How are you all? Thank you for letting us know what you have been up to on Tapestry – it makes us so happy to see your happy faces too! We have included some photographs to show you what we have been up to.
We hope you are enjoying the activities given to you. I enjoyed listening to Mrs Adams reading ‘Duck in the Truck’ (on Tapestry). What a cheeky duck… leaving the frog, the goat and the sheep stuck in the muck!
Have you been practising your rhyming words? Can you guess the word?
Clue 1: It is an animal with a bushy tail.
Clue 2: It rhymes with box.
We are sure you are all being good for your parents and helping them do little jobs around the house. Try and teach them some of the songs we sing in nursery!
Have a lovely Easter and we will be in touch soon.
It has been lovely to see all of your hard work on Tapestry this week. (If you would like me to share any of your Tapestry pictures on a ‘Celebration of Learning’ blog post please email me or comment on your Tapestry observation to let me know.)
This week I have been doing lots of indoor activities, just like you! My fluffy penguin called Percy has been keeping me company. Here is a picture of me and Percy finishing our puzzle.
I hope that you are all well and are enjoying your home learning activities.
During Easter, many Christians enjoy eating a special food
called a ‘hot cross bun’. A hot cross bun is a spiced sweet bun made with
currants or raisins, marked with a cross on the top, and traditionally eaten on
Good Friday. The eating of hot cross buns marks the end of Lent because they
are made with dairy products which are forbidden during this period. Plain buns
are traditionally eaten hot or toasted during Lent, beginning on Shrove Tuesday
and through to Good Friday.
Can you think
of any foods that you may eat on special occasions? Can you cook or bake this
with your grown up?
If you would
like to bake a hot cross, you may like to use this recipe.
Whilst you are at home, we would like you to complete a DT
project which includes a cooking task (with the help of an adult), playing a
matching game and keeping a Breakfast diary for a week to record all the
healthy options you enjoy!
You will be cooking ‘Tasty toast’ and exploring different healthy toppings for them. (We are aware that some ingredients may be harder to come by at the moment, so alternatives have been suggested to help you if needed.)
You will try different cooking
techniques to create your yummy, healthy toast before tasting and discussing
there is a breakfast game to play. Use the cards blow to help you. First cut
the cards out and discuss the different types of healthy breakfast. Why is
breakfast so important? What is your favourite choice?
Lay the cards on a table face down. Take it in turns to turn over 2 cards and see if they match. If they do you collect those cards; if they don’t, turn them over again and the next person tries to find a match. The winner is the person with the most pairs.
Lastly, use the sheet below to record what you have every day for a week. Draw a picture of your breakfast on the sheet for your Home Learning book or draw a table straight into your book. Can you add the name of your foods?
Picture news is a resource that we use weekly which provides opportunities for children to learn about our world and topics in the current news. Each week, we will post a picture news poster for you to discuss with your child. There are also some suggested home learning activities that you may wish to complete with your child. Please see this week’s poster. Attached are home learning challenges, a recording sheet and British values links.
Hello all multilingual speakers! We are very sad that school is closed at the moment and are missing you all. While you are at home, make sure you do lots of reading in both your home language and in English.
If you are looking for ways to continue to improve your English, there are lots of games and activities on the website below:
I have attached a range of activities for you to try this week. Please let us know what you do – you can share a photo on ‘Tapestry’ or email Mrs Farrant.
Please look at your tapestry accounts- Mrs Adams has posted a video of her reading ‘Shark in the Park’! Let us know if you have any trouble viewing it. She will also read next week’s story ‘Duck in the Truck’ in a few days!
weather is changing! As we move further into Spring you may have noticed it is
sunnier, warmer and there are flowers beginning to grow all around us. Your art
project is to find and create some of the beautiful plants that are beginning
to bud and flower. Can you see any trees growing blossom? Have you seen any
daffodils on your walk? If you haven’t been able to get a glance at these
things over the past few weeks, why not take a tour of Kew gardens online for
some inspiration! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioG_Vfh0Kxw
