Half term challenge!
This half term will be starting our new topic ‘who’s in the woods?’. To get ready for our learning journey we are setting you the challenge of exploring ‘the woods’ this half term. Have you been to woods before? What did it look like? What did you see ? Can you go on a visit to the woods with your family? We wonder what you will find! Can you collect things from the woods? Can you draw pictures of what you find? Do you know any stories that are set in the woods? Can you share a woodland story with a grown up?
We would love you to be creative with this half term’s challenge! You could create a collage of all the things that you find. You could use them to create a woodland picture. You could write a list of what you found, or write sentences to describe what it was like. Please post pictures of tapestry of the woodland adventures that you have! We can’t wait to see what you discover! Have lots of fun, get muddy and have fantastic adventures!
Please find your home time challenge set on your purple mash log in. You can find your login and password inside your reading record book. This week we have been learning how to find one more of numbers to 10. We have explored doing this practically with loose parts and using a number line. Can you now solve these one more number problems? You could use objects in your house to help you add one more if you need some help!
Your challenge this week is to go on a senses walk. You could do this in your home, in your garden, at the park, your local area etc! We would love you to explore all of your senses ! What can you see? What can you hear? What can you feel? What can you smell? Is there anything you can taste? Can you draw a picture of the things you have found? Can you write some labels? We would love to see photos on tapestry! Remember we will be giving dragon points for everyone who completes their home time challenge ! Have lots of fun!
This week we will be exploring our feelings! This week your challenge is to do something that makes you feel happy. It might be playing with a favourite toy, baking a cake, spending time with your family or going on your bike. Can you talk to a family member about why it makes you feel happy? Can you post a photo on tapestry? We can’t wait to see what fun you get up to!
We are so proud to have learnt the sounds SATPIN over the past two weeks! The children have loved learning the new sounds. Your challenge this weekend is to practise recognising these sounds. Can you hide the sounds around your home to find? Can you sort objects into words that begin with each sound? Can you teach your grown-up the jolly phonics songs? Can you practise blending the sounds together to read some words (e.g sat, pin, tap, tin, nap). Please share photos of your learning on tapestry! We can't wait to see them!
This week we have learnt the sounds ‘s’ ‘a’ and ‘t’. Your challenge this weekend is to have a hunt around your home, garden , local area for any objects that start with these sounds. Can you say the word to check which sound it starts with? Can you sort objects into piles of s, a and t? Can you teach your grown up the jolly phonics songs we have learnt for these sounds? Please post photos and videos on tapestry of your phonics hunt! We can’t wait to see what you can find!
