Wellbeing challenge number 17

Date: 5th May 2020 @ 10:20am

Good morning everyone,

I don't know about you but I can't wait to get out in that sun so today's challenge is one that can be done outside if you like.

Today we are focusing on having a growth mindset and doing this through yoga. Having a growth mindset means you have a positive attitude to your learning and know that just because you may find something difficult and you can't do it yet, you will get there as long as you don't give up!

Here are 5 different growth mindset yoga poses to try. Please feel free to try as many or as few positions as you like and send any pictures to EALhomelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk

Reading Challenge

Date: 4th May 2020 @ 6:01pm

Last week we reached an impressive 1386 minutes on Lexia and earned 3 certificates. I'm so impressed with this dedication now let's see if we can get even more children using Lexia, reach even more minutes and earn more certificates. I have already seen yesterday 4 children earnt a certificate but I bet we can get more by the end of the week.

I will send you your certificate by email if I have your email address. If I don't, just email me at

y3homelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk so I can send it to you.

Good morning everyone,

I hope you all had a good weekend and are ready to work hard on your learning (and your wellbeing!) this week.

Today's challenge has actually come from a website that Mrs Hughes sent to me to look at so thank you Mrs Hughes!

Today I would like you to think about resilience which means keeping strong and bouncing back even in a difficult situation. I'd like you to design a Shield of Strength.

Think about what your strengths are, especially the ones that can help you at the moment while we're not in school, and write or draw (or both!) onto a shield. Here is my shield that you may want to use for help: 

I have attached a template of the shield in case you want to use it but otherwise you can just fraw a shield on a plain piece of paper.

As always I would love to see your challenges so please send them to EALhomelearning@ravensbury.sch.uk

Wellbeing challenge number 15

Date: 1st May 2020 @ 10:19am

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! I can't believe it's already the end of another week. I hope everyone is working hard and staying safe.

I got the idea for today's wellbeing challenge yesterday when I saw the most amazing rainbow in the sky. It was the brightest colours I've ever seen and I could see the whole arc. There was even a faint second rainbow next to it!

Photos don't really show how amazing it was but you can see how vivid the colours are:

The rainbow made me feel happy when I saw it and I thought it might make other people happy too! So today's challenge is to take a photo of something that makes you feel happy. You could find something in your house or do it on a walk. It could be a person, an animal, an object or even something that you've made. Anything that makes you feel happy or positive. If you don't have a camera, phone or tablet of your own then ask an adult if you can borrow theirs but please be careful with it!

If you'd like to share your happy photo then please e-mail it to EALhomelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk, I'd love to see it and then I can post some of them and spread the happiness around!

Have a good weekend,

Mrs Glover

Thanks to A who sent a photo of himself doing the breathing exercises I set yesterday, I hope they helped you feel nice and calm.

 

Outstanding Home Learning

I am so impressed with how much fantastic learning is going on at home.

Wellbeing challenge number 14

Date: 30th Apr 2020 @ 10:01am

Good morning everyone, 

I hope everyone enjoyed some relaxing colouring yesterday, here is a picture of mine. It isn't quite finished yet but I had a nice relaxing hour doing it last night:

Today's challenge is to do a mindfulness breathing activity. Mindfulness can help you relax and be in the moment, appreciating everything that's around you.

Just one breath

Find a relaxing place where you won't be disturbed. Sit in a comfortable position, either with your legs crossed or any comfortable posture. This activity can be done in as little as one minute, but you can also do it for longer periods of time.

Begin by setting a timer for one minute.       

Start breathing deeply in and out. Notice how the breath feels as it moves in and out of your body. Notice how the air feels on your skin. Pay attention to any sensations that you notice or any sounds that you hear.

Take another slow deep breath and see if you can imagine how the breath moves down into the lungs and then back up again. Thank your body and breath for giving you life and keeping you healthy.

Take one more deep breath and hold the breath for a moment - then release it.

If any thoughts worry you, try and imagine your thoughts immersed in a white, puffy cloud and push the thought cloud out of your awareness.

Afterward, notice how you feel after taking this one-minute break.

