Every day we will do different activities with an emphasis on fun. The children learn many skills in many different areas and in order to cover all these areas we set out the following activities on certain days of the week.
The children will engage in various musical activities including dancing and playing with instruments.
Tuesday; Movement day
The children will engage in Gross motor activities such as obstacle courses, skipping, ball skills etc. this improves mobility, Hand eye coordination and movement skills.
Wednesday; puzzle building
Jigsaw puzzles are one of the finest teaching aids available, it teaches eye hand coordination, problem solving skills, shape recognition and focusing skills. Each child is expected to complete 1 puzzle according to their ability and will receive a sticker as a reward. Please do puzzles with your child at home it is such a valuable skill for your child to learn.
Thursday; Show and Tell
Each child can bring one item to school to show the class and tell them about it. Show and Tell improves confidence and gives the children an opportunity to grow and mature. A theme related item is encouraged but any item is fine.
