Happy Friday everyone

Zosia, Ursula, Paul, Olive and Kattaleya we will do your show and tell before I do the story at 11.30am. Sorry it run out of time.

 

 

Lesson one: Talk Time 

WALT:  talk about our achievements and holiday news

In the Early Years, it is so vital to develop shared vocabulary and shared speaking and one way this can be done is through show and tell. So I want to embed a weekly talk time into our home learning, where we can share work we are proud of and/or talk about what we did over the holidays. Yes Christmas would have been different, but I still want to hear your news. 

Have one piece of work ready to show us or something you want to share with us about your holiday. Louise will be all ears and your class friends will be listening too.

Lesson Two: Listen to a story with Louise 

Join Louise via zoom @ 11.30am to listen to the traditional tale of 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. Louise will read the story with puppets. At the end, we will chat about the likes, dislikes and feelings in the story.

Activity three: Play Obb and Bob Phonic game

Great news! www.phonicplay.co.uk are offering parents free access to what is otherwise a paid site. There are tons of great phonics and tricky word games on this site. Attached is the photo of the log in details and  I have attached the image of the Obb and Bob game to play with the children, but all three are great games. Both Buried Treasure and Obb and Bob focus on helping the children identify fake words from real words. Dragon's Den is great for blending. 

Activity four: Choose a fun challenge from this list and make sure you have fun!!

Please keep the list handy and use it as and when you want!

Activity three: continue to expand or finish an art or messy project from this week

This week I have set different messy/ play dough activities and art activities and this can take some time. In class we would encourage children to return to all activity. It is best to return to such projects to encourage processing skills such as observing, reviewing, evaluating, in a bid to latter develop and improve it. Great life skills. Please continue with a Three Little Pigs activity or messy activity and feel free to email me the photos.

Story time: Continue to explore poetry - Listen to Michael Rosen's 'Eddie and The Birthday'

Another superb poem from Michael Rosen's  book' Quick Let's Get Out of Here'. I often read these poems to the class. My earliest memory of being in infant school myself was of my teacher reading this book, I  thought I'd share another great poem today to lift spirits and create giggles.
