Option 2: Go on numbots and try to pass 2 levels!


Day 2

Read and watch the story again. Could you make the hungry caterpillar using chopped up toilet role? You could paint it and stick it together. Retell the story again using your creation! 

Day 3

Look at the sequencing cards document below. If you can print, you could cut and stick the pictures in order. Or, draw your own pictures in order in your home learning book.

Day 4

Let’s practice talking sentences! Today, have a go at talking about a sentence you would like to write about the book. E.g. The hungry caterpillar got fatter and fatter. Then draw a picture about your sentence!

Day 5

Today, you can write your sentence underneath the picture you drew yesterday. Remember to use finger spaces, capital letters and full stops. Sound out using your phase 2 and 3 sounds. Post your work on Tapestry!

 Here are a few topic ideas for the week. 

 This is one idea I have found that I think the children will like for topic, this can be created on any scale you like.  You don’t have to make butterfly wings like above you could make any shape that the children want and then decorate these using natural resources that can be found on a walk or in the garden. This is a wonderful way to get outside and be present. Noticing the beauty of nature around of us. Having discussions about what they see, identifying different leaves and flowers and having the opportunity to smell and touch these.


Think about your local area or your favourite place to visit. You could use building blocks, Lego or anything you can think of to create a mini version of this place? You could make roads, parks and green areas by using some nature. This is a great way to talk about what's in our local area and the local community. It could also lead onto map making and why not add some small world people to support story telling play.



This is a great one for holistic development. Why not practice scissor skills, look at logos and recognise these, talk about the things you like and don't like, look at print having meaning. If you're struggling for packaging why not print off some logo examples from the internet. Make all of these into a meaningful alphabet scrapbook. You could even add photos of your friends and family under each page. This is a good activity that you can keep adding to other a few days.

Get a bag and a number card (this could be as simple as writing a number on paper) and ask children to collect that number of objects in their bag. To challenge them you could ask them to only collect one type of object (spoons, stones, buttons) or something of a particular colour. Challenge the children by asking how many objects would be in your bag if you added one more or took one away. Children love sorting and organising in different ways. Why not lay down on the carpet and create patterns with the collection of objects.


Could you have a go at growing plants at home?? Maybe you could use egg shells to plant in? Post pictures on tapestry of your child having a go at planting vegetables or flowers.
