 recorder fingering

i am a self taught flute player and have also dabbled with a tin flute. i just picked up a soprano recorder to mess around with. i am finding a few things difficult. one is the F fingering. i find the split fingering tough to get the hang of. also, i don't really hear any difference in fingering an F with the first four fingers (plus thumb) or the way the fingering chart says to do it. am i missing something or is it a suttle difference? my other question is fingering the high E. the chart says to half cover the thumb hole but i seem to be able to get the exact same note by not covering the thumb hole at all and just playing like i would play the flute (just playing a higher note with the same fingering). again, am i missing something here?
