Children's Mental Health Week

~ Express Yourself! ~

 

 

Dress to impress: One of the ways we express ourselves is through our choice of clothing. So today we would like you to wear clothes that express your personality. You could make or design accessories, masks, props, jewellery or anything that you feel expresses who you are. We shall see you all at our zoom session, but please share your outfits with us on Tapestry and explain to us why you are wearing them. 

 

 

 

Friday 5th February 2021 - Learning Challenges

Before 0900- Wake Up and Get Dressed

Get ready for the day with independence; have a wash, dress yourself, eat breakfast and brush your teeth.

 

0900-0930 - Reading

Log on to Tapestry to listen to one of the teachers read this week’s story! 

If you are having trouble accessing our video, choose a book at home to read to yourself or share with someone in your family.

  Can you draw, paint or make the story setting?  

  

Can you draw a character from the story and add labels to describe them?  

  

  

Can you act out the story?  You could create your own props, puppets or costumes to help.

Discuss what is your favourite and least favourite part of the story and why?  

 

0930-1000- Maths Challenge

Warm up by counting to 10, forwards and backwards.  

 

Your Maths learning each day will begin by watching a video on the White Rose Maths website.  Watch the video and then complete the challenge found in the 'Additional Resources' section at the bottom of the page.

At the bottom of the page there are also some Additional Maths Challenges. These are only to be completed after the initial White Rose lesson and challenge. Only complete them if they are appropriate for your child, or you have spare time in your day.

1145 - 1215 – PSHE Challenge - A Ticket Around the World

For PSHE we would be learning about a different country every Friday.  Where will we be going today? 

 

Today’s country is Canada!  Log on to Tapestry to watch the video for this week. 

 

 

After watching the video, discuss: Would you like to live here?  How is it the same/different to where you live?  How would you get there?  What would you wear for your travels around the country (is it hot or cold)? 

 

To explore the country a little more, choose a challenge (or two) from the grid below:

 

 

Make the country’s flag.

 

 

Make or build a famous building or landmark.

 

 

Learn a traditional song.

 

 

Learn to say hello / goodbye in the language native to the country.

 

Research a native animal.

Count to 5 in the language native to the country.

 

There is also an episode of Go Jetters which visits this country. The link can be found below:

1215 - 1300 - Lunchtime

 

1300- 1330 – Phonics
Open Tapestry and watch the video ‘Set 1 Speed Sounds.’  Say the sounds along with the video; can you remember them all and say them first?  You should watch and say your Speed Sounds every single day. 
Revisit the sounds that we have learnt this week and practice reading your green and red words. 

After that, you can then practise your reading using the Ditty Sheet below (this is also available on Tapestry).  

 

1330 Onwards-Forest School

It is time to go to Forest School with Mrs Holmes. 

Follow the link below to Mrs Holmes' Forest School page where you can find a range of activities to try.

https://www.sussex-road.kent.sch.uk/forest-school-1/

Don't forget to post your Forest School challenges on Tapestry so that Mrs Holmes can see all of the brilliant things you have been doing. 

 

When you have finished, enjoy some free time to yourself or to spend with your family. 

We hope you have had a lovely day and we can’t wait to see your uploads on Tapestry.
