PE Activities

Week Beginning 1st June

Some more challenges for you this week. Watch the videos as they will tell you how each activity works. You can do them as many times as you like.

Monday https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJY7kDJJrp0 How many times can you complete it without putting your foot down? Start with one piece of paper with a sock on it. Can you pick it up without putting your other foot down? Then try with 2, 3 and 4 sheets of paper.

  • Challenge: stand a few paces back from a piece of paper. Standing on one leg, throw your sock to try and get it to land on the paper, hop to pick it up, pick it up and hop back to where you started, without putting your foot down. How many times can you do this without putting your foot down at all? You could make the distance you hop and throw, further.

Tuesday https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzWyMWAEfk4 Speed bounce: How many jumps can you get in 20 seconds? Why not make it 30 seconds or more? Have a competition with those in your household to see who can do the most.  

  • Challenge: try hopping side to side over the sock. You could also try jumping forwards and backwards rather than side to side.

Wednesday https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BA4XN3Pynig How many did you complete? Why don’t you work your way up to find out the longest amount of time you can manage without stopping.

Thursday https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNrkzkckZN4 How many star jumps can you do in 20 seconds? What is the most you can do without stopping? Have a competition with those in your household to see who can do the most. You could also see how many star jumps you could do to your favourite song.

Friday https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfSl3G0p4u0 How many throws does it take for you to knock over the tower? How many can you get in a row? Have a competition with those in your household to see who can do the most.

Week Beginning 11th May

This week you will be doing some yoga. This will help you to focus on your breathing and help you to be able to feel calm. This may be quite new for you all so if you find it tricky, don’t worry because the more you practice, the easier it will get. You can always repeat the videos if you need to.

Week Beginning 4th May

You have two Bingo cards to complete this week. By completing all the challenges, you achieve a gold medal. Can you become a double gold medalist? On the map there are lots of activities for you to complete. Don’t worry, you don’t have to complete them all in one go- you can split them over the 5 days. Alternatively, you can make them harder by increasing the time you spend on each activity or increase the number you want to complete.

Week Beginning 27th April

For each of these challenges you can have as many goes as you like. See if you can beat yourself or see who can get the most in your household. Record your results because you can always come back to them later in the week to improve your score. If you don’t have the correct equipment, each activity has an alternative that you can use so you can still take part in the challenge. How many gold medals can you get this week?

Week Beginning 20th April

Welcome back to your virtual PE challenges! I hope you have managed to have a good Easter break whilst staying at home. This week you will be doing some Zumba. This is dance fitness, so learning routines to music whilst keeping fit at the same time. Don’t worry if you find it a bit tricky, you can always practice a few times. The more you practice, the easier it will get. You could even use some of the warm up stretches from the Joe Wicks workouts. You can do the same for your cool down, you here is the reminder of the cool down stretches video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gMuN6m1Gso Joe Wicks is still doing his daily workouts too so if you prefer to do those, or want to do both, that is absolutely fine. Keep moving, keep drinking lots of water and eating healthily and most importantly, stay safe!

Easter Break

Hello everyone! I’ve really missed teaching you all over the last few weeks. It’s the Easter Holidays now, but it doesn’t mean you can’t stay active.

You can continue with the Joe Wicks workouts on his YouTube channel, (I will keep doing them too!), or you can redo some of the other activities that I have set over the last couple of weeks. You might have found other ways to keep yourselves moving too, which is wonderful. Keep those going if you can! Remember to keep drinking lots of water, and getting plenty of fruits and vegetables into your diet so that you can continue to stay healthy.

Stay safe and enjoy the break.
Miss Cox

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 that it’s important to cool down after each challenge. Here is a reminder of last week’s cool down stretches.

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 8 Workouts. These are HIIT workouts (High Intensity Interval Training) and are a great way to get lots of exercise in just a few minutes. Each workout is 5-8 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. If you are finding it more challenging, pause the video if you need extra time to recover in between each exercise. 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.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_swUGtEpazY

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.

PE 12 March

Despite the bitter wind, we had an enjoyable and energetic PE lesson where everyone showed great teamwork and resilience. Elwood and Myleigh stood out in the lesson for encouraging other people, and they were this week’s Sport Stars!

World Book Day 5 March

Year 3 enjoyed a day of story sharing, and fun activities related to our new book ‘Evie in The Jungle’. We all agreed that reading is indeed magical and that books spark our awesome imaginations! The World Book Day party isn't over yet - SHARE A MILLION STORIES IS a nationwide campaign to help change children’s lives, by making story-sharing a habit of a lifetime and creating readers for life.

Comparing Food 14 February

Year 3 had a great topic lesson comparing organic and non organic food. This followed on from their Exotic Food tasting, so it was a tasty last day all round. Many of them tasted foods, such as pomegranates, lychees and sharon fruits, and loved them.

Gymnastics 7 February

This term, Year 3 have been working hard to improve their gymnastic skills.  Here, they are working in small groups to perfect their star and straight jumps, as well as various leaps.  It was amazing to watch the intense concentration and the excellent team work! Well done Year 3.

Matisse Artwork 7 February

Year 3s produced some amazing Art in the style of Henri Matisse this term.

Rev Gareth 10 December

Today Rev Gareth led a whole school assembly on the theme of Advent. He made an Advent Wreath using children for the 5 candles and then wrapped them in greenery to represent ‘good things to come’.

Year 3 Class Assembly 28 November

Year 3 presented an assembly this week on the Art of Poetry. Everyone spoke loudly and clearly and the rest of the school listened attentively. Year 3 have just completed the Literacy unit on Poetry so this was an appropriate celebration of all the wonderful learning that has taken place over the past few weeks.

Term 1

Term 1 has been a busy and enjoyable term in Year 3, both inside and outside of the classroom.

We have enjoyed Tag Rugby with Miss Cox and the crisp Autumn weather was perfect for this activity. In Science we worked hard on our Animals including Humans Topic while in RE we studied Hinduism against a background of big questions. In Topic we have been exploring the question ’How do humans use Rivers?’ and in English we have become experts in writing explanation texts on complicated topics such as The Water Cycle.

Our end of term assembly focussed on the importance of heathy eating and food groups, including why we need to have certain amounts of each food group. So watch out if you are sitting near a Year 3 in the dinner hall – they will be checking to see if you are eating a well balanced lunch!
