UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD/EXPRESSIVE ARTS AND DESIGN
Watch the story of ‘Bumps in the Night’ again. In the story the skeleton dog gets painted all different colours and patterns. Use the sheet in your pack to paint or colour the dog with different colourful patterns.
UTW and Creative Activity 2
In our Jigsaw curriculum we are working on Puzzle 4 – Healthy Me
Think about the activities you did in the last session. (jumping, hopping, skipping, running etc). Can you remember what happened to your heart beat? Why is it important to exercise? Try doing something energetic for a few minutes again. Try and notice how your body changes.
Now, lie down on your back with your hands on your tummy. Feel your tummy go up and down as you breathe in and out.Stretch your body as long as you can. Let your body relax and go floppy. Breathe in and imagine your body filling with air. Breathe out and go floppy. Sit up gently and have a big stretch. How do you feel?
WELL BEING WEDNESDAY
THE STAR FAMILY CHALLENGE
Over the past few weeks there has been lots of wonderful learning about the world, completed both in the academy and at home. Now, here is a chance for the whole family to get creative and tell us everything you know about the world.
This could be something close to HOME, the city of LONDON, the country of ITALY, the continent of NORTH AMERICA or even one of your own family holidays! It could be the food, the clothes, the land, the language, the customs – anything you’ve learnt. And it doesn’t have to be just writing – it could use any art or crafts that reveal what you know. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Please note, this can be completed instead of one of the afternoon activities for the children and is an opportunity to work on something together.
We will be supplying some materials to get you and your family started including some sugar paper, an outline of the world, etc. – but the rest is up to you! They can be collected with the remote learning packs on Monday.
Be as creative as you like. After all the family have finished their challenge, please upload your creation to ClassDojo so we can all share in what you’ve come up with.
