Half Term Activities for F2

 

Hi Foundation, we hope you are all ok. We miss you lots! We have loved seeing all of your hard work over the last few weeks. You have definitely kept us smiling! :)
There are plenty of activities to keep you and your family busy at home over the Half Term. Here are some of your teachers favourite ideas:

 

1. Have you read The Tiger Who Came to Tea? Its one of our favourites at school. You could have a tea party like in the story. (I hope no tigers turn up though) 

2. Go for a walk- what numbers, shapes, colours can you see? You could collect some natural materials to make an art picture with.

 

3. Make a magic potion. What super, sparkly ingredients can you find?   

4. Write a postcard to a friend or maybe a teacher at school to say hello.

 

5. Play BINGO- you could use numbers, diagraphs, bear words, shapes etc. We love to play this at school.

 

6. Do some baking with your family, cookies, cakes, brownies, anything! Baking is a great lesson in measuring, ingredients and of course making delicious goodies. Further down you will find a recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies.

 

7. Put those empty boxes to good use and make a cardboard castle or vehicle. 

 

8. Make a den, get comfy and read your favourite story.

 

9. Try ice excavating- place some toys in a bowl of water and leave to freeze, then have fun digging them out.                                                                                

10. Challenge your grown up to a fun race. See what you can balance on your head or try a sack race using an old pillow case.

 

Happy Half Term!
Love From, Miss Reeves, Mrs Wakeling, Mrs Blundell, Mrs Walsh, Mrs Chilton and Mrs Cropley

 

 

 

Chocolate Chip Cookies

These chocolate chip cookies are truly scrumptious. They’re simple enough for children to get involved and you don’t need many ingredients.

 

Ingredients-

225g Caster Sugar
300g Plain Flour
200g Melted Butter
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 pinch Salt
1 Egg
150g of Chocolate Chips

 

 

Method-

  • Add the sugar and melted butter in a bowl and mix together – a wooden spoon is fine, no need for a whisk.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, vanilla and salt together and add to the sugar and butter mixture. Add the chocolate chips at this stage.
  • Mix together using your hand. Once you get a dough texture, add the egg and knead using your hand again.
  • Spread some butter onto a baking tray. Take some of the dough, roll into ball then flatten a little. Keep them on the small side as they spread out during baking. Also, don’t keep biscuits close to each other otherwise they will get stuck together.
  • Place in the oven and bake at 160C, (gas 3) for 10-20 minutes. The bigger the cookies, the longer they’ll take to cook. They’re ready when the edges are a bit golden.

In Foundation we do much of our learning through play. 

We as teachers often find ideas and inspiration for our play activities online.

Here we are sharing some of our favourite ideas in a collection of insta'ration photos.

Most of these photos are taken from Instagram or Pinterest and you can find more by following the accounts featured here.

We hope that by using the ideas here and in the picture collections higher up the page, you will be inspired to do even more playing and learning together, during this time at home.
