We love making painted handprints in the Pine Room so this is a lovely idea and you could turn it into a beautiful gift.

HANDPRINT RAINBOW PAINTING is a fun sensory art experience for kids. Get hands-on with paints and explore colour mixing and blending!

Boyle found these beautiful earrings on the Silver Fox Jewellery

And thought they could inspire some of you to make some jewellery – using things, such as pieces of wool, beads and threads to make to different jewellery. Below are a couple of websites with instructions to help you create something special.

Willow the Bear 🐻

Well Pine Class, myself and Heather are back on good term because the ASDA  shopping arrived and guess what was in it…….CUSTARD CREAMS!!!!    We did have a disaster as the washing machine broke and there was water all over the floor, Heather was trying to stop the water and put down towels – she seemed to be quite cross, but I thought it was really funny!!! On Friday I got a SURPRISE, Heather has bought me a kitten to keep me company when she is at work, she is called Ada, I am so HAPPY!!! We can  watch the delivery men delivering the online shopping to the neighbours, and watch reality TV together and travel to ASDA in Heather’s back pack – oh seemingly that’s not allowed!!!! Well Pine Class this is my last blog post until after the holidays, by then I will have lots to report!!

Love and Bear Hugs

Willow xxxx

P.S. Remember if you make Blueberry Muffins or have any spare Custard Creams please post them to me!!

Well as Willow said this is the last blog and we will see you all after the summer at school – apart from one special Lady that is going to retire after 24years of working at Witch Hill and Willowbank!!!

JARDINE we are all very sad you are retiring and we won’t get to see you everyday at work. We are going to miss you so much – but hope you will come and visit as often!!

Love

In the Pink..

Good Morning Pine Class – how are you all today?? 🌲

This week we are going to be continuing with our Rainbow Theme🌈

And the colour

🐷💗🏩🎀🩰

PINK!!!

Below are some activities for you to do if you would like – remember to send us some photos or put in some comments.

Signing and Singing🎶

First a little music with Fairy Sarah

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RXlLgEimO8

Were you all singing and signing – Wilson was!!!

Give a Socially Distancing Hug!!💕

Mia, a friend’s daughter, did a wonderful thing for her Granny last week. She hasn’t been able to see her to give her a hug so she decided that drawing round herself on a large piece of cardboard and colouring in it was the next best thing! I saw the photo her Granny looked very happy!!

So perhaps some of you would like to do this – draw around your body or your hand,  and then colourfully decorate – make someone smile!

Thanks Mia!!

Art🎨

Chalk painting was an activity I tried out last Friday with my neighbours’ children – Amy and Adam – they are keeping me entertained during the Lockdown with their chatter and singing while they are out in their garden.

I mixed up the Chalk Paint ready for us to use, we has separate paint brushes and maintained Social Distancing while we did this.

2 Tablespoons of Cornflour, 4 Tablespoons of Water and Food Colouring – I made 4 different colours Pink, Blue, Green and Yellow.

You brush or splash the paint onto the pavement and then it dries and looks like chalk – and the rain will wash it away – hopefully it won’t rain for a wee while!!

   

So if this is an activity you try please send us some photos!!

Cookery🥥

This week recipe is Coconut Ice – If you like something sweet and are able to eat coconut, I have managed to get all the ingredients at the supermarket which was a bonus!! I am going to make this at the end of the week.

Somewhere over the Rainbow….

Good morning Pine Class!

How are you all?

Have you been outside in your gardens listening to the birds? Jardine has and  she managed to photograph a Blue Tit that has taken up residence in the  bird box in her garden – amazing!!

!

What about feeding the Birds? Aitken has been doing that and made some lovely feeders – Well done Aitken give yourself a Clap!!

Below is a link of some lovely bird feeders – if you would like to make one and then watch some happy birds in your garden. 🐦

Boyle has been reading her cookery books in the sunshine, looking for some inspiration – she would love to know what you have all been reading?

Birdie Meatballs anyone?

I have made some Rainbow Birds from scraps of fabric I had left – what is your favourite colour?

Has anyone watched Mary Poppins? Did you have a favourite song?🌂

And did any of you enjoy the silly parrot and the Birdie Song?🐤

Our topic this Term was going to be Open Season – but due to the current situation we have had a wee rethink and decided to have some small topics that run over a week or two… or five!!!

Remember just do what you want to do and if you want to revisit any of the topics or ideas please do so – and post some comments and sent in some photos – we would love to hear from you all and see your lovely smiley faces!!!

Out in the Garden 🦋🐌🐛🐞

During Morning Group, we look out the window or door and check the weather, we then look at the BBC Weather to see if they got it right?  We like to sing and sign  ‘What’s the Weather like Today’  – sing along!! ⛅⛈🌤

See the source image

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUSbazn3STo

Next is a link to Mr Tumble singing and signing some songs about the weather.

Also, if you look up Singing Hands you can see them signing individual signs for different  weather.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0t9Tt_JlYd8

So what is the Weather like today?

If you are out in the garden or on a walk look and see if any rainbows appear! 🌈🌈

Or some Highland Cows!!!

🐂🐂🐂🐂

Can’t wait to see a photo of the calf.

In class we have Sensory bottles for each different type of weather – these are really easy to make – plastic bottles, buttons, beads, water beads, Hama beads, elastic bands, food colouring, cotton wool, sequins are just a few things you can use. Below is a link to some ideas if you would like to make your own.

Art and Games🌈

This morning I have been watching the news and a feature I really enjoyed was about the ‘Posties’ – our local Postmen and Postwomen have been extremely  busy just now!! My Postman is actually my friend Andy, and I have known him for about 30years, so when I bake I always bake for him too!! Lots of children have been putting thank you pictures and messages on their doors, and some have been playing games with their Postie, such as Noughts and Crosses – where you put the grid on your door fill in a square the Postie has a shot and this goes on over a couple of days until someone wins!!! What do you think!! If you have a game, leave a note or make a picture send us a photo – and it will make your Postie SMILE!!!

Cookery🍵

Now the weather, sadly according to the BBC Weather is going to be a wee bit colder and rainy over the next couple of days, so what about making a pot of soup?  You probably have a favourite but below is a link to some different soups which you may want to try?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/food/collections/easy_soup

When making your soup🍵

  • Talk about the colours of the vegetables and sign them too!

ttps://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=makaton+signs+of+colour&docid=608037682251761155&mid=2E87473E21141D49B7432E87473E21141D49B743&view=detail&FORM=VIRE

  • Listen to the noises of the vegetables being peeled and chopped.
  • Smell the vegetables.
  • Taste some of the vegetables raw, if you can.🥕
  • Can you hear the soup bubbling as it is cooking?
  • What does your cooked soup smell and taste like?
  • Remember help with the cleaning up if you can!!!

Film Choice

Ok – I will give you some clues.
