Fun-day Focus

Make-it Monday

The children will be developing their skills using scissors today, using small children's scissors.

  • For children to control scissors effectively, they first need to master the grasp-release motion of the scissors, opening and closing the blades.

        Using a water-spray bottle or playing with clothes pegs will help with this.

  • Next, children will need to hold scissors correctly, with their thumb at the top and middle fingers at the bottom.
  • In school, we explain that the scissors represent a crocodile opening his mouth and snipping the paper.
  • It is important to teach children to hold scissors so that they cut away from themselves.

Children will choose and cut their food picture and add colour using felt tip pens or simple paint.

Taste-it Tuesday

The children will be making their own pizza today. They will:

  • use a pitta bread as a base
  • spread tomato puree onto the base
  • sprinkle cheese on top

They will eat their own pizza at snack-time.

(We will ensure children eat their own pizza by keeping a record of each child's pizza in the oven).

 

Wiggle Wednesday

 

Today children will repeat movements from last week, continuing to develop their physical control, strength and stamina as they follow the actions shown and move to the music.

Songs and dances relate to our topic on Food.

Thrilling Thursday

 

Today's thrill will be another role playing session like last week's thrill. It will be a teddy bear's picnic!

All you will need is your child's teddies or dolls, plates, cutlery, table cloth for the floor and any foods you think would like.

 

Role Playing is an effective way for children to make sense of the world around them.

It develops speaking and listening skills, as well as giving children the opportunity to reflect on and develop their knowledge of a eating with others with creativity and imagination.
