Learning and caring together

Pre-nursery/Nursery Monday 8th February

Good morning everyone. We are beginning our last week of home learning before half term. I’m sure it’s going to be a good week and I’m looking forward to seeing and hearing about what you have all been up to.

We have two zoom sessions a day for children who want to attend. The sessions are at 11am and 1.30pm and I will read a story during each session.

  • Share stories with your children daily, they are hugely important in their learning.
  • Please sing or say rhymes with your child. If you do not know the tune, don’t worry. Your child might know it, or you can make up a tune or you could always say it rather than sing it. See Day 1 for the words to some of our popular rhymes.
  • Please find opportunities for counting daily. This might be when playing with toys, having tea, or walking up the stairs.

Pre-nursery

Collection of toys – Ask your child to find 5 toys that they like. It could be a group of general toys or cars, dinosaurs, dolls, teddies etc. Encourage your child to put the toys in a line and count how many they have, making sure they say one number as they point to each toy.

Tickle with the brush – find some soft brushes perhaps a new paint brush, make up brush, a clean nail brush, a clean toothbrush, a feather duster or a baby hair brush. Explore the brushes using words to describe the texture and feel of the brushes. Choose a brush and then a body part, such as fingers. Say/sing together ‘Tickle, tickle, tickle on the fingers, tickle, tickle, tickle on the fingers’. Encourage the children to tickle themselves on the fingers with the brush they have chosen. Ask your child how it feels. Now choose another body part from nose and toes to tickle and sing about.

Nursery

Phonics – Rhythm and Rhyme – Watch the video below and join in the song ‘what have we got in our box today?’ Talk about other things that could be in the collection of vehicles.

It could be a group of general toys or cars, dinosaurs, dolls, teddies etc. Encourage your child to put the toys in a line and count how many they have making sure they say one number as they point to each toy. Write the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 on separate pieces of paper and see if your child can label their toys with them.

Ask your child how it feels. Now choose another body part from nose and toes to tickle and sing about. See if you can make it more tricky by adding elbows, ankles, heels, wrists, chin etc.

Please can you keep in touch with me via email to let me know how your child is getting on. Alternatively you could send me a message below. It would be lovely if you could send a photo or two of your children in their play. My email address is: clister@handale.rac.sch.uk

Take care,
