ACTIVITY 3

LABELING A PLANT

When a bean seed grows it has different parts to it. 

The bean is the seed. We water the seed for it to grow. When it starts to grow the seed cracks open and roots begin to grow and sprout down in the ground(jar or bag)

As it starts ti grow the bean seed grows a stem that grows up towards the sun.

This then grows leaves. 

Look at the pictures below of a seed that has grown. 

Can you draw your own and label it.

As you all know schools are back from 29th June and children have been offered a place 1 day a week in their bubble of 6. We thought that with this in mind we would do a one off theme  'Keeping Safe', where we will explore washing hands and staying 2 metres apart and looking at feelings and the importance of friendship. We hope that this will help to prepare them for this huge step in a weeks time.

Click on the Story PDF below which tells a story of a group of friends and what they have been doing doing Lockdown. 

Create a memory montage of Lockdown. 

Draw pictures of your memories of Lockdown with a simple word underneath the pictures. Nursery can send us a video of you telling us what your favourite moments were Think about:

 

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

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 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.

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.

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 4

FLOATING AND SINKING INVESTIGATION

The Princess accidently threw her ball into the water and it sank to the bottom of the pond. 

However we can make a ball float. 

Try this. 

Get a ball of big plasticine or playdough weighing around 100g and a water tray. Place the ball of plasticine into the water tray. 

What happened? Did it float or sink?

 

Picture 1
Picture 2
Ask your child to explore that ball of playdough- shape it, move it, mould it to shape to make it float. There is a way. Do not show them how. Guide them. They way to make it float is to mould the plasticine into a boat shape. DO NOT TELL THEM. LET THEM INVESTIGATE!
Picture 1
Picture 2

Now can you get the playdough boat that you made sink? 

You can use marbles or money for this. 

How many marbles/coins do you think it will take to make the boat sink? 

Test it out. Take photographs and send to us. 

Picture 1

ACTIVITY 4

SNAIL TRAILS

Snails produce slime, which is a kind of mucus, via a special gland on the front of the snail's foot. ... Although their slime definitely helps them to move along more efficiently, snails don't need it to move. They have muscles on the underside of their feet that generate pulses that propel them forward.

 

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

 

Collect some snails in the garden. They can be found usually in gardens at night under rotten pieces of wood or wet boards that lie on the floor. You can find them on hedgerows, marshes, woodlands, pond margins and garden furniture

 

Place the slugs onto a sheet of black or dark paper/card. Watch and observe as they leave behind a trail of silvery slime. Take photographs and send them to us.

HENRI MATISSE- 'THE SNAIL'

The Snail portrait showed Matisse's interest in bright colour. He arranged complementary colours alongside each other to create a vibrant effect. For example the green touched the red, and the blue was next to the orange. This made the picture extra zingy and really attracted people's eye attention!

Topic Activity 1

Eco /World Environmental Day Task-5th June

Mrs Caviell and Mrs Thomas have asked the whole school to complete a task linked to ECO and WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL DAY on FRIDAY 5TH JUNE. We have decided to make it easy for you parents and link our task to BEES.

Bees are in trouble, as many of their homes and food is being destroyed through pollution, daily mowing of grass verges and the pesticides used during farming. 

Luckily, there are plenty of other ways you can bee a hero and do you bit to protect these all important creatures- most of which can be done in the comfort of your own home/outdoor space. 

In honour of Eco and World Environmental Day we have compiled a  round-up of all the best ways you can help save the bees and we are buzzing about it. 

 

-You can either create a bee house or hotel using recycles materials OR

-You can create a bee bath using recyclable materials- water is essential for bees just like humans! They use water to drink and to keep the hive/home cool. 

 

-We will then tweet all your pictures of your creations on or before FRIDAY 5TH JUNE. When you have finished your designs put them in the garden and observe what happens. Take photographs of any bees you see near your designs and send them to us. 

 

BEE HOUSE/BEE HOTEL

Here are some ideas for you if you choose to make a bee house. Remember it has to be recycleable natural resources.
