Colours

To help us learn our colours we have sang the rainbow song, read ‘Elmer’, looked at the colours Elmer has on his body, named and sorted objects by colour, etc.

Some of us used cotton buds to paint Elmer different colours, This is also great for our fine motor skills too!!!

The sunflowers have started to die and produce seeds. We used tweezers to get them out which is great for developing fine motor skills. Also a great opportunity for some counting!

We also have been counting peas that we harvested and creating threadings – all great for fine motor development!

You can do a lot of fun activities to help develop fine motor skills.

*using tweezers and tea strainers to move objects is always a favourite!
*making art with small things in great too
*placing glass beads to make wavy lines or loops
*using cotton buds to paint
*using pegs, e.g. with numbers on them and match to a number of objects

Room 3 became archaeologists this week… we were practising our fine motors skills to hold the tools and brushes to find the fossils. Some of us tried to draw the bones too!

The afternoon class chiselled away at hard gluck to find small dinosaurs, whilst the afternoon use art straws to recreate dinosaur skeletons.
