Pre-cursive letter formation

At Intake Farm we use cursive writing. We start in the Foundation Stage, using pre-cursive letter formation. This helps children to start all letters from the line and prepares children for joining letters later on.

 

Please use the rhymes on the document to help your child to practise forming letters correctly. 

Remember tricky words are words that we cannot sound out, we have to learn to recognise them by sight!

Previous weeks' home learning 

Friday 22nd January

Remember to upload pictures, of what you have been doing, to Tapestry! We cannot wait to see what you have been up to! 

(Please activate your Tapestry account if you have not done so already!)

 

Maths

Warm up

Practise following instructions involving positional language, putting your teddy in different places 

e.g. put it on your head, behind your back, under your leg, in between your feet.

 

Extend to Grandma says (Simon says) if more challenge is needed - children only do the instructions that Grandma says. If you do not say "Grandma says..." they don't do it.

 

Activity

Can you out out the journey you drew on your map yesterday? Can you give instructions to guide your grown up through it?

 

Look closely at the picture of the woodland animals that Little Red Riding Hood saw on her journey through the forest. Can you talk about the animals and where they are? Can you use positional language (on, in, under, on top of, next to, beside, above, below, in front, behind...)?

 

 

Follow-up Challenge:
Can you make an obstacle course in your house or garden, for your family?

Can you guide them through it, telling them if they need to go on, in, under, over, through, around...?
