We are going to focus our activities around vegetables for the third week of term.
Remember to keep an eye out for more activities and personalised updates from your child's class teacher via our Class Dojo APP and please let us know how you get on with these activities, we love receiving updates and photos from you all!
Singing Hands Vegetables
Why don't you start by learning some vegetable signs?
A story about a little boy who only likes eating chips until he discovers lots of new vegetables in his Grandpa's Garden. This is read by Katy with some Makaton signs from Cath at the end.
This week's fabulous Mighty Warriors Yoga session is ready for you all... all around the story of Oliver's Vegetables. Please find a quiet space to give it a go and let us know how you get on.
After listening to the story of Oliver's Vegetables perhaps you could explore vegetables and how they grow.
Using large tubs or washing up bowls, hide some vegetables in some compost. Give children tools such as spades or kitchen utensils such as spoons and encourage children to discover the vegetables that have grown. They can explore the compost then use the water bowls to clean the vegetables. This covers a range of skill for your child to develop including investigative skills, motor skills and organisation.
Add some pretend food or even real vegetables to a big bowl or pan with some water and add some different utensils to stir, mix, pour the ingredients to make soup.
Top tip: You could add food colouring to the water to make it look even more inviting...
The Vegetable Song
A brilliant song to have a sing and dance around to, all about different vegetables and chopping and preparing them!
Ready, steady, cook!
If you are feeling adventurous why not take learning into the kitchen and explore a new recipe involving lots of yummy vegetables like in this CBeebies video...
Take a creative approach with the vegetables and use them for printing. Cut them in half and look closely at the middle of them before getting stuck into printing with some colourful paints.
Or why not try this activity of using a stem of broccoli as the paintbrush and see what wonderful creation you can come up with?
A Mess Free sensory Exploration Activity
fill a ziplock food bag with some cooked peas and tape it down to a surface where they can explore squashing and bashing the peas.
