Well we made it to Friday – 1 and a half weeks down of home learning for FS! 🙌 I hope you are enjoying some of the activities so far.
After Joe Wickes why not try out ‘Dough Disco’, it’s a finger workout for children. It is shown to improve fine motor skills, literacy and counting. This is a great activity for indoors. Join Shonette Bason-Wood at 9.30am everyday for live Dough Disco on her YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCj0shfH3pzhrf3dOrSj_pRw?fbclid=IwAR1st85sGHrXhIkXh5fx29QnuxXTtfiBAtpHi-DbhfrkumKKlYjltkabOBk
Today’s challenge: Can you make your own play dough? If you have the ingredients at home why not have a go at making your own play dough. You can help to measure out the ingredients you need then mix it together. If you have any food colouring you can add to make it colourful.

Have you sung the alphabet phonics song yet? Why not have a sing song over the weekend and see if you can get your family to join in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zKr44iBFT0
Maths – Can you go on a number hunt around your house or on your daily walk – what numbers can you see? I would love to see pictures of what you can find.
Phonics – Keep practicing and recapping your phonics. The link below has a great selection of phase 3 games and videos to help you practice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHDDJiiS2Y0 https://www.youtube.com/results?sp=mAEB&search_query=simply+phonics+phase+3
Maths – Number work practice – keep working on counting, ordering, adding, subtracting, doubling, halving/sharing – this can be done practically with objects at home or written down number sentences.
Please keep the observations and photographs coming – it is lovely to see what you are keeping busy with.
