We hope you had a wonderful weekend. Only one more week of home learning before half term. Please remember that the games below are progressive so you will only need to choose one from each subject. Parents decide on the game your child can access.
Sing-a-long with Mr Hapus as he labels his feelings in Welsh.
Hapus ydw i - I am Mr Happy
Trist ydw i - I am Mr Sad
Tawel ydw i -I am Mr Quiet
Swnllyd ydw i - I am Mr Noisy
This week we will be learning about shape.
Game 1: This week I would like you to explore a 2D shape a day. Today's shape is a circle. I would like you to make a circle art painting. You could use a sponge, a potato, a beans tin, plastic bottle, bingo dabber, end of building blocks etc. Fill the page with circles. Name or sign as you make your picture. Take a look at the images to give you some ideas.
Game 2: Sorting and naming 2D shapes. You will need a range of shapes e.g. square, rectangle, circle, triangle, pentagon etc. I know that these shapes might be tricky but have a look in your Tupperware cupboard, recycling box or cut shapes from paper . You'll be surprised at what you will find around the house. Place all your shapes in a basket, muddling them all up. Challenge your child to find all of the squares, circles etc. Can they tell you something about the shape e.g. a square has four straight sides that are all the same length. I've added some images to give you ideas.
Game 3: What I am? Recognise, name and describe squares, rectangles, circles, triangles, pentagon and hexagon. For this game you will need a range of shapes. Lay them out in front of your child. Now we are going to play a 'What am I game? Ask them to point to different shapes, using shape names or describing properties. E.g. Point to a shape with a curved side. Point to a triangle. Repeat for different shapes.
Expressing how we feel and labelling it can be difficult. Children need opportunities and experiences. Here is a lovely, creative experience so they can learn through play. It Please open the button to watch how to make feelings masks from CBeebies. You will need:
Game 1: Snowy Day Picture Scene
Pictures provide context, which helps children make educated guesses about words that are unfamiliar. This teaches children to look at illustrations when they encounter difficult words and to think about what the picture shows and what is happening in the story. Using 'single picture scenes' also helps strengthen working memory. Below I would like you to open the 'Snowy Day Image' Look and discuss with your child. I've added some prompt cards for this beginning level.
Did you all enjoy Friday's book called 'This Floats, that Sinks'? Did you conduct your own investigation? Today I would like you to gather some different objects. I would like you to find out if they are 'Fantastic Floaters or Super Sinker'. You will need: a coin, a pencil, a cotton ball, a crayon, rubber band and a stick. To extend this task I've added some recording sheets.
