Fine Motor

We practise our fine motor skills every morning to help to develop our muscles in our hands and to get us ready for writing. 

Ask an adult to write your name on a piece of paper, then use some small objects to place over the letter shapes. The small objects allow you to develop a pincer grip- which will help you to hold a pencil! If you want to mix it up, you could use tweezers to place the objects on your name. In the picture below, they have used small pieces of pasta, but you could use anything! Rice, buttons, beads, pasta, cereal, jelly beans!

Alternatively, you could choose your own activity from the 'Fine motor skills at home' document on the Reception Remote Learning page.

This week, we are starting our learning in the unit 'It's me, 1,2,3!'

We will be focusing on each number, its value, the many different ways we can represent the numbers, and the different ways each number can be made. 

Yesterday, we looked at number 2. Today we are looking at number 3.

Join the call, then have a go at the activity. 

If you would rather, you could watch Miss Cooper on the video by following the link below.

You can also watch the Numberblocks episode about the number 3.

All about me!

This week I would like to learn about your family! 

Draw and label a picture of you with your family. You can use the template below if you would like, or make your own similar one.

(Print the template. Cut the front page (with the title) out and down the middle. This gets stuck on the bottom page and the 'doors' open to show the picture underneath). Please see photo below for example.