If you want to tell me about your experience or send any photos of yourself doing the activity then e-mail me on EALhomelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk.

There are more simple instructions below.

Thursday 30th April :)

Date: 30th Apr 2020 @ 9:42am

Happy Thursday Year 3, 

Hope you're all having a lovely time learning at home with your adults.

Let's start with the answers for yesterday

Sentence of the Day answers: 

Julie and Ben were walking through High End park on Sunday when a fox jumped out of the bushes and chased them all the way back home to their house on Windmill Lane.

They all need a capital letter because they are proper nouns – they are the name of a person, thing or place and therefore need a capital letter.

SPAG activity answers: 

Maths activity answers: 

 

Today's activities! 

Sentence of the day: 

 

Add the punctuation in to today’s sentence of the day.

Early in the morning the dazzling yellow sunshine appeared from behind the clouds What a beautiful sight it was


SPAG activity:

Remember – expanded noun phrases are 2a sentences! You know how to do these brilliantly!

 

Maths activity: 

Match the fraction to the correct drawing representation. See if you can draw them accurately yourself. 

We are really impressed with every piece of work we are receiving so well done! Keep up the good work and don't forget to send your work to y3homelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk

Friday tomorrow = Today is the last day to send your Roman shields into the Y3 homelearning email. We will upload the pictures on tomorrow's blog! Remember, this can be a Roman shield which you make out of materials or one that you draw on paper. Have fun! 

We are really proud of you all! Keep smiling :)

Love

Miss Humphreys, Miss Faragher and Miss G :) 

Wellbeing challenge number 13

Date: 29th Apr 2020 @ 10:35am

Hello everyone,

It's a rather miserable looking Wednesday out there so my wellbeing challenge today is an indoor one.

It's actually quite a simple challenge today; I'd simply like you to do some colouring. Colouring is a lovely relaxing activity that you can do on your own for some me-time or together with a family member to make it a more sociable activity.

I think most of you were given some colouring pages when we finished school but if you've already used these and don't have any more at home then good news, there is a website where you can do online colouring:

https://www.online-coloring.com/

Or you could always draw something to colour! Anything you like.

I have a new Enchanted Forest colouring book that my husband bought me (pictured below) that I'm going to do a bit of colouring in later, maybe while I listen to a podcast or to some music to have a bit of a break from staring at a screen. I'll post a picture of my efforts tomorrow.

Remember to send in pictures of your challenges to EALhomelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk

Mrs Glover

A big thanks to Roderigo from Year 1 who sent me a picture of his crystal ball challenge from yesterday, some fantastic goals there!

 

Wednesday 29th April :)

Date: 29th Apr 2020 @ 10:06am

Good morning Year 3,

Half way through another week of home learning! We are so impressed with all of the work you have sent in to us this week! 

First of all... here are the answers for the sentence of the day and fluent in 5 from yesterday:

A mountain range is a group of mountains found on land or under the sea. Some mountains used to be volcanos like Ben Nevis in Scotland Snowdon in Wales.

A needs a capital letter to start the sentence.

Under not unda – it has the er suffix

Sea not see – this is a homophone, two words that sound the same but are spelt differently and have a different meaning. Sea is like the ocean which is the one we want. See is to see something.

Some not sum – again, homophone. Some means a few of something and sum means the sum of something e.g.the sum of 2 numbers in maths.

Used – It may sound like it has you at the beginning but it is just the ‘u’ sound

2 in 1 = Wales – first of all needs a capital letter because it is the name of a place and secondly, it is spelt differently. Whales are the animal. Wales is the place.

2/3 of 12       = 8                                  3/8 of 40      = 15

4/10 of 50     =20                                 2/4 of 44       =22

Well done if you got those answers correct! Now on to today's challenges. 

Sentence of the day:

Can you spot where the capital letters should go and why?

julie and ben were walking through high end park on sunday when a fox jumped out of the bushes and chased them all the way back home to their house on windmill lane.

 

SPAG Activity: 

 

Maths Activity: Addition and subtraction of fractions with the same denominator.

Remember, you only need to change the numerator by adding them together or taking them away. The denominator stays the same.

