Optional Forest School activities 31.3.20:
Provide with boat-making materials, such as corks, plastic or Styrofoam trays, plastic bottles cut in half, foil containers, sponge shapes, wooden sticks and lollipop sticks. You could use drinking straws, paper and sticky tack for creating the sails. Use imaginations to create a boat, then find out whose boat floats and if any can carry passengers!
Provide a water-filled tank and a range of everyday objects to investigate. You could use trays labelled ‘floats’ and ‘sinks’ to sort the different items. Fill large plastic bottles with brightly-coloured water and add small items that float and sink. Tip them upside down, shake them and observe what happens to the items inside. Ask ‘What floats?’ and ‘What sinks?’

Hi! Hope you’ve all had a good weekend. Shame the weather wasn’t quite so glorious as it had been in the week.
Here are today’s activities. Hopefully you will find time to complete some of them, despite all the other things you’re trying to do as well. See you on Zoom at 2.30 for Show and Tell and a story. Perhaps the children could tell us about something they’ve done at the weekend or show something they’ve made / drawn / found.
Join in with Joe Wicks 5 Minute Move work out or Cosmic Yoga
Early Birds (optional)
Try this garden hunt. How many of the objects do you have in your garden? Can you read some of the words?
If you like, you could make one up for a country walk. Perhaps you could email it to a friend for them to try over the Easter Holidays?
Recap all Phase 2 and Phase 3 sounds. You could do this using one of your favourite picture books. How many digraphs and trigraphs can you find? Perhaps make a list.
Sound of the day is “ure”. As the children will tell you, it’s not my favourite one!
I think we could leave this one to Mr Thorne and Geraldine to explain.
Please take some time this week to practise reading and writing Tricky Words.
To summarise these are:
Phase 2: the, to, no, go, I, into
Phase 3: he, she, we, me, be, was, you, they, all, are, my, her
You could do it using the attached game.
Roll the dice, read the number, choose a word from that column. If you can read it cover it with a counter. Who can get the most counters on the board?
Start off by watching this episode of Numberblocks:
Talk with your child about 10 being made up of 10 ones.
Count out 10 sticks. Wrap a piece of string or ribbon around them to make a bundle. Talk about this bundle being 1 ten and no more, and that’s why we write ten as 10 (one 10 and no ones). The children should be familiar with this from school.
What happens when you add 1 more stick? (Put next to the bundle not in it.) How many sticks do you have now? How do we write this? 11 is one 10 and one 1......keep going. I’ve attached some pictures to help.
What happens when you get to 20? You can make another bundle of 10 sticks as you have another set of 10? Now you have 2 tens and no more and that’s why we write 20 like this.
Hope that’s clear! Let me know how you get on.
Have a good day.
