What are we learning this term? Term 2

Main experience

What do you want to be when you grow up? - in this Understanding the World and Communication and Language experience, we are discovering and exploring different professions. We are also discovering the concept of 'growing' and the different stages in our lives. 

 

Discreet experiences

Phonics - we are continuing on with Phonics phase 1. We are discovering rhyming, alliteration and syllables by counting them. 

Maths - we are working with size differentiation - big, small, long, short, tall, short and medium size - and size comparison - bigger, smaller, longer, shorter, taller. 

 

How can I support at home?

Encourage listening skills. Ask open-ended questions. Model language and behaviour. Promote independence - putting their shoes on, brushing their teeth, using cutlery. 

Highlight rhyming words. Try to find words that rhyme within stories. Explain that there are some words that begin with the same sounds. Try to find words that begin with the same sounds when talking or telling stories.

Explore size comparison at home. Ask them which one is bigger or smaller. Use size vocabulary.

 

Pictures

We learnt that our teachers were also babies and children a little while ago.
We compared our current pictures with the ones when we were babies.
We learnt about our favourite professions and role-played.
In our outcome, we recorded a video answering the question 'What do we want to be when we grow up?' using effective communication.
