This week our learning activities are all based around the story Arabella Miller’s Tiny Caterpillar. We can’t wait to see which three learning activities you chose to share on Tapestry.
Norfolk and Waveney are marking ‘Mental Health Awareness week’ by celebrating all things kind at their virtual ‘Festival of Kindness’. From the 18th- 24th of May their social media will be filled with events- music- talks- activities for families and well-being advice.
They would love to hear about kind things that have happened to you that we can all celebrate. It could be the smallest gesture that made a huge difference, something you have remembered for a long time or something that happened very recently.
Maybe you or your family could submit a poem, artwork or photo around the theme of kindness?
Maybe you want to send a shout out to someone who is particularly kind or someone that you want to make smile?
Send them a message via social media or email email@example.com
Find out more information on their website, here.
This week our story is ‘A Squash and a Squeeze.’ Miss Wright needs to find a container that will hold more food for the old lady’s animals. Can you count with Miss Wright? Which container holds more?
Can you try this at home? You will need some different containers and food such as pasta or rice. See if you can write the number using our number rhymes- for example “down across then down some more, that’s the way we make a 4!”
Charlie Challenge- let’s estimate how many cups of food we will need to fill the container. This means that we need to look at the container and guess a number before we find out the answer! Was your estimation correct?
We’d love to see some of your pictures on Tapestry!
Today’s activity is one to help you get your hands nice and strong. You can use the play dough that you made on Monday, but don’t worry if you haven’t got any, there are other things you can use.
Listen to Mrs. Sheppard as she reads a story all about feelings. The book describes and explores the many feelings children experience in their life.
Join Mrs Spicker and Sweep to do some maths. You will need a teddy or puppet, some counters and a pen/pencil and some paper. You could use raisins, pieces of fruit, pieces of cereal etc. I have used chocolate hoops.
Join Mrs Spicker to have a go at some homemade Batik art.
Have a look around you while out and about for your daily exercise. What different houses can you see? Do they look the same? When you get back, have a look at your home. Does it look like the others you have seen?
Can you follow Miss Wright’s instructions to make a junk model of your home? You could use recycled boxes, wrapping paper, tubes, bubble wrap or anything else you can find!
We’d love to see your creations on Tapestry!
Have fun 🙂
