3rd July 2020

Good morning,

Today would be a good day for playing aboard game. Games are good for turn taking and thinking skills.   

Practise your maths and phonics skills on espresso discovery under the foundation stage.  

Whatever you choose to do have fun.

Don't forget to join in with the Zoom meeting today.

2nd July 2020

Good morning,

We are so lucky to be having such lovely weather. Today, if you can, spend some extra time outside (make sure to wear your sun block).

Make a chart of all the animals and insects you see today, write the date at the top of your page and draw a picture of each animal or insects (or you can use the chart in the resources page if you wish). Did you spot more or less than last week? Has anything new visited your garden? I have lived in my house for a very long time and this week for the first time, we have had sparrows visit the garden. I hope they stay.

Ask an adult if you can take some toys into the garden, (playing with toys in a different place can change the game and bring new learning).

Mum and  Dad

I have put a power point on the resources page about transitions, The cautious caterpillar (the book is on twinkl, you can join for free at the moment). It is about moving to a next stage. If you find it helpful, you can go through it with your child. 

Whatever you choose to do, have fun.

We can shine.

Why not investigate the letter r for rescue in espresso discovery

r

This video introduces the lowercase letter ‘r’, including its letter name and sound. It demonstrates how to correctly form the letter on a lined background and encourages children to spot the letter within words.

Good Morning,

 

Understanding the world  

Carrying on from yesterday, I have put another power point in the resources page, We are all different.  

Our families are all different - can your child draw a picture of all the important people in your family?

Maths 

I have put some maths sheets in the resources page so you can work on them together.    

 

Whatever you choose to do, have fun.

Monday 29th June 2020

 

Good Morning,

Understanding the world  

Today we are thinking about: We are all different, we are all the same. Please see the power point at the top of the recourses page. Help your child talk about differences and similarities between themselves and others. You could use a mirror to look in together.   

What makes us different?

What makes us the same?

What things make us special?  For example, the things we like doing.

We all have the right to be happy. Talk about things they enjoy..  

What responsibilities do we have? For example, to be kind to others.  

Can your child draw a picture of their favourite toy or activity (themselves swimming) or someone they care about (grandparents).

Keep practising counting in different ways and solve maths problems, there are lots of games on the espresso page.          

Whatever you choose to do, have fun.

Daily post

Friday 26th June 2020

 

Good Morning,

The weather is going to change soon so enjoy the day. Take time to look and listen to nature with your child. Perhaps you can sit in a shady place  and see how many different animals and insects can you spot?

Creative ideas

It is nice sometimes to create pictures and collages using a variety of different materials. Have a look around the house, you could use netting from fruit packets, old magazines or material, food packets, coloured paper or straws. Once you start looking, I am sure you will find lots of different materials and textures to explore.  You just need some paper glue and imagination to make a wonderful picture. Early years is all about exploring and finding out through play.

Thursday 25th June 2020

Good Morning,

Today is going to be another very hot day. Perhaps you could build a den in the shade in the garden and have a picnic. Maybe share some favourite stories. Books are such a good way for children to learn new vocabulary.

Why not paint some lovely garden flowers, you could show your pictures at the next class Zoom meeting.

 Maths - How many?  

I have put a table in the resources folder for you to record and count how many insects you see today.  

Parents

In the summer months, we are out and about more. I always remind the children about Road Safety and the importance of always holding an adults hand to cross the road.  I have put a Road Safety power point in the resources folder.

Wear something bright when it’s not light (a fun little clip).

Staying safe on the roads

There's lots of traffic on the roads, so it’s very important to learn how to stay safe.
