Learning and caring together

Pre-nursery/Nursery Thursday 11th February

Good morning everyone. It’s nearly the half-term holidays – it’s hard to believe that we have done almost 6 weeks of online learning. Following the success of last Friday, tomorrow will be a technology free day.

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

Pancakes – Next Tuesday is Pancake Day. Watch the video below of ‘Peppa Pig – Pancakes’ to start to think about the pancakes you might have on Tuesday. You can start planning what you will need for Tuesday or you might even want to make one or two pancakes early!

Watch the video below of the pancake song and see if your child can join in with the words and actions.

Melting – If we still have some snow outside fill a container and bring it inside to watch the snow melt. Also get a container and fill with water perhaps put something in the water such as a little toy and put it into the freezer. Talk to your child about the water and what it is like before it went into the freezer. Then talk about the differences once it comes out of the freezer. Leave the frozen container to melt and talk about what is happening now. Perhaps if you have some chocolate and cereal you could melt the chocolate and make some crispy cakes. You could talk about the changes that happen to the chocolate during this process.

Nursery

Phonics – Voice sounds – Choose a story your child is familiar with. Discuss with your child how they can use their voices to add sounds to the story. Talk about whether they will be loud or quiet sounds. Read the story pausing for your child to add the sounds they have chosen.

Pancakes – Next Tuesday is Pancake Day. Watch the video below of Mr Wolf’s Pancakes to start to think about the pancakes you might have on Tuesday. You can start planning what you will need for Tuesday or you might even want to make one or two pancakes early! See if your child is able to retell the story.

This week is safer internet week. Watch the story of Smartie the Penguin, I bet you will all enjoy it. If you want to do any of the challenges at the end of the video please email them to me.

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,

Mrs Lister
