Personal, Social and Emotional development
- Practise getting changed independently, including zips and buttons
- Practice getting to know emotions, watch and listen to the story.
Discuss with a Parent
- Do you know what the emotions look like?
- Can you make faces to match the emotions?
- How do these emotions make your body feel?
Communication and Language
- Collect 10 objects from around your house or garden. You choose 1 and your parent chooses 1. Look at the 2 objects and say what is the same about them and what is different.
- Tell a grown-up your favourite story in your own words.
- Look at the website https://www.hacw.nhs.uk/childrens-speech-and-language-resources/
for some great ideas of activities to help with children’s listening and talking
- Practise cutting out shapes and pictures. Make sure your thumb is on top!
- Practise catching large and small balls. Can you bounce it and then catch it? Can you balance a ball on different parts of your body?
- Try a Cosmic Yoga session
- Watch the story of The Three Snow Bears being read.
- Does this story remind you of another story you know? What is the same and what is different about the two stories?
- Draw a picture from the story and ask a grown-up to write what is happening in the picture
- Practise writing your name, starting each letter in the correct place
- For each of the letters that we have learnt, do you know what the capital letter looks like? Try playing this game.
- Use your ‘Teach Your Monster to Read’ app to play games to help with phonics learning
- Make yourself some number cards 1-10 and a ten frame
- Choose one of the numbers and place that many objects on your ten frame
- Now add one more object – how many do you have now? Practise with different numbers
- Now try taking one away to make one less. What is one less than your number card?
Understanding the World
- Find things in your home that are hot or can get hot. What do we use them for?
- What did God make? Draw what you remember from The Creation story.
- Make up your own prayer to thank God for everything you are grateful for.
