Thursday’s Learning Suggestion – Plastic Bottle Bird Feeder

Good Morning everybody,
 
The beautiful sunshine has been smiling at us this week, and after spending lots of time outdoors, I thought you might like to create a bird feeder. This will give you something wonderful to watch, as you look out of your window, or eat your lunch in the garden.
 
This bird feeder is very simple to create, and requires few materials. It also allows us to do some recycling: using any plastic bottles that are around the home. 
 
 
Here is the link to the video, which explains how to make the feeder, and exactly what you need. 
 
I have also included a written document, as you may find this easier to follow. 
 
 
Send us pictures of your bird feeders, and see if you can capture any birds in action. 
 
Have a wonderful day,
 
See you at story time 😄

Who’s Poo? A Suggestion for Learning. Monday 25th of May

The weather is looking fine and many of you will be out in the garden. You may be able to see signs of wildlife where you live. One clue that something is living nearby is that itt might leave poo.All animals need food and water. All animals move and breathe. All animals excrete. That’s a cool science word for poo and wee.

Take a look at these fantastic links and take a closer look at poo. We can learn so much.

And a few you will not find in your back garden.

If you are interested then think about the language used to group and classify animals.
Can you find out what each of these words mean?
Omnivore
Herbivore
Carnivore
On the Plop Trump cards there is are symbols in the top corner( a leaf and a steak)
What do they mean?

Find out about the diet of an animal that interests you. The Dung Beetle really fascinates me.

Keep your eyes open for any evidence of wildlife when you are out and about.
Look. Don’t touch

Use your phonics to read the Plop Trump cards.
The photos are not to scale-look carefully at measurements. I suggest that you look at a ruler to check just how big the elephant poo is!

Happy Learning

Hello Learners – Thursday 14th May

Good morning everyone,

 

I hope you are all ok. The sun is shining today!

Todays suggested learning on Tapestry today is as follows;-

In Maths, we will be finding a quarter of a number today. Using the same activity as Monday we will split the objects into 4 equal groups today!

In English, we will used the colour information we gathered yesterday to write a colour acrostic poem. There are easier and harder options to try! Don’t rush this is will take some thought!

In phonics today we will look at the split diagraph o-e, as in the words home, nose and cone.

Let’s do some PE today as the sun is shining! Let’s practise our throwing and catching skills! You can use a ball, an apple, a teddy or a rolled up pair of socks! There are some video clips to practise throwing techniques or just to play some fun games! Enjoy!

It is lovely to hear from you whether you are doing these activities or creating your own!

Please keep in touch! (keep smiling)

Best wishes, 

Mrs Brown

 

It’s Wednesday – 13th May

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are al ok today!

Today’s suggested learning – details on tapestry – is as follows:-

In Maths today, we are are going to test our skills of how well we can spot a half! We should be experts by now! Remember a shape needs 2 EQUAL parts to be in half!

In English, we are collecting some colour information, in order to write our Acrostic Colour Poems tomorrow! I think you will enjoy this task today!

In Phonics, we will carry on with split diagraphs and focus on the i-e sound – there’s a fun sound spotting activity to do!

Last week in Geography, we researched continents and found out all about them. Today, we will investigate oceans – see if you can answer Mrs Brown’s questions about oceans today!

I think the weather is set to improve soon and the warm sun will return! 

In the meantime, keep busy and keep being kind to each other and keep smiling 🙂

I am missing you all,

Best wishes,

Mrs Brown
