Topic - Frogs (23/3/20)

Our focus this week is how frogs grow. Last week in Nursery the children saw frogspawn. The frogspawn has now hatched and we have tadpoles. Look at the video clip of our tadpoles moving. Talk about what the tadpoles look like and how they move.

Phonics and Literacy (23/3/20)

Activity 1

Our book this week is a rhyming story called 'Oi Frog' by Kes Gray and you can listen to it being read on You /tube at the following link:

Activity 2

'Tadpole' begins with a /t/ sound. When we say this sound, we say it in it's shortest form and try not to say 'tuh'. We add an action of turning our head to and fro as if watching a tennis  ball being passed over the net. 

Look around for things beginning with the sound /t/. What can you find? Draw a picture or take photos and add to Tapestry. In this activity you are helping your child to listen to the initial (or first) sound in a word. 

Mathematics (23/3/20)

Learn our number rhyme of the week, encouraging your child to recite numbers in order to 5.

Topic - Frogs (24/3/20)

What will our tadpoles grow into? Use Google to research the life cycle of a frog. Draw a picture of each stage in your workbook.

Phonics and Literacy (24/3/20)

Look at the pictures. Which objects start with the sound /t/? Talk to your child about which ones begin with /t/. What sounds do the other objects begin with?

Re-read (or listen!) to our rhyming story 'Oi Frog'. Listening to the same story each day helps a child become familiar with it and they will begin to join in or fill in the words as it is being read. 

Mathematics (24/3/20)

Re-visit our number rhyme '5 Little Speckled Frogs'. Practise reciting numbers in order to 5, recognising numbers to 5, writing numbers to 5 or counting 5 objects or actions.

Topic - Frogs (25/3/20)

What colour are frogs?

Can you go on a green colour hunt around your home? What green things can you find? How many green things did you find? Can you think of anything else which is green?

When we made powder paint in Nursery, some of us mixed two colours together to make green paint. Can you remember which colours we mixed to make green?

Phonics and Literacy (25/3/20)

'Frog' begins with a /f/ sound. When we say this sound, we add an action of pushing our hands together as if we are holding a deflating balloon.

For a You Tube demonstration of letter sounds and their actions follow the link:

Look around for things beginning with the sound /f/. What can you find? Draw a picture or take photos and add to Tapestry. In this activity you are helping your child to listen to the initial (or first) sound in a word.

Topic - Frogs (26/3/20)

What are frogs good at?

Frogs are good at jumping! Can you jump like a frog? Can you squat down onto the ground and then jump up into the air? Today we are going to some jumping. Here are some of the activities you can do.

Remember - feet together, springy ankles and bend your knees!

  • Put pieces of paper on the floor or draw chalk 'lily pads' outside. Can you jump from lily pad to lily pad?
  • Use a dice. Roll a number and do that many jumps. If you don't have a dice, ask someone at home to give you a number and try to do that many jumps.
  • Ask your Mummy, Daddy, brother or sister to jump - can you count how many jumps they do?
  • Make a number line to 10 on the floor by writing numbers on paper or writing numbers in chalk on the ground in your yard. Jump along the number line, saying the number you are on. 

Toddler Approved!: Lily Pad Hop

  • How far can you jump? Draw a 'starter' line and then mark where you land. Who can jump the furthest in your house?
  • Use the resource cards from Twinkl to explore different types of jumps.

Phonics and Literacy (26/3/20)

Look at the pictures. Which objects start with the sound /f/? Talk to your child about which ones begin with /f/. What sounds do the other objects begin with?

Remember to listen to our story of the week, 'Oi Frog'.

For a different story, listen and watch the traditional story of 'The Frog Prince' on the following You Tube link:

Topic - Frogs (27/3/20)

Yesterday you did lots of jumping! I hope you had fun and your legs aren't too tired today?

Frogs are good at jumping. What other animals jump? Ask your grown-up if you can use Google to look for animals that jump. Draw a picture of animals that jump in your workbook.

Phonics and Literacy (27/3/20)

For parents!

Today we are going to explore words that rhyme. Rhyming words are words that have the same sound at the end, for example, cat and bat or snake and cake. Learning to recognise rhyming words is an important early pre-reading skill. There are 3 stages of learning to rhyme:

  1. Hearing rhyme - it is important that your child gets used to hearing and repeating rhyming words. This is why we sing nursery rhymes! It is also important that we share rhyming stories with our children (like our book of the week 'Oi Frog').
  2. Recognising rhyme - your child will begin to identify two words that rhyme.
  3. Producing rhyme - your child will begin to think of words that rhyme with another and create their own 'rhyming string'. 

Please don't worry if your child struggles with today's activity. Recognising rhyming words needs a lot of repetition and practise.

Activity

Look at the pictures below. Can you see the frog? We're going to look for words that rhyme (sound the same) as frog. Which of the words rhyme with frog?

Parents - Your child may find it easier if you say pairs of words, for example, "frog/dog - do they rhyme?" Alternatively you can ask your child to find the word that is the odd one out (does not rhyme with frog)

We will revisit rhyme in the coming days and weeks but if you would like some more examples, see below. You can either say the words as pairs, asking your child if the words rhyme or you can find the one word which does not rhyme with the others (the odd one out)
