We will be talking about the weather, frost and snow this week.
Our craft activity today will be making a snowman or snow picture.
You could use egg carton, kitchen roll tubes, or cotton wool.
Look at the pictures below for ideas:
Today the children will be making their own snowball cakes, using:
Moving to music is good fun. It improves children's physical strength and control as they copy the movements shown. We are going to repeat the dances from last week as it is good to revisit previous learning. This gives children the opportunity to secure learning and improve their movements.
Today our thrill is to explore ice!
First, you and your child can go around to find things your child would like to freeze - and they can be dropped in a plastic box half-filled with water. The box will need to go in to the freezer for a couple of hours until the box is frozen solid. Here are some examples below;
When the frozen ice with objects in comes out, you can discuss with your child how it has all changed.
It is solid, cold, freezing, clear, see- through, shiny, hard, slimy.
Now how will you get the toys/objects out? See if your child can think of a way? They may want to try using a stick or a fork? They may suggest putting the ice in water.
For Funky Friday, we're going to do a snowflake dance to start!
Now can your child practice putting on their hat, scarf, gloves and coat on independently. If they can do all that on their own, can they try putting on their boots?
Well done children!
