Year R – Thursday’s Home Learning

Year R Home learning for Thursday 21st May

Subject focus What we need to learn: How we might learn it:
Literacy Children use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds. They also write some irregular common words.

Listen and watch the story ‘Tiddler’ on youtube or read the book if you have it.

Talk about all the different sea creatures you can spot in the story. Did any of them match the sea creature you found out about on Tuesday?

Discuss the different characters in the story and the different things that Tiddler says he gets up to.

Ask your child to draw a picture and write about their favourite part of the story.

Alternatively choose your own story to base this activity around.

Maths – Height Children use everyday language to talk about height.  They order to or three items by height.

Select three objects of obvious different heights and ask your child to order them in height order.  Talk to them about the words we use for describing height and support them in using the correct mathematical vocabulary. 

Challenge: Can they put their family in height order? Can they give reasons for their choices

Tall, taller, tallest.

Short, shorter, shortest.

Other: Physical development Children show good control and coordination in  large and small movements. They move confidently in a range of ways safely negotiating space.

Take part in the ‘Squish the Fish’ Yoga activity from Cosmic Kids at:

Offline alternative:

Ask your child to move in different ways by becoming a sea creature.

E.g. Move like a shark, octopus, fish, turtle,

Changing direction and speed as an extension.

Remember to email your child’s class teacher to let them know how you’ve got on. We’d love to see examples of what you’ve been up to.
