A big Hello to all our families, we are hoping that you are all well and keeping safe at home.
Some more idea’s to try with your little ones….
We’re going on a Bear Hunt
So many children in our Nursery know and love this story so why not change it into a game for your daily walks during social distancing. L.1. Moves at different speeds – slowly, steadily and quickly. Please put a teddy at your window for the local kids to spot whilst out on their walks. It will bring some excitement and happiness at this strange difficult time. You can share the story with your child or access online by clicking here. L.1. Engages with stories and texts in different ways.
There is a West Lothian Facebook page dedicated to this, where you can join and share your photos of your walks. Look it up and share with your friends. Find out more by clicking here.
If you have a printer at home why not print off this certificate to give to your child after your bear hunt. L.1. Celebrates, values and uses achievements to build next steps.
You can find the above certificate here.
You can continue the Bear theme by providing your child with a blanket, dishes and real food so they can invite their bears/cuddly toys to a teddy bears picnic!
L.1. Invents own stories and characters to share with others in play, imaginative and real contexts.
Encourage your child to practise their counting by playing ‘hide and seek’ with their bears/cuddly toys. You could hide their bears around the house or garden and ask your child to count forwards or backwards to a challenging number and then find all the bears. L.1. Recalls the number sequence forwards and backwards within the range 0-30.