The answers are only these 3 fractions on the bottom so if you got a different fraction to 3/10, 7/10 or 9/10 for your answer, check again carefully. 

 

CC activity:

Watch this video on getting to the very top of Europe’s 10 tallest mountains and imagine how it might feel whilst you were stood at the very top of them. After all that hard work and training, how would you feel.

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

Now, can you write a short diary entry as if you were one of the people in the video? Remember, a diary entry is FIRST person. That means, I, I’m, we, my, us, me, I’ll – you know this from your Boudicca diary entries! See how much you can describe. Answer these questions:

What can you see?

What can you hear?

What can you smell?

How do you feel?

What are you thinking?

 

Start with:

Dear Diary,

I can’t believe we’ve finally made it to the top. The view is …

 

We can't wait to read them all! 

Finally, speaking of reading. We set you a challenge to read in as many different places as you could, we've had a few emails back with pictures of this which were great! Keep sending your pictures of you reading in random places to y3homelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk - Here, we've seen Miss G reading... in her bath!!!

She's reading on her tablet. Remember, you can read using Lexia and Reading Plus and lots of other online platforms too!

Happy learning at home!

Miss Humphreys, Miss Faragher and Miss G :)

PS. The Roman Shield challenge ends on Friday! Remember to send your pictures in of you designing or creating a shield!

Wellbeing challenge number 12

Date: 28th Apr 2020 @ 10:55am

Good morning everyone,

Today's challenge is all about thinking positivity and making the most of your time while you're not at school smiley.

Imagine looking into a cyrstal ball 3 months from now.

Draw or write what challenges you are facing, what positive changes you want to make and what might be different in 3 months time.

Try to focus on things that seem possible to achieve like starting a new hobby, learning a few words in a new language or getting better at some of your learning like reading or times tables.

I've done mine on the computer (on MS Word) as my paper is in the study where my husband is on a video call for work so I didn't want to disturb him! But you can do yours however you want.

I've included a picture of mine below if you want to have a look!

Please feel free to tell me about any of the wellbeing challenges you have done, I'd love to see what you're all doing in your free time! You can now e-mail me on Ealhomelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk to let me know (or to contact me or Mrs Harriott about any EAL home learning too)

Good morning Year 3, 

WOW, Miss Faragher and I are so impressed with the work that we recieved yesterday! And all of the love heart pictures for Mrs Thewlis to create a brilliant video with. In case you didn't know, Mrs Thewlis recently uploaded a video of the staff sending a picture of themselves with a love heart ... link is attached below in case you haven’t seen it. She has asked us to challenge everybody in our class to send a picture of themselves doing a love heart with their fingers. She will then make a little video/collage and upload to the twitter and website pages. There’s also a prize for the class who get the most responses! So send your pictures in as soon as you can! 

https://twitter.com/ravensburycomm1/status/1254470310063222785?s=21 - Video of staff. 

 

Let's get to it!  ANSWERS FROM 28.04.2020

First of all, here are the answers to yesterday's sentence of the day and fluent in 5. 

Suddenly, rain started pouring down so fast! The sun had been out all day and then the rain came. That meant one thing… a rainbow! It was beautiful and so colourful. There were so many different colours, I couldn’t believe my eyes!

Capital letter for Suddenly because it starts the sentence

Exclamation mark rather than question mark. It is not asking a question.

meant – spelt wrong           beautiful – spelt wrong                  colourful – spelt wrong

1/3 of 12        =4                                   1/8 of 32                 = 4

1/4 of 44       =11                                  1/10 of 90               =9

 

Today's sentence of the day

a mounten range is a group of mountains found on land or unda the see_ Sum mountains yoused to be volcanos like ben nevis in Scotland Snowdon in whales.

Errors in green:

-Mountain is spelt incorrectly. It has the ai sound like rain

-There needs to be a full stop at the end of the sentence.

-Ben Nevis needs capital letters because it is a proper noun – it is the name of something.

