Enjoy snuggling up with some of your favourite books today.
If you have a garden, perhaps you could take a picnic rug outside or build a den inside to read them in!

Let’s go on a Number Hunt!
Write numbers 1-5 (or 1-10 or 1-20) on a piece of paper and cut them out, hide the numbers around the house (or garden) and encourage your child to find them. If you need to, put the correct quantity of dots under the number to support number recognition. Encourage your child to read out the number once is has been found. Good luck!
Extension: once you have successfully found all the numbers can you place them in order?

Today we are focusing on writing our name! If you need to write this down for your child to copy then that is fine, don’t forget we have name cards in our learning packs! Please ensure that you focus on correct letter formation, the names in the learning packs have red arrows on to help. You can work with pen and paper, paint brush and water outdoors on a wall or floor, in sand or soil if you have any or on a paint app on a tablet.
Extension – work towards writing our name without a name card.
Can you write your surname?
