EVERY WEEK

Please try to upload pictures of these activities onto the Interactive Learning Diary or the school website (homework section) so that we can see how you are getting on.

Number activities

1) Write out the numbers 0-20 on some paper or card, cut them up and as a grown up to mix up the numbers.  See how quickly you can put them into the correct order.  Ask someone to time you and then see if you can get faster when you try again.

2) Draw circles on a piece of paper and have some different coloured paint. Choose a number between 1 and 20, dip your finger in the paint and add that many petals to one of the circles (making a flower).  Count the petals to check how many you have and write that number in the middle of the circle.  Choose another number and do the same to another circle on your page.  Fill up you page with colourful flowers, each with different amounts of petals.

3) Collect 20 leaves from your garden.  Write the numbers 1-20, one on each leaf, using a thick marker pen.  Make a hole in either end of the leaves and then thread them onto a piece of string - don't forget to put them in the correct order!  Use this homemade number line to help you remember the order of the numbers.

4) Ask an adult to hide the numbers to 20 around your room, house or garden.  See if you can find all 20 and place them in order.  You could ask someone to tell you a number to find.  Can you remember what the number looks like and find it?

5) Complete one of the maths sheets sent home.

General maths activities

1) Look for 2D/3D shapes around the house and in the garden.  Can you describe them so that your mum/dad can recognise the shape you are describing.  Try to use the correct language for the different features e.g. sides, corners and faces.  Build models or pictures using empty packaging or paper shapes and talk about the shapes used.

2) Can you create a repeating pattern using colours and/or shapes? If you can make a repeating pattern of 2 colours can you create a more tricky one?

3) Capacity - this can be done in the sink or during bath time.  Have several different containers and discover which holds the most/least water.  How can you discover this?

4) Weight - What is the heaviest/lightest fruit or vegetable in your kitchen?  Compare these to other objects around your house.  Ensure you are using the correct language of heavier/lighter.

5) Height/Length - make a playdoh snake.  Can you make one that is longer/shorter than your first one?  What is the longest/shortest thing you can find in your house? Pick your favourite toy and build a tower of blocks to discover how tall it is.  Find another toy that is taller/shorter than your favourite, again measure it with blocks, how do the blocks tell you which is the tallest/shortest.

Literacy activities

1) Choose a new book to have read to you.  The adult reading should stop reading in the middle of the story.  Can you guess what will happen at the end?  Were you right?

2) Look through a book.  Can you find any words with more than seven letters?  What is the longest word you can find?

3)Write your name, using a different colour for each letter.  Find other ways to write your name in a different style.

4) Complete one of the phonics games sent home.

5) Write a sentence using one of the digraphs from your jolly phonics book.

Physical developments activities

1) Use your body to pretend to be different animals: Snake - slither across the floor; Butterfly - flutter around the room; Elephant - stomp with both feet; Kangaroo - bounce around; Frog - hop like a frog; Flamingo - stand still on one leg.

2) Try using different types of materials and simple tools.  Use playdoh to knead and make models; thread beads onto laces; use scissors, paintbrushes or crayons to create a masterpiece.

3) Sort food into the correct food groups (using the sheets provided). Use this information to help you to design a balanced meal.

4) Design and make your own smoothie.  Draw your design in your activities home book and then make it.  Do you like it?  Would you do it again?

5) Try some different active activities.  You could try dancing - look on the internet to discover a different style (e.g. Bollywood) and have a go at making up your own dance routine.

Creative/Understanding the world activities

1) Enjoy singing some nursery rhymes. How many times can you sing your favourite in one minute?

2)Choose 20 blocks and build a model.  Can you then use the same blocks to create a different model?

3) Draw/paint your house and label the different features.

4) Create pictures that show the differences between the seasons.

5) Look at ice carefully.  What can you see inside?  Can you find a way to melt the ice?  How could you melt it quicker/slower?

6) Floating and sinking.  Find 10 items from around the house and predict whether you think they will float or if they will sink.  Once you have made your predictions then carry out an experiment to see if you were right.
