Morning my lovely Zebras! Today is my birthday and we would usually make a birthday cake in school during cookery. Have a go at following a recipe and making your own cake with your parents!

Take some photographs of you demonstrating the different signs. I would love to see them!

Good morning everyone!
Phonics-This week our letter sound is 'o'. Watch and join in with the jolly phonics 'o' song below and say out loud 'o' whilst doing the action. Complete the 'O' workbook that was sent home in your work pack.
Remind the children how they have used clay and plasticine to make models and faces.
Look at photographs of sea creatures and encourage the children to name and describe their colours and shapes e.g. yellow body, round head, long, wiggly legs etc. You could use some of the sea animals from the picture uploaded yesterday.
Ask the children to decide what sort of sea creature they would like to make.
Use some play dough and try to make a sea creature, manipulating it into different shapes (balls, sausage shapes) then join the pieces together to create your creature.
Use any tools to make marks on the body of the animal.
If you are struggling with this at home, you could always draw a sea creature and colour it in, ready to make in school.
Here are some videos below that may help you make a play dough sea creature.__PRESENT
Hello Zebras, it is finally Friday!
Phonics-Our letter sound is 'o'. Can you write some 'o' letters on a piece of paper. This is one of the easier letters to form.
Complete the 'I Spy o' sheet in your work pack. Now have a look around your house and see if you can find any objects beginning with the 'o' sound. Take some photographs of what you have found.
Challenge - Play the Buried treasure' game on phonicsplay sorting words into real and nonsense.
Geography-We have looked at different weathers in geography so far and we focused on snow the last time we were in school and experienced playing in the snow. Now we are going to be looking at rain and the changes in the environment when it rains.
Can you remember what the Makaton sign is for rain?Have a go and show your parents.
Listen and join in with the 'Singing in the rain' song below.
Think about how does the rain make you feel?
What type of clothing and footwear should we wear when it is raining? Have a go at drawing these ?(wellies, umbrella)
Golden Time-We usually have golden time on a Friday afternoon so choose something that makes you happy and relaxed. You could play a game, watch a favourite movie, colour in, listen to music, do some arts and crafts or relax and chill, ready for a busy week ahead in school.
I look forward to seeing you all next week and don't forget to send me any photographs of you completing the activities!
Have a lovely weekend,
