Wednesday 20th May
How are you all this morning? I hope you have been enjoying the story of Farmer Duck. It actually links really well with being mindful about self-care and mental wellbeing. I have been adding items into the sections at the bottom of the Nursery Page; Covid Child Friendly Explanation, Mind Friendly Stuff, do check them out.
Communication and Language Development;
Brilliant song exploring spatial language on a Farm Theme for you here I have uploaded some other songs and rhymes for you to learn this week in today’s section.
Literacy: Re-tell the story of Farmer Duck using the sequencing cards and maybe lay them out in a story map on the floor so you can ‘walk’ the story. You can draw and write out in a story map on a large piece of paper too, or lay out your small world toys. I have included a Story Map blank worksheet in today’s section.
Mathematics; Use the Farmer Duck size ordering worksheet in today’s Home Learning section. Maybe do a Shape Spot on today’s walk, take pictures of the shapes you find? Do not forget to check out White Rose Maths for Early Years.
Story time; I absolutely love this story The Selfish Giant from Oscar Wilde, a classic. Last week we shared The Smartest Giant in Town, how does that compare with this one?
Physical Development: all you need is to subscribe to the Go Noodle channel if you have not already! This is a goodie Boom Chicka Boom
Reflection: How did you feel today? Use your EMOJI STONES to check in and think about how you feel before and after doing and activity. Do some Mindful Colouring today; I have added some animal ones, have you seen the lovely Roald Dahl quote ones in Mind Friendly Info section? Also check out the 40 acts of kindness you can do at home.
I have only just discovered Thank you Baked Potato by Matt Lucas, but I already cannot stop singing it or checking out his latest duet on Twitter! Please enjoy if you have not already discovered it and I am sorry if it is stuck in your head too!
Have a lovely day, it feels like it is going to be hot, wear a hat , drink lots and don’t forget to water your plants!
