Taste-it Tuesday

laughGood morning.


Today is 'Taste-it Tuesday' and we are continuing our topic, celebrating children's abilities now that they are bigger and developing skills to become more independent. 


My idea for today is to make home-made pizza using bread, instead of dough:

  • First, toast a piece of bread to use as the base for your pizza.
  • Next, put tomato puree or ketchup on top and ask your child to spread it.
  • Then, ask your child to sprinkle grated cheese on top.
  • Lastly put in the oven for 5-10 minutes or until cheese has melted.
  • Enjoycheeky

Language and Literacy

Talking to a child whilst engaged in a task, eg. cooking, is a great way to develop language.

Ask your child to tell you how you made your pizza so that you can write the recipe to use next time.

Help the children to remember the order in which you made the pizza.

Talk together- extending children's statements e.g.

  • if child says, "put tomato.."
  • you could say, "yes, we spread tomato puree." or 
  • you could say, "yes, we put tomato puree on the bread."


Mini Maths

Yesterday, we looked at adding by 'counting altogether'.

Today the 'Numberblocks' are adding 1 more:

Two fuzzy creatures can't agree on who is small and who is big, until a couple of surprise guests show up....

Now we are talking about children growing bigger and getting ready for Reception, it is a good time for children to help to get dressed independently (if they are not doing this already).

Initially, it is easier to encourage children to help with dressing, in small ways e.g, 

  • pulling up socks
  • sitting on the floor to take trousers off
  • putting their second arm into a t-shirt after you have helped to put the first arm in the correct sleeve
  • pulling up their zip, after you have joined the sides together
