18th May to 22nd May Weekly update Reception
Another week has gone by – did it fly or has it been a slow one? I really hope it flew by because you have been so busy and having fun.
Here are some ideas for you to have a go at this week:
Theirs is still a choice to how you prefer to work in Maths. You can look to the White Rose materials as we have been doing or continue with the Oak Academy Maths lessons as we use for English.
You can take a photo of their work and share it to the Blog or you can easily upload it to ‘My Work’ Purple Mash following the guide. The advantage of this is that we can give direct feedback and awards and still share it to the Display Board in Purple Mash too. Give it a go and see what you think!
Phonics for Reception There are some excellent videos for teaching phonics here. The Set 1 video goes over the sounds we have already learnt, with a word time and spelling session and is shown at 9.30. Set 2 will be learning a new sound and spelling with this sound and is shown at 10 a.m.
Reception this week will be using the Oak Academy Materials, Week 4 English, based around the story of ‘Hansel and Gretel’. These lessons are best followed in sequence, starting with the Monday lesson. Included in the lesson are some phonics activities too as well as a quiz to recap the learning. Tap on the green buttons at the bottom of the page to make sure you do all the activities. The first lesson involves making porridge by following instructions.
Online reading books are available here. Try to do a little bit of reading every day.
Practise handwriting every day.
Or if you fancy a challenge, try one of the Writing Challenges on our page.
Storytime with Nick
From Monday 20th April, Storytime with Nick will be released; films of well-loved stories read by Nick Cannon, a trained actor, teacher and trainer and a wonderful storyteller. See him in action here.
Three stories will be published each week on this YouTube channel and are ideal for Nursery, Reception and KS1 children. So far, they are filming stories by Jeanne Willis, Tom Percival, Jill Murphy, Cressida Owen and Claire Freedman.
You can do a 5 Senses scavenger hunt using all of your senses. Look here on our website.
How do we know about dinosaurs?
In this lesson the children will learn about how we found out about dinosaurs.
There are 3 books allocated in Activelearn for this lesson which will help the children to learn more facts. These are: Dinosaurs and Fossils. These books are too advanced for your child to read so please read to them or set the program to read to the children. They will benefit from hearing a short section over a period of days. There is also a presentation about the life of Mary Anning. See the bottom of the page. The books and the presentation will give them the answer to the question.
Make fossils, as suggested on page 26, or make an ice fossil like on page 14. Have fun!
At the end of the lesson your child:
Should be able to say what a fossil is and what we can learn from them;
Or, even better, your child could be able to say how a fossil is made and tell you about Mary Anning
Complete a fossil fact file in your 2Dos on Purple Mash
This week we are learning about churches.
You can look inside a church here
Then watch this video and take a tour of the church.
