Every week we would like you to write a diary entry in the exercise book we gave you, about something you have done at home. We look forward to reading them when you are back at school.
You could even ask your grown up to photograph your writing and put it on the blog so we can see what you are doing. The teachers will be sharing with you on the blog what they are up to as well.
Designing a playground
This week we will be designing, drawing and labelling our own playgrounds.
We would like you to start researching playground equipment and decide what you would like in your playground.
There are some powerpoints to give you some ideas of equipment you could include in your playground. You may have other ideas that you would also like to include.
Think about when you go to the park. What piece of equipment is your favourite? Why?
Is there anything you would like to add to the playground you go to?
What material is the equipment made out of? Why do you think it is made from that material?
With your grown ups help, you may want to use the internet to see what other pieces of equipment you could include in your playground.
Start collecting ideas and we will start designing our playgrounds later in the week.
Time to design your playground
Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child states that all children have the right to play.
Did you know that not all children have a safe place to play? If you could design the perfect playground, so all children had a safe place to play, what would it look like?
Here are some key questions to think about before designing your playground:
You can draw your playground on a piece of paper, colour it in and label it. You can be as imaginative as you wish. Your teachers have designed their own playgrounds too. Mrs Wombell has created a wild garden as a quiet space in her playground and has included tunnels to climb through. What will your playground have in it?
Miss Campbell has designed a beautiful playground too. The swing looks like lots of fun and she has trees to create shade to protect us from the sun.
Remember to read at least 3 times a week.
Click on the link below to access lots more free eBooks with Bug Club Phonic books.
Use the phonic sheets we sent home or the powerpoint below to practising saying all the phase 2 and 3 sounds we have learnt in school. How many do you know?
To help decide which phonic activities are appropriate for your child ask them whose phonic group they are in.
If they are with Miss Turner, Mrs Atkinson or Miss Campbell you need to select the phase 3 activities.
If they are with Mrs Wombell, Mrs Anderson or Miss Meek you need to select the phase 2 activities.
Hope this helps.
