Good Morning Team Lime and Willow!
I hope you and your families had a lovely weekend.
This week is National Sports Week and Get Set 4 PE has designed ‘The Rainbow Games’. It would have been our sports day last week and we would like you to continue to be active and take part in these games that have been designed to be done at home or in school. Please do take some photographs of you and your family completing these as it would be amazing to create a special display in school. Remember to keep active and have fun!
Today you might like to:
Get some fresh air by going for a walk, into your garden or complete an exercise video online (see website list). Alternatively, this week is National Sports Week and Get Set 4 PE has designed ‘The Rainbow Games’. We would like you to play a game each day this week. You can use the score sheet to record what you have done. Today, play ‘Twister’.
HAVE A CIRCLE TIME (PSED)
Complete a ‘Brain Break Breathing’ activity to ensure a mindful start to your day.
With the support of your adult, complete the ‘Wellbeing Journal’ for today. Fill in the sheet or record in your own chosen method.
COMPLETE A MORNING ADULT DIRECTED LEARNING ACTIVITY (CL)
Write the caption, “Once upon a time…” on a piece of paper. Find 5 objects from around your house, garden or community that are related to plants and growing. Can you tell a story using them as prompts?
LEARNING THROUGH PLAY
Play for at least an hour in the morning and in the afternoon with no TV or electrical gadgets.
Enjoy a drink and a healthy snack with your child. You might like to talk about how and why it is important to keep healthy and where food comes from. You might like to include some maths learning through snack by sharing, doubling or halving as well as carrying out some simple addition or subtraction using the snack items.
READING FOR PLEASURE
Read to your child a story or two. Don’t forget to talk about: the title, author, illustrator, blurb, what is happening and where, what has been said, how characters are feeling and what they might be thinking. Can you recall the sequence of the story? Beginning/middle/end?
READ TO LEaRN SKILLS AND APPLY THEM
Write the sentence below on a piece of paper. Can you read the sentence (Phase 4), applying what you know about the diagraphs (two letters, one sound: ‘ck’)? Where are the tricky words (‘into’ and ‘the’)? Where are the capital letters? What is a crab? Where did the crab go? How did the crab travel to the rock?
A crab crept into a crack in the rock.
Listen to your child read and discuss their book. Look on the website Oxford owl for free eBooks if required or you can use books from your book corner. Read the book together stopping to allow your child to read the words you think they might know.

HAVE A 5 MINUTE MATHS MEETING
Measuring Time: Play a game of hide and seek. When you are counting, whilst other people hide, try counting slowly to 10 or 20. Does this give
the others enough time to hide? How could you give the others more or less time?
COMPLETE AN AFTERNOON ADULT DIRECTED LEARNING ACTIVITY (EAD)
Have a look at the work of Andy Goldsworthy in the attachments. Go on a scavenger hunt for natural materials and make your very own piece of land art. Can you take a photograph of your finished work and share it with me?
I look forward to hearing about what has kept you busy today and hope you and your family have a good day.
