18 Jan Nursery Remote Learning – w/c 18.01.21
Monday 18th to Friday 22nd January 2021
Thank you so much for all your fantastic work, we have been looking at it on Evidence Me, please keep uploading models, pictures, photos, drawings, videos and comments. Click below to find out more:
Listen to Little Rabbit Foo Foo by Michael Rosen and Arthur Robins:
Do you think the good fairy was right to turn Rabbit Foo Foo into a goonie?
If you were the good fairy, what would you have done with Rabbit Foo Foo?
Can you remember who he bopped on the head first? (you can always go back and watch the video – as many times as you want!)
Who came next?
Which type of animals were third to get bopped?
Who was last to get bopped by Rabbit Foo Foo?
Katy made her own Good Fairy Puppet to tell the story. Can you make a puppet choosing one of the characters? It could be Rabbit Foo Foo, the Good Fairy, Field mice, wiggly worms, tigers or goblins.
We would love to see your puppets on Evidence Me. It does not have to look exactly like the picture in the book or be perfect. Try and do as much of the drawing, building, cutting and sticking as you can (grown-ups remember it is the process not the product that is important.)
For a super simple puppet all you need is a large envelope and lots of imagination.
Listen to Michael Rosen reading Little Rabbit Foo Foo: Little Rabbit Foo Foo read by Michael Rosen
Think about what the goonie did next. Did he say sorry?
Did he continued to go “bopping”
Did he ever turn back into Little Rabbit Foo Foo?
Can you draw, record, act out or tell your grown up what you think happen to the goonie?
The goonie in this story has been made up, invented by Michael Rosen and Arthur Robbins the author and illustrator of this book. Could you invent a pretend house for a pretend goonie?
What sort of home would they have?
Is it above or below the ground?
Do they live alone or with other creatures?
Does the home have different rooms, a garden, balcony, goonie-swimming pool, playground, toilet?
Do they have neighbours, next door or upstairs?
Does the goonie go to goonie-school, goonie-hospital or the goonie-café?
Build a home (or even a town) for a goonie. You could use:
- recycled materials
- blocks or Lego
- packets and tins from your cupboard
- pillows, blankets or clothes
We would love to see pictures or drawings of your design.
Little Rabbit Foo Foo keeps making the wrong choices and finds it really difficult to stop bopping creatures on the head.
Do you think he had enough warnings from The Good Fairy?
Can you think of a time when it was difficult for you, or someone in your family like a brother or sister, to understand and follow the rules?
Sometimes we feel frustrated, angry or sad. We might be feeling like this because we can’t go out, go to nursery and spend time with our friends. Click on this link: (‘David Gets in Trouble’ by David Shannon) to hear about a boy called David, who like Little Rabbit Foo Foo, keeps getting into trouble for doing the wrong thing.
Click on the video below to see this weeks’ maths problem:
Did you have a go at last weeks problem? What was your guess (estimate?)
These are the marbles that were in the jar laid out for you to count.
Was your guess close? Did you guess more than 9? or Less than 9?
Did anyone estimate or guess the right amount?
Does it matter if our guesses are wrong?
This week Katy is experimenting with what happens when you mix:
Click on this link to see what happens:
Don’t forget to ask big brothers and sisters and little ones to join in.
Can you explain to someone what happened?
Can you ask someone to guess what happens when you mixed full-fat milk, wash-up liquid and food colouring?
Thank you for recording your songs and rhymes. Here are five more songs to sing along to.
Some children wanted to know if Katy can hear you joining in. That is a great question, what do you think?
On this week’s nature walk, Katy will take you to see her favourite tree in the forest.
Can you find a favourite tree on your road? At the park? On your daily walk?
Photograph your favourite tree.
Think about why you chose that tree.
Think about what makes your tree special.
Is it the leaves?
What does it feel like?
Could you draw a simple map so someone else could visit your tree?
Take some small pieces of tin foil on your walk. Make a tin foil impression of some tree bark. Here are some examples.
Can you spot the bumpiest or the smoothest trees in your road or park?
Cooking this week is a simple THREE INGREDIENT biscuit recipe:
What shapes can you see?
Can you spot any animal shapes?
Can you find some number shapes?
What shape biscuits will you make?
Grumpy Bear enjoyed his night time adventure in the forest.
He enjoyed it so much he asked Katy to read this night time story in the forest.
Listen out for any night time sounds you can hear.
Do you have any favourite stories that are set at night time?
Can you make up a night time story for Grumpy Bear? Perhaps it is set in the forest or maybe somewhere else?
Does it have characters that only come out at night?
If you enjoyed Grumpy Bear’s night time story, you may like to listen to some owl sounds:
