This week’s home learning is going to concentrate on the book Handa's Surprise, by Eileen Browne. In the story, Handa puts seven delicious fruits in a basket to take to her friend, Akeyo. But as she walks, carrying the basket on her head, various creatures steal her fruits. When she shares her basket with Akeyo, it's Handa who gets the biggest surprise.  This is one of our Fabulous Five stories so please watch this clip at least once a day so that you can really get to know it

Help your child by practising writing their name each day. If they are finding it hard to form the sounds in their name, write a large one for them and let them go over the top of yours. Once they have got the hang of it, let them try again independently. Encourage them to hold a pencil correctly as shown below.

I'm sorry that some of you are unable to come into school right now but on this page, you will find home learning for you to do daily. The MOST important task that you can do at home is to read every day. Please use your online Reading Eggs account to access online books and other fun activities. I will be looking to see who is logging onto their account.... if you have lost your log on details please contact the school so that we can send them out to you again.

Tomorrow I would like you to practise your initial sounds.

1) Please watch the video and have a go at recognising these letter sounds. I will go first-then it is your turn!!

Now have a go with your letters (these were sent home in an envelope before Christmas) at making and blending some words.

mat, hot, pin, top, fan, sun, parents please read these words out to your child and allow them to make the words with their letters)

2)Enjoy our new book.......listen along and look at the pictures!

3)Watch the Maths video and complete the activity.

4)Look at the New Years Resolution activity -work through this with your child if you don't have a printer you could complete this as a discussion. I would love to hear what their answers are. You could send me a video through Tapestry smiley

Some ideas to help your child with their maths at home.

Count everything!

One of the first number skills your child will learn is counting. Practising counting will help them will all sorts of number problems that they will encounter as they get older.

Try to get into the habit of counting when you are out and about. For example:

How many buses have we seen?

How many bugs are in the garden?

How many lamp posts are on the street?

How many squirrels have we seen?

Spot patterns

Look for repeating patterns on curtains, wallpaper, or clothing. Ask your child:

Can you see a pattern? Tell me about it. What will come next?

Start patterns with blocks, beads, playing cards, and toys. Encourage your child to build on the pattern to make it longer. You could also look for patterns in time together (for example, seasons, months, or daily routines) and talk about what you notice, or listen for patterns in songs and clap the rhythm.

 

Practise forming numerals

Help your child to learn the numerals by exploring their shapes. You could have fun forming numbers in sand with a stick, or making numbers out of modelling clay. Write numbers for your child to copy, and hold your hand over their hand to help direct them.

Try holding their finger and forming the number in the air. Once they can trace out the shape of numerals, see if they can write numbers on their own.

A great way for your child to spend 20 mins whilst on their tablet or computer. Learning to read and blend sounds with the Alphablocks.
