This week we will be focusing on the children’s counting skills. Today we are going to be singing some counting rhymes and using matching resources to challenge our older children by asking them to order numerals 1-5 (Area of Learning: Joins in with singing favourite songs/recognises numerals 1-5 from Mathematics).



We are going to be using a number puzzle to help support the children with counting from 1 - 20. Can they count the objects in the pictures? Can they match each picture to the correct numeral? (Area of Learning: experiments with symbols and marks representing ideas of number/counts objects to 10 and beyond from Mathematics).

Wednesday pm: 

Outdoor play plus: use the Hopscotch mats to practise counting backwards from 10.



Today we will be using the playdough to make five current buns which will then beused to sing “Five Currant Buns”. We will also use them to challenge our older children to make all the number bonds to 5 (Area of Learning: selects a small number of objects from a group/separates a group of objects in different ways recognising the total is the same from Mathematics).

Thursday pm: 

Outdoor play plus: Letters & Sounds: Rhyme (“Silly Soup” game)



Lots of opportunities today to practice reciting numbers 1 to 10 and recognising the corresponding numerals while working together to create a Hopscotch grid using numbered mats. And, of course, enjoying a few games of Hopscotch! (Area of Learning: Recites some number names in sequence/Uses some number names accurately in play from Mathematics).

Every year we ask our parents for feedback on a variety of measures, including communication. In line with our feedback from last academic year, we're endeavouring to improve the transparency between home and playgroup so that you can keep track of your child's learning and sensory experiences.

Each week we now make our playgroup planning available to parents and carers. As well as receiving an email notification, the information is updated on the website, the FaceBook page, and our secret group for current parents and carers. We hope this will help you to enrich your child's learning at home!
