The Big Summer Plan! – Week One

IMG_0547 summerThis year I am planning ahead! with 5 children home during the summer it is far far easier to have some activities planned and ready to go than to sit back and hope for the best.

I have included some reading practice each day and a little writing practice since one of the children has really struggled to catch up this year and I am very keen to prevent the “summer slide”!

These activities cover children aged 9,7,5,3 and 2 it is a rough guide, if something fun comes along or plans change thats fine this list just ensures that there are no days where we have NOTHING to do all day. In general my children dont have the longest of attention spans so each activity (apart from trips out) would be less than an hour.

I have kept the plans to weekdays only as weekends are always so busy there is no time to be bored!

Week 2 and summer reading list coming soon!
