In today’s computing lesson, we have been discussing why spending too much time using technology can be bad for us. Computers, Ipads and mobile phones are great to use, but we must remember other priorities too such as school work and spending time with family and friends. Can you tell me what have you learnt today 3B?
This week we have been working on addition and subtraction. We started off using number lines adding and subtracting tens and ones, and we have even moved onto the column method! Miss Bimson has been very impressed with our calculation work! 🙂 Keep it up!
In our computing lesson this afternoon, we have read ‘Technology Tail’ and discussed how things we share online can always be tracked back to the real us. Any information or pictures we post online can be copied by anybody, and even if we delete something, there may still be a copy of it somewhere we don’t know about.
We also watched episode 3 on ‘Play, Like, Share’ and looked at why we shouldn’t meet strangers.
Today, we carried out our sports afternoon in the hall. We all took part in many races including running, egg and spoon, bean bag and ball bouncing! We had lots of fun and got stickers for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th!
Everyone cheered on their teams for trying their best!
Today, we took part in a poetry workshop with Matt Goodfellow, it was really fun!
Matt is a children’s poet and he has written lots of poems. He shared some of his poems with us and we got the opportunity to write our very own poem called ‘If I were’. We thought about our favourite foods, animals, lessons and sports to come up with 4 verses.
This week, as part of our physical activity, we have started the ‘Bolton Mile’. We now have a 1 mile track which we work our way around at the start of every PE lesson. We have been timing each other and we are going to see if we can beat our times!
In our computing lesson this afternoon, we have been talking about online games we all enjoy. We have been thinking about ways to keep safe online and if we are able to spot positive and negative behaviours when we are online.
Can you remember which key vocabulary words we have clarified today? What should you do if you come across negative behaviours online? Who can you tell if you are worried?
This year we have done a lot of work on how to stay safe online in our computing and PHSE lessons. With so many of you doing your school work at home, I thought it would be a good time to check that you are all remembering to be SMART!
Children’s Art Week is a UK-wide programme run by Engage, the National Association for Gallery Education. In 2020, Children’s Art Week will take place online, at home and in schools across three weeks in June and July.
Each week will focus on a special theme…
Week 1 (from 29 June): The Natural World Week 2 (from 6 July): Connecting across generations Week 3 (from 13 July): Literacy and creative writing
Schools, galleries, museums and community groups will plan arts activities that will give children and young people, together with their teachers, parents and carers, the opportunity to take part in practical art activities with artists, makers and educators.
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted how essential creativity and the visual arts are for learning, feeling connected and our mental wellbeing. So let’s take this opportunity to get drawing, stencilling, colouring and painting!
Take a picture of your artwork and post it on the blog for us all to enjoy.
The annual National School Sport Week campaign takes place in the last week of June every year to celebrate the important role of Physical Education and school sport to young people’s wellbeing.
This year, the Youth Sport Trust has teamed up with Sky Sports to run a national campaign to celebrate the power of sport to bring people together, even during these unprecedented times with isolation and social distancing.
Are you up for a sporting challenge? Have you thought about connecting with your families, friends and neighbours by taking part in virtual sporting challenges?
Hi 2C, This week your teachers are writing your reports and thinking back on how well you have all done this year. You should be very proud and we cannot wait for you to read them 🙂
We would like you to comment on this post, thinking back about your year in 2C. You can comment about something you have enjoyed doing this year in school (smiley rewards, trips, workshops, a special lesson that you can remember) or something that you are thankful for.
REMEMBER.. the blogging competition is still on. Therefore, if you try hard to make your comment extra special, you could be in with a chance to win a £50 voucher for Argos!
This weekend marks the end of Ramadan and the breaking of the fast festival, Eid al-Fitr. This is one of the most important festivals of the year for Muslims and many children in Year 2C and will be taking part in the celebrations.
Unfortunately, the need for social distancing will prevent some family members from being together this year and the community will be unable to meet for prayer at mosque. Instead, prayers will take place at home, gifts will be shared by post and celebrations held virtually with friends and family.
We would love to hear all about your Eid…
Did you get new clothes? What gifts and cards did you receive? What foods did you enjoy? What else did you do to celebrate?
Wednesday 20th May 2020 is National Thank a Teacher Day!
Teachers work hard all year around to make school a happy, fun and safe place to learn. Even though school is currently closed for most children, your teachers are still working; setting and marking your home learning, preparing for when it is safe to return to school and taking care of key worker children.
National thank a teacher day is a chance for everyone to say thank you to special teachers that have helped them to learn and grow.
Would you like to send a message, card or picture to one or all of teachers? They would love to hear from you! You can either download a template from this website or come up with a design of your own.
Have you been remembering to get outside for a daily walk or other form of exercise like riding your bike? Have you been keeping fit with Joe Wicks or joining in with your clubs and hobbies online?
It’s tempting to sit around all day doing our school work, watching TV and playing games but we all feel happier, healthier and more energetic if we increase our activity level.
I promise that being exercise doesn’t have to be boring or take ages either! Remember that anything that gets your body moving and makes you feel slightly out of breath is really good for your body and mind.
Here is a link to some fun active challenges that only take 1 minute each…
As you know, Mrs Clarke loves to read and it occurred to me the other day, when I saw this quote in school, that it has never been so relevant to our lives.
We might all be at home much more than we are used to but that doesn’t mean that we can’t travel! Armed with our imagination and a good book, we can can go anywhere and meet anyone, at any time in history…How amazing is that!
Have you been reading at home? What is your favourite story?
May is National Share a Story Month, so why not join in the celebrations by sharing a story with someone special? You could read a story to your grandparents on a videocall, to your neighbour over the fence or your siblings at bedtime…Where will a story take you? Blog and let me know!
The World Health Organisation’s third Walk the Talk event will be held 16th -17th May 2020, to promote health and well-being for people all over the world. In light of COVID-19, the WHO are taking their Health for All Challenge online this year meaning that even more people can join in from their homes – including you!
The Virtual Walk the Talk will support ongoing efforts to promote ways for people to be #HealthyAtHome, encouraging all of us to engage in activities that promote good physical and mental health, including healthy diets, hand washing and mental health awareness.
Timings of events, including yoga, exercise classes, meditation and walking that can all be done in the comfort of your front room, can be found on the WHO website using the link below.
However, why wait until 16th May? Take the opportunity, while we are having such beautiful, sunny weather to get out and about for some fresh air and exercise. There are lots of lovely places that you can walk to with your grown ups. Just remember to keep a safe social distance of at least 2m from people who do not live with you.
While you are walking, take the time to notice the world around you. What can you see, hear and smell? Talk about nice things with your grown up and enjoy making memories together. As a bonus you’ll feel refreshed and alert when you get home!
Have you been for a walk every day? Where have you been to? We would love to hear your news!
