I hope you all had a restful break and are safe and well. 

We will be in touch over the next few days to discuss home learning, until then here are some activities for you to try at home


Start your day with some exercise to get your bodies moving.  Can you follow the actions to this song?  



Can you draw a picture of something you have done at home over the holidays, or something you have seen on a walk.   Practice your phonics by labelling your picture, and have a go at writing a sentence about it.   


Practice counting to 10, and think of a song with numbers in it.   Can you sing, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Once I caught a fish alive, or 5 in the bed and the little one said.   Have a go at writing your numbers 1-10.
