Welcome toBarden Primary SchoolCaring Sharing and Learning Together

Thursday 1st October Morning


Can you remember what language we are saying Hello in?

That's right Spanish.  They speak Spanish in Spain, and many other countries in the world.  If you went to Spain you would have to get there by aeroplane, boat or under the ground using the Euro Tunnel.

Days of the week

The month is no longer September, it is a new month - October.  I wonder how many of you have your birthdays in October.  October is the 10th month of the year.

Today's date is Thursday 1st October 2020.

Now it would be time for Wake up and Walk.  We would be going into the big yard and travelling around the cones, jogging, skipping and galloping.  We do this to wake ourselves up and to help us keep fit and healthy.  

We cannot go to the yard today so, either do the travelling around your garden/backyard or go up and down the stairs as many times as you can in 10 minutes.  Don't forget to feel your heartbeat, your head and your chest at the beginning and end. What changes have happened you have done exercise?

It is now time for Letters and Sounds.

Why do we learn Letters and Sounds?   

To read and write.


Let's recap the letter shapes and sounds we have learnt so far - 


The new sound we are learning today is 'n.' 


The action that we do to go along with the letter shape is - 

Pointing your finger at your nose and saying 'n.'

'Naughty nose!!'

Have a go at writing the letter.

This is what we say as we form the letter - 

'Take off, down and over the north pole, flick.'

Can you think of words beginning with n?  Watch the 'Words and Pictures' video and see how many you can spot.
Now that we have learnt 6 letters we can play a game. Get your parent/adult to write the letters s a t p i n (with the correct formation) on 6 pieces of paper (one letter on each) and put them around the room.  When your parent/adult says a sound you have to run and get the correct letter that goes with the sound as quick as you can.  Have fun!

Now it's time to have a glass of milk or water and a healthy snack.  I think I might have a delicious pear.

Let's continue our Learning Challenge.  Yesterday we used out super senses and felt lots of different objects around the house, finding out if they were rough or smooth.  Today we are asking the question - What are objects made out of?

There are lots of objects in our world and they are made of different materials. Today lets find out about objects made of wood.


Now let's find out about objects that are made of fabric.  


It is your turn now.  It is time to investigate - what items in your house can you find that are made of wood and what items can you find that are made of fabric?

Story Time - my favourite time of the day!

In Rhyme Time today we are learning 'Hickory Dickory Dock'


Hickory Dickory Dock,

The mouse ran up the clock,

The clock struck one,

The mouse ran down,

Hickory, Dickory Dock.

Tick tock, tick tock.


When you are ready here is the second verse - 


Hickory Dickory Dock,
The bird looked at the clock, 
The clock struck two 2,
Away she flew,
Hickory Dickory Dock


We learnt actions to go with the rhyme - can you remember them - if not just make up your own.

Hickory Dickory Dock

Are you hungry?  Is your tummy rumbling?  It is time to wash your hands and have your lunch.
