Friday 24th April
Dear Class R parents and Carers,
Your children have done such amazing work this week and have been submitting so many fantastic things, ranging from pictures, writing, songs, videos, paintings and creations. The level of engagement has been remarkable from so many of you.
I have set quite a lot this week and am conscious that I don't want any of you to feel obliged to complete everything. Our EYFS curriculum covers 17 areas of learning and I set a range so that you can choose what works best for you. As I have said before there is never an expectation to complete everything. It is more a case of trying to give a broad range of topics.
Today I would like the children to continue with their stories. If you can encourage your children to use their phonics knowledge to support their writing and use their sounds and red word sheets to help. Don't forget finger spaces, capital letters and punctuation too.
As we have been working on 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' over the past two weeks I would like the children to think about the life cycle of the butterfly - Starting with an egg, followed by a caterpillar, before moving into a cocoon and finally transforming into a butterfly. As such I would like the children to create their own life cycle. They could choose to draw this, paint a picture or even use materials around the home or garden to create their life cycle. Please see the attached pictures for ideas.
Today looks like being another warm day so some time outside would be great. As we have been looking at mini beasts and various insects I would like the children to consider another animal we see and hear a lot of at this time of year, birds.
Therefore I would like the children to use things they find around the garden / outside to create their own birds nest. Please see the attached sheet for description of how to approach this.
Mrs Wyman will be setting a challenge around lunchtime today so please look out for that and have a go at this.
Please note that I have purposefully not set anything from their phonics or maths books as I want to give you an opportunity to work on some of the activities from earlier in the week that you may not have had time to undertake.
If you do finish the activities set above please could you look to work on Doodle Maths or free play on letter - join.
