We would like to share with you some ideas that could be used to support learning at home.
Keep talking! Encourage your child to talk about what s/he has been doing. Also encourage them to listen carefully to what others are saying and to ask questions.
We want to encourage reading for pleasure so please encourage your child to look at a range of books, both fiction and non fiction. It would be great if the children could talk about the pictures. Please enjoy the books your child brings home from nursery and we will change them on a Friday.
Phase One Phonics is fun! Listen to the sounds all around and use words to describe what you can hear. Make sounds using your voice, your hands, your feet. Play games with rhyming words, identifying which words rhyme or which words are the odd ones out.
Encourage your child to write, draw and make marks. It is important that they are able to tell you what it is they have written or drawn.
We want to encourage the children to be curious about and interested in numbers. Encourage them to count objects but also other things like claps, jumps and steps that they take. Look at numbers and try and match the correct number of objects to the numeral.
Look for shapes around the house. What shapes can you see?
Autumn is a lovely time to be explorers. Find out about the season of Autumn. Talk about the changes that happen in Autumn and think about the plants and the animals. Maybe do some craft activities making Autumn pictures from leaves you have found.
