An interesting thing to do in this sunny weather
Home Learning 19.5.20- Healthy Eating
PE - To eat a healthy range of foodstuffs and understand the need for variety in food.
Look at the pictures below of different types of food. Can you sort them into healthy and unhealthy food?
Which food would you use to make a healthy lunch?
for the week beginning 18th May 2020, I want you to look at technology in your home.
This week I have a science experiment for you F1.
I can examine changes over time and talk about how things happen.
Can you make ice grow?
What happens when you pour the icy cold water over the ice cubes?
How tall can you make your icy tower grow?
What has happened and why? What has changed? what is still the same?
Tell your grown ups what you have observed.
F1 Well Being
Draw some pictures to show what things make you feel happy.
Why not sing one of our favourite songs, If You're Happy and You Know It Clap Your Hands.
F1 Home Learning - Music and Movement (Being Imaginative)
Here is another musical challenge for you to try to practice keeping a steady beat and moving to music.
Today's song is The Bear Went Over the Mountain.
Sing along and clap to the beat, then make up some actions to move to the music.
Can you tiptoe, walk or crawl up the mountain in time to the beat?
Can you think of a different animal to climb the mountain? How would they move?
Have fun and keep singing!
Foundation 1 Physical Development – Self Care
It’s that time of year in F1 when we think about moving up and being “school ready”. So, we are asking you to practice some skills that will help you become more independent as we move into F2.
Over the next few weeks we would like you to practice putting on and taking off your coats/jackets by yourself. Getting changed for PE and dressing yourself is also an important skill.
Here are some tips to help with coats, zips, shoes and socks.
P.E.-To observe the effects of physical exercise on your body .
Put your hand on your heart, how does it feel ?
spend 5 minutes running around/ doing star jumps
feel your heart now, how does it feel?
do you feel out of breath? is your heart beating faster? are your muscles tired?
Home Learning - Being Imaginative (Music and Movement)
Hello everyone, here is something for you to try at home to develop your creative skills and get moving to music. All you need is to use the link below and let your imagination flow.
The music is called Aquarium by Saint-Saens.
Can you move to the music? Maybe you could flap your hands like the tropical fish or pretend to be a graceful seahorse on your tip toes?
What other creatures can you see? How do they move in the water?
Listen carefully to the music and have fun!
Don't forget to keep practicing our Engine Number Nine and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star songs on the F1 blog.
Good morning F1's, thought you might be missing our playdough so see if your grown ups can make you some using this easy recipe that I use.
Did you know you can make playdough in next to no time from everyday ingredients found in your kitchen cupboards?
This super-easy playdough recipe is the perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon inside. It's quick enough to hold a young child's attention and you only need a few storecupboard ingredients. Little hands can play with the results straightaway, so there's immediate gratification for all involved!
Makes 1 coloured ball
You will need
- 8 tbsp plain flour
- 2 tbsp table salt
- 60ml warm water
- food colouring / paint or I have used chocolate powder / spices
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
1. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl mix together the water, a few drops of food colouring and the oil.
2. Pour the coloured water into the flour mix and bring together with a spoon.
3. Dust a work surface with a little flour and turn out the dough. Knead together for a few minutes to form a smooth, pliable dough. If you want a more intense colour you can work in a few extra drops of food colouring.
4. Store in a plastic sandwich bag (squeeze out the air) in the fridge to keep it fresh.
