W/C 1.6.20

Hi everyone, I hope you are all ok! As I'm sure you are aware, we are back open again from tomorrow for Year 1 and reception children as well as for some other children. As parents I understand you have had an extremely difficult decision to make and if you decide not to send your child back to school, that is totally understandable and entirely your choice. For those children not coming back to school, activities will still be set. As a school, we have been in discussion about work and we have decided it would be a nice idea for the children at home to be doing the same as the children in school. Under the circumstances, 'teaching' as such, will be different. 

 

In Class 1, we have decided to change the children's work theme to Summer and a lot of our activities are outdoors. Over the next few weeks, we are going to be doing '30 days of wilderness' (some of the older children may remember this as they all thoroughly enjoyed it!)  which has lots of lovely activities that will get children up, out and having fun. 
 

I will attach photos of what we have been up to every day! 

 

Remember, you can always contact me with any problems/ questions/ updates if you have any and I'll reply as quick as I can smiley

 


BBC Bitesize are creating daily lessons/ activities for children of different ages covering different topics- this may be worth a look if you are wanting a bit more. 
 

Monday - Day 1 of 30 days of Wilderness! 

 

Our first activity of 30 days of Wilderness is - 'Feel the wild between your toes' - this could be taking your shoes off on sand, mud, grass etc.

 

Reception

Once the children have done this, I would like them to write about their experience, what did they stand on, what could they feel? Did they like it? 

 

Year 1

Once the children have completed this, I would like them to write about their experience using adjectives, describe it to me, what did you stand on? What did it feel like? Could you hear anything? What could you hear? Write these in sentences using exciting adjectives and extending your sentences.  

 

We are also going to be doing an activity on Symmetry. The activity is explained below with instructions. The children may need a bit of an explanation about how you don’t need to do both sides of the paper because they need to be exactly the same etc. 

 

 

 

 

Tuesday - Day 2 of 30 days of Wilderness! 

 

Our second challenge of 30 days of Wilderness is 'Look up at the clouds, what can you see?' - Lie flat on the ground, look carefully at the clouds, what things can you see? Maybe a dog? Maybe a rocket?

 

Reception

Once the children have done this, I would like them to write about their experience, where did you go to look at the clouds? What could you see? you could draw pictures to match or take photos - write a couple of sentences explaining what you could see. 

 

Year 1

Once the children have completed this, I would like them to write about their experience in sentences. What did you lie on? What could you see? What did it look like? Explain what you did and what you saw - you could draw pictures to match your writing. 

 

We are also going to be doing an activity which stops birds from flying into the windows. The instructions and explanation is below. 

I have also set some Doodle Maths challenges too. 

 

 

Wednesday - Day 3 of 30 days of Wilderness! 

 

Our third challenge of 30 days of Wilderness is 'Find a creepy crawly, watch the way it moves - You may need a magnifying glass for this one! 

 

Reception

Once the children have done this, I would like them to write about their experience, which creepy crawly did you find? Where did you find it? What does it look like? Write in a couple of sentences and draw a picture to go with your writing. 

 

Year 1

Once the children have completed this, I would like them to write about their experience in sentences. What did you find? Where did you find it? What does it look like? How does it move? Describe it to me using lots of adjectives! You could draw a picture and label it too. 

 

We are also going to be doing a number hunt (the fairy doors in our woods at school have different numbers on to find) we are going to extend this by asking which number is one more/ one less than the one found - you could do this activity using just paper to hide the numbers or you could make it more interesting by using something like twigs/ natural resources with numbers on perhaps? 

 

There is also another activity we have planned which is making a 'nature bracelet'. This is where you get some masking tape and make it slightly bigger than the size of the wrist (so the bracelet comes off easily). But the masking tape must be the other way up so the non- sticky side is in touch with the skin on the wrist. Then you need to go outside and find lots of lovely natural resources like flowers, leaves etc. to stick on your bracelet (hence the sticky side of the tape needing to be facing outwards). I have attached photos of a 'nature bracelet' I made earlier to demonstrate. 

 

 

Thursday - Day 4 of 30 days of Wilderness! 

 

Our fourth challenge of 30 days of Wilderness is 'Showcase nature' - Go on a nature hunt and pick up lots of lovely nature resources like feathers, fossils etc. Showcase the natural items to an adult, what have you found?

Reception

Once the children have done this, I would like them to talk about their experience, what have you found? Why do you think it is worth showcasing - you could take photos of your items if you want to. 

 

Year 1

Once the children have done this, I would like them to talk about their experience, what have you found? Why do you think it is worth showcasing -you could take photos of your items if you want to. 

 

We are also going to be doing a one more/ one less activity. Give the children some numbers to 10/20 and ask them to write a number that is one more and one less than the number given and I have set some doodle maths challenges. 

 

There is also another activity we have planned which is making a 'twig owl', you will need a cardboard template of an owl and you stick twigs on the template to make the owl - this is an example of a twig owl below. 

 

Finally, we are going to be doing some animal yoga. Below are some examples of postures you can do.
