Class EJ: EYFS Learners

This week's learning is linked to the story, How many legs? by Kes Gray and Jim Field. 

 

Once again, your Maths will be linked to the 'White Rose Maths' materials. These are resources we use to supplement our learning in the classroom already, and also, over the remaining weeks of this term, the resources have been designed to address the expectations for this time of the year, in readiness for moving into Year 1.

 

Phonics learning will continue to be online games. The online games I refer to can be found on the Phonics Play website - a resource we use in the classroom. They are currently offering free access for parents, using the username: march20 and the password: home. If, however, you would prefer to keep using the English hub videos, then please use the links below.

 

English hub daily Phonics links

English hub videos for Reception learners (Phase 3)

English hub videos for Year 1 learners (Phase 5)

English hub videos for consolidating learning to blend (Phase 2) 

 

As always, I have created the English resources and activities - linked to this week's text (see the overview of activities below). I have also added some additional activities, again linked to How many legs?, which you may find useful for keeping busy in the afternoons. Finally, there are some additional printable activities, should you wish to use them.

 

Please remember to only go online with an adult at home. It is important to stay safe online (just like in the real world!) Remember there are useful tips available on the 'Think you know' website.

The animals are all arriving at the boy's house for a tea party. I'm sure, like me, you love playing party games. Why not have fun playing some party games at home?

There are a number of different animals that arrive throughout the story. Choose your favourite animal (it could be from the story or one of your own choice) and make a model of your chosen animal. You could use playdough, junk modelling materials or construction resources, such as Lego. I love seeing your amazing creative work - ask an adult at home to send me a photograph of your fantastic model via our class email.

Make a peg octopus! Using the template provided (or draw your own) colour in the octopus and then cut it out. You may like to use some card, a paper plater or thin cardboard (ask an adult to help with cutting out the cardboard as it can be tricky) to strengthen your work. Then, add pegs for the octopus's tentacles. I wonder if you know how many pegs you will need?

There are a huge number of wonderful books that feature animals in them. Think about your favourite story with animals in. You could either read it with someone at home or you could retell the story. You might even use some of your toys as puppets. Enjoy!
