Class EJ: EYFS Learners

This week's learning is linked to another Julia Donaldson story, Zog. 

 

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 have updated their website this week, however the format is the same. 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 English slideshow and overview of activities below). I have also added some additional activities, again linked to Zog, 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.

To help with your handwriting skills, it is important to work on your fine motor skills - just like we do in the classroom. There are some sheets provided or, if you'd prefer, why not make something out of playdough (perhaps a model of Zog!) - another great way of working on those important skills.
