You could find a collection of toys from around your home and order them too!



For your phonics task today, we would like you to write a postcard. You could write it if you go on holiday or you could write it from you home. Write it to a family member or friend and tell them about some of the activities you have been doing. You could even post it to them!

Today we would like you to practise sorting by playing a game of 'Guess My Rule'. You will see various different pictures of animals, some of which have been selected. Your job is to decide why they have been chosen. Do they all have four legs? Do they all have wings? Can they all swim? 

Click here to see the rules of the game and the pictures of the animals.

You could find a collection of toys from around your home, sort them in different ways and play this game with an adult. 



Take a look at the shopping list that you created yesterday. If you have all of the ingredients, have a go at creating your recipe!

When you have enoyed creating your cakes, milkshake, fruit salad or other recipe, write some simple instructions of how you made it. Could someone follow your instructions and create the same dish?

For example, 

1. Melt the chocolate.

2. Pour in the rice krispies.

3. Stir with a spoon. 

4. Put the mixture into paper cases. 


Monday 13th July


Apply your knowledge of odd and even numbers to these challenges. 


With an adult can you find a recipe that you would like to try? It could be a recipe to make rice krispie cakes, a milkshake or a fruit salad. Then we would like you to write a shopping list of all the ingredients that you need to make your chosen dish.
