Tuesday 9th June

Good morning Pre-school, I hope you enjoyed the activities yesterday.

I always like to start the day with a happy song and a little dance to get me moving. This is one of my favourites perhaps you'd like to join in! 

Good Time - Owl City and Carly Rae Jepson

Are you ready for more...

Take a look at what is planned for today. 

Don't forget I'd love to know how you got on, tweet your photos or send me them on our contact page. 

Maths and Physical Development

Today we are going to practise saying our number names in  order. First let’s sing the Hungry Caterpillar counting song:

I hope you enjoyed the song.

Now lets go outside…

Draw a counting caterpillar with your grown up .

Can you jump along it saying the numbers in order,

Can you jump slowly, quickly? Float like a butterfly.

 Grown ups can you give your children a challenge  jump/skip/hop on the end number — can you jump 5 times  say the numbers as you  jump: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 do a star jump to show you’ve finished!


Caterpillar counting...

Physical Development

I bet you are hungry and thirsty after all that counting and jumping— get yourself a little snack and drink.

Mrs Walton made herself a healthy snack using cucumber, tomatoes, raisins and blueberries. Can you make yourself a caterpillar snack? What other fruit or vegetables could you use?  Send me a photo; we could make  the pictures into a pre-school healthy snack recipe book!



Mrs Walton's yummy, healthy snack


Read the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillar again, you could listen with Miss Walton go to the link from yesterday or watch the story, or if you have your own book read it with your grown up. Can you join in with the words: but he was still hungry!

Look at the picture carefully and see if you can answer the questions..


Look closely at the picture, Can you see something green? Is it big or small? Where is the caterpillar going? Why is he crawling to the fruit?

Communication and Language


Now you are going to play an I spy game.

Print off the pictures.  If you don’t have access to a printer draw the pictures or use real food from your cupboard, it doesn’t matter if it is different items to the story.


Fetch the caterpillar you made yesterday, mine’s called Colin!

Lay the pictures on the floor - just use 4 at a time so the children are not having to look at too many. If 4 is too many  try just two.

Say ‘I spy with my little eye, a caterpillar’s lunch to munch …. Choose an item of food to put in your sentence.; for example a delicious red apple.

Get your caterpillar munch the apple.  If the correct picture is chosen your child keeps the card. Give them a round of applause for choosing the right picture. Repeat with other food items from the story.

You could take turns with the children saying I spy with my little eye, the caterpillar’s lunch to munch.’ and choosing different foods to eat.

Understanding the World & Expressive Art and Design

Make your own playdough; it only needs a few store cupboard ingredients.

You will need

· 8 tbsp plain flour

· 2 tbsp table salt

· 60ml warm water

· food colouring

· 1 tbsp vegetable oil 

· Tbsp (Tablespoon 15ml)


1. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl mix together the water, a few drops of food colouring and the oil.

2. Pour the coloured water into the flour mix and bring together with a spoon.

3. Dust a work surface with a little flour and turn out the dough. Knead together for a few minutes to form a smooth, pliable dough. If you want a more intense colour you can work in a few extra drops of food colouring.

4. Store in a plastic sandwich bag (squeeze out the air) in the fridge to keep it fresh.

Make your own Hungry Caterpillar.
