Good Morning Nursery!

 

We hope you enjoyed the work last week

 

This week we will be looking at the story "Titch" by Pat Hutchinson

 

Listen to the story:

Titch by Pat Hutchins

Key questions to share:

 

How many people are in Titch’s family?

Why does Titch ride a little tricycle while his brother and sister have big bikes?

How do you think Titch feels about this?

Do you think it is fair that Titch only has a pin wheel while they have big kites?

 

 

Here are some more stories about growing:

Can you order the picture cards and retell the story in your own words? Maybe you could re-tell it to your mum/dad/ sibling?

Look at the plant that Titch grew.

With your child look at some plants you may have at home or outside. Discuss with your child the parts of the plant and their roles.

Can they name any parts of a plant? Ask them to describe the parts of the plant using full sentences, “The plant has long green leaves”.

Ask your child to draw a picture of a plant, don’t forget to add labels!

Can you remember when you were a baby?

What do you look like now? How has your face changed? Have a go at drawing a selfie! Look in a mirror and look really carefully at your features.

Phonics

 

This week we will be continuing to introduce the children to early phonics - letter sounds. 

 

In Nursery we use the Jolly Phonics rhymes and actions to help the children to remember each sound. We will introduce two sounds each week.
