Bears Nursery - Autumn 1 Sep-Oct

The Three Little Pigs

 

 

*Read or listen to the story The Three Little Pigs.

*Encourage your child to make marks on a piece of paper about the story - remember these marks may look like scribbles to grown ups but they will have meaning to your child. Encourage you child to hold their pen or pencil using their "pinchy fingers"

*Build a house of your own for the little pigs. You could use wooden blocks, Lego, natural resources from the garden or empty boxes and containers from your recycling. You could try blowing your house down to test how strong it is. For an extra challenge you could use a hairdryer to test how strong your house really is!

*Have fun with numbers the 1, 2 and 3. Go on a hunt around your house to see if you can see the numbers 1,2 or 3, you could also look out for these numbers when walking around your local area. Hide pieces of paper with the numbers 1,2 and 3 written on them, once your child has found them all ask your child to sort them into correct piles of the numbers. Practice writing the numbers 1, 2 and 3 remember this could be done outside using chalk or water and paintbrushes.
