Good morning Acorn Class!
We hope you all had a lovely weekend. Mrs Grimes, Mrs McCarthy and Mrs Earley are looking forward to welcoming more of you back to Nursery this week. We will be continuing to offer ideas for home learning too, so please do share what you have been doing at home. We have loved seeing your photos, videos and creative ideas.
Just a reminder that we will be online between 9am and 12pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. If you are unsure of anything, or would like any suppport, then please email us. If you have an urgent query on a Thursday or Friday, please mark the subject box urgent and someone will get back to you. If not, we will reply to your emails the following week. We are here to help you as best as we can.
Our theme for this week’s learning is ‘Moles and Rabbits.’
We will also be taking part in a virtual sports day – ‘The Rainbow Games’ as part of our daily physical activities. In the Physical Development attachment section on the website you will find a file called ‘The Rainbow Games’ games. There are six physical activities that we would like you to complete at home – Twister, Jump my height, Mighty memory, Flying high, Pot of gold and Run the rainbow. If your child is in Nursery this week they will be doing ‘Star challenge’ at school. If your child is not in Nursery we would like them to complete this one at home too. The activities are all explained in the attachment. There is also a score sheet to fill in. Please keep a note of your child’s scores and send them, with your child’s house colour (PE t-shirt colour), to the Acorn email address by Monday 29th June at the latest and we will collate the points. Please also take time to look at the values – determination, honesty and accountability and talk these through with your child. Good luck!
Today’s suggested tasks are as follows:
Phonics: Play ‘I spy’ either at home or while you are on a walk. I spy something beginning with…Children to say an object they can see which begins with that sound. Can you think of anything else which starts with that sound?
Physical Development: One activity from the Rainbow Games.
Mathematical Development: Show me 5. Grown-up to hold up 5 fingers or show the numeral 5. Children to show that number using different objects. Can they make different patterns of 5? What different patterns can they make with 5 objects? Children to have a go at recording the patterns they have made using pictures and drawings?
Story: Listen to the story ‘Guess how much I love you’. If you don't have a copy you can find it here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tRVBWuYQQs
When Big and Little Nutbrown Hare show off how much they love each other, don't you wish you could watch them stretch out their arms, hop as high as they can, and tumble upside down with their feet in the air? Well, now you can! Beautifully designed flaps, tabs, and pop-ups respect the integrity of the original story and illustrations while ...
How does the story make you feel? Do you have a favourite part?
Understanding of the World/Communication and language: Think of some questions you would like to find out about animals that live underground. Remember questions start with who, how, why, where, what? Let me know what your questions are. Tomorrow we will see if we can find out the answers.
Have a fun day with whatever activities you decide to do.
Mrs Keith and Mrs Grimes
