Oliver’s Vegetable Fine Motor Skills

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS *

The Daisies class enjoyed some fine motor skills activities linked to our Oliver’s Vegetables theme. We practised our overwriting using themed worksheets, we used play dough to make a range of vegetable shapes, we moved frozen peas using pegs and we completed an “I spy” task that required really good looking at a theme picture to find the objects.

Oliver’s Vegetables – Mr Potato Head

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS, RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS *

The Daisies class really enjoyed today’s theme related activity. We used a range of vegetables to make a Mr Potato Head. We made choices of what vegetables to use for different body parts and are excited to show them off to our friends in the Infant Corridor.

Oliver’s Vegetables – Sensory Trays

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS *

The Daisies class loved exploring themed sensory trays today. We explored a range of vegetables in soil. We also used a peeler and peeled carrots and potatoes and explored their skins. Finally, we washed the muddy vegetables and had discussions over which vegetables floated in water and which sank.

Oliver’s Vegetable Theme – Tortilla Wrap Faces

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS *

The Daisies class loved making funny faces today. We used tortilla wraps as our base and then used a range of vegetables to make our other facial features. We chose from cherry tomatoes, carrots, cucumber, peppers and potatoes. We really enjoyed doing this, especially grating the carrots and cucumber to make curly hair.
