Home Learning Tasks

 

Good morning everyone! 

We just wanted to say Well Done to all who contacted us and added your fantastic comments, pictures and videos to your Tapestry folders. We have been blown away!  Please continue sending your work as is great to see it and especially with you in the pictures blush

Keep learning while having fun and enjoy the weather! Let's hope it continues.

 

Our TOPIC this week is Growing, leading to Spring and Easter.

 

Friday 3rd April 2020

Good morning everyone!
I can't find better words than AMAZING FANTASTIC WONDERFUL to express how I am/We are impressed with all the things you have been doing at home with your grown ups. Some of you followed my ideas and some of you used their own imagination to play, have fun and to learn. Remember, we learn through play and we learn everywhere and all the time.

 

As it is Friday today, try to have a fun day. Sing our Friday song and show me those moves. Don't forget, 9 am PE with Joe! It is Fancy dress day smiley

 

Literacy:

There is a good website (free). There are only two folders open: books and music but looks good. The stories are read to the children. Some children can join in with reading- pink level. It was hard for me to pick a book for today because children have different interests so let them choose. https://connect.collins.co.uk/school/Primary/PrimaryDashboard.aspx  

        user name: parents@harpercollins.co.uk

        password: Parents20!

 

   Don't forget that website is good too https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/ - Free ebooks

 

Maths:

Watch a Numberblocks clip at: BBC​ or ​CBeebies​. https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/joinin/numberblocks-help-your-child-with-maths  keep asking lots of questions: How do you know? Why? How can we find out? What will happen if..? Why do think that? Make connections... if we know this... what do you think.... Make them think and use their knowledge, all through the play, hands on activities.

 

Phonics:
Play I-spy with things you can see out of the window. You could alternate between the initial sound in the word e.g. “I spy with my little eye something beginning with t” ​ . Or with oral blending e.g. ​“I spy with my little eye a t-r-ee, c-ar, c-a-t, d-o-g”. Play a listening game. Gather a selection of objects that make sounds from around the house. Cover your child’s eyes with a blindfold and make sounds with the objects collected. Can they figure out what the object is without looking at it? Swap to make it fair.


Art: Make a rainbow

We did that with the children at school yesterday. Have a go wink  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iZCNnYewmk

Also, see the attachments on Tapestry for fun with water outside and the scissors skills. These are just the ideas.

 

Have fun x Stay safe x Keep posting x

Thursday 2nd April 2020

Good morning everyone 😊 Thank you everyone who keeps in touch with us and sends us your amazing work 👏👏👍 To start our day with a bit of fun you can join Joe at 9 am or (if you are late) follow the link https://safeyoutube.net/w/NCf3 

 

Phonics: Sing Nursery Rhymes and songs together. Add in actions and change the words. Can children think of different rhyming words to add in? Repeat old favourites and learn new rhymes. You can find an A-Z of ​Nursery Rhymes here​. https://allnurseryrhymes.com/ 

 

Maths:
Go on a shape hunt: Set your child a shape finding challenge around the house. Ask: Can you find a triangle/ square/ rectangle/ circle in this room? How many can you find? Can you draw all of the circles on one piece of paper, triangles on another etc.

 

Have a look at the website below. There are games, stories and activities for your children to use:

 

Tuesday 31st March - Wednesday 1st April 2020

Good morning everyone,
I/We love seeing all the work you uploaded on Tapestry. It looks like everyone is keeping very busy and the most important thing, you are having fun! Well done ;-)
We continue with Spring/Growing and I am very impressed with all the crafts and the art work I have seen so far.


Spring craft:
My daughter and I were talking about all the fun things we used to do when she was little. She suggested something  that I hope everyone will try to do. Today I would like you to collect few things on your walk (if you go to the park) or find something in the garden that you can use to make a picture. Collect flowers, leaves, bit of grass. 
Put that between the pages in the book (we had the flower press kit but the book will be good too). Once is flat, place it on the paper  to make a picture.

 

Daily Phonics
Practice the sounds your child is working on and blend words. This can be oral blending (e.g. spoken out loud c-a-t) or written if appropriate. We use Robot arms, children will show you how 😉
Play phonics noughts and crosses. Draw out a grid and write a letter or HFW (HIgh Frequency Word: it, is, on, at, in) in each part of the grid. Take it in turns to name what is written in the grid. If you say it correctly you can add your nought or cross in that square. 
Practice forming the letters of the alphabet and in your name. Remember to use 'froggy fingers'.  Can they write this using chalks, crayons, paint, felt tips? 
 
