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

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.

Colour Sorting 🎈🎁

We love to colour sort in class – so a wee challenge for you all!!!

If you like you could find us 5 different red things ❤and 5 different yellow 💛things – can you take a photograph and send it in so we can see what you have collected – things from outside, from the kitchen or from your toy box.

For lots of our colour sorting activities – check out these on Pinterest – Wilson loves Pinterest!!!

Art 🎨

If you watched the film Wizard of Oz – did you like the song?

🎵 “If I only had a Heart”❤ with the Tin Man

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

For Art this week what about some Heart Art?

  • Fold a piece of paper in half and cut out a heart;
  • Open the heart up;
  • Put paint on one side of the heart and fold back in half – press it down;
  • Open up – beautiful Symmetry Painting!!!

Why don’t you put this in your window for everyone passing by to see – it will make them smile.

Another activity is to cut some hearts from some cardboard you are going to recycle, such as cereal boxes –  responsible citizens and cover them in tinfoil, you could punch a hole in the top and string them up and watch the sunlight reflect off them, even decorate them if you want with beads, stickers or feathers.

Cookery 🍓🍪

First a Red cookery idea, what about Strawberry Jelly?  Make up the Jelly according to the packet instructions, allow it to cool down a little and then add something else you like that is red – what about chopped up strawberries or red smarties?? Any other ideas?? What does your jelly smell like? Does it wobble? Was it tasty?

Next a Yellow Food, couple of ideas, custard a favourite in the Pine Room – do you like it hot or cold??? Or yellow vanilla ice-cream if you prefer, or if you parents would like a challenge what about helping them to make some scones!!! Jam and cream OR butter and jam????? Yummy!!

Numeracy🚗🚕

If you are out and about either in your car, or out for a walk or watching from your window why don’t you count the red and yellow cars going past, was there more red or yellow cars???

 VE Day

❤💙❤💙

This is Friday the 8th of May. Why not have a picnic inside or outside – remember this was just after the Second World War so food was limited and no Supermarkets – so keep it simple!!!

Jam sandwiches, a pork pie, a plain bun, jelly and custard!

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

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!!!
