We will begin a new topic about 'Toys' today.
Give your child a piece of paper to try to draw a simple car shape.
Watch the clip below with your child to follow simple instructions:
Children prepare and eat their own snack on Taste-it Tuesday.
By doing this, they develop their finger strength and physical control over utensils. They also develop their independence and gain confidence in their ability.
Young children love to help in the kitchen.
There are lots of simple jobs you could ask your child to help you with today. They could:
Chatting to your child as they help will continue to develop their listening and comprehension skills.
Children develop co-ordination and physical skills as well as creative skills and imagination responding to music with movement.
This week we are focussing on stop and go movements.
Today's thrill needs a blanket!
This interesting game engages your child and is good for listening skills.
Rain flutter the blanket gently
Wind swing the blanket from side to side
Storm shaking the blanket up and down
After you’ve played the game, use the blanket to play with your child for a while. They might want to crawl under or over it, they might want to make a tent with the blanket between chairs. They might want the blanket wrapped around them and you could read a story together. Or your child may want to place dolls or teddies in the blanket. Let your child choose the play as long as it is safe.

• Introduce the children to the activity with acting/expressing/demonstrating these Opposites: loud and quiet.
• When quiet you can tip toe with fingers on lips, when you are loud you can skip/gallop around the room.
Loud and Quiet are opposites. There are other opposites too. Listen to the song .
