Happy Easter holidays everyone!
Here are some activities for butterflies and caterpillar group.
Butterflies are the children that are school leavers and caterpillars are the children that will be joining us next year too.
Carla asks if the butterflies could have ago at some of these writing worksheets to practise their mark making skills and continuing to look at different letters in the alphabets and seeing if the children can see familiar letters and logos in the environment around them.
Sophie asks if caterpillar can have ago at different ‘Ready steady go’ games to get them to anticipate the words and repeat them, also practising their throwing, and taking it in turns. For a quieter activity to help them develop their concentration, threading is fantastic so why not make some colourful pasta necklaces this will also help their fine motor skills and hand eye coordination. Talking lots through these activity are a great way to introduce lots of language and encourages new words.
Look forward to seeing lots of photos on tapestry.

Here are a few activity ideas to go with the story ‘What the ladybird heard’
When reading children stories, it’s the perfect time to talk about the way stories are structured and about the characters and getting them to guess who the story may end.
Weighing activities are also great opportunities to bring new language into their world, such as heavy, light, more, less and asking lots of open ended questions such as ‘I wonder what would happen if’ or ‘What do you think?
Have a great day.

Here are some fantastic idea of fun things to do to follow on from Simone’s story ‘Were going on a bear hunt’ from yesterday.
These activities are great as they help the children to develop their confidence, mark making skills, cutting skills, describing textures, learning to recreate the story without the book, prepositions, and lots of language!
Hope you enjoy these, and look forward to seeing your adventures on tapestry. ...
