Learn at Home with Polperro Nursery 13/07/2020 

Home learning- 13/07/20

 Hello everyone,

We hope that you are all well. The weather has been a mixture of rain and sun this last week but we hope that you have all made the most of it and have been making some wonderful memories.

We have had our first sunflower and bean appear on the plants that Jane has been taking care of which is lovely and hopefully some more will arrive soon.

Below are the home learning activities for this week. There is a range of things to try and complete and remember to please continue to find time to learn alongside your child and enjoy the opportunity to talk to them about their learning. 



Take Care and stay safe

Julie, Jane and Ati.

 Any queries then please contact Julie (jpeat@polperroprimary.co.uk)


EYFS: There are four guiding principles that should shape practice in early years settings. These are: Every child is a unique child who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self assured. Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships. We encourage early learning by : playing and exploring, active learning and creating and thinking critically. Therefore we encourage this use of time with your child to build on these skills. 



Reading


Please read to your child everyday and talk about what you read together with family and friends. The following websites have an extensive range of books available for all ages so please take a look.
https://www.storylineonline.net/
https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/have-some-fun/storybooks-and-games/



Phonics Phase 1- Environmental sounds 

This week try the following activities:

* Scavenger hunt. Go on a hunt around the house and ask your child to find objects and items of interest. Ask them to make different sounds with the objects that they find. E.g. Apple- crunch,  clock- tick tock, a pencil- tap tap. Allow your child time to explore the items and talk about the sounds made.

* Enlivening stories. Involve your child in songs and stories that can be enlivened by props such as instruments/voices.
Example 1- The Three Billy Goats Gruff. Use your voice or instruments to create the effects. 'Whose that trip trapping over my bridge?' (trip, trap, trip, trap)

Example 2- 'Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet eating her curds and whey (yum, yum). Along came a spider (Ahhhhhh) who sat down beside her and frightened Miss Muffet away'.




Maths


We are exploring number this week. Activities to try include:

* Hand print number line (See picture). Paint your child's hands or if you don't have paint you could draw around them on paper and colour them in. Make at least ten or more to extend the number line. Label them 1-10 (you could ask your child to have a go at this). Encourage your child to talk about numbers and to recognise numbers as you carry the activity out.


*Caterpillar finger prints (See picture below) Print the attached caterpillar head sheet or ask your child to draw their own caterpillar heads on a piece of paper. Ask your child to paint their finger tips and create the bodies of the caterpillars but making sure that the number of finger prints they make matches the number on the sheet. Ask them to talk about the numbers as they carry it out. Your child could make their own caterpillars and add more fingerprints to further number recognition.

Our whole school enquiry is all about our home County and it is ‘What’s all the fuss about Cornwall?- Please join in!
Cornwall is well known for pirates, so with this in mind why not have a try at making a pirate hat with your child. There is a template attached if you want to print and use it or you could create your own. Ask your child to decorate their hat.

This week try the following activities:

* Jam jar piano (see picture) You will need some jam jars or whatever jars you can find in your house. Fill each one with water but fill to different levels. You can add food colouring if you want to make them look colourful. Give your child some chopsticks or spoons and encourage them to explore the different sounds they make. Talk about loud and quiet, do they sound the same? Do they like the sounds they hear?

Home learning- 22/06/20

Hello everyone, 
We hope that you have all had a lovely week and are keeping busy whilst staying safe and looking after yourselves.

I have attached the picture showing the progress of the beans and sunflowers that were planted before we left nursery. As you can see, Jane continues to look after them well and after measuring has seen them all grow so much and get so tall. We can't wait until we see those beautiful yellow sunflowers appear.

Below are the home learning activities for this week. We have seen some lovely work the past few weeks so keep up the good work and remember to please continue to find time to learn alongside your child and enjoy the opportunity to talk to them about their learning.

This week try the following activities:

* Tin can drums and chimes (see picture) Collect some different sized tin cans. Ask your child to decorate them with paper, pens or paint. You can pop holes in to string them and hang them up or simply turn over the cans. Using sticks or spoons, ask your child to bang and tap and play their tin can instruments.

