TOP TIPS ON HANDWASHING:
- Count for 20 seconds as you wash your hands after holding someones hands, after you've been to the toilet, after handling animals and before you eat!
- Sing happy birthday twice to ensure hands are fully cleaned.
- Follow the instructions above for guidance.
Here are some great videos to make kids aware of the importance of washing hands and for a gentle explanation to the Coronavirus.
Welcome back online everybody and a very happy New Year to you all! We hope you had as safe and happy a holiday as possible in these difficult circumstances and we are looking forward to getting stuck into our Spring 1 learning - our topic for this half term is 'SPLASH!' - please see below for our curriculum mind map and parent newsletter.
Book of the week (wb 01/02/2021 ):
Surprising Sharks by Nicola Davies
This week we are looking at a fantastic non-fiction text all about sharks - it is called Surprising Sharks because it asks us to look at sharks in a slightly different way and asks the question, who should really be afraid - humans of sharks or sharks of humans?
The book introduces us to many different sharks and is bursting with facts and information. Do you know what a non-fiction text is? How is it different to a story book or picture book?
When you have listened to the story, have a look at the Surprising Sharks ideas pdf above and see if you can have a go at some of the activities.
Can you make a little origami book (template below) and fill it with shark facts? Can you write down words to describe a shark? Can you draw your own picture of a shark and label all his features/parts or write down what he might be thinking? Can you have a go at the shark song or shark yoga?
We have lots of fun shark and ocean themed crafts for you to have a go at too so take a look and see what you would like to try this week:)
We can't wait to see what ideas you come up with - have fun!
Have you ever wanted to find out more about sharks? Now is your chance! Take a look at all the videos below and here are a couple of websites for you to get started with:

Don't forget to write your name on your poster, and if you can write a few key words on your poster or a sentence describing your poster.
We will continue reviewing all our numbers 1-20 this week but will also start to take a look at money, coin amounts and the different ways we can make amounts, e.g. 5p can be 5 x 1p, 2p + 2p + 1p, 2p = 1p + 1p etc. There are lots of resources below to get you started.

We have been reflecting and thinking about how wonderful it is that we are all different and yet all the same in so many ways too.
