Activity 2: Play football!


Objective: (1) To kick a ball with some accuracy;

(2) To hit a target;

(3) To exercise and have fun


Tonight, England are playing their next match against the Czech Republic in Euro 2020. So why not join in and play a game of football too! 😊


All you need is a ball – large or small it doesn’t really matter – and step into the garden or take a short trip to the park to practise your football skills.


Can you kick the ball?

How far can you kick it?


Try making two simple goal posts by using your coat/jumper/bag and see if you can hit the target to score a goal! How many goals can you score?


You could even record your score using tally marks.


Remember to drink lots of water to keep hydrated, especially if it is a hot day.

Activity 2: Make popcorn!

Objective: (1) To explore change of state;

(2) To use a range of words to describe sound, smell and taste


When you get chance some time today or later this week, you could pick up a small bag of popcorn kernels from the supermarket and make your own popcorn at home together with a grown up.


A simple step-by-step guide can be found here:


Watch as the kernels pop in the pan and change from a kernel seed to a ‘popped’ seed. Think about the sound you hear and what you can smell. Can you also remember some words we have learnt to describe the taste, such as ‘delicious’ and ‘scrumptious’?

Then sit back and watch a family movie as you enjoy your tasty snack! 😊

Making sound effects for a story

Objective: (1) To listen and join in with a story;

(2) To create sound effects for a story


Adding actions and sound effects to stories can really make them come to life.

Today let’s watch and listen to a favourite children’s story – Going on a Bear Hunt – being retold using actions and voice sounds to match the tale. Can you have a go and join in, too?


Now, can you think of other sounds you could add to the story, or even make up your own simple story with sound effects?


You could use your own body to make the sounds (e.g. clapping hands, clicking fingers, stomping feet, rubbing hands together, patting hands on legs, whistling, etc) - or use objects around your home (e.g. pots, pans and spoons, rustling tin foil, popping bubble rub, hitting empty plastic cups together, blowing into an empty bottle, etc).


You could even try recording some of the sounds that you create – we would love to hear them if you do, so please upload  any videos or recordings of what you create to your Tapestry journal! 😊

Pancake flip fitness challenge

Objective: (1) To have fun exercising;
(2) To move in different ways;
(3) To show control and coordination with an object


In readiness for our very own Pancake Day (which we will be celebrating tomorrow), let’s practise tossing paper pancakes and get fit whilst we do it!


Simply scrunch some paper into a ball and squish it flat like a ‘pancake’; then grab a frying pan – this could be a small metal pan borrowed from the kitchen, a toy pan if you have one or, if not, try taping a wooden spoon to the underside of a plastic plate to make your own.


How to play:  Flip your paper pancake in the air and catch it before it hits the floor.


Do this 5 times in a row to win!


But if you drop your pancake you must complete one of the physical challenges (see pictures below) before you try again.


Invite others in the family to join in to make things more fun – who will be the crowned pancake toss champion in your house?

Salt dough hearts

Objective: (1) To follow instructions;

(2) To measure ingredients;

(3) To celebrate Valentine’s Day


Sticking with our Valentines theme today why not try making your own hearts using salt dough.

You just need 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of salt and some water together with a heart shaped template and some paint or felt tip pens.


Follow the recipe (see link below) and invite your child to help identify and measure the ingredients. Whilst mixing the ingredients together, talk about the changes and what they can see, feel and smell.


Tip 1: If you do not have a heart shaped cutter then simply draw a heart on paper or card to make a template; place this on top of the rolled dough and cut around it with a butter knife (being careful to supervise your child if they are cutting).


Tip 2: If you want to make it a hanging heart decoration remember to poke a hole through it somewhere near the top (but not too close to the edge or it will break) – a pencil makes a good-sized hole to place string or ribbon through later on.


Tip 3: Let your hearts air dry for a day to harden or place them in the oven on a low temperature checking regularly so they do not burn.

Or, to dry them quickly, place them in a microwave for just 10 seconds at a time until they are hard.


Tip 4: If you do not have paints, just use felt tips to colour and decorate your heart.

