Class 3 Home Learning - Friday 22nd May

 

Hello Class 3, 

I hope you are enjoying our week of outdoor fun. To finish off this week and to give you plenty to do over the weekend, we'd like you to try and look after the butterflies by creating a feeder for them.

We love butterflies and enjoy sitting in our gardens watching them fluttering about and landing on their favourite flowers. This feeder is a very simple way to attract butterflies to your garden and allow you to have a closer look at all the different varieties.

You might want to take a picture of them and either create a sketch of your butterfly or if you have lots of photos, turn them into a butterfly resource book. 

As well as this we've included the link below from The Woodland Trust which has lots of great activities for you and your family to enjoy over the holiday:

We're looking forward to the amazing photos and art work, have a lovely week off and be safe.

Love

Mrs Rawlings and Mrs O’Callaghan

Class 3 Home Learning - Thursday 21st May

Birds feeding

Good Morning Class 3,  as the sun is shining now is a good time to enjoy watching the birds in your garden. A great way to do that is to create a simple Bird Feeder.

Many birds adore peanuts, but we have to be sure we use only unsalted  and unroasted Peanuts as the others  can lead to dehydration  And yes, you read that right - peanut butter is also beloved by many of our   friends. Crunchy varieties are fine, but stick to a no added salt variety - organic is ideal. 

Try these simple ways to make your own Bird Feeder

Cardboard Tubes

These can be small or large. Spread peanut butter across the cardboard tube and roll through seed mixture. The more peanut butter you put on the more seeds will get stuck. This can be placed or hung up in the garden.

Oranges

These can be cut in half and hung up as they are for fruit-eating birds. Alternatively, the fruit can be removed and the orange peel used to hold birdseed.

Apples

These can also be cut up and put out as they are, or they can be coated in peanut butter and birdseed before being suspended in a tree.

Pine Cones

Pine cones can be used in the same way as the cardboard tubes. Simply cover in peanut butter and roll through birdseed mix. As an extra treat small fruits such as grapes can also be added.

String

This is one of the simplest options. Using string to make a food necklace to hang up in the garden, this can include cereals and fruit such as cheerios and grapes.

Once you have finished building your feeder, hang it up and send us a picture and maybe even with of some of the birds using it. 

Enjoy watching the birds flock to sample your treats.

Class 3 – Build A Bird Nest – 20th May

Birdbox

Morning Class 3

Different types of birds lay their eggs in different places. Some build tiny nests in bushes, some build enormous nests in tall trees. Some lay their eggs directly on the ground or on rocky ledges. Those that build nests use many different types of materials. 

Build a bird’s nest challenge.

Collect twigs, grass, moss and similar nesting materials from your garden or during a walk. You will need a container to collect natural materials. Try using only your index and middle fingers on one hand to pick up the materials. This will mimic a beak. 

Find an area outside to build the nest. Your nest needs to be able to hold an egg. 

  • How strong can you make a bird’s nest?
  • Will your birds nest stay together in a wind? 
  • How deep does your nest need to be to keep the egg safe?
  • Would your bird’s nest be comfortable?
  • What happens if it rains?
  • Will water collect inside or drain away? 

Remember to dismantle your nest and leave the nesting materials for birds to use. 

Keep sharing pictures of your outdoor activities and you having fun.

Be fabulous and get nesting.

Mrs Rawlings and Mrs O’Callaghan

Class 3 – Journey Sticks - 18th May

Morning Class 3

When Aboriginal people oScreenshot 2020-05-15 at 16.50.41f Australia went on journeys, they collected objects along the way, tying them to the stick in chronological order. When they returned home, they used the stick to remember their journeys and told the story of their journey to friends and family.

Make your own journey stick featuring items collected whilst on a walk. These might be things like leaves, twigs, flowers, feathers, stones or anything else natural that you find along the way. Choosing a stick and attaching items to it using string or wool. Please only collect things that are on the ground.

Do you think you’ll have a go at making a journey stick on your next nature walk? Please send pictures of your journey stick for us to enjoy and share.

Be fabulous and enjoy the great outdoors.

Mrs Mason’s Monday Morning Message

Good morning children. I do hope you and your families are all keeping well. I miss seeing each and every one of you in our school every day and especially your smiles and hearing you laugh, play and learn together on our playgrounds and in our classrooms.

You have probably heard on the news and from your parents that some of you will soon be able to start back to school and that lots of people are arguing about this! At the moment there is lots to talk about so that we can all feel safe but I will be writing to both you and your parents as soon as I have more details. Until I can do that I don’t want you to worry but to keep working hard at home and enjoying this lovely sunshine.

Due to the lovely weather our theme this week is  ‘All things Outdoors!’ We want you to spend as much time as possible learning outside. Your teachers have planned lots of exciting activities for you and your family to get involved in because we know that some of you learn far better when you are outdoors! Also this week it is ‘Mental Health Awareness Week’ and being outside, keeping fit and healthy also helps you to keep happy too!

During the past few weeks while we were only allowed out once a day for exercise I went to Shipley Park many times on my bike. It was so beautiful to hear the birds sing and watch the flowers grow, especially as it was so quiet while everyone was at home. I took lots of photographs to share with you ! I hope you enjoy looking at them on this week’s little film. See if you can spot somewhere you have been in our wonderful country park. I’m sure you will enjoy this week’s song too. Make sure you sing along …… just like in our Monday morning Assembly!

 

The Great Smalley Bake Off - Week 2!

Once again you have amazed us with your baking skills! Thank you so much for all your efforts and sending in your photographs. Please continue to share your bakes over the next week using your class email, ready for another gallery next Friday.

Have a lovely weekend xx
