Additional learning

Today our practical challenge is to make something very important to a pirate…a pirate treasure map! Pirates LOVE treasure, and sometimes they bury treasure to keep it safe. Often they use X Mark’s the spot to help them find their treasure again. Today, find something very special to you in your house and hide it in your bedroom. Your challenge is to make a map of your home and put your X marks the spot where you have hidden your treasure. You might want to stain your paper with a tea bag to make it look old. I’m sure Pirate Paddy would be super impressed! Don’t forget to send us some pictures. 🗺

Story Baskets

When sharing stories with your child, try and find some objects at home to use as props from the story you are reading. You can even make your own! Keep them together along with the book and then you have made your very own story bag/basket/tray. This type of activity is perfect to help your child to independently recall the story, to learn and use new words and to develop their role play skills by acting out the story.

Share the story basket together but also leave it out so that your child can independently access it too.

We have attached some examples below:

Call for people to celebrate VE Day with a 'Stay at Home' street ...

Did you find out some useful information about VE day yesterday? We hope you and your family can take part in the stay at home street party celebrations. The aim is to decorate your home with red, white and blue decorations and have a picnic in your front garden on Friday.

Today, we are going to start to get ready for our VE Day picnic party on Friday. Our first job is to make a shopping list of the things we need for our picnic…

What sort of things do you have at a picnic? I love to have sandwiches, crisps, apples and juice. Here’s a shopping list template you can use if you want. Can you sound out the words making phonetic attempts? Be careful with your letter formation 😉

People like to remember this day and celebrate the fact that there was going to peace in Europe again. Check out our the video link below to find out a little bit more. I will post different activities throughout the week to help us be prepared for the huge celebrations on Friday.

Gross motor challenge: Rainbow ribbon dancing

Why not create your own rainbow streamer by cutting out long strips of coloured paper/ material and attaching them together at one end.

Children's Learning Activities: Paper Plate Streamer Rainbow

Alternatively if you do not have the resources to make your own streamer you could use everyday items around the house such as toilet/kitchen paper, tea towel to use as your own flipper flapper for dancing.

Play your favourite song and use your rainbow flapper to create these large scale movements with your arms. These movements will help to develop those important muscles in your shoulders and arms needed for super writing.

  • Create straight vertical lines beginning low and then stretching up high.
  • Create straight horizontal lines from left to right.
  • Create large circular motions – clockwise and then anti clockwise
  • Cross the mid-line – create large circles with both arms, making your arms cross over in the middle.

Step 2- Ask your child to cut along the spiral line, they might find this a bit tricky, that’s okay just let them have a go! Using different paper you could also ask your child to cut along straight lines or even use their scissors to snip the paper, this will help develop their scissor control and help to maintain an appropriate grip.

Step 3- begin to roll up the spiral from the outside, you could also use a pen or pencil to wrap it round.
