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 ‘Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell' by Sue Hendra . 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 a slug! Make sure you watch our Reading Time video – Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell, on Tapestry – if you haven’t already.
Your challenge today is to describe slugs. Think about our 5 senses to help you with your describing – sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch.
First, draw a picture of a slug and label it with as many describing words as you can think of. Can you do some research and find out about the different parts of a slug? Head, tail, body, tentacles etc.
As an extra challenge, can you put any of those describing words into a sentence about slugs? 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.
Starter - Number of the Day: 11
Can you complete the Number of the Day poster? You can use your own format if you want to or just do it practically!
Practise writing the number first (in the circle at the top – you could watch Ms Woolford’s number writing video to help you), then draw a pictorial representation of it in ‘the same as’ box. After that, write and draw the number that is one less and one more than our number of the day. Can you spot the numbers on a number line?
Today you have some Maths Challenge Questions to test your adding skills. The questions are on different levels – Mild, Medium & Hot – choose the most appropriate challenge for you.
Don’t forget to use your part-whole model or ten frames to help you find the answers. If you really want to challenge yourself, you could use a number line or try and work out the answers in your head!
If you work out the answers in your head, make sure you check your answer afterwards using one of our methods.
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 – oo - look at a book.
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.
