Hello everyone, so glad to see you here again and it’s Friday already!
Let’s begin today with some ‘Spring’ time breathing and talking picture time. Try and find a quiet space near a window with a feather if you can.
PSED : Remember to take a slow breath in through your nose and out through your mouth. Blow your feather slowly and gently or the dust partials in the air. Using each hand start at the wrist and stoke your worries away from each finger, try the other 🌈 Take a moment to listen or look out of the window up at the sky. Taking your slow steady breathes notice the colour of the sky and maybe the clouds ⛅️ Breath gently in a steady rhythm. Enjoy the stillness in the moment.
🗣 Talking – Take a look out of your window, or go in your garden or look at the pictures below and tell your grown up what you see. Remember to use lots of nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs to describe all the details you see.
‘In the garden there are two big, beautiful windmills spinning next to the little yellow flowers’.
Grown ups, ask your child to make another sentence for the same view or picture. (Grown ups – say what you see in a sentence too, have fun using and exploring new words).
Dough Disco – Let’s have some Friday fun boys and girls!
Time to go to the dough disco with Miss Mullen!
Reading -I hope you are enjoying your story books. Choose your favourite story today and tell it to one of your favourite toys ! Use your pictures, track the words left to right, and read some of your key words using your phonic skills. Try also to use your memory to recall the words from the story as you look at the words. Take a look back at the blog and enjoy any of the story links.
Number – counting backwards from 10 challenge yourself and try starting with 20!
20 19 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
This will help with your understanding of 1 less than, and take away 1 is … (point out adults it’s the number that comes before).
Try writing some 1 less sums in your book. 8-1 = 7. Children can use their fingers , objects or a number line 0-10 or 0-20 to help.
Play your favourite sound track (Dance Monkey ?) and make up a dance. Try and choose 4- 6 key movements and repeat them in a sequence to the music. Another favourite, but most of all HAVE FUN ! https://youtu.be/ymigWt5TOV8
