Activity 2 – My thinking and problem solving
Today we are going to create a café in our home.
This role-play activity will create many opportunities to look at several different areas of maths.
- We need to create opening times for our café. In your resources pack, you will a sheet that you can fill in with times that you will be open.
- A menu with prices. What have you got in the cupboards? Create a menu of the favourite treats and snack. Remember to add prices. When it’s time for a snack or lunch, encourage your child to pay for the items they want.
Too easy – Make you child add together the prices of the items they want.
Great idea – Make your child earn their money. Are there little jobs they could help with around the house to earn extra pennies?
Activity 3 – My communication – phonics
- Follow the Youtube link below that will take you to today’s phonics video! The sound focus for today is the ‘qu’ phoneme. In your Day 2 pack there is a phonics parent support sheet. This will help you with the action and rhyme that goes with the ‘qu’ phoneme.
- After, using the ‘Quick Fox’ sheet in your Day 2 resource pack support your child reading the story and spotting all the ‘qu’ phoneme. Circle all the ‘qu’ you find!
Practice writing the ‘qu’ phoneme on the find and write the ‘qu’ word sheet.
