Home Learning

During school closure, we will be posting daily updates here with information to support your child’s

Hello Maple Class,

Welcome back to the second half of the summer term. This term my challenges for you are slightly different. Instead of having daily tasks, I will be posting a weekly plan. This weekly plan will be filled with different activities and challenges for you to complete over the week. I am hoping that this will help you as a family plan your week ahead, and further support you all with the home learning process.

The Family Fun Friday will continue in the same format as last term.  We all hope you will continue to enjoy these fun Friday challenges. There are some exciting ones ahead…

You will see that I have also updated our class padlet. Do not worry, your work has not been deleted. It has been safely stored. Please continue to visit the padlet to share all the wonderful things you get up to.

Friday's Challenge

Hello everyone,

We can see that you have been working so hard at home to complete your daily challenges.  Each week on a Friday, we will be sending just 1 daily challenge for all 3 classes to complete together. You can complete these with whoever is in your home, inside or out, anything goes! Those of you who have brothers or sisters in the school, or at home, can play together, with or without your grown-ups to complete the challenges. These challenges may get a little loud or messy at times, but hopefully you will find them good fun!

We all look forward to seeing your pictures and videos on our class padlet pages.

Week Brginning 22nd June

Tuesday 23rd June is National Olympic Day, so this week you will be having a go at traditional games played from different Olympic nations. The 2020 Olympics was set to take part in Tokyo, Japan, so each day there will be a Japanese game and one from another country. There are a lot of countries that take part so I have selected a few.  On Friday you will have a Friday Challenge which will get you outside and exploring nature.
Here is the official Tokyo 2020 video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENMhrEVa4XQ When it does get to take place, it’s going to be INCREDIBLE!
What can you find out about Japan? Here are some questions as a starting point. Share in some of the things you found out about the host nation in your class padlets.
 Question board

What is Japan’s national sport?

How many active volcanoes are there in Japan?

What is a popular Japanese dish?

What popular Japanese activity means ‘empty orchestra’?

What does a traditional Japanese home have instead of walls?

What food is eaten almost every day in Japan?

What currency does Japan use?

Japan is one of the world’s biggest producer of what?

Traditionally, what do Japanese people sleep on at home?

What is one of Japan’s traditional dances?

How many islands make up Japan?

What is Japan’s traditional dress?

Monday:
Japan: Tokyo 10 Listen Up.
If you are in a school bubble, use your jumper as a blindfold or close your eyes. Your partner should use clapping to help get them to a chosen final destination.
Africa: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6UX0eGo4AU
Gather approximately 10 sticks (or as many as you like). You will need a ball (or as used in the video, a ball of bags, or even lots of pairs of socks). Choose one person who has to try and collect all the sticks. Everyone else has to work together to hit that person below the waist. Whoever is successful in making contact then has to try and collect all the sticks. It can take more than one go to collect all the sticks. If you manage to collect them all without being hit, place them down on the floor and have another go- or as many goes as you like until you are hit. You get 1 point each time you pick them all up. Decide how many points is the target to win.
Non contact in school- individual stick per person. Play in pairs with one time keeper. Each child has 30 seconds to try and retrieve their stick. Their partner must do all they can to prevent them retrieving it. It is non contact so it is all about dodging. You can decide in your groups how many points you need in order to win! Make sure you keep changing around so that everyone gets a go at each element.

Tuesday
Japan: Tokyo Ten Kendama.
If you are in a school bubble, you could use a rolled up piece of paper or bring a sock ball from home. You will have to try this without a cup.
France: Un, deux, trois soleil- like grandmother’s footsteps. Mark out a length of at least 15-20 meters (depending on how much space you have. This is a little bit like the game what’s the time mr wolf. You have one person at one end who will shout Un, Deux, Trois, Soleil (Which means 1,2,3 Sun!). They will turn around and anyone caught moving will be sent to the start to try again. Everyone else must try and get to that person without being caught moving. They need to tag that person and run back to the start without being caught.
If you are in school, a non contact rule applies. Find a stick/stone as a marker and lay them out in line with the person shouting the instructions. You just need to get to your marker and then run back without being caught.
Petanque- This video explains how to play the game so you can have a go at home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSzQd0-g6so
If you are in a school bubble- have an individual pebble and aim towards a jack placed by the teacher.

Wednesday
Japan: TTT Active challenge play with no equipment
Anyone can do this as it requires no equipment
Spain: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fj5wslWkPdw Here are some traditional Spanish games for you to have a go at. You may recognise some of them. If you don’t have the equipment, you can improvise. For example The Frog- you can use whatever you like as a target to aim closest to. You can use sock balls or paper instead of balls for throwing activities.
If you are in a school bubble you will have to be selective about the activities you can try. Where possible try and improvise in a way that you don’t have to use any equipment. 

