EYFS Home Learning- 13.07.20 Once There Were Giants

For your last week of home learning we are going to reflect on how much we have grown up and learnt.  We would like you to share the story, ‘Once There Were Giants’ by  Martin Waddell.


Writing Ideas:

  • Write about your favourite memories of Nursery/ Reception.  Who were you friends?  What were your best moments?
  • Complete the all about me information and send it to your new teacher.  [email protected]  or [email protected]

How old are you?  How old will you be on your next Birthday?  What date is your birthday?  Can you say the months of the year?  Find out how old other members of your family are.  can you write their ages?  Who is the oldest/youngest?  You could make some pretend playdough cakes and put candles on the cakes to match different ages.  If you dont have candles use chopped up straws.  Make some age badges.

Try the summer themed activity ideas below:


Topic ideas:

  • look at photos of family members and talk about special times.  You could make a family tree using the template or get creative with your own ideas.
  • Look at photos of yourself and think about how much you have grown and changed since you were born.  Talk about stages of development and order the growth sequencing cards.
  • Find out you shoe size and the shoe sizes of other family members.  How tall are you?
  • Create a self portrait or a family portrait to keep.
