Important Information about the reopening of school

Double trouble having fun in school 🀣🀣

Half-term fun activities to try...

Week commencing 25th May

Any shaving foam at home? This is a great sensory activity to try and the kids love it at school. Write or hid some numbers in a tray or large dish. Then spray the shaving foam on. Use a figure or children’s favourite toy (preferably plastic) to find the numbers. 
This activity is also great for developing imaginations. 
See what your child does with the foam. 
Please take care if your child has any allergies. 

Water bead fun

Water beads make a great malleable and sensory activity. They are very versatile.

I bought this rainbow pack from eBay. 
 

They are not edible. Children must be supervised at all times when playing with these. 

Water balloons with letter sounds

Any left over balloons in the house? 
I filled some with water and wrote some letter sounds on them. You can also write numbers or play other games with them. 
If you use balloons they don’t pop as easily. 
 

Letter games

Use a simple letter sound may off sparklebox.com

or make your own. 
Use counters or small toys or cover up the letters if the children get them correct. 
My little boy loves the mini dinosaurs. 

Make your own numberline

This is a great activity for ordering numbers and visually representing the quantity at the same time. 
Your child can check the different amounts by counting them. 
 

Loads of maths in one activity! 
 

You can make this more challenging by playing which numbers are missing in the sequence. Remove some cards. 
You can also add some misconceptions in to the game. E.g muddle the numbers up in the wrong order to see if your child can spot the mistakes and put it right. 

Lolly stick art

Loose parts play. 
 

Ideas for making your own art using the following or similar objects: 

 

sticks

stones

buttons

pebbles

curtain hoops

nuts and bolts
leaves

 

I look forward to seeing your creations. 

 

Make your own potions

This is a great way to get your child talking and using new words. 
 

This activity is so open ended because all you need is water and you can use anything!

 

At school, we enjoy using mud🀣🀣

 

In this activity your child will develop their imaginative skills and creativity. 

A really bubbly tea party πŸ₯³

I know how much red class love their tea parties with teddies, dolls and even our dinosaurs. 
This is a tea party with a twist. Add your own bubbles to make your toys some fantastic bubbly drinks. 
 

Please do not drink the bubbles πŸ€£

Reading key words

Make your own magic wand to help you read some key words. 
 

This wand was made with a straw and tinfoil. 
 

Key words also known as high frequency words can be found online. Most of the words are not decodable (we can’t fred them out and blend them together) but some are. These are the words that need practising over and over again. 
 

This is one way to make it fun!

Good morning Red Class. Today’s challenge is to think about your favourite Disney character or Superhero.

How many can you name?

Draw and write about your favourite character. 
Then have a go at inventing your own Princess or Superhero. I look forward to seeing them.

Please can you practise the new sound blending books with your child. Please return these daily as we use them in our phonics lesson. 

These have superseded our oxford reading tree scheme as we are promoting using decodable books inline with our phonics scheme. However, if you would like any additional books to promote the love of reading at home, please ask and we will be more than happy to supply additional books.
