Foundation Stage

Remote Learning

Infant and Nursery School
Welcome to the Summer Term
 
If you are learning at home for any reason, and feel well, look below where you will see some ideas and activities to try.
 
If you are quarantining or self-isolating we hope that you will be able to get stuck into phonics and reading, writing, number, understanding the world and some physical activity as well as all of the other things you do at school. Just click on the blue links or the attachments and try your best!
 
Keep up with your learning and we all look forward to you being back at school soon.

Phonics
 
Please use the links below or use your personal 'Education City' login to continue your learning at home. 
 
Please play lots of Phase 4 blending and tricky word games.
 Mathematics
 
Many of the plants we grew last term are growing fast.  In school we will be focusing on measure, using some of the plants to help us.  Please take part in the lessons below to support your learning in this area at home.
 Literacy
 
The text that will be supporting our learning in school is 'Somebody Swallowed Stanley'.  You can listen to somebody telling you this story by following the link.  Talk to your grown-up about what you liked and disliked about the story.
 
Perhaps you could draw and write about one new thing that happened to Stanley from your imagination.  Remember it's always a good idea to talk about your ideas with somebody first.
Understanding the World
 
Our project for this half term is called 'Save Our Seas!'.  To start it off we will be sharing all that we already know about the under world on our planet.  Maybe you could draw and write some different facts that you know about the wildlife that lives in our seas.  You could choose your favourite sealife animal and make a book about it.
Reading 
 
Enjoy sharing stories together each day. Please remember to ask you child questions to check their understanding of a text.
 
Find the links for online reading resources below and select a book at your child's book band level, which will be red (beginning to read sentences) or yellow (developing fluency). Do email your child's teacher if you need advice.
Share a story
 
Why don't you snuggle up with a grown up and listen to this story read by ine of the FS teachers.
Physical Development
 
While you are at home it is important to stay active and keep moving.  Below are some links to help you do just that.  
Mindfulness 
 
Texture Bag
 
Put a selection of objects with different shapes and textures into a bag. Get the children to take turns putting their hands in, feeling one of the objects and describing it to the others (without looking at it) in as much detail as possible.
Expressive Art & Design
 
Create your own underwater art.  It could be a drawing, a model or some natrual art using water. It could be something bigger!  Perhaps you have some bed sheets or towels that you caould use to make a watery world at home...
