Monday Afternoon Task - Communication and Language

 

Have a teddy bear picnic with all your teddies.  Make sure they have all got enough food, see if you can make sure they all have the same amount by counting what is on their plate.  It would be a good idea to draw a map to show the teddies where they have to go.  I have included a copy of Winnie-The-Pooh's map below but you can design your own.

Try this challenge: Fill a small bowl of small objects e.g raisins and peas (or whatever you have to hand) and blindfold your child. Can they only pick out only the raisins?

 

 Questions: How did you find that challenge? How did it make you feel? What sorts of things do we everyday that are tricky? Do you ever have any problems with your friends? How do you sort these out?

Let’s Think: Talk about how sometimes we may come across things that are hard.

Discuss how we could overcome them. If we were to do the challenges again, what could we do to help us achieve them? What sorts of things do we everyday that are tricky? Do you ever have any problems with your friends? How do you sort these out?

 

It's time for some Yoga.  Have a go at this cosmic kids session; Sonic the Hedgehog.

Communication, Language and Literacy/Understanding the World

 

Make your own role play flying doctors’ base. Ask your child to suggest where this could be – you could look at images from the book for ideas; maybe it will be a cave, a forest, castle ruins, etc. Tell your child that they are going to pretend to be one of the flying doctors. Read out the scenarios on Resource Sheet 1: A doctor’s checklist and encourage your child to suggest the correct treatment to give to their patients. Teddies or dolls could be used as the patients, each with a card stating what their problem is and your child should act out how to treat their ailments.
