Good morning everyone. I hope you have all managed to make the most of the snow over the past couple of days.

Message from the teachers – Watch the video below for a message from the teachers.

We have two zoom sessions a day for children who want to attend. The sessions are at 11am and 1.30pm and I will read a story during each session.

  • Share stories with your children daily, they are hugely important in their learning.
  • Please sing or say rhymes with your child. If you do not know the tune, don’t worry. Your child might know it, or you can make up a tune or you could always say it rather than sing it. See Day 1 for the words to some of our popular rhymes.
  • Please find opportunities for counting daily. This might be when playing with toys, having tea, or walking up the stairs.

Body Sounds – Listen to the sounds your feet make when walking/running/jumping etc. Listen when moving slowly, softly, fast, stomping hard etc. Try the movements in different types of footwear to see if the sound changes.

Nursery

Phonics – Voice sounds – Record your family saying a sentence such as ‘hello, can you guess who is talking?’ and then play the recordings to your child to see if they can recognise different voices. If you do not have many people in your family you could use the sound only from the ‘message from the teachers’ above.
