Taste-it Tuesday

Good morning. smiley

Let's start today with a few familiar songs:

I'm a spring chicken

Today is 'Taste-it Tuesday'.

As the weather is so sunny and warm at the moment I thought it might be a good time to make some frozen ice lollies or ice cubes.

  • Make some fruit juice or use fresh juice and pour into a small plastic cup/ or yoghurt container.
  • Next, place it carefully in the freezer.
  • When it is beginning to freeze, insert a lolly stick (if you have them) or a reusable straw or teaspoon.
  • Leave to freeze for 3-4 hours.

It might be easier to make fruit juice ice cubes with, or without, the sticks.


Making the fruit lollies or ice cubes provides an excellent opportunity for Mini Maths- 

  • measuring the amount of juice - more/ less
  • filling the pot or cup - empty, a little bit more, half-full, full
  • counting how many sticks/ cups/ bowls you will need
  • counting how many lollies you have made
  • sharing the ice cubes between children's cups so that it is fair

We started our new topic on 'Transport' yesterday.

Look at the pictures below and ask your child to match the correct name to each of them.

Next, play a game of 'I spy...' emphasising the initial sound of the word.

This book is excellent for promoting talk as there are only a few words on each page.

Challenge-This book also provides an opportunity for you or your child to point to each  word as it is read.
