I can use tools and choose food to make a mini beast roll

                           Snail trail

  • Remove the crusts from square slices of brown bread and flatten them using a rolling pin.
  • Invite the children to select a filling such as cheese spread, jam, Marmite or honey, and spread it over the slice of bread.
  • Starting at one end, help them to carefully roll up the bread into a sausage shape. Slice the rolls into 2cm thick rounds.
  • Stand the spirals of bread on their sides, with the edge of the bread just poking out from the bottom.
  • Let the children add two small pieces of carrot at the join to make stalks for the snail’s eyes.
  • Place some shredded lettuce on a plate and make a ‘trail’ over it using mayonnaise. Encourage the children to arrange the snails around the trail.
  • Enjoy eating them!

If you had fun making these there are some more ideas on this page -

Handwriting

 

Correct letter formation is so important.

When your child goes to Year 1 they will learn cursive writing where the letters all start from the line.  If letter formation is not correct now this will be tricky to do. So our mission is to break any bad habits before we get to Year 1. 

Practise, practise and more practise is the only way!

We also want to try and make our letters sit on the line as well!

There are 4 group types of letters - curly caterpillar letters  (which always start like a curly 'c'), long ladder letters (which are tall and straight) , one armed robot letters (which bounce up off the line) and zig-zag letters (which are made of straight and diagonal lines).

This BBC Bitesize program shows all four types in a fun way!
