Goldilocks and the Three Bears
This week we would like to explore the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
Mighty Warriors Yoga
Join in with this week's fabulous Goldilocks themed yoga session with Tracey.
Start by listening to the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears
If you would like to join in whilst listening then gather some of these items before watching
- Some teddy bears or soft toys to cuddle whilst you listen.
- Pan, spoon, porridge oats or perhaps even a bowl of porridge ready to taste?
- Different sized bowls and spoons.
- Something warm or hot like a hot water bottle to explore and feel.
- Something cold like ice or cold water to explore and feel.
- Cushions or blankets of different textures e.g. rough, soft, hard, squashy.
- A snuggly blanket to lie down with.
After listening to the story why don't you try some of these activities...
Goldilocks song by Singing Hands
Listen to or join in with this song.
Retell the story
Use this word mat to help prompt you...can you name or sign all of the main parts of the story, can you retell the story?
Could you gather some things from the story (as above) and act it out together?
Sensory Play with Porridge Oats
You don't need to have a tuff tray, a baking tray or tub will work just as well, add some oats, spoons, different sized bowls and some soft toys to explore the porridge oats.
Could you use language such as full, empty, all gone, more and less to describe the bowls of porridge?
Perhaps you could make some marks into the oats? use your finger to draw shapes, letters or numbers.
Some of you might even be able to have a go at writing letters from your name or other familiar words!
Cereal Sensory Play
why don't you explore some different cereals too...
Introduce toy hammers or rolling pins to 'smash' the cereal.
This week's story focus gives a great opportunity for practising independence skills.
Can your child help to make breakfast? find the right number of bowls and spoons, pour the cereal or perhaps have a go at making their own bed?
We would really like to see photographs or hear about ways your child has practised their independence skills this week.
Why don't you try out this oatmeal play dough recipe this week, you could even add some vanilla essence or honey to make it even more sensory.
How to make:
You will need:
- 2 cups uncooked oats
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup flour
Combine the ingredients together, easy as that!
Perhaps you could try out the Play Dough exercises again once you have made it.
