Dear Parents,

We have made it to Friday. Here is next week’s learning grid for the final push to half term. It has been lovely to see you on zoom and I am really enjoying seeing everything you have been getting up to. Hopefully there will only be two weeks of home learning after half term when we can be back in school enjoying our learning.

There has been a letter sent out today about our extreme reading challenge, it would be lovely to see all of you reading a book in an unusual place. There will be a prize for the best place. Remember to keep yourself safe and keep within Covid guidelines. I’ll have to get my thinking cap on to see where I can read my book this year.

As always if you have any questions or worries please get in touch. Keep Safe. Mrs March

NEW RESOURCES

LEARNING IDEAS
If you wish to do more learning with your child, here is an additional list of ideas for you to try at home.

• Spend time playing with favourite toys and include talk about what they’re making, thinking, seeing
• Helping with ‘chores’
• Drawing and writing to family, friends, neighbours – listen & record what your child has said about their picture and / or writing
• Practising writing their name – please check for correct letter formation
• Home baking / recipes
• Playdough is easy to make and lasts for over month if stored in an air-tight container. This is great to help fingers develop fine motor skills needed for writing
• Talking about everyday maths – coins, shapes, patterns, counting to 10, 20 and beyond, pairs of numbers that make 10, one more, one less, bigger, smaller, more than, less than… so much maths language…
• Ordering items so they are first, second, third in size, shape or place
• Learning to dress and undress independently
• YouTube has plenty of songs, dances, counting rhymes, action songs the reception children will love… very useful and fun but limit screen time
• Play outside, observe nature, watch things coming back to life in Spring, make footprints…
• Craft and creative activities are always fun – many children love junk modelling
• Noticing ‘People Who Help Us’
• And of course reading and sharing books, books and more books. Discuss favourite and new stories, what will happen next?, what did you like / dislike?, why did a character do a certain thing?, what would you do?, how does the character feel?

WEBSITES
