Take part in our cross-country competition!  Today marks the date where we would usually be taking part in our local derby race at Chiddingstone school.

To mark the occasion, the cross-country team would like to challenge all children to run/jog either 1km or 2km (your choice).

The teachers will award raffle tickets to anyone who takes part, and Mrs Murray has a special prize for the best effort and a prize for the cheeriest photo.

All you have to do is: choose your distance, complete the challenge, then post a photo below with a brief description of the course and conditions (eg were there any hills? was it muddy? what was the weather like?). Entries need to be submitted to our parent facebook page by Wednesday 13th May.

Tomorrow we are not at school; it is a bank holiday. Can you find out why tomorrow’s date is special?

Ask your parents to help you find articles explaining about VE day 75.

Create a poster to commemorate the special event! Are you doing anything tomorrow to celebrate? This is a nice idea...

Reading –

Oxford Owl have made available for parents all the ebooks linked to each RWI level. This means we no longer need to upload the books to the webpage. Instead, please go to the webpage below. If you go onto ‘ebooks’ then you will need to register (this is free of charge) and then you will be able to access all the ebooks and choose the correct banded level for your child. Please note that the RWI phonics scheme is based on lots of repetition. Therefore, we usually read the same book about 3 or 4 times before moving onto a new book. For some children they may need to read it more than this to ensure they are completely fluent in reading the book (no sounding out). 

Here is the link for the Oxford Owl reading.

This website also provides lots of other information for parents about phonics. It has other resources on here too should you wish to explore! 

 For every phonics session, please continue to watch the set 3 speed sounds at 10:30 on the Ruth Miskin Youtube channel. Then read a book from the webpage detailed above.

Guided reading –  for those of you in guided reading, please complete the guided reading task on ‘The Dragon Sitter’

11-11.15 2nd Breaktime - have a healthy snack and play.

Maths

Maths

To be able to create and interpret a block diagram

  1. I can draw and label the axis
  2. I can plot the blocks into the diagram
  3. I can explain what my diagram shows (interpret)

 

Watch my video showing you how to create your block diagram. You might find it easier to use the squared paper that I have attached to the webpage.

 

Once you have created your block diagram tell me what your diagram shows like I did in the video. E.g what was the most/ least popular? What surprised you? What didn’t surprise you? What was the lowest amount…? What was the highest amount….?

 

 

 

12.15-1.15 Lunchtime and playtime  
1.15-2:15

Experience

To apply my understanding of exercise to create an exercise video

  1. I can say why exercise is important
  2. I can demonstrate some exercises
  3.  I can say which parts of the body the exercise works

 

  • Film your video!
  • Re-watch your video and use the checklist on the webpage to assess your video. Is there anything you could do to improve your video?
  • Re-film your exercise video.
  • Once you are happy with your video, send it to me. If you can’t send it via email because it is too large, then ‘wetransfer’ or ‘google drive’ are useful platforms if you would like to use them.

I can't wait for next week when we will be able to do each other's exercise routines for our PE sessions!! 

2:15 - 2:30

Story time – join Mrs Clarke for Storytime. We are sharing stories across the Federation! 

 

 

 

 

 

2:30 - 3 

Mrs Hunt (our music leader) has uploaded music videos to our website (curriculum – music). Every Friday afternoon we would like the children to practise the songs.   

Mrs Hunt will be uploading new ones every now and then. The idea is that when we get back to school, we can have a celebratory singing concert. If your child would like to record themselves singing, please email clips to Mrs Chloe Hunt at: chunt@four-elms.kent.sch.uk. The clips will then be collated into a video.
