Welcome to Reception

Home Learning 

Week beginning 30th March 2020

 

Maths and motor skills Monday. 

Topic story: 

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lF-EHOTLRyU 

  • Can you pair up your socks and use pegs to clip them together. 
  • Can you design your own sock pattern? 
  • What socks do you have - Can you find you best party socks and make up your own dance? Can you put your sporty socks on and do some exercises? Can you find your smartest socks and be the teacher today teach someone in your house something new? 

 

  • What patterns do you have on your socks? 
  • Can you use your socks to make a repeated pattern? 
  • How many socks do you have? 
  • Can you count the pairs and individually? 
  • Using the socks and this song https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8jOzhiACB68 can you practice counting in twos, or doubling? 

 

Tiger Tim’s phonics time: 

REMEMBER: only use the pure sound e.g. mmmm not muh and c,c,c not cuh. There is a good video modelling pronunciation of pure sounds here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=UCI2mu7URBcThis also explains digraphs and trigraphs. 

  • Today’s sound - ear (action is on the list in photo below) 
  • Play make a match https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/3/matching-ph3w7 
  • Tricky word: you. Use a story/paper/magazine and see how many times you can find the tricky word “you” if using an old paper or magazine you might circle the words or cut them out as you go. 

Time for talk Tuesday 

 

Watch the story of Simon sock again. 

 

  • How did Simon feel at the beginning of the story? Why? 
  • What were the other socks like? 
  • What did Simon do? 
  • How does he feel at the end of the story? Why? 
  • When have you felt sad/left out? 
  • What would you do to help Simon? 
  • Think of something you’re really good at and something you would like to be better at. Can you write and draw what they are in your writing book? 
  • Can you retell the story/make up your own? 

 

Tiger Tim phonics time 

 

  • Sing the alphabet song and point to each letter on your handwriting sheet as you go. 
  • Practice writing some sentences or captions using some of your tricky words. Remember to build the sentence first and say it out loud so you know what you want to write. How many words are in your sentence, count them on your fingers. What is the first word? What is the first sound in your word? When you have done this continue for the next sound in that word. Remember you can’t sound out tricky words. 

 

Example sentences 

I am getting big. 

You are lots of fun.

We are going to feed the ducks.

Me and the dog ran quick.

 

  • Children’s focus at this stage is on phonetically plausible spellings of words that can be read by themselves and others, so a sentence that says “I luv to plai owtsighd.” or “I woched teevee last night.” is a phonetically plausible sentence. Children should be using the sounds they know as confidently as they can to write independently, rather than copying correct adult spellings.

 

What in the World Wednesday

 

Today is all about the people and world around us. 

 

*Can you do something nice for someone you know - write a card, draw a picture, make them something. 

* During your exercise time what signs of spring can you see, what changes have there been, what is still the same? 

*Can you make a signs of spring scavenger hunt to complete another day? 

* Can you collect any fallen blossoms, flowers etc and use them to make some Spring art? 

 

Tiger Tim phonics time

 

* Sound - air 

*Practice known sounds by playing quickwrite; say a sound and ch writes it down (can make into a contest by seeing who can write it the fastest, or make ch the teacher, you say a sound and they show you how to write it) 

*Look at “air” sound and how to write it. Read it in some words - hair, pair, fair, lair. 

*Phonics play comics - air comic. 

Thoughtful Thursday 

 

Today is all about curiosity and connections, there are only two activities for today:

 

  • Think about something you’ve always wanted to know. Can you research it and find out the answer/more about it. 
  • Think about someone you know who might need cheering up/thanking/someone to talk to, or even just someone you are missing, and write them a letter or card. 

 

Tiger Tim phonics time 

 

Hide some some different words (mixture of decodable and tricky words) around the house and then go on a word hunt listing the words you can find. You could use toilet/kitchen roll tubes to make binoculars to help you spot your words. When you have all of your words can you sort them into groups? 

FUNky Friday 

 

Today is all about turning the ordinary into something fun. Here are some ideas of things to do. 

* Turn your couch or bed into into a reading den to hide in and share stories. 

* Have a movie night. Set up your favourite film, make tickets and signs, choose food and make a price list (whatever your having for dinner/tea is a good one for this) to choose from during intermission. Give each person some money to spend in the “shop” and they can choose what to buy. 

- If you make your reading den downstairs you can set it up so you can watch your film in it later.

*When you have your bath see what different things float and sink, obviously being sure to be safe. If you have a shower see how many words you can write on the door. 

 

Have a safe and fun weekend!

The children in Reception have worked extremely hard over the Spring Term and have made great strides with their learning, we have been extremely impressed with their efforts. 
 

As schools are now due to close on the 20/3/2020 in a bid to combat covid19, we hope that the children will continue to challenge themselves with learning at home. We have provided some links and ideas for home learning here and on class dojo, we will continue to add to this. We will also send some activities home with the children, and you can continue to message the EYFS on class dojo for support and to show us your hard work.
