EYFS Oak Class

Welcome to the Oak Class Home Learning Page!

To ensure children do not fall behind their peers, home learning will match class activities. 

Please find work posted here daily (whilst there are any children isolating). 

 

Monday 23rd November

Please see emails for today's phonics session.

 

Topic

This week we are going to be looking at the last story of our 'Once Upon a Time' topic - The Gingerbread Man. Share the story (story powerpoint in files section) and listen carefully for any speacial story language that we have been talking about; phrases like 'once upon a time' and 'one day'. We have also seen lots of repeated phrases over the last few weeks, do you remember what the Big Bad Wolf said each time he got to one of the houses? See if you can tell a grown up what the Gingerbread Man says over and over again in this story.

If you'd like a challenge, you could have a go at writing the repeated phrase with some help from your grown up. You could use your Fred Talking to help you to write words like 'run' and 'can'. There is some special Gingerbread Man paper in the files section that you might like to print out and use.

 

Maths

This week during our maths sessions, we will be focusing on 'one more' and 'one less'. Have a look at the Gingerbread Man one more & one less Powerpoint and work through it with your grown up - see how many questions you can get right! You might want to use some objects to help you to work out the answers.

You will need some pennies/coins for the next activity.

Grown ups - Speak the song ‘Five Currant Buns’.  Each time, ask your child to buy a bun. Ask them the following questions;

How many buns are left?  How many coins do we now have?  Support them to see that the currant buns are going down but the pennies are going up.

Topic

Today we are going to create a 'role on the wall' character. Grown ups - draw a simple outline of Goldilocks, big enough to write words in and around the outside. 

Talk to your child about what Goldilocks looks like e.g. blonde hair, dress etc. Write these words on the outside of the drawing to represent her appearance.

The inside of the drawing will represent how she feels - choose a part of the story to talk about e.g. when the Three Bears came home. How might Goldilocks be feeling now? e.g. scared, shocked. Try and introduce some new vocabularly and write the words together.

 

Maths

Watch Numberblocks Stampolines (different arrangements of 5).

Today we will be talking about how objects can be arranged in different ways. Gather different amounts of objects e.g. 2 teddies, 3 cups, 4 figures, 5 pencils. Ask your child to count out a number of objects, then close their eyes while you rearrange. Ask them if there are still the same amount, encourage them to count again to check. Take turns to try this with different amounts.

Topic

Continuing with our Goldilocks and The Three Bears theme, talk to your child about what they eat for breakfast and why it is important to eat a healthy breakfast at the start of the day. Explain that porridge is a healthy breakfast food as it is filling and is a low sugar option. What would be an unhealthy option?

Can they draw what they like to eat for breakfast? See if they are able to remember any initial sounds (p for porridge, t for toast). You could help them to label their picture or write a simple caption together e.g. I like porridge.

 

Maths

Watch Numberblocks Number 5
https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08d630h/numberblocks-series-1-five

After watching the video, see if your child can count out 5 items from a bigger pile. Just like yesterday, see if they can arrange the items in different ways. Ask them the following questions;

-How many different ways can you arrange the items?

-Are there still 5 items if you arrange them in different ways? Show me.

-How many will you have if you add one more?

-How many will you have if you took one away?

Topic

Continuing with our 'Once Upon a Time' topic, read or tell the story Goldilocks and the Three Bears. (ebook in files section). Encourage your child to join in with repeated refrains, such as 'Who's been eating my porridge?' and 'Who's been sitting on my chair?' After reading the story, discuss the order of the events and how the different characters reacted during the story.

You might want to think about the following questions;
  • Why did the bears decide to go for a walk before breakfast?
  • Why did Goldilocks go into the bears' house?
  • Did Goldilocks make good choices throughout the story?
  • What do you think her mum said to her when she got home?
  • Do you think there are goodies and baddies in the story?
  • What would you say to Baby Bear when he is crying?
  • How do you think Daddy Bear feels during the story?
  • What should Goldilocks have done at the end of the story?

 

Maths

This week we will be focusing on numbers 4 and 5.

Watch Numberblocks Number 4
https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08d61cv/numberblocks-series-1-four

 

Find a selection of objects - these could be teddies, pieces of lego, dolls etc. Can you carefully count out objects? Talk to your child about the final number that they say being the total amount of objects that there is. e.g. "1,2,3,4, there are 4 teddies altogether".

How many different ways can you arrange the 4 objects? You could put them in a row, in a shape etc. Do you still have the same amount each time? Talk to your child about how the total amount of objects stays the same, whichever way they are arranged (just like in the Numberblocks video)

Topic

Recall our story map so far.  

What happens to the baddie at the end of the three little pigs?  

What can happen to our baddie?  Discuss with your grown up and add an ending to our story map.  Can you use the story map to retell the whole story?

 

Maths

Play hide and seek!

Practise using your positional language to play the game - before you hide, give your grown up some clues about where you're going to go. You might say "I'm going next to something in the living room". I'm going into..."

