Are you ready for a challenge Rosehill children? Each week, 5 new weekly challenges will be set by the teachers in school, as well as Mr Holmes and Mr Wagstaff. You have a week to complete the challenge. If you would like to, please share your response by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your pictures, videos etc and we will post it to this page.
We hope as many of you can take part as possible. We encourage you to take part in as many of the challenges as you like, you don't just have to do the ones set by your class teacher.
I'm so impressed with all of your nature spotting so far! Thank you to everyone who has joined in: I have loved looking at all of your photos.
The topic for this week's 'Can you spot it?' challenge is trees.
On your 'daily exercise' walks this week, look closely at the trees to see if you can identify and name them. Below, is a document from Woodland Trust that helps you to identify trees by the shape of their leaves. Can you find all 13 trees that are on this list? Each tree that you identify from this list, is worth 1 point each (with a total of 13 points). Can you find and identify any trees that aren't on this list? Each tree that you identify, that isn't on this list, is worth 2 points each.
I should warn you that Mr Pritchard is going to attempt this challenge and will be competing against you to get the most points
Please remember to adhere to social distancing rules while you are out and about. Have fun, stay safe and good luck!
The topic for this week's 'can you spot it challenge?' is bugs.
On your 'daily exercise' walks this week, keep an eye out for insects. If you're really quiet and sneaky, you might be able to take a photograph before they move away.
Here's what we found throughout the week. How many different types of insect can you find? We found the beautiful black and red moth on our doorstep!! It obviously knew the next challenge and was waiting for us to take its photograph 😊
As always, a few rules: please adhere to social distancing rules while you are out and about. Don't try to capture the insects, leave them in their home. It's ok to look under logs and stones but make sure that everything goes back where you found it. Have fun, stay safe and good luck!
The topic for this week's 'can you spot it challenge?' is flowers.
On ONE of our 'daily exercise' walks around Rawmarsh, we managed to find 42 different types of flowers and photograph the majority of them. Your task is simple ... find and photograph more flowers than us and upload them to the blog (email@example.com) or tag us in your photos on twitter (@RosehillJuniors @RRJMrsPritchard)
We used a free app called 'Candide' to find the name of the ones we didn't know. It's awesome! You photograph the flower in the app and it tells you loads of information about it. Your parents could download it and log in using Facebook or Email if you want to. You don't have to name the flowers though, that was just an added bonus for us to satisfy the curiosity of Elora, our 5 year old.
A few rules: please adhere to social distancing rules while you are out and about, don't pick the flowers (unless they are weeds growing in the street, then 1 year old Sienna seems to think that's ok) and please don't go into people's gardens. Garden flowers do count, as long as you stay on the pavement and use the zoom on your camera. Also, have fun, stay safe and good luck. I bet you can't find more flowers than us in just one walk!
