Have a go at the activities below. If it becomes too stressful and you can't get your child to do it, leave it and return to it later. Let me know if you need any help with anything. There is not the expectation for you to do all of it.

Watch Geraldine Giraffe. https://youtu.be/Oiu_YmW_Efk
Can you find things around your house beginning with h? Take a picture of all the things that you found and email a picture or stick it in your book.
If you have a dice: Roll the dice, count the spots and then go and collect that amount of items from around the house.
If you don’t have a dice: Use your number cards in your class pack, 1-6. Turn them face down, pick as card. Go and collect that amount of items from around the house.
This is to focus on one-to-one counting. Make sure you touch each item as you say the numbers.

Talk about what you can see in the picture. Encourage the use of words such as he/ she and action words ending in ing. When you have talked about the picture you can then reveal the sentence. Some of you will be able to read the sentence. Some of you will just be spying sounds that we have learnt.
Use the play dough to get your muscles working. Make sure you are standing up at a table if you can so you are using the muscles in your shoulders and upper arms as well. Can you make a caterpillar in your play dough? Email a picture or stick it in your book.
