Next week we will be reading and retelling the story of The Gingerbread Man. We will be making our own gingerbread men, painting our favourite nursery rhyme or traditional story characters, using a ‘Traditional Tales’ phonebook, and using a dice to recognise dots as numbers while creating our own gingerbread man pictures. In our small sound groups we will be listening out for the initial sound in words through playing name games. If you would like to support your child at home with this, you could at first try repeating the first sound, eg. J-j-j-jamal. This could be repeated for other family members. You could also try some alliteration with your child’s name, eg. Jumping Jamal, Dinosaur Dan.
