Quick fire mental maths- Doubles to 10. Number bonds to 10.


All Children- Place food items in each of 2 shopping bags, so that 1 bag is notably heavier than the other, (but safe enough for your child to hold in 1 hand). Explain to your child that 1 bag is heavier than the other. Show your child how to act like a balance, with the heavier bag pulling you to 1 side. Can you have a go now? No can you look in the bag and take out 1 heavy object and 1 light. Compare weights in their hands.

Most Children-Play the balance game by moving your body. Which is the heaviest bag?

Challenge- Encourage reasoning. How can we arrange the items to make the bags balance?


To identify familiar smells- Continue from yesterday

Talk about smells. What part of the body do we smell with? Discuss favourite smells, nasty smells, smells that remind us of people or places, smells that warn us of danger. Perhaps over the week you can encourage your child to close their eyes and identify familiar smells- toothpaste, vinegar flowers, soap etc.

Please don't get too close to the substances as not to inhale.


Make percussion sticks

There are lots of ways of using sticks to make a noise and beat a rhythm, such as dragging them along a metal railings, hitting them together or playing percussion instruments such as a bottle percussion.

Choose 2 sturdy sticks about 40cm long. You can use them as they are or peel back the bark and decorate.

Fill glass bottles or empty jars with different amounts of water and some food colouring

Line the bottles up and play a tune. Take it in turns with your family to name that tune. 



My legs make a stable triangle- Jump your feet apart.

I stretch out my arms- Turn right foot out and left arm in. Lift your arms.

I extend and reach out- Tilt sideways over right leg and stretch arms wide.

I make triangles- Lower your hand to your ankle.

What are 3 things you think about when you do yoga? Ask your family the same question? Where do you see triangles in the world around you? Can you share your favourite yoga moves with someone you haven't seen for a long time?

Weekly Welsh

Create a welsh poem about food (bwyd)

Bwyd, bwyd, bwyd

Dw i'n hoffi bwyd

Dw i'n hoffi afal

Dw i'n hoffi oren

Dw i'n hoffi mefus

You can make this more challenging by using adjectives. For eg. bananas melyn, mefus coch.