Thursday
Japan: Tokyo Ten Janken
Anyone can do this as it requires no equipment.
Caribbean: Goma- A game played with rubber bands where the object is to capture as many of the opponents' rubber bands as possible. Players stand facing a wall or other vertical flat surface and bounce their rubber bands off the wall. If a player's rubber band falls to the ground and overlaps any rubber bands currently on the ground, then the overlapped rubber bands are captured. Use as many rubber bands as you like.
The most popular game in the Caribbean is cricket. This can be played with 2 or more people. One person uses a bat/racket, pan or anything they can to shield their legs/feet from being hit. When the ball is thrown you need to hit the ball away. The more space you have, the better. If the batter is hit in the legs/feet they swap with the bowler. You can score by number of ball hit, the amount of time batting or you can create a space that the batter has to run between to score runs after after ball.

Years 1 and 2

This week you are testing your throwing skills. You will be focussing on aiming towards a target and working on the accuracy of throwing underarm.

Monday: Set a target. Using either balls, socks or shuttlecocks, see how many you throw and land in the target. If it’s too hard, move closer to the target or use a bigger target. To make it harder, stand further away or use a smaller target. You could play against a partner to see 1) who can land the most on the target. 2) Who can get all of theirs into the target first. 3) Who can hit the target from the furthest away.

Tuesday: with a partner, use a ball or pair of socks and see how many throws you can successfully make, without dropping it. If you don’t have a partner, how many can do you complete by yourself without dropping it? How many can you do in 30 seconds? See if you can beat your score or keep throwing and catching for as long as you can.  

Wednesday: using rolled up socks, aim to sink the oppositions ship. You could use a towel as a target and lay it on the floor. Stand roughly 5m apart, behind your towels. Agree how many socks/shuttlecocks are needed to sink their ship. Once you have thrown all your arrows (pairs of socks), a point is awarded to the winner if the ship is sunk.. Reset- and go again. If neither ship is sunk, reset and go again. Decide between you how many points you need to win.

Thursday: Create a ‘net’ by making a line on the floor using whatever you can find. If you already have a net, then you can use that. Make the playing area as big as you like. Mark out a court. Aim to hit the ball over the ‘net’ and land inside a target in the court. It can be as big or small as you like. You could also have more than 1 target. 1) see how quickly you can throw all your pairs of socks into the target. Can you beat that score? 2) play against a partner to see who can throw theirs into the target on the other side of the net, the quickest. 3) See how many throws and catches you can make, throwing over the net without dropping it.  

Friday: Paper fitness: watch the video to explain the rules. Have a few practices and then see what score you can get. Play against others in your household to see who can score the most points. Remember to throw underarm. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9XIGs_lu4g

Week Beginning 8th June

Reception

Here are some more activities for you to have a go at. You will be practicing your throwing and balancing this week. Good luck and keep moving!

Tuesday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kRnJzVjTd8 The floor is lava. Find something you want to save and create a circuit to save them. The floor is lava so you cannot touch the floor otherwise you must start again but you only have 3 lives. You can also then try creating a circuit outside for you to get across without touching the lava floor.
Wednesday: Warm up using this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALrdpsWYoJs Dino challenge:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5vj6jH4R_s If you don’t have a dinosaur, you can choose your favourite toy and follow along with the workout.
Thursday https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cv-n9au6pgM This is what you are aiming for. Start by picking up a pair of socks, standing on 1 leg. Now try picking up two pairs without putting your foot down. Then try with 3 and 4. When you are ready, try the challenge of picking up 4 pairs of socks as shown in the video. Maybe you could challenge someone else in your household.

Tuesday https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BA4XN3Pynig Sock ladder challenge: 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? You may want to challenge other people in your household to see if they can complete more than you. 
Wednesday: 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?

You may want to challenge other people in your household to see if they can complete more than you. 
Thursday: Warm up using this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALrdpsWYoJs  Dino challenge: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5vj6jH4R_s If you don’t have a dinosaur, you can choose your favourite toy and follow along with the workout.

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!

Water Safety

Hi everyone,  I hope you are all keeping well and staying active.  Unfortunately we are not able to go swimming at the moment, however this week is Drowning Prevention Week so I thought it would be nice to at least think about swimming and water safety.  There are some activities here that you may like to do, either print off, do in your books or on plain paper. 

When you are out and about near rivers, lakes or at the beach or playing in paddling pools, remember to follow the Water Safety Code to keep yourself and others safe around water.
