Today Mrs Hawthorn has a recipe for you to follow. Can you make porridge playdough?
Three Bears science
Today you are going to look at size and Mrs Hawthorn has made up a sheet for you to look at. You can either point to the screen to answer the questions or print it out.
Three Bears numeracy
After listening to the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears how about trying to retell the story to your family. You could check your toybox and bedroom for toys to be the characters, you will need a big, medium and small toy. You could ask a grown up for 3 different sized bowls and spoons and maybe you have some different kinds of chairs you could use. You could make the toys act out the story using funny voices for the bears and Goldilocks. I hope your family enjoy your version of this lovely story. (Just please don’t break any chairs though)
This week, Mrs Hawthorn has chosen the story Goldilocks and the Three Bears and the activities will be about this book. Today you can watch the video of the story.
Today you can visit the park with Cosmic Kids Yoga and meet Stella the stick insect, like the one in the story whose brilliant trick is to cling to leaves and to pretend to be like a stick!
My favourite minibeast is the ladybird. Did you find any ladybirds when you did your bug hunt? You can make a ladybird using craft materials you have at home or you could try the different ladybird games on Topmarks. You can count, match and order the numbers. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/learning-to-count/ladybird-spots
Here is a picture of my ladybird stone which I will add to our lockdown caterpillar.
In the story yesterday, we heard about lots of different minibeasts. Today’s activity is to hunt for minibeasts: Look high, look low and see what little beasts you can find in the garden and around your neighbourhood. Do not forget to peek under stones, in the grass, and behind rocks…
Here is a link to a minibeast bug hunt to tick off what minibeasts you find. You could use tally marks to count how many you find of each. https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/media/48349/minibeast-hunt.pdf
Today we are going to look at the book ‘Mad about Minibeasts’ and the activities this week will be about minibeasts.
Here is a link to the book for you to listen to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SW-7MgHEZOE
Can you draw minibeast shapes in the dirt with sticks? A round body of a spider, what about the legs? Swirls for a snail’s shell. Wiggly lines for a worm.
Morning boys and girls!
Hope you’re all keeping safe and well. At the weekend Miss Wallace accidentally broke her bird feeder in her garden! The birds kept coming to visit my garden to find some food and they were wondering where it had gone!
So I decided to make one out of a milk carton. It was super easy to make and thought I would share it with you in case you have some bird seeds spare! Let me know how you get on! Miss Wallace X
Now that the seasons are changing from Spring to Summer, the trees are covered with green leaves and lots of flowers are beginning to blossom with lovely colourful flowers, here are some I have in my garden or have seen while out for a walk. The pictures are of purple and white petunias; red roses; yellow marigolds and orange chrysanthemums.
Why don’t you have a look in your garden or when out on your travels for different colours of flowers in your area. Ask a grown up to tell you the name or if they don’t know you can take a photo and research the name at home. Count how many different colours and species you can find. You can use the ‘PlantSnap: Identify Plants’ app to identify the flowers.
Maybe you could draw some lovely colourful flowers to show us, Mrs Hawthorn. Colours of flowers
Good morning, everyone!
I hope you are having a good week.
I hope you are all safe and well! I have been enjoying my daily walks in the sunshine and when I was out I saw some lovely daisy’s. When I was a little girl I used to love making daisy chains so I decided to sit down and make myself a daisy chain necklace and I wondered if you would like to make one too. I look forward to seeing some of your pictures.
