 Information for parents to read 

 

Hello Reception class, I hope you are all well. Mrs. Barnett and I are missing seeing you all, but we look forward to seeing you when we are back at school. 

I know that you have home learning packs at home to work through, but I have added lots of links to this page where you can complete a variety of activities.

 

At the top you will find links to pages where the children have their own logins (BGFL 365, Active learn and Numbots). There are lots of website links/resources to help with reading, writing and maths, but also a number of websites where you can enjoy singing, dancing, yoga, lego challenges, virtual tours around the world etc.

 

Please remember that in addition to this page there are already Reception resource pages on the previous page  (Reception resources, Reception websites, Reception youtube videos, Parent/carer resources).

 

Please do not expect your child to be sitting down and working for long periods of time. In the morning in Reception we have phonics for 30 minutes, a quick 'wake up, shake up' and then we have whole class learning time on the carpet for around 15 minutes. The children will then work in small focus groups or 1:1 with an adult for a similar amount of time (15 minutes).

When they are not with an adult they access a range of independent activities to explore, where they learn through play. A similar structure happens in the afternoon with the addition of maths - Little Big Maths for 10 minutes and then whole class learning time on the carpet for around 15 minutes. The children will then have focused learning with an adult (15 minutes) or they will be independently learning.

 

We read lots of stories in Reception and this is so, so important. I would say that reading with your child and your child reading to you is one of the best things to be doing at home with them. In addition to this, try to do some daily maths and practise reading and writing sentences. smiley

 

Above all, stay safe and healthy,
and enjoy playing and learning together as a family.

 

I will add to this page with new activities as often as possible. Thank you, Miss Hand and Mrs. Barnett laugh

Well done to everyone who has completed some of their online work. 

Here are the 10 children who have been awarded points so far! smileyyes

Reception 2019-20

 

Hi Reception. How are you all doing today?

 

Today we break up for our summer holidays so it is our last day of school. I will put the usual daily activities on today and also a number of challenges that you can complete over the

summer if you so wish. Remember there are lots of other activities on this page that you can access whenever you want to. It is time for a break and you definitely deserve a break after all your hard work. You don't need to update the blog after today. smiley

 

It has been a very strange end to the year and Mrs. Barnett and I are so sad that we don't get say a proper goodbye to you all in our own classroom before you move to Year One, but we want to say a HUGE thank you for all being so wonderful. We have loved having you in our class! After the holiday it will be time for you to move into Year One, but we won't be far away and we know you'll be great. smiley

We also want to say a HUGE thank you for working so, so hard at home and for your fantastic blog posts. We have loved keeping in touch with you, reading all your messages and seeing your photos. We have felt very proud seeing the super work you have been doing. smiley

There is a class of 2020 poster that you might like to download below with your names on as a little keepsake of our year together!

We hope you are all well and we hope that you and your families all have a really wonderful well-deserved summer break together.

Take care and we'll see you soon.

Miss Hand and Mrs. Barnett laugh

There are lots of activities on this page that you can explore, but here are your activity suggestions for today...

 

The Literacy, Maths and Phonics will change on a daily basis, the other activities are suggestions for the week! 

 

You don't have to complete them all.

Please feel free to complete as many as you wish to/are able to do. 

 Literacy challenge - sentence practice (for today)

I wonder if you could have a go at one or some of these challenges. You don't have to do them all. I hope you enjoy the challenges. smiley

 Literacy - story activities (for this week)

This week we’re going to look at the story of Chalk by Bill Thomson! This is a book without words... It's a fantastic story! I wonder if you can think of some words to go with the pictures. It's all about MAGIC chalk! Why not have a look at the story on Youtube. I have also added a link to a little video showing you when I found some MAGIC CHALK in our outdoor area at school. How exciting! I decided to draw a picture using the chalk, though I think you'll agree that I maybe chose the wrong thing to draw... Check it out!

Miss Hand's Chalk - https://our-lady-and-st-rose-of-lima-catholic-primary-school.primarysite.media/media/miss-hands-chalk

 

Here are some ideas linked to the story that you might like to do this week... (remember you don't have to do them all, just do what you want to/are able to do). There are word mats to help you!

