Home Learning 8th-12th February
- (LLC/PSD) Enjoy listening to the story of The Little Red Hen. Talk about the actions of the characters and how the little red hen felt at different points in the story. Discuss with your child about how helping friends/others is a kind thing to do. A lovely retelling of the tale can be found by clicking this link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBq-dvJNS4Q
- (LLC) Reinforce/Learn the letter sounds in this episode of Alphablocks that is built around the story of The Little Red Hen. Encourage your child to join in with the segmenting and blending of sounds to read the words. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01n8jk3/alphablocks-series-3-5-little-red-n
- (MD/PSD) Follow a simple recipe and help each other to weigh/measure and knead dough to make bread rolls just like the Little Red Hen did in the story. Encourage your child to follow the recipe cards to allow them to feel involved.
- (MD/CD) Watch and sing along with this counting song about a Red Hen. https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/nursery-rhymes-hickety-pickety-my-red-hen/zvymd6f
- (CD) Use a paper plate to make a simple model of The Little Red Hen. You don't have to follow this 'make it' video and can explore other ways of making a model with your child if you so wish. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sClCq4uS3p0
- (WLD) Use this Welsh Second Language story 'Tedi Twt Ar Y Fferm' to learn some farm animal names in Welsh.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jLy1PBKdkc
- (LLC) Play either of these listening games and try to guess which farm animal is making the noise. The first link is a simpler game. https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/puzzles/down-on-the-farm-animal-sounds-quiz or try this one for more challenge. https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/eyfs-listening-skills-animals-and-habitats/z7bgnrd You could finish off by singing Old MacDonald had a farm to reinforce farm animal noises. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGymN-Lc87M
- (ICT) Enjoy completing different farm jigsaw puzzles on a phone, tablet or laptop. There are 3 different levels to chose from (easy, medium and hard) and your child will need to drag and drop the pieces into the correct place https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/puzzles/down-on-the-farm-jigsaw
- (KUW) When your child is confident naming the farm animals, help them to learn about animal homes, the food they eat and the names of farm animal young using the photo and information slides.
- (CD/LLC) Draw, paint or colour a picture of their favourite farm animal. Reception children can write a simple description of their chosen farm animal using simple sentence starters. It is a....It eats.....It has......It lives......
- (PD) Develop gross motor skills by playing a farm animal movement game. Can you gallop like a horse? Can you roll like a pig? Use the picture cards and encourage them to move correctly in response to the card being held up.
- (PD) Encourage your child to develop their scissors skills by cutting out the simple shapes and placing them correctly to complete the farm animal picture.
- (LLC) If you have farm animal figures at home develop positional language vocabulary. Can you place the sheep on the chair, under the table, beside the television, infront of...., behind.... and so on. Or alternatively use the farm preposition poster and question card.
- Finally enjoy the half term break! Thank you for supporting your child with their learning at home. I'm sure you have all done a terrific job. Thank you. Mrs. Hurley.
