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
Today we are getting back to learning more about a word from the story each week, just like we were doing at school. Below you will find this week's word of the week.
Word of the Week – shadow
Definition- a dark area or shape made by the blocking of light.
Synonyms- silhouette or outline.
Sentence- I can see my shadow when it is sunny.
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. Watch Mrs Cunningham's video on Tapestry, we are writing - ' z '.
Rewatch the story ‘The King of Tiny Things’. Today we want you to imagine that you are the King or Queen of Tiny Things. Can you design yourself as this character? What would you wear? What would your wings look like? Would you have a crown or a tiara? Draw and label your character design.
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 watch Ms Woolford's video on Tapestry for some number writing support.
Today we want you to do a bit of exploration and try to find two containers that you think will have the same capacity (hold the same amount of water). Measure how much water each contains, just like you did yesterday, and see if your predictions were correct. Were they the same? What was the difference in size? Record the capacity of each container, for example Container 1 holds 15 spoonful's of water.
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 'ir' sound. You could watch Miss Marchant's video on Tapestry to support you with this.
In the 'Additional Resources' section you will find the 'ir' 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 (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.
