Remote Learning with be on Google Classroom.  In addition:
  • Play a turn taking game with your child, for example snap, dominoes, doing an age appropriate puzzle or  board game together. Also play 'I spy' using colours and then the first sound of the object.
  • Share a book, talk about it, ask the children what they notice and what they think will happen next.
  • There are also some lovely stories on YouTube but please try to limit screen time.
  • Sing a counting song and use objects that you child can role play with. For example 'Five little speckled frogs', you can use plastic milk container lids to represent the frogs.  Other songs that you could share are 'Five little ducks',  Ten in the bed ( and use soft toys), Five currant buns' and of course traditional nursery rhymes like 'Humpty Dumpty'.
  • Sorting some socks, laying the table for dinner, involve the child when cooking, and sorting when tidying their toys away.
  • Help you child to become more independent by going to the toilet and washing their hands.  Getting dressed and putting on their own shoes, blowing their nose, eating with a knife and fork.  These skills will help you but most importantly will really help your child with their self esteem.
