Week Beginning 14Th March 2022

Date: 13th Mar 2022 @ 3:47pm

    Focus Book: Farmer Duck by Martin Waddell    

 

Communication and Language

We will be continuing our work on prepositions putting a toy in front, behind on top etc. During our small group session. Talking and listening to each other carefully.

Focus and concentrate, retain information- recap at the end of each focus group activity- what have we learnt today and previously. 

Personal and Social Education

Self-Regulation- Concentrate at group times, not playing with shoes, encourage the children and explain what patience is and why we need to have it. (teachers to do little role play activity illustrating what being patient means.)

Executive function -encouraging the children to really focus their attention, think flexibly and beginning to retain information in their mind- about farm animals or maths activities that we are doing over the week.

Express our feelings and interests

Know how to care for others and living things- talking about how the farmer should have looked after the farm animals.

Did he care for the farm animals? Who did all the work? How did the duck feel? What did the other animals do to help? Asking the children questions, will help the children to process and articulate their feelings.

 

Physical Development

Gross motor development- negotiating space both inside and outside. Using the steps and climbing wall using alternate feet. Playing games in PE, where we hop, walk on our tip-toes, star stretches, jump, climb. We will also play ball games and hoop games, taking turns and supporting our friends.

Fine Motor- encouraging the children to mark make and start to write letters from the name. Draw and paint pictures using a variety of mark making media.

Encouraging the children to take off and put on their own coats on.

Literacy- Focus Book “Farmer Duck”

Start to develop the 5 key concepts of print

Print has meaning

We read English from left to right, from top to bottom.

Name the different parts of the book. –Focus on title, book cover front & back

revisit/recap every day.

Use the pointer when reading to the class, so that the children are seeing the one-one correspondence.

Monday what could the book be about- look at the front cover, what animals can we see- start to read until the duck put the hens in the bed.

We will also be making a class story map about Farmer Duck- what happened in the beginning, middle and the end.

 

 Mathematics

We will continue to prepositional language-and we will also name and identify 2D shapes.

Children will handle and start to talk about the simple properties of 2D shape

Begins to recite numbers to 5 in the correct order. Using one-one principle, stable –order principle, and the cardinal principle

Understand position through words alone- the teddy is on the chair, under the table with no pointing

 

Understanding of the world

Talk about differences between materials and changes that they notice- floating and sinking- plastic ducks and boats float, pebbles sink why? Questioning and encouraging the children reason why some items float and others will sink.

Natural World- what farm animals do for us and how they are cared for.

 Talk about what they see, continuing to use a wider vocabulary – buds on trees

Begin to understand the need to respect and care for the natural environment- flowers in Nursery

 

Expressive Arts and Design

We are going to be weaving a piece of art work using scrim and use colours and natural materials that relate to farms.

Begin to remember and sing entire songs. Charanga, nursery rhymes

Begin to sing the pitch of a tone sung by another person (‘pitch match’).

Take part in simple pretend play and begin to use farmer duck story in role play- towards the end of the week ▪

▪ Begin to make imaginative and complex ‘small worlds’
