Activities During Closure

Hi Oak Class! 

 

I hope you're all doing okay. Bob (our class flamingo) has been a little worried that he'll be lonely now that he won't get to see you in class every day so I've decided to bring him home with me. He's asked me if we could post daily updates on our class page so you can see everything he's been up to. He's told me that he will try his best to think of a fun new activity to do everyday and then maybe you can join in too? 

 

So check out this page every morning to see what Bob has been up to and if you can, take pictures of you doing the same things and we can show them to Bob when we make it back to school! 

 

Stay safe and keep washing those hands!

Miss Martin

Day 4 -

How can you be kind to yourself? 

We often think about how we can be kind to others and what effect our behaviour has on other people. Have you ever thought about how you can be kind to yourself? 

Draw some hearts on a piece of paper and write your own ideas about how you can be kind to yourself. Some ideas have been given to start you off. Once you have recorded these ideas, start to think about how you can carry out these ideas and be kind to yourself.

Since it's Friday... Let's get messy! Get that playdough out and see what crazy creatures you can create. 

Whether you want to make your own dinosaur, elephant, car or castle, the possibilities are endless. If you haven't got any Play-Doh it's pretty simple to make your own. All you need is:

  • 2 drops of liquid food colouring

Mix the flour and salt then add the water, oil and food colouring. Knead the mixture well, adding a little more flour if the consistency is too wet.

 

Challenge: Why not make a game out of it? Make some cards with different ideas on, then see which you get. Time yourself and see how quickly you can make it! Challenge your family to make something with you.
