11 Jan Nursery Remote Learning – w/c 11.01.21
Monday 11th January to Friday 15th 2021
See the video below to listen to ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’
Can you remember the different places the family went before they got to the cave? What was your favourite, was it the thick oozy mud? Did you join in or like to look at the pictures?
Do you think the bear just wanted to play? What would you do if you found a bear in a cave? Did the family do the right thing running away? Watch the video again and pause on the last page. How do you think the bear is feeling?
Listen to Michael Rosen reading We’re Going on a Bear Hunt on the link below.
Michael Rosen is the author of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and he is also a wonderful poet. Your task is to listen to one of his poems every day. You can click on the links below or find your own Michael Rosen poems at www.michaelrosen.co.uk.
Which poem is your favourite? Do some of the poems make you want to move around? Can you invite someone to listen to the poem with you? Tell someone your favourite words or parts Which parts make you laugh or smile?
Act out We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. You can do this with toys or real people, in your house or at the park or in the garden. Here are a few ideas but don’t forget to add “We’re not scared” or “you can’t go over it, you can’t go under it” into your stories.
What did you use to tell the story? Did you get all the events in the right order? Did everyone get home safely? Did you change the end of the story? Did you add new people or animals (characters) into the story?
We would love to see your version of the story on EvidenceMe.
See below to see Katy’s nature walk, and how to make a copy of a paw print:
Katy and Max found prints in the mud but you can find prints and tracks everywhere. Look out for different tracks on the ground when you go on your walk or hand and finger prints in your house, have a look on mirrors, shiny surfaces in the bathroom or kitchen or on your windows.
Maybe you have a pet that leaves footprints or a brother or sister that makes footprints when they get out of the bath. Can you find some tyre marks? What footprints and handprints can you see? Who do you think made these footprints and where do you think the footprints are going? Look out for animal or bird footprints in your local park, take a photo or make a drawing.
Have a look at the different footprints below, Katy used these to try and find out whose footprints she found in the woods. Can you draw a giant footprint? Does it have claws? Long thin toes? Huge squishy pads? Have a go at cutting out your giant footprint or ask someone to help you cut it out. Hide the footprint somewhere. Can you challenge someone to find it? Can you give them some clues to help them find where it is hidden?
Grumpy Bear wants to spend a night in the woods.
Can you help him pack a bag for his adventure? What does he need to take? What food does he need to eat? Will he need something to drink? Where will he sleep? How will he keep warm? He has written a basic list, but can you pack a bag at home with all the things he might need, draw a picture of what he puts in his bag, record or tell a grown up what he should take. What would you say to Grumpy Bear before he sets off on his adventure?
Katy has built a den. Build a den somewhere in your house using pillows, cushions, and blankets. How did you make it? What do you do in your den? Could you invite someone into your den to listen to a story, sing a song, listen to music, have a snack or have a sleep?
Watch the video below to listen to ‘Ruby’s Worry’, a story about a little girl called Ruby who learns how important it is to talk about her worries:
This video shows this weeks maths problem:
What is your guess? Can you tell someone your guess (estimate)? Can you draw how many or ask someone to photograph your guess? (Find out the solution next week!)
This week’s science investigation is about exploring bicarbonate of soda and vinegar, watch our video to see what happens!
Have a go at doing these two experiments at home. Did you guess what was going to happen? What did you see, hear or smell when the liquid and powder mixed together? Can you add more vinegar or more baking powder? What patterns did you create? Can you tell someone about your experiment, explaining what you did and how it worked?
If you are missing nursery playdough, here is the recipe and instructions. Could you add some colours, textures or smells?
(Note – If kept in an airtight container the playdough can last for up to two weeks.)
How to make the Nursery Playdough
You will need:
• 1 cup of flour • 1 cup of warm water • ½ cup of salt • 2 tbs oil • 3 tsp cream of tartar • 1 tsp of food colouring (optional)
1. Place all the ingredients in a pan
2. Cook over a high heat, stirring constantly
3. The dough will start to clump together
4. Once the dough is no longer sticky, tip it out onto a flat surface with a little flour and kneed for a short time.
Sing along to five of our favourite nursery songs:
Send us some pictures or recordings of your favourite songs and rhymes and we will record them over the next few weeks. Please ask brothers, sisters and pets (even over excited pets like my dog Berty!!!) to join in.
Grumpy Bear needed some flat breads to take into the woods on his adventure, follow this basic recipe (see below) they are simple to make, do not need any yeast, are cooked in a pan and make a good lunch.
Think about your favourite type of bread. Do your friends, family and neighbours have a favourite recipe for making dough? Is it different from Grumpy Bear’s flatbread? Draw or photograph your finished bread or your favourite type of bread. What does it taste like? Ask your family to taste it. Can they describe it? Do you eat the bread on its own or does it taste best with something on top, wrapped inside or dipped in something? Test your grown up and ask them to tell you the ingredients you used to make your bread.
Easy Yogurt Flatbreads
Easy Yoghurt Flatbread made with just 2 ingredients and barely any kneading required! Ready in minutes.
• 1 cup natural yoghurt • 1 cup self raising flour • extra flour for dusting or if it gets a little too sticky!
1. In a bowl combine the yoghurt and flour until mostly mixed together.
2. Dust the bench lightly with the extra flour and tip mixture out onto bench.
3. Knead for about 5 minutes or until the dough comes together. It will start out quite crumbly with bits all over the bench, but as you knead it, pick those extra bits up and after about 5 minutes it will come together to form a smooth dough.
4. Break off small balls and roll out flat with a flour dusted rolling pin.
5. Place a dry fry pan (no oil) over med-high heat and shake off any excess flour, then place a bread into the fry pan. After about a minute it will start to bubble up just slightly, flip over and cook for about the same time on the other side.
6. Use a dry tea towel or cloth, to wipe out any flour from the fry pan between breads as this will start to burn.
