Please use the 'Tapestry' app or the 'home learning' book to share evidence of your child's learning, This will mean at the end of the school year we will have a complete record of their achievements.
If you have any questions please contact me at
firstname.lastname@example.org and I will reply as soon as possible during the school week.
- Ask a grown up to help you collect some food in packets, tins or boxes from your kitchen cupboards. Look at them together to see if you can name the food items.
- Do you recognise any of the labels? I found some beans from Tesco.
- Can you use the tins, packets or boxes to make different towers?
- Can you make a tower to match the numbers 1,2,3,4 and 5?
- Look in a mirror and draw a picture of yourself in your 'home learning' book.
- Look really carefully and don’t miss anything.
- When you’ve finished your picture, can you find crayons to colour your eyes and your hair?
Mark making challenge
- When you have finished your picture can you make marks to represent your name?
- You could ask a grown up to write your name in lower case letters for you to copy underneath.
- At school the children enjoy making their own play dough.
- I have attached the recipe that we use.
- The children and I make it together all the time and it only takes a few minutes.
Play dough recipe:
- 2 cups plain flour
- half to one cup warm water
- 2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil (or any sort of edible kitchen oil)
- half a cup of table salt (this is optional, but acts as a preservative and adds a bit of extra texture and body to the dough)
How to make the play dough:
- Add the flour, oil and salt to a bowl and stir
- Add a couple of tablespoons of water to the bowl and start mixing gently
- Slowly add more water as required until you get a play dough consistency
- If the dough feels to sticky add more flour and more water if it is too dry.
- The dough will keep for a few days in the fridge in a sealed container.
What can you make will the play dough?
- Can you find something in your house starting with the ‘s’ sound?
- How many things can you find?
