Here is the rhyme for you to learn this week:
Star begins with ‘s’ – What else can you find beginning with the ‘s’ sound?
I would like you to have a little think and upload to ‘ClassDojo’ if you can, how you are feeling today? There may be some new feelings below – why not have a think which ones you know and discuss any that you are unsure of yet.
Enjoy 'Little Chick has Lunch on the Moon' with Miss Whiston
Twinkle, Twinkle is one of my daughters favourites, so, she wanted to sing it for you all - See if you can sing along with her.
What is your favourite song?
How many stars are in the jars? Can you count them and have a go at writing the number? Which jar has the most? Which has the fewest? How many altogether? How many jars can you see? What colours can you find?
Can you tell me any worries that you have at the moment? If you could have one wish or you could make anything better, what would it be? You can talk about this to your grown-up for them to write, or have a go at writing one word to express this or you may draw a picture.
Blowing bubbles is meant to be very soothing for children, if you have any, give this a go!...Talk about your worries and blow them away!
Here is 'Wish Upon a Star' - Please listen to the story and see if you can answer the questions after.
'Wish Upon a Star' continued...
Story Time with Mrs Steward
Today at Windy Arbor it is ‘Inside Out Day’ – This means that if you are in school in a ‘bubble’ or learning from home you can wear an item of clothing inside out in support of Children’s Mental Health and Well-being Day.
How do you feel today? Which character would you be?
How many stars are there? What would 1 more be? Can you put them in size order?
Try making some different voice sounds to show different feelings and emotions. You could say “Oh!” if you are surprised, “mmm” if something is yummy, or “Ssh” when you are trying to be quiet. I look forward to seeing which sounds you can think of making to show how you are feeling!
This afternoon is ‘Windy Well-Being afternoon,’ which means, switch off your computers, laptops, tablets, etc. and enjoy some time ‘off-screen’ doing what you enjoy!
You could do some baking
Perhaps you could build a rocket using junk modelling (bottles, toilet roll tubes or boxes) or blocks around you and ‘fly to the sky’ to look at the stars! You might like to take a look up at the stars in the night sky…I wonder how many you might see!
Whatever you choose to do with your 'Windy Well-being afternoon' make sure you have fun!
Afterwards, get your favourite book and snuggle up for a story together!
If you do not have a story book to share, why not try this idea?
Can you create your own version or change any words in the nursery rhyme? What would they be? Would they still rhyme and ‘sound the same?’
