Reception Home Learning – Week Beginning 29/06/20

What a lovely week of sunshine we have had! I hope you managed to enjoy some of your learning outdoors too. It has been great to see lots of you focusing your learning on the story ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. We are going to continue with this learning this week. Keep trying your best, I know it is really hard to stay motivated during these times but you are all doing an amazing job.

I hope you have enjoyed learning your tricky words. It is important to practise reading them for a couple of minutes each day as this will help you to read them in your books. I’d like you to practise writing your tricky words. Ask an adult to say a tricky word and see if you can write it! If you’re not sure you can use the tricky word templates to help you. It is very important to form your letters correctly so make sure you correct any reversals to show your progress.

Here is the final lesson in your Goldilocks story writing lessons. I can’t wait to see your finished stories.

Lesson 1:

Challenge: To practise applying your phonic knowledge in your writing I would like you to make a wanted poster to help the bears to find Goldilocks. I have attached a template below to help you.

In maths this week I would like you to practise sorting and ordering objects according to size. In the story ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, Daddy bear is large, Mummy bear is medium and Baby bear is tiny!

Can you go on a hunt around your house and find large objects like Daddy bear, medium sized objects like Mummy bear and tiny objects like Baby bear? Sort them and see how many of each size you have. You can record the total in your maths books.

Challenge: During bath time or water play use water to fill containers so that they are full, half full and empty. Can you use the words full, half full and empty to describe the amount of water in each?


Expressive Art and Design

The children in school have been making stick puppets of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and have used them to put on puppet shows. Can you make puppets of the characters? I have attached a template to help you get started but you might want to create your own. Retell the story to create a puppet show.
