Are we ready to get moving again 2B? In class, we love to ‘Squiggle while we Wiggle’ to help us with our writing, pencil control and coordination.
You will need:
You can use any small piece of material as a ‘flipper flapper’ like a pillow case, tea towel, scarf or t-shirt!
Let’s get ready to Squiggle! First up, it is our horizontal and vertical lines and circular movements.
Now it’s time to do the same on paper.
A super job! Now let’s try our curved ‘m’ and ‘w’ movements.
How about the same on paper.
Super squiggling 2B.
Now that your hands and arms are feeling nice and warm, there is an English based learning sheet in your “Super Me! Home-learning” booklets to have a go at. It might look something like this (you will find it after the page on ‘heavy’)….
This afternoon we are going to make our own music instruments ready for our live music lesson on Friday (so keep your instrument safe!)
You can choose whatever type of instrument you like. You might want to shake it, hit it, tap it or scrape it.
Feel free to be ask creative as you can!!!!
Rachel has made a shaker at home.
If you want to, you could follow Rachel’s instructions or make something totally different.
If you are making a shaker….
1. Collect everything you will need to make your instrument.
You will need;
Here is what Rachel used….
You could choose any type of container.
You could think about the size of your instrument.
Will it be big or small?
2. Decorate your container using glue and different craft materials (you will find some different craft materials in your home-learning packs).
You could choose to make it Superhero themed if you would like to.
You could use;
3. Add something into your container to make a noise.
Rachel has used pasta, but you could use;
CHALLENGE: Does changing the item you add make different noises? Which makes the loudest noise? Which makes the quietest noise?
Which is your favourite?
4. Add a lid to your container and your instrument is ready to play.
5. Have fun playing your instrument.
Can you make different noises with your instrument?
There is a supporting learning sheet in your “Super Me! Home-learning” booklet where you can share your thoughts and opinions about making an instrument.
Don’t forget that you can show us a picture or video of your finished instrument via Class Dojo or using our class email:
Good Afternoon Superheroes!
Who is ready for some Superhero training??
You could jump over obstacles, crawl on the floor, run or walk or different patterns on the floor, hop on the spot….. the list goes on.
Why not take a photo or video of your finished assault course and send it to us?
If you don’t want to make an assault course, you could try some calming Superhero yoga…
There is a supporting learning sheet in your “Super Me! Home-learning” booklet, where you can share you thoughts about our PE lesson.
Feel free to share your photos or videos with us via Class Dojo or using our class email; firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s time to go to the……
It is time to grab your playdoh (don’t worry if you’ve misplaced yours-there is a recipe below) and get ready for some fun at the disco!
You can listen to my song on the video or choose your favourite music to play whilst your fingers dance at the disco.
If (like me) you are short on playdoh- here is a simple recipe to make some.
You will need:
1. Add 2 cups of plain flour to the bowl
2. Add 1 cup of water
3. Add 1 tbsp (tablespoon) of cooking oil- I have found that vegetable works best but any will work.
4. Add 2 tsp (teaspoons)/ sachets of Cream of Tartar (this is optional but the dough seems to last longer).
5. Add half a cup of salt.
If you want to make coloured playdoh and are using food colouring- add to the bowl now.
6. Mix everything together to make a dough.
If it seems a little sticky add more flour until it is the right consistency.
7. Lightly flour a surface and knead your playdoh until it has a soft, squashy consistency.
If you don’t have any food colouring, you can add acrylic based paint to your dough at this point to add colour.
8. Your playdoh is ready to go! Store it in an air-tight container somewhere cool and dry.
Going to the Dough Disco…..
There are 2 learning sheets to have a go at this afternoon in your “Super Me! Home-learning” booklet:
Page 11- Dough Disco
Here you can use your Pupil voice and say what you thought about Dough Disco.
Parents and carers- you can write a comment about your child’s learning if you would like to (on the positive comment line) and can add something to improve on next time (in the Next Steps box).
Page 12- Writing learning
Have a go at your individual Writing learning activity- it might look something like this. Parents and carers- you can write a comment about your child’s learning if you would like to (on the positive comment line) and can add something to improve on next time (in the Next Steps box).
We would love to see any photos or videos of your time at the Dough Disco or your writing learning!
If you would like to show us, send them to us via Class Dojo or using our class email address:
Good Afternoon 2B.
We hope you enjoyed our “Supertato” story this morning.
Here is a video if you would like to listen to the story again…
Sarah enjoyed our story so much, that she has made her own Supertato character at home.
Follow her instructions to make one for yourself (everything you need is in your “Supertato” making kit)
1. Take everything out of your “Supertato” kit.
You should have:
2. Stick 2 eyes onto 1 black band to make Supertato’s mask
3. Wrap the mask around your potato near the top and glue together.
4. Wrap the other black band around the middle of your potato and glue to make his belt.
5. Glue the back of your potato and add on his red cape.
6. Your Supertato charcter is ready for decorating!
You could draw a mouth, add a buckle to his belt, could decorate his cape, add arms or legs- it is up to you.
There is a page in your “Super Me! Home-learning” booklet to support this activity.
You can share your thoughts about our story, there is a picture to guide you when making your character and you could even write a phrase or sentence about your character when you have made him!
Parents and Carers- there is a space for you to write a short comment and add something that your child might work on next time they complete a similar activity. This is completely optional but if you would like to complete this and would like some support with the type of comments you could add please let us know.
We would love to see some of your finished Supertato characters!
Don’t forget, you can send photos/ videos via Class Dojo or to our class email address if you would like.
We are looking forward to seeing you all again on Monday.
Stay safe and have a lovely weekend!
