4th May to 8th May Weekly update Reception
How are you all? It is such a long time since we saw each other isn’t it? We really hope that you and your families are staying safe and well.
We are really enjoying looking at all the work you have been sending us and seeing what you are getting up to on the school website blog!
You can also ‘upload’ pictures of your work for comment and rewards to Purple Mash. Attached to the bottom of this update is a ‘How to Guide’ which is really simple to follow. Work uploaded to Purple Mash can be commented on to help you move your learning forwards but can still be shared to the Display Boards in Purple Mash too.
Here are a few suggestions for activities you may want to follow along with this week:
You could also try the Oak National Academy lessons for Maths too this week then see how they develop next.
You can take a photo of their work and share it to the Blog , photograph it and send it to us by 2Email, or you can easily upload it to ‘My Work’ Purple Mash following the guide below. 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 National Academy Materials, Week 2 English, based around the story of the Goldilocks and the Three Bears. 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.
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.
This week we are beginning to learn about our senses. Look here on our website.
Play Dinosaur Discovery on BBC Bitesize.
Please then make a fact file about a dinosaur, choosing from : Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops, Stegosaurus and Diplodicus. There is a fact file set up for you in Purple Mash 2Dos . Or you can make your own on paper and post them on the Blog or take a photo and upload it to Purple Mash in ‘My Work’ straight from your computer or pad and send it as an email in 2Email. Think about what the dinosaur looks like, its size, what it eats, where it lived and see if you can find out a fun fact.
Further the children’s thinking and ask; Why do you think this dinosaur has a long neck/tail? Why has that dinosaur only got small arms? Dinosaurs are a type of animal. Can you name any other type of animal? What about humans? Tell the children that humans are classed as animals.
This week we would like you to think about the Christian Value ‘ Service’. You can find an activity sheet on our website which will explain the value and give you some activity ideas. Make a service snail and complete it for your family. There is a story and activity ideas for service here and here. Please post it on the blog. Or send us a photo in an email by 2Email.
