Welcome to the Home Learning Page for Mr Brereton's Brilliant Beech Class! smiley

Week commencing 6th July

To Beech Class,

Well done to everyone who took part in the National School Sport Week activities. I added up the points from all the events and in the end it was very close. Well done to Moore House but Shakespeare and Nightingale were not too far behind.

At school we have been taking part in the Olympic Mix activities. We have enjoyed testing our football, volleyball, athletics and gymnastics skills. You can also complete these activities at home and enter your scoresheets for the chance to win prizes. You can find the activity resources and details for how to enter on the class page.

The next homelearning task sheet (Week 16) includes activities such as acting out a story, writing instructions about how to plant seeds, drawing graffiti based on Banksy’s work, making a foil bird and carrying out a traffic survey. I look forward to seeing your work.

Stay positive and work hard!

Double thumbs up everybody! yesyessmiley

RESULTS of National School Sport Week June 20-26th 2020

Well done to all those who took part in National School Sport Week. It was great to see so many children at Budbrooke Primary School being active and challenging themselves to achieve their personal bests. I’m sure it was the same for all those who participated at home.

 

The activities included challenges such as moving items with your feet, hopping to different points of the star, jumping your height, using your memory to remember items, throwing items into a target and running to cones in a set time. The challenges tested all of your sporting skills!

I have collated all of the scores and the final results are…..

Dear Parents/Carers,

With the Olympics being moved to 2021 the CSW School Games Organisers wanted to give young people the Olympic experience.

 They have selected 4 Olympics sports Football, Gymnastics, Athletics and Sitting Volleyball and have created age related challenges for all, supported by superstar athletes. Each sport has a challenge to complete and a support video showcasing an elite athlete.

The CSW Virtual Olymp-Mix is an opportunity for pupils to engage in competition at School and at home. All Competitions are open to pupils from Reception-KS4. All the information needed to take part is attached to this e-mail as a PDF.

 The Olymp-Mix will go live on Monday 29th June at 9:45am with entries closing at 1pm on Friday 10th July.

 Results will be announced on Monday 13th July via the @ThinkActiveCSW Twitter page at 1pm. Each competitor will receive an e-certificate and there is also a chance to win individual prizes and a prize for the school.

I have attached resources for you to use with your children at home. Alongside the sporting competitions there is also a School Games values competition, for Primary schools to design a flag where entries can be sent via – https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CSWFlag

Good luck and enjoy being active,

Mr Brereton

Week 15: 29th - 3rd July

To Beech Class,

I hope you enjoyed taking part in the Rainbow Games Challenge this week as part of National School Sport Week. At school we had lots of fun practising our jumping, hopping, throwing, running and memory skills and then recorded the scores for each event. The theme for this week was ‘perseverance’ so we thought of ways to keep on going even when things appeared difficult. Beech Class showed a great positive attitude and we then saw if we could beat our personal best scores for each activity.

Remember the scoresheets for those taking part at home are be completed with the child’s name and school house- Moore, Nightingale or Shakespeare- and entered here by 29th June 2020. I will then be able to collate the scores and see which house wins overall.

 

The next homelearning task sheet (Week 15) includes activities such as reading Who’s Afraid of the Quite Nice Wolf, writing your own version of Little Red Riding Hood, drawing local landmarks in Warwick, finding out about different parts of a plant and playing fun games. I look forward to seeing your work.

 

There will also be Olympic Mix activities coming soon so keep your eyes peeled for an email containing all the information about how to enter the summer sports competition which will include football, volleyball, athletics and gymnastics. Information will also be available to see on the class page.

It is a great opportunity for you to be active and achieve your personal bests.

Stay positive and work hard!

Double thumbs up everybody!

Mr Brereton

Hello Beech Class,

I hope you are all well and enjoying your time at home and finding the home learning tasks exciting.  It has been lovely to see the majority of year 1s back at school but I am still missing all those working at home. Congratulations to all those who entered Budbrooke’s Got Talent. I was very proud of all the entries from Beech. We have a talented class!

We have given you lots of exciting new activities for Week 13. You can recite nursery rhymes about bakers and baking as well as writing your own rhyming couplets on a cooking theme.  For geography, you can use satellite imaging tools to look at a number of aerial images of Hampton Magna and list and describe the features and landmarks. For history you can describe how the old-fashioned baker’s shops differ from today’s giant supermarkets and write your opinions about the positive and negative effects of large supermarkets on small independent retailers. I will also be interested to see all the different types of plants you have in your garden and your local area.

Your home learning books will look fantastic. I have already seen a few and I am very proud of the level of care you have shown. I am looking forward to seeing them all soon.

Also remember to upload homework that you are proud of to the class page.

Week 10: 25th May- 29th May

I hope you have had a good week and have enjoyed your time at home. It will be interesting to hear all the new skills you have been learning. Maybe you have had time to learn to play an instrument, speak a new language, bake a delicious cake, plant seeds or even make a bird feeder. There are lots of life skills you can learn that will stay with you forever. I look forward to hearing about them when we next see each other.

Thank you for the homework you have uploaded. It has been lovely too see photos of the work you are proud of. You can be very proud of your efforts.

For the next homelearning task sheet we would like you to prioritise the core subjects such as English, Maths and Reading. Once you have completed these tasks, it is then up to you to choose from the selction of topic tasks.

CSW School Games Virtual Challenge

Hello all,

It is great to see that lots of children from Budbrooke have been having a go at the School Games Virtual Athletics Competition. I have been enjoying trying to beat my personal best for the standing long jump and the 10x5m shuttle sprint challenge. There is still time to enter before the 1pm deadline on Friday 15th May and there is also the chance to win prizes. Follow the link on the attached information sheets.

I have now received information about the second CSW School Games Virtual Competition which will take place next week (May 18th-22nd). 

Please see the attached information for how to compete and how to enter the competition. It would be super to see as many as possible from Team Budbrooke having a go.

Enjoy the challenge,

Mr Brereton

Week 9: 18th May - 22nd May

Hello Beech Class,

I hope you have had a good week and enjoyed the VE Day celebrations. Maybe you made flags and bunting, baked a World War 2 treat, had a safe street party and sang "We'll Meet Again".

I am looking forward to the time when we can meet again.  Thank you to those who uploaded their work. It has been lovely to see how hard you have been working and you can all be proud of your achievements. Thank you to all those who wished Samuel a happy birthday.

Samuel has been having a lovely birthday (May 12th). We made him a carrot cake in the shape of a number one. (I will upload a photo for you to see). He opened his presents which included a huge paddling pool, lots of books and a sandpit. I found the instructions for how to build the sandpit very tricky to follow. Maybe you could write a set of instructions that are easier to follow! 

This week's tasks include designing your own sea creature, finding out facts about seaweed and making your own desert island out of Lego/junk modelling and even singing a seaside song. I know you are all very creative and I look forward to seeing photos of your handywork. What name will you give your island? What would you find on the island? How would you describe it?

Remember to try your best and give it your all. If you find an activity tricky, keep practising and you will get better and better. I had a go at drawing computer game characters for my friend's birthday card. It was difficult to start with but I focused, tried my best and was proud of my efforts. 

Have you had a go at the CSW School Games Virtual Challenge? It is a great opportunity for you to achieve your personal bests. 

Stay positive and work hard!

Double thumbs up everybody! yesyessmiley
