Before 0900- Wake Up and Get Dressed

Get ready for the day with independence; have a wash, dress yourself, eat breakfast and brush your teeth. 


0900-0930 - Reading 

This week our story is called ‘The Very Lazy Ladybird’ by Isobel Finn and Jack Tickle. Watch the video on Tapestry of one of your teacher’s reading it for you.  


0930-1000- Writing Challenge 

To warm up, start with some Handwriting - you could rewatch one of Mrs Cunningham's videos on Tapestry.


This week our story is all about ladybirds!  Make sure you watch our Reading Time video – The Very Lazy Ladybird, on Tapestry – if you haven’t already. 
Your challenge today is to describe ladybirds.  Think about our 5 senses to help you with your describing – sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch.   
Draw a picture of a ladybird and label it with as many describing words as you can think of.  As an extra challenge, can you put any of those describing words into a sentence about ladybirds?  Make sure you use your phonics to sound out the words before you write them and don’t forget your lead ins! 


1000-1030- Home Learning Challenge (to continue after Break Time until 1130) 

Choose a challenge!  We now have 4 Reception Home Learning Challenge Grids to choose from. :-)  


1030-1100 Break Time 

Have one healthy snack: a banana, apple, orange etc.  with a glass of milk or water.  Take some time to relax, maybe you could listen to another story online.   


1100 - 1130- Home Learning Challenge 

Continue your Home Learning Challenge that you started – don’t forget to try and upload it to Tapestry so that we can see it!  


1130 - 1200 – Maths Challenge 

Warm up by counting to 20, forwards and backwards.  You could also rewatch Ms Woolford's number writing videos on Tapestry to help with your number formation - use the search bar and type in 'Maths writing number ...' to find the video you want.


Today we would like you to start by watching this episode of Numberblocks – Double Trouble: It is all about doubling. We are going to be learning all about doubles this week in Maths.  

We would like you to have a go at the 'Practical Pairs' game. You need to choose a number and represent it, and then get an adult or sibling to copy it to make double the amount. So if you choose 3 pebbles, so does the other player. You can even do this game by yourself to explore doubles. Can you count how many you have altogether? You can use pebbles, your fingers or toes, sticks, pasta, pencils or anything in the house or garden. To challenge yourself, think about the number sentences you might record.  


1200 - 1300 - Lunchtime 


1300- 1330 - Phonics 

Open Tapestry and watch the video ‘Set 1 Speed Sounds.’  Say the sounds along with Miss Bailey; can you remember them all and say them before she does?  You should watch and say your Speed Sounds every single day.   

Today we are revisiting – ee – what can you see?

Log on to Tapestry to revisit the sound with Miss Golding.  Once you have had a warm up, read the green words and then complete the Spelling Activity which can be found in the 'Additional Resources' section.   


1330 Onwards- Plan, Do, Review 

Encourage your child to make a Learning Choice from a list of options (change these to suit) but they should include selecting from: 

  • Indoor exercise (Cosmic Yoga - found on YouTube or GoNoodle);

  • Go for an afternoon walk;

  • A Home Learning Challenge;

  • A Forest School Challenge;

  • Be creative (craft, painting, playdough, baking);

  • Exercise (ride your bike, go for a run, play football/rugby);

  • Quiet activity (independent reading, puzzle, colouring, board game);

  • Screen time on a learning wesbite/app (links can be found on the ‘Useful Websites to Support Home Learning’ section of our COVID-19 Yr R Page). 


When your child has made their choice, discuss: Where are they going to do their Learning Choice?  What exactly are they going to be doing?  How are they going to do it? 

When they have completed their Learning Choice, Review it.  What went well?  How could they improve it?  You could revisit it tomorrow afternoon to improve.  What have they learnt?   


When you have finished, enjoy some free time to yourself or to spend with your family.   

We hope you have had a lovely day and we can’t wait to see your uploads on Tapestry.
