Daily Routine and Visual timetable

Hello, During these uncertain times providing the children with structure and a sense of routine has never been more important. Here is a suggested guide for a daily routine to provide the children with the boundaries for learning, relaxing and having fun that school provides as well as incorporating a healthy balance between screen time and practical physical activities. In class we use a visual timetable to help the children understand the routine for the day and to support the children during transition times. Attached is a link for a website where you will be able to adapt a visual timetable that best supports your home learning day/activities https://do2learn.com/picturecards/printcards/ During this time of uncertainty and worry it is very easy to become anxious. Before our school closed in class, we aimed to give the children an element of control over the virus by washing our hands. We sang Happy Birthday while washing our hands, but the children really enjoyed washing their hands to baby shark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEzkHEGXzuw Hope you find these attachments useful.

Week 6: April 20th- 24th

Hello Dosbarth Rhossili, As the weather has been so lovely there has been lots of special visitors to our gardens. I have had friendly bees, caterpillars and different insects in my garden. These insects help to keep our gardens nice and tidy. Here are some fun activities based on helping our friends in the garden: 1) 'Please Please the Bees' https://www.storylineonline.net/books/please-please-bees/ Life is sweet for Benedict the bear . Every morning he wakes up to find jars of fresh honey on his back porch. He makes honey toast for breakfast, bakes honey cake in the afternoon, and drinks honey tea before bed. One day, the jars on Benedict's porch are empty. The bees in his backyard have gone on strike! They are tired of doing all the work around the hive. What can Benedict do to make the bees happy and bring sweetness back to his days? Here are some questions on the story: Benedict is a "creature of habit" and follows the same routine day after day. Describe your daily routine. Do you find that you do the same thing day after day?• Benedict and the bees live in the same community. Name some members of your community. How do they help you with your daily routine? 2) Here is a caterpillar game for practicing ordering numbers: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/ordering-and-sequencing/caterpillar-ordering 3) Try making your own bee. You could use toilet roll holder, egg carton or a balloon. Here are some ideas: https://feltmagnet.com/crafts/bumblebee-art-and-crafts

Week 7: 27th April- 1st May

Hello Dosbarth Rhossili, Last week we asked you to make, draw or paint a rainbow to say thank you for everyone who helps us. This week our activities will all be linked to a rainbow. 1) Our story this week is 'The Rainbow Fish' https://www.storylineonline.net/books/the-rainbow-fish/ The Rainbow Fish is an award-winning book about a beautiful fish who finds friendship and happiness when he learns to share. Here are some questions about the book: Why is it nice to share?• How does it make us feel if a friend doesn't share with us?• Why is it sometimes hard to share?• 2) Here is a rainbow maths counting game. What is the biggest tower you can build, can you count them all? https://www.mathplayground.com/logic_rainbow_tower.html 3) Here is a science experiment to make a rainbow on the wall: You will need : Water Sunlight A clear glass a small mirror Instructions: 1) Fill the glass with water. 2) Put the mirror into the water inside the glass at an angle. 3) Position the glass so that sunlight shines directly at the mirror. You may have to shift the mirror to find the right angle. 4) Look for a reflection on the wall. It would be easier to see if the room is dark. 5) Adjust the angle of the mirror until you see a rainbow on the wall. 4) Attached is a link for cosmic kids yoga session which we use in class for our mental and health well being. It follows the story of a butterfly flying over the rainbow. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pT-s1-phgxs 5) Can
