This weekend Muslims celebrate Eid al-Fitr – also known as the Feast of Fast-Breaking as it marks the end of the Ramadan fasting period.
Have a blessed Eid!
Would you like to look at some photographs to see what your friends have been doing?
Remember Lorna’s sign of the day!
Next it is time for a tidy up. What are the jobs for today?
Let’s do some Art with David
Art – Shaving foam marbling
Materials needed: a tray, dish or similar container, shaving foam, food colouring, toothpick, wooden skewer or pencil, paper or card and a piece of thick card or cloth ‘scraper’.
Start by squirting out some shaving foam onto your dish. You only need a thin layer, and this will act as your base. Then drop on some food colouring. You can add as many different colours as you like. Use a toothpick, wooden skewer or pencil to swirl the food colouring through the shaving foam to create a design you like. Then press a piece of paper or card on to the shaving foam, smoothing the paper/card a little so that all the surface is in contact with the foam. It only needs to touch for a second or two for the food colouring to transfer. Carefully peel back the paper/card and place it face-up on the table. You can repeat the process again and again, adding more food colouring if you want to. Once your marbling surface becomes too full of colours simply rinse off all the colour and foam and begin the process again.
On Thursdays we have P.E. first thing in the morning. Today it is with Gerry!
Good Morning, We all hope you enjoyed Sports Day last week and hope you enjoyed meeting some new Friends.
Mira and So in particular wanted to say a big thank you for taking part and also …
Today we are going to continue with some activities from Mia & So.
Activity 1 – Warm Up Challenge
Mira and So would like you to imagine you are an Olympic Volleyball Player in this challenge. You don’t need any equipment, just a space to sit or lay on the floor and your voice or imagination. See link – Play Without Equipment – Challenge
Activity 2 -Jingle Jar For this activity you need a small jar or tub and some dried peas, rice, lentils or pasta, or anything else that will rattle to make a noise. In this game Mira & So want you to use one of your super-senses. Preferably through touch or sound but you can decide. You will also need a blind fold for one of the players. If you find it too difficult don’t worry, you can ask if you can peek a little. See link – Listen Up or feel the vibration
Note: You might have to change this game slightly but don’t worry be flexible. As long as you can shake the tub with the rattle for 10 seconds then that counts too. Can you do that 3 times each? or Lay on the floor with your eyes covered and guess what side the noise of vibration is coming from, maybe even guess what part of your body it rolled into.
Activity 3 – Become the Teacher
Mira & So think its a good idea for you to now become the PE teacher. They would like you to create your own active game. Have a look around the house and decide what equipment is safe to use. Will you play indoors or outdoors. Its up to you.
Here are some ideas to help – Be the Teacher – Active Indoors Challenge
Well done today, you have been very creative!
Please remember there are lots of PE & Movement activities here on this blog and you can repeat any of these if you wish. Repetition is good. Today’s lesson if just some newer challenges. Just do what you can.
I hope you enjoyed that.
Time for Maths!

First today it is Friday Assembly. Choose Assemblies on the right menu.
Now it’s time for Morning Circle.
Don’t forget Lorna’s Sign of the Day (category Sign of the Day).
Did you know that this morning there is another live event at Chester Zoo ? Today we have endangered species including Orangutans! What is a Visayan warty pig? Have a look via Facebook and let me know!
I always try to watch at least some of the live cams. They are great!
Talking about great have a look at these great photographs of some professional cooking!
The sun is shining, let’s get outside straight away! Let’s go on a Minibeast Hunt.
I have an ant hotel in Animal Crossing. Have you played Animal Crossing?
Time for some maths. Today we are looking at money. Sorting coins is a great money activity to to keep your kids entertained! It’s so simple and an easy early learning activity.
There are two ways to do this: no-prep and low-prep. Take your pick.
The no-prep way: Dump out all your change on the table and have kids sort it.
The low-prep way: On a large piece of paper draw circles and label them with coin values and names. Kids sort coins accordingly. (See photo above)
There are even various ways to sort coins!
By coin value. Pennies, 5p, 10p etc.
By coin size. Line them up according to size.
By colour. Pennies in one pile, everything else in another.
By picture. Show your child the way not all coins have the same picture on the front.
By country. If you have foreign coins, add some into the mix!
By the date. A really interesting way to sort coins!
Depending on how hands-on you want to be you can turn the coin sorting activity into a discussion about coin values. For example, show them how 5 pennies make a 5p. Ten pennies make a 10p. Two 5ps make a 10p and so on.
