27.4.20 Bicycles

Have fun doing all the learning - but don't forget to post photos of you doing the activities on your Tapestry Page.




This week we are continuing our Topic - 'Tremendous Travel'. We are  going to explore the next form of transport – it has two wheels… can you guess? Yes it’s a bike! Our story focus is 'Mrs Armitage on wheels' by Quentin Blake. Mrs Roscoe is reading this on the bedtime stories on our school website. 


Here is a link to a story teller:


 This bike needs..........’

What else could you add to your bike? Can you think of something Mrs Armitage didn't think of? Lots of children want to be outside at the moment - Talk to your child about what they can add to their bike and where they can go with it in the future, then think of why you might need all the things on your bike.  

Communication and Language 

Play the game Simon says but say Mrs Armitage says… Take it in turns to be the caller,

Discuss the rules of the game and how you feel if one of you broke the rules.


Physical development 


Go on a family bike ride or learn to ride a bike.


Could you ride your bike around the garden and add what you think your bike needs?


Or if it's raining maybe you could build a bike out of objects in your home? 

 This would be a great idea for a rainy day! You could even put a youtube video on the tv of the journey you might take.

Literacy - Reading and Writing

Can you find any more stories about bicycles?

Can you make a label for your bicycle with your name on it?



Look at the shapes on a bicycle. The wheels are circles. How many circles can you find in your home or out on a walk?



Understanding the World

Can you find some pictures of people using bicycles in different countries. I have found some for you to look at.


Look at all the strange things they are carrying!


I hope you're more careful if you carry things on your bicycle!
