Ideas & websites to support our topics in EYFS
Some other fun activities to try:
- Try some cooking or baking together and then draw and label the ingredients that you used.
- Create a treasure trail of words around the house/garden with clues describing where to find them. (see below for suitable words and refer to twinkl for specific word lists for phonics phases 2, 3 and 4 words)
- Who has the best memory in your house? … Put a few items on a tray (for example, a crayon, an apple, a building brick, a toy car). Then look, cover, remember and check! Add more items to make to make it more challenging.
- Look at some family photographs. Copy the image in the photograph onto some paper using pencils / crayons / paints. You could write a sentence to explain what is happening in the photo.
- Make a puppet theatre using your teddies and toys to retell a favourite book.
- Play throw and catch using a ball or a soft object. Count how many throws you can successfully complete. After every 2 rallies you could add these up using a numberline eg. 4 + 5 = 9
- Log onto Active Learn and read every day.
- Draw a picture of what you have done and write a sentence about it.
- Write numbers to 20 on post-it notes and place them on the floor. Jump on a number and say the number that is one more / 1 less.
- Go on the website http://www.letters-and-sounds.com/ and play Phase 2 / 3 / 4 games.
- Make a poster about a country. Draw the flag, an animal from that country and other information.
- Cut out shapes and stick them on paper and make a shape picture.
- Find a small box and see how many objects you can fit in the box.
- Count forwards and backwards to 20.
- Write your numbers and letters
- Do some gardening or plant a seed / bulb
- Go on a shape hunt, how many different shapes can you find?
- Write down the different ways that make 10. You can use sweets , buttons, pieces of Lego etc. 3+7=10 4+6=10
Encourage the children to read and write these words. Start by pressing both palms together and ‘stretch’ the word out by separating your hands further apart with each sound in the word whilst saying each sound clearly out loud eg. t – a – p. Then clap hands together and say the finished word –> tap.
