It has been wonderful welcoming our children back to school. We are so proud of the positive way in which they have all returned.

Friday 17th July

Hi there everyone! I hope you have enjoyed the story ‘The 3 Little Pigs’ this week!

 

Today’s challenges

Just in case the Big Bad Wolf ever comes back, could you make a wolf trap? Use some of your construction sets or junk boxes and see if you can make a trap. How does it work? What should we do with the Big Bad Wolf when we have caught him?

 

In our story, the Pig rolled down a hill in a barrel to avoid the Wolf. A barrel is a cylinder shape. Can you find some objects that might be good at rolling down a hill and some objects that night not be good at rolling down a hill? Use a plank of wood or a large book to make a hill and test your objects to see if they roll or not. Which shape worked the best? Why do you think that?

 

There is a song called Huff Puff which you can learn to sing. I have attached the words in a photo below and they are sung to the Hokey Cokey!

 

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.

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

 

Today’s challenges

Go to Education City and you will find a folder called sounds. Inside this folder, there are a couple of games to practise listening for sounds. If you need help with your log in, then please email me.

 

After the pigs got rid of the Big Bad Wolf, they all decided to live together. However, they needed a bigger house. Can you use your bricks or Lego to build the pigs a bigger house?

 

Which is your favourite character from the story? You could make a mask of that character. Using the sheets below, print out the mask (or draw a mask if you don’t have a printer). You can use collage, paint or coloured pens to decorate the mask (try to use the right colour). Cut out your mask and ask a grown-up to help you with the eyes. You can tie elastic or string onto the mask so you can wear it.

Wednesday 15th July

Good morning everyone! Did you enjoy bowling yesterday? Did you get any strikes? I loved seeing you making your straw house for your Little Pig! Did you manage to blow it down?

 

Today’s challenges

Paint or draw a picture of the Big Bad Wolf or one of the 3 Little Pigs. Can you use the right colours? You might even be able to sound out pig or wolf.

 

Have a walk outside and look at your house. Talk about all the different parts you can see. Now can you see anything that is a square shape? A circle? A rectangle? A triangle? What about a hexagon?

 

The third Little Pig built a house of bricks. Using some toy bricks (lego, wooden blocks) build a house for your toy pig. Now let’s pretend a hairdryer is the Big Bad Wolf. What do you think will happen to your house when the hairdryer is switched on? Test it out and see if you are right!!

Tuesday 14th July

Hi there everyone! Did you listening to ‘The Three Little Pigs’? The Big Bad Wolf was not very kind to the Little Pigs was he?

 

Today’s challenges

Let’s see if we can make some stick puppets of the character from the story. Print out the sheet below and carefully cut out the characters (if you don’t have a printer, then draw your own). Colour them in and see if you can colour them in the right colours. Join them to a stick using tape. Now you can have some fun retelling the story of the 3 Little Pigs.

Stick Puppets

Have some fun bowling! You can make your own skittles (see picture below) or use some skittles that you might have at home. Each time can you say how many you have knocked down and how many are left over? You might even be able to write down your score.

 

The second Little Pig built a house of sticks. Collect some sticks and arrange them into a house for your toy pig. Now let’s pretend a hairdryer is the Big Bad Wolf. What do you think will happen to your house when the hairdryer is switched on? Test it out and see if you are right!!

Let’s have a game of hide and seek! If the hiding people pretend they are the Little Pigs and the seeker is the Big Bad Wolf. Count to 20 to give everyone enough time and then the Big Bad Wold can find the Little Pigs! Can you say where you found the pigs e.g. behind the…, next to the…, under the…

 

The first Little Pig built a house of straw. Using straw, hay or long grass, see if you can arrange the grass into a house for a toy pig. Now let’s pretend a hairdryer is the Big Bad Wolf. What do you think will happen to your house when the hairdryer is switched on? Test it out and see if you are right!!
