Friday 8th July 2022

 

Your home learning this week is to think about what job you would like to do when you grow up! I would like you to come dressed as whatever you choose to nursery graduation! I can't wait to see all your wonderful costumes and to have a fabulous time at nursery graduation and the Tea Party! See you on Saturday!

Friday 1st July 2022

 

1. N2 children (Children moving into reception)- Play a game of Fred I spy! Ask an adult to 'Fred Talk' words and see if you can spot the object they are Fred Talking! Parents- Use consonant-vowel-consonant words (CVC) or CCVC words for example:

 

M-u-d     S-ou-p

D-a-d     B-oo-t

M-u-m    F-ee-t

Pan        Road

Pop        Coat

Leg

 

'oo' 'ee' 'ou' 'oa' are all vowel digraphs and together make one sound.

 

1. N1 Children- Go on a listening walk, what sounds can you hear? Can you hear the birds? What bird do you think it might be?

 

2. Play a game using a die/dice to help with faster subitising skills! (the ability to look at a small number of objects and instantly recognise how many objects there are without needing to count).

 

3. PEGS! Pegs are a great form of fine motor! Help peg out the washing or practice using pegs onto something else like in the images below!

2. This week in phonics the N2's have been introduced to 'Fred Talk'. Fred talk helps children understand the sounds in words by pronouncing each sound in the word one at a time. This is a key skill that children will need when they beginning reading in reception. Play this game to help develop children's phonological awareness.

 

Fred’s fridge

During snack or dinner time ask children to help you prepare meals. When you ask them to retrieve an item split the word into sounds. Split the word into the sounds and see if children can reply with the whole word .Adult- "Can you pass me the m-i-l-k?" Children should respond "Milk!". Help your child by speeding up the sounds. Here are some examples:

 

Milk m-i-l-k, juice -j-oo-s; cream c-r-ee-m; eggs e-g-s; corn c-or-n; grape g-r-ay-p; pear p-air; peas p-ee-z; leek l-ee-k

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.

1. Listening walk- During Phase 1 phonics it is important to tune in and listen to environmental sounds. You could go around your house or an outside area with an adult and practise listening carefully to all the different sounds you hear. Talk about what you heard. Did you recognise all the sounds? Were they loud or quiet? Were they long or short sounds?

 

2. We have been talking about the days of the week. Can you recite the days of the week in order? Use this song to help you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXMofxtDPUQ
