Good morning everyone. Yesterday was a bit of a quiet day in our house. The sheep finally finished lambing on Monday night/Tuesday morning so I didn't get to bed till 4.15 am, so once Ellie and Sarah-Lou had finished their school work we just watched a film and it was lovely and relaxing.
I am writing this on Tuesday evening and looking forward to a day in school tomorrow when I know I am going to get to see some of you. WE REALLY MISS being with you all the time so to just have a bit of time tomorrow will be a real treat. Wednesday is normally 'Gemma' day so I have included a bit of music and expressive arts today, so go on find your inner Arianna Grande or Ed Sheeran for a bit!
I have added a couple games to try today and please feel free to look around the other Phase 2 resources on the Phonics Bloom site.
Music/ Expressive Arts and Design
I would like you to use the link below to BBC Bring the Noise and pick the song Music Time.
1st Exercise - try just clapping to the best like the video describes. Try this a few times or experiment moving to the music.
2nd Exercise - try marking out a small square on the floor (bit like a dance mat) and then teach your child a small box step in time to the beat of the song " Come (forward), On (forward), Join (back), In (back)" and repeat.
This activity is not only great to encourage a sense of rhythm but also works on gross motor movements and coordination.
