30.4.18 - Home Learning Challenge

30.4.18 - Home Learning Challenge 1 Over the next few weeks are numeracy learning will be based around recognising and talking about the properties of basic 2D shapes. Here are some ideas for you to support your child's learning at home. - After reciting the names of all the shapes, point to a shape and have your child tell you what shape it is. - Describe the properties of the shape e.g. 'It has 4 sides and 4 corners.' Have your child point it out. - Use the picture to spot shapes around the house – for example, the door is a rectangle, the window is a square, the door knob is a circle and so forth. - Have your child make the shapes out of playdoh. - Have your child sort shapes into groups. - Have your child practice drawing each of the shapes – start by having the child trace the shapes and then move to drawing them freehand. - Here is a link to an online game that develops knowledge and understanding of shapes: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/early-years/shape-monsters

16.3.18 - What a fantastic World Book Day! Thank you for all the children and families for supporting the event.

15.3.18- British Science week! Today we learnt about primary colours and explored what happens when they are mixed together! We made predictions and checked if we were right! We REALLY enjoyed doing a ‘crawling colours’ experiment - seeing what would happen to the clear glass in between two primary colours. Ask your child and see if they can remember the primary colours and what happens when they are mixed! 💥🎨
