Today we are going to make Witch’s soup! Explain to your child that the witch only likes to eat soup that rhymes! We need to put some ingredients in that rhyme. Explain what rhyming means and give the children some examples, encouraging them to continue the rhyming string.

With your child, you could have a bowl and a spoon ready – lay the rhyming picture cards in the middle (if you have a printer). Can they put two things into the soup that rhyme. If you don't have a printer, your child could identify the two pictures that rhyme from the screen. 

Maths Use the topmarks game to recap the four  2D shapes that we have learnt about.

Now, using straws or pencils which are all the same size, create a square and rectangle. For the rectangle, you will need to use more pencils/ straws to  make the two sides longer. Challenge your child work this out for themselves first, if they can.
