Friday 15th May 2020.  Happy Forest Friday everyone.  At least, if we were all together we would be playing in the forest today.  I know that's not possible, but I am going to spend some time playing in my garden, and thought you could too.  If you have an empty egg box or two you could collect up some garden treasures. For maths, make a bar chart of the things you have collected, or sort them into different colours.  If you want to get messy how about mixing up a little runny mud and doing some mud painting?  Collect leaves, flowers and petals and make a nature policeman picture, or just a pretty pattern, and if you have some old jam jars you could make an outdoor xylophone and make some pretty music.  Maybe find a couple of sticks and do some garden drumming?  Or perhaps you have even better ideas?  Let me know in the usual ways what you decide to get up to.   or email

Thursday 14th May 2020.  Good morning little Wild Bankers.  I've been thinking about the different jobs the police do, and what happens in the police station.  Our fingerprints are fascinating!  Have you ever looked closely at them?  I wondered how many different ways of making fingerprints you could think of.  If you use the playdough recipe above you can press your fingers and thumbs into the dough and clearly see the different whirls and patterns in the dough.  If you have some cornflour, you could lightly dip your fingers into it and then press them to black paper and see some brilliant patterns.  If mum doesn't mind you getting messy, the quickest way of making fingerprints is to use a felt tipped pen and colour the end of your finger and press it to white paper.  Use cornflour on your fingers and they stick them into sellotape, or even better, get mum to touch a glass with her fingertips, then dust with cornflour and see if you can lift the prints with tap!  Have you got a magnifying glass at home?  Have a really close look at the patterns they make and then try and draw your own fingerprint patterns.  There is a form above to download so you can play at taking family members fingerprints too!

Cosmic Kids didn't have a police themed yoga, but they did have one about the Sheriff.  Have fun with this x

Wednesday 13th May 2020.  A slightly late Good Morning to everyone this morning- I had a minor technical problem with the web page and have had to rewrite it, sorry.  How are we getting on with our Police exploration?  Jess has made a lovely Stop/GO sign and a mini Jail for her animals... both great ideas for role play.  I'd love to see some paintings of Colin the trainee police dog from the video below- you could draw him in your book, paint me a picture or even use 2paint to make one on Purple Mash.  There is a downloadable net of a police car to cut and stick one together here, or you could design your own on Purple Mash, then print that and cut and stick it.  If you are using Purple mash and you click on the picture of the NET of the shape you are designing, you can colour the front, back and roof as well as the sides.

Tuesday 12th May 2020.  Good morning little Wild Bankers.  What shall we do today?  At the moment it's a rainy day outside, so for me it's a day to stop in and play.  You can download a Police and Robber's board-game above and templates for characters and spinners so that you could make and do, then play a game with your end product.  I know some of us don't have printers, so you could have a look at the track, and the spinner, and draw out your own. Or, perhaps you could draw what is just outside your window, or maybe pop along to Purple Mash and design your own Police car or siren sounds?  Let me know what you got up to in the usual ways.

Monday 11 May 2020.  I hope everyone had a lovely long weekend and enjoyed their VE day celebrations on Friday.  This week's Key worker that we are thinking about is the police man or police lady.  Have a look at Justin and Mr Tumble learning about the police here, and down load this week's writing sheets here.  There are also some other sheets above with colouring and writing frames, role play ideas and more, and we will add to them through the week, so keep checking back.  I really fancy having a go at these police car hand prints too   and these number pegs.  They look fun  I made a police car using purple mash.  Can you make one?  


Last week I attended a virtual training session for Early years teachers.  They recommended these apps  and  to support reading development in EYFS children.   If you've joined in with any of the make and do or other activities we post this week,  we'd love to see videos and photos... you can , add them to  or email them.  There are also some activities on Purple Mash.  Everyone has a login available for that.  If you don't have the details and would like them, please let me know on email or tapestry

Bluebell is our class rabbit. Pupils help care for our rabbit, and we discuss the importance of caring for our pets and our environment. Bluebell enjoys exploring our outdoor play area with the children too. At the moment she is playing out in Ms Hill's garden with Daffodil and Nutmeg 

We have Forest School Friday every week.  Maybe you can do garden forest school on a Friday where you play outside for the whole morning or the whole afternoon, enjoying nature, listening to the world and being mindful.
