- Rhyme - https://www.turtlediary.com/game/words-that-rhyme.html or play a game of silly soup... Sing the first part of the song to the tune of 'Pop Goes the Weasel': I'm making lots of silly soup, I'm making soup that's silly, I'm going to cook it in the fridge, to make it nice and chilly. In goes a fox... a box.... some socks. Then ask your child to suggest other things that rhyme and could be added to the soup.

Children enjoy learning through play, and often talk about their learning as play. This provides inspiration, challenge and ideas for future learning. Self- initiated play and adult led and directed learning, supports children in further developing areas of interest and ensures access to a wide range of opportunities. Please encourage your child to learn through play at home. Don't forget to share your learning with us on Tapestry.
