Flowers!

Hello 1S,

We hope that you are having a good week so far!

Which flower did you choose? 

Which flower is your favourite?

What colour is the sunflower?

What colour are leaves?

 

Watch the plants grow and turn into flowers!

 

Here are some instructions to help you plant your seeds that were delivered in your packs. 

Make sure you wash your hands after planting your seeds.

Have fun watching your seeds grow into a lovely flower.

 

 

** Challenge**

You could print the instructions and cut them up so that each step is individual.

Can you remember what you had to do first?

Can you put the steps in order?

If an adult reads the instruction, can you find the matching picture? 

 

 

One of friends at Ladywood has already planted his sunflower seeds and look what has happened!

We would love to see your pictures as your sunflowers start to grow. Please send them to beech@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk

It looks like our friend has really enjoyed exploring the trees and flowers whilst out walking!

 

 

Can you label the parts of the flower?

We’re Going on a Tree Hunt!

Hello 1S!

We hope that you all enjoyed having a topic pack delivered on Monday!

It was lovely to say hello to you even though it was from a distance. 

This week, we are going to explore some different trees. 

Here are some symbols that may help to support communication at home:

The tree has no leaves, can you draw the leaves on the branches? You could use paint on your finger to print the leaves on the branches. 

 

 

 

Where will you find a tree?

We hope you enjoyed exploring trees!

It would be lovely to see you exploring trees at home.

Please send your pictures to beech@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk

If you enjoyed this, you might want have a look on you tube at a waterfall, a lake or even a river.

Can you move fast like a river?

Can you stay very still like a lake?

 

Have a lovely day!

Who Am I?

Hello 1S! 

On Monday, we explored what we look like. 

 

Today, we are going to look at our interests and the concept of making choices. It would be great if we could share your pictures with the whole class of you exploring your likes and dislikes. This is a great way to support the understanding of our similarities and our differences.

In the video, you will see some of the things I like and some of the things I don’t like.

What does Danielle like?

What does Danielle not like?

What do you like?

What do you not like?

Can you sort the symbols into things that you like and don’t like? 

You may choose to print the ‘I like it’ and ‘I don’t like’ symbols then use real objects if you feel it is more appropriate. 

 

We make choices everyday!

This morning, I chose which top to wear.

Which colour did Danielle choose?

Who am I?

Hello 1S!

This week, we are going to be learning about ourselves. We will explore our appearance, interests, likes and dislikes and we will have a go at making choices. 

 

Exploring our Appearance

You may want to print this template out and insert your picture. Use a mirror to help you explore your appearance.

Can you find your nose?

What colour is your hair?

How many eyes do you have? 

 

Can you draw the eyes and nose on the face?

You could have a go at cutting out some face features from magazines or newspapers and then sticking them on the faces. 

Please send your pictures to beech@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk.

Exploring our Environment

Hello 1S!

Have you been spending time outdoors?

When you are out on a walk or playing in the garden, what can you see?  

 

Did you see anything else that was exciting?

 

Exploring Colours at Home

Can you find something in your home to match the colours? 

You can send your pictures to beech@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk

 

Have a lovely weekend!

My Friends and I

Hello 1S!

We hope you have had a lovely week in the sunshine! 

 

This half term, our topic is called ‘My Friends and I’.

 

My Magical Garden

We are going to look at the book, ‘My Magical Garden’, over the next 7 weeks. By the end of the 7 weeks, we will have created our own small garden. You may want to make your very own garden at home. It is very important that YOU choose what your garden looks like. I have used a box but you could use a bucket or a large bowl. 

 

 

Where is Danielle?

What colour does Danielle like?
