Here is a timetable with the times for the children’s Zoom meetings that will be starting this week. You should have received an email with more information about this.
Monday 25th to Friday 29th January 2021
Listen to Katy read Whatever Next! by Jill Murphy
Do you think bear really went to the moon?
Do you remember what bear took with him on his journey? (don’t forget you can listen again if you can’t remember)
Who did he meet? (there is a clue in the picture)
Some people waved at him on the way. Do you remember how they were travelling? Were they in a rocket too? Where do you think these people were going?
Baby bear was not very impressed with the moon. He said two things were missing. Can you remember what they were?
If you need a clue, about one of them, think about Katy’s nature walk last week and your walk to the park. What did you look out for? Why can’t they grow on the moon?
Have a look at the picture of baby bear, owl and teddy having a picnic. What else can you see in the picture?
Do you think mummy bear believed baby bear when he said that he had found a rocket and visited the moon?
As a bedtime treat you might want to listen to Adil Ray read Whatever Next by Jill Murphy: www.bing.com/videos/whatevernext
Grumpy Bear has invited Katy to a picnic, click on the video below to see the picnic, they are joined by a special guest.
Pack a bag like bear and have a picnic somewhere in your house. What do you need to take with you? Who are you going to invite? Will you have food? Music? Games to play?
Grumpy Bear made Katy an invitation, so she felt special. Draw an invitation or make a map to tell your picnic guests where to go.
If it is a really good picnic your guests (toys, grown-ups, brothers or sisters) might even write a thank you note.
We would love to see pictures, drawings, videos of your picnic.
Jill Murphy was the author and illustrator of Whatever Next, which means she also drew the pictures. She has written lots of picture books and stories for older children like The Worst Witch.
Listen to Peace at Last: www.youtube.com/PeaceatLast
…and then click on this FANTASTIC video it shows Mr Bear Making a bedtime snack!!!!!! www.operaupclose.com/midnight-snack
Can you make some noise in your kitchen with some pots and pans?
We would love to hear your tunes, please upload to Evidence Me.
Click here to listen to Greg, from Opera up Close, play the clarinet. Can you guess which clarinet he uses for Daddy Bear, Mummy Bear and Baby Bear? https://youtu.be/EZdC2q4BtVo
Pretending to go an adventures is one of the best things to do in nursery.
We often sit on the caterpillar outside and decide to go on an adventure together. We have been to space and seen some aliens, the seaside, dinosaur land and have even been attacked by zombies. Sometimes we have to “run for our lives!!!!!!”
Can you go on an adventure? Think about where the adventure might start from. Is it your sofa? Your bedroom, bathroom or shed?
How are you going to travel? By rocket? Boat? Aeroplane? Train? Bus? Where are you going?
Click here to see Katy go on an adventure:
Remember your adventure can be short or long. We would love to know where you went on your adventure.
Make a rocket like Baby Bear. You can use boxes that are big enough for you to go inside, or use duvets and pillows like Katy’s rocket in the bath.
You might like to make a rocket for one of your toys.
If you like building from Lego, blocks or construction we would love to see your models and with your permission we would like to share some next week on this blog.
Can you challenge a grown-up in nursery to make a model like yours?
We will need some pictures, drawings or plans to copy.
Do you think the grown-ups can follow your plans?
Can they make a copy of your model?
(It doesn’t have to be a rocket maybe you have a favourite object you like to build).
See the video below to watch this weeks’ maths problem:
Can you guess how many segments are in the satsuma?
What was your estimate?
Have a go at home or challenge someone in your house. How can you check if your guess (estimate) was correct?
Does it matter if our estimates were wrong?
Do mathematicians always get the answers right?
Record some of your guesses (or the guesses your grown ups made) by holding up your fingers, making marks (tally marks) or drawing the segments.
This week Katy is using her science knowledge to turn a cup of water upside-down above her head. WATCH OUT!
Did it work?
Can you explain what happened to the water?
Why do you think the water did what it did?
Try out this experiment at home (perhaps in the bath, in the shower or over the basin!)
Click on this link for this week’s nature walk:
It has rained lots in the forest this week, so Katy is going to wear her birthday wellington boots and take a walk up stream.
Also, there is a great birdwatch that you can talk part in by clicking on this link: www.rspb.org.uk/birdwatch/
Last week we thought about Rabbit Foo Foo and David who found it difficult to follow rules and were not always making good choices.
Sometimes we feel angry because we are stuck inside, we can’t go to nursery, play with our friends or see our family.
Not doing these things or having contact with people that are special to us, can make us feel sad.
Click on this link to watch Tom Hardy read Under the Same Sky by Robert Vescio and Nicky Johnston: www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/-under-the-same-sky
Who do you think about before you go to bed? (Don’t forget your sharing the same sky with them)
Who do you miss?
Tell your grown-up what you miss about them?
In the story, the two children made special things to send to each other. Can you draw a picture, make a decoration, or record a message on a mobile phone, to send to someone you love?
Watch the video below to listen to our next five nursery rhymes and songs.
Finally, the blog has someone singing in tune!!!!!
Don’t forget to upload, any videos of you singing and dancing, to Evidence Me, we love to see you responding to music and joining in.
Baby Bear went on an adventure to the moon.
If you are interested in space travel NASA has a great website for children: https://www.nasa.gov/kidsclub
Here are a few highlights:
https://youtu.be/_fRSaLAEW2s (highlights from the planned new Artemis mission to the moon 3mins)
https://youtu.be/Ilifg26TZrI (images from Apollo 13 were used to recreate what the moon surface looks like 2mins)
https://youtu.be/_T8cn2J13-4 (a detailed account of Artemis, great to watch for any future astronauts 5mins)
This is a great video showing how complicated everyday life is on the international space station. Watch astronaut Karen Nyberg wash her hair in space. https://youtu.be/uIjNfZbUYu8
How do astronauts stop their hairbrushes floating away in space?
Astronaut Chris Cassidy had to attach a hoover to his clippers so his hair clippings didn’t float away.
Grumpy Bear is cooking simple toasted sandwiches (Toasties) to take on his rocket.
Can you follow this simple recipe?
Can you draw, or tell someone in your family, how you made your Toastie?
