will be setting you some taks to complete at home so I can learn lots more about you! Anything that you complete at home, please blog it - I would love to read and see them all. I would love for you to bring them in in September so that I can display them in class so make sure to keep them safe :)

Getting to know each other:

This week, I will be ringing home to say Hi! This will be a great chance for you to ask any questions which you may have. Next week, I wll also meet with you all over zoom. If you haven't had an email with a date and time, please mention this when I call. 

 

Today's Task:

Today I would like you to create a poster all about you! You could put a picture in the middle and create sections about your family, your hobbies, your favourite things and anything else that you would like to share.

Here are some examples to help you out! 

Take a picture and blog your poster when you have finished. Remember, we need to keep safe online so we don’t want any personal details on the blog.

Here is a little bit about me: 

- My favourite animal is a turtle (interesting fact, on holiday last year in Mexico, I had the opportunity to swim with turtles!). 

- My favourite colour is dark green!

- My birthday is on the 1st January (New Years Day!). 

- I have two brothers, one older - Ryan (he lives in America) and one who is younger - Lewis. 

- I have one dog, his name is Rocco.

This week is also Health and Fitness Week. Everyday we will set a separate task on the blog for you to complete at home.

Doves - Home Learning - 3rd July

Date: 2nd Jul 2020 @ 9:53pm

Good morning Doves!

Today is an extremely sad day as it is our last day together as Doves Class. I have loved having the pleasure to teach you all (some of you for two years) and I have so many fond and treasured memories (hopefully you do too!). From the start of the year, all the way to the very strange end, you have shown amazing resilience, determination and positivity through it all - I couldn't be any prouder! 

I have so many memories but my top 3 from this year (if i HAD to choose) would be: 

- Our Music lesson - listening to you all sing 'Make you feel my love' - I still have the videos! 

- The fun we had at the Titanic Museum - including the part where we walked around a building 2/3 and took a detour to find the building for our lunch. 

- All of our conversations from our Happy Friday discussions (I will post you one last discussion today - make sure you join in!) 

Hopefully, thinking about all of these made you smile :)

Every day she comes into school with a beaming smile on her face. She has continued to demonstrate her excellent attitudes towards all aspects of school life, getting full marks in her arithmetic and developing a new love of rounders (even the running part!). I am super proud of you Chloe! Keep it up :)

Bubble 7a - Raft Building

Date: 25th Jun 2020 @ 1:52pm

If we can’t go to Robinwood, let’s bring them to us! (Sort of!)

Over the past two days in Bubble 7, we have been working hard to create our own rafts. We used a range of materials to ensure that our raft would float on water and we could save our little toy. 

Well done to Amy, Lucy and Alfie who successfully saved their toy!

 

Bubble 7a - I have a Dream!

Date: 25th Jun 2020 @ 10:14am

Over the past 2 weeks Bubble 7 have been working hard to write their own ‘I have a dream speech’ inspired by Martin Luther King. We discussed recent world events and the future world we would like to live in. I am so proud of the work created!

 

Here are our speeches attached below, make sure you have a read!
