Monday 4th May

Good Morning Class One and Class One parents!
I hope you had a fantastic weekend!

We are now into week seven and I have to say that I am completely in awe of your effort, commitment and perseverence in continuing to support your children's learning - This is no easy job! I think you and the children have all earnt yourselves a huge pat on the back! 

Here is some of the children's Wonderful Work from last week! 

Class One, I can't wait to hear your news and see some more amazing work! This week is all about learning about the environment and how to look after our planet.

Look! I have found a fun song for us to join in with. Cartoon Astronaut Helmet Images, Stock Photos & Vectors | ShutterstockWitch Hat Images, Stock Photos & Vectors | Shutterstock

 Isaac Boo has made a book all about birds. Fantastic work!    

  Max has made a fabulous book about his guinea pigs!    


Perhaps today you would like to Make a Tricky Word Wheel,
like Max has, to go outside your bedroom as a password!
←Our project this week is all about looking after our planet.
Talk to your grown-up about what we can do at the look after our planet. 
Make some signs to put up around the house and outside, to remind your family, (e.g. "Do not put plastic pots in the bin!" or "Go for a walk. Do go in the car!" etc..)


Perhaps today you could Play 'Hide and Seek' to practise your counting to 20? 

This week's project is all about learning about the environment.Create a daily weather chart.  Record what you find out using pictures and written labels.  How has the weather changed over the week? If it is raining, leave a container outside to collect the rain e.g. a water bottle with the funnel cut off. Draw a line or make a mark to show where the rain came up to use a ruler to measure. Repeat overnight or the next day and compare your results.
You could use our Days of the Week song to help you to write out your chart:

Here are some projects for this week:

The project this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more about the environment. Learning may focus on changes to different environments, the impact of humans on environments, climate change etc .

Recycling/ Exploring Materials
Provide your child with a selection of packaging to sort into groups to recycle. Can they identify plastic, paper, card, metal. 

Create your own rain cloud
Use a plastic container with a lid (e.g. a water bottle) and make small holes on one side. You could stick on cotton wool to decorate. Fill the container with water and watch as the water drips out

Weather sounds (Rainmakers)
Provide your child with either a plastic container, bottle or other junk modelling item. Pour in a spoon or two of rice or lentils and secure with a bottle lid or sellotape. Decorate with stickers, glitter and sequins if you have them available. Have fun exploring making rain sounds. 

Watch the ‘Frozen' song, 'In Summer’. Discuss with your child what they think will happen to Olaf when it gets warm. Support your child to fill up ice cube trays or plastic containers, if ice cube trays are not available, and freeze. Once frozen, take them out and explore how quickly they melt: in your hands, in the fridge, on the windowsill and when blown with the hairdryer. Make some ice-lollies.

Search on Google Maps for the UK. Discuss with your child the colour of the land and sea. Scroll up to look at the Arctic. Discuss why the land looks different in the Arctic, because the land is covered in ice and snow. Discuss the differences in temperature in the UK and the Arctic. Look at a picture of an igloo on google. Fill an ice cube tray with water and when frozen take out and support your child to create their own igloo out of the ice cubes.

Have a lovely day today and remember to look after one another.