* Musical show and tell. Perform a short instrumental piece of music using any materials that you can create music with (this could be pots and pans, spoons, clapping or simply tapping on the floor). Encourage your child to join in and say what they liked about each of the noises made and talk about what else could be used to create different sounds. Ask them to play something for you.

Maths


We are exploring shape, space and measure this week. Activities to try include:

*Lid top match (see picture) Collect some different shaped and sized lids and get a thick piece of cardboard. Using the lids, push down hard onto the card. You will have made several lid shapes. Ask your child to sort which lid goes onto which shape on the card. Encourage your child to talk about what they are doing and what shapes they can see.

*Family drawings. On large pieces of paper, ask your child to lie down. Draw around them. Repeat with different members of your household. You can use chalk to draw around each other if you can't get paper long enough. Encourage your child to compare different heights of each family member and see if they can order for shortest to tallest. Your child can also carry out this activity using different toys e.g. dolls.

 Phonics Phase 1- Environmental sounds

This week try the following activities:

* Song of the wood (see attached sheet) Go on a walk in the woods and see what you can hear. Use the sheet to tick off sounds of interest. Encourage your child to listen and discuss what they can hear and talk about other sounds that they think might be found in the woods.


* Scavenger hunt. Go on a scavenger hunt. This could be done indoors or out. Find different coloured items and use the colour chart attached as a guide or you could stick the items to the correct colour on the sheet once found. As your child finds these items encourage them to talk about what they are, what they are used for or whether they make a sound.


Maths


We are exploring number this week. Activities to try include:

*Number songs. Sing number and counting songs with your child. Take at look at the links and join in with 'Five current buns' and 'five little ducks'. Some of the children will probably know these well from singing them at nursery.

*Counting and sorting (see picture) Use a pen to number cupcake cases. If you have pom poms use them but you can also use other items such as pasta or cereal. Encourage your child to sort the correct number of pom poms into the correct numbered bun cases. You can number as many cases as you think your child can sort. You could also encourage colour recognition by asking for a particular number of coloured pom poms to be put into each bun case. You can also paint pasta and use this.

 Phonics Phase 1- Instrumental sounds

This week try the following activities:

* Simon says. Gather some different instruments or objects that make different noises and sounds. Play the game Simon says except you can change it to the name of your child. Then play using the instruments or objects you have at home. 'Simon says, bang your drum' 'Simon says clap your hands'.

* Loud and quiet. Find items in your house that make different sounds e.g pots and pans. You could even have a try at making some shakers. Encourage your child to play them using the concepts of loud, quiet, fast and slow. You can play your instruments to songs that your child knows well and see if they can identify how the instrument could be played for each. For example playing quietly and softly to 'Twinkle Twinkle little star'.


Maths


We are exploring Shape, space and measures this week. Activities to try include:

*Shape game (See picture) Draw some large shapes (you will need a few of each) and once done place them in a random order on the floor or outside if not to windy. Choose a shape that you want your child to find and encourage them to look and then stand on it. Ask them to name the shapes that they are finding also. If you want to get creative then you could always make a spinner with your child and use that to determine which shape they should look for next.

*Sponge painting. You will need some paint and  if you have some shaped sponges you can use those, if not you cut some of your own out of old sponges or whatever you can find at home. Encourage your child to get creative and make a lovely collage of the different shapes they have. Ask your child to name the shapes that they are using.


There is a new whole school enquiry which is all about our home County and it is ‘What’s all the fuss about Cornwall?- Please join in!

 Phonics Phase 1- Environmental sounds

This week try the following activities:


* Identify the sound. Take a box (a shoe box, small toy box or anything you have a home). Find a few objects that make different sounds e.g. a crisp packet, a squeaky dog toy. Hiding the object from your child's view make the noise and ask them what they think it was. Talk about the object and then repeat with a different one.

* Sound Lotto. Make some cards and either print, stick or draw on items that make different sounds (you will need two of each). Turn them face down and take it in turns with your child to choose two cards and try to match up the sounds. Discuss with your child what sound cards they have selected and encourage them to recreate the sounds. Continue until all cards have been selected.

Maths

We are exploring shape, space and measure this week. Activities to try include:

*Shape Match (see picture) Take a large piece of paper and draw around some shaped bricks. If you don't have bricks then use what you have around the house. Once you have done this, ask your child to match the shapes up to the ones on the piece of paper. Encourage your child to identify and name the shapes as they carry the activity out.

