First in phonics, I would like you to find your own name out of two or three different name cards.
(The number on name cards will vary depending on how easily they can do this- i.e. add more names if they can recognise their name easily).
Next, we are going to play our 'Silly Sound Soup' game.
This time we will be using the sound A.
Children do not need to be familiar with recognising the letter 'a' just the sound at the start of the word.
Grab yourself a bowl and big wooden spoon- I want you to find 4 objects from around the house that begin with the A sound to put into your Silly Sound Soup. Sing the song as you mix "Today we're making silly soup, silly soup, silly soup. Today we're making silly soup! What's in our soup today?"
I would like you to send me a photograph or a video of your Silly Sound Soup and what objects beginning with 'A' you put into it.
If you can do this easily, you might want to try it with some different sounds too!
I have attached a short booklet with some ideas of items you could put into your silly soup- I'm sure you can think of lots more better ones.
Well done Nursery.
Don't forget to send me pictures of your hard work!
