Hi Reception 2! How are you today? Are you smiling and feeling happy? (I really hope so!)
How’s about we start the day with a happy dance?
Tuesday’s Topic Activity
The weather changes throughout the seasons. Listen to this information text which is read out loud, it tells us all about the spring weather.
Chat to your grown up and talk about how the weather is changing now spring is coming. How is the weather in spring compared to the weather in winter? Do you like the spring weather? Why? Why not?
If you can get out to the park or on a local walk today, then it would be awesome if you get your senses at the ready and do this lovely Spring Senses Scavenger Hunt with your lovely grown up. The link to print it is below the pic. You could write a list to take with you of things to find after looking at the pics on the screen.
Have a lovely time!
Monday’s Literacy Activity
Below is a written description of springtime weather. Read it together, your child could attempt some words. Then answer the questions below. Your child could answer them verbally or write their answers down. Have a phoneme to hand to help them to spell words and remind them to use finger spaces!
Monday’s Phonics Activity
Practise the phonemes learned so far (up to oo/oo) by joining in with the Jolly Phonics songs and actions.
Look at the pictures of things that have ‘ee’ in them. On a piece of paper write a word for each picture. Write them in a list. Can you hear the beginning, middle and final sound in each word? Your child may need the phase 2 and 3 phoneme mats to help them to spell the words.
Join in with the song to hear words that contain the ‘ai’ digraph.
Join in with the song to hear words that contain the ‘ee’ digraph.
Read and enjoy this funny, decodable comic! Find and list the ‘ai’ and ‘ee’ words as you read them? Can you change your voice and pretend to be the characters?
Try drawing and playing Tricky Word Hopscotch. Use the words that your child needs the most practise with.
Tuesday’s Maths Activity
Warm up your brains first!
Your child can use a pencil and paper to draw pictures to help them to work out the real-life problems. You can alter the numbers in the word problems to meet the needs of your child.
Tuesday’s Physical challenge
Here are some home challenges for your child to practise the important physical skill of balancing.
Join the Cosmic Kids as they carry out yoga poses that practise balance.
It is time for some handwriting practise. Below is a file with a sheet for each letter of the alphabet. We teach letter formation in a specific order of letters, so please scroll down and print only c a and d for today. If you have no printer, then copy the sheet with letters in yellow for your child to trace with a darker colour and a few lines with a modelled letter for your child to copy. Make sure they start from the correct point (the bold dot) with each letter.
Today’s learning is coming to an end! Enjoy this spring themed story.
Enjoy the rest of your day everyone! See you tomorrow.
