Activity 1- My phonics
Week 2 – My communication
1. Follow the YouTube link below that will take you to today’s phonics video! The sound focus for today is the ‘e’ phoneme. In your home pack there is a phonics parent support sheet. This will help you with the action and rhyme that goes with the ‘e’ phoneme.
2. After, using the ‘find the sound’ sheet in your resource pack support your child to circle all the things on the sheet that begin with the ‘e’ phoneme.
3. Practice forming the ‘e’ phoneme on the formation sheet. Or you can do this on paper, in flour, sand or rice. Some children may prefer to practise formation on a whiteboard with a pen if you have one

Story time with Liss: Listen to Liss read Rosa story from Bolivia
Starter: Read the pages about music and instruments from the book ‘Welcome to our world’ to your child. Explore all the beautiful pictures together! PDF pages are available below.
Listen/learn different children songs from around the world
Rosa in the story lived in Bolivia. Bolivia is a country in South America. Another country in South America is Brazil. Today you are going to create a Samba Band in your house! Samba music originates from Brazil. Watch and dance around to this samba band on Youtube.
Parents be prepared to pull out all the pots and pans out the cupboard and for things to get noisy!
Support your child exploring and experimenting making different noises. Try using different sized pots and different material beaters (wood/metal).
Use the symbols to support your children developing different skills. First, try start and stop (can they follow your direction). Next, fast and slow and then loudly and quietly.
Too easy – see if your child can copy simple beats
