Owlets Home Learning
Week 10 Week beginning 29th June 2020
Hello Owlets, are you ready for another week of learning? This week we are going to move onto the seaside. Please remember to keep sending Miss Black and I your lovely photos of your home learning. We love seeing what fantastic things you have been up to.
Have a brilliant week everyone and I hope you enjoy this week’s activities.
Story of the Week
This week our Story of the Week is 'Kipper the Dog- The Seaside' by Mick Inkpen.
This week our Maths focus is pattern. We are going to be making repeating patterns. This means that a pattern continues and goes on and on and on.
Words to use with your children- pattern, repeating, repeat, continue
Challenge 1- Have a look around your house for objects or toys that you could use to make a repeating pattern. Have a look at the pictures below for some examples. Once you have made your pattern see if you can tell your grown-up what your pattern is, e.g. grape, strawberry, grape, strawberry, grape, strawberry.
Challenge 2- Have a go at playing the colour repeating pattern game. Click on the link below. Can you help to complete the repeating patterns?
Let’s recap the sounds we have already learnt: s, a, t, p, i
This week we are going to learn the sound ‘n’.
Now lets listen to the song for 'n'. Remember to do the action too- put your arms out to the side and pretend to be an aeroplane.
Have a look at the picture below, can you see some objects that start with the 'n' sound.
Now have a go at writing 'n'. Watch the video below to see how to write it correctly.
Now watch the video below and have a go at putting some sounds together to make some words. All of the words will have the 'n' sound in them, can you spot it? (Grown-ups, there may be some sounds that appear that we haven't yet learnt)
This week have a go at making some moon sand with your grown-ups. It's very easy to make and you will have lots of fun exploring playing with it. All you need to make it is flour and baby oil!
Just mix together 8 cups of flour and 1 cup of baby oil and you will have your moon sand. If you want to colour your moon sand, just add some food colouring into the baby oil before mixing with the flour.
Can you have a go at building some sandcastles? You could use sand toys, yoghurt pots, cups, bowls, spoons, scoops. How many sandcastles can you make?
Nursery Rhyme of the Week
This week's Nursery Rhyme of the week is called 'If You're Happy and You Know It'.
Dough Disco is something we do at school to help develop and strength our muscles in our fingers which will help us when we do our writing. All you will need is some playdough and the video below. If you don't have any playdough, don't worry it is really easy to make. Just have a look at the recipe below.
2 cups plain flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (baby oil and coconut oil work too)
1/2 cup salt
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
1 to 1. cups boiling water (adding in increments until it feels just right)
food colouring (optional)
Mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar and oil in a large mixing bow
Add food colouring TO the boiling water then into the dry ingredients
Stir continuously until it becomes a sticky, combined dough
Allow it to cool down then take it out of the bowl and knead it vigorously for a couple of minutes until all of the stickiness has gone. * This is the most important part of the process, so keep at it until it’s the perfect consistency!*
If it remains a little sticky then add a touch more flour until just right
