Our text for the week is We're Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury.
If you have the text at home enjoy reading it with your child encouraging them to participate with the repetitive refrains. If you do not have the story please follow the link below.
Discuss with your child the various settings that the family encounter and draw these images on a large piece of paper. Using small world people, encourage your child to retell the story using the story map to help your child act it out with the characters.
Could you create a new story using different settings and characters; We're going on a Dinosaur Hunt, We're Going on a Lion Hunt etc. using the play equipment you have? Again draw these images on a large piece of paper. Using the small world toys, encourage your child to retell the story using the story map to help your child act it out. Why not video the story and post it on Tapestry so your child can share their learning with their friends on their return to school.
In Mathematics we will be counting and recording using our own pictures to represent how many teddies are in a set. Can you practise counting from 0-10. Can you hide teddies in the room for your children to find and count how many they have found? Can they draw images of the bears to represent how many they found. Take the game outdoors and into other rooms to keep the children interested. Alter the bears used too.
We will count how many jumps, claps and turns we do then see if the children can do the same. We will extend the games by tapping an instrument and identifying how many times the instrument has been played.
