This week we will be thinking about the story Supertato by Sue Henndra.
Here are some activities that you can try that are linked to the story.
How many different ways do we eat potato?
Talk about this with your child eg mashed potato, chips, jacket potato, crisps.
Make your own Supertato or super vegetable – Draw on the eyes with a marker and add a paper cape with sellotape. Send us a picture via the email we would love to see your creations.
Have a try at vegetable printing or drawing your favourite vegetable.
What colour is it? What shape is it?
Sorting carrots –Which are long, which are short? Can you put them in order from shortest to longest? Use the words long, longest, short and shortest with your child. How many carrots have you got? Count carefully pointing to each carrot as you go.
Evil Pea – If you have frozen peas in your freezer have a look at them in their frozen state. Feel them, what do they feel like? Watch them defrost. How long does it take? Does it defrost more quickly in different places around your house? Use the words “frozen” and “melting” with your child.
Make a sign – tell evil pea to stop being unkind. Ask your child what they want it to say and write this for them. They can add pictures of evil pea and maybe a STOP sign.
Let us know how you get on, by replying to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org
We would love to hear about what you have been doing and are happy to answer any of your questions too.
