Letter snap. Make another set of letters. Shuffle the two sets of letters that you have and then share them out. Take it in turns to put a letter down. (say the sound as you play) If you have a matching letter say SNAP!
You will need a water tray, bucket, bath or sink for maths today. Fill it with water and then find a big container and a small container. Use a spoon and count how many spoonful’s of water it takes to fill up the containers. Which one do you think will need more spoonfuls? Maybe you can predict how many spoonfuls before you start. Maybe you can try it with a big and small spoon. What did you find out?
Writing patterns: Can you make these patterns with your finger? You can use sand, flour, glitter, paint or soil.
What other patterns can you make?
Communication and language
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 read the sentence. Some of the pictures I have used might inspire your children to want to ask questions and find out more.
Physical: How long can you balance for? Use a timer and see how long you can stand on one leg. Then try the other leg. Which leg could you balance longer for? Can you think of any other balances you can do using different parts of your body?
