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 

Word of the Week – Creature 

Definition- a creature is an animal or other being that isn’t a human being.  

Synonyms- animal, beast or unknown being. 

Sentence- I couldn't see the creature in the shadows.  

Can you write your own sentence or definition using the word of the week?  Over the week try to use the word whenever you can. 


0930-1000- Writing Challenge 

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


Your challenge today is to go on a Bog Baby hunt. Think of a place that you know, maybe in your garden or on a walk you have been on, that you think would be somewhere a Bog Baby might live. Think about the story and where the girls find their Bog Baby. Do you know somewhere similar? Go to this place and look for any clues. Were there bluebells there? Is there a pond? Is it in the woods? Record any clues you might find that you think a Bog Baby could have left. Let us know if you see one! 


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 

Starter: Warm up by counting to 20, forwards and backwards.  How have you been doing with your Number of the Day Challenges?  If there are still some numbers that you find tricky, continue to look at a different number each day.  Practise being able to recognise your numbers to 20, in and out of order.  


This week is going to be a little bit different for Maths.  We have spent another full term learning at home so we are going to take this time to review the things that we have learnt.  There are three Maths Challenge Grids all pitched at different levels:  

Mild (below expected (1)), Medium (expected level (2)) and Hot (above expected (3)).    

We would like you to choose one Maths Challenge to complete each day based on your child’s learning needs and current understanding.  We will complete a challenge on the grid each day right up until the last day of term - Wednesday 22nd July.  Choose your challenges from the most appropriate level for your child.    


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.   


There are two challenges to choose from today: 1) Revisit the Reading Activity sheet, or .2) Can you be a sound detective and spot all of the words with the ir sound?  The story is a challenge to read – you could read it to your child and see if they can hear the sound or they can underline the words that they spot.   


1330 Onwards- Transition to Year 1 Activities

Transition Activities for the week can be found in the 'Additional Resources' section below.  Some activities include posts from your new teachers on Tapestry so be sure to log on regularly - posts from your new teachers will not appear until the afternoon.


Please post on Tapestry as much as possible, engaging with the activities set by your new teachers is really important so they can get to know you really well before September.  Miss Jeffery and Miss Wilson have their own accounts so they will be able to see and like/comment on everything you upload.  :-)


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.
