At the end of October, your child was given a bear to take home to aid them in their online learning at home.
See a list of activities below to do with your Bear.
Make these as fun as possible and keep us updated on Evidence Me.
Take your bear into the garden at night/ look out of the window and note what you see. Can you spot any stars or the moon? How is the sky different from night in the daytime?
Make a list of what you see, do some research on the internet or in books to find out more about what you have spotted. You could make a list of SPACE facts.
Make some space dough!! Use the recipe below to make your own playdough. What will you make? The possibilities are endless.
- 2 cups plain flour (all purpose)
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (baby oil and coconut oil work too)
- 1/2 cup salt.
- 2 tablespoons cream of tartar.
- 1 to 1.5 cups boiling water (adding in increments until it feels just right)
- Black gel food colouring
Keep active! Try some of the videos on our 'well-being' page. Practise spaceship shuttle runs. Time yourself and record how long it takes to run across your garden. Can you beat your score? Practise balancing on one leg. Count down from 10 to 0. Did you manage to stay balanced the whole time?
Make some music….what can you find in the house that makes different sounds? Can you use these in a repeating pattern to make a tune? Make your own space-themed radio.
Share the story from this week's English with Bear. Talk about the pictures, sound out and read the words? Can you spot any tricky words that you can teach bear? Can you re-tell the story to your adult?
Junk Modelling - Build your very own space ship for a trip to the moon! Use anything you can find around the house e.g. boxes, foil, old empty bottles, lids etc.
Teach bear some of your favourite nursery rhymes, or the songs we sing at school? Can you remember any songs that count down?
5 little men in a flying spaceship
10 green bottles
10 in the bed
Practise colouring, cutting, throwing, threading, catching, rolling…. to make sure your hand muscles stay strong! Make moon rocks by rolling tin foil. Use straws to race your siblings/ grown-ups. Who can make it to the finish line fastest?
Look at the food in your cupboards and fridge… Design and make a picnic for you and Baby Bear to take to the moon like in our story, ‘Whatever Next’. Share this with your teddies. Remember to count fairly!
