Homeschooling

Summer 2 2020

 

Welcome back after half term.  We understand the=at this time continues to be full of uncertainty for families and we want to provide as much routine and structure to homelearning as possible. 

 

Learning packs with a colour theme were sent home before the half term holidays. 

with this in mind, this will be the theme for this week's homelearning.  

 

Enjoy! Don't forget to upload to Tapestry with any learning milestones!

This week, we'll be looking at 'Starting with rhyme'.  

 

Each day will have a rhyme of the day for children to engage with.  

There will be some follow up activities and ideas which you could then try out at home.  

 

Enjoy! 

 

Today's song is 'Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes!'

Let's get moving this Monday morning!

Count up your body parts!

Can your child answer quickly how many eyes/ears/noses they have? 

 

Guess the body part!

Describe the purpose of the body part.  

"Which body part am I? You can hear with me... etc

Can your child tell you which body part you are describing.  Can you reverse the role and let your child be the clue giver?  

 

Doodle time!  

Draw yourself or each other.  Can you remember all of the body parts you just sang about?

 

Make a Monster! 

A great way to practise the vocabulary of body parts is to do a picture dictation. E.g. you say: this is a monster. He has two heads and four eyes, etc. Children have to draw the monster according to the your description. Ensure you use only vocabulary the children have come across before – this can include numbers, colours, sizes and shapes e.g. The monster has four, small, blue, triangular ears.

 

 

Tuesday 9th June 2020

 

'If you're happy and you know it' is a super simple repetitive rhyme which gets children thinking of all of the ways we can express how we are feeling. 

 

It's important, more so than ever to give children the right words to attach how they are feeling to a label to describe it.  

 

When children can communicate how they are feeling using their words, they are more likely to communicate that in a way that is appropriate.  

 

 

If You're Happy and You Know It!

The Bear Went over the mountain! 

 

Another firm favourite with the Nursery children!  

 

Let's learn some positional words.  

You could watch 'We're going on a bear hunt' by Michael Rosen or read it if you have a copy at home. 

 

How about creating your own bear hunt at home?

Hide teddies around the house.  Maybe hide up to 6 and see if your child can collect them all. 

Where did you find them?  Can your child use words to describe where something is?  

On top of, under, in front of, behind etc.

Let's explore counting today with a medley of counting songs.  

 

By now, your child should be able to recite numbers to 10. 

Touch count up to 6 objects, using one number name for each item. 

 

How can you help at home?

 

Go on a scavenger hunt.  

Can you find 4 things that are blue?  

Give your child a basket to collect the items and check them together when they bring them back.

5 Currant Buns in a Baker's Shop

 

A favourite rhyme for the children in Nursery, 

 

Remember that 5 is a waving hand!  

Learn the concept of 'one less'. 

 

Reinforce the language 'that leaves 4...' etc. 

You could use some roleplay cakes and pretend they are your currant buns or even have a try at making some salt dough currant buns which you could 'sell' in your own shop at home.  

 

Use pennies to reinforce the concept of taking away, starting with 5x 1p coins, handing one over to the shopkeeper with each verse.

A simple song to help practice the prepositions on, in, under and by.

The hunt continues...

Nursery are unhappy with Evil Pea's antics.
First he trapped and wrapped the fruit, then he drew on the fruit and vegetables.
Their faces showed they weren't happy!

Well spotted Isabelle!

We looked all over the classroom and eventually found him!
Then he bounced away again! Will we ever catch him!

Rebekah had a great idea...
"If he comes back in through the window, I will catch him in this basket. I'll put a cushion on top. He won't escape then!"

Where's the Monkey?

A song to help children learn prepositions of place.

Week 4 - The freezing of Evil Pea! After many attempts at escape, Nursery decided that we must freeze the Evil Pea to stop his shenanigans! The children problem solved where we would put him, how we could freeze him and how long we needed to leave him in the freezer! We even made signs to warn others not to open the freezer door, just in case he defrosted again!

He's out of the freezer...and he's defrostingβ„οΈβ˜€οΈ

Week 5 Local History Week - School in the Past. We are thinking about what school would have been like in 1915 when it was built and how it has changed over time.

Our walk πŸ‘« to look at school and our local streets

What was school like 100 years ago?

There were no radiators, just open fires...
"I'll keep these on so I don't get burnt!"
We couldn't believe our eyes!
We still have one in our store room!
"It would be scary!"
"The knick knacks are drying!"
We counted on an abacus!
Mrs Hanson tucked us in for a nap!
We thought it was a funny idea to have a sleep...

Autumn 1 - Week beginning 16.9.19: Nursry have begun to explore their new topic and have been thinking about what makes them unique. We looked at our faces and drew what we could see! We then made some yummy biscuits to look like us!

Autumn 1 - Week beginning 23.9.19: Nursery have explored their body shapes using Tap-A-Shape. We learned that we have one head, one body, two arms, two hands, two legs and two feet. We even know that we have five digits on each hand and each foot! We remembered where to place them to build ourselves using the pieces. We took care to use the hammers and pins carefully.
