Summer Term 2020
Hi all, hope you are all staying safe and well and having fun in the sun at home. We miss you all and look forward to seeing you all soon.
Our new theme for the Summer Term is 'Dens and Dandelions'.
A perfect topic to enjoy in this lovely weather!
Here are just some ideas for you to do at home with your busy children.
Why not plant a sunflower seed. Remember to water it daily and keep a weekly diary as it grows.
You could draw pictures or take photographs, count the leaves and even measure it using cubes or a ruler.
If are taking daily walks, take photographs of the different flowers you see. Draw them when you get back home and write their names underneath. You could write a small description about its colour, size and how many petals it has.
Collect daisies and use to make a head band.
The topic also has a woodland animal focus. Listen to Percy the Park Keeper stories on you tube.
Name the different animals in the story.
Make fact files for the different animals. Paint or draw the different animals and write sentences about where the animals live, what they look like, what they like to eat.
Use cardboard boxes, paint them and decorate with grass and twigs to make shelters for toy woodland animals.
Check out 'pinterest' they have lovely creative ideas to make woodland animal masks or making animals out of paper cups or paper plates. Also you try making woodland animal cupcakes- plenty of ideas on the internet.
Twinkl have woodland animal stick puppets to make and plenty of colouring pages.
Why not collect flowers and sort by colour or number of petals.
I hope you find this helpful.
Please continue to use the resources in the IEP packs that were recently send to you as these are personalized to the children's needs. If you have any queries or would like more information please contact me on: JonesS96@hwbcymru.net
It would be lovely if you could share some of your home

All of the practical activities you complete at home such as drawing, singing, reading, cooking, water play, gardening, playdough and many more are really beneficial for the children.
I have also included some website links that may be useful if you want ideas for some more fun activities:

Oxford Owl is giving access to many books that can be read online. They include books from our Oxford Reading Tree scheme, if you child is on reading books:
Top Marks has a wide selection of educational games that the children can play online. We often use counting games in class such as Ladybird spots and underwater counting:
Twinkl is a vast resource website that has many printable activities such as fine motor control and scissor skill activities. It also has listening games and counting activities that may be useful.
‘Singing Hands’ have several songs available to watch on YouTube. These are sung and signed. *Please supervise your child when they are using YouTube*
Providing visual reminders to target hand washing will be useful. Visuals like this one (put together by the Speech and Language therapists at Sheilings school) can help:
