Letters and Sounds - 1 a Day!

 

Watch the video of Mrs Jordan doing today’s letter and sound song.
The children should:
Sing the song or learn the rhyme together
Learn the action for each sound
Find objects or people that begin with the same sound
Write the sound in different ways - eg: with pens, with fingers in flour or similar, paint them in water, chalk them outside, create the shape using string or spaghetti.
Try to do one sound each day.

Religious education activities. Growing

 

Go on a spring time walk - Talk together about the things are starting to grow in the season of spring

 

Look together at baby photographs talk about how your child has grown. (Also other family members)

 

Make a spring time painting.

 

Plant some bulbs and look at how they grow over time. Go on line and look at speeded up films of a seed growing/ a chick hatching.

 

Make some heart shapes and talk about how we show love to one another.  Remember This was a message from Jesus 'I want you to love one another'. In Nursery we talked together about how we grow in love over the period of Lent.

 

Read the Easter story together. Remember the cross is special because it helps us to remember Jesus great love for everyone. Can you make a cross for Jesus.

 

In the shops you may see hot cross buns. If you can buy some look for the cross on the top .  Remember Jesus. Toast them and see if you can spread the butter on for yourself.

 

Create an Easter garden in a box or on a tray use craft materials and/or real garden objects, stones, flowers... Can you add a cross for Jesus to your garden?

RE Our World

RE GOOD NEWS

I am getting better at writing my letters
I can write my name

Some new ideas to try:

Moving and handling: Set up an obstacle course in your garden. Use different resources such as rope, string, hoops, balls, anything you can find indoors or out. Can you run through the obstacle course, being careful to avoid obstacles? You will need to change your speed and direction to complete it safely. Good luck!

 

Health and self-care and being imaginative: Make up a song about washing your hands. Make sure to wash them for 20 seconds.

 

Reading: Look at your food cupboards, catalogues, magazines etc. What company logos can you recognise? E.g. Disney, Asda, Tesco, Heinz, McDonalds, Peppa Pig etc. Perhaps you could cut them out and stick them on a piece of paper.

 

Shape, space and measure: Draw lots of 2d shapes on a large piece of paper. Colour in all of the shapes and have a go at naming them

and as a challenge describe their properties e.g. squares have 4 sides and 4 corners, all of the sides are the same size. A rectangle has 2 long sides and 2 short sides. It helps children to understand what sides and corners are if they can feel the sides and the corners so expose them to as many real, physical shapes as possible. To make this activity even more exciting you could tape the piece of paper underneath the table and make a SUPER SECRET shape den! Shhhh! Don’t tell anybody!

 

RE

To write a prayer, to help those that are sick, or to thank those who are helping.

If you upload these to homelearning@st-joseph-pri.notts.sch.uk Mrs Broad will be adding all your fabulous prayers to our school Facebook page.
