Spring and Easter Activities for Lily Class

 

I have had a look and found a number of activities you might be able to try at home over the next few weeks.

 

Make your own bouquet of flowers by painting hands and pressing them down onto paper.

The stems can be painted on afterwards.

 

 

 

More ways of making flowers, this time using paper plates and cake cases.

These can be decorated using sweet wrappers, felt pens, pomp oms or strips of coloured paper.

 

                                             

 

Easter Bunnies

These could be made with paper plates, paper and cotton wool but the plates could be decorated with strips of white paper if you don’t have cotton wool at home.

 

The second rabbit is hiding in some grass. The children could decorate white paper with green felt pens, crayons of paint.

 

 

                                                 

Easter Chicks

Another one requiring hand printing.

 

I love the idea of decorating an egg for your own Easter Chick. We hope you’ll have lots of fun doing this one.

 

 

   

 

Another Easter Egg. Maybe hang this one in a window. It’ll look really pretty when the sun shines through it.

 

 

Maybe you'll be able to take part in an Egg Hunt in your own home or garden.

 

Why not try making some biscuits shaped like eggs, chicks or rabbits.

 

Have you made Easter nests before? These can be made with Shredded Wheat, Cornflakes or rice Krispies. smiley

 

We hope you have lots of fun doing these activities.

 

 

It would be lovely to see pictures of the work you do at home and we would be really happy to see these if you could send them in.

 

We hope you have lots of fun doing these activities.

 

Love from Nicola, Diana, Faz, Megan and Carlie 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Home learning Activities

Lily Class

 

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well.

We are missing you all!

I have attached some ideas of things to do at home.

 

  1. Can you make some playdoh with someone at home?

 

Silky soft playdoh

You will need: 8 tbsp plain flour, 2 tbsp table salt, 60ml warm water, food colouring, 1 tbsp vegetable oil

Method

1. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl mix together the water, a few drops of food colouring and the oil.

2. Pour the coloured water into the flour mix and bring together with a spoon.

3. Dust a work surface with a little flour and turn out the dough. Knead together for a few minutes to form a smooth, pliable dough. If you want a more intense colour you can work in a few extra drops of food colouring.

4. Store in a plastic sandwich bag (squeeze out the air) in the fridge to keep it fresh

 

For lots more sensory playdoh ideas and recipes take a look at the twinkl website

Once you've made your playdoh perhaps you can make some items related to the hungry caterpillar – some of the fruits, sweets or maybe the beautiful butterfly.

 

  1. Read or listen to a story with someone at home

Sensory Stories

Try to find a book that has lots of repetition, actions and excitement to it.

In class we really enjoy repeating a story over and over again so that we can begin to understand it and anticipate what is going to happen next.

Incorporate lots of actions, signs and maybe even props to help engage us and keep us focused.

Stories we have been enjoying at school recently include: The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Rosie's Walk, Farmer Duck, Room on a Broom and Tiddler. Some children have also shown an interest in Non-fiction book about numbers and Transport.

 

  1. Can you make a craft activity at home?

In class we enjoy making different craft items to be proud of. At home if you have access to craft materials, then any kind of craft work will be enjoyed by your child. For ideas linked to our theme please look at the powerpoint, but if you have anything else in mind, please use your own ideas.

 

  1. Can you explore outside?

If you have access to an outside space, and following Government advice regarding social distancing, it is good to get outside and explore.

Here are some ideas for outside learning:

 

  • Collect natural objects and create a collage.
  • What can you see? Look around your garden, see what you can find - take some photos on a camera or a tablet if you have one.
  • Practise your ball skills - throwing and catching, kicking and tracking a ball.
  • Talk about the weather, notice the changing weather. Take photos or talk about it using your communication aid.
  • Go for a walk and enjoy being outside.

 

  1. Can you make something delicious?

Cooking provides a huge range of opportunities to explore new and different foods as well as supporting us with learning some valuable life skills in self-help and independence.

We have been enjoying creating a range of dishes using foods that the hungry caterpillar ate in our story. We’ve made lots of fruit crumbles and tarts and were going to make sandwiches and pizzas.

 

Have fun!