7 unmarked errors (including a 2 in 1 error)

 

Today's fluent in 5

Focus on non-unit fractions

2/3 of 12                                              3/8 of 40

4/10 of 50                                            2/4 of 44

Remember non-unit fractions are similar to unit fractions to work out, they just have one extra step. Divide the whole number by the denominator (bottom part of the fraction). Whatever answer you get, times it by the numerator (top part of the fraction). E.g. 2/3 of 30          30 (whole number) ÷ 3(denominator) = 10          

10 (answer) x2(numerator) = 20    20 = answer.

 

Today's CC activity:

Yesterday, we introduced mountains as part of our 'Can I grow lettuce on a mountain summit?' topic. Today, you are going to do the same activity of a KWL grid but for rivers

Get a piece of paper: Draw a table like this.

What I know already

What I would like to know

What I know now

 

 

 

 

 

Fill out the what you already know section and the what you would like to know about rivers.

Once you have done all of that, watch this BBC bitesize video about rivers, https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z849q6f/articles/z7w8pg8

Read all of the information below the video, then there is a quiz at the bottom. Have a go at that and see what score you get!

If you visit https://www.theschoolrun.com/homework-help/rivers there are lots of pictures and facts on rivers that might help you with the next job.

Your job is to now write three facts about rivers in your ‘what I know now’ column. Send us your results of the quiz and your 3 facts to y3homelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk

Wellbeing challenge number 11

Date: 27th Apr 2020 @ 11:16am

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend and made the most of the lovely warm weather (I think it might be the last hot sun for a while although it seems nice so far this morning!)

Today's challenge is to do something that I have just discovered myself although my husband has been nagging me to do it for a while - Listen to a podcast.

A podcast is a bit like a radio show that you can download to your tablet, phone or laptop and listen to either while you relax or while you go for a walk. Some include music, some are educational, some entertain you and some are just good for helping you relax. You can listen to them with others or by yourself if you need a bit of me time.

This weekend I have been listening to one called Sounds of the 90s by Fearne Cotton that includes lot of music from the 90s as well as intervews with 90s pop stars. I've been listening to it while I go on my hour long walks every day and I think some of the teachers may also enjoy it!

Here are some podcasts I've found that I think you might all like, the links are under each description:

But Why: A pocast for curious kids
A podcast answering lots of questions that you may find interesting!
http://digital.vpr.net/programs/why-podcast-curious-kids

Storytime
10 - 15 minute stories (mostly for little ones)
http://bedtime.fm/storytime

What if world 
With wacky episode titles such as "What if Legos were alive?" and "What if sharks had legs?," this series takes ridiculous "what if" questions submitted by young listeners and turns them into a new story every two weeks.http://www.whatifworldpodcast.com/

Noodle Loaf
A delightful offering from a music education specialist and his co-host daughter will get kids of all ages singing, rhyming, moving, and engaging in all kinds of musical games. The segments, games, and songs are so silly and upbeat that the whole family will enjoy participating. Little listeners can even add their voice to the theme song in the podcast's electronically compiled kid's choir!
http://noodleloafshow.com/

Be Calm on Ahway Island
Includes soothing stories and mindulness techniques
https://www.ahwayisland.com/

History Storytime
Fun, educational and music re-telling of historical events
https://www.historystorytime.com/

I hope you enjoy listening to some of these, please let us know about any that you particularly enjoy!

Good morning Year 3, 

Hopefully the sun comes out soon! We don't like this weather :( 

On the other hand, we are SO impressed with all of the work that you have been sending to our email. It has made us so happy to see what you have been up to, please continue to do so! y3homelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk 

 

Let's get to it!

Sentence of the day

suddenly, rain started pourin_ down so fast? The sun had been owt all day and then the rain came. That ment one thing… a rainbow! It was butiful and so colerful. There were so many different colours, I couldent believe my eyes!

Errors in green:

- Pouring needs a ‘g’ on the end of ing

-Out is spelt incorrectly

-Different needs another e – diff – er - ent

-Couldn’t is spelt incorrectly. (Could+not) It uses an apostrophe for omission as it omits the ‘o’ vowel from the word not and replaces with an apostrophe.

5 unmarked errors.

Send your completed sentences of the day to the email above. We will post the corrected sentence tomorrow morning. 

