This page has been set up to give you additional ideas for activities outside of those set by your wonderful teachers. I will continue to add to it as the days go on so that you can see some of the things we are doing in school as well.
Feel free to ask your parents to share any photos of work and activities on our Facebook page (our username is @WorthPSPoynton) - I love seeing what you have all been doing :-)
We have been keeping busy by making grass heads today. We used tights for the casing and added some grass seed and compost. We then decorated our heads with googly eyes, beaks and feathers to turn them into chicks. We are looking forward to seeing their "hair" grow!
Try using some alternative resources to create paintings by looking for equipment and materials in your garden. You could make paintbrushes to create different effects or do some printing to make patterns.
As we are approaching Easter, we have made some (very cute) Easter chicks in school. We used card and split pins to open their egg. We are going to decorate them with feathers and sequins. Top tip: why not use porridge for the egg to give it a life like texture?
Youth Sport Trust is a great website with lots of ideas for physical activity. They have now created a home learning section on the website to give you plenty of ideas of how to keep fit when you can't get outdoors. Let's keep moving!
Virtual Tour of Chester Zoo - 27th March
Go to Chester Zoo's Facebook page today for a live virtual tour of some of the animals. See times above for the different areas of the park.
Building a bug hotel will help to give the bugs in your garden a place to live. If you have any bits of wood, twigs, pine cones, straw, old pots that are not in use, recycle them to build your bug hotel. You could keep a list/photos of visitors who come to stay in your hotel and share it with your friends and teachers when we come back to school. What will you call your hotel?
The children have been making dream catchers. We are going to walk down to the woods to hang them in the trees. Why not put yours out in your garden or up at a window?
All across the country, rainbows are springing up in windows since schools closed. For a craft activity, create your own rainbow and stick it in a window, visible for the passing public whilst they’re out on their daily, isolated exercise.
If you’re out for your daily isolated exercise, can you see how many rainbows you spot in the area?
PLEASE make sure that if you do go rainbow spotting for your daily exercise, it is ONLY WITH MEMBERS OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD. Be sensible, be safe and look after each other.
