Nursery - Home Learning - 29th June 2020

English

This week we are going to look at the letter E which makes the sound e, the letter U that makes the sound u and the letter R that makes the sound r

Focus on one letter a day to help embed learning.

English Activity Ideas

Go for a hunt round your house. How many things can you find beginning with the letter e, u and r.
Have a go at writing the letters e, u and r.
Get a grown up to help you make a list of things that start with the letter e e.g. egg, elephant, eight, elbow... Could you draw a picture to go with each word? Try the letters u and r.
E is for elephant. Can you make an elephant face mask using a paper plate?  Make some Elmer the Elephant ears then go for a walk.  Use your elephant ears to do some super listening.  What can you hear?
U is for up, under and umbrella. Can you make or decorate an umbrella?
R is for rainbow, robin and rocket. Why not try some rainbow writing?  Decorate a tray or a box lid with rainbow colours then cover with salt or flour. Now try writing some letters or words to reveal the rainbow below.
Use chalk to write the letters learnt so far on the ground then jump from letter to letter and shout out the letter as you land on it.

Draw round your foot and write one letter on each foot.  Make a trail of footprints round your garden and as you step on each footprint say the sound that is on it.

Use your construction vehicles to collect letter rocks and try spelling some words like cat, dog, sat etc.

Don’t forget to send pictures of the things you do at home to Miss Goodwin and Miss Durose.  Grown-ups if you give permission in your message we will add to our school, Twitter and Instagram. vgoodwin@picknalls.co.uk

Maths

This week we are going to look at time, focusing on o’clock.

We will be using an analogue clock.

This is a clock that has a face, a little minute hand and a big hour hand.

In school your teachers use the clock in the classroom to tell us when it is time for assembly, lunch and home-time.

Do you have an analogue clock in your home?

Here are some ideas you could try at home.

O’clock is where the big hand is at the 12 and the small hand is on a number.

Can you make your own analogue clock using a paper plate or some cardboard cut into a circle? Put numbers 1-12 around the edges. A trick is to put 12 at the top, 6 directly below and 3 at the right side and 9 at the left side. You could use split pins to fix a small hand and a long hand to the middle of the clock.

We have lunch at 12 O’clock in school, can you find this on your clock?

Miss Goodwin goes to bed at 9 O’clock can you now find this on your clock?

Do you know how to play ‘What’s the time Mr Wolf’?

Have a go completing these clock times, remember to check the time before you draw on the hands.

Connected Curriculum

Our Topic this half term is Cultural Carnival.

Each week we will visit a different country.

This week we are off to Denmark.

Can you draw and colour this flag?

 First acknowledged in 1219, the Danish flag remains the oldest state flag in the world still in use by an independent nation.

The official language of Denmark is Danish which is a language similar to Norwegian and Swedish.

The capital city of Denmark is Copenhagen, located on the island of Zealand.

With historical palaces and gardens and the world-famous Tivoli Garden amusement park in downtown Copenhagen, it is the most visited of all Nordic cities.

Design a theme park ride, give it a name and describe what it does and how it works
Draw a map of your own theme park and label it.

Here is a map of Denmark.

Can you have a go at sounding out some of the places you can see?

Can you find Kolding?

Denmark shares a land border with Germany and is connected to Sweden by the Øresund-Bridge.

Even though they invented handball, football is still the national sport. They won the European Championship in 1992, and this is still one of the proudest moments in Danish sports history.

What sport do you enjoy? Take a photo of yourself doing a sport and email it into Miss Goodwin.

Danish Vikings invaded Western Europe and ventured as far as North Africa during the 9th and 10th centuries.

What can you find out about the Vikings?
