Stars Pea Head and Car Ramp Activities

Mrs Logan has been busy making the Pea Head person from this week’s blog. She decorated a cup with a face, filled it with compost and planted seeds in it. It will be kept well watered in her greenhouse. Mrs Logan used cress seeds instead of peas. She will send you a photo once the cress ‘hair’ has grown.

Mrs Chisholm has built a car ramp with her children. They are having great fun racing cars and seeing how far the cars travel if you make the ramp steeper.

Why don’t you try making these. Send in some photo’s if you do.

Have Fun! Stay Safe! ❤😊

Daily exercise and stick collecting to paint and create this wonderful rainbow, which is proudly displayed in the window for all to see! Fantastic and thank you for sharing with us! We are all very proud of you, keep it up!


Stars Activities 3

Hello Stars Class. Hope you are all doing well. 

Here are some more activities to do should you wish. Adapt them to suit whatever you have available.

Five Senses Treasure Hunt                                                                    

Find something –






that is a plant

that smells

you can eat


Pea Head Person                                                                                     1. Cover yogurt pots, paper cups or plant pots with paper and draw a funny face on them.

2. Fill with compost and sow any seeds you have. Normally you sow peas however cress, grass, flower or vegetable seeds will grow to make a fine head of ‘hair’.

3. Remember to keep the seeds well watered as they grow and make sure they get plenty of sunlight. They would look good on the kitchen windowsill.

Balloon Tennis                                                                                          Blow up a balloon and use a bat to play tennis with a partner. Don’t worry if you don’t have a bat, just use your hand. Enjoy! This was great fun when we played it in class.

Story                                                                                                                                       We enjoyed ‘The Gruffalo in Scots’ in class but this is Elaine C. Smith reading ‘The Glasgow Gruffalo’.


If the link doesn’t work then go into YouTube and type in The Glasgow Gruffalo Elaine C. Smith. I hope this makes you laugh as much as ‘The Gruffalo in Scots’ did!

Remember, these activities are optional but we would love any comments or photographs of things you’ve done.                                                                                            I will be giving you a quick phone call this week for a catch up.

Have Fun. Stay Safe.

Get you and your family dancing, look out for Mrs Murray’s dance videos on our Willowbank YouTube channel. At present we have five dances that you can do, so that is a different one for everyday of the week.  More are being made so if you have a song request, leave it in the comment section of this blog and I will get a dance made up for you.

Each week I will give you words that you need to spell and write down, with the help from someone at home find out the action from the alphabet exercise sheet below and create your workout routine.  You need to complete ten of each exercise or if you want a challenge can you do the action for 30 seconds.

Keep choosing a different number until you have completed them all. Have fun and get your whole family doing it with you.

Get Creative

Good Morning Oak Team! I hope you are all well and below is the details of activity 1 for this week! Remember to leave comments on this post on how you are finding the tasks that are being set.

 Activity 1 

What do I need? – A bag, blank piece of paper, pencil and a creative mine

On your daily walk or in your garden can you have a look around and find anything interesting that could create a lovely picture.



Empty all your findings onto the ground and sort them into piles of the same items, like below;

Ask an adult to draw a circle at the top of the blank paper, like below;

1) Can you use your material to make a person?

2) Can you make a picture of everyone in your family?

3) How many differerent ways can you a picture of a person using what you have found?

Here are some examples below;



Caterpillar / Butterfly progress

We are on Day 9 of our tranformation cycle of caterpillar into butterfly. They are getting a lot bigger and growing lots of little hairs all over their body.






Comets-At Home

Hi, hope everyone is doing well! Here are a few fun activities you can try this week if you wish

  1. Big Bird Watch- Before we stopped we had been taking part in the  Great British  bird watch. Have a look out your window, in your garden or when you are out for a walk. How many birds can you see? What colour are the birds? Are they big or small?

You could even feed the birds to help spot them!

2. Jungle Book- Our theme this term was the jungle book, and we were all enjoying listening to all the songs! Can you have some fun singing and dancing along  to all the Jungle book songs. What was your favourite? I really like the ‘Bare Necessities’

3-Build a Tower- Using whatever you have around the house, built and super cool tower. You can use recycling, lego, dvd boxes etc. I would love to see photos of all your towers!

Stay safe and have a lovely week!

Welcome Back Stars Class

Hi everyone. Mrs Gardner here. The ladies and I are all missing you. Hope you are enjoying the sunshine as we definitely are.                                                                      I have been tidying the garage, doing some gardening and have been doing facetime quizzes with my family which have been great fun.

Mrs Westerman has been tidying out her huge shed. She had so much rubbish she had to hire a skip! She has been enjoying walks with her dog, Storm, and took this photo of some sheep she saw the other day.

Mrs Logan has been busy with her children, Adam and Amy. They have been doing treasure hunts, baking and enjoying walks. They made a wee family rock garden with their names on. Mrs Logan has also been keeping fit with Joe Wicks and online Zumba classes.

Mrs Chisholm has been doing lots of activities with her children Evie and Owen. They have enjoyed going to the park, made lovely ‘Thank You’ rainbows for their window and had a yummy barbeque the other day.

Every Monday I will post an activity for you to do with your family, if you wish. It is not compulsory but might be fun to do. The theme this term is, ‘The Great Outdoors’ so I thought it would be nice to make ‘Natures Crowns’ or ‘Natures Wristbands’.

You can use twigs, flowers, leaves or clippings from bushes. The choice is yours! We’d love to see any photo’s or maybe you could leave a comment on the blog. Mrs Chisholm’s children made wonderful rainbow pictures to thank key workers and the NHS. Maybe you could make a thank you poster for your postman or dustbin men.

Have Fun. Stay Safe.