 

Fluent in 5 – Focus on unit fractions

1/3 of 12                                              1/8 of 32

1/4 of 44                                              1/10 of 90

Remember, to find a unit fraction you do the whole number divided by the denominator (bottom half of the fraction). E.g. 1/5 of 20           20 (whole number) ÷ 5 (denominator) = 4

 

Connected Curriculum

Our topic this term is ‘Can I grow lettuce on a mountain summit?’ where we look into rivers, mountains and plants.

Today you are going to be doing a KWL grid on mountains like we do in school before the start of any topic. Get a piece of paper: Draw a table like this.

What I know already

What I would like to know

What I know now

 

 

 

 

 

Fill out the what you already know section and the what you would like to know about mountains.

Once you have done all of that, watch this BBC bitesize video about mountains,

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z849q6f/articles/z4g3qp3

Read all of the information below the video, then there is a quiz at the bottom. Have a go at that and see what score you get!

If you visit https://www.theschoolrun.com/homework-help/mountains there are lots of pictures and facts on mountains that might help you with the next job.

Your job is to now write three facts about mountains in your ‘what I know now’ column. Send us your results of the quiz and your 3 facts to y3homelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk

A little challenge for you!!! How many places can you read a book. We saw Year 1 doing this fantastic challenge and would love to see how many pictures you can take of you reading in different areas of your house! Make sure it's a book you love because we will be asking for a little review soon! Good luck!

Here's Miss Humphreys on the sofa researching what to cook for tea!

Today's challenge is to do something nice for someone. Here are some ideas below although feel free to do one of your own ideas!

1. Read or tell a story to a younger brother or sister

2. Tidy your room

3. Do a chore or job for someone at home

4. Give someone a compliment

5. Share a toy or some food with someone at home

6. Make someone a present, picture or card

7. Offer to help an adult with the cooking or washing up

8. Write someone a poem or story

9. Tell someone a joke

10. Phone a friend or send them a nice message

See how many of the 10 you can do and remember to let us know what you have done!

I'm going to do some baking for my husband for my good deed and maybe make him a nice dinner as well. In fact, I might go and take him a cup of tea while he's doing his work! :-)

Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Glover

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone is finding ways to enjoy this amazing weather, I don't think we've ever had such a nice April before!

So today's wellbeing challenge is another way to make the most of the weather and get out in your gardens and do some gardening!

Here are some nice ideas for things to do that you don't really need many resources for: https://www.gardenersworld.com/how-to/grow-plants/10-gardening-projects-for-kids/ 

I bet you'll already have a lot of the things in your house or garden or you could collect some of them like twigs etc while out on a walk (make sure you wash your hands after if you do that!)  My favourite is the fairy garden.

Alternatively you could plant some seeds from something that you've just eatedn such as tomato seeds.

If you don't have a garden then why not design and draw your own garden (or fairy garden!) instead? You could maybe try and re-create it when you're older and have your own garden!

I have a balcony rather than a garden and had never done any gardening until a few weeks ago but below are a couple of pictures of the things I've planted! I'm watering them every day and the sun is making most of them grow nice and tall.

Have fun and remember to let us know what you've done!

Good morning, Happy Wednesday everyone! I can't believe it's already the middle of the week.

Since we have such lovely weather today (and for most of the week!) my challenge for you today is to get outside and enjoy the sun and see what you can see!

Some of you may be lucky enough to have a garden and if you do then you can do my challenge from there but a walk would be even better and then you can be more active too. Yesterday I went for a lovely walk to Philips Park as I'm lucky enough to only live a 20 minute walk away, see some of my pictures below.

While you're out either in your garden or your walk, have a spring scavenger hunt to see what you can see. Why not get an adult to take a picture of the list on their phones so you can take it with you and see what you can tick off? Or maybe write them on a piece of paper and take it with you so you can tick off the items as you go!

On my walk I saw grass, bird nests, yellow flowers, clouds, worms, sticks, green leaves, dandelions and some beautiful blossom trees too. I didn't see any bunnies unfortnatey but I did see some cute little squirrels!

Make sure you e-mail your class e-mail addresses to let us know what you found and maybe even some photos too.

Here are some pictures of my walk:
