Remote Learning September 2021
Should you find yourself isolating due to COVID19, please find below ideas that can be used. Previously we have used Microsoft TEAMS and we will make contact with you where appropriate with access arrangements.
We have been working on Phase 1 for pre-reading and phonics before beginning formal teaching of Read, Write, Inc. Below you will find some activities that we have used in school to help us to get ready for listening that you can access either online or more practically.
Make a sound with something from your home, such as and egg timer or musical toy. Ask your child to close their eyes whilst you hide the item that is making a sound. Challenge your child to find it as soon as possible. Go around your home with your child and collect a box of items that make a sound when you move them. This could be a bunch of keys, a jar or rice, a packet of crisps, a squeaky pet toy. Once your child has seen has seen all of the sound makers and had the chance to create the sounds, ask them to make a sound whilst you close your eyes. You have to describe what you can hear and guess which item made the sound. Once your child has understood the game you can change roles.
Make some simple shakers by pouring a small amount of rice or pasta into a milk carton/other recyclable. Have fun making noises with instruments and dancing! If you make some sounds with an instrument, ask your child to copy you.
Make stories even more exciting by using the instruments with a story. For example when the Billy Goat is crossing the bridge, tap 2 building blocks together as you say the words ‘trip trap trip trap.’ Shake household keys as the fairy in the story waves her wand.
Read stories with rhyming words in them saying the rhyming words clearly so that your child has chance to hear the words sounding similar. Encourage your child to join in with repetitive phrases.
Run, run, as fast as you can,
You can’t catch me,
I’m the Gingerbread Man.
We have been thinking about the season of Autumn and Seasonal changes that go with it. Here are some activities that can be done at home. (Where it suggests a walk, you could go out in the garden to see what can be found!)
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