 

1. Sequence the story - draw pictures of the story in the right order. You don’t have to draw absolutely everything that happened in the story, you can just pick the key events. Think about what happened at the beginning, middle and end…

2. Draw a story map of the story… Again, just try and think of the key events in the story. I wonder if you can retell the story of Chalk... 

3. Write a sentence/some sentences/the story of Chalk - It doesn't have to be long. Try and use some story language, e.g. Once upon a time...Next...Then...Finally...One Day...The End. Use your phonics sound mat and your high frequency words! There is a 'Chalk' writing frame below if you would like to use it.

4. If you had magic chalk like the one in the story, what would you draw? What might it do when it 'comes to life' and what might you do? There is a 'Chalk' writing frame below if you would like to use it.

5. If you have some chalk at home, why not have a go at drawing some different things that you'd like to magically 'come to life'...

 

Phonics

Phonics - Letters and Sounds (for today)

For phonics, please continue to watch the  Letters and Sounds videos 

There are 3 options - The videos to help with blending sounds have now finished.

 

1. If your child has been watching the blending videos and is now confident with blending sounds, then I would recommend going back to watch the Reception phonics videos from the start - Reception - Lesson 1.

2. If your child still needs help with blending, revisit the blending videos and go back to Blending - Lesson 1.

3. The Reception videos will be continuing as normal at 10am. They are currently reviewing sounds that have been learned and extending the learning. If your child has been able to access the Reception videos, please continue with them. Enjoy!

Letters and Sounds-Parent and carers guide to tricky words- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQmtOXbf3-0

Daily phonics lessons for Reception are posted on Youtube at 10am. These videos are suitable for children who can blend and read words such as 'fish', 'chat' and 'rain'. They are now focusing on phase 4 sounds and reviewing previous sounds in these videos. 

Today's lesson: Lesson 59...

Learning to blend videos are suitable for children who need to practise blending sounds in order to read words.

 Phase 4 sounds 

After learning phase 3 sounds, we move onto phase 4 sounds. If you would like to look at the phase 4 sounds I have added the sound mat and a youtube video to help say the sounds. These are all sounds that you have already learned, but we blend some of them together to make new sounds.

 

e.g. ‘s’ and ‘t’ blended together is ‘st’ like in the word nest- n e st----> nest

Hi Reception. How are you all doing today? The weather was much better yesterday wasn't it. Hopefully you were able to get outside. Maybe you made a leaf animal.

 Literacy challenge - sentence practice (for today)

I wonder if you could have a go at writing some sentences about the picture below. If you find that tricky, perhaps you could write some words or phonic sounds that are in the words. Remember to use your phonics sound mats and high frequency words to help you. 

Remember that the sentence needs to start with a capital letter and you need a full stop at the end of the sentence.

Hi Reception. How are you all doing today? I hope you are all well and that you had a really lovely weekend. 

 


This is the last week of school before we break up for the Summer holidays. I can't quite believe it! It has been a very strange end to the year... Mrs. Barnett and I are so sad that we don't get to see you all in our classroom before you move to Year One, but we won't be far away and we will still see you lots! smiley 

 

I hope you all have a lovely Summer break with your families.

 

The activities will be posted Monday-Thursday this week as Friday is the start of the Summer holiday.

 

I am going to post the usual activities, but also some transition activities to help you think about moving from Reception to Year One.

 

There are lots of activities on this page that you can explore, but here are your activity suggestions for today...

 

The Literacy, Maths and Phonics will change on a daily basis, the other activities are suggestions for the week! 

 

You don't have to complete them all.

Please feel free to complete as many as you wish to/are able to do. 

 Literacy challenge - sentence practice (for today)

I wonder if you could have a go at writing some sentences about the picture using the word mat below. If you find that tricky, perhaps you could write some words or phonic sounds that are in the words. Remember to use your phonics sound mats and high frequency words to help you. 

Remember that the sentence needs to start with a capital letter and you need a full stop at the end of the sentence. 

