Good morning!

Good Morning! We thought it would be nice to share our morning group routine, starting with our favourite good morning song. The children love to listen, sing and dance along to this song each morning at school so why don’t you start the day with a sing-a-long at home…

We would then sing good morning to our friends. Maybe you could say or sign ‘good morning’ to each other at home.

Celery painting

 

Hi everyone,

As the weather isn’t very nice this week, I thought we could do some indoor activities.

Today I made a fish picture using celery.

For this you will need:

 

First you need to draw a fish on the paper, you can try this yourself or an adult can help you.

Then you can use the celery to print the different colour scales onto your fish, you can do any pattern you like.

Once you have done your picture, maybe you would like to do some dancing. Here is a seaside song I have found:

Here is my little girl Georgia to give you some ideas of the movements you can do.

What did you think of these activities?

 

Under the Sea Counting

Hello everyone! 

I have been doing some counting at home this week. I made an octopus. It has 8 legs! Do you know how many hearts an octopus has? 

Here is how I made it…

1. I used a paper plate, some paints, a sponge, a piece of paper to cut out the legs and some cheerios to stick on the legs. 

2. First of all I cut my paper plate in half and used the sponge to dab on the plate, you can use whatever colours you want. You could use a paint brush or crayons to decorate too. 

3. Next I cut out the legs (you might want to get an adult to help you). I used double sided sticky tape but you could use a glue stick or PVA. I had eight legs and wrote on the numbers 1-8

4. Here is my octopus! I would love to see some pictures of yours. 

Let me know what you think… 

Seaside Sounds

Hello Daisy Class.

Our friend Hannah, from Primrose class, has created a fun ‘sound lotto’ activity that we think you will enjoy. It is a great activity for developing phonics and communication and language skills. 

Watch the video and listen carefully to the different seaside sounds that you can hear. You can use the communication board to help you. 

 

What sounds could you hear?

 

What did you think of the sound lotto activity?

Sensory Story

Hello Daisy Class

As part of our seaside learning we have created a sensory story for you to try at home. Sensory stories are a great way to engage children, teach them new vocabulary and allow them to explore a new topic. They can be really fun and messy so we suggest putting down a sheet of some sort as it’s all about exploring with your senses. Have a look at the video and ideas below and have a go!

Here are some ideas and the things you will need….

We hope you enjoyed the story! 

 

Father’s Day card

Hello everyone!

As it is Father’s Day on Sunday, we would have spent some time this week making cards to send home. I thought I would share with you the card we would have made, so you can make it at home.

You will need:-

First I painted one foot red and printed it onto the card with the toes at the bottom:

We then added foam triangles and stars to create the rocket, adding buttons/sequins for the windows:

Finally I wrote ‘LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK’ to finish off the card:

We would love to see some photos of the cards you make. How about trying some of the following activities too:

Hello Daisy Class

As part of our Seaside learning we thought you might like to create your own sea scene with one of the teachers from Oak Academy. The video will talk you and your parents through the activity and it ends with a song. 

What did you think?
