Wednesday 22nd April

Funky Fingers! Help your children to develop their fine motor control by asking them to put pegs around the edge of a bowl. Or you could ask them to peg around a book or picture. If they need a further challenge you could ask them to put a given number of pegs on their bowl. For example "Can you put 4 pegs on?" This helps to develop finger strength and control to encourage early writing skills.

Sheep Craft. Can you make a sheep? You could print with a milk bottle top (or similar lid) or use cotton wool for the wool if you have some at home! There are some ideas below to help you. We would love to see a picture of your sheep on Tapestry!

Can you make a den?! You could even make it outside if the weather is nice!

I Spy Game- If your child is moving into Reception in September you can use this sheet to play 'Phonics I Spy.' For example- You say 'I spy with my little eye something beginning with s' (saying that letter sound sssss rather than letter name) Encourage your child to spy an object beginning with that sound. The sheet contains objects beginning with the sounds s,a,t,p,i,n. For the younger children in Nursery, you can help to build their vocabulary and concentration by simply say the name of an object and ask them to find it, then ask them to name one for you to find!
