Happy Tuesday Everyone!
Start your day with Mrs Wilkinson!
Did you listen carefully and spot where the five words were in the story? Great detective work, children! Here are the words again to remind you.
Let's warm up our counting brains by joining in with a number rhyme!
True or false
Let’s play a game of true or false where you have to decide whether the facts below are right or wrong. Can you tell your grown up which ones are true and which ones are false and how you know.
Here’s a counting game to play around your house.
It's really important to keep moving and exercise your bodies so that your arms and hand muscles get stronger! This will help you to do lots of things including writing letters and your name!
Have fun waving flags and streamers. Make streamers from long strips of tissue paper or ribbon, and flags from squares of thick paper that your child can draw a design on and colour. Tape your flag or streamer to a stick and then it is ready for lots of different games.
Talk about your child's experience of flags. Have they seen one fluttering on a flagpole before? Invite them to hold the flag they have made and try to 'flap' it in the wind. Try waving the streamers around in big circles and then in circles of different sizes. Encourage your child to change from one movement to another by calling out instructions, "Up and down", "Round and round", "Side to side". Think about the movements you need to make letter shapes. Some letters are made using just circular movements, such as o, c, s. 'Draw' them in the air with a finger and then a streamer or a flag.
Supply your child with pens and paper and encourage them to draw the patterns they have made with the streamers.
