This week we are starting our 'Marvellous Me' topic, thinking about how we stay safe and healthy. Please see the Parent Mail sent to you to have a look at our curriculum knowledge organiser to find out more about our learning intentions for this half term. Please also see our curriculum provision map on the curriculum overview section of the Early Years section. 


This week we are going to be starting our topic by thinking about how we look after babies - how do we keep babies safe and healthy? What does safe mean? What does healthy mean? Discuss with a grown up.


Below are some suggested stories you may want to listen to this week that you can find on YouTube. Alternatively, you may have some stories about babies at home you may want to share. 

My New Baby by Rachel Fuller

Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes by Mem Fox

There’s a House Inside my Mummy by Giles Andrea

Babies Don’t Eat Pizza by Diane Danzig


Can you have a conversation with a grown up to share some memories of when you were a baby this may be old photos, videos, special objects. Who looked after you? What did you need to be heathy and safe?  


Can you write a list underneath of some of the things you needed to stay safe and healthy when you were a baby, for example, 'c-o-t' or 'm-i-l-k'. You could challenge yourself by then writing a sentence 'A baby needs ....... and .......' or have a go at writing why they need some of those things, for example, a baby needs a cot to sleep. 



Can you have a go at doing the numbers to 20 workout?  


Have a look at the 'popping balloons' PowerPoint. Can a grown up call out a number and see how quickly you can pop that number balloon? Do you recognise all of the numbers?


Can you play this game on Topmarks, it focuses on recognising numerals and counting out amounts. 

There are some other number games on this website you may wish to play this week. 


If you have a dice at home can you play some games like snakes and ladders? Every time you roll the dice can you recognise the number without counting it. We call this subitising. See how quickly you can subitise when rolling the dice!



Can you draw a picture of yourself as a baby - you could use a photograph to help you? Can you draw pictures of some of the things you needed to keep you safe and healthy?


If you have any pretend babies/dolls at home can you look after them throughout the week, thinking about what they need? You might like to set up a pretend doctors surgery or baby clinic and do some -role play.
