Hello Everyone!

This weekend we attempted a phonics version of 'The floor is lava' which the children loved playing in Nursery.

This is also good for Physical Development.

You will need:

  • 5 cushions (Mia added blankets to represent the lava)
  • A pen and some paper

To set up:

  • Put the cushions on floor
  • Write the letters you want your child to learn on five pieces of paper, (This can also be applied to numbers} This would be great in learning letters of their name,
  • Pop each paper onto the cushion.

To play:

  • Each player attempts to cross the room using the cushions,
  • Say the the letters you want your child to land on
  • Once your child can name and make the letter sound. Try and get them to collect the letters to make a word.
  • Whilst they are crossing you could lie in wait and pretend to be a hungry crocodile or a lava monster waiting to catch their foot on a particular letter,
  • Once your crossed you could set various traps. 
  • If your child knows th story of Three Billy Goats Gruff use the cushions to reanact the story.

For Mathematics today Make a number with your child's favourite snack.

Could you count out or add the amount in raisins or cerals to represent the number?Finally on your daily walk collect some natural items.....

Best Wishes
