Choose one or two of the activities below.
Threading - use string/pipe cleaners and beads/pasta/cut up straws. You could make a pattern using different colours (you could paint the pasta different colours and let is dry before threading it).
Cutting – ask a grown-up to draw different types of lines on a piece of paper: zig-zig, straight, curvy, wiggly. Can you cut on the lines?
Dough disco – use some play-doh to have a go at dough disco. We enjoy using this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3K-CQrjI0uY
Pouring – with your grown-up, collect different sized containers and a jug. Fill the jug with water (and a little food colouring if you have it); can you pour a little bit of water into each container? Try not to spill any. You could add different coloured food colouring into the containers and see what happens when the colours mix.
Personal, social, emotional development
I’ve been feeling very sad that I can’t hug my friends and family at the minute. How have you been feeling? Have a look at the short story below and talk to your grown-up about the different ways you can show family and friends that you love them from a distance.
Understanding the world
Can you think of different people who help us? Who in your house and at school help you? Who might help you when you are poorly or have hurt yourself?
Have a look below at some people who help. Talk to your grown-up about when and how they might help us. Can you match them to the correct picture?
Expressive arts and design
We have lots of superheroes helping us while we are off school. You are all being superheroes by staying at home, keeping a safe distance from people who don’t live in your house and washing your hands lots and lots.
Can you design yourself a super hero mask?
