“One Rainy Day”

Reading is a essential way of supporting communication, language and building vocabulary and we want to ensure that the children hear as many stories a day as possible. Use this book to discuss with the children the weather and what is happening outside and why.

Things to consider when reading with your child:

Do they understand the story?

Can they name the characters in the story/animals?

Can they remember what happened at the beginning of the story/the end? Can they predict what they think may happen?

Maths

Our number of the week is number two. This week we are going to be looking at sorting objects in lots of different ways and spotting whether they are the same or different. There are lots of ways we can sort things, such as colour, shape, or size. Have a look at the picture below and see if you can talk to your adult about all the ways you could sort the objects.

We are also going to be looking at ‘big and little’. During the week the children will be seeing if they can spot objects that are big or little, and taking part in a size ordering game with the Stick Man. Can you see spot the big and little apple in the picture below?

Phonics

In our phonics this week we are starting to look at rhyme, this means we are going to listening to words that are nearly the same such as ‘cat’ and ‘bat’. Can you say those words with an adult? Do they sound nearly the same or different? We are going to be playing lots of different games which can help us learn about rhyme. You can read books with an adult too and listen out for any words that sound nearly the same! Look below for some home learning ideas.
