Good morning Pine Class!
How are you all?
Have you been outside in your gardens listening to the birds? Jardine has and she managed to photograph a Blue Tit that has taken up residence in the bird box in her garden – amazing!!
What about feeding the Birds? Aitken has been doing that and made some lovely feeders – Well done Aitken give yourself a Clap!!
Below is a link of some lovely bird feeders – if you would like to make one and then watch some happy birds in your garden.
Boyle has been reading her cookery books in the sunshine, looking for some inspiration – she would love to know what you have all been reading?
Birdie Meatballs anyone?
I have made some Rainbow Birds from scraps of fabric I had left – what is your favourite colour?
Has anyone watched Mary Poppins? Did you have a favourite song?
And did any of you enjoy the silly parrot and the Birdie Song?
Our topic this Term was going to be Open Season – but due to the current situation we have had a wee rethink and decided to have some small topics that run over a week or two… or five!!!
Remember just do what you want to do and if you want to revisit any of the topics or ideas please do so – and post some comments and sent in some photos – we would love to hear from you all and see your lovely smiley faces!!!
Out in the Garden
During Morning Group, we look out the window or door and check the weather, we then look at the BBC Weather to see if they got it right? We like to sing and sign ‘What’s the Weather like Today’ – sing along!!
Next is a link to Mr Tumble singing and signing some songs about the weather.
Also, if you look up Singing Hands you can see them signing individual signs for different weather.
So what is the Weather like today?
If you are out in the garden or on a walk look and see if any rainbows appear!
Or some Highland Cows!!!
Can’t wait to see a photo of the calf.
In class we have Sensory bottles for each different type of weather – these are really easy to make – plastic bottles, buttons, beads, water beads, Hama beads, elastic bands, food colouring, cotton wool, sequins are just a few things you can use. Below is a link to some ideas if you would like to make your own.
Art and Games
This morning I have been watching the news and a feature I really enjoyed was about the ‘Posties’ – our local Postmen and Postwomen have been extremely busy just now!! My Postman is actually my friend Andy, and I have known him for about 30years, so when I bake I always bake for him too!! Lots of children have been putting thank you pictures and messages on their doors, and some have been playing games with their Postie, such as Noughts and Crosses – where you put the grid on your door fill in a square the Postie has a shot and this goes on over a couple of days until someone wins!!! What do you think!! If you have a game, leave a note or make a picture send us a photo – and it will make your Postie SMILE!!!
Now the weather, sadly according to the BBC Weather is going to be a wee bit colder and rainy over the next couple of days, so what about making a pot of soup? You probably have a favourite but below is a link to some different soups which you may want to try?
When making your soup
- Talk about the colours of the vegetables and sign them too!
- Listen to the noises of the vegetables being peeled and chopped.
- Smell the vegetables.
- Taste some of the vegetables raw, if you can.
- Can you hear the soup bubbling as it is cooking?
- What does your cooked soup smell and taste like?
- Remember help with the cleaning up if you can!!!
Ok – I will give you some clues.
Did you get it??
The Wizard of Oz
Have a great week Pine Class
