I bought the book ‘Katie and the Starry Night, by James Mayhew quite some time ago, but I have never actually used it in school. As the dark nights have started drawing in, the children have been talking about the sky, night time & space & so I thought we might explore a few activities linked around this. I’m afraid I don’t have too many photos to share as we suffered a burglary at home which means I don’t have all of them with me.
Transient Art Inspired by ‘The Starry Night’
… hand-eye coordination & fine motor skills…
Counting, Sorting & Pattern Making with Stars
Mark Making in Coloured Sand
I’ve shared these patterns cards many times before, but if you’ve missed them & would like a copy, you can download them in this post.
Light Panel Play
… with laminated cellophane stars & numbers (& a few buttons)…
Magnatiles on the OHP
We used the numbered stars I shared with you last year in my ‘Space‘ post, shown here in this photo
I don’t have a photo of the way we used them this year, but you can download them here if you’d like a copy: Numbered stars from Rachel (“,)
This was an activity that a couple of the children & I did together. We really enjoyed trying to match some of the glass pebbles with The Starry Night picture…
Sorry I don’t have photos of all the other lovely things we’ve done to share, but thanks for reading anyway!
Would love you to come & say hello! 🙂
