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. Continue with your Art challenge task: For the next 30 days, you could complete the art challenge below. Please do not worry if your picture is not exactly 5cm x 5cm as long as it’s a small piece of paper so that at the end your drawings can all be put together to create your very own 30-day art collage. I can’t wait all those amazing drawings!  


2. Speaking task: Goodies and baddies! Show them some ‘Goodies and baddies cards’. Introduce each card by holding it up and asking them ‘Who is this?’ Challenge them to name each of the characters and say whether they think they are a ‘goodie’ or ‘baddie’. Sort the characters into two groups accordingly. Could you then say or write some characteristic cards for some of the characters? For example, dangerous wolf, or evil stepmother


3. Malleable task: Create a tray of messy play. You could use shaving foam, bubble bath and water, add paint or food colouring. Once you have your messy tray ready, using different materials can you make different patterns, numbers or letter sounds. You could use a fork, paint brush or your fingers as different tools.
