Feather Racing!


The Sunflowers and Snapdragons loved exploring and playing a new game. The children helped Kathryn to decide on different levels of difficulty that they had to attempt to guide either a feather or a ball along the tracks. The children used their perseverance and coordination for this activity as they worked out to blow gently on their feathers and with more force for the heavier objects.

This also gave the children an understanding of the world by learning about the forces needed to help the objects to move.  This is a great activity to help the children to develop their mouth muscles which is needed to produce sounds such as p, g, b and f which are all needed for their communication and phonics development.

The children absolutely loved taking part in this game, showing pride when they were able to complete a level and move on to the next. They worked together and cheered on their friends as they raced to get their object to the finish line first!

Lots of love,

Everyone at Leighs xxx
