I hope you are all managing to saty safe and well during the current situation.  Please don't forget to have a look at some of these useful websites that you can access for activities and games:

Please make sure you vary the activities that you do with your children to reflect what would be taught in school. The children need to practice their pencil control, nursery rhymes, counting, shapes, physical activities and learning through play. They will also benefit from lots of stories to help build up their vocabulary as well as being spoken to regularly to help further develop their communication skills.

 

SPRING 2

Welcome back after the February half term. Hope you had a relaxing break. We are now half way through the school year and there is still lots to do!

We have started off the half term learning about 'People who help us'. The topic was introduced with a visit from the local fire brigade. 

We enjoyed seeing the fire engine. The fire fighters let us sit in it and we even got to squirt the hose!! When we got back to class we made some fire engine shape pictures. 

We have watched videos of the fire service in action and we are going to learn a bit more when we look at our non-fiction book on the fire service. 

We will soon be making some model fire engines out of wood - watch out for photographs!!

Later on in the half term we will start to learn about the police and other people who help us. 

Reading/rhymes

We will continue to send home weekly rhymes and story books for you to share with your child/children. Please keep practicing these at home with your child. 

​​When you have read with your child/children, please make a comment in their reading diary. Please note that book bags are only needed in school on a Monday.

 Here are some more ideas to help with Easter based /other activities:

 If you go on www.twinkl.co.uk and search for Easter, there will loads of related activities - these include a power point on the Easter Story, pencil control sheets, Easter chick/rabbit cut and stick activities, easter colouring, Easter home learning challenges, Easter maths activities, and much more.

http://www.themathsfactor.com - lots of math's activities for children aged 4-12. You will have to join but it is free during the period of school closures.

https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/around-the-house-scavenger-hunt-t-sc-2549922 - this is a scavenger hunt that can be done around the house (or even outside in the garden).

https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resources/home-early-years/early-years-class-management/school-closure-home-learning-classroom-management-eyfs-early-years - this link takes you to the Early Years home learning packs. There are a few to choose from.

You may need to set up login details for twinkl but it's free for a month for parents during school closures.

If you still fancy doing a fitness class /PE lesson with the children, then Joe Wicks is your man. He's live on you tube every morning at 9am.

PE with Joe is now back; every week day at 9 am.  If this is not your cuppa, then try a nice walk or a bike ride.

Take care and I will be in touch again soon.

PE and Outdoor Play

 We have enjoyed our PE sessions this half term, although changing into our PE pumps is very tricky business!!
We have done some dancing, using the 'Sticky Kids' CD's as well as having a go on some of the small apparatus. 

 
​Playing outdoors is great fun, especially climbing, playing with the musical instruments, pushing prams and ​riding bikes. 

 
​We have enjoyed some new games recently. We have played 'sharks'; 'horse and jockey'; 'child under the blanket'; 'wake up bear' and 'duck duck goose'. Ask your child to tell you all about them - they played them well and were able to follow all of the instructions.
