NURSERY
RE

We have learned about how the parish family gather together for Mass. When they gather together they listen to God’s Word. Let’s listen together to God’s Word now .It’s the story St Mark tells us about how Jesus welcomed the children who gathered around him.

A reading from the Holy Gospel According to Mark

People brought their little children to Jesus. They wanted Jesus to put his hand on the children and bless them.

Jesus’ friends told the people off for annoying him, but when Jesus heard his friends, he was cross.

He said to them, “Let the little children come to me. Don’t stop them. Little people like these need God’s blessing.”

Then Jesus put his arms round the little children, put his hand on their heads, and blessed them.

Look!

What do you see?

What are the children doing?

What are the people doing?

What is Jesus doing? 

Would you like to be there too? Why?

MATHS

From Caterpillar to Butterfly Make your own symmetrical butterfly to celebrate the adventures we have had this week.

Have a go at making your own butterfly. Fold paper in half so you can see the line down the middle. Squeeze different colours of paint into the middle and fold over. Gently squidge the paint to the edges of the paper with flat hands. Open up and see your fantastic butterfly! Or use felt tips and ensure you draw the same pattern on each side – you could use a mirror to help you! If you don’t want to draw you can still look at matching patterns by using Lego!

WEEKLY TOPIC TASKS

Fair-Trade Fortnight

Share some of the activities below:

Are Eggs Alive?

Watch the video Are Eggs alive?

CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO

Ask your child questions such as ‘What can you see happening? Why do you think the eggs are moving? Are the eggs alive?’

Discuss with your child what happens in the video and listen carefully to comments they make or questions they ask.

Ask your child to draw a picture of what they have seen. Can they label it with sounds they can hear, e.g. ‘e’ for eggs.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES

This activity is good for helping children to understand the lifecycle of a butterfly. First of all you have to give each stage a body movement:

Egg: Ask the children to bend down and hold onto their ankles and curl their bodies up into the shape of an egg.

Caterpillar: Next crawl out of the egg as a caterpillar and look for food.

Cocoon: Have lots of sleeping bags or pillow cases lying around and ask the children to climb inside, the also needs to be holding some kind of colourful scarf or tissue paper for the next stage of their transformation

Butterfly: The children emerge from their cocoons waving the scarfs or tissue paper around like wings.

Practise these insect yoga poses.  Can you be a bee, grasshopper, worm, dragonfly and ant?

Bee Pose

Start in tall kneeling. Reach out to the side with both arms.  Lean side to side like a bee flying.  Add BZZZZ if you would like!

Grasshopper Pose

Start standing with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart.  Lower down into a squat position and hold.  Return to standing position or jump! Repeat.

Worm Pose

Lay flat on your back with your legs squeezed together.  Point your toes.  Prop yourself on your elbows keeping your hands on the floor. Lift your belly and chest off the ground.  Let your head rest back (it can gently touch the floor).  Hold and breathe.

Dragonfly Pose

Lay down on your tummy. Place your hands under your shoulders.  Lift up one leg into the air.  Use your opposite foot to try to get your leg even higher by placing it on the thigh of your leg that is in the air. Repeat on the opposite side.

Ant Pose

Start out on your hands and knees. Reach your right arm in front of you.  Reach your left leg behind you. Hold.  Repeat on the opposite side. Continue repeating side to side.
