Dancing Men

In this lovely weather, and after the storms, there are many twigs lying around on the ground.  Even in your own back yard, or on the pavements.  If you are out and about doing your daily exercise or walking your dog.  How many dancing men can you find?

Collect them, dress them with leaves and other natural materials. Take pictures and upload them onto the facebook page, Sustainable Outdoor Learning!

Ext:  For more focused learning how about measuring the angles between each joint?  Are they acute or Obtuse (A CUTE little angle or O my goodness thats Obtuse!)  Can you see any reflex angles? (Laid back and relaxed)

Measure the height of your men.  Can you give them ‘heads?'

                                                                                                          

PSHE Think about the last two weeks. What have you done that has made your proud?

Think back to when you were at school. What learning makes you most proud when you think about it? Set as a 2do. See example below.

 

Complete anything left over in your pack.

TTRockstars practise 3P are currently winning the battle between 3B and 3P!

 

Stone Balance Towers
 

For adults and children, if you have access to a pebble beach, or maybe some stones in the garden then give this a go and see how high you can go! It seems simple but every time they’ll look unimpressed, and then subsequently spend hours building their own... it’s a winner!

 

This is surprisingly addictive! Miss Boulain can vouch for this. The second photo attached below was one she made alongside the river at Zion in Utah. It may not be giant, but it was pretty!

 

If you can, then please share a photo with us via the Year 3 email or https://www.facebook.com/SustainableOutdoorLearning/

 

IMPORTANT

 

If you are going out to do any outdoor activities you MUST distance yourself from others! If you can’t because of where you live then don’t go out!

 

Art- NHS Nightingale are requesting children's drawings. They are requesting pieces featuring a rainbow and cheerful messages for the wards.

Rainbows for Nightingale

Ramsgate

Here is some more information

Nightingale hospital in London is open and ready to help the UK and NHS deal with the growing demand of coronavirus.

But while this is an uncertain time for many, the NHS staff and creators of the centre have a job for our children to help cheer everyone up - rainbow pictures.

Why are people putting rainbow pictures in their windows during coronavirus pandemic?

They want rainbows for Nightingale hospital to decorate the place in order to keep all the patients smiling while they get over the virus.

So what exactly is it you need to do? And what address should you send the rainbows for Nightingale to? Here’s everything you need to know:

NHS rainbows: Volunteers are helping to gather the pictures for the Excel centre. Picture: NHS Nightingale/Facebook

Rainbows for Nightingale: What do you need to do

You and your little ones need to get crafty with an A4 piece of paper creating your prettiest rainbows and messages of positivity.

There’s no restrictions on how many you draw and they’re encouraging you to write messages of hope or well wishes on them too.

If possible, they’re asking all pictures be laminated, for germ purposes, before sending but don’t worry if not, the volunteers for the programme can also do it.

Use sticks, grass, leaves, pebbles and mud to create your home. Think about properties of the materials you are using. Which natural material would make a good roof? Is it waterproof? Can you test it? Are the walls strong? Wind-proof?

Please remember to photograph your finished houses and share them with us!

 

Art

Get creative make your own roads or make your own egg pebbles. Felt tips would work and you could find an alternative for lollypop sticks. A cardboard box cut into thin pieces could work..

Science

Task 2

Because plants all have different needs, some have evolved to live in specific locations.

  • What sort of plants can live in a hot desert?  What adaptations do they have to enable them to survive?
  • What plants would you find in an Arctic region? What is special about plants in cold climates?
  • How have plants adapted to suit a wet rainforest, where the sky is hidden by tall, thick tree foliage?
  • What happens to plants in windy locations, like on The Burren in Ireland or in Iceland?

See if you can research some of these different climates and the plant life you can find there.

Can you think of any other climates where the flora (plant life) has had to adapt to survive?

 

PSHE  Complete the drawing of your family set as a 2do on purple mash.

Complete the positive and negative emotions activities set as a 2do on purple mash.

Can you do something helpful around the house? Maybe clean part of the house,  help make dinner or clean the car?

Science - Useful video link What Plants Need to Survive:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/Mf5rhbTkHLZ3fbJzScyDvC/primary-science-plants

 

Just like humans, plants need certain things to be able to live!  Different plants need different amounts of the following:

  • a plant needs to be able to breathe;
  • a plant needs moisture;
  • a plant needs nutrients;
  • a plant needs light.

 

Research what happens to a plant if they get too much or too little of any of the above.

For example, most plants need some watering, but what happens if you water too little?  And will the plant be happy if you give it hundreds of litres of water?

What would happen if you kept a plant in a dark cupboard?  And would it be affected if it was in brilliant sunshine 24 hours a day?

 

Can you do something helpful around the house? Maybe play games with your younger sibling, tidy up, dry up or help make dinner?
