Good Morning Team Lime and Willow!
It has been wonderful to see photographs of some of you engaging creatively in the space/planet activities. The commitment to home learning by you and your family’s highlights your shared enjoyment whilst completing these tasks together. A particular example was a role play space craft made of boxes and helmets covered in tin foil where a child from Lime class was playing with their sibling. I wish I could have been a fly on the wall to see what was being said during this activity. In addition, a child from Willow class has been drawing, cutting and using his imagination to make a 'drone' out of paper and a 'wind turbine', mainly out of toilet rolls which was a great use of media and materials.
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, choose one of the space themed recipe (see links below) and make it to have at snack time. Focus on using tools for a purpose with good control and coordination.
HAVE A CIRCLE TIME (PSED)
Complete the all about me bubble sheet (see link below) and discuss how some children are returning to school in bubbles and some are staying at home in their family bubbles.
COMPLETE A MORNING ADULT DIRECTED LEARNING ACTIVITY (PSED)
Read the story, Coming Back to School in a Bubble and discuss with your family (see link below). Challenge: How does this make you feel? Link to Zones of Regulation (Blue/ Green/ Yellow/ Red). Acknowledge feelings and talk about plan how we can keep in the green zone as much as possible.
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.
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 3), applying what you know about sounds? Where are the tricky words (we, the, to)? Where are the capital letters? Where is the full stop? What are they trying to get into the van? I wonder why?
We can get the big bed into the van.
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.
PRACTISE YOUR PHONICS
Complete the DfE Letters and Sounds lesson on: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCP_FbjYUP_UtldV2K_-niWw/channels?view_as=public and/or make a collection of objects from around your house. Can you write labels for each object on small pieces of paper?
HAVE A 5 MINUTE MATHS MEETING
Ask a grown-up to help you write down the 7 days of the week. Try solving some problems based on the days of the week, such as, ‘Today is Tuesday. Yesterday, Billy Bear went to the beach. What day did he go to the beach?’ or ‘Today is Thursday. Tomorrow, Katie Koala is going swimming. What day is she going swimming?’ Try making up some questions of your own too. Can you solve these season problems? Draw a picture of your answers.
COMPLETE AN AFTERNOON ADULT DIRECTED LEARNING ACTIVITY (UW)
Craters on the Moon Science Experiment (see links below for experiment, prompt cards and resources). Challenge: Can you record your findings?
I look forward to hearing about what has kept you busy today and hope you and your family have a good day.
