Learning Activities/Web links/Worksheets

 

1

Today is a refresher on describing position and using positional language. 

Please help your child to think about words like:

  • In/inside
  • next to
  • beside
  • in front of
  • behind
  • under
  • over
  • above
  • on
  • between
  • around
  • below
  • outside
  • beneath
  • on top of
  • through

There is a choice of both activities and worksheets, please feel free to do one or the other or to do a mixture of both to help your Childs learning. 

 

Choose one or more of the following:

·        Preposition Listening Worksheet

·        Matching Prepositions Worksheet

·        Preposition Tree Game

·        Preposition Filling in the Blanks Worksheet

·        Positional Language Word Cards

  • Using a box/tub/pot/cup/bowl and a small toy/object, show different positions the toy/object could be in, ask an adult to name positions for you to put the toy/object in.  

  • Build something out of Lego and show various items or Lego figures in different places and positions. Describe to your adult the positions they are in, e.g. the man is in the house, the chair is under the desk, the picture is above the desk.

 

  • Choose 4 small toys or objects to hide around a room in your house. Ask an adult or another member of your household to ask you questions about the position the toy or object might be in, e.g. is the toy in the box? is the teddy on the shelf? Is the car under the table? Once the adult has found the 4 toys, ask them to hide the toys for you and you ask the questions this time.

 

  • Go on a walk and play a positions game with an adult or another member of your household. Ask them to spot an object and you have to guess what it is. Ask them to give you clues to identify the object, e.g. “It is behind the fence.” or “It is in front of the café.” You could also ask them questions, e.g. is it under the tree?

 

  • Play a twist on the game ‘I Spy’ but instead of guessing the word beginning with a certain letter, give clues as to the object’s position, e.g. “I spy with my little eye, something behind the …” or “next to the …”. This could be played inside the house or outside in the garden or on a walk.

 

  • While out in the garden or for a walk with an adult or other members of your household, ask one person to shout positional instructions and everyone else has to follow them. You could say that the last person to do it is ‘out’ and the last person in the game is the winner, or you could just do it for fun. Some examples of instructions could be, “Stand behind the plant pot,” “Stand on top of a path,” “Sit underneath a tree” or “Stand next to the gate.”

 

  • Build an obstacle course in your garden or yard. You could use chairs to go under, steps to go over, pots to go around and a blanket tunnel to crawl through. When you have finished building your obstacle course, model and explain it to another member of your household, using the correct language, e.g. “First, I climb under the chair, then I walk over the steps.” Then, ask the other member of your household to complete it and time them. See if you can beat their time.

2 & 3

Over the next two days help and support your child to look at directions and movement. They will need to start looking at a turn in terms of right angles for quarter, half and three quarter turns, as well as learning the different directions as clockwise and anticlockwise.

 

Have a look at the powerpoint with your child to introduce and describe turns, right angles and direction. Then there is a choice of both activities and worksheets, please feel free to do one or the other or to do a mixture of both to help your Childs learning. There should be enough variety to cover days 2 and 3.

 

First look at this powerpoint

Maths Quarter Turn and Half Turn PowerPoint

Then Choose one or more of the following on both Day 2 and Day 3

Animals Turning Clockwise and Anticlockwise Worksheets

Turning Turtles Worksheet

Clockwise and Anticlockwise Mindfulness Colouring Worksheet

Right Angles as Degrees of Turn Game

Turns – Clockwise and anti clockwise

Clockwise - anticlockwise

 

  • Find the treasure - Hide various objects around the house and/or garden and give clues verbally or written down on a ‘treasure map’ for someone in your household to find the objects.  Ask an adult or someone else in your household to now hide the objects and give you clues how to find them.
    Examples might include, ‘walk forward until you reach…’, ‘turn a quarter turn clockwise,’ or ‘make a half turn anticlockwise’.

 

  • Choose a room or space/place in your house, garden or on a walk and right instructions on how to get to that place, e.g. 'step out the front door, walk down the path, turn a quarter turn clockwise, walk straight for 20 steps....' Give those instructions to another member of your household and see if they can work out where the end destination is meant to be. Are they correct? Now ask another member of the household to write instructions for you to follow.

 

  • Create a town with roads that you can use toy vehicles on. Give instructions to another member of your household to get from one place to another, e.g. 'drive straight until you come to...' or 'make a quarter turn anticlockwise.' Next ask the member of your household to give you instructions. Examples of ways to create a town:
  1. Lego
  2. Junk modelling
  3. Drawing on large piece of paper
  4. Drawing outside with chalk
  5. Toy buildings
  6. playdough

 

  • Draw or paint a simple map of a town and write instructions of how to get to each place from different points on the map. Is there more than one route you can take to each place?

 

  • Gather four different objects/toys and place them in a line on the floor. Turn around and close your Eyes. Ask another member of your household to turn each one a different way (quarter turn clockwise, quarter turn anticlockwise, half turn, whole turn, three quarters clockwise, three quarters anticlockwise). Turn back around and see if you say how each object/toy has turned. Could any of them be more than one answer if you haven't seen which way they have turned?

 

4

Today is all about money and your child being able to practice their money skills.

 

Gather together a few items (food, toys, dvds etc.) and write prices for each item that your child will recognise. Set these out on the floor or table and pretend that you are selling them. Provide your child with a variety of different coins, either real or print and cut out the life size coins sheet. Ask your child to choose one or two items, tell them the total (or see if they can work it out) and get them to work out which coins they could use to pay you for these items. If they seem confident with this you could increase the number of items bought, increase the price of each item or ask them to provide more than one way to make the total with the coins they have.

 

If this is not possible then your child can practice their money skills using the variety of online maths games below.

 

Using the coins provided can you choose the right coins to pay for items that have been displayed and priced for you?

 

Carefully look at the items set up and the price of each one, choose one or two that you would like to pretend to buy, can you work out how much more than one item comes to?

Do you have enough money? Which coins will you use to pay for the items?
