Home Learning France Class
The Early Years are a very important time for your child in their development. Children make the most progress when they learn through play. At home, make sure you are providing lots of first hand opportunities to enhance their learning. This could be by model making, cooking, gardening, collecting natural objects, painting, Arts and crafts, cutting and sticking. Read with your child every day, books for pleasure, books of their choice and information books. I will post websites and worksheets for you to access the Early Year Curriculum. Keep in touch with me by Tapestry. Upload photos and observations of your child and I will check it everyday. Keep Safe and have fun with your children during this difficult time.
You can contact me via Tapestry or email@example.com (please note that I am working in school on Mondays and Tuesdays and so response may be slower on those days)

ART and DESIGN
This week we would look at a French Artist called Cezanne.
Take a look at some of his work here. See how you can be an artist. Can you paint fruit just like Cezanne? Use paint, chalk, felt tips or pencils to get different results.
I look forward to seeing your Cezanne style pictures.
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
At school we would have begun to plant some seeds this week. We look at what is needed to grow a plant (dirt, sun, water)
We predict what is going to happen to our seeds. We plant one seed normally, one seed that we don't water and one seed we don't give any light to. We check each week to see what is happening.

This week make sure your child knows the last of the set one sounds ( sh, ch, th, qu, nk and ng).
Then move on to the set two sound ay (may I Play) may, play, say, day, today
See the set two sounds here.
Search on Google for Mr Thorne ay for excellent demonstrations with Geraldine the Giraffe
Also Alphablocks on BBC for great sounding out and blending.
How many words can you think of that have the ay sound in them?
Can you spot any ay words in a book?
This week make sure your child knows these common words. Both to read and write. Make some flash cards or put them in a sentence to recognise. More able children will be able to write their own sentences.
