Moving and handling: Children show good control and coordination in large and small movements. They move confidently in a range of ways, safely negotiating space. They handle equipment and tools effectively, including pencils for writing.
Self-confidence and self-awareness: Children are confident to try new activities, and to say why they like some activities more than others. They are confident to speak in a familiar group, will talk about their ideas, and will choose the resources they need for their chosen activities. They say when they do or don’t need help.
The world: Children know about similarities and differences in relation to places, objects, materials and living things. They talk about the features of their own immediate environment and how environments might vary from one to another. They make observations of animals and plants and explain why some things occur, and talk about changes.
Exploring and using media and materials: Children sing songs, make music and dance, and experiment with ways of changing them. They safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form and function.
Being imaginative: Children use what they have learnt about media and materials in original ways, thinking about uses and purposes. They represent their own ideas, thoughts and feelings through design and technology, art, music, dance, role play and stories.
We are continuing with our animals topic and this week we are moving onto farm animals. This week is also a special week in our history as it marks nearly 75 years since VE day. Therefore along side the animals topic I will be uploading some VE day activities too.
Starting off today I have attached a powerpoint all about animals on the farm. Can your child tell you about their favourite animal that you would typically find on a farm? The project for this week is for your child to create their own farm. They could do this through junk modelling, building with lego, drawing, cutting and sticking. It should be their ideal farm that includes all their favourite things. Before you start you could ask your child to design it first, they need to think about what they would want to us and how best to make the farm.
V.E day activity.
