Days of the week

 

Everyday when you get up talk to your grown up about what day it is. You can also tell them what day it was yesterday and what day it will be tomorrow. Practice this everyday and you can all learn one of these days of the week songs!

Activities to do at home

Look at this fantastic hopscotch below. Can you make your own version? Have a go! What shapes will you use? Which instructions will you add? Will you use a timer to see how quickly you can finish your game or will you use a dice and take turns to compete with your family members? We would love to see what you create so make sure you take pictures!

Cooking

 Cooking and baking is a fantastic way to learn different maths concepts. Measuring out ingredients, reading the numbers on the scales, timing how long to cook it, even doubling and halving ingredients sometimes. Why not have a go at cooking something today and putting it up on EExAT to show us?

Bottle Bubbles

Use an empty bottle to create your own bubbles. Try and find different size bottles to test out, you could even make a gigantic bubble blower with sticks and string like below. Mix up the bubble mixture from the recipe below, how big or small can you make your bubbles?

 

Bubble Mixture Ingredients (Basic Recipe)

Quantities based on 1 litre of water, but can easily be scaled up as required!

• 1 litre of tap water

Ideally, the water should be warm/room temperature rather than ice cold.

• 3 tbsp of Washing up liquid (Dish soap)

Fairy is best.

Extra ingredients to make stronger bubbles:

• Roughly 1 tsp of Glycerine 

• 1/2 level tsp Baking Powder

Halves & Quarters 

Look at the pictures below, find some leaves and cut them in half. Can you cut them exactly down the middle? What does half mean?  Now you've made a mini jigsaw can you mix up your halved leaves and find the two matching sides. Are they symmetrical? What does symmetrical mean? Try and find some other things to do this with, I wonder if it works for fruit and flowers. Do you think you could challenge yourself to make it into quarters? Remember that means four equal pieces. 

 

What number can they get up to? Above twenty?

Heavy & Light

Why not make your own set of scales? All you need is a hanger (hang it on a nail or door handle) and strong/boxes. Get your child to collect different items around the house and find out which is heavy/ light and how to make it balance!

 

 

Outside and Inside Activities

SCAVENGER HUNT

 

We've got lots of ideas on here for different types of scavenger hunts you can do in your house and garden (see below). Remember learning doesn't have to be sitting at a table! 

 

Why not challenge your child to find amounts of objects around the house? Use a timer on your phone to time them..."can you beat the timer? Go and find 8 socks..." Once they come back challenge them by asking what is one more, or one less than that number. 

 

 

If you visit the park why don't you try and collect as many different leaves and flowers as possible!

 

Activities around the home:

 

Matching/sorting:

How many pairs can you find?

Whose socks are the longest?

  Whose socks are the shortest?

  Who does the sock belong to?

Measure:

How far can you make the go? Which car goes the furthest? Which car went the shortest distance? Why do you think the car went the furthest? Did the cars travel fast or slow?
