Here is a guide to Wednesday!

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

Life skills – For this week: Give your child a shirt to practice buttoning them up.

*Here’s the tidy up song signifier to help you to be part of other tidy up routines in your house.


Literacy – Practice to write your name. Ask mum or dad to write it for you first with pencil and you can follow the lines with a pen. You can also use magnetic letters.



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

Story – Find a book of your choice and “read” it. Ask mum or dad to help you if you want to. Check if you are holding the book in the right position. Make sure you turn pages one at the time.

On Wednesday mornings we have Music with Gordon.  Go to Categories and select music and scroll down.  It is Music with Gordon 27 April: Primary.

It seems a long time ago but on Wednesdays we have swimming with Graeme.

I hope you enjoyed that.

Edinburgh Zoo has live webcams of some of their animals that you can watch

Time for some relaxation.

Have a great day !



Make music using the Bloom app

Bloom (£3.99) Create or listen to calming music with colourful visuals. The app is very intuitive and doesn’t require strong motor skills. Just touching the screen is enough to make a sound colour. Because the sounds and colours repeat and fade gaps in interactions are filled naturally and gently.

Good for: This would be a good app for a calm activity for one or even two or more people taking it in turns to play and sharing the screen.
