Literacy- Practising letter names- using your alphabet mat or the one pictured below, sing the alphabet song and point to each letter in turn as you sing. Can you find and name all the letters in your name? Have a family member say random letter names and you find the right letter on your mat. Remember letter sounds are different to letter names!

 

Maths- Look at the sheet below showing the very hungry caterpillar. Draw the caterpillars in your work book and use your colours to finish each of the repeating patterns. What colours would come next?

Understanding the World- Follow the instructions below and have a go at growing your own rainbow! Take a picture of your finished rainbow and try to upload it to Tapestry or email Miss Fryer-Saxby!

 

1. Fold over a piece of paper towel and then trim the length to be 7.5 inches (any longer and the rainbow may not connect fully).

TIP: The shorter your piece of paper towel, the better it will connect. Also make sure you are using an absorbent paper towel.

 

2. Draw rectangles of the rainbow colours on each end.

TIP: Add lots of marker to the ends, you want a good amount of dye to travel up the paper towel.

 

3. Place 2 cups with water filled 3/4 full. You only want the bottom of the paper towel in so leave some space from the top of the cup.

Then place the paper towel into the cups, with one end in each cup.

TIP: Do not place the ends too deep in the water or the dye may dissolve into the water instead of moving up the paper towel.

 

4. The washable marker dye will slowly make it’s way up with the water to meet the other side in the center of the paper towel.

5. Leave the paper towel for 10-15 minutes and it will eventually connect the colours together.
