Editor of Nursery Education PLUS, Tracey Brand, introduces the ‘About me’ themed activities and offers more ideas for exploring the topic with your children:
“We are all unique and have our own fantastic qualities. Draw attention to each child’s individual interests and create a special coat of arms. There will be lots of action in the ‘Name game’ sound pit as children hurry to find letters and take turns to throw them out too! Young children will love contributing to a shared ‘Fingerprint quilt’. Why not extend this activity with some police role play and fingerprint detectives? We even have a ‘Hand and fingerprints’ activity sheet for you to use.”
