Practice our sound O for octopus - can you make one remembering they need 8 tentacles.

Make a person and label body parts

Label body parts - Draw round a body on some wallpaper, a large piece of cardboard or whatever you can find! Colour/paint and cut out.

Alternatively make a laundry person from all sorts of clothes and add a face.

See how many body parts your child can name and write them down. It is a good time to introduce new language. Think beyond arm and leg and talk about shoulder, elbow, wrist, thigh, calf, ankle etc. You could even talk about what is on the inside of our bodies such as brain, bones, lungs and heart. You can write all your body words directly onto the picture or use postits or tape strips of paper onto the relevant part. Can you child remember the body parts a few days later? Don't forget to take a photo for me to see!

Letters and Sounds: Help your child find the rhyming pairs on the sheet. Talk about when words rhyme they sound the same at the end of the word rather than the beginning i.e. cat, hat, bat, rat. Some children find this difficult to understand especially as we have been focusing on the initial sound in words (alliteration - cat, car, cap, camel etc.)

Rhyming words sheet from your pack.

Maths: Use the 10 frame and numbers to help your child complete the dot to dot sheets in your resources pack.

Monkey images to print out if you are able or draw your own.

Practice counting - Make 5 little monkeys swinging on a tree / bouncing on the bed and sing the rhyme together

Try mark making in a different way: Perhaps you could practice drawing in icing, lentils, rice or dough. Or how about using vehicles!
