Maths task:

Today we are going to look at comparing capacity. Check out my video below and help me decide which container will hold the most and least.

Now have a go at gathering your own containers and show an empty, nearly empty, half full, nearly full, and full one. You could test your containers and fill them with different materials such as water, sand, rice, or beads. Does the biggest container always hold the most, even with different materials?

Reading task:

Have a look at the power point story below and answer the questions. Some you may need to choose the answer and others you will need to think and write your own answer for.

  1. The two daughters were Cinderella’s – Sisters, fairy godmother, cousins.
  2. Where did Cinderella go to meet her Prince Charming?
  3. What time did Cinderella need to leave the ball?
  4. The fairy offered Cinderella, a dress and – glass slippers, a ring, earrings.
Draw a picture of your outfit you would wear to a ball.

Topic task: Story maps.          

Today we are going to create a story map of a familiar fairy tale, ‘The three little pigs.’ Firstly, you will need to set up a long roll of paper (you can join A4 sheets together) and have some brightly coloured pens, pencils and felt tips available.

Draw a fairy tale path down the middle of your piece of paper. Write ‘Once upon a time’ and ‘The End’ on separate cards, then sticky tack to opposite ends of the paper roll.

Start by retelling the familiar fairy tale using drawings, speech bubbles, simple sentences, labels, and captions. Check the story is told in the correct sequence, and once you are finished walk along the roll of paper whilst you read aloud the fairy tale. Let’s check if you have missed anything or want to add any more details.  

Why not leave your story map out this week and see if you can retell the story each day? Can you remember the different parts of the story?

Choosing activities:

As part of our EYFS Curriculum the children would access a range of choosing activities and learn together and individually through play. I have set some options for you to choose from below. These do not all need to be completed and can be more independent for your child to complete and play maybe even alongside a sibling.


  1. Maths task: Fill clear plastic bottles with fairy tale treasures such as art materials, Jews, gems, pasta, or rice. Seal the bottles and label them imaginatively. For example, ‘The wicked queen’s jewels’ or ‘The angry giant’s gold.’ Can you tell which bottle is heavier and which is lighter?


2. Creative area: Magical music: You could create your own ribbons and streams to dance with or use props from around the house such as a long scarf to dance with. Check out the music below and create some dance moves.
