Welcome to Foundation Stage!
 
 We are really excited about the year ahead and look forward to helping  the children grow in confidence, develop their curiosity and make sense of the world around them. We recognise that little people learn best when they are active and that this learning involves other people, objects, ideas and events. Therefore, we believe that Early Years education should be as practical as possible and our EYFS setting has an ethos of learning through play.

Activity 1
Sing along with 
 
Today for snack you could have a go at making ‘Ants on a log':
You might be able to help your grown-up read the instructions – Can you spot any of your ‘red’ words?  Can you sound any of the other words out?
 
 
Activity 2
Can you match the ant cards into pairs (these will need printing and cutting first) to make number bonds to 10? e.g. find 8 ants and match to 2 ants because 8+2=10.  How else can you make a total of 10 ants?/uploads/Foundation_Stage/T-N-5310-Ant-Themed-Number-Bonds-to-10-Cards_ver_1.pdf
 
I have included a picture below so that you can create your own, if you’d prefer.

 

 
Activity 3

Tuesday 2nd June

Activity 1
Today can you pretend to be an ant?  You could make an ant crown (paper headband with antenna!) and dress up like an ant.  Can you pretend to be an ant walking in the rain?  Can you make an obstacle course with things to crawl under, like ants in their ant hill?
 
Activity 2
You could ask your grown-up to write your ‘red’ words inside an outline of ants.  Can you go on an ant hunt and find them?

If you can, print the Ant 10 frame and see if you can listen carefully to your grown-up on how many ants to put on the ten frame.  If you put 2 ten frames together, you will have 20.  Can you put 12 ants on the frames? (make sure the children understand 12 is 10 and 2)  Try lots of other teen numbers, can you find the right number of ants? /uploads/Foundation_Stage/Picnic Ten Frames.pdf

 
Activity 3
Have a look at ants up close:
You will need four shallow containers. Add one of the following ingredients to each container: sugar, maple syrup, salt, and flour. Set the containers in an area outside where you have seen ants and observe them to see which container they will be attracted to. Are other insects attracted to the same container?
 
If you can’t do this, or don’t spot any you could check out this link:https://education.abc.net.au/minibeast-games/ant/index.html
