This week we would like you to share the story, ‘Treasures in the Garden’ . You may then enjoy trying some of the activities below.
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.
While out for a walk or in your garden try some of the maths challenges suggested in the link below. Choose one or two challenges that you will be able to complete.
- 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.
