Today I would like you read the book 'Jan in a Jam'. This book has all of the sounds we learnt last week j, v, w and x. You can play the video below to check if you can remember the sounds before you start to read.
You can find this book on Oxford Owl in the letters and sounds section.
The log in for oxford owl is -
Expressive Art and Design
Wool and Sandpaper Art
For this activity you will need:
Children can cut the material in to various lengths (you may want to talk about longer and shorter). They can create patterns/shapes and pictures on the sandpaper. The can use their fingers to move the material around the paper and see what happens (the sandpaper may pull the fibres) .
What will the children be learning - using wool and threads can be a real challenge for children fine motor skills.
If you are unable to find the equipment then you could try making glass soap pictures.
You will need:
a mirror/glass door/window
small bar of soap
Adult to cut the soap into small pieces. Use the soap to draw directly onto the glass. You could show children some pictures of ice/frost and ask them to use it as inspiration for their work.
