Happy Monday Everybody!
Welcome to a brand new week!
Let's find out what we will be learning about this week!
Today we are going to start by reading a story about a polar bear. What do you know about polar bears? Where do you think they live? What do they look like?
I hope you enjoyed that story. Let's think back to what happened.
Where do you think polar bears live? Do you think it’s where Cuddly Dudley the emperor penguin lives in the Antarctic? Come back tomorrow and we’ll find out!
Have a look at the Letter Sound of the week page to find out what our sound is this week.
Here are some clues...
I love the illustrations in the Polar Bear story. Can you see how they have been made? It's paper collage just using white paper with different textures - look in your recycling to see what you can find. Details are added with a black pen.
Can you make a snow picture using just white paper? You could twist, curl, tear, fold or scrunch the paper. This activity will give you strong fingers and help to get you ready for holding a pencil with control.
Practising your name
Use your name building set to practise making and writing your name.
Remember to say and sound each letter in the right order. How many letters are in your name?
Colour Theme Your Day.
Our story today was created mainly using the colour white. Each day we are going to have a colour theme where you can go around your house spotting and collecting things that are that colour. Today we will choose white which is the colour of snow. How many different things can you find that are white? Are they all the same shade of white? Take a photo of your collection.

Ice Cube Colours
Fill an ice cube tray with water mixed with primary coloured paint or food colouring (red, blue, yellow). When frozen, pop out each cube of the same colour into bowls. Add different coloured ice cubes to separate bowls or glasses of water to see what colours they make as they melt and mix together.
Let's try some polar bear yoga today!
