VE day project – Coming together even though we are apart.


We know how much fun you had making rainbows for people to spot on their daily walks so why not create some bunting or posters to display for the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe.

If you would like to have a special day on Friday you may be interested in the Facebook page ‘The Big Neighbourhood VE day 75 family festival…’

Healthy Eating

As we have been learning about The Very hungry Caterpillar last week, I thought we should take a look at eating healthily. 

So, I have a challenge for you, sort all the food in this game that is healthy and unhealthy. I'd love to hear your reasons why! You could tell me by email or on the padlet along with your activity that is available below.


Here is an interactive game to play. Make a healthy lunch box.

        Creative Tasks         

You can use everyday items from around the home to help you with your child's learning. We have given you some ideas for you to explore or you can use the worksheets provided at the bottom of this page. 


Have a go at colour mixing with your child. You can use flowers or potatoes to make prints. 


Or you can make some spring time craft flowers. When making these discuss what happens when things grow. Comment on how things change over periods of time. Can they think of other things that change over time e.g. themselves. You could get baby pictures out to create a timeline. Alternatively they could draw their own timeline adding on important events such as when siblings were born or starting school. 

If you are feeling brave you could make some homemade play dough or slime. This is great for children's fine motor development. They can make numbers, letters, shapes, food....the list is endless!
