Mini Beast Hunt - The Land Trust

As the weather is finally looking a little brighter we thought it would be nice to get outside and look for some mini beasts. I know you may have done something similar but with all this wet weather we have had we are sure there will be lots more to find! At the bottom there is a sheet you can use to record what bugs you find and where. Happy hunting!

Today we would like you to think of the word 'symmetry'. Look around and see if you can find anything that is symmetrical. Then make a symmetrical butterfly or pattern. You could use a lego board divided into 2 and put your lego bricks on it so that they make a symmetrical pattern. Maybe you could make a model that is exactly the same on both sides. Sometimes it helps to make a pattern and hold it up to a mirror to see what it would look like whole.

Teddy Tombola 

The school fair inspired this game…TOY TOMBOLA

  1. Write numbers on a bit of paper. Go up to the number you think your child will be able to do confidently. For Ewan I did 1-20.
  2. Cut the numbers up and fold into quarters and pop into a bag or box.
  3. Grab the corresponding number of toys/items. I used Paw Patrol cards and small toys. Lay them out in a line.
  4. The game is pick a “ticket” from the bag and open it (fine motor skills required to unfold the paper – tick!) and then count along the line to see which toy they’ve ‘won’
  5. Put the number next to the toy and choose again until they are all done.

Today we would like you to have a go at making your own wind chime.

There are lots of different types of wind chimes that you could try. You could use  a mixture of natural objects like different shaped twigs, leaves  and human made things like bottle tops, old CDs, spoons, beads, bells  . 

Some wind chimes just look beautiful moving in the wind so think about the colours and shapes you might use. Some make a sound as they move in the wind so if you want to make one of those you need to think about the things you will need that make sounds you like. 

This video clip might help you and at bottom of the page there is an example of how to make one and some ideas for your grown ups.

Today is International Nurses Day.  It celebrates all the hard working nurses around the world. One of the most famous was Florence Nightingale who was born 200 years ago today. One of the things she is is famous for is showing everyone how important it is to make sure everything was kept clean and organised in hospitals. 

Today we would like you to watch some of the nurses at Northampton General Hospital singing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Peq2MJU5t_8

They are all working as part of a team. At school we often talk about working as a part of a team, as part of a class team, in a sports team or a team of people who help us in our school. 

Activities for you to try

  • Think about all the qualities you think a good team needs to have and why sometimes it is better to do something as part of a team rather than on your own.
  • Draw or write about when you have been part of a team.
  • Find out some more information about Florence Nightingale.
  • There are lots of different types of nurses, find out about some of them.
  • Make a International Nurses Celebration Day card.

Monday 11th May

Suggested Activity

We have been thinking about celebrations this weekend so  todays suggested activity is to use the letters in the word       celebrations to make lots of new words.

Writing each letter of the word on to a small piece of paper or use magnetic letters if you have them so that you can keep moving them around to make words might help you. Use your phonics to help you. 

Other challenges

  • Put some of the words you have found in alphabetical order.
  • Use a timer.
  • What is the longest word you can make?
  • Group them according to the phonic patterns you can see.
  • Use some of the words in a sentence, not all the words in the sentence need to be made from 'celebrations'. Say the sentence to someone or get someone to help you write the sentence.

My sentence is           Can you use your brain?  

I wonder how many words you can make?

Suggested Activity

Hopefully from yesterday's activity you have a little more understanding about what VE day is. My Nonna is 95 and remembers the day clearly. I phoned to ask her what happened and she said they had a huge street party and stayed up very late singing songs and playing games. Her strongest memory was of her waving a flag when the news broke that the war was over. 

So I thought it would be lovely if you could make your own union Jack flag out of things you have at home. Be as creative as you can! Nonna said she would love to see some of the flags you have made to put a smile on her face, so if you wanted to email them to Mrs Fox then please do!

Our school value for this half term is Friendship! Which is quite tricky to think about at the moment when we can't see them. I know I miss mine very much but I love speaking to them on the phone or sending them a text. Hopefully it won't be much longer before we are altogether again. 

