We love to see the super learning that is taking place at home so don't forget to send photo's to our Nursery Class email. You can ask Miss Ridley questions there too about the learning activities.
This week we are continuing to add more alliteration activities to our phonics page. This is to increase the children's awareness of the sounds at the beginning of words as well as the sounds they can hear at the end of words that rhyme. It would be a good idea to keep using rhyming stories, songs and games even as we introduce alliteration and I have added a selection of rhyming stories onto the Super New Stories page. I will also be adding a collection of Familiar Stories We Love that we have shared during the year as we can learn new things with familiar stories, songs and rhymes and I have put suggested activities that you could do with the stories on both pages. So far we have shared the Traditional Tales 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears', 'The Three Little Pigs', 'Little Red Riding Hood', 'The Gingerbread Man' and this week I have added 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. Being able to retell traditional tales by heart is a very valuable skill and can support the children when it comes to making up their own stories too. By giving the children different versions of the same story or a what happened next story you are encouraging them to think about how they could change and adapt a story themselves.
Daily singing and story activities are really important. As well as you reading stories and rhymes to them why not ask them to share familiar stories and rhymes with you. There will be new alliteration songs over the next few weeks and I will add video clips to Twitter to help with the tunes.
Maths and writing activities will be linked to the stories we are sharing or focusing on gaps identified from the Spring term assessments so keep checking the pages and remember we need to build our fine and gross motor skills muscles to help us hold and use pens and pencils for writing.
