Water

The next page of opur book is about water;

Lynn has found some water on her walks around Rivington Pike, she took some photos;

Lynn also took some videos;

Listen to the sounds, what does the waterfall sound like? Can you make this noise?

Can you hear the rain in the pond? I can see it splashing!

Who can you see in the pond water?

What noise does he make?

Can you quack like a duck?

 

Maybe you could have a go at exploring some water at home, can you pour it like this?

Enjoy exploring this week!

Song Time

Hello Everyone!

Today I thought I would share Class 1T’s favourite songs to listen to in group.

We really do love a sing song and a dance in our class.

I hope you are all well and safe at home.

Take Care Everyone!

Cloaks

The next page in the ‘My Magical Garden’ book is ‘Cloaks’

To make your own cloak you can use household objects and things you might be able to find around your garden and on your daily exercise!

What colour will it be?

What will you use to decorate it?

 

Lynn has been making her own cloak this week!

First she went looking for things to decorate it with!

What can you see in this picture?

Lynn chose some leaves   and a white pillowcase as her cloak! 

She glued them all down carefully

Wow Lynn, I like it!   Your cloak looks amazing!

How many leaves can you count on Lynn’s cloak? 

Can you make a cloak at home?

We would love to see pictures of your finished cloaks,

you can email them to; maple@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk

Love 1T Team,

Walk

Hello Everyone!

During this time at home we have been enjoying getting outdoors and having a walk. Lynn and I have enjoyed some lovely walks and would like to share our photos with you all. Lynn’s walks have been around the Rivington area and mine have been around the Smithills area.

Lynn’s Rivington Walks!

You could use the communication board to match the photo to the symbol.

Can you count the chickens?

Natalie’s Smithills Walks!

Can you count the ducks?

Can you count the horses?

Maybe you could have a walk and see what you can find.

Can you find a tree?

Can you find a horse?

Can you find a flower?

You could take photos or count how many you can find.

We would love to see what you find on your walks.

Music Session

Hello Everyone!
As I am at home I have had to be a bit creative for today’s music session and use different items for the instruments.

The instruments I am using today are:

Can you find some objects you can use in your house?

Can you make music with your family?

Play along with me in the video.

Challenge:

Can you stop?

Can you go?

Watch the video and look for the symbols to tell you when to stop and when to go.

How to make a shaker!

I hope you have lots of fun making music and enjoy being creative!

Take Care Everyone!

Enjoy The Outdoors and Get Creative!

Hello 1T

My daughters and I went on a long walk today collecting leaves, flowers and sticks.

We were inspired by the artist Andy Goldsworthy, who uses natural items to produce his art work. Here are some examples of his work.

We made a rainbow using the items we found on our walk.

What colours can you see in our rainbow?

Can you collect some leaves and flowers and make a rainbow?

What colours can you find?

We also made some animal faces from our story Handas Surprise. This was very tricky!

Can you guess which one is a monkey?

Which one is the zebra?

Can you make some animals from what you find in your garden or on a walk?

Maybe you would like to create a lovely collage instead?

You can send your creations to maple@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk

Lynn has also been busy getting creative and made Handa’s basket full of fruit from the story. Lynn used paints and paper to create her artwork.

Have fun and be as creative as you want! We look forward to seeing your amazing creations!
