Good Morning Reception,
How are you getting on with completing your 'good citizen deeds'? Did you manage to complete two yesterday? Let's see if you can choose some more to do today! :-)
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
Choose a book of your choice to read to yourself or share it with someone in your family, discuss it and enjoy it.
You could log on to Tapestry to listen to one of the teachers read a story! Which Mystery Teacher will be reading your story today? What did you like about the story? Why?
You could also watch a CBeebies bedtime story if you would like to, or search Youtube for stories.
Good children’s authors to search for include: Julia Donaldson, Oliver Jeffers, Giles Andreae, Sophy Henn, Morag Hood, Jill Murphy, Emily Gravett, Nick Sharratt.
0930-1000- Maths Challenge
Warm up by counting to 20, forwards and backwards. You can watch Ms Woolford's video on Tapestry if you want to.
Choose another challenge today from the appropriate level grid - these were uploaded on Monday 18th in the 'Additional Resources' section. We hope that these Maths Challenges are really giving your child the opportunity to review and secure their learning from this term.
1000-1030- Home Learning Challenge (to continue after Break Time until 1130)
You could choose a challenge from any of the three Home Learning Challenge Grids or do some PE activities - don't forget to share with us on Tapestry!
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 – Writing Challenge
To warm up, start with some handwriting practice - today is 'j'. You could watch Mrs Cunningham's video on Tapestry to help you.
Every living thing has a life cycle. Have a think about an animal or plant that you want to investigate. Use the blank life cycle template or create your own and research the life cycle of your chosen living thing.
Think how it starts, the sunflower started with a seed. Maybe it your chosen living thing will start as an egg?! Then think about the changes that happen. See if you can break these down and draw pictures for the different stages.
Don’t forget to label these pictures, but only use labels as tomorrow we will write sentences about our life cycles. Remember to use your phonics when decoding your labels for spelling.
Miss Marchant has included an example for you. I chose a butterfly as I saw one in my garden. You could choose a living thing that you have seen recently!
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! Let's see if you can spot our new 'or' sound. You could watch Miss Marchant's video on Tapestry to support you with this.
In the 'Additional Resources' section you will find the 'or' Reading Activity.
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 (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.
