Can you imagine if this picture was real? After all of your research last week we know it can't be but let's pretend... Can you make up a story to go with it? What will your story be called? Could this be something to so with the egg that we found on our last Welly Wednesday walk?
Top Tips for Writing Stories;

2. Think about the start, middle and end.
3. Story map it/plan the story.
4. Illustrate your story.
5. Write the words.
6. Have fun!
This week we would have been briefly touching upon time. We start this topic by looking at our daily routines and trying to understand the concept of time. For example, we look at our daily timetable and say first we will, and then after that we will... This helps young children develop a concept of time throughout the day. This is important for them to understand before we start looking at the clock.
We have three days left of this term - can you help your child create a simple timetable for the next three days using pictures to show what you will be doing.
Can you complete one of the practical activities found below to help them understand time, for example - how long does it take you to do 30 star jumps? How many times can you run to the bottom of the garden in 1 minute? How long does it take you to make your bed? Etc.
