China Homework

 From the selection below choose at least 1 activity from each section to carry out with you child.  This is designed to be a pleasurable experience for you all and should include at least one activity your child can have-a-go at with some help. 

Curriculum Area




In phonics we are practicing listening skills and learning new letter sounds. Please look for letters ‘s,a,t,p,i,n’ in the home and practice making these sounds together. Your child can also access the education city website – instructions and login details attached – which has phonics activities suited to their in class work. Please continue to read stories together.


We will be completing work on statistics during this half term. Can your child make bar charts at home (example attached) listing their friends and families hair colour or food. You could go out together and complete a chart showing the different colours of card in your local area. Later in the topic we will be exploring weight and capacity. Can your child be included in cooking at home? Weigh out the ingredients together watching the numbers on the scales.


We will be looking at changes to our body during exercise. Go to in the garden or local park to play and exercise together – what changes can you notice – does your child feel warm, is their heart beating faster, are they starting to sweat? Can your child identify their body parts and which part they use for different exercise. Can they label a picture of themselves with captions such as ‘legs for jumping’ ‘arms for throwing’.


* Create a puppet of a person or a skeleton remembering all the body parts.

* Create a self-portrait using different materials.

* Look at photos from when your child was younger – what changes have happened – can they sequence these pictures.


Find a physical activity your child enjoys, this could be dancing, football, climbing at the park, trampolining etc and find opportunities to do this together as this will support their physical and emotional well being.
