Thursday 7th January

Welcome Home Learners!

Today is your first day of home learning! Let's have some fun!

We have a brand new topic! It is...

 

 

Have you ever heard this word before? What is it? Where is it? 

Turn to your grown up and tell them what you think. Then take a look at the video below and see if you are correct!

Here is a special slide show from a wonderful animal that lives in the Arctic. He would like to show you around his home. You will find out some awesome facts about the Arctic! Listen carefully and see what you can find out!

Polar Bear's Artic Tour!

Thursday's Literacy

 

Look at the picture below. This is a a picture of the Arctic. It is very busy with the kind of things that you would see at the Arctic. Grab a piece of paper and a pencil and carry out this challenge...

 

Here is Mrs Cook to help you with your writing challenge...

I know how you all love reading Reception 2 heart You and your grown ups will love this website! It has lots of e-books that you can use to continue to practise those amazing reading skills that you have begun to develop. Remember! Use your phonics skills to help you to segment and then blend and read the phonemes. Try using expression and change your voice to represent the characters and ask your grown ups to ask you lots of questions to help to quiz your brilliant brains and make sure that you are reading for meaning and purpose. Start at the first section and work through progressively.

Thursday's Maths

 

We usually begin our whole class carpet session doing some 'mental maths'. This warms up the brain, consolidates prior learning and helps with quick recall. Carry out these short snappy activities:

 

  • Count forwards to 20 and then back to 0
  • Give your child a number between 1-20 and ask them 'what is 1 more/1 less?'
  • Show them a shuffled set of 0-20 number cards and ask what each number is
  • Ask them to order these shuffled number cards out on the floor.
  • Give them a number to write from memory.
  •  

Remember! You must gauge whether your child is practising with numbers 0-5/0-10/0-20. Every child is at a different stage.

 

This week, we are looking at number tracks and noticing whether numbers are missing. This helps children to get a real sense of number and make sure that the numbers they count and write are in the correct order.

Encourage your child to count out loud to help them. 

 

Which numbers are missing in these number tracks? Beware! They get trickier and trickier!

Thursday's Physical Challenge

 

Listen to your grown ups as they share an Arctic Yoga story with you. Can you follow the yoga moves? Yoga helps you to feel calm and to balance and stretch different parts of your body.


 

Just follow the link below!

Well done for completing today's learning!

 

 

It would be just lovely if we could set up a photo page on here to display and celebrate the children's home learning. It is a great way for the children to see one another and to inspire one another. Please email photos to me!

See you all tomorrow!
