  • Literacy - It is a special day on the 14th of February, called Valentine’s Day, when we show someone how much we love them.  Can you make a card or a picture for someone special, to show them how much you love them.  Use one of card template attached if you would like. Or make a card like the picture below. You will need:

    -Paint
    -Card
    -Toilet/kitchen roll tubes

    Ask your grownup to make a heart shape with the toilet roll tube, then dip into paint and print onto your card! Have a go at writing inside and signing your names.

 

 

 

 

  • Literacy – Don’t forget to keep practising your name writing. What sound does your name begin with? Do you know any more sounds in your name?

 

 

 

  • Maths - Matching hearts activity – see attachment below or draw your own hearts.  On one half of the heart write a number, on the other half draw the correct amount of hearts or dots. Cut the hearts in half then, mix them up. Try and match the hearts correctly; number to correct amounts.

 

 

 

 

  • Maths - Number Writing - Have a go at looking at how to write your numbers.
    Below is a video with some rhymes to help you form your numbers correctly. Can you form them in the air?

  • Maths – How long are you? Use different objects to see how long you are? Ask an adult to measure you with different objects. Pens, cars, paper? How many cars long are you? How many building bricks are you? Measure your brothers or sisters, parents, or an adult who looks after you. What can you find to measure? See attachment below – measuring activity.
  •  

 

  • Phonics - Phonic game – With the sounds we have learnt so far, m, a, s, d and t, write these sounds on pieces of paper or on one piece of paper. Ask an adult to find objects beginning with these sounds. Your job is to sort the objects on to the correct sounds.  Could you send me a photo showing me the objects you sorted onto the correct sounds?

 

 

  • UW - Winter Walk - Go on a walk, walk in the mud, splash in the puddles. Have fun.  If we get some colder weather, see what you can find? Maybe a frozen leaf or cobweb, can you find any berries? Send me some photos of your walking adventure!

 

 

  • UW and EAD – Friday the 12th February is Chinese New Year, which is also called Lunar new year. It is a Chinese festival which celebrates the New Year on the Chinese calendar.  Watch the  Cbeebies link to help explain about Chinese New Year and how Abbie celebrates. https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/chinese-new-year

You could have a go at making your own Chinese lantern. Watch the power point attached below to show you how to make a lantern.  You could add bright colours or glitter.

 

 

  • UW- Have a go at helping an adult make noodle stir fry. I have attached the recipe cards. You may not want to use all the ingredients, they are just suggestions. I would like to see any photos of the yummy stir fries you make. Remember keep safe and listen to your adult.

 

 

  • PD/Fine motor skills - Draw a spiral on a piece of paper.  Starting at the edge of the paper, cut along the line from the outside all the way into the middle. Remember to stay on the lines and take your time. 

 

 

 

  • Fine MotorFor this activity you will need a colander or a kitchen roll tube (with holes in it) and some long, thin resources, preferably pipe cleaners but shoe laces, spaghetti or straws will work too. Take your time to push your pipe cleaners through the holes in the colander or kitchen roll tube. See how many you can do! Can you make them go in one hole and out another?

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • PE – With an adult practise your throwing and catching skills. Begin by standing quite close to someone, when you feel you are getting better, try standing a bit further apart.

 

 

 

  • PE AND PSED - After a busy day try some more cosmic yoga. This one is ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt.’ See link below.
