May 2021

 

For those of you who are starting school this September, I have put together a short presentation about our Learning activities including the 'Rainbow Challenges' that are a key part of our learning in Class 1. These motivate the children in working as independently as possible on engaging, achievable yet challenging, often open-ended, activities that allow them to access the whole curriculum and apply their developing skills and knowledge.

 

 

Class 1 Learning & Challenges

Our outdoor construction area.

This is the place for learning about shape and space, for using your imagination and for communicating with friends. You will have opportunities to develop your physical skills and strength, your storytelling and teamwork skills and to apply your reading and writing skills in play based activities.

One of our class tidy up songs; try it at home!

I have signed up for a fantastic musical resource - Boogie Mites - which you will be able to enjoy with your child between now and September. Even if your child is able to have some sessions in nursery the video workshops and songs will give your child the experiences to develop their phonological awareness-also referred to as 'Phase One' of 'Letters and Sounds'-which will mean they will be raring to go when they come to school.

I will introduce the seven aspects of Phase One over the next few weeks; with audio files for songs to help develop these.

To begin with; here are the documents you will need and a link to the first introduction video workshop which explains all about the different aspects of the Phase One pre-reading skills.

Introduction to Boogie Mites video workshops/Phase One of Letters and Sounds

The first 2 songs; - 'Do Ray Me' and 'Choo Choo'; both these songs support aspect 1; Tuning in to environmental sounds. You can do this every day at home (kettles boiling; phone's ringing) and out on walks (birdsong; machines at work). You could even make a Lotto type game with photos and recorded sounds. Have fun with your great listening ears! 

Paper bags, plastic bottles and tin cans ready? Do Ray Me the ecology song

Which is your favourite recycling sound?

Choo choo choo.....and other travelling sounds!

Can you make up another verse?

Come on everyone and play with initial sounds; these songs develop an ear for alliteration; to recognize, repeat and invent  several words with the same initial sound.  

The first sound of a word or the sound that a word starts with can either be a 'stretchy sound' or a 'bouncy sound'. Perhaps you could make up other verses of this song using 'stretchy sounds', like mmmmmmmmmmmmmm or zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz; and 'bouncy sounds' like  d-d-d-d-d-d  or  b-b-b-b-b-b ?

Alliteration ssssssssssssssssssssssss

sssssssssssss is a stretchy sound

Alliteration a a a a

Alliteration t t t t t

t t t is a bouncy sound

Alliteration p p p p p p

p p p is a bouncy sound

Alliteration i i i i i

i i i is a bouncy sound

Alliteration nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

nnnnnnnnnnnnnnn is a stretchy sound

I hope you are enjoying the 'Boogie Mites' songs. It's time to get creative and make your own shaker; I wonder how you will do it? Here are some pictures to give you some ideas.

Have you made some rhythm sticks?

These songs will get you making music; 'Shakey, shakey' and 'Bangedy, bang bang'- I want to hear you from our classroom on Corse Lawn!
