Home Learning 22.04.20

Wednesday 22nd April 2020

Hello Crocodiles,

Parents/Carers- please take a look at our class page for updated information on our phonics and early reading programme. I have added many links to slides/ worksheets/ booklets to support early Phonics at home in response to many requests from parents. This is in addition to the daily learning tasks and is to be completed only if and when you see fit.

Here are today’s home learning tasks:

Phonics & Literacy- Please can you run through each letter of the alphabet with your child on the link below- encourage them to say the sound for each letter. (You will need to download the document and then close your internet browser. It needs to be opened using PDF or Adobe Acrobat Reader. Once you press the sound button there should be a link that comes up saying some features have been disabled for safety. You have to press trust this document for the sounds to work.)

A is for Apple.

B is for ball.

C is for cat.

Can you practice writing all three of these letters?

If I was going to go on a treasure hunt in my house looking for something beginning with the initial sound a- I might find an apple.

Can you go on a treasure hunt and find me 2 things in your house beginning with the initial sound b?

Finally can you go on a treasure hunt and find me 3 things in your house beginning with a c?

(Help for parents & carers- bat, ball, bin, bread, bun, cup, coat, carrot, can, cap, cat, cake, candle, clip)

Communication and Language & Understanding the World

Can you talk to your child about emergency vehicles- ambulances, helicopters, police cars/vans/motorbikes, fire engine, life boats.

Does your child know what these types of transport are for? Where do they travel?

(It does not have to be a conversation regarding the current climate as this can be quite distressing for our nursery aged pupils. It is instead important that our children understand the key roles the vehicles and services have in general.)

Thank you

Miss Crossley
