Below is a video which explains how to log into and use Bug Club to read books with your child electronically.  Please take advantage of this really great resource and enjoy reading most days with your child - five or so minutes is enough time for the majority of children in this early stage of their reading journey.   Below the video is a link to a sheet with login details.  If your child has a hyphenated surname, please just write the two names in the surname without the hyphen.

Bat Learns To Dance Story Telling Activities

Have a jolly time singing Incy Wincy Spider and the Bat Learns to Dance song.  Then step out the story with Adam - lots of fun.

Next week is going to be the Big Garden Bird Watch where you watch and count how many birds come into your garden in an hour.  We have joined in with the Big School Bird Watch in school for the last 3 years so this year you'll need to get ready for it at home.  If you want to see birds in your garden, it's good if you have things that birds like to entice them in.  Watch the video that Mrs Hayward has made which shows you how to make a bird feeder using pine cones and cups.  We always have a lot of fun making the pine cone ones and usually end up really mucky.  In fact there are quite a few empty pine cones hanging on our apple tree in the outside garden and these were originally bird feeders made for a bird watch.  I hope you can make something like this over the next few days.
Finish off the day with a nice story read by Mrs Dawson.  Here she is reading "Room on the Broom" by Julia Donaldson.
