Orange Class Thursday 7th May

Hello everyone!

Another fine day awaits us, blue sky and sunny.  Lets get going!

Morning Circle Time

On Tuesdays we usually have dance.


Time for maths


Time for jobs

Let’s go outside!

Shall we make some gloop then have fun in the garden!

Slime - Mud Mates Messy Play Blog - cornflour gloop recipe




1. Mix 2 cups of cornstarch to 1 cup of water into a bowl. Mix the cornstarch and water until your oobleck is formed

2. If you find the mixture is a little too watery and not forming into a solid when you pull the gloop out of your bowl then add more cornstarch. If you find the mixture is not dripping like a liquid, add a little more water. Just keep experimenting until you get the consistency you want.

It does get a bit messy so you might want to play outside!

Story Time!

Sarah is reading Mog and the granny

That was super!


Time to chill!

Have a great Thursday!


Waterlilies – Art

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s post about the Artist, Claude Monet. Today we are going to try creating another picture based on his artwork. Claude Monet is probably best known for his paintings of waterlilies. See if you can have a go at painting your very own waterlily pond.

You will need: a sponge, some paint and a paintbrush.

begin by dipping your sponge into some blue paint, then pull the sponge from the top of the page all the way down the page making large vertical streaks. Keep doing until the entire page is covered.

Add some streaks of green and white paint on top of your blue background. The green is for the lily pads and the white is for the light reflecting on the surface of the water.

Next add some dabs of paint for the flowers. You can use any colours you wish. This can be done either with a paintbrush or with your fingers. You may wish to place a second colour in the middle of your first colour.

Once completed leave to dry and marvel at your creation!
