Wednesday 8th July

Good morning everyone! Did you like watching Peppa Pig enjoying Sports Day yesterday?

 

Today’s challenges

With a grown-up helping, write a list of all the races you could do in your Sports Day. (Running race, egg and spoon, balancing something on your head, obstacle, etc.) You could even draw some pictures to go with your races.

 

Evil Pea is trouble! Use your Maths skills to make a trap for him. Remember he is small so what might you have to make sure he doesn’t escape? Could you use a box? Remember we just want to trap him so he will need holes to breathe!

 

Can you make your own Supertato? Find a potato and get some collage materials and see if you can make your own Supertato! Don’t forget to send some pictures!

On Thursday, we are going to have our own Sports Day! Can you make a medal to present as a prize? You can cut out a circle of card or use a large plastic lid from a yoghurt pot. Decorate your circle or lid with lots of shiny glittery bits. Ask a grown-up to help you make a hole in the circle or lid. Thread a long piece of ribbon through and tie it in a knot. Now your medal is ready! You could even write 1st or winner on your medal!

Friday 3rd July

Hi there everyone! I have thoroughly enjoyed looking at all your pictures about Superworm! There have been some amazing creations this week.

 

Today’s challenges

Wizard Lizard wanted Superworm to find treasure in the soil. Let’s see if we can find some outdoor treasures.

Tape a loose piece of tape around your wrists with the sticky side out. Go for a walk around your garden or somewhere else and collect small treasures to stick on your bracelet. Do not pick anything, just use items you can find!

 

Now you need a long piece of paper for this activity. Draw a long worm and divide it into 10 sections. Then write the numbers 1-10 in each (Get your grown-up to help you with this). Now use a dice and 2 counters and play a game with your adult. Roll the dice and move that many spaces along the worm. Take it in turns and see who’s counter can get to 10 first!

 

Let’s end the week with an outdoor hunt. I have attached 2 sheets. One for in your garden and one for a walk. You could even do both!! Print off the sheet and get hunting. Tick each one off once you have found them. If you don’t have a printer, get your grown-up to write them down instead!

 

Remember, have fun, be kind and helpful! I’d love to see and hear how you get on at Nursery@horncastleprimary.co.uk

You can also contact me on this email if you have any questions or concerns.

 

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Thursday 2nd July

Hi there everyone! Keep sending in your super pictures! I love seeing what you have being learning and creating at home!

 

Today’s challenges

There is a folder on Education City called ‘w words’. See if you can find the pictures beginning with ‘w’.

 

Today for Maths you will need two people and some long wool/thread or string.

Cut your string into worm sized pieces (not too short though!) Hide the worms around the house.

For today’s game, both people need to go around the house finding the bits of worm. They then need to both come back to the same place and piece the little worms together to make their own long worm. The winner is the person with the longest worm.

To make it harder, use 2 different colours of string and you have to find your own coloured string.

Ready, Set, Go!!!!

 

The final challenge today is to make your own sock Superworm.

Find an old sock and stuff it with old newspaper or cotton wool. Help a grown-up to tape up the end. Add some eyes and a superhero cape. Now you can take your Superworm on an adventure around the house!

 

Remember, have fun, be kind and helpful! I’d love to see and hear how you get on at Nursery@horncastleprimary.co.uk

Wednesday 1st July

 

Hi there everyone! Today is the first day of a new month. We are now in July. Can you remember what season we are in? yes

 

Today’s challenges

Be a superhero like Superworm. Make a mask and help people around the house. Set up some scenarios like a teddy getting stuck on the playhouse roof and try to rescue him etc. You can use the template below to make a mask or even design your own!

 

 

Now let’s see if you can be super strong like Superworm. Pick up a big stick and hold it out in front of you. Count how many seconds you can hold it for. Now try a bigger stick. Can you hold it for more or less time?

 

The final activity today is to make a shaker.

Using some pots or small bottles with lids, see if you can make a shaker. You could use some rice, pasta or small stones to fill them up inside. Now listen to the wiggle worm song.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqchPrhezxQ&safe=active

Can you shake your shaker in time to the beat?

Tuesday 30th June

 

Hi there everyone! Did you listening to ‘Superworm’ yesterday? He is a fantastic super hero helping out all his friends!

 

Today’s challenges

Look at the front cover of this week’s book ‘Superworm’. Let’s play I spy with the creatures on the front!

Can you find 3 creatures beginning with ‘s’, 1 beginning with ‘c’, ‘t’, ‘b’ etc.

You can make this harder by writing the sound down for your child to recognise.

 

Today we are going to make a wormery.

To make a wormery, you will need:

  • A 2 litre plastic bottle
  • Soil
  • Sand
  • Water
  • Fruit and veg scraps
  • Elastic bands
  • Cling film
  • Black plastic bag
  • Clothes pegs
  • Worms!!

First you need to cut the top off the plastic bottle and make 5cm layers of soil and sand until you reach 10cm from the top of the bottle.

Then add a layer of fruit and veg scraps.

Now go and hunt for some worms. Talk about how many worms you can find and their different lengths (long, longer, longest, short, shorter, shortest).

Pop the worms in the top and then lay the cling film on top with a few holes in. Secure the cling film with an elastic band.

Wrap the black bag around the bottle and secure with the pegs.

Put your wormery somewhere cool and shady.

Check on their progress in a couple of days.

Once they have eaten all the scraps, empty the wormery out into the garden.

 

What do you know about worms?

Let’s watch this clip and see what else we can find out about worms.

This activity is great for developing fine motor control. Cut a long piece of string and make long worms by threading pasta tubes onto the string.

You could decorate your worm by painting the tubes in a repeating pattern.

 

Now this is a really messy activity!

Cook some spaghetti with your grown-up until it soft.

Coat the spaghetti with paint and then have fun making patterns on paper that look like worms!
