Welcome to the start of a new week. Here are some new learning activities that you can do at home, we might add a few more activities in the week too. Last week we had some lovely emails, photos and messages; we would love to see what you are doing this week so please email us or message us on Db Primary.
Have a lovely week
Here is a story about little bear that children might like to watch to help them to understand coronavirus. It might help if they are feeling worried or anxious.
Here is another story about Small Paul (on coronavirus) that parents might like to share with their child too.
Mrs Warwick very kindly took our seeds home to look after (if you were not in, in the last week Mrs Warwick has your pea!) We planted other seeds too: strawberries, peppers and broad beans. Look how well they are growing, you can see the shoots are starting to grow and I can see a few leaves too. Mrs Warwick has put them in a sunny spot and remembered to water them too. How tall is your pea? Does it have any leaves yet? I wonder why Mrs Warwick put the seeds in a sunny spot? Why do plants need water?
Some nice ideas for Easter craft using egg boxes (if you have any!)
Mrs BC liked this idea of creating smaller areas inside your house into places of learning and play. You could create different areas for different purposes, e.g. a cosy nook to allow some calm reading time, a role play area. These areas mimic the areas for play that we set up for the children in school.
Here is my daughter (Tilly). She used the back of a cereal packet to write numbers 1-20. She then cut them up, muddled them and placed them back in the correct order. Can you do this activity? You could challenge yourself by using numbers from 20-30 or counting in 2's.
Phonics - zz, qu and ch
How to make a caterpillar!!
Welcome to our special guest Miss Olney who is going to do some art and craft with us!
Here is a video clip of how to make your own very hungry caterpillar. You can race your caterpillar with your family when you are finished!
Jasper (my pet dog) watched me practice phonics today. I thoughts of some words with zz, qu and ch in and then put the words in sentences.
2D and 3D shapes around my house
Here are some 2D and 3D shapes I found in my house. The clock is a 2D flat shape. It is a circle, it has 1 side and no corners and the side is curved. My son Henry has a football game. It is a 3D solid shape. It is a cube. It has 6 faces and they are all squares.
Please note that the phonics: 'zz, qu and ch' and 'tricky words' videos are now on the website in the videos section (below). There is also a introduction to a cosmic yoga website which your child might enjoy for some indoor physical activity.
