Power Off, Learning Outdoors

Good Morning 🙂

This week we would have been taking part in POLO day and completing lots of outdoor learning activities.

Below are some activities you can try at home, in your garden or when going out for a walk.

 

  1. Walk barefoot on grass. How does it feel?
  2. Have an outdoor picnic with your family.
  3. Blow some bubbles and walk through some bubbles
  4. Make colourful drawings on the ground using chalk
  5. Collect some natural material such as flowers, sticks etc. Press them into some playdough or clay, then remove them, to create a natural picture
  6. Create a stick raft and see how far it can travel. Collect lots of sticks and tie them together with the help of an adult. Place your raft in water and give it a little push. Does it float?

Have fun 🙂

Sungazers 8th June 2020

Good Morning Sungazers! Hope that you are all doing well?

This week we are going to the thinking about Sun Safety – what do we need to do/wear in the sunshine to keep us all safe!

Stay Safe in the Sun - WELCOA

Here are 3 activities to try at home –

  • Read through these posters – can you recognise all of these things to keep us safe in the sun?

  • Suncream Song – have fun learning this song about applying sun cream. It is to the tune ‘1,2,3,4,5, Once I Caught A Fish Alive’.

  • Lastly, here is a cut and stick activity – what would you put in your beach bag?

Have a wonderful week and remember to please email us any photos of you completing your work – we would love to see you!  Sun Safety | Gillibrand Primary School

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 🙂

 

Sungazers – 1/6/20

It’s June! Hope everyone has been enjoying this wonderful sunshine and is keeping safe!

This weeks task is a cookery one. At the weekend, Mrs Skinner and Mrs  Coulter were busy making ladybird biscuits with their families and thought you would like to join in too – it was great fun!

We have used – digestive biscuits, red icing, icing pens to decorate and any other icing decorations we could find in our cupboards.  Why don’t you have a go too – they were really tasty!

 

We also have a lovely story about a ladybird. It is called ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ and you can find it on Youtube.

Have a great week!

More home learning and Diggidabble week

Hi everybody,

I hope you liked your little rabbit and enjoyed using the stickers. This week the ladies have been extra busy thinking of fun activities for you to do with your family.

Activity 1 – literacy

Put a picture on a plate the cover it with salt. You can then use your finger or paintbrush to write out some letters, draw a picture of just to reveal the picture underneath. Have fun. You may want to put your plate on a tray to minimise spillages.

Activity 2 – expressive arts

Shadow art – we put cling film over a toilet roll or kitchen roll tube and stuck a sticker or made a design to stick on the end. We then used a torch to shine light through the tube and create a shadow image on the wall of the sticker or design.

Activity 3 – science

Tornado in a jar – We made a tornado in a jar. Watch the video to find out what you need and how to do it.

Activity 4 – numeracy

Colour hunt – all the ladies went hunting around their house for a specific colour. Check out the video to see some of the pictures.

It would also have been Diggidabble week in school this week so here a few activities related to digital learning you can do at home.

Use a phone to take a selfie of yourself or you and your family.

Use your tablet or iPad. What apps do you like to use? Do you have a favourite game to play? Let us know in the comments below.

Make a facetime call or skype call with a family member to stay in touch.

 

 

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.

Here are some ideas 🙂

  • Make gloop by mixing 2 cups of cornflour with 1 cup of water. You can add a few drops of food colouring or some glitter too. Enjoy exploring how it feels, or practise writing letters and numbers.

  • Squirt two different colours of paint into a zip lock bag. Seal the bag and use your fingers to mix the colours together. What colour did you make?