Tuesday 9th February

Making a dragon

Objective: (1) To create for a purpose;

(2) To take part in celebrating Chinese New Year


Dragons are another important symbol for the Chinese during their New Year celebrations - they are a symbol of power, strength and good luck.


Dragons also make cool subjects for more creative ideas, so let’s take a look at some of the things that you could make at home today (or later in the week) using empty egg boxes, paper and cardboard tubes.


Remember, just use what you have available. For instance, if you do not have googly eyes simply draw some eyes on paper and cut & stick them onto your dragon; instead of pom-poms use some rolled up cotton wool or paper; or, instead of tissue paper just cut up any old strips of paper to make the dragon’s flames.


The important thing is the process of making something - it is often far more rewarding for your child when they think of their own ideas to add to their models, so please let them ‘have a go’ and upload your dragons to Tapestry for us to see!

‘Cars’ exercise game

Objective: (1) To have fun exercising;

(2) To move in different ways;

(3) To aim and throw at a target


You can do this game in the garden if you have one or in your living room – just clear a little bit of space to make a small ‘pit stop’ circuit using socks, place a bin (or any box) in the middle; lastly find some old paper to scrunch up and use as ‘tyres’ to throw into the bin.


It’s a game for 2 players but you can also play as one to see how fast you can get all the tyres into the bin and run a lap – can you do it faster next time?


Can you stand further from the bin as an extra challenge?


Remember it’s more fun as a family so ask others to join in for a team work challenge!

Activity 2: ‘I Am the Music Man’ (Actions Song)

(2) To move in different ways;

Here’s a fun song to learn about the names of some new instruments whilst getting active – can you join in and copy the moves, too?


You may want to carry on the song yourself using some of other instruments such as the ones you may have made this week at home;

for example, “I am the music man, I come from far away and I can play….the guitar / the maracas / the flute / the saucepans”, etc.


Why not play an instrument while you sing – enjoy!

‘Little Red Riding Hood’ Story

Objective: (1) To listen to and discuss a story;

(2) To identify ways to keep safe


Watch and listen to ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ read by Mr Pendry (see link below) and have a chat with your child about the story. Think about and discuss the following questions together:


  1. Little Red Riding Hood does not know the wolf but tells him about her grandmother’s house – was that a good idea? What should Red Riding Hood have done instead?
  2. Little Red Riding Hood might like to tell her mother she is scared of walking in the woods by herself. Who can you talk to when you get scared? Who are your safe people? (e.g. family, teachers).
  3. Little Red Riding Hood might like to take someone with her when she goes through the woods. What other things might she be able to do to feel safe?
  4. Little Red Riding Hood hears a strange voice inside Granny’s house. Should she go in the house? What other things might she do? (e.g. hide, go home).

Drawing to music

Objective: (1) To listen and respond to music;
(2) To use art as a means to express feelings, thoughts & ideas;
(3) To give meaning to marks


Drawing along to music is a great listening activity to get your child creating their own art whilst tuning into different sounds.


Simply lay some paper on the floor or table (the bigger the better, so have several sheets ready just in case) and, using crayons, pencils, felt tips or paint brushes, invite your child to listen to a piece of music and encourage them to respond by drawing or painting what they feel or think.


It may be best to listen to the piece of music once through with them first and talk about how they felt – then listen a second and third time whilst drawing.


You can explore this with different types of music but ideally, something without words works really well for the first time  - see below two examples of classical instrumental music to get you started.


Remember, there is no right or wrong in what your child draws, it is just their ideas, feelings and thoughts inspired by the music. Have fun and please share some of your artworks with us if you can!

Making a puppet theatre

Objective: (1) To use follow simple instructions to make a puppet theatre;
(2) To create new props out of junk materials;
(3) To perform a simple story or role play scene using puppets in the theatre


We have made lots of different puppets this week and used them in our play and to maybe even to act out a story or perform our own shows.


So today the final activity is to make your very own puppet theatre stage using an empty cereal box or old show box (see short video below).


Tip: If you don’t have paint just colour in the plain cardboard side of the box using crayons or felt tip pens (or leave it blank to give it a wooden look!).


