Good morning and welcome back.
I hope you have had a good half term and have enjoyed the sunshine.
Today, we are going to start a new topic on 'Transport', so let's start by singing a song:
Today is 'Make-it Monday' so we are going to play pretend and make a car or a bus in your home:
Sing 'The Wheels on the Bus' while you are driving.
Talk about where you are going on the bus- shopping? to town? to Asda? to visit friends? go to the park? the seaside?
Literacy and Language
Look at the pictures below and name and talk about each of the pictures.
Point out similarities and differences and any interesting features.
Ask children if they have seen these things before. Where? When?
Try to extend children's vocabulary and language skills. For example,
Today you are going to practice writing your numbers in your 'Busy Book'.
Follow the example below and remember to take your time.
If your child finds pencil control activities difficult, then give them a bigger piece of paper to write on and focus on numbers 1 2 3.
Later, read this book again yourself (without sound) so that you can emphasise the rhyming words.
Encourage your child to join in with some of the rhyming words with you.
Have a good day
