A small number of children are in still school and we would like to share some of what they have been doing! They have called themselves the 'Free Arena'!
Wednesday 1st April
Happy April Fools Day! The children have been trying hard to play tricks on the teachers today. However, we have managed to find time to complete some Easter maths activities, followed by creating our very own board games and finishing off with an exciting scavenger hunt around the school.
Tuesday 31st March
After our morning work out we practiced our adding and subtracting with some emoji Maths. Then we used our stop motion skills from yesterday to make Easter videos which we are going to upload to The Pines YouTube channel! This afternoon we stretched out with some Star Wars cosmic yoga.
Monday 30th March
We said ‘Hi’ to Joe Wicks to begin Week 2 with a kickstart. Mrs Churchill was particularly good at her Thor sound effects this morning. The rest of the morning challenged both sides of our brain with a creative Spring inspired word cloud and a ‘Magic Square’ puzzle before trying dotty six (our best was 4 throws!) We played individually, but partner up at home! https://nrich.maths.org/7337
Friday 27th March
Happy Friday everyone! Today, the Free Arena started off once again with Joe Wicks and his work out, before completing a Maths mystery to find out who stole the chocolate from the factory! This afternoon we all went outside to cover the playground with chalk drawings. We wondered whether they would still be there on Monday?
We hope you have all had a safe week and have a relaxing weekend indoors.
Wednesday 25th March
We began again with some high energy exercise with Joe Wicks. Loved the Spider-Man and Karate Kid moves today. After this, we used Mr Men and Little Miss as our inspiration, creating our own family as the characters and designing a new one. We completed some time tables practise and enjoyed a little bit of hide and seek and the adventure playground. The children did a great job planting some beans in the allotment whilst in the afternoon we produced some beautiful spring paintings and enjoyed football in the ☀️!
Tuesday 24th March
Today started with PE with Joe Wicks, The Body Coach. Then we've practised times tables and/or addition skill with some maths colouring sheets, written part of a story so as a whole group we told the story of 'The Blue Umbrella' (based on the Pixar short film), solved a mystery using our grammar skills, taken photographs of flowers and plants to draw in class and gardened as a team. We ended with some Cosmic Yoga and a story. In our free time, we enjoyed a football match and a game of hide and seek.
Monday 23rd March
This morning the children have enjoyed a superhero treasure hunt and have been building bridges!
