Home learning and week 3 of 30 Days Wild

Hi everyone.

So this is week 3 of the 30 Days Wild challenge. I hope you have been getting involved. Here is the video.



This week we thought you could have fun playing a game of balloon tennis with the family. Blow up a balloon and you can hit to each other with your hand, use a racquet or make your own with a paper plate.


Do you have jigsaws at home?  Try and see if you can complete one.  All the ladies had fun completing them at home.


We know that we all love cooking, so why not help to bake or make a tasty treat. The Sunflower ladies are very talented and made different cakes.


And finally we thought you could get a little messy and have fun. Use shaving foam to do some mark making. We had lots of fun writing letters and even a little message for you all. 🙂




Ready Steady Cook!

This week, the Bluebells staff thought you could take part in some cooking challenges as a family. You can make all of these below or just choose 1. Even if you don’t want to eat it, you could help make it for someone in your household 🙂

We have all chosen a snack/dinner and taken a picture of it this week to show you some ideas. For the simple recipes, scroll down. Enjoy! 🍽


*Tortilla Pizza 🍕

Tortilla wrap
Cheddar cheese

Grate cheese using a grater.
Pour passata on the middle of your tortilla wrap.
Spread the passata with the back of a spoon (all the way to the edges).
Sprinkle grated cheese on top.
Add any additional toppings of your own choice.
Put in a preheated oven at 180° for 8 mins.
Cut into slices and enjoy 🙂


*Chicken Fajitas 🌮

Diced chicken breasts
Mixed peppers
Fajita seasoning
Tortilla wraps
Garlic salt (optional)

An adult will need to help you

Add some oil/vegetable oil spray to a wok.                                                                        Turn on the cooker to a high heat and add the chicken to the pan.
Fry the chicken, add the fajita seasoning and garlic salt.
Add some mixed peppers and a finely chopped onion and allow to soften.
Add some more fajita seasoning for flavour and reduce the heat.
Heat up the tortillas in the oven.
Spoon the fajita mix onto a wrap. Add some sauce if you would like.
Follow steps 1, 2 and 3 to wrap your tortilla.

Enjoy! 😊


* Toast and cheese 🧀

Get some bread and cheese and with adult help cut the cheese in to slices to put on top of your bread.

With adult help put the grill on and wait a few minutes for it to get warm.

When it’s warm enough put the bread with the cheese on it and you can look from a safe distance and watch for the cheese to bubble that’s when it’s ready 🙂

Safely take it from the grill and wait a few minutes for it to cool down. Then enjoy 😊


* Tattie Soup 🥣


2 vegetable stock cubes
Split lentils


Wash and peel carrots, chop them into small pieces.
Was and peel potatoes and chop them into medium sized chunks.
Wash and chop leek into small pieces.
Peel onion and chop into small pieces.
Add all the veg to a pan and dissolve the stock cubes in boiling water then ad liquid to pan.
Add half a cup of split lentils.
Make sure the veg is covered with water add salt to season.
Bring to boil then simmer.
Cook until potato chunks are soft.

Family Fun!

This week’s challenge involves lots of fun and interaction with our families 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

Our focus is on social skills so I thought it would be fun to play lots of games.

In class, our favourites are Duck Duck Goose or What’s the time Mr Wolf? However there are lots of games you can play including Tig and Hide and Seek.

These can take place in your house or in the garden and involve no resources.

Alternatively you can have some competitive challenges like lego tower building (set a timer and see who can build the tallest tower in that time), a game of limbo or piggy in the middle.

I’d love to see some photographs of you enjoying some family fun and games so feel free to send them for our blog 📸

Have fun! 😃

Weekly home learning activities

Hi everyone, Hope you are well.

I hope you enjoyed the activities last week and helped out at home doing some different jobs.  This week we have lots more fun activities for you to try.

Activity 1 – Music

We love exploring different musical instruments in class. Do you have any instruments at home? Explore the different noises they make. Don’t worry if you don’t the ladies and I have been very busy making our own instruments. Watch the video to find what materials around the house we used to make our own musical instrument.




Activity 2 – Numeracy

Numbers are everywhere in our environment in our house and outside. Create you own number scanner by cutting a whole in a bit of paper or card. You can then explore your house or the outdoors on your daily walk having a number hunt. How many different numbers can you see?


Activity 3 – Art

This week I made my own chalk paint to create pictures on my patio. The great thing is you can wash it away with water and create more or wait for the rain to wash it away. Just add a small amount of water to some tablespoons of cornflour then add some food colouring and mix. Then use a paintbrush to draw your pictures outside. The possibilities are endless.


Activity 4 – Health and wellbeing

The ladies and I had lots of fun creating a bowling game in our garden. Watch the video. 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUETPPnWYqo&feature=youtu.be

You can create your own it can be indoors or outdoors. You can make it with anything bottles, cans etc and then use a ball or an orange to see how many you can knock down. Play as a family and see who can knock the most down.


Activity 5 – Health and wellbeing

This week we decided to work on spreading skills. You can make a meal all your family will enjoy – a pizza 🙂 Mrs Russell had fun making pizzas with wrap for her lunch. Mrs Adair didn’t quite have the ingredients so she improved and made a dessert option. She spread chocolate spread on a pancake and the used other ingredients to create a face – she is very creative.

Theme activities

Good morning Sunflowers,

I hope you had a lovely weekend. This week the Sunflowers team thought we post some activities related to our new theme “A Bug’s Life”.

Here a some activities you could do this week.

The Sunflowers love cookery so you could make some lovely ladybird biscuits to share with your family. Colour some icing red and cover a digestive biscuit then get some black icing for the spots. Mrs Adair and myself even used some edible eyes.

You could also use your fine motor skills to create some caterpillar like bird feeders. Mrs Russell, Miss Burns and myself  found some loop cereal in our cupboard and then threaded them through some string and hung them in our garden for the bird. Before we tied them together they looked like caterpillars. Mrs Miller had some help making her bird feeder from her little girl.


We also looked at shapes. Mrs Russell created a shape picture for you to look at and find shapes and I made shapes with different objects in my garden. Can you spot some of the teddies for some of the songs we sing in class?



Remember to have fun. These are optional activities but if you do complete some please add a comment so we know what you have been up to.


Food Glorious Foooooood

For our Health & Wellbeing section this week, the boys in Transition did a quiz to see what foods were healthy and what foods weren’t. Everyone took turns to come up to the board and select a food and put it to the correct side, healthy or unhealthy. The boys were all Effective Contributors and even chose their favourite foods to eat and put this on a worksheet. Crisps seem to be a majority favourite.
