Wednesday 8th April

Good morning everybody,

How did you get on with your exercise challenge? Did you manage to get you whole household involved? I have heard that some of you have been very persuasive with getting everybody to join in, well done! 

Today, myself and Mrs Walker thought that you might like a task that is Easter-themed, as it is Easter on Sunday! We would like you to decorate an egg (or anything of similar shape). You can decorate just the egg itself, or you could even create a background for it, and really set the scene. Here are some examples for you:

If you would like to share your results with us, you could upload pictures of your creations on Tapestry.

Thank you

Mrs Taylor and Mrs Walker 

Happy Holidays

Happy new week Leaders,
 
It is officially the start of the Easter holidays. To have some fun during this time, we are teaming up with Discoverers and are going to be completing the same, exciting activities. 
We will set a fun activity: today, Wednesday and Friday. For today, myself and Mrs Walker thought you might like to become the teacher. We would you like you to plan an exercise routine, like Joe Wicks has been doing each morning, or a dance routine. We want you to teach your family the routine and get them to perform it for you. If they are feeling brave, they may let you film it and upload it on to tapestry for staff to see your hard work. 
This can last as long or as short as you like, and you can spend as much time as you need rehearsing and preparing together. I have uploaded a Joe Wicks video below, to give you some inspiration.
 
 
Good luck

Happy Holiday Pet Show

Now we all love having a pet.
Perhaps you have a dog. Maybe you have a cat or a hamster. It is possible that you may have a horse or some chickens.
Worms make great pets and I know that lots of you just adore woodlice. Tigers and alligators are tricky to keep as pets and prefer to be in the wild
Some of these can be difficult to handle and you may prefer an imaginary pet, a toy or a brother or sister.

Your mission for the holidays,should you choose to accept it is to hold a pretend Pet Show. Team Sleights will be doing this at home too.
Here are a few ideas:
Make a poster to advertise when and where your Pet Show will take place.

Plan the categories for your show. Here are some ideas:

Pet with the smiliest face
Pet most like its owner
Pet with the waggiest tail
Agility Course/obstacle course

Best Trick
Best dancer
Best singer
Best fancy dress
These are just ideas. As always your ideas are the best.

Make rosettes or medals as awards for pets and handlers.

Someone with a clipboard will need to be the judge.

Try out an app called Piccollage if you haven’t used it before. It lets you collect and arrange photographs and text.
It’s fun for making posters.It’s free.

You could also make a model of your pet from cardboard tubes,fabric and bits.

We would absolutely love to see photographs and video of your Holiday Pet Show.

Pop over to Tapestry to see some videos and photographs for ideas 

Happy Learning

 

Friday 3rd April

Good morning everyone,

Its Friday, hurray and what a busy week we’ve all had.

We have been amazed and overwhelmed to see all the activities you have been doing this week. We really are so proud of you all! Please keep sending us your messages/pictures and videos via Tapestry – we love to see/hear about what you’re doing!

We hope you are enjoying our stories and songs too. Remember, if you have a favourite just ask (if we’ve got it, we will read it!).

Today, check out Mrs Hann’s storytelling/story writing activity on Tapestry using Story Cubes – they are so much fun!

Whatever you do today, keep in touch and look out for tonight’s Bedtime Story.

Keep smiling 🙂

Good morning Leaders and Discoverers

We have been so impressed with all the things you have been doing with your families this week so, once you have finished off any activities that need completing, we are asking everyone in the school to have a go at telling and writing stories.

Have a look at Mrs Hann’s video of her story cubes and then have a go at telling a story using the cubes to help you. You might want to make up a story to tell to someone else in your family using the cubes and then ask them to tell a story using the cubes too. You will be surprised how many different stories you could make using the same cubes.

If you would like to share your stories with us that would be brilliant; you could video your story telling or write your story, if you wish, and upload it to Tapestry. Can’t wait to see them.

Happy story telling!

Mrs Walker and Mrs Taylor

I’m so pleased to see you’re beginning to share exciting things on Tapestry.  I’d like to set a challenge for anyone who has not yet posted to have a go today.    This could be a message, a photo, a video or even just a reply to this message.  Let’s see if we can get everyone involved. If you haven’t yet signed up please send an e-mail to Mr Grason to join.
 
English – you should have given someone your instructions to try yesterday.  Did they work?  Had you missed anything out?  I would like you to use today to make any changes that you may have needed and check that your steps all include imperative verbs.
 
Maths – as the weather is nice again today, we are going to mix our time and science together.  I’d like you to all go out for a walk today and measure your heart rate every 4 minutes (you might need to take a paper and pencil to record your results) for the duration of your walk.  Once you have returned home, use your results to produce a line graph recording your results.
 
Topic – if you have collected some resources, have a go at making your Victorian light from your design.
 
Get our for some fresh air and I look forward to seeing your results.
 
Happy recording.

Good morning Discoverers,

After completing your bar chart yesterday, today I would like you to start a new task, related to time and statistics. I would love you to create an obstacle course for you and your family. It can be as long or as short as you like, and you will need to time everybody’s performance. Record names and timings within a table as we will use this information tomorrow. 

Now that you have created your meal or snack for your family, I would like you to finalise your instructions. Yesterday, you were able to determine if any changes needed to be made to your original writing. Today, I would like you to make the changes that are needed, and then write up your finalised set of instructions. I would love to see the results on Tapestry, so that I can try out your instructions for myself. 

You have now finished writing your clues for your treasure hunt. Today, place the clues in your hiding places and hand the first one to your family. Watch them try to find the treasure, and check out if they manage to get the clues quickly, or if they struggle because you’ve been so cryptic. 

Good luck,

Mrs Taylor

Good morning Learners and good morning Adventurers!

It is Thursday (already!) we hope you are all well and happy this morning!

We have decided to team up today in some activities with a common theme……RAINBOWS.

Here are some suggested activities for you today (See Tapestry for further details).

  • Maths/colour – Go on a colour hunt around your home and garden. Can you find some objects that match the colours in Mrs   Brown’s song?
  • Draw a beautiful rainbow in your purple book. Tell and write a story about a magic rainbow or make a list of the colours you have used.
  • Phonics (Learners Class) – sound buttons today. Keep practising!
  • Music – A new song to learn – I Can Sing a Rainbow. Will anyone be able to sing it back to us on Tapestry?
  • Also, as we didn’t make it on our trip Ryedale Folk Museum have sent us an exciting link to A Museum From Home. Check it out, here’s the link  https://www.ryedalefolkmuseum.co.uk/museumfromhome/

Keep us posted whatever you’re doing today and look out for rainbows!
