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)

Week Beginning 18th May 2020
We will be teaching the children to recognise number patterns.
They should learn that they can recall some number facts without having to work them out.
We will learn the number bonds (addition facts) to five.
Click here for a power point to help you teach this.
Use this resource for number bonds to five.
Move on to this power point for a different way to teach this.
Use this work sheet for part whole teaching.
Number of the week is 15 How many ways can you make 15? Can you write 15? What comes before 15 and what come after?
Our topic: PEOPLE WHO HELP US
This week we would be looking at the role of the VET
What do they do? What do they wear? How do they help us?
Download VET photos here
To help with learning about VETS you could read this story by Judith Kerr. Mog and the V E T.
Here are some pictures to use when writing about the story. Use simple sentences such as Mog is sad. Mog went to the vet. She is well. Remember those capital letters, finger space in between words and full stop.
Push and pulls (Forces)
This week we will learn that objects move using a force. Either a push or a pull.
Gather some toys. How do you make them move? Some toys have to be pushed and some pulled.
Make some push and pull labels. Ask you child to put the correct labels on the toys. Then move to objects around the house. The door? the blind? the drawer? the chair? Move on how do cars move? How do trains move? If you had a tractor and trailer is it pushing of pulling? What about bicycles?
Make your own kite using a diamond shaped piece of paper and some sticks and string. To get your kite to fly is it a push or pull????
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 ow (blow the snow) snow, blow, glow, row the boat, mow the lawn.
See the set two sounds here.
Search on Google for Mr Thorne ow 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 ow sound in them?
Can you spot any ow 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.
Here are some instructions on how to make a kite.
Lots of Parents have recommended The Reading bugs app as suitable for Reception children. It is free to download at the moment and looks really good.
