Good Morning Year R, please see below the activities we would like you to do today. Remember you can take photos (if you have made, shown or drawn something) or use your exercise book to write any sentences or complete any number sentences. You can ask your grown-up to put your work on Tapestry so we can see what you have been up to. Also, please use this link to access daily speed sound phonics:

We hope you have fun!


LO:  I can write simple instructions.


Today for your curriculum task you are going to be making a kite like the boy in the story. Once you have made your kite, we would like you to have a go at writing some instructions to tell someone else how to make their own.

Remember that before you write your instructions you will need to write them a list of equipment they will need. Then you need to make sure that you number each step so that they know which order to do things in.

You could draw pictures of each step to help them see what they have to do.

Once you have written your instructions, you could get one of your family members to test them by following them to make their own kite. If they have a good kite at the end of them then you know you have written some successful instructions!


LO: I can use everyday language to talk about capacity to compare quantities.


Capacity is a measure of how much a container can hold. Work through the linked powerpoint to play a game and learn the language linked to capacity.

Can you find a selection of different containers in your home? Now with your grown up practise the language linked to capacity while exploring how much water each container can hold. You could do this learning in a paddling pool, a bath or a bowl of water! Can you show your grown up full, half full, nearly full, nearly empty and empty? What happens when you pour water from one container to another? What does this tell you about the capacity of each container?

When we cook at home we sometimes use different containers to measure out our ingredients, for example different sized spoons. Please find attached some simple recipes using spoons and cups to measure ingredients- have fun baking!


LO: I can construct with a purpose in mind


This week we have learned about looking after the environment, another way of helping is by reusing plastic. We can make lots of different things from plastic bags, can you think of any?

In the story, the boy turned Stanley into a kite! Can you have a go at making your own kite, either by using a plastic bag or paper.

Think carefully about how you will attach it to your string and how much you can decorate it before it becomes too heavy to fly!

We would love to see if your kites are successful so ask your grown up to video you flying it and put it on Tapestry for us to see!

Stay safe, best wishes from Miss Gill, Miss Baldwin and Mrs Gedge xxx
