Summer Term Learning Activities
There are lots of lovely activities planned this half term that you can do at home to support your child's learning.
Land Art - create a picture or some patterns using natural materials that you find in the outdoor environment, eg: in the garden, beach or woods. There are some ideas below for inspiration.
Photos of summer - using hands as a frame take a 'photo' of summer, or think of a special summer memory. Sketch, paint, colour or collage the picture that is in your head to make your photo.
Baking or cooking - besides making something delicious to enjoy baking is a fantastic opportunity to explore how adding different ingredients and cooking them can change a mixture. Talk to your child about any changes they can see when mixing or adding ingredients from the recipe and compare the differences between being uncooked and cooked food, eg: colour, size, texture, taste, thickness. Why do they think it has changed? For something yummy to make click the link below for a simple Gingerbread recipe!
We always enjoy seeing any pictures or writing from your home learning that you'd like to share with us. You can send or email it to the school office so we can see all the wonderful learning you've been doing.
