I hope you are enjoying learning about farm animals. Let me know how you are getting on.

Put your sound cards around the room. Can you run to the sound your family shouts out? When you get to the sound can you think of something that begins with that sound?
Choose a teddy, can you put the teddy above you, below you, next to you, in between you and your Mummy/Daddy. Can you use this language to get your family to move your teddy around?
Can you guess the animal? ( I will send your family the Powerpoint with the game on)
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.
Make a music shaker using a yoghurt pot and dried pasta. Join in with the songs on Charanga in the new Animal section.
