Home Learning Week beginning

13th July

 

We had a great last week in school, singing our ‘when we started Nursery’ song and reading books all to do with going to big school.

 

We do not have a story this week, but we will continue to upload a few of our favourite stories.  

 

Thank you for all of the Tapestry videos you have sent us over the last few weeks. We will continue to update these over the last week. Thank you for understanding and patience during this time.

 

The Nursery closed it’s doors for the summer on the 10th July. It has been lovely seeing the children and getting to spend these past few weeks with them. It has been a strange year, but we have loved every minute. Thank you for all your support throughout the year and we look forward to seeing you around school. For those who are moving on to a new school, we wish you all the best- you are going to love it! Thank you for being fab Chicks, Goslings and Ducklings.

 

We have posted a poem read by us all on google classroom to say goodbye to you all.

 

A big thank you from us all,

Sarah, Paula, Charmaine, Sophie and Alicia

http://www.letters-and-sounds.com/ This link takes you to a document explaining the different Phases of Phonics.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ksblMiliA8 This clip will help to show the correct pronunciation.

We have started introducing the initial sounds and the correct pronunciation along with the phrase and picture clue. The children will then use these in Reception and further up the school.

This weeks sound is ‘n’. ‘Number nines nodding, n, n, n’

This is a tricky one to sound out, the pronunciation clip above will help with the explanation and getting the sound right.

Have a go at using natural objects to stick down and create the letter?  It would be lovely if you did this for all of the sounds we have done so far, you could build up a collection for your wall or bring them in for us to put up in the classroom.

Maths

This week we will be thinking about time, what do we do throughout our day and the order we do it in. Do you have a routine at home, what do you at different times of the day? At school we have a timetable, e.g. wash hands, snack, then independent learning. Could you make your own timetable pictures and put them into the right order?

Ask a grown up if you can help to bake a cake or make some biscuits together. Can you use the scales to help you to weigh out the ingredients?  On Google Classroom you will find a Power Point activity and a recipe idea.

Have a go at using natural objects to stick down and create the letter?  It would be lovely if you did this for all of the sounds we have done so far, you could build up a collection for your wall or bring them in for us to put up in the classroom.

Perhaps you could go on an insect hunt, what insects can you find in your garden or on a walk with a grown up?

This week we are thinking about measuring using non standard measures. E.g. hands, feet…

Simply lay items on the floor and find out how many hands long they are? Ask a grown up to lie down. Walk one foot at a time, carefully counting each step (one foot in front of the other) I wonder how many feet you can count from their heads to their toes? (See attached file on Google Classroom)

Your feet or hands.

Can you find objects for all three of the sounds you have learnt so far. S,a, t? Put them all into a basket. Make yourself a fishing rod using a stick, some string and a paper clip. Can you hook the items out of the basket? Have a set of cards with the three sounds on- have them face down. Play with a member of your family, take it in turns to turn over the sound cards, can you fish out an object to match the sound card? Make sure you practice saying the sound as you fish.

  • PSHE

Watch the Lovely story about the Hedgehog and Tortoise again with your grown up.Talk to your grown up about it made you feel whilst you were watching the clip. Think about other ways we can show people we care without giving hugs. What did the friends do for each other to make them feel happy and loved?

Up and down,
Up and down,
The waves in the sea go,
Up and down,
All day long.

The sharks in the sea go,
Snap, snap, snap… (hold two hands together, joined at the wrist, to form a mouth, snap open and shut)

The fish in the sea go,
Swish, swish, swish… (swim hands around as fish)

The crabs in the sea go

What can you find in your own or garden to create your own under the sea world. Think about which creatures you might find on your adventure under the sea? You can find a clip all about being under the sea on Google Classrooms.

  • Being Creative.

  • Maths Challenge:

(Numbers.)

The ‘anything can be counted’ game.  It’s important for our children to realise that it’s not just objects that can be counted. We are going to practice our counting skills by counting our steps, claps and jump etc. (The sheet for this activity can be found on Google Classroom)

The ‘Count the actions’ challenge. Use the template on Google classroom to create your own action dice. Draw different actions on each side of the dice. E.g.spin,jump,nod,clap,blink,wave. Throw both dice at the same time. Whichever action it lands on you need to do the number of times that is thrown on the normal dice

You will need:

Can you find objects for all three of the sounds you have learnt so far. S,a, t? Put them all into a basket. Make yourself a fishing rod using a stick, some string and a paper clip. Can you hook the items out of the basket? Have a set of cards with the three sounds on- have them face down. Play with a member of your family, take it in turns to turn over the sound cards, can you fish out an object to match the sound card? Make sure you practice saying the sound as you fish.

  • PSHE

The Whale did a lovely thing for the Snail, cheering him up by taking him on his adventures. Can you cheer someone up by creating a package of kindness for a family member or friend you are unable to see?

What could you put inside the package? Could you include a drawing and write your name too?

We have added a Kindness Bingo Card for you to complete… do share with us all the different things you are doing to reach ‘Bingo!’

After Reading the Go Away Bird, have a chat about how you think the bird was feeling in the book. How would the other birds have felt when they were told to go away?

How were they all feeling at the end of the story?

Have you ever felt this way, what could we do to help others if they are feeling sad?

 

Don’t forget we have added a Reading Bingo Card for you to do at home. How many can you get? Any pictures of you reading will be great to see on Tapestry and we will use to make a display once back at school too.
