What did you do during Lockdown?

What was your favourite part of Lockdown?

What was your least favourite part of Lockdown?

 

Draw your memories in form of posters. You may want to include a rainbow in your design. These posters can then be kept forever as a reminder of what you did. See some ideas in the pictures below. 

 

You could use a large white bed sheet cut down or large piece of material and draw loads of memories all over it. Let this be a project and add to it every day. This will be a brilliant memory to keep forever.  Don't forget to write a date on it. 

 

Some examples of Lockdown memories may include:

 

-Walking with my family

-Watching films 

-Playing games

-playing in the garden

-Clapping for the NHS

ACTIVITY 4

Kindness Bucket

So far over the past 12 weeks, we have been keeping safe by:

 

-Staying at home

-washing our hands

-Keeping our distance

 

It is still very important that we do all this. Even though we are glad to finally be able to see our friends and family at a distance we must still be careful. 

 

Despite not being able to hug our friends/family, we can still show them kindness and show that we care for them in lots of different ways.

 

Listen to the story below called 'Have you filled your bucket today'. 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpF8LVZoClE

 

We want you to design your bucket. Get some card and draw a bucket template. Decorate the cut out bucket with patterns/collage materials and stick your bucket template onto an empty box or container to make your bucket 3D. 

 

You can use some of the examples of bucket designs below or design your own. 

ACTIVITY 5

FILLING YOUR BUCKET

Now you have designed a bucket we need to think about how to fill our bucket with kindness. 

 

What is kindness?

 

Kindness is being friendly

Kindness is looking after others

Kindness is helping others

Kindness is being nice to others

 

How can we show kindness and still keep our 2 metre distance?

 

We can give someone a smile

We can say hello

We can wave

We can put our thumbs up

If someone is sad ask them if they are alright.

 

Watch the video below which shows people doing acts of kindness for others. 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3ld9_p2bS0

 

Think of your friend(s).

Write their name(s) on the bucket.

Now think of things that you like about your friend and write them down e.g. nice smile, beautiful hair, funny, kind etc

Next think of different ways that you can show kindness to your friends and write them down e.g. smile at them, say nice things to them etc Remember social distance activities. 

 

You can use the examples shown below to help you. These can then be placed inside your bucket. When you are back in school or see your friend again you can then do some of these acts of kindness. 

 

ACTIVITY 6

SORTING FRIENDLY/UNFRIENDLY

Click on the link below and print out the cards.

Can you discuss each picture and what is happening. Sort into 'Friendly' and 'Unfriendly'

ACTIVITY 1

-Draw a picture of the Princess in the story and think of words to describe her character throughout the story. Write these words around the picture of the Princess. 

Use the character description charts as a guide to helping you think of words. 

ACTIVITY 2

-The Princess and the Frog Prince are getting married! Write an invitation inviting someone to this special occasion. Use the pictures and templates below to help you. If you do not have access to a printer then copy the headings onto plain paper and decorate. 

Remember to include:

-What the special occasion is

-Who the special occasion is for

-Where the wedding is

-What month the wedding is

-Telephone Number to contact

You can print the template above of a wedding invitation if you would like to or use them to create your own with your own drawings. 

 

ACTIVITY 3

Create a menu for the Royal wedding. Think of the foods that you want to include. What types of food do people eat at weddings? Think of the starters, main course, desserts or maybe your guests just want buffet finger food.  Maybe you can do the ' Children's Menu 'for the wedding and choose foods that you like to eat. 

 You can use the examples to help you. You can print out the templates if you would like to but if not you can design and draw your own menu's. 

Nursery children can print off the food flashcards to cut and paste a picture menu.

ACTIVITY 1

If you do not have access to a printer then make your own lily pads using paper and number them.

Nursery can order numbers 1-5 or 1-10.  

Reception can order numbers 1-20. 

Mix all the numbered lily pads up on the floor. Children create a number line using the lily pads from 1-5, 1-10 or 1-20.  

Ask children to be frogs and jump on a numbered lily pad that you call out e.g. jump on number 7, 6 etc

Take 1 lily pad away. What number is missing? Repeat for lots of other numbers. 

Click on the link below to print out the numbered lily pads. 

ACTIVITY 2

Print out the sheets below to practice forming the numbers 1-5, 1-10 and 1-20. 

If you do not have access to a printer then you can write numbers:

- using chalk out in the garden

-Using shaving foam on the table 

-Painting the numbers

-Using pencils, felts etc

 

ACTIVITY 3

Sequencing numbers within 10 and 20. Listen to Jack Hartman singing the counting to 20 song by clicking on the link below. 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MVzXKfr6e8

 

You can play lots of games to sequence numbers within 10 and 20. 

Use your lily pad number cards to 10- only give 4 cards e.g. 5,2, 9, 7

Children will be asked what number comes first- 2.

Then they will be asked what is the next number after 2- 5

Repeat sequencing the numbers  from the smallest to the biggest e.g.   2,5,7 and 9

Repeat for other non consecutive numbers e.g   1,4,6,8    2,4,6,8    3,5,7,9 etc

 

If you have access to a printer you can print off and complete these worksheets. 

ACTIVITY 4

COUNTING

Click on the links below to practice counting out sets of objects to match given numbers within 10 and 20.

GAME

Now use the numbered lily pads that you have printed or made or you can just write down the numbers 1-5, 1-10 and 1-20 on pieces of paper to create numbered flashcards.

Turn the cards over so that the number cannot be seen.

Choose 1 card at a time and turn it over.

Your child says the number that has been turned over e.g. 3 and then counts out 3 objects onto the numbered lily pad or numbered flashcard. ( for the objects you can use anything- sweets, buttons, shells, stones if outside, pasta shells etc)

Repeat for all other numbers.

Then put the number cards in the correct order. 

 

If you have access to a printer then you can use the game below to count out the correct number of frogs onto the lily pads. Print out the lily pads and number them 1-5, 1-10 or 1-20. Then print out lots of frogs. Children then put the correct number of frogs onto the correct numbered lily pad. 

 

Also included are worksheets that you can print out and complete including number peg cards for Nursery where you count the objects on the cards and put a peg over the correct answer. 

ACTIVITY 5

During the rhyme '5 Speckled Frogs' each frog kept jumping into the pool 1 by 1, so this week we are exploring  and recapping once again on our knowledge of 'Take Away'. Click on the game below to play.
