Class Routines

smileyD1 Daily Routinessmiley

 

Daily Timetable Idea

It is a good idea to create a timetable with your child, so that they have some routine and normality through this uncertain time. It will also prepare the child for learning, therefore increasing the learning outcome. You may want to agree on a certain time of day that you start and finish that suits you (mornings are usually best), but here are a few ideas that can be repeated daily and reflect our typical D1 routine. 

Picture 1

The above activities are all adult led activities, so I would suggest spacing them out with breaks in between. Breaks could be allowing your child to choose from a range of child led activities that in class we call ‘jobs’ – these could be fine motor activities such as playing Lego or play-dough etc. (see fine motor skills section on website) or listening to music, drawing, dress-up, imaginative play, outdoor play or any other activities that encourage independence (see child-led learning section on website). It is very important for your child to sometimes play without adult support.

Morning Routines

 

Each morning we sing:

 

‘Bore da ffrindau, sut wyt ti?..’ / 'Good morning friends, how are you?'  :

 

Bore da ffrindau, sut wyt ti?

Bore da ffrindau, sut wyt ti?

Bore da ffrindau, sut wyt ti?

Da iawn diolch.

Phonics Song 2

We practise this song each morning to develop our phonics knowledge. Sometimes we pause the song and think about other words that start with the same letter, and form the letter in the air.

Counting 1-10 Song | Number Songs for Children | The Singing Walrus

The children love to sing this counting song and watch the "evil piggy" let go of the number balloons. They also enjoy singing it in a funny voice like the character.... apologies in advance!!
