This week we are continuing our Topic - 'Tremendous Travel'. This week we are going to explore the next form of transport – it has four wheels… can you guess? Our story focus is ‘Duck in the Truck’ by Jez Alborough. Please follow the you tube link to hear the story being read.
What do we use cars for?
Where can you go in a car?
Can your child name different types of vehicles with four wheels?
During COVID-19 lockdown we haven’t been able to travel as much as normal.
COVID-19 bear has some questions you could discuss with your child about traveling during COVID-19 lockdown and what they might like to do/or places they would like to go after lockdown.
Can you find some stories to read about cars or car journeys?
Can you use some of your toy cars and other toys to make up a story - maybe an adult could write it down.
Could you video your story and add it to Tapestry?
If you can see a road from your house - you could count car colours. Either make a tally lllll or have a tub for each colour and put a penny or a button in each time you see a car.
Maybe you could choose a car colour when you go out for a walk and see who gets the most in their chosen colour?
Understanding the World
It is important we encourage our children to looks closely at similarities, differences, patterns and change in the environment around them.
How has the lockdown affected the environment?
How has it affected the number of cars on the road?
What else has changed?
Encourage the use of words that help children to express opinions, e.g. ‘busy’, ‘quiet’ and ‘pollution’ etc.
