What's that Little Red Riding Hood can hear? 18.6.20

Good morning Nursery! 


I hope everyone is doing well this week. 


During our story, Little Red Riding Hood had to get to Grandma's but where did she have to walk to get to Grandma's? Can you remember? 


That's right, she had to walk through the woods! As she was walking through the woods she heard some noises!


Adults - can you find 3 items or objects that you can use to make noise e.g. a metal spoon tapping a pan, clicking your fingers, clapping, nails tapping on wood, knocking on a door or crunching some paper. 


Choose only 3 noises to make. 


Now your going to play a game together, this is how it works. 


  1. Adults are going to make 3 noises in a row e.g. a metal spoon tapping a pan, clapping and crunching paper. 
  2. Children close their eyes and just listen to the 3 noises. 
  3. When making the noises make sure you repeat them in the same order. 
  4. Ask your child to open their eyes and tell you what they heard. 
  5. Adults make the noises again in the same order but this time see if your child can remember what order they are in and tell you when you have finished. 


This activity is a great listening game and begins to help with the early stages of phonics by being able to hear and blend sounds that they can hear together. 


Good luck, I hope you are able to tell your grown up what noises Little Red Riding Hood could hear. 


Lots of love,
