A message from Miss Hand...

Good morning Reception!
How are you all today? I hope you all had a great day yesterday! Today you have your usual morning activities and then free choice for this afternoon. There is a new Art lesson from Miss Elliott too. I hope you enjoy today and I look forward to hearing from you on the blog. Please make sure that you look at the information all about World Book Day next week too. 

Have a lovely weekend!
Take care, Miss Hand and Mrs. Barnett smiley

Star of the week


Hi Reception! Please click on the image (on the right) to take you to the star of the week video! 

Morning routine

We always start our morning by talking about the date and weather. We sing the days of the week song and we discuss the date - what day was it yesterday, what day is it today...tomorrow?

If yesterday was the 25th, what is today? What is one more than 25... Perhaps you can talk about the date and weather at home. There is a youtube link of the days of the week song and the months of the year song below.

Basic skills

1. High frequency words - I wonder if you can practise reading/writing some of the high frequency words. I've put the Reception high frequency words and the other sets if needed (bands 1-30) in one document below. There are also flashcards for the Reception high frequency words. Have a go at reading the bands and see which band you're working within. 


2. Simple sentence - I wonder if you can write something about the picture? I wonder if you can think of your own sentence or perhaps you could write another ‘I can see’ sentence. I can see... 

It is up to you! If this is a bit tricky, you could have a go at writing some sounds/words.


3. Word of the day - Take a look at today's word of the day and have a go at the activity if you are able to. 


4. J2blast spellings - Click here to take you to the website/app where you can practise the words.

Literacy - Mr. Wolf's Pancakes

Today we are continuing our new story of Mr. Wolf's Pancakes.

I have added the story powerpoint below and all the other resources you will need in one document. Today I would like you to read the story and then have a go at writing a bit about the story.

Write about the story

You might like to have a go at writing a sentence or two about the story or some sounds/words/simple sentences about some of the pictures. Use the word mat to help you with tricky words. You also have a sound mat and a high frequency word table to help you.

Think about what you'd like to write - what sounds can you hear in the word? Can you write them down? 

If you want to write a sentence, think about what you would like to write. How many words are in your sentence?

Count them using your fingers...What's your first word? Have a go at writing it down. Remember to start with a capital letter, remember finger spaces between each word and a full stop at the end of your sentence. smiley
