Hello Squirrels, I am sure you are all very excited at home to be able to have another day to explore and play in the snow.
This half term we have been exploring capacity in different ways using different sensory materials, you could have a go at home, using the snow outside or fun things you might have at home such as rice and pasta. Why not practice some of our key words such as ‘more’, ‘full’ and ‘empty’, repeating them as you tip, pour and fill different containers.
Below is an idea for a space themed sensory tray that you might want to create at home, which is part of our topic during the Autumn term.
And if you would like to share any photos my email is – pmorris@oakwood.Walsall.sch.uk
Here are some fun snow activity ideas, have a go and don’t forget to send in some wonderful pictures of your play and creations.
If you are a bit too chilly and you are happy to stay inside today, I have some really fun fine motor activities for you to try and in Squirrels we are becoming really good at using our fine motor skills to complete different tasks. Show off your skills at home and make sure you send in some pictures if you do.
Why not share a story at home and have a look at our lovely story this term ‘Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What do you Hear?’ If you listen to the story at home today, have a go at matching the animals to the different sounds they make using the pictures below.
Finally if you are feeling a bit hungry today after all the fun, you could try creating some of the different animals from our story in the kitchen, take a look below which animal will you make?
Have a lovely day Squirrels and don’t forget to share some pictures of your lovely day. Can’t wait to see all the fun!
