Moss Park Infants Easter Egg Decorating Challenge!

You can complete this challenge any way you choose! We would love to see what you create on twitter! If you upload a picture don't forget to Tag @MossParkInfants 

 

(Below you will find more Easter and spring activity ideas)

 

 

Easter activities

We hope you are enjoying your Easter break and having lots of fun with your family! Below you will find more ideas for some challenges, activities and games!

 

Read 1 book a day (Or more!)

You could try reading it in a new place each day!

 

Make a den! Make sure you ask your grown ups what you can use to make this!

It could be a great place to tell stories...

 

 

Take part in an egg and spoon race!...You could even organise your own sports day! 

 

 

Potato printing patterns! Think about what colours and shapes you can use to create your pattern. Sponges and other hard vegetables can be great for printing in different shapes too!

 

 

Make a fairy potion! Remember to check with your grown ups what you can put into it! You could even have a go at writing your fairy recipe down!

 

 

I have been hearing more and more birds singing every day! Could you make a bird feeder to put in your garden or outside your window?

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/makes/bird-feeder

 

I wonder if you get any little visitors! Maybe you could find out what they are called and have a go at drawing them?

 

 

Make a nature book! Could you fill each page with something you can see in your garden or out of your window?

This week I have seen blossom, birds and a bumblebee!

You could have a go at labelling your picture and if you want an extra challenge write a fact about each thing you have seen! This could be a project to work on over the week.

 

Easter Activities!

We hope that you are all staying safe and enjoying each other's company. Below you will find a selection of Easter and spring activities to have a go at at your own leisure. 

Enjoy!

 

Could you make a fairy garden? 

 

 

Could you dissect a flower to discover all of it's different parts?

 

Could you make a blossom tree picture? You could use broccoli to make it like this one!

 

 

Making transient art Easter egg patterns!

 

 

Painting flowers using forks! Or maybe you could use something else that is not a paint brush?

 

 

Could you do an observational drawing of a Daffodil or other flower/plant? Like we practised in the Atelier at school!

 

 

Go on a bug hunt in the garden! You could make a bug hunt for someone in your family. What can they find?

 

Making chocolate nests! There are lots of recipes online, but here is one suggestion:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/eastereggnests_93841

 

 

Making Easter or spring bunting for your house!

 

 

Make a self portrait using natural materials!

 

 

Make an Easter card for someone in your family. Is there someone you can't see at the moment? Maybe you could make them a card and write them a special message inside?

 

 

 

 

Below you will find a link to even more ideas for learning at home!

heart YOU ARE OUTSTANDING!  heart

Topic Learning

You can make a healthy sandwich, butter your own toast (with supervision) bake a cake or ice a biscuit. 

You can find so many easy ideas on the internet too. 

 

You can post your ideas on Twitter if you wish. 

Don't forget to ask your grown up first before using tools. 

 

                                                

 

  Don't forget to have a brain break and play in the sunshine.

 

At 10am there is a virtual tour of Chester zoo on their Facebook page!

 

 

English

Thinking about our mother's day sentences last week.

Can you write a note to your grown up? 

For example -

I love my mum. 

My mum is the best. 

My dad is fab. 

my gran is smart 

 

What do you think is missing from the last sentence?

 

You can think of your own sentences too!

 

 

After lunch it's GOLDEN TIME!

Time to reflect on your favourite activity this week 

What did you like best?

Have you put a smiley face on your chart? 

Tell us what you have enjoyed so we can keep posting exciting learning just for you. 

 

Choose an activity from the following 

Make a den outdoors 

Watch your favourite film 

Have a picnic with your teddies 

Do a special job for someone in your family

Play with your favourite toys

 

 

Maybe you can do even more than one!

 

Next week 

We will be posting some Easter Art challenges that you can try at home.

No pressure, just for fun!

Good Morning Reception 

We hope you're enjoying the beautiful sunshine! Please remember that above are some websites for daily exercise and physical development!

 

Phonics -

 

You can use the phonics flash cards in your home learning pack to hide around the house and go on a sound hunt! This will help you recap before we focus on one sound today.

 

Yesterday we looked at the digraph 'oo' 

 

Today we can make a list with the same digraph 

 

Can you write a list of the words  - moon, zoom, boom

You can write this in your workbook?

 

To extend this activity you could also do another list using the diagraph 'oa' from Monday - boat, goat, toad

 

If you have mastered writing words now have a go at writing a sentence

They can zoom to the moon. 

 

What does your sentence need? Remember the high 5 rule

Capital letter, finger space, sound it out, full stop, read it back 

Finally draw a picture of yourself zooming to the moon 

 

To extend this activity you could also write some more sentences using 'oo' and 'oa'- she is at the zoo, we go in the boat, I like to see the moon

 

Below are some extra phonic resources to practice. We have learnt so far in school

Maths 

Estimation 

 

Can you gather some objects around the house and put them in a jar or on a tray. Ask your grown up how many do they see in the without counting. You can check how many and take turns to play the game. You can use different amounts and different objects. 

 

Make up your own game or create and estimation station as in the image. 

