Hello I hope you are all keeping well?

What another beautifully sunny day it was yesterday! I hope you can spend some time in an outside space? With this in mind here are some activities you may like to try outside:

Chalking on the floor

Painting with water maybe make your own brushes from pegs!

Play memory games eg. 4 cups of different colours hide an item under each cup can you remember what is hidden under each cup? 

We have enjoyed singing “In the hairy scary castle” this half term. Use the you tube clip and teach your family the song with actions I think the clip sung by Pauline Willoughby and/or Dany Rosevear are very good.

Enjoy listening to story tellers telling our stories of this term:

     The Gingerbread man: you tube told by Tony Wilson

 

  The 3 little pigs

Easter Holiday activities

 

Make Easter eggs to hide around your house:  draw egg shapes and then decorate using handwriting patterns: zig,zag,circles, stripes,waves,swirls spend time to colour in each egg around your pattern cut out and hide for you and your family to find!

         Our new story for after Easter is “The Enormous Turnip”

( find a version of this story to enjoy)

Keep going with the letter writing practice on the whiteboards, read your Bug club books, keep counting, and match lower case letters with upper case ones!

Have fun this Easter and we will see you after the Easter weekend

Keep safe

Mrs Penn, Mrs Coleman and Mrs Heap

COVID 19 – TRAVEL ABROAD DURING THE EASTER BREAK 

Most recent guidance from the Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO) advises that British nationals should avoid all non-essential foreign travel for the next 30 days. With this in mind we would ask that notify us should you choose to travel abroad during the Easter break in order that we can ensure that the necessary precautions are taken upon your return.

COVID 19 – THANK-YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND PATIENCE

Thank-you for your continued understanding and patience this week – these are genuinely unprecedented times and as a school we are keen to do our best for the community we serve but need to balance this with the consideration of the safety and welfare of everyone working in the school. We are grateful for the way in which people have waited for us to share our responses to the ongoing changes. Be assured we will always seek to keep you in the picture as developments occur and be here when we can.

Cress Planting and Cheese Tasting

We followed instructions of how to decorate our own pots and then plant our own cress hair!

Jane then returned in the afternoon to support us as we followed  a question posed by a group who had been painting together the day before. The question was, What does goats cheese taste like? What about sheeps cheese? How does that taste? Can you get rainbow cheese? Can you get cheese with fruit in it? You can get smelly cheese. How does that taste?          Goats cheese ” It smells like ice-cream” Smelly cheese( Blue cheese) “ERR Yuck” was the first response! Then three children tasted this blue cheese, they ate a whole chunk before pulling a face! Next Week we are going to make mini pizzas with our outright winner of the taste test…Red Leicester Cheese!
