School Closure- Week 13

Monday 6th July- Friday 10th July

 

I hope you have all had a lovely week. I have a few reminders about the transition day. Year 5 will be in on Thursday 16th July. You will be with me and also you will meet your new teacher. The day will be all about fun and will include a socially distanced sports day. You will be dropped off and picked up from the hall (9.00-3.15). Children will need to wear sports clothes with a hat and coat and bring a water bottle/lunch (school dinners are available). 

 

Miss Tuach will be making her last phone calls this week and you will be seeing me on the transition days. If you have any questions then you can talk to either of us or message me on Google Classroom.  You can also continue to e-mail in home learning or share work with me through Google Classroom.

 

Have a great week everyone.

I hope you have all had a lovely week. I am really looking forward to seeing you all on our transition day in a few weeks time!! 

 

I will continue to set Learning by Questions for you everyday. I have also listed activities and ideas for home learning for the week if you are wanting to complete something different or do more!!. It would be fantastic to see photos of your home learning, so don’t forget to send them to: deputy@southmoltonprimary.devon.sch.uk

I hope you have all had a lovely week. It has been great to hear how you have been getting on from Miss Tuach.

 

Learning by Questions is now up and running again. I will set three tasks each day and aim to post the code (on Google Classroom) by 9.00am each day. I have changed the type of activities that you will be completing. On one day I will set maths and the next English etc. This is so I can set X3 levels per subject making it accessible for all. It would be great to see as many of you as possible using LbQ, because I am able to see your achievements!

 

 

On this page I have listed activities and ideas for home learning for the week. It would be fantastic to see photos of your home learning, so don’t forget to send them to: deputy@southmoltonprimary.devon.sch.uk

GET INVOLVED IN THE #DEVON VIRTUAL GAMES: The 4th (Boccia Sock-ia) & 5th Event (Creative Challenge) is now live & well done to Jonathan W for achieving the Gold Award in Event 1!

This is an opportunity for all our children (Reception up to Year 6) to participate in the Devon Virtual Games. There is going to be 6 active events in all, but you enter them individually with support from your family and so can choose which ones you want/can do. 

With each event there are certificates, medals and awards and the school with the highest percentage of pupils taking part will also win a prize - so get your friends involved!   

 

The third event is called 'Dance' and children have until Sunday 28th June 2020 to create your own dance routine to the song ‘Blinding Lights’ by The Weekend. Your routine will have to be no longer than 1 minute in duration, but you can use any style of dance you like. If there are adequate entries and permissions allow, all the clips will be edited to create a dance video routine to thank all key workers for their hard work. 

 

The fourth (Boccia Sock-ia) and fifth (Creative Challenge) events are now live and children have until Sunday 5th July 2020 to enter. Sock-ia is the same as boccia however you use socks instead of boccia balls. This game can be played individually or with other family members in your household. The 5th challenge is about creating a 7th Spirit of the Games Value for Devon and explain its meaning. You then create your logo & send a photo of what it will look like. 

To access all the details go to: https://www.activedevon.org/find-the-devonvirtualgames and click on Event 4 or 5.

I hope everyone is safe and well as we start week 9 of our school closure. Whilst the majority of you continue your learning at home, I am working with keyworker children from years 3 and 4.

School Closure- Week 8

Monday 1st June- Friday 5th June

I hope everyone is safe and well as we start week 8 of our school closure. As you know, some year groups are coming back into school this week as the lockdown begins to ease. As year 5 were not one of the selected year groups, your learning will continue from home for now, but we are here to support you.

Each school day, I will continue to post a code on Google Classroom for Learning by Questions. On this page, I have also listed additional activities and ideas for home learning for the week if you are looking for more activities.

One other change this week is that you will receive your weekly phone call from Miss Tuach or Mrs Alford. Whilst we cannot be together, this is a great opportunity to maintain the communication between home and school. Please pass on any messages that you wish to share with me.

Have a wonderful week everyone.

 

 

Home Learning

 

As I am sure you will remember we were meant to be going on our camp this week. While this is disappointing for everybody, as we can’t pack our bags and go and enjoy the great outdoors, I still want you to have a fantastic week. So, I thought we could mark this special week by having a virtual camp instead.

