Learning Project - To be completed throughout the week

Here is an overview of tasks I’d like the EYFS children to be completing at home over the next  week..

Understanding Our World

Can you think about a fruit or vegetable, how does it grow? Where does it grow? Could you research about how it grows? What does the seed, that it grows, from look like?


Write in your Bean Diary (Each week – long term project as it grows)

Please send us your bean’s progress on Tapestry, we would love to see how they are growing.

Is your bean growing? What has happened so far?

Can you draw and label a picture of it?



Can you draw the fruit or vegetable plant that you have researched? Can you draw the fruit of vegetable that grows on the plant? What does it look like inside? What colours can you see? 

If you are using paint can you try mixing the colours yourself? What colours do you need?


Listen to one of our class favourite songs from EYFS Activity and Song links and sing-along to them. Can you remember the signs we have learnt for the words?


Take part in cooking activities at home. Can you help prepare your meals? What equipment do you need to use? What do you need to make sure you do before you start cooking? What are jobs only your adult can do? What are jobs you can help with?


Relax and unwind with some yoga from  Cosmic Kids.

Take part in the daily Joe Wicks School Gym Workout,, why not see if your adults and siblings will join in.

Could you make up your own game to raise your heart rate?



Look at some old photographs you have in your house. Who is in them? What are they doing? Where are they? Can you see what season it is? 



Could you take a photo yourself to upload to Tapestry of something that made you smile this week?

Can you use the emojis to log into Wonde yourself?



Read the story and think about how we can grow and be more like Jesus during Lent. Can you write your ideas down on leaves and make your own growing tree?
