Reception

Please note: A full weeks worth of home-learning has been added for this week, along with some Easter activity suggestion.

Easter activity suggestions

Below are some examples of Easter crafts and cooking that you can do at home. Obviously it will depend on the resources/ ingredients you have available, but if you can why not give one of them a go. I would love to see some photos! Just email them to the school email address.

 

Friday 3rd April

 

Phonics and Reading

To help you remember the new sounds (ar, or, ur, ow, oi) you have learnt over the last week, have a play on the unit 10 (ar, or, ur, ow, oi) Spelling and language games on Bugclub.

Continue to read through some of the books on Mondays recommended reading list that will be available on your Bugclub accounts. 

 

Handwriting

This week we have been focusing on our cursive letter formation. Remember, we learn cursive handwriting as it will help us with our joined up writing we will learn in year 1. You have been looking at the following link which contains videos which will remind you how each letter should be formed. Now, have a go at writing the full alphabet. Which letters do you form really well? Are they any that you still find tricky? Can you write your name in beautiful cursive handwriting? Can you write the answers to the spelling game on Bugclub in cursive handwriting before you order the letters on the screen?

The following link contains videos which will remind you how each letter should be formed. Have fun when you practise these; as well as using a pencil and paper, why not try chalking them in your garden, using paintbrushes and water to write them on the concrete, using your finger to form them in mud/ sand etc. Another fun game is to write them on your adults back using your finger. They have to guess which letter you have written. Swap roles. Can you guess which letter your adult has written? Keep practising your handwriting all week. Don't forget to send me some photos! Just email them to the school email.

Numeracy- Combining Two Groups using Part Whole Models

Monday 30th March

 

Phonics and Reading

You have now been allocated the unit 10 phonic games on Bugclub that you would normally be allocated for homework (unit 10 reading, sounds, names, spelling and language). These will help you to remember the new sounds (ar, or, ur, ow, oi) you have learnt over the last week. Today, have a play on the unit 10 (ar, or, ur, ow, oi) sounds game.

The following books also focus on the same sounds and are recommended to read.

Numeracy- Combing 2 groups

 

Adults- Children begin to combine two groups to find out how many objects they have altogether. One of the ways we approach this is by using a part-whole model. This can be used to show how a number can be split in to two parts. Children using this model will see the relationship between the whole number and the component parts, this helps the learners make connections between addition and subtraction.

Make your own part- whole model for your child. You could use pieces of paper with circles drawn on them, chalks on the concrete, table mats etc. The children put one set of objects in one 'part' and the other set of objects in the other 'part'. They then move all the objects to the 'whole' and count both sets together to find the total. 

 

Children- Find two sets of up to 10 objects from around your house. These could be shoes, socks, spoons, cups, lego blocks, crayons etc. Can you show your parents how we put them in the parts on a part whole model and them move both parts into the whole section to find the total?

Which has the most? Which has fewer? Get your parents to point to a set. Can you find a set with more than this one? Can you find two sets with the same quantity?

Numeracy and Literacy

  • write your own number bond rap for pairs of numbers that make 10.

 e.g.   10 and 0, Dad is my hero!

          9 and 1, so is my mum!

          8 and 2, sitting on my shoe.

          7 and 3, climbing up a tree.

          …. and so on to 0 and 10...….

 Try to make it as memorable as possible.

With the support of your parents, can you work together to write it down? Try hard to sound out some of the words using your phonics. Use the sound mat for support.  Can you perform it to your family?
