Welcome to another week of home learning. Thank you to all those children that have been emailing us with photos, we love to see your work and are very impressed with how hard you are all working. There are a lot of children we still haven’t heard from. Please drop us a message so we can keep in touch. For those that requested a place for their child to come back in to school this term, Mrs Ellis will let you know details this week about an opening date and then you should receive a phone call to let you know details of arrival and departure times and where to drop off and pick up. Currently we are waiting for confirmation from the Local Education Authority and once that has been given to the school Mrs Ellis will be able to update you further. If you no longer need this place then please contact the school to let them know as we are having to group the children in bubbles so need to know how many will be in each one.
This week we would like you to continue on with your Phonic sessions.
Miss Plimmer’s, Miss Warsop’s and Mrs Hollingsworth’s groups should carry on with the Reception learning for the week beginning 18th May to the 22nd May where they will review the sounds already covered.
Miss Jones’ and Mrs Johnson’s groups should follow the learning to blend tab for the 18th – 22nd May
Mrs Towner’s group should follow the Year 1 tab for the 18th – 22nd May
For any of Mrs Towner’s or Miss Warsop’s groups that would like an extra challenge then please have a go with this tricky words booklet. If you can’t print off the booklet then please just try to write the answers where you can in your journal.
This weeks book for Maths is ‘The Princess and the Wizard’. There are some lovely activities that look at pattern, symmetry and doubles. Remember to practise the ‘Doubles rap’ we have added the link to the song on YouTube so that you can become an expert on your doubles. If you like number songs then look for ‘Jack Hartman’ on youtube and he does a wide range of number songs. Go back over your numbers to 100 and your number bonds to 5, 10 and 20.
As we are looking at the ‘Princess and the Wizard’ this week we though we would do some work on traditional tales for our curriculum work. Have a go at these activities.
This would be a good opportunity to read some traditional tales as we would have read different ones every day if we had been in school. There are some traditional tales on the Oxford Owl website so why not have a look at those when you go on to do your reading. Please don’t forget to read. Reading for 10 minutes each day will be the best tool in helping your child to minimise any loss of learning while they have been away from school. We can’t stress enough how this is the most important thing that you as parents can do.
We hope you have a wonderful week and fingers crossed the sun starts to shine again. Keep up all the good work and we look forward to seeing your lovely photos.
The Reception Team
