Week 5/ 18.5.2020

Hello boys and girls!

It's time again for some home learning activities.

Good luck!

Mrs Robinson

 

General Ideas - Talk about the 'day of the week', discuss the 'daily weather' and outline the 'daily routine'.

Reminder - It is very important for children to talk about or recall what they've done during their play time at home.  Further prompts such as "Tell me about your model" help to develop their thinking skills.
