Good morning everybody, I hope you had a good weekend.
Did anyone have a go at the RSPB Garden Birdwatch at all? I must say that my husband and I got quite hooked on it just through looking out the living room window most of the time. We saw goldfinches (massive flocks of 15+), robins, sparrows, blue tits, blackbirds, pigeons, a great tit, a coal tit and a green finch and so clearly though the binoculars. If you didn't do it, why not have a little look through a window for 10 minutes and see what you can see. I must say that ours were all swarming around the sunflower seeds we had hanging in bird feeders. At school, we only managed to see a couple of blue tits, a blackbird, a robin and a pigeon this year whereas usually we see lots of rooks or jackdaws but they were just not around on Friday. I think we might have another little look during the week to see if we see different amounts and different birds. If we are lucky, we might see a woodpecker like Lily.
We have another Zoom meeting at 11.30 this morning so hope to see you there.
Letters and Sounds
Practise your sounds by singing the Jolly Phonics songs. If you just want to practise the digraphs, start at 7 mins, 15 secs.
Let's start the session off with a story about an elephant and a baby who keep taking pairs of things without asking!
Click on the video below to play a ladybird pairs game. Find the two ladybirds whose total number of spots on their wings match. Then print off the activity to the side of the video to play the pairs game with someone in your family.
Today we are going to practise the letter b for boot. This is a letter where we start at the top of the boot, go down to the heel and back up half way and around the toe. Do either one or two lines of the b on the tracing sheet and try writing 3 on your own.
I Can book
This week you are going to make a book all about what you can do. Watch the video to find out more. You will need a piece of blank A4 paper.
Story Telling - The Three Billy Goats Gruff
We are going to be working on a new story this week about the Three Billy Goats Gruff . First we're going to sing a song and then listen to the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff
My All About Me Book
I thought you could use some time this afternoon to add some more things to your All About Me book, or even take some time to start it if you never got that far. Have a look through some of those photos that you have sent to me and maybe print some off and add to your book. You might want to add some of your thoughts about how you feel at the moment with this new type of school and how you feel everything is going.
Cooking with Miss Newton
This week we are going to make Jack and the beanstalk themed cupcakes. Here are things that you will need:
I look forward to making them with you and seeing what yours will look like. You may be able to do this task more independently and not need too much support from an adult. See how you get on and ask for help if you need it.
