Atlas Class Everyday tasks Tuesday 19th May 2020 ( 19.5.2020)
Today and all week we will be doing some active learning .
Having spoken to parents last week, I realised that many children in my class simply need to do something different. So I am going to suggest 3 FUN activities to try each day. Hope you enjoyed all the activities yesterday.
Activity 1- STRONGEST GIANT
Investigate how strong your bones are.
What you need:- some very heavy things to lift or carry e.g. bag of potatoes, bag of say 10+ tins, box of books etc
- YOU DECIDE HOW to carry push or lift the object or bag- make your muscles work hard like a giant! The more you use them the stronger they get.
- Can you carry your bag ( box/ object) all around the house without putting it down?
- Can you hold it for 10 (or 20 or 30) seconds?
- Can you lift it above your head? [ Take care not to bump it on your head!]
- Can you hold it out in front of you with your arms stretched out?
- Can you lay down on your back and balance it on your feet?
- Draw a picture of it in your Home learning book and say/ write what you did.
Activity 2- POSTMAN PAT
Investigate how many sounds (a-z) you can POST.
What you need:-all your sounds in your brown envelope, and a cardboard box, scissors
- Make a slit in the box, big enough to post your sounds into
- Can you turn all your sound cards upside down and take one at a time, turn it over, say the sound and post it through your post-box?
- Can you decorate your post box? Will you dress up as a postman? Can you put your sounds in a bag and pretend you are a postman. Empty the postbox and deliver them to someone in your family? Maybe you can write note to your family to?
Activity 3 –MESSY MUD PIE
Investigate how much water you need to make a perfect mud pie
What you need:-soil, water a plastic cup or bucket or empty yogurt pot , a spade or old spoon to dig soil
- Go outside and dig up some soil so you have a little pile to use
- Use your pot( bucket or old plastic pot ) – fill HALF of it with soil and the add water. Tip it out ( like making a sandcastle) Did it make a good mud-pie?
- Do it again- does it need more water or less water?
- Does it need more soil or less soil?
- Keep trying and making your mud-pies and find out how much soil or water you need to make a perfect mud-pie.
- The best bit about making mud –pies is squashing it down flat afterwards with your hands.
- Remember to wash your hands afterwards!
