Remote Learning page for website – Ducklings
Welcome to the ducklings webpage! We hope you find useful information regarding what your child is learning at school and how you can support them, as well as helping our lovely class to celebrate their achievements and successes! We are really proud of how all of the children have settled in so far and how hard they are all working to learn new things and make new friends.
If your child is self-isolating but otherwise well, here are some useful websites and learning activities for your child:
Below are some ideas to support your child with their Literacy learning:
- Can your child find and recognise any tricky words? We are currently working on recognising tricky words I, no, go, into, to, the. You could make cards with these words on and help your child to learn to recognise them.
- We have been learning to recognise letters /s/a/t/p/i/n/ by their phonic sound and also to segment and blend 2 and 3 letter words such as s-a-t…. sat and i-n… in. If your child can do this well, you could try writing these words together too.
- Please read a choice of story books from home and talk about how the characters are feeling and your child could also try to predict what happens next in the story.
- When reading story books, can you find any words that rhyme?
- You could practise writing your child’s first and surname with them.
- Your child could make cards for people in their family and try writing messages inside with your support.
There are some good online support and games for literacy learning on the Oak Academy website which can be found at classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-key-stage/early-years-foundation-stage in the Early Years section.
- You could practise counting forwards to 20 together and backwards from 10-0 together.
- You could practise recognising and ordering numbers from 0-10 together and make your child some cards with these numbers on. Can your child order these numbers correctly? If they can, ask your child to close their eyes and remove 1 or 2 of the cards. Do they know which numerals you have taken away?
- You could help your child to find different shapes around your home and name them.
- Help your child to collect and count different objects around the house to the value of 10. Please encourage your child to count these objects correctly by putting your finger on the object and saying the number name at the same time.
There are some good online support and games for maths learning at www.topmarks.co.uk in the Early Years section.
Understanding the World
- In class we have been talking about objects that float and sink. Can your child find things around the house to test if they float or sink in the kitchen/bathroom sink or in your bath and talk about what they have found out?
There are some good online support and games for Understanding the World learning on the Oak Academy website which can be found at classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-key-stage/early-years-foundation-stage in the Early Years section.
Art and music
- Does your child have a favourite song? Talk about the songs you like and the song your child likes and play them to each other.
- You could try to learn the words to a new song together.
- Could your child use different materials (pens, paints, junk modelling, playdough – whatever you have in your house!) to build something beautiful? Ask your child to talk to you about how they made their creation or picture, what they like most about it and what they would change next time.
There are some good online support and games for music learning on the Oak Academy website which can be found at classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-key-stage/early-years-foundation-stage in the Early Years section.
