Today I would like you to read
“Jasper’s Beanstalk,” by Nick Butterworth & Mick Inkpen.
Here is the YouTube link:
Hope you enjoyed it!
What did Jasper plant in his garden?
What did you think the bean would grow in to?
Why did he water the bean?
Do you know why he picked up all the slugs and snails?
What did Jasper use the trowel for?
Why did he look sad near the end of the story ?
Can you tell your grown up what is happening in this picture?
Can you draw a short beanstalk, then a taller one, then an even taller one ?
Jasper looked for giants when his beanstalk grew .
What would you like to find at the top of a beanstalk?
Can you draw a picture of what you would like to find?
I would like to find a beautiful, sparkly rainbow like this!
In the story Jasper does different things on each day of the week.
Can you remember our “Days of the Week” song?
It is sung to the tune of “The Adams family.”
Tuesday 2nd March
Today I would like you to do some counting.
How many snails can you see?
How many watering cans are there?
How many spades can you count?
How many Jaspers are standing in a row?
How many flowers can you see?
Are there more spades or more Jaspers?
Are there more watering cans or more snails ?
Now let’s count some beans.
Can you put the correct number of beans in to numbered pots like this?
If you don’t have any pots, you could use cups or bowls and ask your grown up to write the numbers on a square of paper and put it next to the cup or bowl.
If you don’t have any beans, you could use counters or lego blocks to count with.
Peas grow in pods just like beans.
Here is a rhyme for you to learn.
Wednesday 3rd March
Today we are going to learn how seeds grow in to flowers.
Look at the picture below.
Can you show your grown up where the roots, stem, flower and leaves are?
Do you know what the roots do ?
They help the flower to stand up and take water from the soil to help the flower grow.
Many flowers grow from seeds.
First they grow into a shoot then the leaves grow , then the bud comes and finally opens up into a flower. Do you know what they need to grow?
Let’s read a poem about it .
Do you know the answer now ?
It’s the sunshine
And the rain.
Now can you draw some flowers?
Don’t forget the stem and the leaves!
Colour them with lots of bright colours, or paint them.
Thursday 4th March
Today we are going to learn about gardening.
In our story this week, Jasper used lots of different tools in the garden.
Have a look at the items below.
We use them all in the garden.
Do you know what we use these things for?
Which tool do we dig with?
Why do we wear wellies in the garden?
What do you think the tool which looks like scissors is used for?
Why do we need a watering can?
Here is an exciting activity for you to try. You could dig for spaghetti worms!
Maybe you could help your grown up do some gardening.
Here is a list of jobs you could do:
Tidy up the leaves
Do some weeding
Help to water any flowers.
Now here is one of Mrs Bennett's favourite songs all about a worm !
Hope you enjoy singing it!
All your teachers are really looking forward to seeing you back at school on
Have a lovely weekend !
In FS1 we learn through play and love to explore our learning environment both inside and outside. We are creative and learn together with our friends in imaginative ways.
Here are some of the things we have been doing:
We will be talking about all of the things around us that are yellow! We will also look at the other colours and talk about how they make us feel. We will explore different coloured food and find out which colour we like the most!
The children will be exploring this big question through all areas of our curriculum. Here are some of our exciting activities:
Reading stories about colours- Which story is your favourite?
We will be tasting different coloured food- which colour do you like best?
Exploring the arrival of spring- what spring colours can you see?
In RE we will be exploring the Holy Family, and in particular, Jesus' relationship with His Mother Mary. We will also be exploring our own relationship with Jesus and thinking of ways we can help others as Jesus did.
We love to share stories in FS1 and the children enjoy choosing their own books and spending time in our reading den. We read stories together every day as a class and the children also take home a book to share with their families. This half term our story time books will include:
We sing nursery rhymes and songs every day in FS1 and the children all have their favourite rhyme! We always join in with different actions and sometimes even add in our own verses. Here are some of the rhymes and songs we will be learning this half term:
We will be learning to count to 10 in order and begin to count up to 5 objects. We will be focussing on a different number to 5 each week, practising writing it too! We will also be looking for different patterns in the world around us.
Have a go at some of these mathematics games:
