I hope you all had a great half term and managed to enjoy the beautiful weather. It has been wonderful to see lots of learning you've been doing at home. Thank you to those parents who have made a huge effort to upload photos on the Learning book.
Keep smiling and stay safe!
While you are at home with your children, I will be setting some exciting activities for you to do every week. Don't worry if you do not have the exact resources mentioned below, you can always improvise with things that you have at home. If I suggest a book, don't worry if you don't have a copy. Where possible I will add a link to an online version or a video reading.
Please do continue to use the Learning book App/Website to upload photographs (even if it's not the topic that I have set for that particular week). I will be able to use these photos to continue with my teacher assessments when the school reopens.
Week Beginning: 1/6/20
- Watch 'Frozen-In summer'. Discuss with your child what they think will happen to Olaf when it gets warm. Support your child to fill up ice cube trays or plastic containers and freeze. Once frozen, take them out and explore how quickly they melt in your hands, in the fridge and on the windowsill.
- Sort clothes into summer and winter clothes.
- Talk to an adult about how to stay safe in the sun.
- When you are playing outside, look at your shadow. Is it big as you or smaller? Is it always the same size? Does it always follow you or does it move in front of you? Find out as much as you can about your shadow and tell a family member about it.
- Can you thing of 5 words that start with the sound 's'? Draw a picture of each one and write the word underneath.
- Make your own ice-lolly using diluted juice, fruit and lollipop sticks.
- Draw a picture of somewhere that you would like to spend a holiday. Use your imagination...it can be anywhere, real or imaginary!
- With an adult, use the internet search engine to find images of summer flowers and plants. Talk about the different colours and shapes you can see.
- Enjoy exercising outside and notice how exercising affects my body.
- Role play being in an ice cream parlour.
- Design a postcard and post it to a friend or family member.
- Continue to practise writing your name. Remember to hold your pencil correctly!
