Hello class blue, I hope your are all keeping well! I hope you enjoyed last weeks school baking activity, this weeks activity is ‘Gardening Week.’ I’m sure a lot of you have already been spending lots of time in the garden but now we are inviting you to show off what you can do in the garden! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a look at the following PowerPoint ‘Summer – What can you see?’ Can you guess what you can see through the binoculars? Use some of these ideas to help you write/draw what you can see in Summer using hand over hand, tracing. You can use some of the words from the Summer word mat, draw some pictures of what you like to do during the Summer or cut and stick some pictures of what you see in Summer from magazines or newspapers.
Colour Recognition – Have a look at the attached activity. Ask somebody at home to read the sentence in each box to you and you can then colour the picture to match the sentence.
This I Spy activity is perfect to have a little fun with. Lets see how well you know your letters and sounds, and if you can pick out words beginning with that letter!
This week we will look at Capacity. Capacity is the total amount of fluid that can be contained in a container. It is the word we use when we are measuring liquids.
Discuss the above posters. Can you look around your home to see if you can find some of the instruments we can use to measure capacity? Lets have a look at the cups below. One of the cups is full, one is half full and one is empty. Can you use some cups and water at home to create a full cup, a half full cup and an empty cup.
I would like you to draw and decorate a cup that is full, half full and empty like the example below
Now we are going to see how many cups you can fill with water from a jug
Watch the short video clip below and count how many cups the little boy can fill with liquid from the jugs. Which jug was able to fill the most cups?
This minibeasts video PowerPoint features videos about some of our favourite minibeasts! https://www.twinkl.ie/resource/t-t-5144-minibeasts-videos-powerpoint
Minibeasts live in all sorts of habitats. You will be going on a MINIBEAST HUNT! Many minibeasts prefer dark, damp spots in gardens and woods, so this is a good place to start your hunt. Go out to your garden or ask mum or dad to take you on a walk and list all the minibeasts you can find. Do not forget to
- peek under large stones and logs to find woodland and millipedes
- peer into the cracks in tree bark and deadwood to find beetles and spiders
- poke your nose into long grass to see ants and grasshoppers
- look closely at leaves to discover caterpillars and ladybirds
- keep your eyes peeled after rain – can you spot slugs, snails and worms?
Lots of creepy crawlies live in trees and shrubs. Lay a piece of white cloth, such as an old sheet or pillow case, under a tree or bush and gently shake the branches. You’ll be surprised how many tiny creatures fall out. Remember – bugs are very tiny, so be careful if you pick them up and always put them back where you found them 🙂 Take this minibeast hunt checklist with you!
Theme 10: Grow in Love
Slideshow – Showing Love. Discuss some of the acts of love that we see every day such as sharing in the classroom, families spending time together, or helping a friend in need. Look at the pictures in the slideshow and chat about each of them
This week we will focus on a wellie boot toss for our virtual sports day activity next week. This is lots of fun! 🙂
Create some hairy funny face stress balls that you can use for sensory play. Using coloured balloons, you can make a range of different funny characters
You can experiment with different fillings such as play dough, cornflour, lentils, split peas, rice or fine play sand 🙂
Look at Quicny and the magic instruments below. Can you help him match the instruments and create the band?
Have a lovely week and please email me pictures of your activities this week or if you have any questions. email@example.com
