Welcome to Lavender Class!

As we are off school at the moment, I will be using this space to share some ideas and activities that you can do at home to keep you busy. 

Stay safe and have fun!

Friday 5.3

Happy Friday! Who can remember what the colour of the day is? Here is our song.

P.E

Today in school we are doing P.E so let's get active!

This session focuses on your child dancing along and copying the movements from various dance videos. 

Here are some links to different dance videos. Some simple versions are GoNoodle with simple movements, my favourite video is Poppin bubbles and if you wanted you could use some real bubbles for your child to pop along with. 

Some more complex videos are Just Dance, they require more complex and quicker movements however there is a better variety of songs and up to date music all of which are child friendly. 

Or you could try a more traditional kid friendly workout or even a Cosmic Kids Yoga Adventure if you want a more relaxed session with simpler movements. 

Our school are also members of Jasmine PE. You can follow this link  and use these details to login and try some of the activities at home: Username: lancasterian21 Password: high0602

Fine motor

It's time to get those fingers moving, today we are going to do some threading. You will need a piece of string or shoelace and some pasta pieces/mints or something with a hole in the middle of it. Watch my video here and see if you can follow along. 

Shapes

In Maths we have been looking at shapes in our environment. Watch Caitlin's video here as she finds different shapes in her house and see which shapes you can find in yours! 

Turtle song

In Lavender class we love to sing . Watch Ash sing one of our favourites the turtle song. You can use some bubbles with your child and encourage them to pop them too!

Indoor scavenger hunt 

In the files section I have attached an indoor scavenger hunt. Have some fun and see what you can find in your house - take pictures of what you find and send them to me, we would love to see what you find! 

Tuesday 2.3

Here is our good morning song for Tuesday. Can you find 3 things in your house that are the colour of the day? Take a picture and send me them!

Mark making

In school, Lavender class enjoy making marks in different textures. Please don't go out and buy any materials, whatever you have in the house will be great!

Ideas

Flour/Pasta/Oats/Shaving foam/Lentils/Sand/Soil

Choose one of these textures and put ideally on a flat surface e.g table/tray. Allow your child to explore the materials. Are they watching their fingers as they make movements? Can they draw a circle? Can they draw draw a dot? What about the number 1? Can they copy what movements you make? Comment on your child's movements for example 'wow you have drawn a line'. 

Watch my video here of some mark making ideas.

Shapes

Today in our Maths session we are going to look at shapes. Listen to our favourite shape song here and at the bottom of the page is a picture of our tuff tray. Encourage your child to find shapes around the house and see if they can do some matching.

Relaxation

This session focuses on increasing your child’s ability to regulate themselves while encouraging interaction and communication with you.

You will need: a blanket/duvet, some calming music, some moisturising cream (optional)

Monday 29.02

Good morning everyone, hope you all had a nice weekend and enjoyed the sunshine! Here is today's good morning song. 

Golidilocks and the three bears

In class we are reading Goldilocks and the three bears. Watch the story here and follow along. If you have the book at home encourage your child to find the different characters.

Number songs

In Lavender class we love our number songs. Today we are going to listen to 5 cheeky monkeys. You can use 5 items at home and follow along, encouraging your child to throw one off each time.

Making a bear snack

You will need rice cake, cream cheese/peanut butter/chocolate spread, banana and blueberries or any other fruit you have in your house. Linked with our story we are going to make a bear snack. I have attached a picture to show you what it might look like in the files section. In class we have been focusing on our spreading skills and handling a knife safely to cut the different fruits.

Have some fun!
