This week we have put together lots of ideas that can keep you busy.

You may want to focus on an activity for the morning and afternoon. But try and make sure you include a Maths and Phonics game each day.

Collect and write: collect some items on a tray from around the house, cover them and see if you can write a list of all the items you had collected.
