Numeracy, we used the story ‘Spinderella‘ this week, lots of counting and clapping!! We also had spiders frozen in ice – not real spiders!!!! We worked on our tolerance of having the cold ice touch our skin, counted the spiders, and  identified the different colours.

Which colour is your favourite?

This is the Hairy Godmother.

MOVE  – In our Standing Frames watching some counting songs.

Now a note from your ECO-CAPTAIN – reduce, reuse and recycle – well I think these responsible citizens have done all that and more!! Using feed bottles to ‘Feed the Birds’. We all worked as a team on a sustainable goal SDG 17 – hope the birds like them.

The birds need water too….

Stars Home Learning Challenge W/C 22.02.21

Hi everyone. Hope all is well with you and your families. Find below some activities to do should you wish. Some of them are LGBTQ related. 🌈

Read the story ‘I am Jazz’ if you choose to. It is the story of a boy who would rather be a girl and do what are thought of as girls things.

I am Jazz

We are all very different. Draw or list some of the things that you like. Compare them with the likes of another member of your family. Are they the same…….or different?

You might have a favourite animal, school subject, TV programme, colour, sport, food, game or type of weather. These are just a few ideas.

 Play the game Shape Monsters.

Shape Monsters

Try and find things around your house with the shape of a….

Circle

       Square

Rectangle

Triangle

How many can you find of each shape?

Paint can feel cold and slippery on your hands but is fun to touch with your hands to create pictures. Paint the colours of the rainbow on your hands to make LGBTQ rainbow  handprints. Make a handprint of everyone in your family if you can.

     

Friday is Purple Friday. Why not make a purple octopus picture or ice some biscuits with purple icing.

Make your own musical shaker using an empty plastic bottle, coleslaw tub or two yogurt pots stuck together. Fill your shaker with lentils, dried peas, broth mix, pasta, rice or small stones then shake. Do they sound like the maracas at school?

Here is a music game to play.

Monster Music

I hope you enjoy trying some of these activities.

Have Fun! Stay Safe! 😎
