Well done to all of our Nursery children and Parents for a fantastic week of learning.
Remember that yours and your child’s mental health and well being is incredibly important, always, but particularly during this time. Take each day as it comes and have fun with the activities. Please remember that you’re doing a fabulous job and YOU are your child’s ‘Forever Teacher.’
Here are a few pictures of some of the activities we have been sharing on Tapestry (counting, mark making our thank you card for the Hospital workers, large scale mark making and role play). I’m so proud of you all.
Today Rakhi has a project for you. She wants you to make your own ‘Operation’ game. This used to be her favourite game when she was little. You need a cereal box, glue/tape, scissors and some colouring pens.
1. You and your grown up can cover one side of the cereal box with plain paper using tape or glue
2. Next you can draw a big picture of a person
3. Draw 10 shapes onto the person (heart, circles, rectangles, squares, ovals) and colour them in
4. Using scissors, cut the shapes to make flaps so that you can see through your person into your cereal box
5. Place some cotton buds into the holes so that one end is popping out slightly
6. Using some tweezers, count how many you can pull out. Use your cardboard operation game for your role play and mark making
When you have made it, you can use this game in your ‘Doctor Role Play.’
Can you mark make all the different ways you are helping your patient? Every time you pull something out from the hole, mark make on some paper and tell your grown up about your marks. What part of your patient’s body are you treating? Why have they come to see the Doctor today? Look at Rakhi’s one!
Adults you can model writing with your child. Allow your child to see what your writing looks like and explain to them that what they’re doing is writing too.
Can you use some tweezers to pull out the cotton buds? How many can you count altogether?
We can practise tuning into our environmental sounds today. Let’s play a game. It’s called, ‘Where’s the sound?’
Adults, you can set an alarm on your phone to go off at different times and hide your phone somewhere in the house. As the alarm is going off ask your child where they think the alarm sound is coming from? Is the sound getting louder/quieter? Are you closer or far away? Take it in turns.
Let’s practise our cutting skills again today using scissors. Aysha is cutting and sticking paper to make a picture of a flower.
