Tuesday 5th May

Good morning everyone! Hope you are all well!


It looks like a bit of good weather is with us this week so plenty of opportunity to go bug hunting or to carry on with the nature scavenger hunt or to even make a bug hotel! I have seen some super ones on Tapestry.   Just a reminder that the traditional May Bank Holiday has been moved to this Friday to conincide with the VE day celebrations. I think inspired by Captain Tom people will be making an effort to celebrate at home especially during this difficult time. Send me any photos of your efforts next week, to our website address, and they will go into our school VE day celebrations folder.

St Johns VE day activities

Challenge of the day!



Make something ready to help you to celebrate VE day. It could be a flag or some bunting. There are lots and lots of ideas on the Twinkl website.

Big Numbers Song | Count to 100 Song | The Singing Walrus

Our "Count to 100 Song" is a fun challenge for children who are learning big numbers!

Counting practice
o Lay cards with numbers on in a line 1 to 20
o Ask your child to turn around!
o Swap two numbers, e.g. the 4 and the 14.
o Ask the child to count along the line and to tell you when they reach a number which is in the wrong place.
o Then they continue counting until they reach another mis-placed number.
o Can they then say which two numbers have been swapped?
o Repeat this, three times. They can do it for you too.
o Time them! How quickly can they identify the mis-placed numbers? Use the stop watch on your phone.

This is a special month of the year for Muslims who are celebrating Ramadan by fasting before they celebrate the festival of Eid. Read the powerpoint and then read the story to understand a little bit more about these festivals.

Challenge - What can you do today to help someone else? Draw a picture or write about your ideas.
