Monday 30th March

Talk about the Story : Mr Wolfs Pancakes

What can your child remember about the story, can they retell any of it from memory? Talk about main characters, after a couple of pages what happens next? What could happen at the end? Record your child's ideas in their busy bee books, can they draw a character from the story? Re -watch the story from last weeks link if needed. Cant wait to hear about your ideas!

Heavy or light sorting!

Use any resources you have at home to make some simple scales. Use them to weigh items from around your house like toys, different foods, or your families shoes depending on the size of your buckets! Talk about what was the lightest , what was the heaviest. Hope you have fun exploring different weights. 
Just in case you have got wiggly bottoms at home!

Tuesday 31st March

Mystery Object Game:

You need a bag or pillow case, a collection of items from around your home, some familiar, some unusual.

1. First time you play this game concentrate on one object.

2. Put an object in the bag with out the other person seeing.

3. Tell the children/ Child that we have a mystery object in the bag and you will feel and give clues to what it is, the child can use simple questions to find out more about the mystery object. 

4. Model the questions to your child like " now what does it feel like? its smooth, big small etc.." until your child feels confident to ask some more questions to find out what it is. 

5. Some children  feel very confident to ask questions others don't so just make it quick and fun. 

6. To motive some children, an edible treat might be used as the mystery object, Yum!
