Hi everyone, Hope you are well.
I hope you enjoyed the activities last week and helped out at home doing some different jobs. This week we have lots more fun activities for you to try.
Activity 1 – Music
We love exploring different musical instruments in class. Do you have any instruments at home? Explore the different noises they make. Don’t worry if you don’t the ladies and I have been very busy making our own instruments. Watch the video to find what materials around the house we used to make our own musical instrument.
Activity 2 – Numeracy
Numbers are everywhere in our environment in our house and outside. Create you own number scanner by cutting a whole in a bit of paper or card. You can then explore your house or the outdoors on your daily walk having a number hunt. How many different numbers can you see?
Activity 3 – Art
This week I made my own chalk paint to create pictures on my patio. The great thing is you can wash it away with water and create more or wait for the rain to wash it away. Just add a small amount of water to some tablespoons of cornflour then add some food colouring and mix. Then use a paintbrush to draw your pictures outside. The possibilities are endless.
Activity 4 – Health and wellbeing
The ladies and I had lots of fun creating a bowling game in our garden. Watch the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUETPPnWYqo&feature=youtu.be
You can create your own it can be indoors or outdoors. You can make it with anything bottles, cans etc and then use a ball or an orange to see how many you can knock down. Play as a family and see who can knock the most down.
Activity 5 – Health and wellbeing
This week we decided to work on spreading skills. You can make a meal all your family will enjoy – a pizza Mrs Russell had fun making pizzas with wrap for her lunch. Mrs Adair didn’t quite have the ingredients so she improved and made a dessert option. She spread chocolate spread on a pancake and the used other ingredients to create a face – she is very creative.
