Hello Shooting Stars and Roaring Rockets! Here are some activities that we will be trying this week.
This week we are talking about the season ‘Autumn’. What can we see in Autumn? What do we wear? What autumn foods are there? We will be going on an Autumn walk around our FSU garden and collecting leaves. Have a look around your garden too. Take a close look at the leaves and what colours you can see.
Craft – After having a close look at Autumn leaves and colours, have a go at making your own Autumn picture. In school we are printing autumn leaves with broccoli!
Pumpkins! We are also exploring pumpkins this week. Cut open a pumpkin and have a look what you can see. This is a great talking activity. Ask your child how it feels and what it smells like. Grab some large cooking spoons from the kitchen and scoop out the inside. Perhaps you can use the seeds for counting?
Shape – We are working on recognising 2D shapes. Have a look at the shape mat below. Look at the square, rectangle, circle and triangle. How many sides do they have? Are the sides the same size? Go for a shape hunt around the house to find these shapes. If your child recognises these 4 shapes, challenge them to have a look at the other shapes.
