- Keep reading to your child everyday – ask them questions about what they have read. Have a look at the bookmark questions we sent out a month ago, this will help you with the type of questions to ask.
- Using Traditional Stories, such as the Three Billy Goats Gruff. Ask your child to act out parts of the story to other members of the family.
- Practice writing CVC words. Say a word, such as peg, your child will then independently write the word using their sound knowledge. Try a harder word which uses a digraph (two letters that make one sound), for example chip.
- Ask your child to look out of the window, what can they see? Your child has to say a sentence out loud to you and then write the sentence using their sound knowledge. Do not worry about spellings at this stage.
- Ask your child to draw a picture. They can label their picture and/or write sentences to match their picture.
- Write a card to their friends or family members.
- Count how many steps there are from the back door to the end of your garden, for example 46. What is one more than 46? What is one less? How would I write the number 46?
- Can you find me anything around the house that is a circle shape? (or any other 2D shape
- Cook with your child, ask them to read the scales on the weighing scales. What is heavy? What is light?
KNOWLEDGE & UNDERSTANDING OF THE WORLD
- In the bath, what items can float? What sinks?
- Using toy cars, can your child make a ramp. Does the car go faster or slower? How else can you make the car go faster? Can you make it go slower?
- When baking or cooking, can your child tell you about the changes that are happening to the food and/or ingredients?
- Go into the Garden and go on a minibeast hunt. What did you find? Can you go on the internet and find out more information?
- Ride their bikes/scooters (following Government guidance)
- Get undressed and dressed on their own.
- Look after their own health and hygiene as much as possible.
EXPRESSIVE ARTS & DESIGN
- Paint or draw a picture
- Create their own mystical creature
- Design their own monster
- Make a nature picture using items they find in the garden – email me a picture of their art work.
- Using pots and pans, can your child create their own song?
- Put music on and ask your child to create their own dance.
- Play with their toys using language and talking
- Can they make a form of transport using construction equipment such as lego?
- Can they make a house for their dolls or animals?
