I hope you enjoyed your minibeast safari hunt yesterday! Its nice to start our new topic and see how amazing your home learning is already! I was blown away with all your minibeast bug hotels too, I hope you get lots of minibeast visits over the next weeks!
Don’t forget to check out our weekly challenges page and sent over your pictures or videos of you completing the challenge. Will Acorns win this week? Or will it be 2-0 to Mrs Trusler!
Please continue to send your work to us each day, so we can provide any feedback and see how hard you are working!
Our daily outline of what your day will look like today:
Yesterday we looked a measuring in footprints and finding different objects which were longer or shorter. Today we will carry on with our footprint theme but think about measuring the length of something using cubes. How many cubes long is something?
1. Become a mystery mouse too and help work out the different footprints that have been left behind by our superheroes? Check out the PowerPoint below. How many can you get right?
2. Dough activity:
Encourage throughout the activity to use mathematical language relating to length as they play. Create different lengths of snakes using play dough. Ask: Can you make a long snake? A short snake? A thick snake? A thin snake? Show me the longest snake you can make. How many cubes long is your snake?
Watch the video below and answer on questions on the story ‘The very hungry caterpillar’.
We have got a mindfulness yoga session this week, which supports calming and relaxation. I hope you enjoy!
Don't forget to check out Mrs D’s challenge below for PE this week. How many can you complete?
As part of our EYFS Curriculum the children would access a range of choosing activities and learn together and individually through play. I have set some options for you to choose from below. These do not all need to be completed and can be more independent for your child to complete and play maybe even alongside a sibling.
1. Physical development task: Leaf confetti!
Take a walk outside to collect lots of different coloured and textured leaves. Explore how to use a hole punch safely to make holes in the leaves. Use the punched-out leaf litter to make leaf confetti and put in bowls for sensory play.
2. Reading task: Spider!
Offer a ‘browsing box’ of information books all about minibeasts to enjoy, maybe create your own den to read your stories or information books in.
Are the children interested in the books?
Do the children know the books contain information?
Can the children talk about things they have read?
