Is that a roar we can hear??? We hope not!!! We have chosen to look at dinosaurs this week. We thought it would be nice for the children to research different dinosaurs. We have found some stories and songs for you to enjoy too. As always there are lots of different activities for you to choose and complete throughout the week. Good luck.

Activities

Could you become a dinosaur? Why not make some dinosaur footprints and stomp around!

How about making some dinosaur eggs?

Why not have a go at drawing a dinosaur….

If you like to get messy….. Have a go at paining your own dinosaur.

This week we would like you to think about one more and one less. We sent home some dinosaur eggs and a worksheet to help with this. Don’t worry if you cannot find them. We have attached copies below.

Have a look at the following videos to help you along the way.

The are lots of activities for you to enjoy on imoves. This week we would like you to enjoy the dinosaur section. Have fun!

Nursery Phonics

This week for our Environmental Sounds activity can you go on a listening walk? You could do a walk outside and then see which different sounds you can hear in your house.

Which sounds can you hear around your house?

Here is a piece of music to listen to. Which instrument can you hear? How does the music make you feel?

Can you close your eyes while you listen?

What creature does this music make you think of? Can you pretend to be a dinosaur?

As well as listening to this piece of music can you use parts of your body to make sounds to go with it?
A rhyming story

This week’s alliteration activity is ‘I spy’. Can you play this game with your family? Your grown up could begin with words which start with the same sound as your name begins with. Have fun!

For the ‘Voice sounds’ activity this week can you make sounds with your voice to go with our story ‘Peace at Last’? Your grown up could record you and put it on Tapestry for your teachers to listen to.

Reception Phonics

We have seen some fantastic work from you so far. This week we are looking at more blends and sentence writing. We have added some videos to help start your phonics sessions and included further links to the home planning sheet for support with each session. Good luck everyone.

We hope that our weekly blogs are working for you as well as the daily blogs. Some families decided to complete a daily task selecting one or two activities from the selection whereas others decided to complete the majority of the week’s home learning during a themed day. We are happy for you to complete the tasks however works best for you and your family but we would recommend that you try to complete the phonics tasks daily.

Today is World Ocean Day. We thought it would be nice to think about our oceans and enjoys some stories with oceans in them. This week the main task is to research oceans. Have a look at the website below. There are lots of interesting facts to learn and activities to enjoy!

What do you already do at home to try and reduce the amount of plastic you are using? What more could you do?

Could you create a poster or video encouraging others to rethink how they use and waste plastics?

Water Play

This week’s theme is the perfect time for some water/messy play. Do you have any ocean animals that you could play with in the bath or a water tray? Take a look at some more ocean themed activities that you could do at home.

Imoves

https://imoves.com Are offering free trial accounts with lots of interactive PE resources. Once you have made an account you can access a huge variety of resources. This week we would particularly like you to look at the ‘Under the Sea’ section.

The Snail and the Whale

Please don’t feel like you have to stick to the Ocean theme all week. If your child shows a particular interest then go with it! For example, they might be particularly interested in the snail from this story.

Could you write a message like the snail does in this story? You could use black paper and chalk or glue with some glitter?

Can you find any snails in your garden or a local park? If you can maybe you could hold your own snail race? (Just make sure you are careful not to hurt any snails and wash your hands afterwards!)

5 Oceans Song

Could you watch this song and write down the names of the 5 Oceans? Maybe you could take a look at a map and label the oceans?

When we visit the seaside in the UK which Ocean do we see? Have you visited any other countries and seen any different Oceans? We’d love to see some photographs!

Ocean Animals

Which is a your favourite ocean animal? Could you draw and label a picture? Maybe you could write a sentence explaining why you like that particular animal.

How many legs does each animal have? Could you write each animals name along with how many legs it has? Which animal has the most? Which has fewest?

More Stories and Songs

Additional Resources to Print at Home

We understand that many people do not have access to a printer so we have tried to avoid activities that rely on access to a printer. Some families have been asking for additional, printable resources so may like to take a look at Twinkl. The video below explains how to go about accessing their resources.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMNHN8JzwGQ

Once you have your account details you should be able to search for and download resources. Try searching for ‘EYFS Under the Sea‘. If you have any problems with this please email your child’s Class Teacher.

Nursery Phonics

Over the next few weeks the blog will include some phonic activities specifically for Nursery children. These activities cover Phase 1 of ‘Letters and Sounds’. There are seven aspects of Phase 1 –

General sound discrimination – environmental sounds

General sounds – instrumental sounds

General sounds – body percussion

Rhythm and rhyme

Alliteration

Oral blending and segmenting

Reception Phonics

This week we have tried to include a more structured approach to phonics. We will be looking at initial consonant clusters. These are two letters at the beginning of a word that we ‘squash’ together. We have attached a planning sheet and separate word sheets for each day. Most of you will have these already from the packs we sent home. We have included videos below to start your sessions and links within the planning to support your daily activities. Good luck and please contact us with any queries.