 

Each day you could complete one of the challenges or as many as you like! It would be fantastic to see photos of your challenges, so don’t forget to send them to: deputy@southmoltonprimary.devon.sch.uk  

 

Virtual Camp

 

Please be safe while doing these activities and check what you’re doing with an adult.

 

First things first:

 

Build your campsite

You need somewhere to sleep! It could be a tent in your garden, or put the tent up in your living room, or build a tent in your living room.

 

 

Ideas:

  • Pitch tent in garden
  • Pitch tent in house
  • Build a tent with bed sheets and sofa cushions house
  • Build a tent outside

Build your campfire

What’s a camp without a campfire? Your task is to build a campfire using whatever you can fine – it does not have to be real.

Ideas:

  • Build a Lego/model fire
  • Draw a fire
  • Paint a fire on cardboard

 

Other Fun Activities:

 

Virtual Day trip

Take a virtual day out and visit one or more of these places.

 

For each of the places you visit, take a photo of you enjoying yourself and sum up your experience by answering the following questions:

 

1, Where did you visit?
 

2, Describe your trip.
 

3, List 3 things you saw on your trip.
 

4, List 3 interesting facts about your trip.
 

5, List 3 things you learnt on your trip.
 

6, What was your favourite thing on your trip?

Virtual Trips:

Putsborough, Croyde and Baggy Point

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkCxFus31rk

 

Menu Planning

Imagine that you are actually going to be cooking a meal for 5 people on the camp fire. Your budget is £10, what would you cook?

 

Create a menu and then price up all of your ingredients.

 

Optional:

If your adult is happy for you to do so and you have the food at home, why not even try cooking the meal for your family!!!

https://www.sainsburys.co.uk/

Ten Minute Hike

How many steps can you take walking around your house (and garden if you have one) in ten minutes?

 

Record the number of steps that you take.

 

Star Gazing

If we have a clear night, ask your adult if you can stay up a bit later and do some star gazing. Which different constellations can you see?

 

Alternatively, if the weather is bad then explore the constellations using https://in-the-sky.org/skymap.php.

Useful apps for looking at the night sky:

 

NASA App: Track the movements of the International Space Station.

 

Star Walks Kids: An app that when you point it at the sky tells you the constellations you are looking at.

 

 

 

 

Biscuit Challenge

 

Place a biscuit on your forehead, get it into your mouth without using your hands. Film and send it!

 

Example:

https://youtu.be/IZvQ25wLAFI

 

Is it easier with different biscuits?

Human Knot

With 3+ people (the more people the more challenging it is- obviously from the same household!).  Have everyone stand in a circle facing the centre. Everyone raises their left hand and hold the left hand of someone across the circle. Then raise the right hand and hold the right hand of someone different across the circle.

 

You then need to get yourself unknotted, into a big circle without letting go of the other peoples’ hands.

Example:

https://youtu.be/lQ-a_6eA0EU

 

How many people can you do it with?

Shoe tower

What’s the biggest tower you can build with shoes?

What’s the best way you have found to make a tower?

 

Tea Pot challenge

You will need a Tennis ball.

Example:

https://youtu.be/Hcl8iGkOX7I

 

 

 

 

 

Bottled up emotions

Our current situation can lead us to experience a range of emotions. Let’s get these out of our head. Using the templates, draw the emotion in the bottle and colour it in.

 

You can download the pdf version, print it off and colour it in, or,

Download load the image to your computer/tablet/phone and colour it in on there.

Templates:

  - JPG Image

  - PDF doc

 

 

Mountain Climbing

If you have steps in or near your house, why not challenge yourself to climb a mountain.

 

For example, if you wanted to climb Snowdon, you would need to climb 4610 steps.

Different mountain heights as steps:

https://www.muchbetteradventures.com/magazine/how-many-stairs-do-you-need-to-climb-to-reach-the-top-of-famous-mountains/

Learn to juggle

Spend some time learning a new skill!

