Pine Lockdown Week 3 – The Smeds and The Smoos 👾

Well HELLO Pinettes!

How have you all been getting on?

  • Did you Feed the Birds?
  • Did you enjoy the Bird Themed Stories?

These are our lovely recycled bird art from last week.

Please pop on some comments on the Blog or send us in some photos of what you have been up to.

Well this blog is all about ‘The Smeds and The Smoos, they live on a different planet.  This is a great story we have got a copy in class now and I am sure it will become a Pine Class favourite. It is all about how we can all be very different, but this does not mean we cannot become great friends.

In the Pine Room we are great at Colour Sorting, below is a link to different activities BUT remember to count the different coloured objects as you go.

Different Colour Sorting Activities

Below is a link to some printable sheets to make you own rockets out of different shapes.

Science 🧪🧪


Let’s mix up soon different colours – you can do this with 3 cups of water and a little food colouring in each – Red, Yellow and Blue – then mix equal parts together – the results are a little MAGIC!!!

  • Red + Yellow =
  • Red + Blue =
  • Yellow + Blue =

Arts and Crafts 🎨

What about making a tinfoil printed moon, the link before will show you how. And she has lots of other great ideas on her site.

A Dab of Glue will do!

I have a space-obsessed kid in my house, so we love to do space crafts around here, and my son was very excited to do this moon craft! We made it extra fun and experimented with a different way to paint by making it foil-printed. This craft is great for preschool, kindergarten, first grade, or even older kids. It would also be a great art extension during a space theme in the classroom.

Or some UFO craft from the crafting chicks.

Cookery 🥛

Because we have talked so much about colour what about some colourful smoothies? These can be a whole load of lovely colours – made to a thinner or thicker consistency. Can you help:

  • Choose the fruit?
  • Wash the fruit?
  • Weight the ingredients?
  • Press the button on the blender?

Some ideas for you below.
