Choosing Time

You work your little socks off each morning with the tasks I set so now it is your turn to choose what you do this afternoon. You might like to choose one of the home learning suggestions below or you might like to play with your own toys and games at home. It is entirely up to you J.


  • Personal, Social & Emotional Development – We are all different. Choose 2 of your friends and draw a picture of yourself with these friends. Think about and discuss the similarities and differences between you all. Different hair and skin colour, different sizes, different homes and different interests for example.  


  • Communication & Language – I Spy! Play ‘I spy with my little eye’ either the traditional version with items beginning with a sound or you might like to play the positional language version some of you played last week as part of our maths activities.



  • Physical Development – Seasonal Walk. Go for a walk to the local park, river or beach if it is safe to do so and you are not isolating. Take a bag and collect different natural items to use for loose part counting and art for example. Things to collect (depending on where you go) could include: leaves, sticks or feathers.   


  • Literacy – Letter Writing. Write a letter to a friend or family member to tell them you are missing them or how much you love them. Maybe you could include a picture you have drawn and write your name on it. Ask an adult to help you write down the address of the person you are sending it to and then take a walk (if it is safe to do so) to the post box to send your letter. 


  • Maths – Shape Hunt. We have been learning about shapes this week and I know lots of you enjoy your scavenger hunts so why not go on another shape hunt around the house and garden. What shapes can you see? Can you draw some of the things you found? Maybe you could make a picture using lots of different 2D shapes. Maybe you could make a model using lots of different 3D shapes.



  • Understanding the World – Family Snaps. Look through family photos. Discuss who the different people are and where the photos were taken. Discuss the changes in the photos from different eras (clothes, locations, transport, etc.). You could make a photobook or even a family tree.


  • Expressive Arts & Design – Playdough. Make your own no cook playdough using the recipe below.
