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 ‘Yucky Worms' by Vivian French. 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. Watch Mrs Cunningham's video on Tapestry, we are writing - 'ng'.
This week our story is all about worms! Make sure you watch our Reading Time video – Yucky Worms, on Tapestry – if you haven’t already.
Your challenge today is to describe worms. Think about our 5 senses to help you with your describing – sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch.
Draw a picture of a worm 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 worms? 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.
We will be using the language of measuring today to do some exploring in preparation for our learning this week. Can you look at the picture and, with a grown up, discuss the different points?
Now that you have used and thought about our new Maths language, it’s time to go on a scavenger hunt! Find and record something that is…
Longer than your hand.
Shorter than your foot.
Taller than you.
The same length as your finger.
The same length as a pencil.
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.
Now you have practised your Speed Sounds, watch Miss Golding's video on Tapestry - 'oy - Set 2 Sound Lesson.'
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.