UW (understanding of the World)- looking at changes.
Look at a selection of family photographs​ and discuss the changes over time. Show your child a photograph of them as a baby, a 1 year old, a 2 year old. What could they do at that age? What can they do now that they couldn’t do then? Look at a picture of a family member as a baby (this could be parents, siblings). Discuss how everyone was a baby once. Are there any black and white photographs? Why are these photographs black and white? Do they show older family members when they were younger? Talk about how life was different then. Can you see any similarities between yourselves and parents?


Maths: 
Play a family board game together. Talk about taking it in turns and playing fairly. Dice games will support your child’s number recognition. You could use a spinner with numerals on to help develop numeral recognition. If you don’t have a spinner you could make one using an old cereal box and a split pin. Have fun 😊😊😊🙃🙃

 

Find out everyone’s favourite song in your family. Children will know my favourite. Asked them 🙃🙃🙃😄 and let me know x
Listen to each person’s favourite song and make up a dance to match. Do you like the same music? What is your favourite song? 
Remember that these are the ideas and options. 
Have fun and stay safe 🌈

 

 

   

Monday 30th March 2020

Literacy

Have a look at the website and share a story about Spring https://watch.vooks.com/videos/and-then-its-spring

Don't forget to talk about the seasons and how they are changing. Can the children notice something outside? The days are longer, the air is warmer, green colour around, flowers etc. Encourage the children to answer in a sentence. 

 

Maths

Throughout the week there will be a range of different activities that we will be adding on Tapestry for you to have a go (if you can). These are just the ideas to get you started. Last week, when looking at all the photos and the comments, I noticed that the children used their imagination in their play and invented all activities wink Let them lead the way they want to do things. Look at sizes, length and width of different objects. They are so important at this stage. It is more than just saying something is big or something is short.  Please use objects around the house/garden to make this become more familiar and concrete. Something is bigger/smaller than.... How do you know that? How can we find out? Check. Something is bigger than yesterday/last week because.....

Please share your learning on Tapestry (in your child's file). 

 

Phonics

The websites mentioned last week are brilliant- espresso education, phonicsplay. These are just the ideas of the activities they can explore.

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/member-only/CakeBake.html

Children can also walk around the house/garden and look for things that rhyme. 


Please also continue to use the ebooks on VOOKS to read with your child. The website is free for parents to use for a month.  

 

Purple Mash

Remember that Mini-Mash programme has wonderful games and tools to use. There is a programme called '2 Paint a picture'. What about having a go and drawing/painting something that you can see growing outside (through the window or in your garden). Don't forget to save all your work in your tray for us to see it.  

 

UW (Understanding of the World)

Can we plant something and watch to grow? It is a great opportunity to see the changes and talk about what is needed for things to grow.

 

Remember that for any learning related enquires you can contact us using our class email- Amber@galleyhill.herts.sch.uk 

Have fun and stay safe!

Tuesday 31st March 2020

Good morning everyone on a sunny but cold Tuesday morning smiley

I loved seeing all the work everyone uploaded on Tapestry yesterday and how all was different. Well done.

Literacy

I know that VOOKS might not work for everyone so please see below the link to another website with few options to explore  

     www.hungrylittlemindscampaign.gov.uk

Maths:

Start with singing Number songs to practice counting, reciting numbers in order, one more, one less using number songs: Five Little Ducks, Five Little Men, Ten Green Bottles

 https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08cr24d/numberblocks-series-1-how-to-count 

Go on a numeral hunt: Search for numerals around the house (clocks, books, house numbers, car registrations, oven, washing machine). Can they record the numerals on paper? 

Remember, the numbers are everywhere and we can count anything and everything blush

Phonics

Send your child on a sound hunt around the house. Can they find and record all of the items that make sounds? (e.g. hairdryer, TV, fridge, microwave, phone)

Creative

Explore the textures around your house. Can children find something rough, smooth, bumpy.They could take a wax rubbing of each texture (lay a piece of paper over the top and rub over with the side of a crayon). You could continue this into the garden. 

For more ideas see the attached document.

Have fun and stay safe smiley smiley

 

 

Home Learning 

Week Beginning: 23rd March 2020

At the end of last week we sent your children home with their little yellow books.. Each child has their individual next steps in them, please make sure you focus on them at least a few times a week.  

We also have listed a selection of activities for the children to complete this week.

Purple Mash- each child has been given their own login. When you log your child in, they will see Mini Mash programme which has different games to help with mouse control skills, language, numbers, etc. Each child has their own tray to save their own work to that I should be able to see. From that I can set up 2do's (next steps).     . 

 

In Phonics we are revisiting Phase 1 and 2 phonics.

