This weeks letters and sounds This weeks maths  This weeks topic

Voice sounds (in conjunction with

Trumpets) Show children how they can make sounds with their voices,

for example:

 Make your voice go down a slide

– wheee!

 Make your voice bounce like a ball

– boing, boing

 Sound really disappointed

– oh

 Hiss like a snake

– ssssss

 Keep everyone quiet – shshshsh

 Gently moo like a cow – mmmoooo

 Look astonished – oooooo!

 Be a steam train – chchchchch  Buzz like a bumble bee – zzzzzzz

 Be a clock – tick tock

 

Collect objects and toys that link to different songs, e.g. a toy spider might represent Incy Wincy Spider. Can you make a song bag and sing together?

Patterns!

Explore patterns in lots of different

ways. Make patterns using body

percussion e.g. clap/stamp,

sounds e.g. instruments, objects or toys, drawing and painting. Can you find any patterns if you go for a walk e.g.the colours of the cars.

 

Have a go at representing numbers in different ways. How many different

ways can you represent each number

e.g.for number 1 as a numeral, as a word, as an object, as a drawing, as a line, as a dot, as an action...

 

Can you use marks to represent numbers on a walk e.g. record the number of bugs you find.

Read Jack and the Beanstalk

 

Make cotton wool clouds and draw what you would like to see at the top of the beanstalk.

 

Thread cheerios onto dry spaghetti- can you develop your fine motor skills.

 

Cut and stick your favourite pictures from a catalogue or magazine.

 

Paint a picture of the story setting.

 

Try hand painting and see what happens when the colours mix.

 

Set up a farm using your toys and pretend to be the giant.

 

Please remember all activities are optional and children learn best when they are engaged in meaningful play and conversation. However should you wish for some support structuring tasks here are this weeks reward checklists.
