I love YouTube, I follow lots of different channels and watch it whenever I get a chance. Since the boys have been off school though my love for it has grown even more! Lots of people are doing some fab videos for children while they are off school. There’s drawing, storytelling, music, pe, sign language, science, maths, dance, English, history basically you name it, it’s there. I thought I would share our 3 favourites with you.
First up, science. Everyday at 11am Maddie Moate and Greg Foot do a science video. Last week the theme was gardens and this week it’s been the body. It’s a great show there is a quiz, lots of cool facts, demonstrations and usually a make for you to do after. They also include lots of resources for you to print out and use after. Honestly cannot rate this show enough! We have dissected a daffodil, looked for mini beasts, planted tomatoes and potatoes and made bird feeders inspired by the show!
Next we have, sign language. Again everyday at 1pm Natasha Lamb and her sister Kelly-Anne (Kelly-Anne is deaf) do a sign language lesson. So far we have learnt our numbers to 100, greetings, the alphabet, colours, feelings, foods, animals, hobbies and family members. Angus and I especially enjoy it but even Brodie gets excited when Stuart comes home from work and he can show him what he’s learnt. It’s really good and it’s been fun for the boys to learn a new skill.
The last one I’m going to share with you is storytelling. Everyday at 2:30pm Adam Bushnell does a storytelling session on his YouTube channel. He’s a brilliant storyteller and he’s so good at getting the children to think about their own stories and inspiring them to draw and write! Adam goes to schools and libraries regularly and is very good at engaging his audience.
These are our favourites but like I said there are loads of other people and channels on YouTube if these ones don’t float your boat, I’ll leave a list and links below.
