Every child should read every day, whether at home or at school and it’s important to plan this in. Many children enjoy reading in their beds before they fall asleep or perhaps they get up early and enjoy reading then. While they are unable to attend school, it’s important that they continue to read every day and find time to do a bit extra. Perhaps straight after breakfast, or before they eat their lunch.

Filling Egg Boxes 

This activity will help your child to develop their fine motor skills. It’s strengthens the muscles in their hands and helps to develop hand-eye co-ordination. These skills are essential for enabling children to hold a pencil effectively and begin to write.

You can use a pen to write numbers inside each section of the egg box. Next use the tongs to put pieces of cereal in each section of the egg box.

Animal Rescue Mission! 

This activity will help your child to develop their fine motor skills. It strengthens the muscles in their hands and helps to develop hand-eye co-ordination. These skills are essential for enabling children to hold a pencil effectively and begin to write. 

Instructions –   

  1. Trap some toy animals/cars/dolls by fixing some elastic bands around them.
  2. Challenge your child to rescue their toys by getting the bands off. 

 

 

It is possibly more important than ever before to keep children active at this challenging time.

Without the routine of regular physical activity at school, children are at a greater risk of developing poor habits and therefore having a detrimental effect on their physical and mental health.

Please find below a selection of online resources that will help your children experience the recommended 1 hour of physical activity required every day.

Stay safe – Stay healthy!
