Week 06/11/2020

Please note you can choose if you want to do some or all of this home learning with your child. If you do not have a printer or wish not to print the homework, you can use resources you have at home to complete your child's home learning. All they need is plain paper and pencils/ felt tips/ crayons to have a go. 

Communication and Language -Talk Homework

Our topic this half term is 'lights and festivals'. Look at the pictures below and talk to your child about different types of lights and when/where they might see them. Talk about the different festivals they may see fireworks at - Bonfire Night, Diwali and New Years Eve. 

Phonics - Phase 1 Aspect 1 - Environmental sounds

Open the file below and try some of these activities with your child at home. 

Literacy - Writing

Use a plain piece of paper or print the page below and get your child to mark make/draw a picture of fireworks. Encourage your child to talk to you about what they have drawn and have a go at writing their name (with support). When you child is holding their pencils/ felt tips/ crayons encourage them to use a comfortable tripod grip:

Your child has also been sent home their name in their bookbag to practice writing. Please keep the piece of paper inside the plastic wallet and use a whiteboard pen to practice their name writing twice - once going over the letters and once by them writing their name independently (please see photos below). Your child needs to start at the back dot for each letter and follow the arrow to form each letter correctly.  The name writing page can be kept at home for the year for your child to keep practicing every week. You can use a tissue to rub out the whiteboard pen and they can practice again and again. You can send some photos via email of how your child is getting on with their name writing at home. 


Every week your child will be sent home a story in their bookbags. Please read this story with your child. Encourage your child to turn the pages and talk to them about where the words and pictures are and that we always read from left to right. After/ during reading you can ask your child some questions for understanding:

Where are the words?

What is happening in that picture?

What do you see? 

Where are they?

Who is in the story? Characters?

What do you think will happen next?

Did you like the story? Why?

What was your favourite part? Why?

How are they feeling? Why?



Click on the powerpoint below and follow the guidance for your child to count the fireworks they see/hear. Your child can also hold up the correct amount of fingers to match the number of fireworks. 

Expressive Arts and Design

If you have some paints and craft resources at home your child could have a go at using a scissors and glue to create a fireworks picture like the ones below. Talk to your child about what they are making and the colours they are using.
