Happy Home Learning

This week we have been learning about shapes. Can you find something in your house that is a square shape, a rectangle shape and a circle shape? Please help your child to discuss the properties of the shape (E.g. A square has 4 corners and 4 sides that are all the same length). We have also been learning a shape song can your child sing the song to you?

FS2 Homework

Literacy – This week in literacy we have been reading the book 'Shark in the Park'. We have been talking about the structure of a story and how every story has a beginning, middle and end. When you are reading stories with your child can you talk about the beginning, middle and end of each and discuss the characters. We will also be checking our tricky words next week so please practise reading and writing them.  

Numeracy – This week in maths we have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes. We have been talking about the properties of these shapes and relating them to real objects. Can you have a look around your home to find and 3D shapes?
