FINE MOTOR PRACTICE: 
You don't have to use a pencil to learn fine motor skills. Here are numerous tasks that will support your child's learning.
pinterest is fantastic for ideas also and cooking always helps these skills.
(she is a bit bizarre) but the kids enjoy doing her - you can make playdough at home if you search recipes. 
Try activities like: 
 
  • Threading, posting and slotting toys.
  • Poking straws into holes.
  • Pasta necklaces.
  • Making shapes with play dough.
  • Weaving around cardboard.
  • Squeezing slime.
  • Threading Pipe cleaners through colanders.
  • Beads on spaghetti
  • Painting fence (with water)
  • Picking up stickers and sticking on pages

Happy FRIDAY !

Did you watch Mrs Sweet assembly on Facebook? It was so nice to see her celebrate all your hard work. 

I will upload a video on Monday morning explaining in more detail your 5 challenges.

I want to say a massive THANK YOU for sending in you pictures of your home learning.

This week your challenges are .....

1) To go out for one form of exercise and write a list of all the sounds you can hear. 

2) Can you draw the Highbury logo (the sunshine) to add to your rainbow picture to make people smile?

3) Can you write in your journal about the weather each day? We've been very lucky this week with the sunshine. 

4) Can you learn British Sign Language for the weather signs? 

5) Your last challenge is to cook something with your grown ups. 

 

I have a nice idea ... did you join everyone clapping at 8pm for the NHS these people are our real life hero ... every Thursday people are to stand outside their homes and clap / cheer for the NHS I would love it if you send me some videos of you all doing this at home.

 

Competition on Facebook I have been looking at competitions on Facebook you can join @MFC.SPORTS there is a competition to design your own sport jersey and they will create it! I will attach details down below ... One little girl has made a fantastic NHS jersey.

 

Take Care,

I'll see you Monday