 Literacy - story activities (for this week)

This week we’re going to look at the story of Chalk by Bill Thomson! This is a book without words... It's a fantastic story! I wonder if you can think of some words to go with the pictures. It's all about MAGIC chalk! Why not have a look at the story on Youtube. I have also added a link to a little video showing you when I found some MAGIC CHALK in our outdoor area at school. How exciting! I decided to draw a picture using the chalk, though I think you'll agree that I maybe chose the wrong thing to draw... Check it out! laugh

Chalk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgMeMnygVn0

Miss Hand's Chalk - https://our-lady-and-st-rose-of-lima-catholic-primary-school.primarysite.media/media/miss-hands-chalk

 

Here are some ideas linked to the story that you might like to do this week... (remember you don't have to do them all, just do what you want to/are able to do). There are word mats to help you!

 

1. Sequence the story - draw pictures of the story in the right order. You don’t have to draw absolutely everything that happened in the story, you can just pick the key events. Think about what happened at the beginning, middle and end…

2. Draw a story map of the story… Again, just try and think of the key events in the story. I wonder if you can retell the story of Chalk... 

3. Write a sentence/some sentences/the story of Chalk - It doesn't have to be long. Try and use some story language, e.g. Once upon a time...Next...Then...Finally...One Day...The End. Use your phonics sound mat and your high frequency words! There is a 'Chalk' writing frame below if you would like to use it.

4. If you had magic chalk like the one in the story, what would you draw? What might it do when it 'comes to life' and what might you do? There is a 'Chalk' writing frame below if you would like to use it.

5. If you have some chalk at home, why not have a go at drawing some different things that you'd like to magically 'come to life'...smiley

 

Phonics

Phonics - Letters and Sounds (for today)

For phonics, please continue to watch the  Letters and Sounds videos 

There are 3 options - The videos to help with blending sounds have now finished.

 

1. If your child has been watching the blending videos and is now confident with blending sounds, then I would recommend going back to watch the Reception phonics videos from the start - Reception - Lesson 1.

2. If your child still needs help with blending, revisit the blending videos and go back to Blending - Lesson 1.

3. The Reception videos will be continuing as normal at 10am. They are currently reviewing sounds that have been learned and extending the learning. If your child has been able to access the Reception videos, please continue with them. Enjoy!

Letters and Sounds-Parent and carers guide to tricky words- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQmtOXbf3-0

Daily phonics lessons for Reception are posted on Youtube at 10am. These videos are suitable for children who can blend and read words such as 'fish', 'chat' and 'rain'. They are now focusing on phase 4 sounds and reviewing previous sounds in these videos. 

Today's lesson: Lesson 56...

Learning to blend videos are suitable for children who need to practise blending sounds in order to read words.

 Phase 4 sounds 

After learning phase 3 sounds, we move onto phase 4 sounds. If you would like to look at the phase 4 sounds I have added the sound mat and a youtube video to help say the sounds. These are all sounds that you have already learned, but we blend some of them together to make new sounds.

 

e.g. ‘s’ and ‘t’ blended together is ‘st’ like in the word nest- n e st----> nest

This week we’re going to look at the story of The Blue Balloon by Mick Inkpen! Why not have a read of the story. I’ve added the youtube video link if you don’t have the story at home.

The Blue Balloon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOSccQ6rMzs

 

Here are some ideas linked to the story that you might like to do this week... (remember you don't have to do them all, just do what you want to/are able to do). There are word mats to help you!

 

1. Sequence the story using the document below (cut up and stick in the correct order) or draw pictures in the right order. You don’t have to draw absolutely everything that happened in the story, you can just pick the key events. Think about what happened at the beginning, middle and end…

2. Draw a story map of the story… Again, just try and think of the key events in the story. I wonder if you can retell the story of The Blue Balloon using language from the story. 

3. Write a sentence/some sentences/the story of The Blue Balloon - It doesn't have to be long. Try and use some story language, e.g. Once upon a time...Next...Then...Finally...One Day...The End. Use the word mat below to help you, your phonics sound mat and your high frequency words! There is a 'Blue balloon' writing frame below if you would like to use it.

4. Create puppets and act it out.

5. Paint your own story stones to retell the story. Stones/pebbles painted with the characters from the story.

6. Design your own balloon like at the end of the story. Can you write a sentence to describe it? Or can you label it with sounds/words? There is a balloon template sheet below if you would like to use it or there is a writing frame where you can draw and write.

