Make a thought cloud and add things you are thankful for.
Cut out a cloud and add rainbow strips with words or captions with things we are thankful for in this lockdown period.
If you don’t have coloured strips, you can write the words/captions in different rainbow colours.
Do this in your topic book.
LO: Use basic geographical vocabulary to name physical and human features of familiar places.
Use two pages in your topic books, On one page write the title ‘Human’ and on the other write ‘Physical’ .
LO: Outline personal likes and dislikes regarding a piece of art.
Look at artist Berndnaut Smilde’s moving cloud installations. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GRHWCcOktHI
Consider questions such as: How did the artist make them? What types of cloud are they? Think of materials that could be used to make big clouds, have a go at making your own clouds using bundles of bubble wrap, tissue, ribbon, clear plastic sheeting, cotton wool, recycled materials, pillows. Etc. No recording needed.
Go through the PowerPoint on clouds with your child.
Look outside and see what types of clouds there are today.
Draw a picture with the different cloud formations on and label them. See image below for an idea.
Topic 5 - RE
Below are two versions of the Christian creation story. Firstly, discuss the word creation. Then read through them with your child and discuss which version of the story they prefer and why (it might be to do with the pictures, the language used, or the slightly different content of the stories). Why do they think the story is important to Christians? Do they think it teaches Christians anything? If they like, they could complete the sequencing cards task, putting the events of the story in the order they happened. Alternatively, they might like to draw a picture of part of the story, or a story map of the different parts of the story.
