  • Do your own sound hunt – look around your home / outside and find things with the sound, search in books for that sound. You could make your own Geraldine video, or take photos of these things!
  • Jolly Phonics p59 Plurals (There is a powerpoint about Plurals included in the printables folder this week)

Writing / Oral Language:

Dramatic play restaurant: 

  • What kind of restaurant? Pizzeria… Indian… a sushi bar… a cafe…
  • What materials will you need? e.g. chairs, tables, cutlery, signs, waiters, chefs, pretend food (check the arts section for ideas!)… you could make an oven from a cardboard box
  • Make a menu for your dream restaurant: What starters, main courses, deserts, sides and drinks would you serve?
  • Role play at the restaurant with your teddies / family – write down their orders and serve delicious food!
  • There are role play resources in the printable folder, but it’s even better if children make their own.
