Weekly Activities- 1st June

Good Morning Daisies!

I hope everyone is getting to enjoy the lovely weather we are having again. Below are some activity ideas for the week. You can complete as many or as few as you would like.

 

  1. Use chalk or a wet paint brush to make marks on the ground or pavement. Can you make any letters or write your name?                                                               
  2. Count how many steps it takes you to move from one room in your house to another. Does the number change if you take big steps & little steps?                                                                                                                                               
  3. Can you help your family to make the dinner? Look for different ingredients and stir these in a bowl with support.                     
  4. Create a picture of your family. You could use art resources or different materials you can find in your house or garden.
  5. Stay safe in the sun- help to get ready to spend time in the sun by putting on a hat and sunglasses, and helping an adult to apply your sun-cream.                                                                                                     

 

 

Have fun and don’t forget to send some photos of you completing activities to kris.campbell@eastayrshire.org.uk 🙂

 

Sungazers – 1/6/20

It’s June! Hope everyone has been enjoying this wonderful sunshine and is keeping safe!

This weeks task is a cookery one. At the weekend, Mrs Skinner and Mrs  Coulter were busy making ladybird biscuits with their families and thought you would like to join in too – it was great fun!

We have used – digestive biscuits, red icing, icing pens to decorate and any other icing decorations we could find in our cupboards.  Why don’t you have a go too – they were really tasty!

 

We also have a lovely story about a ladybird. It is called ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ and you can find it on Youtube.

Oak Weekly Challenges

We hope you have great week and enjoy the sunshine after a miserable weekend. Below we have included some activities that we hope you have fun trying out. There is no pressure to complete, however if you do we would love to see your photos.

Literacy –    

This week your challenge is to take food orders for your family.  Use your writing and communication skills and also don’t forget your signs.

  1. Can your write down the food item they would like?
  2.  Can you ask them ‘What do you want to eat?’
  3.  Can you ask them ‘Would you like a drink?’

Numeracy – 

Can you identify all the coins up to the value of £2. Get a cupcake tin and ask an adult to write the coin value.  From a selection of coin in a bowl, can you read the price tag, or listen to the price and identify the correct coin.

Cooking –

Let’s make chocolate brownies, a video has been made so click here to view the video and find out how to make them.

Art –

On your daily walk can you keep an eye out for stones.  A variety of sizes will be ideal as you are going to paint and use them as decorations for your garden.  If you have acrylic paint and clear lacquer this will be perfect to keep your design looking good and make them weatherproof.  Below is an idea but get creative and design your stones in any way you like.

The Oak class has a great artist, Miss Miller has created this lovely picture to represent all the classes that make up our school. Have an attempt at making your own Willow tree drawing. We look forward to seeing them and sharing with them with everyone.

 

Topic Work –

On your daily walk can you see how many signs you can identify. You could take a picture with an adult’s phone.  Then at home you can make a poster of all the signs you seen in your local community.  Can you tell everyone in your family what the sign says / means?

 

Music –

Get your family singing and signing along to this song, click here.  Feel free to send us any videos of you having a family sing a long. Click here for the link to Singing Hands video ‘Best Day of My Life’.

Life Skills –

These week your focus is to load / empty the dishwasher. Wash / dry the dishes in the sink. Do you know where everything goes? Where does the cutlery go? What about the plates?

Class Pet – Butterflies

I have fantastic news to share with you all, our five caterpillars have now grown into five beautiful butterflies! It is almost time to release them and let them fly free.  Mrs Murray is going to be very sad as she has loved looking after them!  Click here to see what they have been eating to help get strong and prepare them for moving on.

Have a great week Oak team! Continue with all your hard work, everyone is doing so well and we miss you greatly! Stay safe

 

 

 

 

Oak Class Pet

Breaking news Oak class, we have BUTTERFLIES! We have 2 so far and hoping the other 3 will make an appearance any day soon.

Have a look at the video that has been made for you, Mrs Murray has given these caterpillars a lot of love and chat to encourage them to keep growing. The video will show you the life cycle of our butterflies. Did you guess the colour correctly? Click here to watch the video.

Take care everyone and hopefully there will be more photos coming soon of the other butterflies.

Stars Activities 5

Hope you are all well. The weather has not been so good but hopefully the sunshine will be back soon and we can get outside again. 🌞

The bin men visit our homes every week to collect recycling and every three weeks to collect our green bins. Just now many Council workers are doing different jobs and some are helping the bin men. Thank you to all!  👏

Help your family organize your rubbish ready for the bin men. Recycle paper, glass and plastics in your recycling trolley and put black bags of non recyclable rubbish in the green bin. If you can, help pull out the bins onto the pavement for collection. Always remember to wash your hands afterwards.

The ladies and Mr Gardner have been busy sorting out the rubbish and recycling at home.

Floating/Sinking

Fill a basin or bowl with water then collect different small items from around the house and garden. Check if they float or sink. Try things such as a stone, flower, shell, plastic cup, pine cone, twig, coins, small ball, small plastic toy, paper or keys. Choose whatever you have available but ask first! Can you guess beforehand if it will float or sink?

Dice Game

Play a game of snakes and ladders with your family. Do good holding, shaking, listening and rolling then help to count the squares. Remember to wait your turn! Watch out for the snakes!

If you choose to do any of these activities then maybe you could send a photo or write a comment. We’d love to hear from you.

Have fun! Stay safe! ❤😊

Name Art

Good Morning 🙂

Todays activity is all about our names.

Write out a letter of your name, or your full name for an extra challenge. You can ask an adult to help with this part.

 

Next collect some different resources from your house or garden.

 

Use the materials to make the shapes of each letter.

Have a look at our work below for some examples. What letters can you see?
