This week the children have continued to use their listening skills to play different phonics games. They have really enjoyed the honey bear game. You could play as a family at home the children will show you! You just need an instrument or shaker that makes a noise, they are fairly easy to make. The rhyme that you sing together is:
Isn’t it funny how a bear likes honey
Buzz, buzz, Buzz I wonder why he does?
Go to sleep Mr Bear (child pretends to sleep)
(Another member of the family hides the honey pot behind their back. All other players pretend to hide the honey pot)
Wake up Mr Bear your honey isn’t there.
Everybody pretends to shake the honey and the children have to guess where the honey is.
The honey bear listens for the sound and then politely asks the children hiding the honey pot “do you have my honey?”.
The children have also enjoyed I-spy using a set of objects displayed in front of them. Rather than spotting around the room.
You will find other games you can play here
This week the children have continued to share the story ‘Owl Babies’ by Martin Waddell. We talked about the feelings of the owls throughout the book talking about emotions such as; sad, happy, worried, scared, excited, angry. The children shared with each other ideas about where they thought Mummy had gone. .
The children are getting used to the routine of lunchtime. The children are generally eating well. Class R staff will let you know at the end of the day if your child has only eaten a small amount.
