Good morning! We hope you enjoyed yesterday’s activities.
Did you manage to learn our new handwashing song? We practised it in school yesterday, we are getting really good at it! Here are your learning activities for today.
Marvellous Moles Home Learning Tasks:
Today we will be looking at the ‘tch’ sound, we say that this is three letters but one sound.
Use the words match, catch, latch and hatch to play games with your child e.g. What sounds can you hear? Make letter cards and put them in the right order or have a go at writing them in your books. Can you put any of the words into a sentence? Have a go at writing a sentence in your book.
Remember when you make your sound cards to put the ‘tch’ sound on one card.
Our Collective Worship value for today is RESPECT.
Can you remember the part of the slideshow yesterday that showed three friends that were are linked together? At the moment we can’t link arms with our friends, but we can think about them and share our love and respect for them. Can you choose two friends and draw a picture of all three of you together? You could add a message too. Send your picture to your teacher using your class email so that we can print them and display them around school.
PSED - Personal, Social, Emotional Development
We have another lovely story for you to hear today called ‘While We Can’t Hug’. The story is about two friends, Hedgehog and Tortoise, who would love to give each other a big hug, however they aren’t allowed to touch each other. A little bit like us with our friends at the moment. In the story they think of lots of other different ways in which they can show their love for each other.
PD - Physical Development
At my house at Christmas time we often play a fun game called charades. For this game you aren’t allowed to talk, you have to use different actions to give clues as to what you are thinking of. You could try this today with different sports. You could move your arms and kick your legs like you are swimming, you could pretend to save a goal or kick a football like you are a famous football player or you could pretend to shoot some hoops like a basketball player. Will anyone be able to guess your sport?
CL - Communication and Language
As we learnt yesterday in Dr Dog’s story, germs are too small for us to see.
If we had a special piece of equipment called a microscope, which makes things bigger we might be able to see one! What do you think a germ might look like? Have a go at drawing one in your book.
L - Literacy
We have been learning that washing our hands is a very important part of keeping clean and keeping the germs away, but do you carry out all the different steps in the right order? Look at the power point in the link below and see if you are doing it right. If you have a printer you could always print out the picture cards and stick them in your book in the correct order.
M - Mathematical Development
Yesterday we started to learn about doubles. The Number Blocks helped us to do this. Today we would like you to play a game with a grown-up. Ask your grown-up to make a tower with blocks or Lego bricks up to 10. Now you carefully count how many they have used and make one to match. What will you need to do to find out what the double is? Once you have counted them all record doubles to 10 in your books.
Pass the Germ Handwashing Game
You will need a germ picture or a suitable toy that can be passed around the circle.
1. Arrange the children so that they are standing in a circle.
2. Ensure that the children are familiar with the rhyme ‘Ring-a-Ring O’ Roses’.
3. Explain that people tend to sneeze when they get a cold and that colds are caused by germs. Remind the children that by washing their hands regularly they can make sure that germs are washed away and are not passed on to anyone else.
4. Tell the children that they are going to play a game using the rhyme ‘Ring-a-Ring O’ Roses’ but, instead of walking round in a circle, they will pass the germ picture around the circle. Whoever is holding the germ at the end of the rhyme, has to pretend to sneeze and fall down.
5. Repeat the rhyme until there is only one person left standing. They are the winner!
UTW – Understanding the world
Experiment time! You will be amazed to see how many germs live on our hands, they are so tiny you can’t even see them. Today we will investigate to see how clean we really are.
You will need;
Two slices of bread
Two clear food bags
Soap and water
- Rub your unwashed hands on one of the pieces of bread then seal it into one of the bags. Mark it with your name and unwashed.
- Now wash your hands in warm soapy water for 20 seconds and rub your hands on the second piece of bread. Put it into the second bag and seal in and mark it with the label, clean.
- Check the bags daily but don’t open them!
What has happened to the bread that touched your dirty hands?
What does the bread that touched your clean hands look like?
What has grown on the bread that touched your 'unwashed' hands? Where did they come from?
