Learning and Growing Together

Week beginning: 01.03.21

Hello again! We hope you enjoyed having a go at some of the activities we suggested on last week's Home Learning page. We would love to hear all about what you've been doing at home, don't forget to send us some photos too if you get chance!

Craft Activity:

This week we are starting to think about Spring; a flower that you will see a lot in the Spring is a daffodil. You can find out all about daffodils and other flowers that grow from bulbs by clicking here.

Why not have a go at making a daffodil or maybe you could draw or paint one. Click on the links below for ideas:

Daffodil 1          Daffodil 2          Daffodil 3

You could use crayons, felt tips, tissue paper, card, material, whatever you have at home. 

Physical Activity:

There are lots of different things we can do to practise our fine motor skills so that we develop more control in our hands and fingers. Did you enjoy doing Dough Disco a few weeks ago? Click here for another one to try. Make sure you remember to pinch, roll and squeeze the dough! Well done!

Another good way to develop your fine motor control is to spend time doing jigsaw puzzles, send us a photo of your favourite! 

Don't forget you also need to try and do some physical exercise everyday to keep your body fit and healthy! There are so many different ways you can do this - go for a walk, ride your scooter, kick a ball or run around outside. Why not try another of Andy's Wild Workouts. Enjoy! 

Maths:

This week we'd like you to play a board game with your family using a dice. See if you can identify the 'number' on the dice by recognising the pattern of the dots. If not, you can count the dots to work out how many spaces you can move. A game that you might have at home is Snakes and Ladders, this is a really good one to help you practise your counting! Let us know how you get on...

We're also starting to think about finding one more and one less than a given number. Click here for some Home Learning Challenges to try! Have fun!

Phonics:

This week we are learning to recognise and write the letter 'u'.

Can you think of any words that begin with 'u'? It's a tricky one - umbrella, under, up, uncle. Now have a go at writing 'u'. You could use felt tips, pencil crayons, chalks or wax crayons on paper, or use your finger in sand or salt.

Click here for a letter formation sheet to help you.

Why not try our Phase 1 Phonics activity; it's a listening game and you have to work out what the different sounds are; they're all sounds that you might hear at home. Remember to listen really carefully and see how many you can identify!

 

DON'T FORGET - It's World Book Day on Thursday 4th March! Why not send us a photo of you with your favourite story book. You could also have a go at some of the activities on the 10 Day Reading Countdown Challenge!
