Week Beginning 27th April 2020

Hello Reception, we hope you are all well and have been enjoying the sunshine. It was lovely to speak to you all over the last two weeks. We loved hearing your voices and hearing all of your news it really made us smile. From this week we are starting our new way of learning as mentioned in our previous blog. Below you will find a weeks worth of Phonics, Maths and curriculum activities that are similar to what we would have been doing in school. Children can then email work to their class teacher but only if they would like too. They can send in a piece of work by taking a picture, a Word document/ PowerPoint or if they would just like to write to their teacher about their work. To send the piece of work to your child’s teacher please send it to the following relevant email: RLJ@coundon.coventry.sch.uk RMT@coundon.coventry.sch.uk RSP@coundon.coventry.sch.uk

Please find below a weeks worth of Phonics activities for each of the Phonics groups. Please do the activities for the group that your child is in. They should know what phonics group they are in but if they are unsure then email your class teacher and they should be able to tell you. Remember to warm up for your Phonics session by singing the jolly phonics or tricky words songs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2HYM9VXz9k https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvMyssfAUx0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R087lYrRpgY

Please follow the following link to find a weeks worth of Maths activities that come from the White Rose scheme of work which is the scheme we follow in school. Follow the activities dated 27/4. If you would like to read any of the books that the activities relate to then you should be able to find these on you tube. We have added a link to one of the books to get you started. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdWxBn-xvrQ (night pirates story on cbeebies)

For those of you that would like a little extra challenge in maths I have included the ‘Digging Deeper’ activities on pattern that have a focus on problem solving and reasoning.

We have also set a range of spring activities that you can do at home. Remember to talk about all of the changes that you notice between Spring and Winter and see if you can remember how it has changed from the Autumn.

We look forward to seeing some of your work over the coming week. Remember just email us once a week and we will do our best to get back to you. Enjoy the sunshine and don’t worry about getting everything done. Do as much as you can and remember the oxford owl website https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/ follow the home learning link where you can access lots of eBooks that follow the reading scheme. If you find the books for 4-5 year old a little difficult then look at the year below. Likewise if you find them too easy then look at the year above. Remember Reading is the Key. Continue being the stars that you are and we hope to see you all soon,

The Reception Team
