Supporting Your Child

Over the year, we will be giving you ideas of things to share with your child at home.  This might be a recipe, a game or a fun activity.

---------------

Picture books

Pictures books are excellent for all ages as they build on key reading skills such as inference.  Do not be afraid of using picture books to improve reading skills and language skills.

'Making inferences in reading is a crucial skill that must be mastered for a reader to have real comprehension. Making inferences involves reading the text and recalling prior experiences that are similar to what you are reading. Then, you use context clues from the text to draw a logical conclusion about what might happen next.'

Movement patterns

In maths, we have be having a go at verbal patterns.  We have been chanting and dancing as we say different patterns strings.  This was inspired by a Year 2 lesson in Miss. Austins class.  Our favourite has to be Banana Banana Meatball.

One of our main books we use in the nursery is term 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' by Michael Rosen.  Our aim is to teach the story to the child in such a way that they can retell it independently.  You can use this video of Michael Rosen to learn the story at home.