I would like you to think about one of your friends and create a friendship poster about them. You could draw a picture. then you could write some adjectives around them about why they are good friend. e.g funny, kind, brave etc. 

Please head over to the blog when you have finished your poster to tell me why your friend is so special, if you don't want to tell me their name then that is absolutely fine.

Wet weather designs

You may need some wet weather gear this week. I have a very boring black umbrella because my daughter borrowed my lovely red and white spotted one and has left it at university! So I was thinking about what kind of umbrella I would have if I could design my own. Maybe it would have some special features. Rather like Mary Poppins uses her umbrella to fly over the roof tops.

Have a think and design your own special umbrella or a pair of boots maybe. Think about the colours and extra features. We look forward to hearing about your designs  on our class blog.

Suggested Activity

Make your indoor game to play today.

It might be something like your own Snakes and Ladders game. 

There is an example below where you add your own snakes and ladders, it also has some questions about snakes so you might like to make your own fact file to answer the questions. 

You could adapt it for different challenges.

For example

  • Put a different number at the start or make an alphabet one instead
  • Have a question that you need to answer before you can go up the ladder "Tell me the number that is 1 less, 2 more" etc
  • Don't use snakes and ladders in the game, use your own theme instead.

Have fun and tell us all about your new game on our class blog

Suggested activity 

This week at home my 2 sons and I made special potions from all the things we could find in our garden or from our walk. We used an old bowl and filled it up with water and added different ingredients e.g. cut up a bright yellow dandelion, a sprinkle of  mucky mud etc. Yes this might be a messy one but they loved it! They used wooden spoons to mix their potions and spent hours adding different ingredients.  Now with your potions can you:

  • Write  list of ingredients
  • Describe the different ingredients and their amounts e.g. 1 white, small daisy etc.  
  • Write a message on our blog about what special power your potion would do/give.  Can't wait to hear how creative you have been!

Hello Rabbits! I'm currently sat here in my PE kit waiting to start Joe Wick's PE lesson. Make sure you have a look if you have not already done so. It's great and definitely gets your heart pumping. He runs a class everyday at 9am via YouTube.

Challenge Signs, Literacy Signs and Maths Signs | Teaching Resources

We thought we would set you some Maths challenges today. So we have attached some problems at the bottom of the page for you. There are some for Reception and some for Year 1. Don't forget, tell your grown up how you know what the answer is...what did you have to do to get there?! Also what could you use around the house to help? Enjoy!

Tuesday 31st March

It is the last day of March.  It looks like we are going to have some sunshine. March has 31 days in it. Can you find out how many other months of the year have 31 days?

Today there is a fun measuring challenge to do with your feet. Please make sure they are clean, no cheesy feet!

The task is attached at the bottom of the page.

Enjoy your challenge

Just a reminder about our E-Safety rules to use at home as we do in school to keep children and adults safe online. Whitewater E-Safety poster is attached below.



Monday 30th March

I hope you all had a good weekend. Did you have really varied weather where you live? I had sunshine, rain, snow and lots of wind! Mrs Proctor  was out in her garden planting lots of vegetables and helping her son to put a new liner in our pond. Hopefully when we are all back at school we will be able to pond dip in our lovely school pond.  

This Happy Monday is based on  the Winnie The Pooh stories by A.A. Milne

Make one with your  favourite characters from a book, television. or film.  You might choose to do one that includes the people you live with or your friends . Make it really bright and eye catching.

Friday 27th March

It's Friday!! Which means one thing, it's nearly the weekend for you and your grown ups ;)

I have attached your learning task for today and it's at the bottom of this page, it's called 'Spot the Difference'. Don't worry if you don't have a printer you can just find the differences on the computer screen. 

Have a lovely weekend and stay safe!

Thursday 26th March 

Good  morning! It looks like it's going to be another beautiful day...so if you can try and make the most of it :) 

How did you get on with your challenge yesterday!? I'm sure you all managed to workout that it was....Elmer! 

Now today's task is a little different. As part of keeping everyone smiling the government have asked you to create a rainbow picture to put up in your windows at home. Then when you go on a walk you can count how many you can spot. You can use any material to create you picture so go wild!! The more colourful and crazy the better.
