Reading – We would like your child to read using their reading/alphabet book. We would also like them to listen to a story. This could be their weekend book. Or you may want to have a look at an audio book on Youtube..
Here is the link to The Tiger Who Came To Tea https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9IPZR16fdY Talk to your child about the story, what is their favourite part?
Phonics – Refer to week one of phonic challenges, depending on your child’s level due to age this could be one of the following…
Make a collection of your own noise makers. Think about lots of different things that make a noise and gather them in a box or a bag. Use one of the objects to make a sound for others to guess what it is. You could include things like crisp packets, keys, coins in a pot, a rattle or a squeaky toy.
Emma the explorer has a list of things she needs to take on her adventure but she can’t read it! Can you help her read what she needs to pack her bag? Sound out the words below and then blend the sounds together to read what she needs. You could also draw pictures of the items and label them!

Phonics/writing – Look at the letter l on your letter formation in your purple book. Practise writing the letter on the formation sheet. You could then also try in your purple book. If you have any shaving foam, whipped cream at home, why not try making the sound with your fingers in the foam for fun!
Number – Count to 20 with your child. You can count up to 20 claps/stomps/jumps/stretch etc. Ask your child how many hands they have/how many fingers and how many fingers they have on each hand.
You can also choose a number challenge from the number sheet in their Purple Books….
Write out the numbers 0-10 on some paper or card, cut them up and then ask a grownup to mix the numbers up – don’t peek! Then, see how quickly you can put them into the correct order. You could ask someone to time you and then see if you can get faster when you try again.
Physical – We love kids’ yoga and relaxation time at school, so have a go at trying it at home! Here is a link to COSMIC YOGA, it’s very fun! If the video moves too quickly, you can pause the video to practise a move/pose before moving on!
Creative – Make a map of the journey from your kitchen to your bedroom! Add colours to each room.
Please comment and let me know what activities you’ve been up to and which you are enjoying! You can also comment any questions you have. I’d love to hear from you.
