South Derbyshire Virtual School Games Championship (Monday 6th - Friday 10th July)

The ASP have put together a programme of challenges which makes up a virtual competition championship, to finish off the academic year in the Summer Term. The challenges are simple, adaptable and can be done in a school environment or home environment. The competitions are open from Years 1 to 6, however parents and reception children are more than welcome to give them a go!

 

Each day will have a different challenge themed around a different sport. The competitions are open age, meaning anyone can take part. To enter, an individual must enter their result for the challenge online for it to count. All results will be collated as follows:

  • Results will be compared per year group. For schools submitting multiple entries per year group, an average score will be taken for that year group.
  • After all 5 competitions have finished, schools will be ranked in their position in each year group.
  • An average score will be calculated per school too, regardless of number of entries and their year groups

 

Each competition is a ’60 second challenge’ for ease in comparison

 

Below are 6 competition cards, which make up the virtual championship

 

Each challenge card will have a link at the bottom to submit details and your score. Whether this is done at school or at home, the deadline will be 9pm to submit a score on the day of that respective challenge.

There are a range of prizes to be won for our school, so have fun and take part.

VE day is a day to remember the end of the second World War.  It is a day to remember the bravery and suffering of those who lived during the war and to remember the courage of the soldiers who fought during the war.

The first VE day took place on May 8th 1945, the day after Germany surrendered after 6 years of war.  At 3pm on May 8th 1945, the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, made a speech to announce the end of the war.

On the first VE day, lots of people travelled to London for parades, dancing and fireworks.  Lots of people wore red, white and blue, and waved flags.  There were street parties all over the country.

Please complete the following task during the week:

  • Choose at least one of the following:
  •  Imagine that you are going to hold a party to celebrate VE day.  Make a list of things you would need.  This could include food, decorations, invitations, what music you would play, what games you would play etc.

  • Make some bunting for a VE day party.
  • Make a Union Jack flag to wave.

  • Find a quarter of an amount - use any objects (any number that can equally be split into 4) and then find a quarter.  You could use Lego bricks, teddy bears, dolls, cars, sweets, stones or any items you have in your home or garden.

    • Have a taste and smell exploration - Get an adult to blindfold you and try different foods - what do they taste like?  Are they sweet or sour?  What do they smell like?  Can you guess what the food is by smelling and tasting it ?  Write down those that you got right and those you got wrong.

Most importantly this week - have a lot of fun with your learning and stay safe!

Here are some of the fabulous things you got up to over Easter.  Well done everyone!

Week commencing: 6/4/2020

Hello everyone! Thank you so much for all of the wonderful work that you sent to me last week! I really enjoyed looking at what you’ve been up to and am so proud of the work that you’ve all been producing! I’m missing being in school with you all but am glad that you’re all keeping safe!

This week, I haven’t set the normal learning work as it is the “Easter holiday.” Instead, I have suggested some Easter and Spring activity ideas that you could do at home (these are optional tasks). Also, don’t forget to use the reading homework slips in your reading record to support the development of your reading skills!

The following activities are for the two weeks and I will post some more learning tasks the week commencing: 20/4/2020

 

Extreme reading challenge:

  • Take a photo of you reading in an unusual place. If you email these to me, I can put them in a folder on the Rabbit Class page so that you can see each other’s unusual places.
  • Write a short book review of your favourite book.  Remember to include information such as title, author, what the story is about, what your favourite part is and why.

Look at all the amazing things you have been up to in the last couple of weeks!

Well done to all of you who have been accessing your learning online and have been working hard.  You are all amazing.  It's also great to see so many of you learning new skills with your family like baking and art.

Your pictures have definitely been brightening my days - thank you for sharing them with me.  Here is just a selection for you all.

Stay safe.  Love Mrs Beesley x

Don't forget, I will be posting some activities that you might like to do over the Easter holiday period on Monday.

Week commencing: 30/3/2020

*Please note: Next Monday, we will be posting some activities that you might like to do over the Easter holiday period.

 

 Maths:

This weeks focus continues to be multiplication and division, so don't forget to keep counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, as well as to 100 forwards and backwards.  There's also an activity involving money, as children need to be able to recognise the value of coins.

Please complete the following two tasks during the week.

  • Education City - My City 30.3.20 - multiplication and division
    • Caring is sharing (learning screen)
  • It would also be great if you could also practise sharing objects practically, for example between family members or toys.  This should be focused on sharing groups of 2, 5 and 10  

 

  • Money
  • Use the coins you have at home (real or play) and talk about the value of each coin.  If you are using real coins you might want to give them a wash first.  Set up a 'shop' and price objects that children can buy and sell.  Don't try to make it complicated, price things to match one coin e.g. 20p, 5p, 2p, 50p etc.  The children loved playing in the toy shop role play area, so just have a lot of fun with it.

Rabbit Class

Spring 2 - Terrific Toys

 

As part of our topic learning about toys, we visited Sudbury Hall Museum of Childhood.  Here we took part in a workshop to identify which toys would have been played with by our grandparents, our parents and us.  We also looked at and played with a variety of toys from the past while exploring the museum.  One of our favourite parts was the chance to climb the chimney.  We had a really memorable day and learned a lot about toys from the past.

Rabbit Class

Spring 1 - The Enchanted Forest

This half term we have been learning about plants.  We held an outdoor topic day to enhance and consolidate our learning.  It was great fun!

We looked for signs of Spring, measured trees, took bark rubbings and cleared our outdoor learning area ready for planting.  We also made some grass seed heads.

Rabbit Class

Autumn 2 - The Enormous Crocodile

This half term, we have been learning about animals.  As part of our topic, we examined animal 'poo' to discover which animals were herbivores, carnivores and omnivores.  It was really interesting!

Rabbit Class

Autumn 1 - Wonderful Weather

We had great fun exploring ice.  Our challenge was to find ways to release objects that were trapped in the ice.  We found ways to warm the ice up to melt it and we were all successful!

As part of our science lessons, we explored a variety of materials.  We sorted them in different ways, we described their properties and investigated metals and magnets.  We also tested materials to see if they were waterproof so that we could mend Mrs Beesley's torn umbrella!

We learned a song about the weather and sang it as a two part round.  Aren't we amazing!

We had fun creating weather collages and sun catchers

We worked together to make rain gauges to measure rainfall

 

Wind Streamers and Weather forecasts

We had fun exploring numbers