*Natural shape collage. See what objects you can find in your garden or out on a walk. Collect them and then stick onto paper and make a collage. See if there are any clear identifiable shapes e.g. a round stone or some driftwood in the shape of a rectangle. Ask your child to talk about the items and the shapes they can see.


Staying Safe in the Sun
This half term the school will be discussing sun safety. With this in mind we would like to encourage you to go on a shade hunt. This could be in your garden or out and about on a walk. See what shady areas you can find and talk about why they are important on hot sunny days. Why not have a go at building a shaded area in the garden!

Please do send us your amazing work so that we can share it. Thank you

Hello everyone, 
We hope that you are all well and making the most of the weather (even if it has been a little colder in the mornings).

We have really enjoyed looking at the pictures of what you have all been doing and there are some lovely examples of your work (as pictured). It is wonderful to see some of the home learning activities been put into action with shapes monsters and peg numbers down to posters of sounds that you like and dislike. We particularly liked the result of Arnold's nature treasure hunt that he went on with his brother and sister. 

Keep up the good work and remember to please continue to find time to learn alongside your child and enjoy the opportunity to talk to them about their learning. 


Please do continue to share your creations with us, we love to see them.

 Phonics Phase 1- Environmental sounds/ Rhyming 

This week try the following activities:

* Listening walk. Go on a listening walk in your garden or when having your daily exercise. Encourage your child to listen to the different sounds and talk about what they can hear, what they think the noise is and what it sounds like. When you are at home, encourage your child to recall sounds that they heard when on their listening walk. You could always ask them draw a picture of these.

* Rhyming. Below is a sheet with some picture of things that rhyme. Ask your child to try and identify the matching rhyming pairs e.g frog, log. Ask them to think of other words that might rhyme (it doesn't matter if it doesn't sound like a real word, its good to play with sounds)

Maths

We are exploring number this week. Activities to try include:

*Number weave. (See picture) With some coloured paper, make some hoops (a bit like paper chains) and number them 1-10. Stick them to a large piece of card or whatever you can find at home. Give your child a piece of string or a shoelace and encourage them to thread through the numbers in the correct order asking them to say the numbers as they do it. To make it more difficult, you could always add some more numbers.

*Number hunt. Cut out some numbers from paper, card or whatever you have available. Hide them around the house or garden and ask your child to find them. Encourage them to say the names of the numbers as they find them.


Whole School Enquiry - please join in!

All classes in school are currently following the enquiry question 'What's all that Commotion in our Ocean?'. With this in mind, why not have a go at making an ocean in a bottle. You can use a plastic bottle or a jam jar. You will need some blue food colouring. If you have some sea creatures you can pop those inside otherwise you could always decorate the outside of your bottle with fish, seaweed etc. (See pictures attached for ideas)

 Phonics Phase 1- Instrumental sounds

This week try the following activities:

* Making drums. Use any available resources that you may have to create some drums. This could include pots, pans or even different sized boxes. Bang, tap and encourage your child to play and explore the sounds you make. Ask them to copy sounds that you make and then swap by asking them to create sounds for you to copy. You can try adjusting the speed and volume and discuss which your child prefers (loud, quiet, fast, slow).

*'If your happy and you know it' Sing the song 'if your happy and you know it' but introduce different sounds and words other than what you all know. 
For example, 'If your happy and you know it bang your drum', 'If your happy and you know it shake your shaker' or 'If your happy and you know it play the spoons'. Make it fun and encourage your child to talk bout their favorite part of the song and what instrument they had to play.


Maths

We are exploring shape, space and measure this week. Activities to try include:

*Shape collage. Cut out different shapes that are various colours and sizes from any paper or material that you have at home. Create a picture using these shapes (see example picture). Encourage your child to talk about the different shapes they use during the activity. You can also use this to learn and explore colours.

*Shape snacks. (See picture) Why not try and create a fun snack  for you and your child using shapes!. Encourage your child to join in the process by choosing what to make and asking them to suggest what items to use. Encourage your child to identify shapes in the foods they are using e.g. square crackers, oval grapes and cucumber circles. See what you can create!
