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.

National Digital Learning Week #NDLW19

The Sunflower boys have been very busy this week using a range of different digital technologies. We use our SMARTboard daily for morning group and also for lots of different maths activities. We use a number of different programme to support our maths learning “Counting songs” regularly and this week we used the “Number run”. The boys really enjoyed the sound effect of the Number run programme. We also used the Beebots and pressed the buttons to make the Beebot move from one place on the mat to another. We used to iPads to play games and got to experience the story headphones to listen to different sounds.