- Look up juggling tutorials on YouTube

- You don’t have to start will balls, try juggling with handkerchiefs

Topic - VE Day

 

The 8th May is the VE Day bank holiday marking 75 years since victory in Europe. Although we cannot celebrate together, we are being encouraged to undertake the ‘Nation’s Toast to the Heroes of WW2’ at 3pm on the 8th May, from the safety of our own homes.  We can do this by standing up and raising a glass of refreshment of your choice and undertaking the following ‘Toast’ – “To those who gave so much, we thank you.” This will be a unique opportunity to pay tribute to the many millions at home and abroad that gave so much to ensure we all enjoy and share the freedom we have today.

 

https://ve-vjday75.gov.uk/dan-snows-ve-day-challenge/   Dan snow has set some challenges for children here that might be useful.


PE, Health and Fitness

 

Miss Tuach has written to all of you, suggesting a few more PE, health and fitness related websites/resources for home learning.

The Fitter Future programme have asked if the following information could be passed on to all pupils please; 'To access the programme simply visit www.fitterfuture.com  and select SIGN IN followed by STUDENT. Please use the login details that your school have provided you (Username = southmolton     Password = southmolton). The platform is not designed for multi users with the same login details but due to the current situation it is easier to give every child in the school the same username and password rather than generate one per child which then needs emailing, by the school, to each parent individually. With this in mind please can you and your child not change the password. If you are having trouble signing into Fitter Future please sign up directly with us for a (free) account personalised to you by visiting https://www.fitterfuture.com/sign-up/ and selecting FAMILY. We hope this helps.'

Go to ukactive.kids.com and join the 'Move Crew' with a new active mission everyday to achieve. If you send in an image or video of your child doing a Move Crew activity to movecrew@active.org.uk  you could be in with a chance of winning prizes!
Also, if you could send any photos of you and the family keeping fit and healthy to deputy@southmoltonprimary.devon.sch.uk  then we can also share them on the 'Home Learning Heroes' page on the newsletter. 

 

BBC Bitesize has some great educational videos and lessons for Physical Education in both Keystage 1 and 2. This will help to continue your knowledge on areas such as nutrition, the importance of exercise, balance, co-ordination and muscles needed when exercising

  • Spelling- You could visit- https://spellingframe.co.uk and complete spelling rule number 37 (cious/tious). You can either practise the spelling or take a test with those words. All words are read aloud and provided within a sentence for context.
  • Topic- Just before Easter, we were learning about ‘climate zones’ and we had just started to talk about biomes. Follow this link to research biomes-  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z849q6f/articles/zvsp92p Once you have researched this topic, you might like to create a double page spread to show all that you have found out.

 

I am really looking forward to seeing all or your home learning when we return to school. But for now, if you have any home learning that you are proud of, email it to: deputy@southmoltonprimary.devon.sch.uk and we will put it on our 'Home Learning Heroes' page. Mr Parkin will choose the best each week for the school newsletter!

I will be phoning home at the end of this week to hear how you have been getting on. Visit this page again next week where I'll be posting more ideas!

Week One- School Closure

We are now half-way through our first week of the school being closed. I hope that everyone is well and that the children have enjoyed an early start to the Easter holiday! I know that many children have been able to complete their home learning and I hope this has been keeping them busy!

Each school day, I have been posting a code (via Google classroom) for the children to log in to 'Learning by Questions'. This is a website where I can set the learning for the children, on a daily basis, and they complete multiple choice questions. As well as LBQ and the home learning packs that were emailed to parents last week, there is an extensive list of websites that the children can access in the Parent's home learning page of the school website. 

It would be great if the children could continue with their learning at home, but please make sure that it does not cause added stress at this uncertain time. If you can, try to continue with your learning during the holiday. After Easter, I will telephone each child to catch-up with how things are going. 

Keep safe and well and find time to relax in the holiday.

It’s been a fantastic week to end the first half of the spring term. We have begun our art project and enjoyed making observational drawings of leaves. During outdoor adventure time, we found the perimeter and area of shapes. Today, we looked closely at the inside of a chicken egg. Once we cracked the eggs open, we drew accurate diagrams. This was part of our science learning on life cycles.

We had great fun on our Halloween/Non Electricity Day on Thursday. If you are having problems with vampires, just ask Lyn Class. We wrote some fabulous instructions on how to defeat vampires! Obviously, wearing spooky costumes while writing gave us the inspiration that we needed!
