As we continue to work through the school year, we hope that we do not have to close our bubble. However, in the event that we do, (or that your child needs to self-isolate away from school) here is the work that the children will need to access. I will keep updating it as appropriate so that the remote learning matches the content that would be happening in the classroom.
We are starting to help the children to write their first name by tracing the different letters on their name card. Some children are now copying the different letters from their name underneath. Please can you help your child to begin to write their name using recognisable letters. Here are some examples of the children’s work.
This week we will be exploring a range of activities linked to the different aspects of phase 1 from Letters and Sounds.
- We will be learning to blend different sounds together in order to be able to find different cvc objects for example, cat, dog, pig and pen.
- We are going to be learning about rhyming words by singing rhyming soup and looking at several different words that rhyme.
- We are going to try to identify and talk about different instruments and what they sound like by listening to a range of video sound clips.
- We are going to be learning about Alliteration focusing on the sounds t and m. (Thinking of and finding different objects that begin with these sounds)
- We are going to be singing different nursery rhymes and exploring different instruments.
Please can you practise re-telling and performing the following poems:
- Chop Chop
- Leaves are falling
- Breezy Weather
- Wise old owl
- Apples in a basket

In maths we are going to be learning about the number 4 this week.
We will begin by watching the number blocks clip for number 4 and then will encourage the children to take part in several activities linked to number 4.
Please keep helping your child to recognise the different numbers up to 4 around the house, in books, on street signs etc.
Each week new tasks will be set. There are helpful videos for you and your child to watch together. Your child will receive progress points and certificates for taking part in the different activities.
Why not try yoga with your child to help them to calm down but also to get exercise too. It is a little website called Cosmic Kids yoga and it has several types of yoga based on different stories. For example, the hungry caterpillar, Room on a broom, Frozen. See which story you and your child like the best.
