6.7.20 Hello Butterflies!
Mrs Kachmarski here. We only have a couple of school weeks left now before the summer - I hope you can enjoy some of the activities we have planned for home learning this week. Which ones are you going to choose?
We have a new Cosmic Kids Yoga session to try this week - Squish the Fish! Are you enjoying the yoga sessions? Sing-a-long to the classic song 'Oh I do like to be beside the seaside' - have you heard this song before? Enjoy watching 'The Big Pancake' story which is part of your learning this half term - did you enjoy it?
See you next week. :-)
Good morning Butterflies.
Here’s some activities for you to have a go at for this week. I hope you are all keeping busy. Mrs Kachmarski has been putting lots of things on to purple mash for you to do and I keep having a look to see what you’ve been up to. I have seen some amazing gingerbread men. Well done everyone.
Welcome Back Butterflies
I hope you all had a super half term holiday and are ready to get back to some more home learning. I can’t believe this is our last term together as Butterflies.
Our new Talk 4 Writing story is The Gingerbread Man.
We have listened to this story before so you should all be brilliant at retelling the story and remembering the repeated words in the story.
Run, run as fast as you can. You can’t catch me I’m the gingerbread man.
Here are some ideas for you to do this half term.
Here are some activities for this week.
As I will be back at school tomorrow Mrs Kachmarski will be adding activities on to purple mash.
Keep going with these activities. Let’s wow Mrs Kachmarski with how amazing we are in Butterflies.
Please keep sharing what you’ve been up to using the evidence me app. I know me and Mrs Yong love to see what you’ve been doing.
For those of you who are moving in to bees in to September, remember to have a look at the transition class pages.
I just wanted to say Well Done to everyone this half term. You’ve been doing a great job with home learning. I’ve loved seeing the activities you’ve been doing on purple mash and the things you’ve shared with me on evidence me.
It’s our half term holiday next week so there won’t be any new activities for you to do. Have a rest and enjoy the holiday. Hopefully it will be nice and sunny and you will be able to get outside.
Take care everyone
love from Miss Lambert
It’s the last week of our summer 1 term and that means it’s our last week of The Train Ride.
This week we are thinking about different kinds of transport.
Can you go outside for a walk and look at all the different coloured cars? How many different colours can you see?
Can you count the red cars? Can you count the silver cars?
Are there more or fewer red cars or silver cars?
Can you draw a picture of your favourite car?
Miss Lambert is trying to get fitter while she’s at home. I’ve started jogging and doing some yoga.
Can you do some activities to keep yourself fit this week?
Play follow my leader.
Move like different animals eg waddle like a duck, take giant steps like an elephant.
Play Simon Says.
Use tape or chalk to make your own hopscotch.
Put some music on and have a dance.
Sing along with some action songs.
It’s time for another week of home learning. It seems like such a long time since Mrs Yong and I saw you and we are missing being able to work with you everyday. I’ve been looking at the work you’ve been doing this week and you are amazing.
Have a look a some of the fantastic things you’ve all been doing.
Can you make up some silly names for your toys that rhyme?
eg Fizzy Wizzy Lizzy or Tob Hob Bob.
Make some silly soup
Using a bowl and spoon, put objects into the bowl that rhyme. Have a selection of objects so you can find the ones that rhyme.
I’m making lots of silly soup.
I’m making soup that’s silly.
I’m going to cook it in the fridge
To make it nice and chilly.
In goes socks, fox and box.
In maths this week can you think about words relating to position such as in front, behind, next to, under. Use the link below to play a positional language game.
It’s time for a new week of home learning.
I hope you are all keeping busy at home. Looking at all the work you have been doing is making me smile a lot. Keep going, you are doing a great job.
Harry, Elicia and Isla have been really busy using purple mash this week. They made these amazing, colourful beach huts. Super work everyone.
This week we are going to be thinking about floating and sinking and pushing and pulling.
Can you use some junk modelling to make a boat that floats? Try using different things to see which floats best. Can you make a colourful sail for your boat?
Can you find objects around your house and see if they float or sink?
In our train ride story, the engine pulls the carriages along the track. Everyday we push things and pull things to make them move.
Can you find some things around your house that you have to push and things you have to pull to make them move?
Maybe you could share a picture of yourself pushing or pulling something on evidence me.
Hopefully you have all received the message on evidence me from Miss Burke about Pyjamarama day on Friday.
There is a website from the book trust which I have put down below.
I hope everyone has a fantastic day reading lots of different books, talking about their favourite books and characters while you are wearing your pyjamas.
In school we love to see your pictures of extreme reading. How many different places can you find to read a book?
I look forward to seeing what you get up to. Remember to share your pictures on evidence me.
Hello, Miss Burke here! 2 weeks ago lots of you will have had your school place with us confirmed ... we are so exited to those of you in Butterflies older enough to join school to join us in Bee's next year! Your grown up's by now should have received a letter from myself explaining the current transition plans and we will keep you posted on them as they changes in the current situation on COVID-19.
In the meantime here is a great website for you to have a look at, play games on and lots of helpful information on transition into full time school. Have fun!
Have fun, remember if you have any questions about starting school please do not hesitate to get in contact with myself via the school office. Have fun. Miss Burke :)
Our Early Years team wanted to say HELLO and WE MISS YOU all! We have loved seeing all your work on Purple Mash and great photos Evidence Me so we wanted to show you our happy faces! We hope to see you soon! Remember stay home and stay safe!
It’s week 2 of our summer term.
Lots of you have been busy doing your work on purple mash and sending me pictures on evidence me. Well done and keep it up!
In the story there is a horse and her baby called a foal.
Do you know the names of any other baby animals?
Could you make your own matching card game? Draw pictures of baby and mummy animals, turn them over and see if you can get a matching pair.
Welcome to a new term of home learning Butterflies.
I hope you've all had a great Easter holidays and are ready to get back to some home learning.
I've been in school this week but it's been very strange without you all being here.
We have a new Talk 4 Writing book for this term. It's called The Train Ride by June Crebbin.
I hope you are all keeping busy at home. I am missing seeing you everyday and I know Mrs Yong is missing you all too.
I have really enjoyed seeing the work you have been doing on purple mash. You have worked so hard on all the activities, Well Done
In Each Peach Pear Plum we had to do a lot of ‘I spy’ to find the nursery rhyme and fairy tale characters.
This week why don’t you have a go at making some binoculars and have your own game of ‘I Spy’ either in your house or garden if you can.
Use your binoculars to find different shapes. Keep a look out for triangles, squares, circles and rectangles.
What numbers can you spot around your house? What colours can you spy?
In our phonics work we are learning all about rhyming words.
We have learned lots of nursery rhymes like Jack and Jill, Mary, Mary, quite contrary, Little Bo Peep and Humpty Dumpty.
Have a practise saying these rhymes. Can you find anymore nursery rhymes?
Can you find or see things in your house or outside that rhyme?
Welcome to Butterflies Blog.
Every week we hope to let you know about all the exciting things we are doing in school.
This week we have been learning our T4W (Talk For Writing) story Each Peach Pear Plum. Ask your child to tell you the story and show you the actions they have learned. Don't forget if you haven't got our T4W book at home you could visit the library. Using libraries is free and it gives children a great love of books and boosts their imaginations. Share a book at bedtime, there is no better thing to do than to snuggle up with a loved one and enter a magical world that is stories.
