Wiggle Wednesday

Good morning everyone smiley

 

Whilst we have been away from school I have been reading lots about supporting children through this crisis. One article on 'Supporting Your Families Well-being' was particularly helpful. It suggested:

 

  1. Stories - reread stories from when children were younger.  Stories bring great comfort, especially those we know well. 
  2. Cuddles – during this time of social distancing, our children need all the hugs they can get from those who live with them. A ten second cuddle makes our children, and us, feel noticeably better. There’s science behind this, but just try it. It works. 
  3. Make the most of mealtimes – eat together and use the time to listen to what each other has to say. Whilst everything feels so strange, mealtimes can punctuate the day with a nice, new normal and a feeling of togetherness.

 

If you would like to contact your teachers for advice or to comment on anything about your child then please use the following emails: 

na@lawrence-primary.co.uk to contact Mrs Colby.

Language and Literacy

We have been talking about babies this week so lets play a game of 'I spy..' using pictures of baby items.

Picture 1
Picture 2
Picture 3
Picture 4
Picture 5
Picture 6

Talk about each of the pictures and name the baby items:

nappy      wipes       dummy       pram        cot           bottle

 

Next, Play 'I spy..' saying, 

  • "I spy, with my little eye, something....(describe the object)...                   in babies mouth."      "A dummy."
  • "I spy, with my little eye, something....where baby sleeps at night."
  • "I spy, with my little eye, something....Mum uses to wipe baby's bottom."

Challenge- Play 'I spy' using letter sounds, saying,

  • "I spy, with my little eye, something........beginning with p."         pram
  • "I spy, with my little eye, something........beginning with www."   wipes
  • "I spy, with my little eye, something........beginning with c."         cot

Mini Maths

Children have been developing their counting skills throughout the year and now know to say the number names in order when counting, whilst touching each object carefully.

Usually, we would now be focusing on number recognition, ensuring children are securely/ beginning to recognise numbers

  • first, numbers 1,2,3 
  • then numbers 1,2,3,4,5 
  • then numbers 6,7,8,9,10.

Some children will find this easy, others will find it more difficult.

Every child is different.

If your child can recognise numbers 1-10 already, then you could continue recognition to 20.

If your child is learning numbers 1-5 or 1-10, it is helpful if you put a number-line up on the wall/ fridge for children to see every day.

Simply write numbers     1     2     3     4     5    6     7    8     9     10   

clearly on a strip of paper.

Today is 'Wiggle Wednesday', so lets all dance and move together.

This is great for developing physical skills and strength but is also fun and helps us feel good. wink

Storytime

This is a great story to share with younger children and talk about how they have grown and don't have a dummy anymore. (Or 'pacifier,' as they call it in the book).

Enjoy the rest of your day smiley
