Shared Parent Sessions
So To Speaks shared parent’s sessions
Messy play for Dads/Grandads
Dads and Grandads were invited to take part in a messy play session (Some Mums also stayed and played!)
It got quite messy but was great fun!
We made marks in the shaving foam and paint and enjoyed the gooey gloop! We also played with the gelli baff using funnels and scoops.
Claire from ‘Music for little people’ comes in weekly to lead a fun music session with So To Speak.
It was lovely having parents join in with us; we sang songs, played various instruments and danced to the music.
Fine motor skills
We invited the parents in to join in our activities that help develop our fine motor skills.
Among other activities we enjoyed making snips in paper, rolling and cutting play dough, making patterns with pegs in boards, threading and making shapes with elastic bands on peg boards.
Decorating a Gingerbread Man
Our topic this week is ‘Gingerbread Man’ so what better way to start the week than to decorate a gingerbread man with a member of our family!
We used icing and various toppings such as smarties, sprinkles, raisins and chocolate buttons.
We invited parents in so they could have the opportunity to watch (and join in!) with a P.E session, it was a great way to show them the things their children do during P.E.
It got a little competitive during the penalty shootout and dodgeball but the parents were good losers!
Parents were invited to come and share books with their child.
Together we listened to Nicki read the story ’Shark in the Dark’ by Nick Sharratt, this is one of our favourites!
We invited the parents to come and share some maths activities with us. We enjoyed making pictures with shapes, designing repeating patterns with bears, categorising depending on size and counting pennies to match numerals.
