Here are some ideas for some activities for the children to do while we are off school

 

Share some stories with your children. Get your children to try and retell some parts of stories that they might know. For example ‘run, run as fast as you can you can’t catch me I’m the gingerbread man!’

See if the children can find objects in the house or garden that are ‘tall’ or ‘short’. Can they order them using the language long, longer, longest, short, shorter, shortest.

Practice counting objects to 5, 10 or 20 pointing to each object and saying one number name for each.

If you have jigsaw puzzles at home, do puzzles with the children and talk to them about the ways and strategies they could use to complete the puzzle, getting the children to problem solve.

Help your child to practice fastening zips on their coat on their own or putting their shoes on themselves.

 

Talk about the weather with your child, and get them to draw a picture of the different types of weather each day.

Can you clap out a simple rhythm and get the children to copy you. These rhythms can get  harder as they get better at following them.

Can you make something with junk modelling, talk to the children about what they have made and how they did it.

See if the children can find objects in the house or garden that are ‘big’ or ‘small’. Then start introducing ‘middle sized’ can they order them from biggest to smallest or smallest to biggest.

If you have internet try looking at ‘singing hands’ on youtube,  and learn the Makaton signs for the songs.

Play a game with your child and encourage your children to take turns. For example snap, matching pairs, picking twos, snakes and ladders.

Don’t forget to take photograph of all of these activities and up load it on to learning book.
