Teachers' Weekly Updates

 
30.3.20
 
Good Morning Willows!  How was your weekend?  Did you manage to get active?  My girls challenged themselves to do 1000 bounces on the trampoline - I was tired just watching them!
 
As well as carrying on with your activities on TimesTable Rockstars, Purple Mash, Active Learn, Accelerated Read etc, I have a new challenge for you this week.
 
I would like you to build a den.  It can be an inside den or an outside den.  You could use blankets and chairs and tables - but ask your adults first!  When you've built your den, you could do some of your work in it.  Please take a photo and pop it on our Twitter (@Riverside_Pri) or email it to alwaysariversider@riverside.wirral.sch.uk  
 
Remember to tidy everything away when you are done.   The girls and I will join in the challenge too - I may hide in the den for a long time.
 
Happy den building!

Good Morning Willows!  So, it's not strictly a week since our last update but, it's Wednesday, and that means Mr Dodd's Assembly.  Tune in here - https://youtu.be/_GYvaNgMXOA - at 9.30am.

Good morning Willows!  Have you all had a good weekend?  We are now on Day 10 of self-isolation and we need some exercise for sure!  This week, I would like you to continue working on your work packs which we sent home.  I would also like you to be active! 

 

You can start by heading over to Wake up Shake up with Mrs Weatherall - turn your speakers up!  Then, everyday at 9am, there will be 30 minutes of children's PE available from The Body Coach YouTube Channel - check here for the daily videos.  Everyone can join in.

 

Please remember to share any work you have been doing, or activities you have been getting up to.  Your parent can do this using their social media and using the #AlwaysARiversider.  Remember not to include any names on the post - for safeguarding.  You can also check our Twitter - @Riverside_Pri for info and updates.

 

Make sure you check out your Year Group page, too, for extra ideas and challenges.

Get active!

Good morning Riversiders! It's Mrs Lahive here!
 
Hope you and your family are all keeping well. On this page your class teacher is going to be setting you weekly challenges every Monday.
 
Your first challenge is to make a start on your work pack that you took home from school, and do a little act of kindness for someone everyday.
I want you to do this like the five star Riversider you are.
 
On Monday your teacher will set you your next challenge.
For each weekly challenge you complete there will be 100 points awarded.
 
When we get back to school we are going to take all of you who have made a five star effort with your challenges, on the trip of a lifetime!
Challenges will include all sorts of things such as spellings, times tables, art and staying healthy exercises. You do not want to miss out!
 
Love to you all,
Can't wait for us all to be safely back in school xx

Hello Willows!
 
This is your 3rd day of no school - how is it going?  Me and the girls are on Day 5 of self-isolation and today we found a great draw-along activity.  The author and illustrator, Rob Biddulph, is hosting a draw-along every Tuesday and Thursday at 10am.  You need to ask your parent/carer to access one of his Social Media platforms (have a look at our Twitter for a link) at that time, and follow along with his drawings.  It is good fun.  Good job we put coloured pencils in your take-home pack, isn't it?
 
Happy drawing.

Hello Willows!
 
I hope you are all coping with being at home.  Have you been working through your packs of work?  There is an awful lot of work in there for you to do.  Remember, you can also go online and use the learning platforms you have login details for - Mathletics, Active Learn, Accelerated Read, Times Table Rockstars etc.  Oh, and don't forget you can go on Hour of Code too!
 
If you fancy an interesting story, read to you by astronauts in space, have a look at this website... www.storytimefromspace.com  There are tonnes of stories to choose from - which one is your favourite?  I wonder why the books float around?
 
Stay safe and well.
