Excellent work today, now that you are all sweaty having worked hard and had some exercise you can now relax and give your body and mind some rest for a few minutes.

To do so your next challenge is to listen to your favourite relaxing song in a comfortable position and close your eyes until the song is finished.

Not to worry if you can think of any there are a whole list of warm up activities and links to children’s music on the “Alternative to Movement” post.

Thanks for your hard work and stay safe.

Phew! that was fun.


Time for some maths.

It’s time for a Sock Party.

Two makes a pair.

Find as many socks as you can in your house.

How many pairs of socks are there and how many with no match?

How did you count the socks?

Can you sort the socks in to pairs (2 matching socks)?

If I have 5 pairs of socks how many socks is that all together?

How do you know?

What else could you count in pairs?

Let me know how you get on.

Time for Numberjacks.  Today we are on episode 7.


How about a bit of Art with David?

Beautiful butterflies today.  I’ve seen butterflies in my garden this week have you?  You don’t need much stuff to make the butterfly footprints.  Why not have a try and send me a photo?



Can you use your footprint with some paint to create the wings of a butterfly?

Can you create a Butterfly painting using symmetry?

Here is a link to a video to show you how it is done:


Perhaps you could have a go at making sensory butterflies. For this you will need a plastic food bag, a pipe cleaners and something to fill inside such as pom poms, paint or cut pieces of paper:

Enjoy whatever you create and have fun 🙂

Story Time!

That was great!

Time for some Jobs.

Which job will you do? You must all be experts by now!

HWB Lets get outside.

Take some photos and let me know what you have been touching.

Music – It’s sing along with Connie today. Scroll down the blog to find her post.

Finally lets finish off the usual way with some relaxation.
