Week beginning Monday 30th March

Well done to everyone who managed to complete a challenge every day last week. If you managed to complete all of Joe Wicks videos, amazing effort as I know he worked you all very hard. If you managed to complete my shorter challenges, again, super effort to make sure you are keeping moving everyday. You are all Sports Stars! Joe Wicks is continuing his live challenges so here is a reminder of the link to his YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1 Keep moving everyone, you are all doing a wonderful job!

Remember, keeping healthy isn’t just about exercise, but about your diet too. Make sure you are thinking about what you are eating and drinking. Remember to get your 5 a day of fruit and vegetables and drink plenty of water to keep you hydrated. You will feel so much better for it! As a side challenge, maybe you could take a photo or draw a picture of a healthy meal you have had this week and share it in your class padlet. It would be a good opportunity to share ideas with each other, to find out what you like and don’t like. Maybe you might come across a healthy food that you have not tried before that you could try.
Stay safe everyone, keep washing your hands and keep moving!

Remember to warm up! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlbCrGqToaw

Week beginning Monday 23rd March

This week, Joe Wicks the Body Coach is doing live workouts for children at 9am each day from Monday to Friday. Here is the link to his youtube channel so that you can follow them at home. You will be doing some of his other workout challenges during this week too! https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1

We want you to keep active in your time at home, so have a go at each of these Active Workouts. Active workouts are a great way to get lots of exercise in just a few minutes. Each workout is 5 minutes long and will get your heart beating faster. Your mission is to complete a video each day. If you want to challenge yourself, you can repeat the videos as many times as you like or retry the videos from the other days. The more you practice, the easier it gets. Have fun and keep moving!

Don’t forget to warm up first!  Complete this video before each of the Active Workouts.

Our 30 Things Challenge

Our 30 Things Challenge is a seven year endeavour to be completed by pupils during their time with us. We have worked with children, parents, staff and governors to identify our own twenty-five tasks and combined it with five selected by our academy trust, which will be common to all children attending a LAAT school.

We have now turned these ideas into our very own “My 30 Things Passport”, which will be updated as each challenge is completed. We feel sure that you will agree that in order to meet their thirty challenges the children will be kept busy over their seven years with us!

For those children further up the school, or who join us later on in their school journey, we recognise that it may not be possible to meet all thirty before they leave us but we will endeavour to meet as many as possible in the time we have available.

World Book Day 6 March

In preparation for World Book Day the children were asked to make a ‘story in a jar’. As you can see the children have clearly put lots of thought and effort in their story jars. We really enjoyed trying to solve the clues to work out which story the children had put into their jars.

During World Book Day we celebrated our love of reading by sharing stories all snuggled up with a hot chocolate. We are now looking forward to borrowing the sequel to ‘Supertato’.

Learning about Islam 20 January

During our learning about Islam and we have been discussing the reasons why Muslims give thanks to Allah during prayer. We talked about what it means to be thankful and explored this further by writing thank you cards to our class mates. All of the children gave and received a card and we talked about how it made us feel to give but also to receive kind words.

Counting in 2's 4 December

We are learning all about pairs, counting in 2’s and doubling this week. The children were able to work together as a team to put themselves in the correct order when counting in 2’s all the way to 50!

Gist 20 November

We really enjoyed our Wednesday morning with Gist learning all about road safety. First we practised crossing the road safely in the playground, we hope the children told you all about ‘stop, look, listen and think!’ After that we learnt about the stopping distance for lorries and we were even allowed to have a look inside the cab!

Fantastic Week! 1 November

What a fantastic first week back after half term! In maths we have been busy learning about 2D and 3D shapes, we rounded off the week by making 3D shape patterns. In P.E the children enjoyed using hockey sticks and tennis rackets to develop their ball skills.

Little Daffodils 29 October

As part of their centenary celebrations, Taylors Bulbs have launched a nationwide campaign to get children planting bulbs this October. As part of The ‘Little Daffodils’ initiative Baytree Garden Centre visited us on Wednesday to deliver pots, bulbs and compost. We were so pleased to be able to give the children the opportunity to learn more about nature and grow their own flowers. It would be wonderful to see some pictures once the daffodils have bloomed.

Animals UK 8 October

We had a fantastic morning with Animals UK. We enjoyed learning about the different animals and the children were very brave when they held the python!

PE 26 September

We are really enjoying our P.E lessons with Miss Cox. In today’s lesson we were able to explore the apparatus, it was really exciting to climb the ropes for the first time!

Madagascar Homework 6 September

We would like to say a massive thank you for all of the children’s amazing pieces of homework! We have enjoyed hearing about the animals in Madagascar.
