Morning Starlings,

You have been working SO hard this week and we are super impressed with all your effort. A big thank you to the grown ups for trying and uploading work to our homework function. We’ve never used this before so it’s all a learning curve so please bear with us!

For today, please do your home learning on maths, writing, phonics, spellings and a fitness activity. For Worship, take some time out to do a meditation with My Smiling Mind and Mrs Esling has read you a story for you to listen to today so please enjoy.

Today we are revising our 2D shapes and thinking about their properties. Please see the PowerPoint attached or follow the link to the YouTube video:

 Worship

Today for our worship, we would like you to take part in a guided meditation on My Smiling Mind, just like we do in school. I hope you managed to set up an account last week. Follow the link: https://app.smilingmind.com.au/ 


In order to access the resources at the link below you will need to sign up to a free account (it only takes 2 minutes!) Once you have signed up, select the age category  ‘12 and under’. Then you need to select which type of mindfulness activities you are interested in, I recommend choosing ‘improving wellbeing’. Finally select the resources for ‘3-6 year olds’ and you will now have access to 60+ mindfulness sessions that are great to help your child relax, unwind and switch off after a busy day of home learning. 

 

  Fitness Challenge

Warm up from the snow with some yoga in the winter wonderland version:

Morning Starlings. I really enjoyed hearing all about your fun in the snow yesterday on our Zoom call and for those who shared their clocks. I’m going to use my teaching clock to see how good you are at time so see you at 9.20! Please try out our ‘Homework’ feature on our Class Discussion page where you can upload any work your child does privately and only the teachers can see it and then we can also give you individual feedback on your child’s work.

For today, please do your home learning on maths, writing, phonics, spellings and a fitness activity. For Worship, watch Open The Book’s video and Mrs Southern has read you a story for you to listen to today so please enjoy.

  Maths

I hope you enjoyed learning all about 3D shapes yesterday. Today, we are going to focus on the properties of 3D shapes. Please see the PowerPoint attached or follow the link to the YouTube video:
