Thursday 2nd April for Purple Class

Good morning!

Hello Can you sing hello in a different language today?

Calendar I can’t believe it is already April!  How many months have we had since January and the beginning of the year? How many months have we got until Christmas?

Movement another Purple class favourite!

Life skills  I expect you have all been busy working and if you could do this one job every day it is a great life skill!

clean table

Maths  I have attached some maths addition booklets for you – let me know if can’t access it

Fiddly fingers – if you have some white wool you can make some pompoms

Kids Crafts: Easy Pom Pom Bunnies

Story I loved hearing this story over at the hub with one of the children – it made me laugh but also sad – sometimes we don’t know why we are grumpy – thanks to Tracey for this story suggestion

Signs of the day – check out  the Category on here for today’s signs – I enjoyed yesterday’s fruits

Music – check out Connie’s entry for today under Music

Sensory –  how about using an empty bottle and making your own sensory bottle?  It is great to look at when maybe feeling a bit angry or confused like the monkey in the story (especially if add some glitter if have any left over from Christmas)


Dance – check out Rachel’s entry for today – this class love a dance

See you tomorrow!




Thursday 2nd March

Good Morning Group 6

It was another sunny day yesterday so hope fully the sun will shine again today!

Here is the timetable for the Day

Morning Routines

Emotions – I have included an emotions task for you to complete when you are picking your emotions today. You can find it on the daily e-mail. You can print out if you can from the e-mail or open it up and point to the screen with a helper.

Life skills – Have you tried the laundry yet this week?Here is a handy card to help you sort out your colours from your whites. You can print out as a cut and stick activity or use it to make a laundry ‘game’ of the washing tasks in your house.

Movement – have a go at this dance to waken you up this morning……love this song!!

Maths – See the Math Blog posts for some new activities today.

Fiddly Fingers – Can you try this challenge today? When the clothes are washed take them out and hang them up to dry using pegs.

Story – you can tune in to David Walliams Elevenses for a story read aloud by the author himself. Today’s story is from the book The Worst Children. Enjoy!

Elevenses with The World of David Walliams

Sign of the Day – with Lorna

Music – Gordon has put some new music activities on the Blog today

Sensory /Dance – Dance with Rachel. Can you learn the new moves she has put on her post? Use the sensory lights post to listen to relaxing music after the dancing has finished. A great way to end the day.

Well done Group 6,  you have earned a break!!

Painted pebbles – Art

The painting of pebbles and leaving them around for others to find is something that is popular all over the world. Perhaps you could write a word or a nice message on a stone and then hide it either in your home or garden for a family member to find or if you are out for a short walk then for a stranger to find. When found it will make the person feel very happy and then they could leave it somewhere else for someone else to find and so it goes on. A never ending source of joy!

Here is a link to a good newsround clip about it:


1st April PE Lesson

Hello everyone,

For today’s PE we’re going to have a couple of challenges.  First why not going for a walk? Walking is a great exercise for your body and mind and it’s not every day we have this good weather in Scotland. To make it more interesting we can agree some challenges with our family like, count the trees we see, count the birds, look for bears and rainbow in windows, we can even make it a competition who can see more birds, trees, red objects etc. Just remember you should always walk close to home (no driving) and keep social distance.

Another great idea would be to Join Vicky community group page we’re going on a bear hunt, just follow the link:


When you come back why not try to exercise on a chair/wheel chair we have some friends that have to do a lot of things on a wheel chair, I wonder how it feels, could you do it?

Follow the link below to a web page with some chair exercises and see which ones you could do, if some are to difficult don’t worry just do the ones you can.

Have fun and see you after the holidays.


Group 1 & 2 – Science Wed 1st April

Hi everyone,

Today we are going to learn about the sense of taste (I can taste with my tongue)

1- Start with Five senses song

2 – What have you tasted at breakfast/lunch today?

How did they taste?

  1. Sweet (like honey)
  2. Sour (like a lemon)
  3. Salty (like crisps and sausages)
  4. Bitter (like dark chocolate and cocoa powder)

3. Easter nest activity

Tracey had this great idea about cooking Science and I thought I would share it with you.  Can you make an Easter nest? Find the recipe below or use your own.


  • 200g milk chocolate broken into pieces
  • 85g shredded wheat, crushed
  • 2 x 100g bags mini chocolate eggs
  • cupcakes case


  1. Melt the chocolate in a small bowl placed over a pan of barely simmering water.
  2. Pour the chocolate over the shredded wheat and stir well to combine.
  3. Spoon the chocolate wheat into 12 cupcake cases and press the back of a teaspoon in the centre to create a nest shape.
  4. Place 3 mini chocolate eggs on top of each nest.
  5. Chill the nests in the fridge for 2 hrs until set.

Taste it! Yummy!!!

Does it taste sweet or salty?
