Week beginning 23rd March Set Homework

Please open the following document to see what activities we would like you to try at home this week.

It would be beneficial for your child that during the school closure you could also support their learning with the following…

  • Writing their name- both tracing and then copying letters. Once secure to then write their names independently,  without a visual clue.
  • Drawing pictures with your child- encourage them to discuss the different parts and shapes used (also practice holding a pen/pencil correctly)
  • Number recognition and writing numbers 0 -10
  • Reciting numbers 0-20 – counting to 20 in different ways (e.g. silly voices, loud, quiet etc). Children could also practice counting various amounts of objects, making sure they use one number per object (we encourage putting objects into a straight line to do this).
  • Shapes- recognising and describing common 2D shapes (e.g. square, circle, triangle, rectangle, pentagon, hexagon, oval, diamond). A square has 4 corners and 4 sides. They are all the same length etc. Children could go on a shape hunt around their homes and draw what they see.
  • Reading stories with your child- encouraging them to retell the story, join in with the repetitive language (e.g. “run, run as fast as you can, you can’t catch me I’m the ginger bread man” and to predict story endings.
  • Rhyme- Singing nursery rhymes, playing rhyming games (see phonics play or home learning packs)
  • Alliteration- words that start with the same sound (e.g. Naughty Nelly nibbles nuts) Also see phonics play or home learning packs.

    *Any learning that your child does at home, REMEMBER to upload onto ILD so we can see how well they are doing!
