Activity 2 – My thinking and problem solving
Today we are going to use our café again.
- Let’s create a new menu. What have you got in the cupboards? Create a menu of the favourite treats and snack. When it’s time for a snack or lunch, encourage your child to pay for the items they want.
Too easy – Make you child add together the prices of the items they want.
Great idea – Make your child earn their money. Are there little jobs they could help with around the house to earn extra pennies?
Activity 3 – My Communication – phonics
- Follow the Youtube link below that will take you to today’s phonics video! The sound focus for today is the ‘ch’ phoneme. In your Day 2 pack there is a phonics parent support sheet. This will help you with the action and rhyme that goes with the ‘ch’ phoneme.
- After, using the ‘Chuck the Chick’ sheet in your Day 4 resource pack support your child reading the story and spotting all the ‘ch’ phoneme. Circle all the ‘ch’ you find!
Activity 4 – My world and how it works – forest school
Being outside is great for your well-being and lockdown can be a very anxious time for everybody so having time having free, child-led exploration can be a real positive for everybody. This session is designed to be done outside but I am also including an ‘at home’ edition for children without access to a garden or outdoor space or those that aren’t able to leave the house.
Each Forest School session starts with a breathing activity to help us take a moment to focus on our well-being.
While you are exploring the world around you take time to use your senses. Today we are focusing on what you can touch. Make sure that you have an adult with you and don’t touch anything that you are unsure of. Remember to wash your hands thoroughly before putting your fingers in your mouth!
Tick off all you can feel on your sensory walk bingo sheet.
Be the Queen!
Can you follow the Queen? Tell your grown up that you are going to do some actions while you walk and that they need to try and copy e.g. swinging your arms in the air, clapping, walking backwards, etc. Make sure that you do large movements with lots of stretching! Can you swop and follow your grown up?
The Queen has lots of jewels. Can you find any treasures around you? Ask your grown up to find their treasures as well and have a chat about what makes them so special. Perhaps you can collect them in a bag to make a treasure trove?
Make a crown
Look around you for colourful leaves and flowers (or wrappers, papers and materials if you are inside). Collect them up carefully because they are going to be the gems on your crowns!
You will make your crown using a strip of paper or card, glue and pens. Using the pens colour in your strip of card and then using the gluestick your gems to the card. Wait for it to dry and then measure the crown against your head once you know how big it needs to be you can staple (or stick) it together to create your crown.We would love to see your crowns!