7. If you had a magic balloon like the one in the story. Where do you think it would take you? Would it take you to space like in the story? At the shop I can get... There is a 'Blue balloon' writing frame below if you would like to use it.

Another scavenger hunt for you.  If you're able to, perhaps you'd like to see what flying insects you can find outside!

 

Understanding the world... (for the whole week)

This week we are going to explore different animals and their habitats.

I wonder if you could choose an animal, maybe your favourite animal and find out a little more about it.

- Can you find out some interesting facts about it?

- Where does the animal live (what is its habitat)?

- Do you find them in a warm or a cold country?

 

My favourite animal is a penguin. Did you know that the Daddy penguins keep the eggs warm until they hatch...They do not sit on them though. They stand up and balance the eggs on their feet and cover them with feathered skin to keep them warm.

I wonder if you'd like to have a go at singing the song 'The wise man built his house upon a rock' at home? We have sung this at school lots. I wonder if you can remember the actions too?

If you would like to, perhaps you could write a bit about the story. I have attached a word mat to help you.

Forest School

Another scavenger hunt for you. smiley If you're able to, perhaps you'd like to go on a leaf hunt! I wonder what you'll find. Enjoy! smiley

 

Understanding the world... (for the whole week)

This week we are going to explore different animals and their habitats.

I wonder if you could choose an animal, maybe your favourite animal and find out a little more about it.

- Can you find out some interesting facts about it?

- Where does the animal live (what is its habitat)?

- Do you find them in a warm or a cold country?

 

My favourite animal is a penguin. Did you know that the Daddy penguins keep the eggs warm until they hatch...They do not sit on them though. They stand up and balance the eggs on their feet and cover them with feathered skin to keep them warm. 

 

Today's recommendations...

1. Everybody Worries - A picture book for children who are worried about Coronavirus. Click on the link below to have a look at the book.

2. If you're able to, I wonder if you'd like to have a go at making a giant bubble wand...
Take a look at the video to see how to make one! 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTQIgVFvFYE

   

 

Please continue to add other photos and messages about what you have been up to, not just my suggested activities. I look forward to hearing from you. I hope you are all well and you are all continuing to stay safe with your families at home.

 

Take care, Miss Hand smiley

Hi Reception. How are you all doing today? I hope you are well. Did anyone make the giant bubble wand? The weather wasn't great yesterday, so maybe another day this week would be better. smiley

 

There are lots of activities on this page that you can explore, but here are your activity suggestions for today...

 

The Literacy, Maths and Phonics will change on a daily basis, the other activities are suggestions for the week! 

 

You don't have to complete them all.

Please feel free to complete as many as you wish to/are able to do. 

 Literacy challenge - sentence practice (for today)

I wonder if you could have a go at writing some sentences about Summer using the word mat below. If you find that tricky, perhaps you could write some words or phonic sounds that are in the words. Remember to use your phonics sound mats and high frequency words to help you. 

Remember that the sentence needs to start with a capital letter and you need a full stop at the end of the sentence. 

 Literacy - story activities (for this week)

This week we’re going to look at the story of The Blue Balloon by Mick Inkpen! Why not have a read of the story. I’ve added the youtube video link if you don’t have the story at home.

The Blue Balloon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOSccQ6rMzs

 

Here are some ideas linked to the story that you might like to do this week... (remember you don't have to do them all, just do what you want to/are able to do). There are word mats to help you!

 

1. Sequence the story using the document below (cut up and stick in the correct order) or draw pictures in the right order. You don’t have to draw absolutely everything that happened in the story, you can just pick the key events. Think about what happened at the beginning, middle and end…

2. Draw a story map of the story… Again, just try and think of the key events in the story. I wonder if you can retell the story of The Blue Balloon using language from the story. 

3. Write a sentence/some sentences/the story of The Blue Balloon - It doesn't have to be long. Try and use some story language, e.g. Once upon a time...Next...Then...Finally...One Day...The End. Use the word mat below to help you, your phonics sound mat and your high frequency words! There is a 'Blue balloon' writing frame below if you would like to use it.

