Our next topic is all about New Life & Springtime. (Week beginning 23rd March 2020).
If we were in school these are some of the topic related activities we were going to do:
Ask your child to write about something connected with spring. Encourage them to write for themselves, but step in to help when the words are really tricky. Some children will be able to write the initial letters of the words by themselves, others will manage whole sentences. Finger spaces between each word are very important!
In Maths we were going to work on taking away. To help this you can count backwards from 10 & then from 20 with your child. It will really help if they can do this by themselves! If you give your child an amount of objects, then ask them to take an amount away and say how many they have left this is good, particularly if they tell you in a sentence like this - 'first I had 9, then I took 4 away, now I have 5 left'.
I will send home next week's poem to learn - it would be a good idea to run through all the ones they have learnt so far!
Do remember all of the other activities on our school website too.
