Try a ‘Wild Workout’ for your Wednesday morning exercise
White Rose Maths
Today’s activities look at problems and dangers. Discuss with your adult what the danger might be for each of the pictures listed and how the snail could be careful. This links well with the ‘Health and self-care’ section of the Early Years curriculum.
Today I would like you to have a go at moving around like some jungle animals. First of all, to warm up, watch the web-link and have go at moving like the animals in the video.
Now I would like you to experiment with different ways of moving for jungle animals. Think carefully about how you think each animal would move based on their size and their characteristics. For example, would a snake by flying in the sky? Would an elephant be crawling on the ground? Think about animals such as… gorilla, jaguar, sloth, toucan, orangutan. parrot, chimpanzee, giraffe, snake…or even choose your own.
Have a practice and then decide on an order you would like to perform your animal movements in. Use the web link for jungle music to perform your movements to.
