EYFS Remote Learning W/B 8th February 2021

Week Beginning 8th February 2021
A huge to well done to everyone who completed the counting in 2s challenge. We added lots of virtual learning medals to observations this weekend! You can add your video to Tapestry this week if you are still practising your counting pattern.  We were very impressed by the sandwich recipes we have seen and we are looking forward to reading the recipe work in pink books when they are dropped into school. 
This week you have a maths, a phonics and a literacy activity to complete each day. There are more videos to help you - look for the links in the planning documents. Our themed learning challenges are all about Chinese and Lunar New Year, we hope you have fun finding out about a festival that is very important to many people all around the world.
You can watch whole school assemblies from Miss Bassett and Mr Henson here.
You can listen to the Foundation Stage adults read a story on the Story Time page. You could watch one when you have a snack, just like we do at school!
Parents and Carers, please remember to upload at least one maths, phonics or literacy observation each week. We have had some questions about how to support children with blending words for reading so we have put together a document with activities and some resources which can be found on our Phonics page. We hope you find them useful. If you have any other questions about the learning or you need support with the resources, contact us at foundation@elystjohns.cambs.sch.uk or leave a message on Tapestry.

In Literacy this week we are going to be continuing our work on instructions. For Monday's activity you will need the word cards in the document below - these can be printed or copied. If you would like to make a dragon but don't have the resources at home, please let us know and we can share some from school.
We expect that Wednesday's writing activity will take 2 sessions to complete so there is not a teaching video for Thursday. There is also an extra phonics activity below for anyone who finishes quickly and wants an extra challenge. On Friday, we would like you to finish the week by looking at the new Guided Reading activity that is uploaded for you on Tapestry.
Parents and Carers - if your child finds Wednesday's activity very challenging, please scribe their ideas for them and use the extra challenge below (Chinese Zodiac missing sounds activity) as their written activity.
