If you have 10 objects what happens if you take one away? (Keep doing this just like the 10 rubber ducks).

 

 

Phonics

 

This week we are continuing with alliteration …

 

Continue playing ‘I spy’ at home to help with beginning sounds in words.

 

Can you find objects in your house beginning with the same sound?

 

You could focus on:

Week beginning 20th April 2020

 

In Nursery our focus for this half term is based on Eric Carle stories this will lead onto 'On the farm'.

We know that you already enjoy listening to these stories in school.

We usually begin our learning by introducing the word ‘author’ we discuss that an author writes books.

Follow this link to see Eric Carle and the stories he has wrote.

Themed Learning

 

Eric Carle is the author of our very first story

‘The Very Busy Spider’

 

Follow the link to listen to the story.

After the story can you think about our ‘retrieve’ reading gem.

 

Can you retrieve information from the story?

Can you retell the story independently?

Who were the characters?

What animals were in the story?

 

Can you remember which order the animals visited the spider?

 

 

Maths

 

Follow the link to count the animals on the farm

 

http://www.sheppardsoftware.com/preschool/animals/farm/animalfarmgame.htm

 

Were some of these animals in ‘The Very Busy Spider’ story?

Can you find out how many legs a spider has?

How many of each animal did you see?

Which animals were there more of?

Which animals were there less of?

 

Practise counting in sequence as far as you can …

 

 

Phonics

 

In phonics we started to focus on alliteration – listening to the first sounds in words.

 

You could do this at home by playing ‘I spy’

 

Then you could start to group objects that begin with the same initial sound.

 

Here are the jollyphonics songs that we had started to learn to help us tune into initial sounds.
