Good morning year 3. We hope that you have all had a great week off in the sunshine. We can’t wait to hear from you all and find out what you have been doing and see some of your great learning. This week we have decided that our theme is going to be explorers. We will be looking at lots of different people who are significant in history, as they have discovered something or have been somewhere that nobody had ever been before. It is going to be a voyage of bravery, great discoveries and courage. I hope that you are all ready!

Your timetable for the week.

This week we are going to start each day with some PE with Joe Wicks. Tune in live to watch him get the nation up and jumping around.

After PE and reading it is then time for your maths challenge. Don’t forget to check the answers at 3pm. Good luck!

After maths it is time for topic. Today we are going to be looking at the explorer Ibn Battuta. I would like you to find out why he is known as a famous explorer, where he went and what he did. Here are some topic words to help you.

After lunch I would then like you to use all of the information that you found out about Ibn Battuta and create your own factfile all about him. You could use paper or you could even create a powerpoint on the computer if you have one available.

After that busy day of learning it is time to relax and make sure that we are keeping our minds healthy. You could listen to some music and do the wordsearch below, draw a picture, colour or just simply close your eyes and take some deep breaths.

We are both so proud of you all, so please keep up the hard work.

Don’t forget to tell your family how amazing they are too!

We can’t wait to hear from you all. Don’t forget to email us at…. year3@bowkervale.manchester.sch.uk.

May Half Term

Thank you so much to all our wonderful teachers, pupils and families who have all been so amazingly brilliant over this last half term. You have all been Resilient Rangers and adapted so skillfully to this new way of schooling.

Today is the last day of term and we break up for a weeks holiday. It’s time for everyone to pack up their work stations and have a proper break, enjoy the outdoors and hopefully the lovely weather. The blog will resume again after the holidays on Monday 1st June, but for now….over and out!

Look after yourselves and each other.

Well Year Six, what an unusual half term it has been! As next week is the half term holidays for us all there will be no work set on the blog. The past few months have been strange and at times worrying for all of us. Below are links to some lovely mindfulness activities that I think you may enjoy.

We hope you all have a lovely week. Relax, look after each other, be kind to yourselves and stay safe. Mrs Pendleton & Miss Dunleavy. x

Fun facts – Greatest Hits

This is just bit of fun before we break up. Each morning in Year 4, Aiden Greenwood would delight the class with a fun fact. Lockdown hasn’t stopped him. He has continued to post in a fact a day thus providing the Year 4 team with a smile and a sense of normality! Thank you Aiden, here are a few of his best.

Some sensational, some surprising and some just plain silly – but they are real facts…
