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
Can you retell the story - Yucky Worms - in your own words? Listening to the story again and drawing pictures, like a story map, could help you. Alternatively, you could watch the story with no sound to tell the story yourself.
0930-1000- Writing Challenge
To warm up, start with some Handwriting - you could rewatch one of Mrs Cunnigham's videos on Tapestry.
Your challenge today is to write two cool facts about worms. There are lots of facts in the story - Yucky Worms – you could choose your favourite ones to write into your own sentences.
If you want to, you could use the internet to find out some more interesting things. I wonder if you can teach us a new fact about worms!
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.
Using the worms you made yesterday, can you measure them? Measure them with a small non-standard unit of measure – this could be building bricks / buttons / pasta / stones etc. Whatever you use to measure with, ensure they are all the same size.
How many of your objects long are each of your worms? What is the difference between the longest and the shortest?
If you prefer, you could use our worms to measure and order – they can be found in the Additional Resources section.
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.
Today we are revisiting – ay – may I play?
Log on to Tapestry to revisit the sound with Miss Golding. Once you have had a warm up, read the green words and then complete the Spelling Activity which 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.
