Oak Weekly Challenges

We hope you have great week and enjoy the sunshine after a miserable weekend. Below we have included some activities that we hope you have fun trying out. There is no pressure to complete, however if you do we would love to see your photos.

Literacy –    

This week your challenge is to take food orders for your family.  Use your writing and communication skills and also don’t forget your signs.

  1. Can your write down the food item they would like?
  2.  Can you ask them ‘What do you want to eat?’
  3.  Can you ask them ‘Would you like a drink?’

Numeracy – 

Can you identify all the coins up to the value of £2. Get a cupcake tin and ask an adult to write the coin value.  From a selection of coin in a bowl, can you read the price tag, or listen to the price and identify the correct coin.

Cooking –

Let’s make chocolate brownies, a video has been made so click here to view the video and find out how to make them.

Art –

On your daily walk can you keep an eye out for stones.  A variety of sizes will be ideal as you are going to paint and use them as decorations for your garden.  If you have acrylic paint and clear lacquer this will be perfect to keep your design looking good and make them weatherproof.  Below is an idea but get creative and design your stones in any way you like.

The Oak class has a great artist, Miss Miller has created this lovely picture to represent all the classes that make up our school. Have an attempt at making your own Willow tree drawing. We look forward to seeing them and sharing with them with everyone.

 

Topic Work –

On your daily walk can you see how many signs you can identify. You could take a picture with an adult’s phone.  Then at home you can make a poster of all the signs you seen in your local community.  Can you tell everyone in your family what the sign says / means?

 

Music –

Get your family singing and signing along to this song, click here.  Feel free to send us any videos of you having a family sing a long. Click here for the link to Singing Hands video ‘Best Day of My Life’.

Life Skills –

These week your focus is to load / empty the dishwasher. Wash / dry the dishes in the sink. Do you know where everything goes? Where does the cutlery go? What about the plates?

Class Pet – Butterflies

I have fantastic news to share with you all, our five caterpillars have now grown into five beautiful butterflies! It is almost time to release them and let them fly free.  Mrs Murray is going to be very sad as she has loved looking after them!  Click here to see what they have been eating to help get strong and prepare them for moving on.

Have a great week Oak team! Continue with all your hard work, everyone is doing so well and we miss you greatly! Stay safe
