Hopscotch

Why not set up a game of hopscotch?

Use a bean bag to toss onto the squares of the hopscotch area.

Alternatively, you can use chalk to mark one out in your garden or you can buy hopscotch mats online.

Bean bag toss

Set up a target and have your children toss bean bags into it.

You can have bowls (each worth a different point value), use a box with cuts holes in it, or you could set up a store-bought bean bag toss game.

Hula hooping

Best for those that either have a lot of indoor space or have a garden.

Captain, yes captain

This one can involve everyone in the family - and the more who can play, the better.

To play, you first select a “captain”.

The captain yells out orders and the crew have to follow the orders.

Here are the orders:

  • Bow: Run to the front of the boat (front of room)
  • Stern: Run to the back of the boat (back of room)
  • Port: Run to the left side of the boat
  • Starboard: Run to the right side of the boat.
  • Hit the deck: Lay down on your stomach
  • Salute: Salute and yell, “Aye, aye captain!”
  • Scrub the deck: Drop to your knees and pretend to scrub the floor.
  • Captain’s quarters: Everyone ran towards the captain.
  • SHARK!: Everyone must run to a designated base. The last player to the base is eliminated.

Circle time

Are you  ready for some relaxation and  some deep thinking ?

French

Bonjour Sycamore

I hope that you all had a great half-term. To complete our learning about French dates, we are going to look at how to say when your birthday is in French. We are also going to learn how to sing Happy Birthday in French!

Please watch  https://youtu.be/iHvo_vTNWmE and work through it carefully, it is a short story which I think you will enjoy listening to as you should be able to recognise lots of the words - I hope that by the end you should be able to say when your birthday is in French. As a challenge, try to remember how to ask someone when their birthday is in French too!

After that you can watch https://youtu.be/u1OJTdWTPEQ and learn how to sing Happy Birthday!

Have fun!

Mme Bunting
