Friday 21st January 2022

 

1. This week we have continued to learn the names of the RWI picture cards! 

Continue to check you know the names of each picture, so far we have looked at: Maisie Mountain, Apple and Snake, Dinosaur, Tower and Insect!

 

If you do not have access to a printer ask Miss Mason for a printed version or view the images on an Ipad or tablet.

 

Parents: Please note children are not expected to know the sounds or the letter names, we are just focusing on the image. This is to help the children remember the sound the letter makes and avoid confusion when they begin learning the sounds.

 

2. Miss Linky loves to move like sea creatures! Can you join in? 

    Which is your favourite?    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3iJjUKWrkk

2The Colour Monster. One day, Colour Monster wakes up feeling very confused. His emotions are all over the place; he feels angry, happy, calm, sad and scared all at once! To help him, a little girl shows him what each feeling means through colour. Your task is to talk about the things which make you feel happy, sad, angry, fearful and calm and loved. Choose one of the emotions and take a photo of something that makes you feel that way, upload it to Tapestry.

 

3. Helping at home! This week your helping at home task is to make your own lunch! Have a go (with adult supervision) at making your own lunch. Think about what things you need to prepare and the best order to carry out the task. Don't forget to discuss hygiene when preparing food! 

 

Questions:

 

What must we always do before cooking
and eating? Wash hands!
What things will we need?
What do we need to put on the table?
What do we need to do first, next and last?

Friday 1st October 2021

 

1. Make your very own rainstick! Continue practicing making music at home by mkaing your own rainstick! Does it sound like real rain? https://buggyandbuddy.com/how-to-make-a-rainstick-instrument/

 

2.Helping at home- We are becoming more independent now and I would love to see you helping at home. This week I would like you to help tidy! 

 

Adult Prompts:

Talk about how breaking up tidying into little jobs can make them easier and more fun. If everyone helps, jobs are finished much more quickly. Challenge children to tidy a room for the length of a song. You will need to allocate and specify the task/s, e.g. Put as many toys in the basket while the music is playing, or pick up as many Lego pieces as you can until the music stops. Celebrate your achievements made in the time one song took to play.

 

3. Can you be creative and create an egg box bird feeder?

 https://www.craftsonsea.co.uk/egg-box-bird-feeder/

 

4. Be imaginative! Can you create a cafe in your home?

You can lay a table, add tableware and finishing touches like flowers.  Use play items, make things or use imagination for food, placemats, a kitchen area etc.
