Hi 5.3 and 5.4.  We hope you are really well and looking after yourselves.

Our theme this week is Nature/Our World.  Please take some photos of you having a go at one of these activities and send them to us.  We’d love to see what you have been up to!

Mindfulness: a mindfulness walk.  What can you see and hear on the video?:

This is another lovely video of nature for you to watch. We hope you enjoy it:

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/learning-to-count/ladybird-spots

Maths 5.3 – Order the numbers at the coconut shy!:

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/ordering-and-sequencing/coconut-ordering

Looking at nature- Nature is the living world around us … cats, birds, squirrels, bugs, trees, plants are all living things.

Task- Take a look outside.  Name six living things you can see.  If you can take a photo of them and send it to us that would be wonderful.  If you like using the computer, you could find pictures of six different living things and make a nature page. We would love to see it!

Quiet Time. Why does quiet time have to be inside?  If the weather is ok, you can create a little quiet space outside in the shade.  Grab a blanket, pillows, and whatever else you need to get comfy.  Bring and read some books.  You can also colour or do (almost) any other quiet activity you would normally enjoy inside.

If you can get out this week  take a nature walk. Nature walks can provide great fun. Have you ever collected rocks leaves, and flowers during a walk? Look and listen to the birds, watch and the squirrels. You can even pull your child in a wagon or stroller if that makes the walk easier. Just enjoy the scenery to get the full effect.

Go on a minibeast hunt outside or at the park. Can you see?…

  • a worm after a shower
  • a bumblebee looking for nectar
  • a spotty ladybird exploring the grass
  • a slimy snail in a dark damp spot
  • a butterfly basking in the sunshine?

Here is a wonderful activity when the weather is ok.

5.3 ‘The Bear and Birds’ Questions for discussion:

What is strange about all of the bees?

What kind of animal is Gruzzle?

The bees don’t like Gruzzle and are not friendly to him – why is this?

How does this make Gruzzle feel?

What did Gruzzle do the next day?

And how did the bees react at first?

The Bees eventually decide that it’s good to be different and boring to be all the same…Does this message remind you of another story we have read?

What do you think the world would be like if we all looked the same and had to like the same things?
