Firstly, please accept my apologies for the delay in posting. There was a small technical problem that has been resolved.
The learning this week will be based around the story “The Gingerbread Man”. Try to familiarise yourself with this story, if you do have access to the book that’s great, I will upload an Ebook version for those who do not.
Rehearse the rhyme “Run, run as fast as you can! You can’t catch me. I’m the Gingerbread Man!”
Can you say it aloud? Now try and whisper it. Say it in your Gruffalo voice. Say it in your mouse voice. Say it really fast. Now say it slow.
Can you think of 3 words that rhyme with a man? Write them down or draw them.
Without using the book, how much of the story do you remember? Retell the story to a grown-up. You could use the images attached as ‘sequencing’ to help you. If you have a printer you could print them out and try to put them in order.
I have attached a recipe for gingerbread playdough. Make your own gingerbread people, using loose parts collected from around the house have a thing what could you use for buttons, eyes and mouths.
Reception Home Learning – Week Beginning 13/7/20
Thank you for continuing to work hard whilst completing your home learning. I was very impressed with your maths work this week. You have remembered lots of 3D shape names, well done 🙂 Here is next week’s home learning. Have a great week!
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Little Red Riding Hood stopped to talk to The Big Bad Wolf. Do you think this was a good idea? Talk to a grown up at home about what she should have done.
In school we have been practising our segmenting and blending to read words. Please practise reading the phase 2 and phase 3 words. This will help to prepare you for Year 1.
Please continue with your learning focusing on Little Red Riding Hood.
Challenge: Can you draw a picture of Granny’s cottage in the woods? Label the different parts of the cottage to use and apply your phonic knowledge.
This week we will continue our shape work by practising and consolidating some key skills.
Challenge: Practise your number recognition with this colour by numbers activity.
Expressive Art and Design
Red Riding Hood took some tasty treats to her Granny’s house. Can you decorate some cakes or biscuits? Don’t forget to take a photograph and send it to our school email address.
Another week has passed and I have seen many of you working hard. I am very impressed with how well you are reading your tricky words! It is great to see so many of you using them in your writing. Keep up the hard work! This week we are learning all about Little Red Riding Hood. I hope you enjoy your activities.
Your tricky word recall and writing has been amazing! Well done, keep practising and you will get even better. In school we have been playing a game called ‘beat the clock’. To join in you need a one-minute timer. See how many of the words you can read correctly in one minute. Good luck, I can’t wait to hear how you get on J
I have really enjoyed reading your sentences and stories about Goldilocks. Here are this week’s literacy lessons based on Little Red Riding Hood.
Challenge: What do you think each character would say in the story? Can you write a sentence from the character’s perspective to explain what they are saying? You can use the speech bubble templates to help you.
In maths this week we are going to practise some key skills, such as, number recognition, counting on and back and sharing. Using the board below see who can get to Granny’s cottage first! If you land on a wolf, you must move back 2 spaces. I can’t wait to hear all about your fantastic number skills.
Challenge: Watch the video on 3D shapes. Can you name the 3D shapes and describe them using language, such as, faces? Can you find any 3D shapes around your house?
Physical Development & Expressive Art and Design
This week I would like you to use the template to create a healthy basket for Granny. Discuss with an adult which foods are healthy and contain lots of vitamins to help Granny grow big and strong. Discuss which foods are unhealthy and should be eaten in moderation. Make sure you have a go at cutting out the pictures by yourself. This will help to develop your physical skills.
