Rose

Hello everyone, 

 

We hope you are well and safe! 

  

Here are few activities to keep you busy while you are at home, we also hope you enjoy these activities with your family.

 

  1. Keep your bodies moving

 

In Rose class we like to keep our bodies active by moving, wiggling and stretching. We hope you continue doing this at home, but remember to have FUN while you do it smiley

 

  •   Follow your physio programmes, use your standing frame if you have one, wear your AFOs and hand splints everyday.

 

  • Use your walker (if you have one) and go out for a short walks and enjoy the weather.
  • Another fun activity to keep our bodies moving, is called Rhythm kids. We at Rose class often do this activity, and the children thoroughly enjoy it. 
  • Enjoy a relaxing hand or foot massage using olive, vegetable or baby oil. You can also find calming music on Youtube which can be played during the massage.

  • Rhythm kids for PMLD

     

    Support your child's legs, by gently holing their ankles

    Carefully bend each knee up towards their chest then straighten them again (as if they were marching)

    Help your child march throughout the rhyme

     

                                                                Jack and Jill

    Went up the hill

    To fetch a pail of water

     

    Jack fell down

    And broke his crown

    And Jill cam tumbling after

     

     

     

                                             The Grand Old Duke Of York

     

    Continue ‘marching’ throughout the rhyme

     

    The Grand Old Duke of York

    He had ten thousand men

    He marched them up to the top of the hill

    And he marched them down again

     

    And when they were up they were up

    And when they were down they were down

    And when they were only half way up

    They were neither up nor down!

     

     

                                                         Little Tricycle

     

    Continue marching

     

    I have a little tricycle

    I ride it to the shop

    But when I see the big red sign

    I know I have to STOP!

     

    As you sing the word ‘STOP’ gently straighten and stretch their legs, and pause for a moment

     

    Start marching again

     

    I have a little tricycle

    I ride it to the shop

    But when I see the big red sign

    I know I have to STOP!

     

    As you sing the word ‘STOP’ gently straighten and stretch their legs, and pause for a moment

     

     

                                                Row, Row, Row Your Boat

     

    Gently hold your child’s ankles and straighten their legs

    Throughout all verses, gently but continually, cross and then uncross your child’s legs.

    Each time you cross them, alternate which leg is on top

     

                                                       Row, row, row your boat

    Gently down the stream

    Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily

    Life is like a dream

     

    Rock, rock, rock your boat

    Gently to and fro

    Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily

    Into the water we go!

    Say ‘splash’

     

    Swim, swim, swim about

    Gently down the stream

    If you see a crocodile

    Don’t forget to scream!

    Say ‘Arhhh’!

     

     

     

                                                         Hot Cross Buns

     

    Throughout both verses continue alternately crossing and uncrossing your child’s legs

     

    Hot cross buns

    Hot cross buns

    One a penny

    Two a penny

    Hot cross buns

     

    If you have no daughters

    Give them to your sons

    One a penny

    Two a penny

    Hot cross buns

     

    Jelly On A Plate

     

    Support one of your child’s leg upright by holding the thigh between both hands

    (As if you were going to make dough sausage)

    Start rolling the thigh, then sing again and roll the calf

     

                                                              Jelly on a plate

    Jelly on a plate

    Wibble, wobble

    Wibble, wobble

    Jelly on a plate

     

    Repeat for other leg

  •  Pat-A-Cake

     

     

    Hold your child’s hands

    Throughout the rhyme gently clap their hands together

     

     

                                                         Pat-a-cake, Pat-a-cake

    Baker’s man

    Bake me a cake

    As fast as you can

    Pat it and prick it

    And mark it with B

    Put it in the oven for baby and me

     

     

    Windscreen Wipers

     

    Gently hold your child’s wrists, and stretch their arms out to the side

    Cross their arms over each other (as if they were hugging themselves)

    Then gently stretch them out to the sides again

    Repeat throughout the verse

     

    Windscreen wipers

    What do you do all day?

    Swish, swosh

    Swish, swosh

    I wipe the rain away

     

    Crossing your child’s arms across their chest (as if they were hugging themselves) then gently rock your child from side to side

    Repeat throughout the verse

     

    Windscreen wipers

    What do you do all day?

    Swish, swosh

    Swish, swosh

    I wipe the rain away

     

                                                   Me And My Teddy Bear

     

    Use a thin see through scarf

    Gently swish the scarf up and down from head to toe, above your child

     

    Me and my teddy bear

    Have no worries

    Have no care

    Me and my teddy bear

    We play and play all day

     

    I love my teddy bear

    He’s got one eye

    And he’s got no hair

    I love my teddy bear

    We play and play all day

    Gently swish the scarf up and down from head to toe, above your child

     

    Baa baa black sheep

    Have you any wool?

    Yes Sir, Yes Sir

    Three bags full

    One for the dame

    And one for the little boy

    Who lives down the lane
