How are you all today? Well done once again for all your hard work this week! You have been doing such fantastic learning at home which is so wonderful to see. Mrs. Barnett and I find it so hard to choose the star of the week each week, because of how hard you are all working. We think you are ALL superstars!
We have chosen somebody again this week who hasn't been the star of the week yet...click on the link below to see this week's star of the week video.
I hope you all enjoy today's activities. Remember that we finish school after lunch on a Friday! I hope you all have a really lovely weekend with your family at home. Stay safe and well.
If you haven't seen the weather forecast yet, we are meant to be having more snow on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. How exciting!
Take care, Miss Hand and Mrs. Barnett
Star of the week
Hi Reception! Please click on the link below to take you to the star of the week video!
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 28th, what is today? What is one more than 28... Perhaps you can talk about the date and weather at home. There is a youtube link of the days of the week song below.
Days of the Week song
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. Have a look at the 'I can see document' below. Take a look at Day 5.
I wonder if you can write something about this 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 the document of slides below. Take a look at Day 5and complete the activity!
Please click on the document below to see this week's Collective Worship. Please look at Friday -

Literacy - Little Red Riding Hood
Today we are continuing our new story of Little Red Riding Hood. I have added the story powerpoint below and all of the other resources that you will need in one document.
Today I would like you to read the story and then have a go at some writing. There are two different templates.
1. Fill in the missing words in the speech bubbles. Use the pictures and the story word mat to help you.
2. 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.
