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.
Start by watching this numberblocks episode (Series 4: Eighteen).
*When children write the number 18, reiterate the message that you are writing 1 for one 10 and 8 more, not 1 and 8.*
Can you find 18 things from around your house?
Have a go at representing 18 on your ten frames – don’t forget, one of your ten frames should be completely full.
Can you find the different number bonds of 18? You could use the part-whole model to help you.
Challenge: Write each of the number bonds of 18 that you find as a number sentence. E.g. 10 + 8 = 18.
1000-1030- Home Learning Challenge (to continue after Break Time until 1130)
If you fancy a change, I have uploaded some PE Activity Cards to the 'Challenges' section of the Yr R Page. Don't forget you could also use this time to learn some of our VE Day songs ready for the sing-a-long on the 7th May. :-)
You can choose one of the challenges on either of your Reception Home Learning Challenges grid to complete and, if possible, 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
Now that you have planned your own story, see if you can act it out. Maybe you will need some people to help you, or you could use your cuddly toys as the different characters and you can narrate the story. If not, how about making your own puppets!
Once you have practised your story, you could show it to your family.
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, it's time to practise reading words and sentences with our new 'igh' sound. The Activity Sheet can be found in the Additional Resources section at the bottom of the page. You could watch Miss Marchant's video on Tapestry to help you complete it.
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.
