Activity Learning

Maths around the house

Measure items around the house, weigh items around the house to describe them as less or more heavy. Counting and sums can be made fun with items around the house – buttons, coins, dried foods. If you have stairs, use them as a times table ladder – climb a step for each sum!

Writing tasks

Ask your child to write a story on a stimulus; a view, a picture of a person, something they are interested in. Help them with spelling and grammar, suggest new words. Include drawings for a creative flair.

Baking a cake

Whilst making a cake you can teach your child about measurements, create café menus, use money to play cafés whilst incorporating addition and subtraction.

Nature activities

Gather items from your garden (leaves, pine cones, stones, twigs). If you have access to paint you can use these for printing the different textures onto paper, your child could also draw these objects, or catalogue them, describing their properties.

Arts & Crafts

If your resources are limited, repurpose  cardboard boxes and the like for a recycled art project!

Physical Education

Set up an assault course, or a rotating station of different exercises to keep things interesting!
