Here you will find links to our Wake up, Shake up routines as well as some ideas for exercises to give our brains a break at home.
Every morning in Chestnut Class we start our day with 'Wake up, Shake up!' This consists of two songs to work on our Gross Motor Skills and then two activities to work on our Fine Motor Skills.
The first song (came here for love) is a chance to get moving, jump on the spot, move arms, legs, etc. and generally wake up! The second song (rise up) we start by sitting down for and stretching out our legs and stretching to each side. We then stand up and stretch up to the ceiling, out to the side and touch our toes. The children then sit down to complete 2 fine motor activities. Choose 2 activities each day from the list for your child to do after the songs.
We use this song to unwind.
