You could also have fun with this activity using a handheld device. Use your finger to copy the letters of the alphabet it is lots of fun.

Numeracy- Colour

Go on a colour hunt around your house. How many colours can you find? Do you have Lego or bricks or other toys that are different colours? Can you sort them? Make a pile of red, a pile of blue etc.

Health and Wellbeing- Edible faces

Have a think of what foods you can make a face on. You could use icing and fruit or sweets to make a face on a biscuit. You could use cheese and vegetables to make a face on a wrap pizza.

Art- Potato printing

Get an adult to cut a potato in half. You can then dip this in paint to create a picture. You can also cut out different shapes in the potato and make different patterns.

Christmas Party

Yesterday we had a special visit from Santa. He came to the playground and gave each us a sack full of presents for all the friends in the Bluebells class.

We were all dressed smartly for our class Christmas party.  We danced and played games and had lots fun. We were confident individuals and danced with our peers and were able to freeze and become statues with the music stopped.  We were able to pass the parcel to our peers and pull off one layer when the music stopped until last layer when the winner opened a book.

50 things outdoors – Birdfeeders

Winter is here so we decided to made a birdfeeder to put in the garden to feed the birds. We used cheerios and threaded them onto a long pipe cleaner. Some people were able to independently try this confidently, Some were holding the pipe cleaner and staff were supporting them to pull them along the pipe cleaner once on it.

Christmas cards

Today we made Christmas cards. We painted our feet and added antlers to make them look like a reindeer we then added baubles using out fingers.

We also worked on size ordering, ordering different strips of green paper to make a Christmas tree. We used our fingers to add lights and then added glitter to look like tinsel. We had great fun with lots of smiles. We were all confident individuals putting our fingers in the paint and placing them on the paper.

Dinosaur stomping

This week we have been learning all about the letter “d”. We love playing pretend with the dinosaurs in class so we found them and decided to make some dinosaur prints. We dipped the dinosaur in the paint getting their feet covered in paint and then made footprints on a piece of paper. All children were able to hold the dinosaur and were confident individuals making their own footprints on their paper.

The boys also used purple triangles to create dinosaurs. The boys are confident individuals in copying the action and saying the sounds. They are then successful learners by following instructions and creating their own animals.

St Andrew’s Day

 

 

Monday was St Andrew’s Day. The boys listened to a story and looked at pictures on the board. We then made a Scotland flag using tissue paper and cotton wool. We also used cars to create a lovely tartan picture. They were confident individuals dipping the wheels in the paint and rolling them across the paper to create their very own tartan design. We also used crayons to follow the lines on on our pencil control worksheets. We listened to some Scottish music which we were not keen on.
