Well done everyone for the Spring Term! Over the last three weeks the children have settled in really well and have been working hard on everything from turn taking, building with our new construction toys, maths, phonics to art work on Piet Mondrian and making some super clay models. These will be fired in the kiln over the holiday. It would be useful to keep our skills in phonics, reading, counting in maths and saying one more and one less than a given number ticking over during the Easter holidays. Below are some other suggestions to keep you busy!
We wish you a lovely Easter!
from the Foundation Team.
1)Use your login for Espresso that was emailed out.
Please avoid 'Dinosaurs' as this is our topic after the Easter holiday.
Foundation, then select Understanding the world, -Easter -Watch the 'Easter Celebration' video and 'Easter Eggs' video. Can you decorate an egg? Don't forget to send in your photo for the gallery! Can you complete 'Easter blending' with Polly in 'activities' and 'counting easter eggs?' Again there are printable resources and books.
5) Explore the outside at night! Just before bedtime/dusk. Go outside and wait...Can you hear an owl hooting? Can you see a bat flying over head? Can you hear the rustling of a hedgehog? Or catch the glisp of an urban fox? How is the night air different? In the morning, you might want to talk about why we have day and night. Below is a video link, you may wish to only watch the first part or you may wish to talk about why we have seasons too.
6) Perfect time to learn a new skill. Whether you are passing down a skill you have or learning a new one together. It's the perfect time to master something new. After all you have the time! You may teach/learn how to cook, sew, knit, tie shoelaces, hoover, photography, a new language, dj (free djay app by Algoriddim), film making, dance and many many more. Some possible links:
NB: These are suggestions, they are not recommendations!
7) How about a spot of Stargazing? Drinking hot chocolate (with marshmallows optional!) and wrapping up under a blanket. You might need to prep before hand so you can talk about the stars and perhaps even tell a bedtime story behind the constellation's names.
