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
Log on to Tapestry to listen to one of the teachers read this week’s story!
If you are having trouble accessing our video, choose a book at home to read to yourself or share with someone in your family.
After listening to the story, you will need to complete a Reading Challenge of your choice each day from the grid below.
Can you make a mask of your favourite character in the story?
Can you draw, paint or make the story setting?
Can you draw a character from the story and add labels to describe them?
Can you act out the story? You could create your own props, puppets or costumes to help.
Can you make up a new ending to the story? You could draw, write or act this out.
Discuss what is your favourite and least favourite part of the story and why?
0930-1000- Maths Challenge
Warm up by counting to 10, forwards and backwards.
Your Maths learning each day will begin by watching a video on the White Rose Maths website. Watch the video and then complete the challenge found in the 'Additional Resources' section at the bottom of the page.
White Rose – Growing 6, 7, 8! – Week 1 – Session 2- https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/growing-6-7-8/
At the bottom of the page there are some Additional Maths Challenges. These are only to be completed after the initial White Rose lesson and challenge. Only complete them if they are appropriate for your child, or you have spare time in your day.
1000-1045- Home Learning Challenge
Choose one of the challenges on either of your Reception Home Learning Challenges grids to complete (there are now two different challenge grids). The latest grid can be found in the 'Additional Resources' section at the bottom of this page and both documents can be found on our Year R COVID-19 Home Page in the 'Challenges' section.
1045-1115 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.
1115 - 1145- Live Daily Zoom Session
Don't forget to log into zoom for our daily session. It will be great to see you all and a chance to catch up with all your friends.
1145 - 1215 – Enquiry Challenge
Today’s challenge will be a two day challenge! There is quite a lot to do so tomorrow’s Enquiry Challenge will be the same so you can finish without rushing. Slow and steady wins the race!
For the next two days we would like you to think about where you are. Draw a picture of yourself in the place that you are right now. Then think wider… what road do you live on, your town, your country, your continent, your planet?
We would like you to create the craft in the examples below. (If this is not possible, you can show each part as a drawing and label in your Enquiry Book). To complete the craft, you will need a piece of paper for each place (or you could use paper plates if you have some) and they can be cut into different sized circles or squares like the examples below. You can then begin to draw your pictures to create a special little book all about you! Don’t forget to label each circle with the information e.g. ‘I live on Sussex Road.’
Try to include the following information in this order, each on a new circle:
1. Me (and write your name)
2. My home (and the road you live on)
3. My town (Tonbridge)
4. My country (England)
5. My continent (Europe)
6. My planet (Earth)
1215 - 1315 - Lunchtime
1315- 1345 – Phonics
Open Tapestry and watch the video ‘Set 1 Speed Sounds.’ Say the sounds along with the video; can you remember them all and say them first? You should watch and say your Speed Sounds every single day.
After warming up with your Speed Sounds, watch your Phonics Lesson video on Tapestry.
1345 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 website/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.
