Click here to listen to Katy read This is the Bear by Sarah Hayes and Helen Craig
Why do you think dog put Fred in the bin?
Can you imagine one of your toys was lost?
Where would you find them?
How would you rescue them?
In nursery we would usually be learning some simple Makaton signs. Click here to learn 10 really useful Makaton signs:
Here is a word document containing each sign to practice them at home.
Click here to watch This is the Bear with the Makaton signs.
The bear in this story gets put in the rubbish bin by Fred the dog. Click here to see some “rubbish art” by Katy using recycled cardboard, paper, tin foil and some paint.
Did you use your paper to make shapes, stripes or patterns?
What colours did you choose?
Do you have a favourite part of your print?
Can you tell someone why that is your best bit?
We would love to see your prints on Evidence Me. Don’t forget to ask brothers and sisters to get involved. Perhaps you could send a print of your picture to someone you haven’t seen for a long time.
Berty is the name of Katy’s dog who sometimes appears in these videos. He can be naughty like the dog in the story. Click here to see a short video Q and A (question and answer session) about Berty.
If you have a question for Berty, you can record your question, ask a grown-up to write it down or draw a picture showing your question and send it to Evidence Me. Berty writes quite slowly but he will try and reply.
Click here to play a dog memory game. Click on start and then see if you can find the matching pairs.
Katy’s current score is 1 minute and 37 seconds.
Can you beat her time?
Click here to hear Brogan sing this week’s rhymes and songs:
Don’t forget to request your favourites and keep sharing your brilliant singing and dancing on Evidence Me.
Create your own memory pairs game, it might be best to start with three sets of pairs and then add to the pack to make the game more difficult.
What pairs will you draw?
Is it tricky to make them the same?
Does it matter if they are not identical?
Perhaps you just want to add spots or numbers?
Can you make it really hard?
If you don’t feel like drawing, you could take out twelve cards from a pack of playing cards, selecting 6 pairs of matching numbers or pictures.
Can you challenge someone to find all the pairs?
Who in your family is the fastest?
Who takes the fewest turns to match all the pairs?
We would love to see you playing your games at home. Please upload any photographs or videos to Evidence Me.
Sarah Hayes also wrote This is the Bear in the Scary Night. Click here to see Katy read the story in the park in the dark!!!!!!!!
Can you hear any night time sounds?
Do you think Fred the bear was brave?
How would you have rescued Fred from the pond? (if you didn’t have a slide trombone)
Click on this link to This is the Bear in the Scary Night:
Do you think the dog was pleased to see Fred the bear?
Sarah Hayes uses lots of speech bubbles in her writing.
Have a look at this picture of the boy throwing Fred in the air.
What would Fred’s speech bubble say?
What would the dog’s speech bubble say?
What would the boy’s speech bubble say?
Click on the link to see this week’s nature walk. Katy is exploring the frozen pond.
On her walk she also discovered some ice ornaments hanging on our neighbour’s tree.
Can you make some ice ornaments and hang them on a tree in your garden, balcony or park?
Can you collect some ice sheets?
Can you make some ice sheets?
Can you make some ice shapes and display them?
This is a piece of art made by a Brazilian artist called Nele Azevedo. It was made from 1000 small ice people. The artist wanted us to think about what happens as the world heats up.
This piece of art was made by an artist called Jim Denevan and covers 9 square miles of a giant lake.
This was made by an artist called Andy Goldsworthy using his hot breath to gently stick the ice pieces together.
Click here to see this week’s maths task. Katy is playing a matching game with Grumpy Bear.
Do you remember how many pairs Grumpy Bear made?
Can you remember how many spots were on each set of cards?
Do you think it would be easier to remember cards with dots? Or numerals? Or shapes?
Try this tricky question:
Imagine Grumpy Bear was holding a card with two spots on. Katy sat down next to him and she also had a card with two spots on. In your mind’s eye picture those cards and but them side by side.
Can you count all the spots? What would happen if Berty joined them and he had a card with two spots?
How many spots would there be altogether?
Make up a mental maths problem like this one and try it out on someone in your family.
This week’s science task is all about mixing colours.
What colours did you mix?
Did the Skittles make the patterns you expected?
Do you remember the names of the primary colours?
Can you experiment with two primary colours to make lighter and darker shades?
We would love to see your colour mixing pictures and paintings on Evidence Me.
