A Biscuit Bear Rainbow and a Tree that is a Pig

Dear children and parents,

Good morning, I hope you are all okay and enjoying your time off together.

Today, why not practise counting to 50 using different voices e.g 1-10 monster voices, 11-20 fairy voices etc. Play ‘fastest fingers first’, both you and your child put your hands behind your backs, call out the number 7 and the first person to show the number on their fingers is the winner. Repeat with different amounts to 10.

Sound Hunt
Encourage your child to hunt around the house or garden for objects beginning with letters from the alphabet. Encourage your child to make a list of the items they find. Maybe set a timer, how many can they find in 10 minutes?

Whilst at home, encourage your child to participate as much as possible with household jobs. In doing this, you will be supporting your child’s organisational skills, fine motor skills and providing them with responsibility and a sense of purpose. Suitable jobs could be: teaching them to make their own bed in the morning, tidying up after themselves, pairing up socks and folding washing, washing and drying up, dusting, gardening – planting seeds, watering, digging etc

Thank you Ned for your beautiful picture yesterday, you really filled my bucket.

Dragon Week

This week we have been exploring the topic of ‘Dragons’ using our core book ‘George and the dragon’.

We made dragon eggs!

Sarah and Kitty decided to make a nest for their eggs.

The children enjoyed playing with the wooden blocks and small world dragons and princesses. Outside the children used the large scale equipment to make dens to hide in, so they wouldn’t be captured by any dragons flying over. They also made castles and caves using the equipment…

Jack and the Beanstalk

Look at all our amazing Jack and the Beanstalk work!

We learnt how to make the colour green, we painted curvy beanstalks to help Jack take back his gold. We  made character story props and wrote speech bubbles. We thought carefully about what each character might say and how they might say it.

In maths this week we have been investigating size. We had to work in teams to try and build the tallest/longest beanstalk. After much planning, preparation and measuring we worked out that Daniel and Earnest had made the longest beanstalk. Daniel said “We used the giant paper for the giant and that’s how we made the tallest beanstalk!”
