Stars Activities 7

Hi everyone. Hope you are all enjoying the good weather.  🌞🕶

Tuesday 2nd June should have been our Sports Day. Willowbank staff have been very busy filming and taking photographs of races you could try. The Stars class ladies had a ‘dressing up’ race. Hope you enjoy it!

This week we thought we could have our own wee sports day at home with a few races and a picnic. It would be nice to make some butterfly cakes for your picnic but if you can’t get the ingredients why not make some sandwiches instead. You could cut them into fancy shapes.

BUTTERFLY CAKE RECIPE     

100g butter, softened

100g caster sugar

2 large eggs

100g self raising flour

1 level teaspoon

baking powder

ICING – 175g butter, softened

350g sifted icing sugar, plus extra for dusting

INSTRUCTIONS –

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees C/ Fan 180 degrees C/ Gas 6. Place fairy cake cases into a 12 hole bun tin so that the cakes keep a good even shape as they bake.
  • Measure all the cake ingredients into a large bowl and beat well for 2-3 minutes until the mixture is well blended and smooth. Fill each paper case with the mixture.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cakes are well risen and golden brown. Lift the paper cases out of the bun tin and cool the cakes on a wire rack.
  • To make the icing, beat the butter and icing sugar together until well blended. Cut a slice from the top of each cake and cut this slice in half. Spoon a heaped teaspoon of butter cream into the centre of each cake and place the half slices of cake on top to resemble butterfly wings. Dust the cakes with icing sugar to finish.

**  Don’t worry if you can’t find any icing sugar in the shops to make buttercream icing. A spoonful of jam or lemon curd in the centre will work just as well.

RACES

If you don’t see any races/activities you want to do on the Willowbank video then maybe you could consider welly throwing (who throws their welly nearest to the target – the target could be a teatowel), water race (fill a basin with water, scoop up a cup of water at a time and run with it over to an empty bowl. Who can collect the most amount of water in 1 minute), ball/balloon catch (how many times can you catch a balloon or ball in 1 minute) or fill the bucket (transfer small objects from one bucket to another. First finished is the winner.) I’m sure someone from your family could help you with your races.

PICNIC

Sit on a rug in the garden, if you can, and enjoy your butterfly cakes and some juice with your family or you could sit at a picnic table. Maybe use a colourful tablecloth. Listen for the birds. Mrs Gardner has blackbirds nesting in her garden and they are very chirpy!

Weekly Activities- 1st June

Good Morning Daisies!

I hope everyone is getting to enjoy the lovely weather we are having again. Below are some activity ideas for the week. You can complete as many or as few as you would like.

 

  1. Use chalk or a wet paint brush to make marks on the ground or pavement. Can you make any letters or write your name?                                                               
  2. Count how many steps it takes you to move from one room in your house to another. Does the number change if you take big steps & little steps?                                                                                                                                               
  3. Can you help your family to make the dinner? Look for different ingredients and stir these in a bowl with support.                     
  4. Create a picture of your family. You could use art resources or different materials you can find in your house or garden.
  5. Stay safe in the sun- help to get ready to spend time in the sun by putting on a hat and sunglasses, and helping an adult to apply your sun-cream.                                                                                                     

 

 

Have fun and don’t forget to send some photos of you completing activities to kris.campbell@eastayrshire.org.uk 🙂

Stars Activities 5

Hope you are all well. The weather has not been so good but hopefully the sunshine will be back soon and we can get outside again. 🌞

The bin men visit our homes every week to collect recycling and every three weeks to collect our green bins. Just now many Council workers are doing different jobs and some are helping the bin men. Thank you to all!  👏

Help your family organize your rubbish ready for the bin men. Recycle paper, glass and plastics in your recycling trolley and put black bags of non recyclable rubbish in the green bin. If you can, help pull out the bins onto the pavement for collection. Always remember to wash your hands afterwards.

The ladies and Mr Gardner have been busy sorting out the rubbish and recycling at home.

Floating/Sinking

Fill a basin or bowl with water then collect different small items from around the house and garden. Check if they float or sink. Try things such as a stone, flower, shell, plastic cup, pine cone, twig, coins, small ball, small plastic toy, paper or keys. Choose whatever you have available but ask first! Can you guess beforehand if it will float or sink?

Dice Game

Play a game of snakes and ladders with your family. Do good holding, shaking, listening and rolling then help to count the squares. Remember to wait your turn! Watch out for the snakes!

If you choose to do any of these activities then maybe you could send a photo or write a comment. We’d love to hear from you.

Have fun! Stay safe! ❤😊
