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- Lazy
Definition- Unmotivated to do something or doesn’t want to waste energy on the activity.
Synonyms- inactive, unmotivated, work-shy
Sentence- The child was too lazy to tidy their toys.
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 draw and write about what ladybirds eat. You may need to do some research on the internet to find out what they like.
After you have drawn and labelled your pictures, you could write a sentence about what ladybirds eat to challenge yourself. 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 want you to explore different ways of finding doubles. You may want to continue the Practical Pairs game, use your tens frame or part-whole model. You may wish to try all 3 and see which way you find the easiest. Today we want you to write down your number sentence. So for example, if you were finding the double of 4 your number sentence would be 4+4=8. This is because you have two groups of 4 and when we count them altogether we have 8. Have fun exploring all the different doubles.
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 that you have done your Speed Sounds, we are going to do some reading! 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 ee 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.
Both documents 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.
