Good morning all.
Remember you can access a 30 minute fitness session daily at 9AM on Youtube by the Body Coach. This is the link to access this:
Below is a link to a Happy Feet activity session that focuses on movement of the body developing gross motor skills. I am sure that the children will enjoy taking part copying the children on the screen.
Stories, Rhymes and songs.
This link to Fischy Music takes you to a page where you can access different songs by clicking on the emoji’s. Some of the songs are familiar old ones along with songs that have been written with children. I hope your children enjoy these.
Going on a Bear Hunt is a book all the children love in the nursery. The link below is the author Michael Rosen telling the story to the children.
As a follow on to this activity why not put a bear in the window for children to spot as they walk past. This activity is promoted through Facebook where you can join the group We’re Going on a Bear Hunt West Lothian. If you do not use face book you could place a teddy bear in your window or get the children to draw a bear colouring it in using rainbow colours and place this in your window.
Why not get the children involved in everyday activities around the house. In the nursery we focus on teaching the children life skills while managing risk. This is evident when the children having snack where they are involved in the preparation and making of snack. In nursery we use plates and cutlery that you will find in your kitchen so the children are used to seeing and using simple kitchen equipment. To encourage this at home why not have your child help to make their lunch today –
- Give your child a knife and let them spread their own bread and cut their fruit.
- They can count out how many grapes etc on their plate, remember to cut grapes length wise to reduce choking risk.
- You could make funny faces with finger foods on their plate together.
- Use foods that you have and where appropriate, give your child a responsibility.
- You could have your child help you to do the dishes after too.
The Easter competition is on! I have lots of Easter eggs to give away!
