A message from Miss Hand...
Happy Friday! At school on a Friday we usually have our Star of the week assembly in class and our Collective worship. We also do a review of our phonics sounds learned during the week.
We then have our PE lesson and Music before lunch and then home.
Phonics - I have added some Alphablocks videos for the sounds that we have learned over the last 2 weeks. While you are watching them, perhaps you could have a go at reading the words and then writing them down.
PE - I have also added some yoga videos for you to do as your PE lesson.
Music - Further down the page you'll find the lyrics for Away in a Manger to practise at home, along with lots of Nursery thymes that we sing at school. Enjoy!
Mrs. Barnett and I just want to say a HUGE well done for all your hard work at home and we can't wait to see you all back at school on Monday.
Take care, Miss Hand and Mrs. Barnett
A reminder of useful resources on our class page...
I hope you have enjoyed the home learning activities over the last 2 weeks. Please remember that even when we are back at school, the class page is a really useful resource for both you and your child. There are dates for your diary, an overview of what we are doing in class, resources to help support learning at home, and so much more.
Please see the table below to give you an idea of what you will find on the Reception class page.
A recap of the 2 weeks - ng, ai, igh, ee
We have PE on a Friday morning at school, so I thought you might like to do some yoga this morning. You have a few different options. The best one is probably the We're going on a bear hunt yoga - we read this story at school in September, s0 we know it very well.
I have also put a Gruffalo-themed yoga video for you as well. Enjoy!
I thought you might also like to practise some Nursery Rhymes today that we sing in school and our Christmas carol that we have been learning - Away in a manger. Enjoy!
Some Nursery Rhyme facts for you!
Experts in Literacy and child development have discovered that if children know 8 Nursery Rhymes off by heart by the time they're 4 years old, they are usually among the best readers by the time they are 8 years old.
The importance of nursery rhymes for the under 7’s
Nursery rhymes play an important role in early childhood development and education. As well as being fun they are excellent teaching tools:
1. Nursery rhymes and children’s songs boost vocabulary and language development.
2. They help children to develop literacy skills.
3. They provide a fun way to support early numeracy skills.
4. Nursery rhymes help children to develop social, physical and emotional skills.
