Please do not worry about any of these activities. I will be posting videos on Class Dojo every day to support you through everything.
These activities are only short and should not take all day. In EYFS children do short tasks with adults and then access the learning areas, playing with the resources and moving from task to task. I have shared focus tasks with you but please have lots of breaks and allow your child to play with their toys and siblings. Try to go out in the garden when possible and get some fresh air too.
Set out 3 plates. On each plate put a different amount of objects. These could be raisins, grapes or play food.
On the first plate put 3 items, on the second plate put 4 items, on the third plate put 5 items.
Is this fair? Who has the most/least? How many more do you need to make it fair?
Increase the numbers on each plate if they can answer the questions well. Send me a photo on class dojo.
Draw a line down a piece of paper. Write the headings Wants (one the left) and Needs (on the right)
The children can cut out pictures form magazines, catalogues etc and place them in the correct column
You may wish to search for images of food, water, shelter ect on the internet.
If you do not have these resources then you and your child can draw pictures and scribe your ideas.
Come and See - Celebrations
Which celebrations do you enjoy the most? Why?
How do we celebrate?
Who takes part?
Friday - WALT : compare numbers to 5
Show the child a number of different dot plates. Can you find the plate with 4 dots? Can you find the plate with less than 4 dots? Can you put the plates in order? Can you find which number is missing in the sequence?
Friday - Please do this activity and then upload it to Class Dojo on portfolios. I have set this as a specific task.

How can we free the arctic animals from the icebergs?
Place small world toys (these can be any toy of you don't have arctic animals) in a plastic tub with water and put them in the freezer overnight.
Children to draw what they can see.