1. Listen to environmental sounds around: water in the tap, car, radio, door bell... 

2. Look for different things around and make the rhyming strings: pen, hen, ten      pig, wig, dig 

3. Go on pretend walks with the children (they will know what to do because we played that every day). 'Where shall we go today? We can go the the park. We stop and we look. I can see a......slide and the slide rhymes with hide.'  Repeat with going to different places and seeing different things.

4. Play 'I spy'...something that begins with..... game. 

Don't do rhymes and initial sounds on the same day as it confuses them :-) 

In Maths we will be focusing on number recognition up to 10. Look for them around: doors, cars, money, telephone, etc. Count different things by touching one object at the time: bricks, cars, steps. Children know that we can count anything and everything. 

Look for different 2D shapes around us, they are everywhere. Can you spot any?

In Topic in the last few weeks we have been looking at traditional tales: Goldilocks and the Three bears, Three little pigs, Little Red Riding Hood. See if the children can tell you their own version of the story and make up a different ending, add different characters. Make it fun as it is all about their language skills.

This week Topic is all about Pirates. Make a hat, an eye patch, a treasure map, telescope.

Don’t forget that from Monday at 9am Joe Wicks is launching live daily PE lessons. We can’t do our warm up Wake up song but I will be joining Joe. 

 

Please upload all learning to your child's tapestry account.

Friday 27th March 2020

Good morning everyone,
Another day of having fun at home 🤔😃 
You can start the day with our morning activities: abc, months, days, numbers, warm up. Children know what to do 💪🏼👍
We trained them well in the last few months (just make them my teacher’s ID and use something long for the pointer 😃)
Today is Friday so remember that on Friday is a FUN DAY 💃🕺🏼

Below you have different activities and links that you could do but........ 
YOU HAVE A CHOICE 😄🙃😉

CHOICE NUMBER ONE
I would like you to enjoy the weather and have fun, play outside (in the garden if you can), make mud pies (Pirates food 🤪), listen to birds and noises outside, look at the clouds (through binoculars) and see if you can find shapes, pictures of things in the sky (take the picture of it and show me if you can). 

CHOICE NUMBER TWO 
1. For maths ideas, have a look at 
https://www.themathsfactor.com/
I would like you to try https://www.themathsfactor.com/games/try/?gameid=46&prefix=ZONE&config=IPG_CM_Y1_CA_001,%20support&title=Count%20the%20Yeti%201%20to%2010&return=/try/

2. Stories
https://www.vooks.com/
Story books that will be free for a month for parents, please sign up for it as there are nice books that children can listen to/watch.

3. Phonics: recap the sounds (we covered all), letter sounds not names.

I am sure I already gave you the link but if not, please look at another good website that is free for a while (not sure how long for)
https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/
      Username: march20
       Password: home
This website is great and full of resources to use to cover phonics, reading, computing, etc. If you are going to explore the website independently with your children, we are only focussing on Phase 1 and 2. 

Have a go and see if you can complete the game below
https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/1/super-smoothie

As our Topic is still Pirates, I would like the children to do Buried treasure activity https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/2/buried-treasure
I am not expecting them to read but they can say the sounds they know and place the words in the bin or the treasure chest.

4 Can we make a treasure map? 

Or you can mix both 👍👍

Have fun fun fun and please keep posting your lovely work, pictures and videos of you and your family having fun 😉😉😉

Do the same with days of the week; today is Thursday and I would like you to use your singing voice for Thursday only. What about Numbers, they are everywhere so let's count together from 0 to 10 and from 10 to 0. Can you count our way? You can make your own pattern: head, shoulder, clap. Have fun!   

Today would be our computing lesson. As this week topic is all about Pirates, I managed to set up for you Pirates activity on Purple Mash. if you can't see it in your trays, search Pirates and find different activities related to this topic. I will add different links on Tapestry as well (see Tapestry news).

Nursery Staff

Ms S. Handel, Mrs H. Payne & Mrs H. Trueman

The Foundation Unit is staffed by Teachers, Early Years Practitioners and Teaching Assistants. All of our staff are happy to help parents at any time.

 

What is the Foundation Stage Unit?
The Foundation Stage Unit is a learning environment for children who are in the Foundation Stage phase of their education which is between the ages of 4 and 5 years.
The Foundation Stage is a distinct stage which is important in its own right and we believe it is crucial in preparing children for later schooling.
The Foundation Stage Unit includes children from their forth birthday until the end of their Reception Year. We recognise it as a crucial in education, both in its own right and in preparing children for learning in Key Stage one. We believe that all children should be given the best possible start to their education. Great value is placed on the quality of our provision in the Foundation Stage by providing all of the children with stimulating activities that are appropriate for their age and stage of development. It is recognised that when children join us, they will already have had a range of experiences and they will also have a range of skills and interests; therefore the curriculum is carefully planned so that their learning is always moving forward.
