You will find lots of fabulous resources and activities to take part in this week. Each day there will be two 20 minute videos uploaded with fun activities for you to do – one at 11.30am and another at 3.30pm. Today at 3.30pm is a draw-off with two very talented illustrators, Nadia Shireen and Ed Vere. We know how much you love to draw too. Let us know how you get on!
Maybe this afternoon you could create a piece of Body Sensations art work (as mentioned in the PowerPoint from this morning (the examples are ‘butterflies in my tummy’ or ‘jelly legs’) – we would love to see your creations and fantastic ideas.
Maybe you’d like a different kind of Challenge? Have a look at this INspired Challenge, which will really get you thinking creatively – https://youtu.be/ZOBfNK9WWEg
Again, it would be good to hear how you got on with this.
Remember, you can still complete your Alternative Sports Day Activities and send your points total and photos to us before tomorrow, when Mrs Ferguson will add them all up and reveal which House has won.
Hopefully you are spending a little bit of your day outdoors! So here are some ideas to carry on your learning in the garden or out on a walk.
We will be identifying parts of a plant today –
Dig up a weed such as a dandelion and study the plant parts. Pick a petal from a buttercup and see the nectar at the base!
The following activity will help to identify some of these plant parts and also deepen your understanding of the importance each part plays:
Collect different leaves from your garden and create a picture using leaf rubbings – leaf rubbings are created by placing a piece of paper over your leaf and rubbing the side of a crayon over it to recreate the beautiful patterns. See how many different leaves you can include in your picture. You can also use bark from trees which works very well!
You will remember Mrs Piper’s beautiful bee art from a few weeks ago too:
SPORTS DAY POSTER
Mrs Ferguson has posted a request for you to make a poster for Sports Day:
Tuesday 26th May is supposed to be our annual sports day and we won’t let being at home stop us from taking part this year! Instead you will do sports day activities at home that week to earn points for your house. These activities will be posted on Monday 25th May- get this date in your calendar.
To get everyone motivated I would like you to make a poster please. This poster could promote sports day, cheer on the school, cheer on your house team or anything else related to sports day you can think of. For example:
KPS Sports Day Tuesday 26th May
Good Luck KPS
Hooray for Sports Day
GOOD LUCK Cameron or Douglas or Maitland or McKenzie
Take a picture of your poster and send it to Mr Lewis or on the Primary 5/4 Teams page.
I look forward to seeing your posters
As always, these are all suggested activities. Try and find some time to read during the day too. Hopefully you’ll be able to get outside in this lovely warm sunshine for some fresh air and exercise as well.
Monday and Tuesday next week are holidays and on Wednesday we will back posting more learning for you all on Teams, here on Glow and via e-mail.
We have worked together to put together some suggested fun activities you may like to try over the holiday weekend. As always, these are suggestions and the most important thing is that you stay safe, well and happy with your families at home.
Mrs Williamson, Mr Lewis, Mrs Gillespie and Mrs Ramsay
