Spring 2

Hello Peacocks this weeks challenges are below: 

There is one for each day of the week. 
 
Monday: draw a sunshine to make someone smile. 
 
Tuesday: write the numbers 0-20 (you could even make your own number line or number cards) 
 
Wednesday: build a tower of blocks or with things in your house. Can you make a big tower? Can you make a small tower? Could you even make a medium sized tower? Wow! 
 
Thursday: write your full name both first and surnames! remembering capital letters 
 
Friday: share a story and talk about the characters in it. Could you use a describing word for example: The tiger is big and orange. 
 
I hope you are all safe and well. It was nice to  chat to you all yesterday and check in.

Hello Peacock Class :-) 

We hope you all had a good weekend. 
Second week now of being at home and we hope you are all safe and well. 
 
I have put together two documents to help you at home. One has lots of songs that the children are familiar with and these link to certain areas of the curriculum. Normally in class we may start the lesson with a song to get everyone focused and ready for learning. 
 
The second is an ideas sheet full of fine motor skill activities that can be done at home. These ideas use household items so use what you have around you to keep the children busy. The ideas are things that the children have done in class before. Remember fine motor skills enable the children to strengthen their hand muscles and helps with skills such as writing and doing buttons and zips on clothing for instance. 
 
Today's challenge is to draw a sunshine picture to make someone in your family smile. :-)

Animal Boogie Song

Here is a link to the Animal Boogie song the book we have been studying this half term.  Please share this with your child before completing the worksheets provided in your homework pack.

Dough Disco

At school the children regularly take part in dough disco to help develop their finger strength and fine motor skills. Here are some videos you can try with your child. These could be done once a day as repetition is great!

I am sure all of you would love that after looking at animals in science this term. 
Also have you put a teddy bear in your window yet to do a bear hunt? People are going on bear hunts for their daily exercise. See how many you can spot?! 
Keep safe and have a good weekend 
Remember our class email is up and running if you need me. I check it daily. I will ring you all again on Monday/Tuesday to check in with you all.

Hello Everyone
We know this is a strange and unnerving time for everyone. Please as stated above use the class packs as they are full of activities that the children are familiar with. The computer activities are all well known by the children and the log in details for all of them our in the packs provided. 
 
On the internet due to the situation lots of websites are offering their resources for free, such as twinkl.

 

https://www.twinkl.co.uk/

 

Children also love playing on Topmarks using their knowledge in interactive games.

 

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/

 
If you are wanting more routine splitting the day up into sections may help. Ideas of how to do this are below.
 
(you could make cards or verbally tell them using the language now and next) 
Breakfast 
Washing teeth and hands etc 
Getting Dressed 
PE- Joe Wicks PE session on youtube everyday 9am monday-friday 
Choosing time- give options to chose from e.g. play outside or playing with your cars inside 
creative- most people are putting rainbows in their windows, Could you join in?
We have been focusing on animals and life cycles in class. Could they make a butterfly painting etc? 
Snack Time and rest 
Maths- counting toys/building blocks or writing numbers. i-pad topmarks games on all subjects of maths 
Writing- writing their names both first and surname. In class we have been working on describing things, e,g, the bear from the animal boogie is black and white. 
Lunch time and rest 
Free afternoon - or continue the structure with more relaxed activities such as reading together watching something on TV together, cooking, even house hold chores! It is all part of life and everyday skills are essential
 
I have also attached a write dance that we have been doing every Monday morning. The children helped plan this write dance with me and all of the movements were their ideas :-). For this lesson we follow the powerpoint and use material to do the actions such as wave, zigzag etc. Then after we use those movements on paper with pens or crayons. It could be something nice to do together as a family or for them to do with their siblings. 
 
Please as before cherish this time with family and keep safe. The email set up for our class is checked daily so contact on that if you need anything.

Hello everyone

From peacock team and I, we all wish that you are keeping well and safe following the government guidelines. Staying at home is the safest for all of us at this time. 
We understand that this is a strange and anxious time. 
Please use the packs we sent home as children will be familiar with those activities and learning websites. Please have fun with your children and ease their minds by reading or watching films as a family. This time together however strange is also very precious. 
Please contact the class email if you need to at any time as this will be checked daily. 
Please stay safe 
Thinking of you and missing you all 
xx

Autumn 2 Update

Our topic for this half term is Over the Rainbow. We have been exploring a different colour each week. We have tasted different coloured foods, dressed in every colour of the rainbow and as part of our science work mixed paints to make new colours.

 

In literacy, we have been reading “Sleeping Beauty”. We are able to sequence and retell the story. We have also been concentrating on writing our names, making sure we use a capital letter and forming the letters correctly.
