EYFS (Nursery and Reception)

Friday 24th April – Day 15

Can you draw a picture of someone special to you. It could be a family member or one of your friends. Tell your parent why this person is special to you and then can write what you have said below your picture. You could also try writing some words or a sentence about what you like about the person you have drawn. 

NURSERY

Play a listening game by clicking on the link below. Parents, turn the screen away so that your child cannot see the answer. Hit pause after you have heard the sound so that your child has some time to think about the sound and then guess what it could be. Once your child has guessed, press play again and show the picture to reveal the answer! 

RECEPTION

This week you have been practicing recognising and ordering numbers 1-20 with the help of our number stories. Have a go at the flower game to test your skills! You can use the template below, or if you don’t have a printer, you can create your own by drawing some circles for the flower petals and then writing numbers on them! See the instructions below: 

Flower Game Rules

Each player has a flower, all players have the same numbers on their flower but on different petals so they cannot copy their opponents! The Quiz Master calls out a number, the first player to touch the number gets a point!

General Activities

  • Each day, please practice writing your name or first letter in your name.
  • Read a book together with your family.
  • Please upload photos and videos to Tapestry of the fantastic learning you are doing at home for us to see!

Parents: The following link on our website shows parents how to pronounce the correct sound for each letter. https://www.heronsgate.greenwich.sch.uk/learning/curriculum/

Thursday 23rd April – Day 14

This term, we read the story of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” which the children really enjoyed. Watch the video below of the story “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.”

 The following link will take you to a very catchy song about how the caterpillar grows and develop into a butterfly. Both you and your child might enjoy singing and dancing to the very lively tune.

NURSERY 

Can you draw a picture of the caterpillar and some of the food that he ate? Retell the story in your own words to your adult.

RECEPTION

Draw a picture about what the hungry caterpillar eats each day. Can you write a word or a sentence to describe what he eats? 

Count how many different types of food the hungry caterpillar eats

Wednesday 22nd April – Day 13

What nursery rhymes do you know? Can you teach a family member one of the songs?

Does your song have any actions? Film your song and upload it to Tapestry for us to see

Look at the number characters 11-20 which we have been learning about in school. Tell your adult about each of the number characters and try writing the number in the sky or on the back of your hand.

RECEPTION

Use the number characters to help you create your own number flash cards for the numbers 11-20, writing only one number on each card. Can you draw the correct number of circles on each card to match to the numeral? Shuffle your number cards up and then help put them back in order from 11-20. Can you try putting the cards in descending order from 20-11? Maybe you could add them to your other number cards from Monday to order the numbers from 0-20!
