…Well Pinettes this is how all good Fairytales start!
The story of Snow White was taken from a 19th century German Fairytale written by the Brothers Grimm. It was Walt Disney’s first full length movie and was released on the 4th of February 1938.
One of your tasks in your Lockdown Pack was to come up with words to decribe Snow White – did you think of any? What about Gentle, Charming, Cheerful and Kind – now what words would you use to describe the Queen?
We love music in the Pine Room, so what about a couple of Princess songs to listen to and dance to?
This week lets concentrate on the Number 2 and pairs of things – can you find pairs of matching things in your house? Also can you find things that you use together in twos – an example a toothbrush and toothpaste!
2021 British Science Week 5-14th of March so it is is actually ten days long and is a celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths.
In the Pine Class we are going to look at the Human Body and our senses.
Below are some activities for each of our senses.
Hearing using plastic eggs, good time to get these, there is a great sounds matching game and some other sensory games on the Play to Learn site.
Touch making up bowls of different things in them, for you to put your hands in – what do you like, what do you not? You could use dry rice, cooked pasta, cut up pieces of wool, sand or set table jelly. Or you could make a a poster like this from mandeeandbrandy.blogspot.com – not as messy as the first idea!
Smell there are lots of different smells in your house – what about making a chart on one side you have ‘likes’ on the other side ‘dislikes’. Now start smelling and decide what you like and what you don’t!!
Taste now this is one time to get adventurous and try and taste a few things you haven’t tasted before – well did you like them?
Sight try looking at things differently – through a magnifying glass, through bincoulars, through coloured cellophane or through the bottom of a glass – does this make things look different – BIGGER, smaller, different colour, or fuzzy.
One other important thing to remember Pinettes on Sunday we need to celebrate some special Ladies – so don’t forget Mother’s Day!!
Have a good week Pinettes
