·         Making numbers with play dough -

If you don’t have play dough at home, then it's easy to make yourself, the recipe is:

  • 8 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 tbsp table salt
  • 60ml warm water
  • food colouring
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

Who is the tallest in your house? Who is the smallest? Can you all stand in height order? - take a picture and send it on EExAT. How about age order too – I wonder if it will be the same order as height?

Phonics game:



Song Sticks.  We all have our favourite song/nursery rhyme (mine is 5 little speckled frogs 🐸) ...let me know what your favourite is and create some song sticks a little like the ones in the picture!  You could use sticks from the garden! Get an adult to video you singing together using the sticks or take a picture... I look forward to seeing them!
