I hope you are ok and managing to stay well. Here is the update for today with some suggestions for home learning, but as always, they are only suggestions. Try to complete them if you can, but I am well aware that trying to shop and look after the family in this current situation is very difficult.
I will be in school today supporting the children of key workers, but as always I can be contacted on class dojo and at EYFS@theatlasfederation.co.uk.

Play a game of I-spy. Encourage the children to name different objects and then practice playing I spy with the sound. E.g. I spy something beginning with the sound ‘a’? This is a great game the encourage children to hear the first sound in words.
Play number bingo by writing down the numbers on a piece of paper to make a board. Ask one family member to be the bingo caller and whoever has all of the numbers they may shout bingo.
We play this game at school and it is very popular!
