# EYFS Home Learning Tasks -Week 8

This week we would like you to share  the story, ‘Treasures in the Garden’ .  You may then enjoy trying some of the activities below.

### Writing ideas:

In the story, Jake explores his garden and finds some imaginary worlds.  Can you describe what you can see in your garden or when you go out for a walk.? You could write a list of things that you can see.

Examples: I can see a shiny pebble.  I saw a pink flower.

You could write a description of the pirate ship or fairy garden that Jake found.

### Topic ideas:

• Make a picture using natural materials that you find outside.  Can you look carefully at the objects you have used?

• In the story Jake loses his teddy.  Can you play a prepositions game using a teddy?  Example; put teddy behind the box.  Put teddy in the shoe.  Put teddy between the pillows.  Use the picture cards.  Can you say where teddy is using positional language like: on, under, between, inside, outside, next to? You could hide teddy in the garden and give each other clues to find him.

• Go on a treasure hunt while out for a walk.  Tick off the things that you see.

• Make your own imaginary world using toys and other things you have at home.  You could make a playground, superhero world or a cave.  Take a picture of the world you create.
• Have a go at copying the patterns.  You could use a pencil or draw them on a tray of salt, chalk them outside or paint them.
