This week’s theme: Time and Sequencing

We have been learning about time, sequencing and seasons. Here are some tips to help your child with this theme at home:

  • practise saying ‘Good morning’ and ‘Good Night’ each morning and night.
  • talk about the differences between day and night.
  • discuss the time of day – morning, afternoon, evening, night.
  • use the words ‘first, then, next, after that, finally’ in conversation and when talking about past events – eg. when talking about your child’s day at school, birthday party etc.
  • Practise the phrases ‘What time is is?’ and ‘It is … o’clock’

This week the children are learning all about families. They are learning the words to describe their family members.

To help at home you could:

Talk about your family together. Help your child to answer the following questions:

  • How many people are in our family?
  • How many brothers do you have?I have … brothers. / I don’t have any brothers.
  • How many sisters do you have? I have … sisters. / I don’t have any sisters.

Talk about your child’s extended family – grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins.

Look at family photographs and name the different family members. eg. ‘He is my cousin.’ ‘She is my aunt.’
