We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’

Book Scavenger Hunt

For this task you will need a lot of books! Count how many books you can find in your house that have the following items in them. Will you be able to find them all?

   A castle

A frog

  A witch

   A bus

    A teddy bear

    A dog

    A pirate

  A train

   A king

      An elephant

   A farm

     A bike

     A tiger

    A hug

Indoor Picnic

Plan a picnic to have indoors as it will probably be too cold to have outside. You could lay a rug on the floor. Make your favourite sandwiches , some fairy cakes or simply enjoy your favourite crisps, fruit and juice. Why not send some photographs of your picnic.

   

Build a Den

Use rugs, old sheets, cushions off the couch, dining room table and chairs or clothes horse to build a den. These are only suggestions. Read a book inside your den. It’s fun when using a torch to read.

I hope you enjoy trying some of these activities.

Have Fun! Stay Safe! 😎

Numeracy – Talk About Number 7 – Number Webs

You will need – see picture below – 

After listening to the story, count the dwarfs again and count/sign from 0-7. Write numbers 1-7 on the post its and place nearby.

Ask your child to collect and place the number 1 post it on the floor, then ask them ‘what comes next?’

Ask them to collect and place number 2 on the floor near number 1 and connect with a piece of wool/string, attach with a blob of Blu-Tack then repeat.

Ask ‘can you find the next number and place on the floor?’…. repeat and complete until you reach number 7.

This will create a giant number web on the floor. (see photo below)

Ask your child to count forwards by jumping from one number to the next. Practise jumping on one place to add on one.

You will need -See picture below –

Think about ‘The Seven Dwarfs’ from the story. Explore and imitate the different emotions and personalities of the Seven Dwarfs.

Encourage your child to use their hands to play catch with the balloon or use the paper plates as a bat to play a game of balloon tennis and have some fun.

22nd Feb Art Ideas :)

Good morning! I hope you are all well and keeping safe.

The sun is shining and there are snowdrops beginning to bloom in the parks. Therefore, our art focus this week, will be about flowers!

Make a Wish Dandelions!

  • Draw a simple dandelion shape and use finger paints to add the fluffy seeds. Alternatively you could use felt tips or scrunched paper.
  • Have you ever blown on a dandelion and made a wish?
  • If you visit the local park you might be able to spot some dandelions growing amongst the grass.

Cotton Bud Flowers!

    

  • Perhaps you could use some cotton buds to create ‘petals’.
  • What else could you use? Pasta? Bottle tops? Coins?
  • What is your favourite flower?

Have a look at the spring flowers video.

Stay safe!

Stars Home Learning Challenge W/C 22.02.21

Hi everyone. Hope all is well with you and your families. Find below some activities to do should you wish. Some of them are LGBTQ related. 🌈

Read the story ‘I am Jazz’ if you choose to. It is the story of a boy who would rather be a girl and do what are thought of as girls things.

I am Jazz

We are all very different. Draw or list some of the things that you like. Compare them with the likes of another member of your family. Are they the same…….or different?

You might have a favourite animal, school subject, TV programme, colour, sport, food, game or type of weather. These are just a few ideas.

 Play the game Shape Monsters.

Shape Monsters

Try and find things around your house with the shape of a….

Circle

       Square

Rectangle

Triangle

How many can you find of each shape?

Paint can feel cold and slippery on your hands but is fun to touch with your hands to create pictures. Paint the colours of the rainbow on your hands to make LGBTQ rainbow  handprints. Make a handprint of everyone in your family if you can.

     

Friday is Purple Friday. Why not make a purple octopus picture or ice some biscuits with purple icing.

Make your own musical shaker using an empty plastic bottle, coleslaw tub or two yogurt pots stuck together. Fill your shaker with lentils, dried peas, broth mix, pasta, rice or small stones then shake. Do they sound like the maracas at school?

Here is a music game to play.

Monster Music

I hope you enjoy trying some of these activities.

Have Fun! Stay Safe! 😎

Weekly Home Learning Tasks

Hello, everyone!

Literacy

As February is LGBT+ History Month, I thought we could celebrate by listening to a story called ‘Zog and the Flying Doctors’ by Julia Donaldson.  The story teaches us the importance of being true to who we are inside, even if you are a princess!  Here is a link a reading of the story book and here is a link to an animated version of the story.

Can you remember what the doctor used to make his magic medicine?

Your challenge is to make your own medicine using the toys or items around your house!  Can you find 5 items that could have a magical medicine ingredient?  Something with a tail, feathers, scales, hairs, horns, nails or even just items from your kitchen fridge or cupboard!

  • What colour do you think your medicine will be?
  • Do you think it will taste good or bad?

 

Numeracy ECO challenge

Design and build Princess Pea’s castle using 2D shapes!

Try to collect as many empty bottles, lids, (flattened) boxes as you can this week and see if you can arrange them into the shape of a castle.  A typical castle made out of 2D shapes is shown below.

Please feel free to email photos of your finished castle to willowbank.school@eastayrshire.org.uk 😊

 

Health & Well being

As February is LGBT+ Awareness Month, you might see a lot of rainbow flags flying proudly! Do you recognise this one?

We would like you to listen to this story by Anna Llenas.  The story highlights how different colours can represent our different moods.  Have a think about where the different mood monsters would feature in Princess Pea’s story?

Which colour or mood monster represents the princess at the beginning of the story when she is flying through the air doing the job she loves?

                                                                

Which colour or mood monster represents the princess when she is told that she is not allowed to be a doctor anymore?

                                                                    

For bonus sensory activities and games related to the Colour Monsters, visit https://www.twinkl.co.uk/go/sign-in and use the passcode:  LW7685

It’s Fairtrade Fortnight! 

Here is a Fairtrade Activity Sheet for you to complete if you wish!

Please remember to do as little or as much as you wish 🙂  Take care and stay safe.

Be the best you can be!
