F2 Home Learning

The nature of how we learn in the Foundation Stage means that much of our learning is practical and play based. This will be reflected in the ideas and activities that we will be providing for home learning. We will do our best to provide ideas and activities that can be carried out with materials and things you can easily find at home. 

We will provide a daily Phonics and Maths lesson by a pre-recorded video. Please watch these with your child and support them with the completing the linked practice activities.

We will also provide 2 sight word video lessons a week, in which we will teach new sight words, as we would in school.

Finally, we will provide 3 Topic or theme-based video lessons with a linked activity to be completed each week.

Please check in here every day for the latest video lessons.

Stories you could listen to with your child are 'A Squash and a Squeeze' by Julia Donaldson or 'Room on the Broom' by Julia Donaldson. You can search for these on YouTube.

Week beginning 12th October 2020

 

This week in Maths we are learning about repeating patterns.

Patterns can be made with colours, shapes, noises, actions, natural objects...in fact with anything you have around the house.

We are working on simple patterns this week. Here are some examples:

red  blue  red  blue  red  blue  red  blue

clap  stamp  clap  stamp  clap  stamp

no   yes   no   yes   no   yes

apple  orange  apple  orange  apple  orange

fork  spoon  fork  spoon  fork  spoon

 

Encourage your child to say the pattern out loud to help them notice how the pattern repeats the part that is the same (eg: the 'red blue' part or the 'clap stamp' part) over and over and over again.

Children should be able to notice the pattern, copy patterns, continue a pattern that already shows 3 repeats of the pattern and create their own repeating patterns.

Please use the resource sheets below, alongside items you have at home (building blocks, bricks, toy cars, fruit, cutlery, sticks, leaves) to support your child in learning about repeating patterns.

Don't forget to sing some songs with repeating patterns, such as 'Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes' or 'Clap you hands and Wiggle your Fingers.'
