Well Hello Pinettes! How are you all?
Well again – what about this weather???
This is LGBT+ Awareness Month and if you have driven or walked past the school you will have seen the LGBT+ Flag proudly displayed.
So this week’s blog is all about our differences and our similiarites
Literacy, Nature, Art and Craft.
Below is a suggestion for a couple of books, some we have read before, but they all have a silimar theme that we are all different in some ways, the same in others but we are all unique.
What about making yourself a Flamingo – the only rule is it cannot just be PINK!! Maryland Zoo has a Caribbean Flamingo called ‘Bumper’ you can learn all about him, find out what he eats and how tall he is, and even watch him and his friends on the live web cam. Maryland Zoo
Next the Rainbow Fish, in this link it is read by Ernest Borgnine (he has been in a lot of Movies!) The Rainbow Fish
What about making a colourful sparkly fish, I will send you all some instructions. What about going onto the internet and seeing if you can find any real rainbow fish.
Last year in class we read Tango makes 3 we really enjoyed this story, so thought you would like to hear it again. This is a lovely story all about two boy penguins called Roy and Silo, then baby Tango comes along. You can look up loads of information on penguins.
One last story The World made a Rainbow
In the first Lockdown we all made Rainbows for our windows, think about making another one like the little girl in this story. What about a sensory Rainbow with different materials for each colour? ArtBar has some really great ideas!
Singing and Signing
Lets practice signing all the different colours
What about a colour hunt?
- How many Red things can you find in the kitchen?
- How many Yellow things can you find in the fridge?
- How many Pink things can you find in the bathroom?
- How many Green things can you find in the garden?
- How many Purple things can you find in the living room?
- How many Orange things can you find on your walk?
- How many Blue things can you find in your cupboard?
Which colour did you find the least of and which the most?
Now don’t forget it is Valentines Day on Sunday, so what about making a card for someone special – cards are always nicer when they are hand made.
And Friday is Chinese New Year – Year of Ox! Red Ted Art has loads of crafty ideas for you to try, you could make a dragon or an Ox.
Remember to check out the sensory sessions below if you haven’t already done so.
Well have a lovely week Pinettes!!
Love the Pine Ladies