And instead of curtains on a pencil rail you can simply use an old cloth to lift up and down over the front of the stage to show when the performance is starting or finishing.


Then just use your puppets (or your own play figures / dolls) to put on a show in your new theatre.

Sock puppets

Objective: (1) To use different techniques to make a puppet;
(2) To use hand movements to move your puppet in different ways;
(3) To perform a simple story or role play using puppets


Today we are looking at putting on a show using sock puppets as a simple way to expand our puppet play.


You will find a short CBeebies video (below) on how to make a sock puppet and also really useful tips on how to use and move your hands in certain ways to make your puppet ‘talk’ i.e. to express emotions and feelings.


Remember, if you do not have any buttons, wool or googly eyes, you can simply use an old plain sock with felt tip eyes and mouth drawn on at the end.


The important thing is to encourage your child to make it move, talk and play using their hand gestures.

Try starting off your sock puppet chat with something like ‘Hi Mr Sock, how are you today?’ or tell a story using the opening lines such as ‘Once upon a time there was a sock princess and an evil sock witch…’ Then just see where the play takes you and your child.


If you would like to share your puppet shows with us we would love to see them!

Follow the video to create a cast of characters that your child can use to put on their own puppet show or to use as figures in their small world play – they could be super heroes or princesses, for instance.


You could also try giving each character a different emotion by drawing different expressions on their faces (excited, upset, angry, scared, etc).

Make a paper animal finger puppet

Objective: (1) To follow simple instructions to make a puppet; (2) To use puppets in imaginary role play


Puppets are a great way to encourage imaginary role play and offer endless possibilities to explore new ideas.


So, let’s start with making your very own paper animal finger puppet following the simple instructions in the video below.


Perhaps you can support your child to tell a familiar story using the puppets as ‘actors’, such has the Little Red Hen which we learnt last week. Or you could make up your own story and give each puppet a different voice or character such as the ‘happy cat’ or the ‘angry dog’.

You could even film your finger puppet show and share it with us, we would love to see it!

Story mapping The Little Red Hen

Objective: (1) To sequence a familiar story;
(2) To create a simple story map to retell a familiar story


Now that we have read and role played ‘The Little Red Hen’, another good activity to do with your child to help them remember and retell the story is something called ‘story mapping’. This simply means drawing some of the main events in the story from beginning to end using a pen and paper (see example below and the pdf further down).


Remember, it does not matter if the drawings aren’t very good to look at – the important thing is to use these simple pictures as prompts to retell the story in the correct order.


You may want to watch the video story again (see video below) or use the prompt cards (PDF attached) to help you.


You can draw the map with your child and let them have a go themselves afterwards using your example to copy from.


The video (below) also shows an example of retelling the story using a story map with actions for the animals and events.


You could try something similar with your child using your map; for example, making up animal actions and using the repeated line of “who will help me…?” / “Not I”, etc.


Making story maps and retelling or acting out a story will really help your child to remember and learn and they will find it fun, too.


Here is the video for a story map retelling of ‘The Little Red Hen’:

Happy Monday everyone!!

Activity 2: : Write a letter to (or from) the Little Red Hen

Objective: (1) To listen and talk about a story;
(2) To answer questions to show understanding;
(3) To use phonic skills to begin to write words and sentences


Watch and listen to the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’ (see link below).
At the end of the story have a chat with your child about the main events and characters.

What did the Little Red Hen want to make?
Why did she need help?
What did the other animals do?
How did this make the Little Red Hen feel?
What happened in the beginning, middle and end of the story?


Now, pretend to be the Hen and write a short letter to one of the other animals telling them how you feel.

You will need to support your child to think about the letter sounds they will need and they may need to copy your sentences but that is OK.
For example, ‘Dear Cat, I am sad and upset. You did not help me to make my bread. Can you help me next time? Thank you’.

If you want to, you could write a letter back to the hen e.g. ‘Dear Hen, I am sorry we did not help you. I feel bad. Next time I will help you. Bread is so yummy!’


If sentences are still a little tricky, try drawing the characters instead and making a list of their names e.g. ‘hen’, ‘cat’, ‘duck’, etc.
