🇬🇧VE Day preparations

Hello Rabbit class, we hope you are all well and being good for your Mommies and Daddies. It has been great to hear your news and see your photos of you having fun in your gardens, playing with bubbles and reading your stories.
We are all missing you very much and cannot wait until we are all back together again. If we were currently at school, we would have been busy getting ready for our VE day celebrations. It is such a shame this will not happen, but we would still like to try and get us all to celebrate if possible.

It would be really nice if we could still celebrate, by having a picnic at the same time in our gardens or indoors if you prefer. It would be great if the children could have a go at preparing some of their own snacks or sandwiches too.

I have added some craft ideas below if you want to have a go at making some decorations!

Please join us in celebrating 75 years since VE day by having a picnic in your garden. Don’t forget to take some photos!
Twinkl have some great colouring sheets that we will try and send home for you to decorate.
Bev our music teacher misses you too and wants to send her best wishes to you all, she has been busy practising her drums and has even put her Rabbit toy in her window for her neighbours to spot on their daily walks. She is also going to help find some nice music for us to listen to for our VE day picnics. Thank you Bev!

Outdoor learning 🌸☀️🌺🌜⭐️

Hi Rabbit Class🐰,
We hope you are all okay, keeping safe and had a happy Easter 🐣 with your families.
As the weather is going to be sunny this week, please find some new ideas for some outdoor learning and messy play ideas. We hope you have fun with them.

Have fun getting messy In the garden- how about making some rainbow 🌈 foot prints, a petal perfume or flower potion? You could also help your Mommies and Daddies by mark making using rollers on the pavement outside (cleaning in the process!)
Have fun mixing up some mud and dandelion pies, adding water and giving it a stir to develop your coordination and fine motor skills.
Lots of sensory opportunities to be had using water balloons; using scented or coloured water, freezing them and feeling them melt. Practise your life skills, cleaning your own t-shirts, washing the bubbles off. Build up your tolerance to different textures and practise your balance by walking on slippery mixtures. Help develop your speech and language skills by learning to blow bubbles or drinking through a straw.

This week you may get to see some shooting stars 🌠 if you look up to the sky at night- it needs to be a clear night with no clouds. Please let us know if you see anything.

Saint George’s Day 23.4.2020

It is St George’s Day this week too. Please find some ideas below to help support learning at home.

If your child is missing their Friday cooking sessions and would like to have a go at some baking, here is a tasty recipe for lemon yoghurt muffins supported by images and simple instructions for you to try at home.

Lockdown – week 3

Hello Rabbits,
We are all missing you very much but glad to hear that you are all keeping safe at home and have been managing to keep yourselves entertained and busy.
Please find some suggested activities and links below that you may find useful this week:

How about a family salt dough hand print activity? Or making a milk carton bird feeder? Or thank our wonderful NHS by making some beautiful rainbows with a pot of gold at the end. Have fun and be inventive!

These are some of the songs we’ve been using in school before our lives were turned upside down:

In Sarah’s house we had fancy dress Friday while we did our Joe Wickes work out. We then undid all our hard work by eating chocolate brownies that we had made. We have been learning some new life skills, mixing cement and putting up a new fence that the naughty storm blew down!
