Hi everybody, I hope you had a lovely Easter and have managed to enjoy the sunshine.
I have really enjoyed seeing the learning you have all been up to. This term I will put some of the photos you send to me on our class page.
When doing learning at home remember little and often is much better for our children. Try and keep the learning as active as possible and make sure you are having fun.
This term the theme is Animals and this week we will be learning about pets.
Makaton sign for today: Dog
We are going to start learning new sounds this term. This week we will focus on d.
Watch Geraldine Giraffe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65b3vEfskZ4
Can you find things around your house beginning with d? Take a picture of all the things that you found and email a picture or stick it in your book.
Have a go at writing a big d in your book.
Play the game 'What’s the missing number?'
Use numbers 1-5 or 1-10 depending on the numbers your child knows. Put the number cards in a line. Close your eyes and get an adult to take a number away. Which number is missing? Use a number line to help you if needed. Take it in turns to take a number away.
Do you have a pet? If you do can you describe your pet? Can you draw your pet in your book? Maybe you can write their name? If you don’t have a pet maybe you can say what your favourite pet would be and draw a picture.
Communication and language
Talk about what you can see in the picture. Encourage the use of words such as he/ she and action words ending in ing. When you have talked about the picture you can then read the sentence. Some of the pictures I have used might inspire your children to want to ask questions and find out more.
When you get dressed this week try to do as much of it all by yourself. If there is something you find tricky can you work on it all week. Let me know how you get on.
