This week we having been thinking about how to keep our body healthy. We read the story Oliver's Fruit Salad and tasted different fruits and voted for our favourite one and made our own fruit salad. We talked about the different types of food our body needs to stay healthy, the importance of exercise and keeping ourselves clean. They enjoyed washing the dolls using soap and sponges, using the toothbrushes and brushing their hair. We cut out pictures of fruit and made our own fruit bowls, painted pictures of fruit and enjoyed fruit printing. We enjoyed smelling different herbs and spices for our sense of smell activity and made our own glasses for sense of sight. We chose what colour lenses to put in our glasses and talked about how things looked different depending on the colour we chose.
Please continue to practise the sound cards sent home. This week we sent home e, u, r. Use them as flashcards to practise the sound (phoneme) the letters make, can your child remember the action too? To take it a bit further have a go at putting the letters together to make some words.
