Barnes Farm Infant School

Building Futures, Inspiring Success

* Week Commencing 29.06.20


At the bottom of this page, you will find the Reception  Weekly Plan and the Reception Basic Skills Daily Plans (for those children who find shorter tasks easier to do or those with additional needs).

This week, we would like to invite the children to enter a competition.  We would like them to learn a song that we can upload to our new BFIS YouTube Channel.

The song is called 'Five Little Owls' and is sung to the tune of the well-loved nursery rhyme 'Five Little Men in a Flying Saucer'.  We would like the children to learn and perform the song and upload it to their SeeSaw account.

We will then choose 5 winners (one for each verse) and add them together for our first YouTube video (please only enter the competition if you are happy for your child's video to be shared on the YouTube platform).  The 5 winners will receive a special prize, so get practising!

The closing date for the competition will be Wednesday 8th July.  Please make sure your video is uploaded by this date.

We have added a PowerPoint below with the words of the songs and if you would like some music to help you learn, you can listen to link below...
