1st to 5th June Weekly update Reception
We hope you’ve had a lovely half term break, whatever you have got up to together – if you’ve photos to share, please put them on the Blog for us to see!
Here are some ideas for you to have a go at this week:
We would recommend you take a look at the White Rose Materials to support your child in Maths at home. We will be using these to support learners in class too. This week it is focussed around ‘The Snail and the Whale’ which can be heard read here.
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 5 English, based around the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. These lessons are best followed in sequence, starting with lesson 1. 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.
Online reading books are available here. Try to do a little bit of reading every day.
Practise handwriting every day.
Write a diary for your favourite days. There is a diary set up in your Purple Mash 2Dos. You can draw a picture and write a sentence or two about what you did. If you tap on the green tick at the top right hand corner, there is a writing checklist and on the left, some prompts to help you along.
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.
Our Christian value for this half term is 'Truthfulness'. Stories and activities can be found here.
Picture News Activity ideas linked to an issue current in the news.
Take a look at the Eco Activities page and let us know how you get on with one of the activities this week.
You might want to take part in a national art competition with an RE focus which can be found here.
Outdoor Learning: There is a project called 30 Days Wild from the Wildlife Trust- which runs every day throughout the month of June. Can you do something 'wild' that links to nature every day during June? We'd love to hear about any that you manage to do- why not post a blog about what you have done? Scroll down to see the ideas here for each day.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
