ABOUT the Challenge

The idea of the #ActiveHomeWeek challenge is to:

·        Reach out to parents/guardians to support the work that is taking place in their school

·        Support parents by providing them with ideas and a challenge format to encourage children to build physical activity into their day

·        Encourage children to find NEW ways of being physically active that they ENJOY

·        Raise awareness about the fact that children need at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day

To complete the challenge children have to find four different ways of being active every day making sure that this add up to 60 MINUTES, or more. Children are encouraged to try something NEW, have FUN with a family activity and to ENJOY the week!

 

IDEAS

There are so many great physical activity suggestions in circulation at the moment from local/national sports clubs, role models and agencies that we decided to organise them into an IDEAS word cloud graphic. All of the activities in the word cloud can be viewed ‘in action’ and ‘in the one place’ @activeflag  The Twitter feed includes activities to suit children of all ages, abilities and interests with indoor and outdoor options and ideas about how to make sports equipment out of every day household items. It’s definitely worth a look

The word cloud is designed to make it easy for parents and children to find ways to complete the challenge, but children don’t have to stick with just these ideas. They can use activities, not listed here, that they are already doing or create new activities of their own. You might decide as a school to suggest activities or to create your own school/teacher challenges! 

CHALLENGE Charts

 

Parents are welcome to return the completed challenge charts to your school in whatever manner is easiest for them, and in whatever way that suits your school best.

School work at home for Ms. O’ Leary’s Class

20th – 24th April 2020

Note from your teacher:

Hi Boys,

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and that you are all safe and well. The weather was beautiful over the holidays. I hope you all enjoyed being out in the sun and of course the tasty Easter treats over the past two weeks.

The plan going forward is that we will prepare and assign work on a weekly basis and you can complete this work at whatever time and in whatever order works best for you and your family. You can then upload the work to Seesaw so that I can see all the wonderful work that you are doing.

Any pictures/videos/voice notes you post to Seesaw can’t be seen by other students.

Worksheets will be emailed to your school Outlook email address on Monday. You can either print these documents or write the answers in a copy or on a page.

Ms. Owens and I have also recorded videos which will explore new topics being taught this week. These videos will be posted on Seesaw in the journal section. Finally, I will be assigning new tasks/games for you to complete on Seesaw. Keep an eye on the journal and activities sections on the Seesaw app/website for updates.

If you have any questions throughout the week or issues with login details/email access/uploading work, please do not hesitate to contact me @ coleary@charlevillecbsprimary.ie

Keep up the amazing work boys.

Take care and I hope to see you all very soon.

From,

Ms. O’ Leary

Drama/Oral Language Pretend you visit a pet shop where you see all the pets you saw in your Irish work this week.

Create and act out a piece of drama using loads of interesting sentences that tell the story of you entering the shop, talking to the shop keeper, picking out your pet of choice, paying using your money and then leaving the shop.

Perhaps something interesting or funny may happen when you are in the pet shop. For example, maybe you forgot your money or maybe the pet shop owner opened the cage with the hamsters and then all the hamster escaped.

If you would like to create another drama, you could create and act out a piece of drama where you bring your pet to a destination on your ‘Tourist Map of Ireland’ as seen in your Small World book on pg.70.

If you would like to record a video of your drama and upload it to your account on Seesaw, Ms. Crookes and I would love to see your creations

Well done to all the boys for working hard over the past two weeks. I have received lovely emails from boys and I’m really impressed with all the books they have read on Get Epic. We have finished 350 books in two weeks. This is amazing news.

Last week our task of the week was ‘learning how to tie our shoelaces’. We may need to work on this skill again this week. I have also set a new task for this week which is to ‘make your own bed every morning’. Best of luck!

Keep up the good work boys and if you have any questions no matter how small please email me.

Hoping to see you all soon.
