Morning to you all on another sunny day!

It is looking like those fantastic dens you made yesterday will come in handy again today.  The temperature is likely to stay in the 20s so we are predicting a warm one!

We hope you have managed to find the time to read the updated risk assessment as well as watch Mr. Brown's most recent video which will update you with the latest information on the school's plans for a partial reopening for Years 5 and 6 on the 15th June followed by years 3 and 4 three weeks later. 

We will be in touch on Monday as we would like your feedback on what you think about the school running a breakfast club in September and whether this would appeal to you.

Also we would like to draw your attention to our need for a new school governor so if this is something you feel would be of interest to you then the deadline for the application is 3rd July. 

In the meantime we hope you are enjoying your Spring Bank. 

Today's activities can be done outside near or in a water tray, a bucket or a washing up bowl.

1) You could practise your number formation on the ground with chalk and then trace over them with a paintbrush and water enabling you to see them disappear in the sunshine.

2) You could water the flowers in your garden or the seeds you have planted.

3) You could make soapy water and use old toothbrushes to wash and clean your toys.

4) You could explore floating and sinking some objects.

5) You could recycle some old bottles or soap dispenses to use as water squirters.

6) You could have a water relay race - This can be done against another member of the family. You each carry water in a small container from a starting line to fill your own bucket or container at a finishing line.  The first to transport enough water to fill their own bucket wins!

7) You could use pans and utensils.

8) You could put little toys in water, freeze them and then chip away at them with a toy hammer or tools.

 

Remember that water play:

*Improves fine motor skills.

*Allows children time to explore and experiment.

*Is calming for children.

*Develops children's imaginations.

*Can be done outside.

Welcome to Wednesday!

The weather again is looking like it is going to be warm (21 degrees) so sun hats and suncream are looking likely!

We thought that today you might like to make an outdoor den, somewhere that you can take shelter from the mid day sun.  If you have limited outdoor space you may use your local surroundings (the woods) to build your den.

Here are some instructions that you may like to follow.

1. Select a suitable area in your garden. 

2. Check that the ground is clear and that it is safe from any loose branches (if near trees), leaves or pebbles.

3. If you can find 2 places to attach some rope/cord.  You may have 2 trees or 2 washing line poles.

4. Drape a sheet/blanket/tarp or any kind of covering you have over the rope/cord.

5. On one side of the sheet improvise and secure it in some way. (could use tent pegs if you have some)

6. Theme your den! (A storytelling hideout, a castle, a dragon's den etc..)

7. Make it comfortable.

8. Add a rucksack with any accessories to suit the theme chosen.

Dens are great places to let the imagination run wild and they let children be whatever they want to be! Dens allow children to test boundaries and experiment with their behaviour.

Your child may even have their own ideas for how to build their den successfully, if they do support their creative thinking and encourage them to solve any problems they come up against by themselves.

Good morning to another sunny Tuesday!

We have been so lucky the last two months that the weather has been as good as it has been.  This has meant that the outdoors has played a huge part of your home learning.

This week the weather is looking very promising again so we thought that you might like to try making your own homemade healthy ice lollies to help cool yourselves down!

Here are a few recipes for some ice lollies that you might like to try!

3. Pour the mixture into ice lolly moulds and attach the tops.

Monday 25th May 2020

Welcome back to you all on this Bank Holiday Monday!

We hope that you have all enjoyed a lovely weekend despite there being a few rain showers and that you have managed to get into the outdoors for some fresh air.  We are sure that your gardens and the countryside will have been very thankful for the weekend watering as the week ahead is not looking as good for them as it is for you.  As some parents may have an extra day off today we thought that we wouldn't overload you since you may have other plans of your own.  Therefore if you haven't time don't worry as this activity can be completed any time.

Handwriting

Learning to form letters and numbers correctly is an important part of handwriting, however sometimes children don't have the mental energy left for creative writing and answering questions if they are thinking too much about it.  Therefore today we thought your children might like to practise some more isolated letter and number formation.

*Can you encourage your child to write their name correctly using correct formation.  If they can write their first name correctly can they write their surname correctly?

*Can they write other names correctly of people in their family who are important to them?

It is worth remembering that once your children can form their letters and numbers correctly it frees their brains up for higher level thinking skills!

Here are some letter worksheets for you:
