Welcome to our summer break home learning page for Early Years.

We would like to thank you for all the hard work you have put into home learning activities since March, we have truly enjoyed seeing your updates on Tapestry and via the class e-mails.

We will still be able to respond to class emails over the break although the response may be a bit slower than usual!

As a reminder the addresses are:

classa@moorgateacademy.co.uk

classb@moorgateacademy.co.uk

 

We have put together a collection of home learning activities for those families that still want the structure over the summer. Below you will also find links to useful websites that can be interacted whilst you are at home.

 

What will you choose to do?

• Cook something with a grown up and create a picture record of what you have done. Perhaps you could try one of Roald Dahl’s revolting recipes?

• Take your grown up shopping and encourage them to buy a food they’ve never eaten before.

• In the bath, use a measuring jug to measure different amounts of water. Create a capacity problem and bring them into school for other children to solve.

• Create a piece of artwork, inspired by Carl Warner, using foods you have at home. Take photos of your creation and take it into school on photo paper or a digital storage device.

• Make a slush drink by freezing a cup of juice. How long does it take to freeze? How about making different coloured drinks by mixing different juices? Record your investigation in a scientific report.

• Set up a melting experiment. Take two or three glasses and fill them with the same number of ice cubes. Put them in different places and see which melts first. Do the ice cubes melt faster if you stir them? Present your investigation in a digital format.

• Compare how long it takes for sugar lumps to dissolve in warm and cold water. How can you record your findings?

• Work with an adult at home to create a clay tile, imprinted with different patterns and shapes, or decorated with clay slip.

• Create an original piece of artwork inspired by an artist you admire and bring it to school to show your class.

• Write a poem with the title ‘Muck, mess and mixtures’. Include some exciting adjectives and read it aloud to the class.

What will you choose to do?

 

If you could be an insect for a day, what kind would you be? Why? Where would you live? How safe would you be from predators?

• Make a bug’s-eye plan of your classroom or bedroom. How would things look from high up there on the wall?

• Read the novel Charlotte’s Web, then write a book review to share with your friends. Is it a good read? Would you recommend it?

• Find out which flowers and herbs attract minibeasts. Plant a bulb or seed in a pot or planter and see who comes to visit.

• Go on a bug hunt in a local park or woodland. What will you find? Can you photograph it?

• Make a comparison between two minibeasts. How are they similar? How are they different?

• Visit a local museum or nature centre to find out more about minibeasts and bugs. Make your own sketchbook and record any information you can gather.

• Use dough or clay to make a replica of your favourite minibeast. Bring it in to school to share with others.

• Make a minibeast glossary to explain all the specialist vocabulary associated with this topic.

• Use poster paints to design a beautiful and symmetrical design for a butterfly’s wings. Can you transfer your design to a computer?
