We hope that you read this in Mrs Patterson's weekly newsletter (29.01.2021)
"Wellbeing Wednesday From next week, we will be running Wednesdays as Wellbeing Wednesdays with a screen free day. The idea will be that although there are lessons and activities for children, these won’t require the use of devices and will be practical or handwritten. Some activities will be planned across the age ranges which will hopefully mean children in different year groups in your family can work on them together!"
We have still placed some Wednesday activities (e.g. maths, phonics) on our webpage as we are aware some families need this structure to their day whilst they manage work commitments etc.
Please be aware that there is no expectation for the Wednesday work to be completed, encourage your child to be away from the screen when you can.
Cross age-range activities
Make simple puppets using characters from 'Amazing Airplanes' and retell the story. These could be drawn and stuck on 'finger rings', or make paperbag puppets.
Can you make up the next part of the story?
Where do they visit?
Who do they see?
Get outside and make a map for a walk. This can be done as you walk with a clipboard and pen or make one before you go to follow. If you can't get out make a map of the house and hide some treasure (snack) to find.
Reception Wellbeing Wednesday activities
Challenge your child to play with a toy they haven't looked at since Christmas.
Can you think of a new way to play with it?
Use the Bird watch poster (below) and see what you can identify from a window, use a pair of binoculars or make some with tubes, to help you.
