Drawing Challenge!

In class, the Bluebells have enjoyed doing step by step drawing challenges. We have created fruit baskets, houses, penguins and gingerbread men.

We thought since it is Digidabble week and we are focusing on using technologies that we could attempt a drawing session at home using YouTube.

The ladies in the Bluebells class tried it out this morning and these are our attempts below.

Can you guess who we drew?

Yes Mowgli from The Jungle Book!

Can you try it at home?

This video shows how to draw Mowgli (we paused and played throughout as it is fast!). The artist uses paints but we used felt tip pens.

All of the pupils love these sessions in class and find them very relaxing and calming. Some pupils like to watch an adult draw a line and they make a similar attempt on their own paper (so adults and/or siblings get involved). Whereas other pupils prefer the security of a light hand over hand approach.

Give it a try and we would love to see your attempts on the blog. Have fun! 😀

Bubble Snake Blower!

As part of our Jungle Book theme, this week I thought you could have fun with a home science experiment where you recreate Kaa from the film 🐍

All you need is a plastic bottle, a sock, water and fairy liquid, which I’m sure you all have in the house.

1. Cut the bottom off of your plastic bottle with some scissors ✂

2. Pull a sock over the bottom of the bottle and secure it with an elastic band or bobble 🧦

3. Mix water and fairy liquid to create a bubble mixture 💧

4. Dip your sock covered bottle into the bubble mixture.

5. Blow through the top of the bottle.

Have lots of fun making bubble snakes! How long a snake can you make? If you wish, make a few bubble snake blowers and have a race with your family.

Just a reminder that these activities are just ideas but if you wish to take part and send a photograph or a comment along then I’d love to see it.

PS. I will be back in touch with families this week for a quick phone call so I look forward to having a catch up with you all 🙂

The Great Outdoors – Jungle Book Theme!

The Bluebells class had begun their new theme before school stopped. We had watched clips from the Jungle Book and got to know some of the main characters.

Remind yourself of our favourite song from the film by clicking the link below…

Activity 1 🐛🐞🕷
Can you go on a bug hunt around the garden or your local area like Baloo and Mowgli did? What did you find?

Activity 2 🍌🥥🍉
This week, have a fruit tasting session. This could be one piece of fruit or a full on fruit kebab like Baloo enjoyed. Was the fruit tasty or yucky?

Activity 3 🐻
Finally can you pretend to be Baloo the bear and have a back scratch. Try and get all of your family to join in too.

Have fun and if you wish, send us some photographs or post a comment on how you are getting on!
