Happy Tuesday Everybody!
I enjoyed watching Abbie and her brother get ready for Chinese New Year. Can you remember some of the things they do? Here's a little quiz...
Ms Paulson reads A Dragon Dance
Here's a story to share! You can find out how a different family celebrate Chinese New Year. Are some things the same?
This week we are going to learn about number 5. Can you find 5 on this number line?
I think five is one of my favourite numbers! I have 5 fingers and 5 toes. Do you? Count and check! There are lots of rhymes about the number 5 too such as 5 Currant Buns and 5 Little Ducks. Can you think of one?
Count these polar animals. How many are there? Do you know what animals they are?
These 5 babies are looking for their mothers. Can you help them?
A Necklace for You!
Let's do some threading...
Here's something you can do all by yourself and it will help you to have strong fingers!
Ask your grown-up for some wool or string and some small things that you can thread onto it to make a necklace. You could use pasta tubes, plastic straws (you could snip them into pieces yourself!), paper clips, cut up egg carton with a hole pushed into it or paper cake cases.
Here's a fun game to keep your body busy! Grown-ups, blow up a balloon and use a piece of tape to mark the centre line or “net” on the ground. Balloon volleyball is a great game for two or more, but it can work for just one. If there’s nobody else around, have your child play both sides by running back and forth over the line to hit the balloon before it lands on the ground.
Or you could play at keeping the balloon off the ground - how long can you keep it up in the air for?
Here are some more balloon ideas...
