Rain Rain Go Away!

Hello butterflies hope you are all well. The weather this week has been a little bit different as we have had some rain showers, but lets enjoy the rain together with some fun activities. You might like to put your wellies on and enjoy making some big splashes in the puddles, you also might like to make raindrop pictures or even create a musical rain shaker. Please have a look at the ideas below. Why not sing and dance along to the famous song ‘Singing in the rain’.

During this very different times do not forget to smile and be happy. It would be lovely to see your happy smiling faces; don’t forget to send me your photographs and I will share them with your friends.

Fun in the Sun!

What fantastic weather we have had this week. I hope you have all enjoyed the sunshine. It has been wonderful to hear about all your adventures in the garden including having a splash in your paddling pools, playing football, bouncing on the trampoline, camping in the garden, painting patterns on pebbles and also enjoying a family BBQ.
Here are some fantastic photographs that parents have sent me, it is lovely to see you all having fun at home.

Our topic this summer is ‘People Who Help Us – Transport’. This week our activity ideas are focused on the theme of transport and can all be completed in the sunshine. Have a go at making a paper plate vehicle or cardboard tunnels to travel under, you could even make a road trail out of bricks.. You might also like to make one of our transport snacks to eat as a special treat. Most importantly don’t forget to have lots of fun.

Enjoy the Sunshine ☀️

Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine this week. We thought maybe it might be a good time to share some activity ideas linked to the theme of ‘sunshine’. You might like to have a go at crafting, painting, printing or even singing along to some of our favourite sunshine songs. Please feel free to complete some of the ideas shared below and please send any photographs of activities you have completed for us to put on our class blog. The most important activity is not to forget to have lots of fun and try and enjoy the time with your family in the beautiful sunshine. ☀️

‘Hello Everybody’ 👋

A big hello to 🦋 ‘Butterfly class’, we miss you all and are looking forward to a safe time when we can come together again. We have enjoyed hearing about your weekly news and the wonderful activities that you have been doing at home. Please see below some photographs of the adventures your friends have completed during their home learning this week. Our class staff also wanted to share a few things that we have been doing whilst staying safe with our families.

Hope you all have a nice weekend, stay safe and have lots of fun.

Time to Share! 🌈

Well done everybody for getting through another week at home. This week I have heard such lovely news from all our families about what you have been doing whilst you have been safe at home. I have shared a few photographs that I have received below, please feel free to send me any photos you have taken and I will share them for our friends to see on our blog.

This week we wanted to share with you the adventures our class fish have been on over the last few weeks. They have kept busy swimming in their tank and have enjoyed some new flakes Ruth brought from the pet shop. Ruby and Dory are missing their friends very much and look forward to seeing you very soon.

As we are our continuing with our ‘People Who Help Us’ topic, I have shared a few ideas below if you would like to try them at home. I have chosen ‘the dentist’ to concentrate on this week, it is time to show us how brilliant you are at brush you teeth at home.

Please stay safe at home and we are all looking forward to seeing you soon.

VE Day Celebrations

We hope you are all well and safe at home. We are missing you very much and can not wait until we are back together again. It has been wonderful to hear about all the fun you have been having with your families and has made us all smile. I have shared some photographs below for you all to see your friends.
If we were currently at school this week we would be getting ready for our VE Day celebrations. We thought it would still be great if we could celebrate together, but from our own homes. It would be fun if you could make some flag bunting, bake cakes or even have your own garden picnic party. I have included some ideas below if you would like to have a go at celebrating VE Day.
Please do not forget to share your photographs, so that we can celebrate together.

Here is a special message from Bev our music teacher.

We would also like to share a very useful poster that a parent shared with us. It may provide yoUr family with the reassurance you need if you are leaving your house more than once a day for exercise.

Staying Safe at Home!

Hope all our wonderful butterflies are well and are having lots of fun with your families at home. It has been lovely to speak to you and your parents this week and hear about all your adventures. I have included a few photographs for you to see what your friends at home have been doing. Please keep sending in the wonderful photographs for us to share as a class.
This week I thought it would be nice to theme our activity ideas on another important person who helps us everyday – ‘The Postman’. Please feel free to have a go at some of the ideas below, maybe if you are missing your friends you could write or draw them a letter and post it to school for us to share on our return. You could even make a junk model ‘Postman Pat van’ or even have a go at wrapping your own parcel and enjoy a game of pass the parcel.

All the staff at Oakwood send a big hello and miss you very much. We are hoping to be together again soon but in the meantime please stay safe with your families. As a special treat for you please have a look at our school website where you will find a very special song / message from North Star Federation – ‘Lean on me’.

Fun At Home!

Hello to everyone in butterflies, hope you are all well and safe. This week it has been fantastic to hear and see all the wonderful activities you have been completing at home. It makes me very happy to know that you are having so much fun during this time we are not together. I know we are all missing our friends so much, but hopefully the photographs that we share on our class blog will help put a smile back on your face.

This summer term at school we would be starting our topic ‘People Who Help Us’, but why not have a go at home. Below I have shared some activity ideas all about doctors and nurses that you might like to try. Please feel free to have a go, but most importantly stay safe and have lots of fun.

Let’s have fun learning!

I hope you are all staying safe and enjoying time with your families. It has been lovely to continue to hear about all the amazing things you are doing at home.
You are all doing extremely well with engaging in activities that interest you, as well as enjoying playing with your brothers, sisters, Mums and Dads and even having fun in the sunshine. We are very proud of you!
Below, I have put some possible ideas that you might like to do at home linked to your numbers and letters skills. Please feel free to use any of the ideas shared, but most importantly stay safe and healthy.

We have also received some wonderful photographs from parents about what our friends have been up to at home. We are all missing each other such a lot and I think sharing our home experiences is a brilliant way for us to see our friends at this difficult time.

Happy Easter 🐣

All the staff in butterflies wanted to say ‘hello’ and wish you a very ‘Happy Easter’, we miss you all so much. We hope you are safe and well and enjoying lots of chocolate and treats with your families over the bank holiday weekend.

Here are a few ideas of some of the favourite games that we love to play in butterflies, why not have a try of a few over the Easter bank holiday at home. We have also included a favourite simple cake recipe that we enjoy making at school. You could even add some chocolate eggs to make them Easter themed.

Please all stay safe over Easter bank holiday and we are looking forward to hearing all about your adventures.
