Latest EYFS updates

Welcome to EYFS ideas for Home Learning   w/b 1st March 2021

Good Morning!

This will be the final week of home learning before we welcome you all back to school. This week we will explore ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers. Thursday is World Book Day and this is the book that the whole school will be investigating too. So, if you have older brothers or sisters you can investigate together and maybe share activities? 

Please email your child’s learning in. We are collating all of this for your child’s learning journey and it is important to try to maintain some routine and learning. Then when they return to school it will be a smoother transition. Plus we are also going to make a display to recognise wonderful learning at home and at school, so these can be discussed and celebrated when all the children return.

Please be aware that all the teachers are still teaching class bubbles in school, so they may not be able to respond immediately - but they will get back to you as soon as they can! 

Just a reminder the class email addresses are:

squirrels@silverdaleprimaryacademy.org.uk

hedgehogs@silverdaleprimaryacademy.org.uk

rabbits@silverdaleprimaryacademy.org.uk

Don’t forget the Year group assembly at 10:30am on Tuesday, you can find the link at this page, but you'll need the password your parent has been sent via email: https://www.silverdaleprimaryacademy.org.uk/school-life/school-assemblies 

Also, don't forget the special World Book Day assembly at 9:30am on Thursday - you can find the link at the school assemblies’ page above. 

Here is an introduction to this week's home learning

A learning guide you may wish to follow…

EVERYDAY-We ask you spend 20 minutes on DoodleMaths, Fast Phonics and Reading Eggs please.

 

In addition to the daily plan here are some fun activities you may like to do throughout the week;

If you have paper plates (or draw around a plate) can you paint or colour one so it looks like planet earth, showing the land and the sea?

Choose one planet and investigate facts about it, you could represent/make it using collage, recycling, painting…?

Talk about night and day. Can you create two pictures of the same place at different times of the day? Why do we have night and day? Some animals are nocturnal! Are you nocturnal (active at night & sleep in the day)?

The dodo explains that it isn’t supposed to be in the book. Why is this? Can you find out about other animals that have become extinct? What can we do to protect animals on our planet?

Can you design a poster to support one way to look after planet earth?

Go on a doubling scavenger hunt. Ask a grown up to write you a  list of objects to collect, for example 1 green leave or 2 long sticks. Your job is double each one – happy hunting.

 Printing double. Fold your paper in half and paint one side and then watch your painting double!

 

Last week little bear went into space and shared his picnic with owl. Can you halve some different fruits? – some you will need cut like apples and some you may need to share like an orange. Watch out for all the other food you eat throughout the day – can it be halved?

Can you make some tin foil moon rocks? Try halving different amounts, do they always share equally? Talk about what we mean by odd and even numbers.

 

Monday

If you could ask Oliver Jeffers any questions what would they be? Write them as a list or write a letter to Oliver Jeffers.

Today’s challenge-

 In a quote shown at the back of the book, Oliver’s Dad says that

‘There are only three words you need to live by, son: respect, consideration and tolerance.’ What do these words mean?

They are very important, especially as we move onwards and upwards and work to put this virus behind us.

Here is Mrs Baker with an introduction to this week's home learning

These are a selection of other activities that you might like to do throughout the week

·         There are a few different animals in ‘The Little Red Hen’. What is your favourite animal? It doesn’t have to be one in the story. Could you draw or paint your favourite animal and research some facts about it? What do you already know about your favourite animal? You could even create your own animal? How is their home different to yours?

·         The animals were not very helpful to ‘The Little Red Hen’. It is very important to be kind and helpful. Could you write a list or a sentence of how you could be helpful at home or at school? You could write something that you have already done which was helpful.

·         Can you draw around your hand or hand print with paint and then make it into the character of ‘The Little Red Hen’?

·         Can you cut out different shapes and make a collage of a character from the story. How many different shapes can you use? You could try using 3D shapes too.

·         The bag of wheat was heavy in the story and that is why ‘The Little Red Hen’ asks for help to carry it. Can you find some objects in your house and order them from heaviest to lightest?

·         Can you make some bread using this recipe https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqkREe0wvkM and write a list of the ingredients and the equipment you used?

·         https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGb8ZFgNDhc Come Outside; Making bread

·         https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIOmgdNhcRQ Big Cook, Little Cook

·         Can you retell the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’? You may want to change the characters and the food made at the end.

·         Using the internet, can you research the life cycle of a hen and create a poster to show it? Please add labels or captions if you can. J

Welcome to EYFS ideas for Home Learning  

w/b 1st February 2021

Good morning. Wow the start of a new month already. Thank you again for all your emails, it’s a delight to open them and see the children so busy at home.  All the children’s work sent in is being added to their learning journeys, it’s lovely to be able to celebrate their (and your) achievements during these unusual times.

This week the work will be set out in days rather than in subjects. Hopefully this will be easier to navigate your way through, but please remember it’s still a guide and you need to pitch it right for your child.

Please be aware that all the teachers are also teaching class bubbles in school, so they may not be able to respond immediately - but they will get back to you as soon as they can! 

Just a reminder the class email addresses are:

squirrels@silverdaleprimaryacademy.org.uk

hedgehogs@silverdaleprimaryacademy.org.uk

rabbits@silverdaleprimaryacademy.org.uk

 

First - an introduction to this week's home learning from Miss Patterson:


A learning guide you may wish to follow…

EVERYDAY-We ask you spend 20 minutes on DoodleMaths, Fast Phonics and Reading Eggs?

In addition to the daily plan here are some fun activities you may like to do throughout the week;

·         Can you build your own bridge for the Billy Goats to safely cross? You could use Lego, blocks or junk modeling.

·         Can you use books or the internet and find out some interesting facts about goats. Can you make a goat fact file?

·         You could paint or draw a picture of the troll, can you label your picture? For example, hairy feet!

·         Play ‘What’s the time Mr Troll?’ – Let’s hope it’s not dinner time! J

·         The Billy Goats favourite food was sweet green grass. What is your favourite food? Can you make or draw your favourite plate of food? You could draw around a plate as a template or use a paper plate?

·         Can you draw some troll footprints and label them 1 to 10/20. Can you order the footprints?

·         The goats were all different sizes. Can you list 5 things that are taller than you and 5 things that are shorter?

·         The hooves of the Billy Goats were very noisy on the bridge. I wonder what different noises you can hear around you. Sit quietly and listen, what did you hear? Then try listening outside in your garden or when you go for a walk, what can you hear now? Can you write about the sounds you hear?

·         Try this special Billy Goats inspired recipe https://youtu.be/t3FtnTX3KUk With Big Cook Little Cook.

·         Oh no, the bridge has broken, how will the Billy goats cross now? Can you draw a solution, how can the goats cross the river to the sweet green grass?
