Good morning.

Have you been enjoying the lovely sunshine? In my garden although all the summer flowers are still in bud, there are tiny clues of what colour they will be.think the insects are excited I have seen shield beetles and an orange tipped butterfly so far.It is also lovely to hear the birds singing their choruses.
Why not look around your 
garden or a natural area near you for mini beasts? Can you count how many legs they have? What colours are they.Why not have a go at drawing one?

Did you notice flags, red, white and blue bunting and other decorations on houses on Friday?That was because it was VE day. That was the day that everyone celebrated Victory in Europe and the end of the Second World War.There were streetparties, dancing, and lots of party food.This year it is 75 years since the end of the war.
Why not paint your own bunting red,
white and blue? Have a look online for an image of the Union Jack. What can you find out about it? Can you have a go at copying it?
There 
was lots of cake at the celebration, especially Victoria Sponge Cake or Fairy Cakes.If you can get the ingredients why, not make some?Flapjack always goes down well at tea parties. Here is a great recipe

Good morning

Recently, I have come across messages, painted on pebbles and wood, thanking the NHS and asking us to stay safe. They were brightly decorated with rainbows, butterflies and flowers. The rainbow has become a logo, a message of hope to cheer people up in this strange time.

If you look around your house, you will find signs and logos on clothes, food packets, bottles, boxes, and on TV. A logo is a sign or symbol that is a ‘message’ about a thing. Sometimes the logo is a word and sometimes a picture. Ask a grownup to point them out to you. Why not collect logos and signs from packets and make a collage from them? Can you match some letters to those in your name? Why not create a logo or sign for your name or something special to you?

Hello Everyone.

We hope you have had a good weekend. In a ‘normal’ world, here are some events happening this week. 

On Wednesday 22nd it is Earth Day. On this day people wonder about our beautiful planet earth and think about ways to protect it. 
I found a fingerprint world activity which looked like fun. You could make it easier by just drawing the world outline and filling in the sea and land. Why not make insects, animals, birds and plants as well. 
https://www.busykidshappymom.org/fingerprint-world-tutorial/

I loved this Trash Rainbow activity on https://www.notimeforflashcards.com/2011/03/trash-rainbow-craft.html Can you think of ideas for this day? Take a photo and we can share when we are all together gain.

On the Thursday 23, it is St George’s Day. St George is the patron saint of England. You can read about how George slayed a dragon on https://www.storynory.com/st-george-and-the-dragon/ 
The knights lived by a code of Chivalry. This meant that they had to show mercy, humility, honour, sacrifice, faithfulness, courage and graciousness. Can you find out what these words mean and see if you can be an example of them? Why not become a knight (girls can be knights too!) and make your own sword and shield? 
https://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/whats-on/st-georges-day/ Maybe you could create your own dastardly dragon!

For the Muslim community it is the beginning of Ramadan on the evening of the 23rd. Part of this holiday’s ritual is that of fasting (not eating or drinking) between dawn and dusk. This allows the Muslim people to focus on good deeds. It is a time of being with the family; of caring and sharing; helping the sick and needy; of not gossiping, telling lies or being greedy. No matter if you have a faith or not, there are many values in Ramadan which we can practise in our daily lives.

Quests and Challenges

Can you recognise your name? Why not have a go at writing it. You could trace it in flour or salt. Use water and a brush to paint it outside. Can you think of any other ways?
Catch a large ball. Then play a game of catch. Count how many times you can catch it without dropping it.
Make a pattern picture out of things you find in the garden. Or build with items found in the kitchen. Can you tell a story about your creations?

Parent/Carers
If you are able, please take photographs or record, in any way possible, children’s work and achievements during this time. It will be lovely to share when we are all back together.

Much love to you all

Mrs Vasconcelos, Mrs Loseby and Mrs Adderley.

Good morning to you all.

I have been inspired and humbled by the fund-raising efforts of the war veteran Captain Tom Moore. He has walked 100 laps around him garden. It is not a small garden. A lap is 25 metres. That means he will have walked just over one and a half miles. Not bad for a 99-year-old with a walking frame. If you don’t already know, there is the campaign to for children to send him virtual birthday cards to say thank you. Why don’t you send him a card if you are able to.

I have been looking for information on how to do this. I typed in ‘makeacardfortom’ into my search engine. I found these two sites which may help.

Hello Everyone.

How are you all. It has probably been quite an unusual Easter weekend for many. Just to let you know that our love and best wishes are with you.

I have been searching the internet for snippets of information and have found out that tomorrow is the festival of Vaisakhi (va-SAH-kee"). This a is the festival, celebrated by Sikhs, celebrates the start of a new solar year, and new harvest season.

Acorns Activity Thursday

Good Morning Everyone.

Thoughts on Thursday

Today, on 9th April, it is Maundy Thursday. This celebrates the last supper that Jesus had with his disciples. Do you share meals with your family? What is your favourite meal? At the supper Jesus washed his disciples’ feet. It showed Jesus’s humility. He didn’t think he was better than others. No matter what you believe, can you do something kind for someone today? Maybe you could help in the house, share a toy, or just tell them you love them.

Good Morning Everyone. Did anyone see the supermoon last night? Here is a link if you would like to learn about it https://www.space.com/super-pink-full-moon-2020-teach-your-kids.html If you are able, have a look at the moon tonight. What colour is it? What shape is it? I found this poem which I thought was quite poignant: I See the Moon I see the moon and the moon sees me The moon sees the somebody I'd like to see. God bless the moon and God bless me God bless the somebody I'd like to see! What rhymes do you know with the moon them? Phonics Play https://www.phonicsplay .co.uk/# I am just going to introduce you to this site ( if you don’t already know it). Children can access parts of it for free to play some phonic games. Syllable Symphony A syllable is a word part. Words are made up of syllables. You can count the syllables in a word as you say them. ‘Cat’ has one syllable. ‘Lion’, ‘Li-on’ has two syllables, ‘Dinosaur’ has three ‘Din-o-saur’. Listen, as you say your name. How many syllables are

Good Morning Everyone.

Yesterday I went for a walk around Hyde Park in Leeds. I am isolating in Leeds. I was so excited! I found a dinosaur’s footprint and then a giant’s footprint! I will try to send the photos. They were massive!!

 I wonder... Was the dinosaur the Giant’s pet? Did the dinosaur eat the Giant? Can you create a picture of what you think may have happened?

Good Morning Everyone.

When I look out of the window, I see blue sky and fluffy clouds doing their best to shake off the grey. The sun is trying to say hello too. What is the weather like where you are?

Do you remember how we all practised recognising and writing our names? Well, here’s an idea... Why don’t you decorate your name ? Ask someone to help you to write your name in bubble writing. You could then spend time adding faces, arms, legs, wings, flowers or superhero masks.

Acorns Activity Friday

Good Morning

 

I am so excited ! I will be moving into a new little house. While I’m waiting to move, I’m having great fun thinking about how I want it to look like. When I was a little older than you are now, I loved to design my future house. Can you design the house you would like? Will it be a castle or a cottage? What will the walls be made of? Will it have a garden? Why not put your designs onto the side of a cardboard box to make a model?
