To develop our materials theme, find your favourite doll or teddy bear.
What material has your favourite doll / teddy bear been made out of?
Is your doll made from plastic? Is your teddy made using fur fabric?
Draw a picture of your favourite doll / teddy. Remember to draw all the different parts and try to find the correct colours.
Try to write about your picture. What is your dolls / teddy’s name? Can you make up and try to write a doll story.
Praise all your child’s attempts to write. Scribe underneath the marks they make so that they can see the correct letter formation.
Always encourage your child to name their work at the top left of their paper for name writing practise.
Stories based on washing dolls and dolls clothes:
Nursery rhymes and action songs:
This is the way we wash our clothes
Rub a dub dub, rub a dub dub,
See them getting clean and bright,
Rub a dub, rub a dub dub.
This is the way we hang out our clothes
Flip pity flap flip pity flap
See them blowing in the wind
Flip pity flip pity flap
This is the way we iron our clothes,
Smooth as can be, smooth as can be,
Soon our wash day will be done
With nice clean clothes for you and me.
The Bath Time Song is always a nursery children’s favourite.
Phase one letters and sounds.
Listen to this crazy rhyme – I hope you enjoy it!
