In phonics, we have been learning the sounds m, a, s, d, t you could watch the following clips and complete the activities below.
We are currently focusing on numbers 0-5 and have begun matching numerals to quantities. Here is a selection of games that support this development.
Due to the wet weather we were going to have a yoga session. The link below is a Cosmic yoga session you can try at home.
Power of Reading
We have been looking at principle characters and story scenes in Power of Reading. Please read a story with your child and ask them who the main character is and where the story takes place. You can take a photo and add your child's answers to their Tapestry Learning Journey.
Outdoor learning activities
Learning with and learning from nature: Don't let rain stop play!
Here is a selection of outdoor learning activities for you to try at home. We'd love to share your photographs at school so please send us your pictures via Tapestry.
Rustle up a mud pie
First, mix up some mud, then grab a handful and squeeze it so that it drips out between your fingers and then decorate it with natural objects.
Can you make a den that keeps out the rain?
Ask your child to guess how many splashes it will take before the puddle’s gone.
Can you see your reflection in the puddle?
Measure rainfall with your own rain gauge
Measure how much rain falls in an hour, or even in a day, with this simple gauge.
Cut the top off a plastic drinks bottle with scissors or a sharp knife (definitely get an adult to do this for you!). Put some small stones in the bottom of the bottle (so it doesn’t fall over), then turn the top (the bit you cut off) upside down and sit it on the base so it makes a funnel. Attach it with sticky tape. Use a ruler and waterproof felt tip to mark a scale up the side (make sure your scale starts after the stones).
Pull-on your wellies and waterproofs, get out there and have some fun!
Children's books are changed every Monday. It is important to listen to and read to your child at least 4 days per week. It is also helpful if this is recorded in your child's reading record too.
