Home Learning Journey

Another fantastic week of exploring and lots of wonderful outdoor activities in our beautiful sunshine 🌞
Children learn best by first hand experience in activities that they have chosen and it is evident from all of our lovely conversations that all our ladybirds have been given these opportunities at home. I am so proud of everyone!
β€œ Play is our brains favourite way of learning”

Keep up the good work everyone and the photos 😊❀️🐞

We miss you so much!

Home Learning journeys continue 😍

Some more fabulous photos of wonderful activities at home, the children are continuing to explore and engage and learn new things everyday, well done ladybirds 🐞 Oscar is having lots of fun outside with his swimming pool and slide. He is doing lots of lovely mark making with his sister and exploring on his daily walks. David is also enjoying the outdoors, exploring sand and riding in his lovely car, he is sharing these experiences with his sister.

Let’s get on track ….πŸš—πŸšŒπŸš˜πŸš‚

Weekend challenge Ladybirds 🐞 ,

Have a go at making a track for our cars, trains and other transport. Perhaps you would prefer to race you people figures or animals so create a path instead. This can be simple using chalk or tape or you could create the track with Lego or piece of cardboard. Take a look at the ideas below. Please send photos to my email if you take on the challenge and we can share these with everyone on the blog.

Have a good weekend, most of all keep safe and have fun!❀️

Home Learning journeys 😁

Hello Ladybirds ,
Fantastic activities and exploration as always, massive well done to everyone for keeping positive and encouraging our home learning during these uncertain times. We continue to enjoy lots of lovely sensory exploration , Riley had a great idea, he used his cake mix to explore his peppa pig figures, so much fun! Oliver and Christopher have had lots of fun in the garden , baked cakes and made bunting to celebrate VE Day.
Harmony has enjoyed walks with her brother and explored books from her book shelf.

Just wonderful ladybirds 🐞😊

Let’s Celebrate πŸŽ‰

Let’s celebrate our heroes of the Second World War this Friday! Maybe you might fancy a family picnic in the garden or inside too, you could even set it up on a trampoline or in a tent. If you have some balloons have a go at throwing and catching them or watching them fall through the air. Have a try at making a Union Jack cake or just enjoy eating one from the shop, perhaps you would prefer creating your own red, white and blue bunting with paint finger prints. Something sensory might be a good idea too, coloured rice or shaving foam to get messy.
I know we have to stay home but a celebration could be just what we need, celebrate however you like and most off all have fun together!❀️
Stay Safe everyone πŸ‘β€οΈ

Home Learning Journeys continue

I am so proud of all the lovely things that everyone is engaging with at home, massive well done to all the mommy’s and daddy’s for all their hard work in preparing and providing such lovely activities. Keep going everyone , you are amazing!😊❀️

Let’s get sensory with Ice and water play!

Hello Everyone, thinking of you all lots, let’s get sensory this week and try out some ice or water play.

There are so many ways to explore water and I know lots of you have enjoyed paddling pools and bubbles these last few weeks so I know you will love these ideas 😊

You can add all sorts of things to water like mini plastic animals, plastic figures, plastic fish or food colouring/ paint, then put them into containers and place in the freezer. The next day you will have hours of fun exploring the cold , smooth texture of the ice and you could even help the animals or fish escape by making the ice warm so it melts. You can then play in the water with your plastic figures.
If you really want to get you senses going you can add colour, items with a scent ( lemon, lime, flowers etc) , items with texture and even edible items so you can taste them too.

Take a look at these ideas and get started! Have fun children!

Birdhouse challenge

Massive well done to Oscar and his sister for making this fantastic birdhouse today, I love the blue paint that you have used. I wonder if any of our animals friends will visit this house? Let’s hope so!

Fun Friday Challenge 😁

Hello everyone, happy Friday , I hope you have all had a lovely week in the sunshine.

How about a little challenge?
Can you make an insect hotel or a bird feeder for your outside space? They are very simple to make and you only need a recycled plastic bottle or a milk carton to get you started. Take a look at these ideas I have found but please feel free to come up with your own. Make them look fun , put them outside and then watch as our insect and bird friends come to play. Please take a photo and send it over to me, we can then share these next Friday πŸ‘

This is a fab way to get the children to engage and explore living things.
Challenge is on! Have fun and be safe

love Lisa 😊
