Draw a map

Set up a photo shoot

Use a camera or phone to take some pictures for a photo shoot, it could be of your grown up, a certain room or a pet – what different pictures can you get? How do they look?

Help your grown up tidy/clean up 1 thing

You could make your bed, help with dusting or sweeping or even help wash the pots. See if you can help your grown ups keep the house clean and tidy.

Write a postcard to your teacher

We’re really missing you from school! We would love you to write a  postcard for us to read when you get back, tell us all about what you’ve been up to using your sounds and don’t forget finger spaces!


 What can you build?

Can you build a tower out of lego, cards or paper? What shapes are in it? You can build anything you like out of anything you can find.

Week 1 activity ideas

Please remember that you can put any pictures of learning you have done in the learning journal given to you by school. We would love to see what you have been up to!

Build a Fort

Use whatever you can find around the house to build somewhere to feel safe and happy (this could be cushions, blankets or anything else to make it nice and cosy.)


Go on a spring walk

This could be anywhere, the park, a forest or even just in your garden, spend some time outside looking at the world around you.


Make up a dance to some music

Play some music (it could be anything you like!) And see if you can make up a dance routine to practice and show off with a grown up.


Play shops

Pretend to have a shop and sell different things to your grown up for their real pounds and pennies. You could pretend to sell your toys, different foods or anything you like. Talk about how different coins are worth different numbers.

Make some paper puppets to retell a story

Read a story with a grown up and make some paper puppets for the characters. Then see if you can act out the story together or make up a whole new one.
