Physical development: Colour sheep sheet from resources pack drawing spirals/circles for curly wool. The farmer needs to keep his sheep fenced in so they don't get lost. Draw a fence ensuring lines are drawn from top to bottom (this is practice for when we learn to write letters which always start at the top like l, h, b, r, m etc).
Maths: Hide numbers 1-5 or 1-10 outside or around the room. Ask you child to hunt for them and order onto the 5 or 10 frame.

Mix the flour and salt, add the water and stir until it comes together into a ball. Shape into your chosen model.
If you want to it can be baked and painted when hard.
Preheat the oven to its lowest setting and line a baking tray with baking parchment. Put your finished items on the lined baking sheet and bake for 3 hrs or until solid. The bigger/fatter you model the longer it will take to harden in the oven. Leave to cool and then paint.
You could use cardboard, a plank of wood or a large book. Perhaps create a finish line or add numbers to indicate the distance travelled. Test different vehicles on the ramp to see how far they will go. Talk about the winner, first place and which was last. Use language associated with distance. Which travelled the furthest? You could try rolling cylindrical shapes or balls.

Practice jumping with two feet together like a kangaroo. Perhaps you could put some low obstacles on the ground to jump over.
Did you know a kangaroo moves forward a distance of 2 meters (6'6'') with each jump. However, when fleeing from a predator on flat ground without any obstacles, a single jump is able to cover a distance of 9 meters (almost 30 feet)! Kangaroo jumps can reach a height of 3 meters (9'10''), resulting in a sight like no other.
