World Earth Day Art

Today, April 22nd, marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the annual celebration of the environmental movement. Below are some examples of Art work that you may like to create at home.

Why not get some green and blue paint and dip a balloon into it and press it down to create a pattern of the Earth:

Group 4 – Wednesday 22nd April

Good Morning everyone.

Circle Time

Today I’m feeling

How are you feeling today?


Life Skills

Once you have completed your morning circle it’s time to get the day started choosing your job to help around the house today.


Have a look at the language section to find out what Laura has planned for you today.


Check the blog for ideas from Gerry. If you want, you can join in with Joe Wicks live at 9am.


Today we are going to listen to a story about feelings. Ruby’s worry is a delicate story about feeling worried and to realise that everybody gets worries, and they are nothing to be ashamed of. Enjoy.

Sign of the day

Check Lorna’s sign of the day video.


Have a look at the art section to see what Steve wants you to do.


Check out in the Science section to find out what is your challenge for today.


In the story Ruby’s Worry, When Ruby makes a friend – who has a worry too – and talks about what’s bothering her, everything explodes with colour and the world goes back to normal.

Are you feeling worried today? What can you do?

Ways to stop feeling worried:

  1. The best thing to do is to stop, take a deep breath and focus on all the things you are good at.
  2. Thinking positive thoughts will help you feel better in yourself.
  3. Doing a different activity
  4. Getting some exercise
  5. Eating some healthy food
  6. Sometimes the best solution is to relax – find a comfortable chair to sit in or have a lie down, slow down your breathing and chill out.

Find someone you trust and talk to them – it might be a parent, a friend, or a teacher. Sharing a problem makes it seem less huge.

Have a nice day.

Happy Wednesday

Happy Wednesday 🛍🌐 | Village

Hello Yellow Class!

Hope you are all well and everyone is keep safe.

Here is a guide to Wednesday! Please take it at your own child’s pace.

 Circle Time – We start our circle time singing “hello – super simple songs” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVlcKp3bWH8

This is also the time we started to learn some Spanish. Leave you here some Spanish translations.

Good morning – “Buenos Dias”

Hello – “Hola”

How are you? – “como estas?”

We then talk about how we are feeling today (happy, sad, tired, and excited). We find how does the weather look like and what day it is – You can do your calendar book.

And we finish our circle time sharing the last day news – Feel free to share your news, by email, posting here on blog some videos, photos or comments. J

 Movement – Here some of our favourite movement songs. You can use this ones or any other of your preference






Life skills – challenge of the week: tidy up your toys and games after playing with itJ. Here’s the link of the tidy up song that we normally use in the class that your child easily recognises.


Literacy – Let’s review the alphabet today. Here’s a song that you love and is so familiar for you.



P.E. – go on the PE section of the blog and choose one of the activities your PE teacher posted for you.

Story – Watch The Princess & The Alphabet Kingdom- Preschool ABCs Nursery Stories


Sign of the day – Don’t forget to be practising the sign of the day – if you want to send me a video then feel free

Art – For today’s art activity, I leave you some ideas that you can do with your children, according to the taste and resources they have at home. Special interest for the fact that it is without mess. We love art and everything that allows us to explore but it is always better when we save carpets, right? 😉


Science – Do you know which objects sink or float? Here you have a fun and easy experiment that you can make at home. Bring objects from your garden or when you go out for a walk.

Here’s the idea J  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIYr10Nntbw

 HWB – Let’s see if you can still remember this:

– can you name and find some parts of your body. You can do it pointing to your body or you can have fun and sing and dance with “head, shoulders, knees and toes” so familiar for you and I know you love it.


If you would like to explore a little bit further why not try it in Spanish. Have fun J


I hope you have a lovely day. Keep safe, stay happy!!! Always remember, I am right here, just on the other side of the screen! 😀
