If you are looking for inspiration over the next two weeks, we have compiled below a range of projects / fun activities you could engage in this Easter. We will add ideas throughout the Easter Holidays! Remember, please do keep sending in anything you get up to: admin@ruyton.shropshire.sch.uk (photos work best). Happy Easter.

Happy Easter!

From all your Ruyton teachers 🙂

Dragonfly Class – last day of term 🐣

We made it! Well done and thank you to each and every one of you have logged in to the school website to complete home learning activities over the past two weeks. We will have a little ‘break’ from our daily learning for Easter holidays, as we always do, and get back to lots more in a fortnight.

I’ve been sent some brilliant emails about what you’ve been up to – thank you for making this effort and keeping me entertained!

Here are your suggested activities for the day (based on our normal Friday timetable):

  1. Maths: Log into My Maths and complete today’s set activity (remember to aim for 100% by practising tasks if needed.
  2. English: Log into Reading Eggs and continue reading the set book.
  3. History: Time Capsule! We are currently living in a very strange time but one that will be remembered in history! You could begin to make a ‘time capsule’ – find an object that you could fill with things but made of a material that will last. What will you put in it? How will you remember these first weeks? What’s important to you? You could add to your time capsule as the weeks go on.

Other ideas for Friday:

  • PE: Make extra-special use of your exercise time to learn a new skill or spend extra energy! It’s brilliant for your mental health.
  • TT Rockstars:  The Inter House Tournament continues! Play ‘Battle’ to earn your team points.

Over Easter, TT Rockstars, Number Gym and all the programmes we use will still be available for you to use. But of course, there’s lots of other things to ‘learn’ – I’ve heard about children learning to make beds properly, doing the washing and even mastering their own ‘family meal’. Sounds like an eggstremely good thing to do, eggstraordinary use of your holidays!

Have a great fortnight – stay safe, be kind and share your smiles. I’m missing you very much – last day of Spring term is one of my favourites in school.

Enjoy 🐣

Dragonfly Home Learning ideas 2.4.20

Good morning everyone,

Well done to those of you logging in to TT Rockstars for your house… some of the matches are looking close! Looking at it, some of you have scored massive points for your time (yes, I’m talking about the Maths Wizard and Sam!) But every little helps – Anouk, Katie, Eva – keep adding up those points like you have done this week 👏🏻

As a reminder, make sure you’re following the internet safety advice we teach and practise in school (and also shared on website).

Here are your suggested activities for the day (based on our normal Thursday timetable):

  1. Maths: Log into My Maths and complete today’s set activity (remember to aim for 100% by practising tasks if needed)
  2. English: Log into Reading Eggs and begin reading the set book.
  3. Number Gym: Can you achieve Lightning Bolt Speed and beat Bond Builder.
  4. RE: We’ve suggested making an ‘Easter project’ on your menu – you continue this or try out a new one. I’ve seen some yummy baking ideas including a non-bake cheesecake made in an Easter egg 😍

Other ideas for Thursday:

  • Music: Practise your own choice of instrument if you have one.
  • TT Rockstars:  The Inter House Tournament continues! Play ‘Battle’ to earn your team points.

Two days left of this very strange term. My daily runs / bike rides are really helping me, whilst I’m taking the chance to do things I don’t usually have time to such as playing the piano 🎹 (watch out Mrs Hindson!) I hope you’re spending time doing lots of things that make you happy too. Miss you all,

Miss Whit 🙂

Monday (am) Dragonfly Class 30.03.20

Good morning Dragonflies!

I hope you’ve had a great weekend. I’ve been extra busy! I’ve planted a whole new hedgerow (with the help of Ginger the chicken stealing all the worms) and had two lovely runs with Briar (although she was more like ‘Captain Chaos’ – some training is required!)

I hope you’ve all had chance to check-out the TT Rockstar results? Well done to everyone who played for their team. Round Two has begun!

 

Here are your suggested activities for the day (based on our normal timetable):

  1. Reading: Continue with your reading book. Could you read an extra chapter today?
  2. Spellings: Choose 3 words to learn. Most of you can do this from your word lists (in Home Packs). Those of you who’ve completed these lists, find 3 new words for the day. Challenge: You could write them in a graffiti-style…
  3. Maths: Log into My Maths and complete today’s set activity (remember to aim for 100% by practising tasks if needed)
  4. English: Log into Education City and complete today’s set English task.

Other ideas for Monday:

  • PE: What’s your favourite song? Create a dance routine to it!
  • Languages (usually French): Can you find out how to say ‘thank you’ in 5 different languages? Here’s mine: “Grazie”…. But what language is this?!
  • TT Rockstars:  The Inter House Tournament Round 2 has begun! Play any game to earn your team points.
  • Activity Menu: You might like to continue of the activities from your menu.

I hope you all have a good day and don’t forget to do your bit to help at home. Remember, if there’s anything you’d like to share then you can send it to school through the school admin address.

Take care, all of you. Be safe and keep busy.

Miss Whit 🙂
