This website has lots of activities for pupils to complete with an English focus.





If your child did not get a chance to finish something they were working on earlier, then let them continue now. If not, then encourage them to play with something different now, try make something new. Children like repetition and sometimes need encouragement to adapt their play or to try new things that may seem challenging.

11.35– 12.05







This maths site gives daily activities linked to practical activities to support the development of necessary skills to support your child’s mathematical development eg: counting, adding, mathematical language, measuring etc.


If you do not have resources to complete some of theactivities, then you can adapt them eg.if don’t have coloured eggs then you could make some by drawing, decorating and cutting them out of paper.



There are lots of age appropriate games and activities to print. Start with the 3-4 years and if your child finds these too easy then select 5-6 years.


12.35–  13.30


Lunch – Time outside if possible to get some fresh air.

Find out about Spring. Ask your grown-ups, look it up in books or on the internet. Look outside your window or in the garden if you have one. How do we know it is Spring? Can you create something that shows it is Spring? You might want to paint a picture, make a spring garden in a box, make a model of a lamb, grow something or make chicks or flowers using the dough.


https://www.wildlifewatch.org.uk/explore-wildlife/season/spring gives you some ideas and activities that you could look for if you go out for some exercise.


Don’t forget your playdough disco



Have a play if you need it!
