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.
Miss Kavanagh 🙂
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.
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.
Reception Home Learning – Week Beginning 22/06/20
Hello Reception, I hope you are all keeping well. It has been so lovely to welcome some of you back this week and I am very proud of the way you have adapted to our new rules and routines. I am also proud of the children who continue to learn from home. You and your grown-ups are doing a fantastic job, keep up the hard work! Here is next week’s home learning, I hope you enjoy it 🙂
I have attached a tricky word mat for you to practise reading the words on sight. You cannot segment and blend these words so it is a good idea to play games with them to help to remember them. Here are some games you can play. It is a good idea to use phase 2 words first, when you are secure with these words you can try using phase 3 and 4 to challenge yourselves.
Write the words out individually onto pieces of card or paper twice. Turn them over and take turns with an adult to find the matching words. You can only keep the pair if you can read them! Good Luck
Write the words individually on paper or card. Ask an adult to read the words one at a time. Using your hand, a fly swat or a ruler splat the words the adult reads. See how quickly you can find them.
If you prefer our online learning tools you can play tricky word trucks following the link below. The website is still free to access using these details.
I hope you have enjoyed the learning set about Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Here are the following lessons to build on your learning.
Challenge: To practise applying your phonic knowledge in your writing I would like you to look at the eye spy picture attached. What can you see? Can you write a list of all of the things you can spy? Can you put some of those words into a caption or sentence?
Building on from last week’s lessons we will learn to find one less than a number to 20.
Challenge: To practise applying your maths skills I am setting you a number challenge. I’d like you to make your own numberline writing numbers from 1 to 5, then 1 to 10 and finally 1 to 20. Please make sure your numbers are the right way around ensuring correct number formation. You can practise any that you might find tricky.
I hope you enjoyed going for a walk to find things from God’s creation. Recap the story discussing God’s creations with an adult. God would want us to look after our world. What do you think we can do to help? You could draw a picture or write a sentence to share your ideas.