 

Knowledge and Understanding of the World 

 

I know that some children have already created Rainbows at home to put in windows and make passers by smile!

Can you find out how a rainbow forms? Ask your gown up if you can research this together.  

What colours make a rainbow? Here are some more creative ideas to spark your imagination.

 

 

 

 

Below is a link for an experiment to make you own REAL rainbow using water! Can you have a go?

TUESDAY - 25.3.20

 

We hope that you were able to access all of the learning resources yesterday and had some fun with the activities!

 

Phonics (Letters and sounds we are learning) -

 

If you follow the link to 'phonics play' and use the following log in details you will be able to access the full site free of charge:

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/index.htm

Username: march20
Password: home

 

Once on the site you can select 'phase 3' and have a go at recapping phase 2 and set 6,7, 8 and 9 of phase 3 on 'Flash cards'. 

 

If you find your child is not recognising some of the letters/sounds you can spend some more time focusing on them.

- You could cut out some of the flash cards provided in your home learning pack to make a sound hunt around the house.

- You can select the letters that they need to practice on the games 'Obb and Bob' and 'Buried Treasure' where they can practice reading words that feature the specific sounds.

- You could use the flash cards in the home learning pack to build some words.

 

Today we will focus on the diagraph 'oo'. You can use 'Geraldine Giraffe' videos on youtube to help introduce this sound https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfMKV_9agiY

Have a go at reading some 'oo' words on the games 'Obb and Bob' or 'Buried Treasure' on the phonics play site.

Now can you have a go at writing your own 'oo' words? (soon, moon, loop) Maybe you could draw some pictures to match!

Find the 'sentences' game on the phase 3 page of phonics play and select 'oo' - Have a go at reading the sentences. Can you hide them and have a go at writing them yourself? Don't forget to use finger spaces between your words, capital letters at the beginning of your sentence and a full stop at the end! 

 

Maths -

Addition

 

Below you will see a 'part, part, whole' model. In reception we have used these to solve addition problems and find a total! Can you draw a 'part part whole' frame and use it to to solve some problems with things around the house? (once again this can be absolutely anything! Pasta, sweets, small toys)

 

Take it in turns with someone in your family to make a problem by putting some objects in each of the 'part' sections. Can they show you how many there are altogether by writing the total in the 'whole' section?

 

 

Can you record/write your addition as a sum? (for example, 4+2=6)

 

 

 

Expressive Art and Design/PSE:

 

When people can't go to school and work, sometimes they start to feel a bit sad. To cheer people up, people all over the country have been making rainbows and putting them in their window. If you have a rainbow in your window it might make someone smile when they go past!

 

Could you have a go at making a rainbow? You can do it however you like! You could even write a message on their too! Here are some ideas:

 

 

If you make a rainbow we would LOVE to see it! Can you share a picture with us on Twitter?

 

 

Story time

 

Time to get cosy for a story! You can read one of your books at home with your grown ups or family.

 

Can you talk about who the characters are? Where is the story set? How are the characters feeling?

 

Below is a story all about Spring for you to enjoy too. Maybe you will notice some features of spring in the illustrations?

MONDAY - 23.3.20

 

Good Morning Reception! We hope you have had a restful weekend with your family. Below you will find some suggestions of what you could get upto today!

 

Phonics (Letters and sounds we are learning) -

Have a go at reading some 'oa' words on the games 'Obb and Bob' or 'Buried Treasure' also on the phonics play site.

Now can you have a go at writing your own 'oa' words? (goat, boat, toad, road) Maybe you could draw some pictures to match!

Finally have a go at writing a sentence featuring some 'oa' words and some tricky words (The goat was in her boat, My toad is in his road) Maybe you can think of some more!

 

Maths -

 

Addition

 

In reception we LOVE the adding with a pirate song! You will find this video on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WT_wvvEvkw4

 

After following the video and problem solving with the pirate maybe you could do some addition around the house! You can use anything to add two groups together and find the total! (apples and bananas...spoons and forks...different coloured socks!) It is even more exciting if you can get outside and find natural objects to add together!

 

Can you to try to write down your addition sum? (For example, 3 apples and 7 bananas would look like 3+7=10)

 

 

Science/Knowledge and Understanding of the World:

 

Friday was the first day of Spring! Can you go on a Spring hunt in the garden or on your street?

What signs of spring can you see?

Can you make your own 'Spring Checklist'? (see picture for ideas)

Maybe you could take some pictures of flowers you see and try to find out what they are called?

Could you draw some pictures of what you have seen?

Could you label your pictures?

Could you write some sentences about spring (I have seen ...) 

 

The government have advised you can go for a walk outdoors if you stay more than 2 metres from others. Please make sure you follow these precautions.

 

 

Wind down/story time/songs:

 

Can you snuggle up and read a story to your mouse or another toy? Below is the story 'Where the Wild Things are' that we recently learnt at school ... maybe you could listen to it and then have a go at re-telling it to your family?

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0e60UOHskk

 

 Parents/carers,

 Remember these are suggestions of what to do at home, feel free to explore the resources we have provided at your own pace and take lots of breaks.

 

You are doing a wonderful job!
