Learning outcomes

Tactile stimulation - Bubble wrap, Silver foil/ wrapping paper/ survival blanket by feeling them with your hands or feet.

Visual stimulation – you could try tracking the lights on the jelly fish.

Auditory stimulation – can you hear the bells or the sound of bubble wrap/ survival blanket.

 

 

                                                                         Sensory fibre optic lights

 

 

Fibre optic lights are amazing in any form of sensory stimulation, whether it be visual or tactile. All our children in Rose class love a bit of fibre optics. They are an inexpensive way of stimulating our senses and can be very effective in doing so.

Here is a video of Richard Hirstwood from Hirstwood training. He talks about different ways of using fibre optic lights. Have a look, it is quite useful.

Hello Rose class,

 

Hope you are all keeping well and safe. 

Well it is the summer term and we have lined up exciting activities for you to try at home.

 

But first we would like to wish all our families a happy Ramadan

 

 

                                                   

 

The topic this term is all about seaside.

We have included some sensory play and art ideas that you might enjoy with your family.

 

Ocean seascape with bubble wrap printing

 

 

 

All you need to do this easy and fun art work is bubble wrap, paint, paper and an adult to help.

 

Learning Links:

  • Communication: giving a choice of two colours, encouraging child to choose by looking at or reaching out to the preferred colour.
  • Numeracy: sing 1,2,3,4,5 Once I caught a Fish Alive!, count the fish/ sea weed, talk about shapes
  • Sensory: explore the feeling of cold wet paint between fingers, feel and listen to the bubbles pop on the bubble wrap.
  • Motor skills: encourage children to use fingers and hands to rub paint on paper.

 

Soapy seaside fun

 

 

 

All you need for this fun activity is a bowl, water, child friendly soap and food colouring.

You could also add shells, bucket and spade or any other items you find around the house (e.g. toys, cups, spoons etc.)

 

Learning links

 

Communication: talking to children about what objects they find for example – ‘look…. You found a shell’, and looking for any response of likes and dislikes.

Cognition: You could encourage them to take turn in pouring activities with siblings. Look for signs of them waiting and anticipating their turn.

Sensory: exploring textures with their whole body, responding to how materials smell and feel. You could add smells to the foam as well (e.g. vanilla essence)

Motor skills: using hands to explore objects in the bowl, encourage children to use a pincer grip to pick up small objects if able to.

 

Sand and water fun

 

You could create a seaside experience by using sand and water for children to explore. All our children love moving their fingers and hands in sand and feeling the smooth texture of it.

They also love splashing her hands in water.

 

Hope you have loads of fun trying these activities.

 If you would like to send us some videos or photos to our class email, it would be lovely to see what you are all up to while we are apart.
