How to help your child with toileting

                                                                     Home Learning, March 1st week


First of March today, not long till it will be Spring time so there might more signs of Spring for you to look out for this week! Thank you for the photos already sent on Tapestry of Spring Walks, in school we went on a walk too and saw some frogspawn in the pond!

On your walk or in your garden, you could look for some objects to count with (see photo) It is still a bit chilly outside so you could do some Just Dance to warm up. Have you tried Kids 2 Jump UP   or Just dance 2014 A pirate you shall be !


For finger exercises today sing Tommy thumb and two little dickie birds. Instead of using the names Peter and Paul, try using your child's name, your name or siblings names.


Today's book is Mad About Minibeasts 


Today’s story is ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’.  What would you do if a tiger came to your house? What do you think it would like to play with?

Here is a clip about tigers in the wild…

Do you have a pet? Does it have any patterns on its fur or skin?

You could do a pattern hunt in your house to find some stripes, maybe you have a stripy top or socks? What colour are the stripes?

Have a dance to 'Hey Tiger'  by Robbie Williams from the animated story of The Tiger Who Came to Tea 


Todays story is Oi Cat. In these series of stories the animals have to follow rhyming rules on where they can sit. After the story could you find something that rhymes with cat or mog in your house?

Here is a clip with information about cats

Dough Dance : 

Thursday 4th March


World Book Day !

After reading your favourite book, could you talk about what you like about it, is there a picture you like?

Please send photos on Tapestry!

Tuesday 23rd February

Today's story is Percy the Park Keeper and his animal friends are doing some counting. After the story you could write some numbers between 1-5 and ask your child to find objects to match the numbers. See if they can use their fingers to represent the number. They could also draw lines to represent the number like a tally or have a go at forming the numbers.

If they can do that easily try numbers up to 10, see if they can put the numbers in order and ask them to say one more of a given number.

Story: Percy the Park Keeper

Wednesday 24th February

Today you could look out for signs of Spring either in your garden or on a walk. Does it smell different? What is the weather like today? Is it warmer? What can you see starting to grow? Which season are we in now? Spring starts on March 20th. We will come back to learning about Spring further on in the term to discuss more changes they will see. Here is a link to an information book about Spring. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_fIEWViJyE

* Clapping games: Learn to sing and play some simple clapping games eg. “A sailor went to sea, sea, sea…” , Pat a cake

FS1 Home learning week 8th February


 I've changed our plans for today as its snowing!! Get wrapped up warm and venture out into the snow. Today you could make tracks in the snow with your footprints, count them as you go. Are there any other footprints? Maybe someone has already been out in the snow or an animal has been looking for some food... If the snow gets thick enough you could try doing a self portrait, either use some stones for your face or if you have some food colouring try using it as paint (see photo). To warm up have a go at Just Dance Freeze game https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ebf3dGGdFg  ( the song will get stuck in your head! )

Our phonics activity today is about syllables. Model how to syllable clap your name then your child's name. See if your child can do any other family names. You could also try using objects around the house eg ap /ple ( See document for more information).

Today's story is  Elmer In the Snow


Today is internet safety day. Our story today is called Penguin Pig (On Tapestry read by Miss Wilcockson)   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MoGYnmp6v6w

 Afterwards you could talk to your child about following the same rules when using the internet. Maybe your child could have a go at creating their own made up creature eg a cow horse, dinopig or a unicorn sheep!

Here is a link to help set up parental controls if you are on Sky, BT, Talk Talk or Virgin Media: Parental control set up

This is a link for setting up further controls on different devices: Devices parental control

Your child could have a go at the ladybird spots math's game on Topmarks : Topmarks ladybird counting game

Here's a snowman counting song You could have a go at drawing five snowmen and crossing them off as they melt away.

Wednesday 10th

Today you could have a go at writing your own farm animal poem! Thinking about all the farm animals we learnt last week and the animals in the ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ story, choose one for your poem. Here is mine:

Farm Poem

I am a horse.

I can gallop

I can neigh

I feel smooth

Your turn...

I am (think of an animal) a…..

I can (how does it move?)…

Please send me your poems!

Some children may be ready to practice holding their pencils correctly. Here is a demo and song to show them how to hold it.   If you feel your child is not quite ready, do not worry, keep practicing with play dough, do the dough dance and finger rhymes such as Tommy thumb or Twinkle Twinkle. There are also other finger work outs on You Tube with Early Years Emily https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RU6pBT-OAo

This week is children's mental health week and we shall be watching a 5 minute video a day from the BBC teach website ' Feeling Better'. Today we shall learn about feeling happy. https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/pshe-early-years-foundation-stage-ks1-feeling-better/zm2st39.    How do you feel today? 

Our book this week is ' What the Ladybird Heard' by Julia Donaldson

Julia Donaldson also made a song based on the book: 

Do you have a favourite part in the story? Which is your favourite animal or insect? Maybe you could draw it and send the photo to Tapestry!



Today's farm animal we are learning about is the horse (see video). I went on a walk and saw some horses in a field .

Some were wearing coats to keep them warm, a bit like we do when we go outside! Are there any animals when you go for a walk? Here is a video clip of Wigfield farm singing old Macdonald using the animals from their farm: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3dDW0RblXU 

Today you could have a look at Feeling Sad on the BBC clip: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/pshe-eyfs-ks1-feeling-sad/zj7qt39 

How do you feel today?


This week is also National Storytelling week. Can you try and make a story using your toys at home? We will make one at school too and share it with you. For example: Maybe your toy dinosaur makes some biscuits with a monkey toy and they make lots of mess! Then, when the biscuits are baked and cooling, they roll away out of the door!... ( it can help to base it on a familiar story). I'm looking forward to reading your stories, please send them on Tapestry. 

Today's feeling is anger : https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/pshe-eyfs-ks1-feeling-angry/zmg97nb

Have you ever felt lonely, what did you do?
Today's story is The Paper Dolls. This lovely story reminds us that even if something or someone is not there, you can always remember them and all the fun you had. You might like to think about your friends and family you can't see right now or maybe a pet that passed away.


Todays feeling we are learning about is feeling worried: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/pshe-eyfs-ks1-feeling-worried/zb6ngwx  I hope you have enjoyed learning about different feelings this week for Mental Health week. There are other emotions on the BBC website if you would like to explore more. The story today is Ruby's worry. For more ideas and information about Children's mental health week visit https://www.childrensmentalhealthweek.org.uk/parents-and-carers/ 

Other activities you could try over the weekend: 'What the ladybird heard' listening game  Can you make the animal noise and do the Makaton sign for the animal?

You could have a go at playing a farm themed action listening game. Eg Moo like a cow, gallop like a horse, move like a pig in mud. If your child finds it too easy add in Simon says so they have to listen and follow rules really carefully.
Have a lovely weekend.
