Today, we would like you to head over to Edinburgh Zoo to find a different animal than last time. Also, Mrs Kendall would like to know why the penguins stick their wings (flippers) out when they walk. Can you find out why and comment on the blog?
Today's name challenge for literacy
Nursery, today’s task is to think about your name. Can you find items in your house that start with the sound at the start of your name? So my name is Mrs Subachus, I can find scissors, soap, salt and sauce.
What can you find?
Count to 10
Start at 2 stop at 8
Start at 3 stop at 9
Start at 4 stop at 10
Can you count backwards? 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
You should practice counting forwards and backwards every day. You can use your fingers to help you.
Why don’t you try and make numeral cards to 5.
You can then practise putting them in order from 1 to 5.
Have a look at mine.
What you’ll need:
I’ve used an old lasagne box. Cut them out into rectangles. You may need to ask for help here.
Look at my box. Can you notice any numerals? What numerals do you recognise?
Once you’ve learnt how to order from 1-5, you can keep adding the next numeral until you reach 10!
Hmmmm. What comes after 5?
