Week Beginning 18th May 2020

Hello Reception, can you believe we are in week 7 of Home schooling! We would like to say a massive well done to you all and your parents for trying so hard to keep up with your school work. We know you have all probably got questions to ask about the reopening of Reception on June 1st and are quite anxious. Mrs Ellis will be in touch with you all once a plan has been formulated as you can imagine it is a big undertaking and we have lots of issues to sort through. Just know that ultimately the choice is yours.

This week we would like you to continue with the Phonics, Maths and Curriculum work as you have done over the last few weeks. Miss Perrit and Mrs Gray have also asked us to pinpoint you in the direction of ‘Real P.E’ which is the scheme of work we were beginning to follow in school for our P.E lessons. If you would like to get involved in some fun P.E sessions then please read the attached file below.

Phonics will continue the format we used last week. We asked parents to let us know which format they preferred but only had a limited amount of responses so we are sticking with the online teaching videos as these seemed to be the favoured response.

Miss Jones and Mrs Johnson’s groups please follow ‘Learning to Blend’ 4th -8th May

Miss Plimmer’s, Miss Warsop’s and Mrs Hollingsworth’s Phonics Groups follow the Reception tab 4th – 8th May

Mrs Towner’s phonics group follow the Year 1 tab 4th -8th May

If there are any children in Mrs Towner’s Phonics group who require an extra challenge or feel they know the sounds that are been taught in the online videos then feel free to have a go at this Phase 5 activity booklet

Maths This week will be a range of activities following the story ‘Superworm’. We have included a link to the story if you haven’t got the book at home. We have seen some lovely photos of the different Maths activities and are so glad that you are enjoying them.

To link with some of the lovely Maths work you have been enjoying we are going to focus on Mini-beasts this week for our Curriculum learning. Get outside and see what mini-beasts you can find. If you go out on a daily walk have a look for as many different ones as you can. Coundon Wedge is a fantastic place to look for mini-beasts so if you haven’t been, maybe you could walk that way and go on a mini-beast hunt. We would have been going for a walk and a Brook paddle down at the wedge if we had been in school so maybe you could pop on your wellies and go and have a paddle in the shallow bit of the wedge and look for mini-beasts – make sure you do this safely though and with a grown up. We would love to see photos of your mini-beast hunt. Read the story below and have a go at the different activities.

We hope you have a wonderful week Reception. We have added another story read by one of the Reception team to microsoft teams for you to have a look at. The teachers phoned this week with your email and password details so if you would like to see the story then don’t forget to log in.

Have a wonderful week and don’t forget to keep in touch there are still a number of children that we have not heard from – class email addresses are below.
