Year R Home Learning
In the coming weeks the Year R team will be posting home learning ideas for your children. Our biggest hope would be that you continue to regularly read, listen to and enjoy books with your children and we would love to see videos of this on Tapestry. There are lots of activities and ideas online but we will be providing a range of ideas which we believe will help your child to learn. We know that children of this age learn best through short chunks of focused time so we recommend limiting intense learning time in the day and allowing children periods of play to process their learning. Remember spending time helping with everyday tasks and the discussions that come from this are also learning, e.g pairing the socks when hanging out the washing, digging out weeds, loading the dishwasher and cooking.
We don't want the children to feel disconnected from the adults in the class and will use Tapestry to send messages. We would love to see what you are all up to.
The Early Years Team
Weeks 3 and 4 (6th April - 17th April)
We hope you enjoy completing some of these activities during the Easter Holidays and we would love to see photographs and video clips of them.
Thank you for sharing your child's learning via Tapestry and the Year R email address. We have really enjoyed discovering what they have been doing over the past two weeks.
From the Year R Team
Can you write someone in your house a surprise message? Listen carefully to the sounds you can hear and remember a finger space between each word.
Can you make your own sandwich. Think about what you will need and what to do first and next. Choose some yummy filings and when you have finished explain to somebody else exactly what you did. Have fun!
Can you sort some objects by their materials? How did you know they belonged to that group? What words can you use to describe the object, e.g. smooth, rough, flexible, transparent? What is the same about the objects? What is different? Why is each object made from that material?
These websites contain activities that can be completed without the use of a printer. We hope these will be helpful.
