2. Snap game:

Play a game of snap by creating your own days of the week cards. Write each day of the week twice on a small piece of paper and lay them face down on floor or table. Play with a partner and pick a card, say the day aloud, e.g. Monday and see if you can find its match. If you find the day to match, e.g., Monday you get to keep the cards. The most cards at the end wins! Good luck.


3. Read the story of ‘The very hungry caterpillar’ or watch the video of the story by clicking the link above.

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. Role-play: Provide a large-sized clothes, shoes, boots and become a giant just like in Jack and the beanstalk. How far can you walk like a giant? What facial expressions will you use?


  1. Malleable area: Make ‘magic soap’ by mixing washing up liquid and shaving foam. You could add glitter and sequins for a fairy tale style.



  1. Construction and small world: Use wooden blocks, cubes, Lego and create your very own castle or tower. Who would you let live there?
