Book recommendations:

 

We would have used the following topic books (as well as others):

 

The Teeny Weeny Tadpole.

Growing Frogs

Oi Frog!

Frog on a Log.

Wendy the wide mouthed frog.

 

The Tiny Seed.

Jasper's Beanstalk

Sam Plant's a sunflower.

Oliver's Vegetables

 

The Hungry Caterpillar.

Funnybones.

 

Farmer Duck

What the Lady bird heard (complete series).

 

This term we would have been learning about our bodies, seasonal changes and the farm.

As well as the tasks in your child's home learning pack, links to activities which will support your child's learning will be added to this page at regular intervals throughout the school closure. 

 

A few extra activities you can do with your child which will help them become school ready (for September 2020 starters):

  • play games, role play and complete jigsaws together
  • singing songs, nursery and finger rhymes and making time for talk
  • look for bugs and signs of spring in the garden
  • continue to read with and to your child, everyday if you can
  • support your child’s self-help skills so that they learn to do things for themselves such as; encouraging your child to wash their hands, go to the toilet and have a go at learning how to do their zip up on their coat 
  • recognising and talking through your child’s feelings and different emotions
  • make junk models with recyclable materials
  • practise recognising and writing their name
  • teach your child how to use a knife and fork or open packets and bags ready for school lunches

 

Here are some websites that you might find useful:

 

The first step in phonics is to be able to listen carefully and distinguish different sounds.  There are some games on the Letters and Sounds website that you could play with your child to help them become confident at listening carefully to sounds.
