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 – Scuttle.
Definition – to move quickly, with small, short steps.
Synonyms – scurry, scamper, dart, dash, rush.
Sentence – I can hear a minibeast scuttling about in the garden.
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 your chosen minibeast eats. Is this similar to other creatures that you have found out about? Would you have food for this creature in your garden? If you think you do you could always go and have a look to see if they are there munching away!!
After you have drawn and labelled your picture, you could write a sentence about what they eat.
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.
Starter - Number of the Day: 17
Can you complete the Number of the Day poster? You can use your own format if you want to or just do it practically!
Practise writing the number first (in the circle at the top – you could watch Ms Woolford’s number writing video to help you), then draw a pictorial representation of it in ‘the same as’ box. After that, write and draw the number that is one less and one more than our number of the day. Can you spot the numbers on a number line?
You will need your bug pots again for today's Maths Challenge. We have looked at halving and doubling previously in our maths. We would like you to find half and then double of each of the amounts that you have in your bug pots. You may find it helpful to use your part-whole model to work these out. Remember when you half a number you start with the number in the top of the part-whole model and share it between the two lower parts. When doubling you need to count the amount into both the lower parts and move both up into the whole to find the total. Can you equally half all the amounts? Can you estimate which amount when doubled will be the largest?
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! Log on to Tapestry to watch the video for 'or-shut the door'. 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 or 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.