See if your grown up can find you! Perhaps they could have a turn too!

 

 

Thursday 12th November 

Good Morning! Here are your home learning activities for today;

Topic

Today, have a go at recalling your story map so far. You can look at the ebook (in files) if you need a bit of a reminder. 

Today we are going to think about how the 'baddie' destroys two of the houses.  Instead of blowing them down what can he/she do? Could they knock them down? What could they knock them down with?

Talk about what could happen with your grown up and add it to your story map.

 

Maths

Watch Cockatoos by Quentin Blake https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6UGlCkZTKk 

You will need a teddy/toy for the next part;

At each page that the cockatoos are missing, pause the video and ask your child to tell you where the cockatoos are using positional language. Next, ask them to go and put a toy in the same position somewhere in the classroom eg. behind something. Go and find the toy, using the information that they have eg. behind something. Swap over and see if they can follow your positional language to find the toy.

Topic

Yesterday we changed the characters in the story and today we need to change the materials the characters use to build their houses. We need one strong material, one weak material and one that is in the middle. Think about the materials you are going to build the houses out of and add them to your story map!

Have a look at the photos in the files section for some ideas about different materials you could use.

 

Maths

Read or watch 

Each Peach Pear Plum

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oyt50ZoM3G8

Hide small world figures/other toys around the room in a range of positions eg. on top of something, underneath something etc.  Ask your child to talk to you about places where they think they might be hidden.  Encourage positional language.  Now ask them to go and find the toys.  As they are finding them ask where they were found, encouraging and modelling positional language as necessary.

Topic

Can you remember which traditional tale are we looking at this week?

That's right, The Three Little Pigs!

English | The Three Little Pigs | WorldStories

Talk to a grown up or family member about what a ‘character’ is and name the characters in the story. You could ask your grown up to write the word ‘characters’ at the top of a piece of paper and help you to write down who is in the story. Try using your phonics to have a go at writing the word 'pigs'. You could draw a picture instead and have a go at writing the first sound that you hear, so 'p' for pig and 'w' for wolf.

Who were the good characters and bad characters in this story?  

What did they do that was good/bad?

 

Let's start our own version of The Three Little Pigs.  Recall who the characters in the fairy tale are. Who could the good and bad characters in our story be?  (what animals could you use?)

Draw these characters at the beginning of a story map

 

 

Maths

Today we are continuing to learn about positional language. For this activity, you will need something to draw on. 

Grown ups - give instructions for children to draw a scene from The Three Little Pigs using positional language, such as draw 3 houses in the middle of the board, draw a chimney on one house, draw a path in between the houses, draw two trees next to one of the houses, draw a sun above the house in the middle, draw some grass underneath the houses etc. Next, children can have a turn at using positional language to descibe a picture and grown ups can have a go at drawing!

 

Monday 9th November

Morning all! 

We hope you have had a nice weekend. Please find below some home learning activities. We will email you a link for a phonics session, unfortunately due to copyright restrictions we can't post these directly on our website. 

Remember you can add photos of what you have been doing to tapestry. Please email your class teacher if you need help accessing your tapestry account. 

Maths 

This week we are learning about positional language and how to describe a position or how to place an object in a correct position. 

Starter- Play Simon Says https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYXfUGz5-kg

Main - Today we are going to try and use some positional language. Watch this video to remind you about some of the positional language we have used before. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idJYhjGyWTU

Can you make an obstacle course and describe to someone how to complete the course using some of the words from the video. This is Mrs Benson’s idea:

Start by standing next to the chair, walk around the cushion, then pick it up and put it on your head, walk around the room without the cushion falling off your head. 

 

Topic

Last week we started our new topic ‘Once Upon a Time’ which is all based on traditional tales. This week we are going to focus on the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’. You can listen to the story in the files section of the page. 

Can you tell someone what happened in the beginning, middle and the end of the story? You can listen to the story again to help you. Can you draw a picture to show what happens in the beginning, middle and end of the story?

Can you talk to your grown up about the properties of a triangle? How many sides does it have? How many corners? Do the sides always have to be the same length? Perhaps you could use things in your house to draw different triangles - some small, some big, some with different length sides. 

 

Topic

 

 

What is our new topic called? Can you name a traditional tale? 

Let's hear a story with lots of characters from different traditional tales. We will see how many we can name at the end.

This week we are looking at circles and triangles

Look at the ‘Circle and Triangle to the Rescue’ Powerpoint.

 

See if you can describe both shapes - can you use words like corners or sides? See if you can make the shapes using objects in the house e.g. you could use pencils to create a triangle or string to create a circle.


 

Topic 

Goodies and Baddies 

Can you remember some of the characters we met in the Cinderella pantomime? Which were the good characters? What made them good? What about the baddies? Why are they bad? Put them under each heading on a table Goodies/Baddies (you can ask a grown up to write these words with you). Can you add any other characters from other traditional tales to the table? (use pictures from yesterday if the need ideas) 

 

Watch the story below- the goodies and baddies have been mixed up!
