Activities for this week - 30th March 2020
* If you are out having a little walk, look closely at the flowers and plants growing. See if you can spot any daffodils anywhere! Maybe you could have a try at drawing their shape. Or maybe you could make a daffodil picture in another way? We would love to see a photo of your work!
* In Spring the weather is quite changeable - sometimes it feels sunny and warm, but sometimes it can be windy or wet to! (This helps new flowers and plants to grow!) This is a perfect time for spotting a rainbow! Keep your eye on the weather and see if any rainbows appear! Lots of people are putting rainbow pictures in their windows - this really cheers people up! Can you make a rainbow picture and stick it in your window for everyone to see?
* We all love animals! have a little think about your favourite animal - and why you like it the best. Maybe you could find out something interesting about your favourite animal, using a book or the internet? We would love to know!
* I'm sure lots of you boys and girls are missing our 'wake and shake' and our 'nursery phonics'. Keep sharing lots of books at home, and here are some useful links to keep in touch with what we like doing - Have a try at learning the song 'The dingle-dangle scarecrow'. Use youtube to see Mr tumble singing, signing and dancing! Don't forget to learn the actions too!
