What a lovely week we have had! The weather some days has been beautiful and although we play outside in all weathers it has been lovely to not have to wrap up against the elements.

Over the last few weeks we have been learning about the number 1. After the Easter holidays we will move on to number 2. Over the holidays if you are out and about and in your homes as well, encourage your child to go on a number 2 hunt. You could take photos and upload them on to EExAT so we can talk about them with your child when we return.

We have been doing lots of Phase 1 phonics in Nursery and on the lockdown blogs. Here are some links to previous activities to reinforce the strands.

A few things we have done this week…

During phonics and maths this week we are consolidating our learning. Please see attachments and information below for children that are at home this week.

Phonics

This week we are recapping the short ‘oo’ and introducing the long ‘oo.’ The sheets are attached as well as videos for you to have a go at home with. You might want to use your communication book to record your learning at home in.

Maths

In maths this week we are consolidating our number bonds to 10. How many ways can you make 10? Can you use your part whole models and objects, such as pasta to find different ways? We are also representing numbers 10, 11, 12, 13. You can have a go at home using the sheet attached or you might use your communication book.

Learning in your Communication book

Over the Easter holidays we could like children to spend some time practising reading and writing tricky words. Attached is a list of tricky words. How many words can your child read? Can they spell he tricky word or put them in a sentence?

Please remember that you can access all of the previous blog posts. You could use these to revise previous learning.

This we have continue to revisit the phoneme/graphemes we started to learn during lockdown. The children practised reading and writing: ch, sh and qu. We also looked at the tricky words be and we.

Maths

During our maths session we have been given reasons for our answers when counting and talking about different ways of making numbers up to 10. We have started to solve missing number problems by using a number track to help us.

Farm visit

Making buns

Everything else

Next week in phonics will be be revisiting the long and short ‘oo’ phoneme. We will be completing various reading and writing activities. In maths we will be finding different ways of making 10 and exploring numbers beyond 10 by making and representing numbers in different ways. Please keep practising forming your numbers correctly.

The children have all returned to Nursery this week and we have had a lovely time. They have all definitely missed their friends and have enjoyed renewing those friendships and making new ones. They have quickly remembered the routines and behaviour expectations we have.

Maths

Lots of home learning is evident and we started this week by revisiting the number 1. We have been demonstrating the number by clapping 1 time, hopping 1 time and touching 1 nose. We then introduced a ‘5 frame’ to the children. They placed 1 piece of pasta on the frame where ever they wanted. Then they moved them to another position to see if there was still 1 piece of pasta. Then the children counted the spaces and realised each time they moved the pasta there were still 4 spaces. This is working towards number bonds. Then we moved on to representing the number on paper. They drew 1 circle, 1 flower and 1 object of their choosing before writing the number itself. have a look at their work…

There was also some lovely work on length going on. Did you spot it?

Literacy

The children have been doing lots of independent ‘reading’ and listening to stories to develop their vocabulary. They have enjoyed writing for lots of different purposes and especially liked mark making on the long rolls of wallpaper (we would be glad of any donations!).

Other things this week…

Have a look at a few of the other things we have been doing this week. Some children enjoyed helping out with the Spring planting. they are learning how to look after the plants as well as the environment being brightened up. We hope you like all the brightly coloured bedding plants.

Have a lovely weekend, from the Nursery team.
