Pine Lockdown Week 6 – The World made a Rainbow 🌈

Well Hello Pinettes! How are you all?

Well again –  what about this weather???

This is LGBT+ Awareness Month and if you have driven or walked past the  school you will have seen the LGBT+ Flag proudly displayed.

So this week’s blog is all about our differences and our similiarites

Literacy, Nature, Art and Craft. 

📚🦩🐟🐧🎨

Below is a suggestion for a couple of books, some we have read before,  but they all have a silimar theme that we are all different in some ways, the same in others but we are all unique.

The Flamingo that didn’t want to be Pink🦩

What about making yourself a Flamingo – the only rule is  it cannot just be PINK!! Maryland Zoo has a Caribbean Flamingo called ‘Bumper’ you can learn all about him, find out what he eats and how tall he is, and even watch him and his friends on the live web cam. Maryland Zoo 

Next the Rainbow Fish, in this link it is read by Ernest Borgnine (he has been in a lot of Movies!) The Rainbow Fish

What about making a colourful sparkly fish, I will send you all some instructions. What about going onto the internet and seeing if you can find any real rainbow fish.

Last year in class we read Tango makes 3 we really enjoyed this story, so thought you would like to hear it again. This is a lovely story all about two boy penguins called Roy and Silo, then baby Tango comes along. You can look up loads of information on penguins.

All about Penguins 🐧

One last story The World made a Rainbow 🌈  

In the first Lockdown we all made Rainbows for our windows, think about making another one like the little girl in this story. What about a sensory Rainbow with different materials for each colour? ArtBar has some really great ideas!

Singing and Signing

Lets practice signing all the different colours

Colours of the Rainbow 🌈 

Rainbow Colour Song 🌈

Numeracy 🔢

What about a colour hunt?

  • How many Red things can you find in the kitchen?
  • How many Yellow things can you find in the fridge?
  • How many Pink things can you find in the bathroom?
  • How many Green things can you find in the garden?
  • How many Purple things can you find in the living room?
  • How many Orange things can you find on your walk?
  • How many Blue things can you find in your cupboard?

Which colour did you find the least of and which the most?

Now don’t forget it is Valentines Day on Sunday, so what about making a card for someone special – cards are always nicer when they are hand made.

Colour Matching – griping the different objects and posting them through the correct slot.

We enjoyed doing some art work and using bubble wrap to help us create some different effects.

The weather was so nice on Tuesday afternoon we got outside in the sunshine and had great fun having a sing song!!

In keeping with our Rainbow theme this week is all about GREEN, and we have started reading a new story called ‘I do not eat the colour green’.

Music and Move with some confident individuals.

Domino Fun

ICE Pack  – How I feel? We are continuing reading the story ‘The Color Monster’ – we all decided what colour and what materials to use to bring our Monsters to life!!!

We have also been looking at the changing seasons and made some beautiful leaves for our windows.

      

We had some fun with bread dough, it is great exercise for our hands – stretching and griping and a fun sensory experience too!

          

Have a great weekend

If you don’t have lolly stick or moulds you can make them up in small plastic cups and add a plastic straw OR put your mixture into ice cube trays.

What has Willow Bear been up to? 🐻

Well Hello Pine Class – hope you are all enjoying the sunshine!

Well Heather has been on Night Shift and I haven’t  been too happy about that, because I want to go outside and enjoy the sunshine and she wants to sleep! So I  keep trying to wake her up, firstly by poking her, this seems to make her quite annoyed!!  Then I did a bit of really loud singing – she didn’t seem to enjoy this either??  So she has shut me in the other room,  and told me to practice my keyboard skills, as I have a duet to prepare for with a certain young lady in the Pine Class.

Take Care Pine Class xx

Have fun in the Sunshine Pine Class
