Good morning Pre-School and welcome to Marvellous Monday!

Click on the link below to see which story we will be looking at this week and meet the characters.
Reading and Expressive Arts and Design
Listen with Miss Walton to the story of The Gruffalo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orelMeE7lY8&feature=youtu.be if you have your own book read along with your grown up.
Can you join in with the animals: Where are you going to Little Brown Mouse make your voice sound like a fox, a hissing snake and an owl!
Try a squeaky mouse voice to say “I’m going to have lunch with a Gruffalo!”
Look at the picture carefully and see if you can answer the questions.
How many animals can you see?
Who is orange?
Are the trees tall or small?
Where is the mouse?
What do you think the fox wants to do with the mouse?
Make your own Gruffalo story props using cardboard rolls (the inside of kitchen roll is perfect) and a box… use the pictures to help you make your own.
Today we are going to practise saying our number names in order and count the animals in our story:
Can you put a mark for every animal you count on the sheet.
The Gruffalo has his very own website! If you would like try some Gruffalo activities on—line click on the link below:

Bean Bag Olympics
Materials Needed: Bean bag or soft ball or a rolled up sock, masking tape or draw and mark a line with chalk.
Tape/draw 2 lines on the floor or carpet.
Have the children stand at one of the lines.
They each should have one bean bag/sock/ball.
Challenge the children to get the bean bag to the other line in different ways by using different body muscles:
Throw with your hands.
Place on the top of your hand (not the palm) and try to toss it to the line.
Place the bean bag on the top of your foot and try to kick-toss it to the other line.
Try tossing it only using 2 fingers.
Try it tossing it backwards over your head!
Can you think of any other body parts you could use?