4. Create puppets and act it out.

5. Paint your own story stones to retell the story. Stones/pebbles painted with the characters from the story.

6. Design your own balloon like at the end of the story. Can you write a sentence to describe it? Or can you label it with sounds/words? There is a balloon template sheet below if you would like to use it or there is a writing frame where you can draw and write.

7. If you had a magic balloon like the one in the story. Where do you think it would take you? Would it take you to space like in the story? At the shop I can get... There is a 'Blue balloon' writing frame below if you would like to use it.

 

Phonics

Phonics - Letters and Sounds (for today)

For phonics, please continue to watch the  Letters and Sounds videos 

There are 3 options - The videos to help with blending sounds have now finished.

 

1. If your child has been watching the blending videos and is now confident with blending sounds, then I would recommend going back to watch the Reception phonics videos from the start - Reception - Lesson 1.

2. If your child still needs help with blending, revisit the blending videos and go back to Blending - Lesson 1.

3. The Reception videos will be continuing as normal at 10am. They are currently reviewing sounds that have been learned and extending the learning. If your child has been able to access the Reception videos, please continue with them. Enjoy!

Letters and Sounds-Parent and carers guide to tricky words- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQmtOXbf3-0

Daily phonics lessons for Reception are posted on Youtube at 10am. These videos are suitable for children who can blend and read words such as 'fish', 'chat' and 'rain'. They are now focusing on phase 4 sounds and reviewing previous sounds in these videos. 

Today's lesson: Lesson 53...

Learning to blend videos are suitable for children who need to practise blending sounds in order to read words.

 Phase 4 sounds 

After learning phase 3 sounds, we move onto phase 4 sounds. If you would like to look at the phase 4 sounds I have added the sound mat and a youtube video to help say the sounds. These are all sounds that you have already learned, but we blend some of them together to make new sounds.

 

e.g. ‘s’ and ‘t’ blended together is ‘st’ like in the word nest- n e st----> nest

Phase 4 sounds video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VR_IgfIgz10

 

Maths challenge (for today)

I wonder if you'd like to have a go at singing the song 'The wise man built his house upon a rock' at home? We have sung this at school lots. I wonder if you can remember the actions too?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eu5bBDRpzPM

 

If you would like to, perhaps you could write a bit about the story. I have attached a word mat to help you.

Forest School

If you're able to, perhaps you'd like to go on a bug hunt...I wonder what you might find!

 

Understanding the world... (for the whole week)

This week we are going to explore different animals and their habitats.

I wonder if you could choose an animal, maybe your favourite animal and find out a little more about it.

- Can you find out some interesting facts about it?

- Where does the animal live (what is its habitat)?

- Do you find them in a warm or a cold country?

 

My favourite animal is a penguin. Did you know that the Daddy penguins keep the eggs warm until they hatch...They do not sit on them though. They stand up and balance the eggs on their feet and cover them with feathered skin to keep them warm. smiley

 

Today's recommendations...

1. Another lovely performance from The Little Angel Theatre. This time...Moon River. Enjoy! smiley

Hi Reception. How are you all doing today? I hope you are all well. I hope you all have a really lovely weekend with your families. smiley

 

There are lots of activities on this page that you can explore, but here are your activity suggestions for today...

 

The Literacy, Maths and Phonics will change on a daily basis, the other activities are suggestions for the week! 

 

You don't have to complete them all.

Please feel free to complete as many as you wish to/are able to do. 

 Literacy challenge - sentence practice (for today)

I wonder if you could have a go at writing some sentences about the picture below. If you find that tricky, perhaps you could write some words or phonic sounds that are in the words. Remember to use your phonics sound mats and high frequency words to help you. There is a small word mat to help too.

Remember that the sentence needs to start with a capital letter and you need a full stop at the end of the sentence. 

 Literacy - story activities (for this week)

This week we’re going to look at the story of Supertato! Why not have a read of the story. I’ve added the youtube video link if you don’t have the story at home.

Supertatohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rze89HB9u8g

 

Here are some ideas linked to the story that you might like to do this week... (remember you don't have to do them all, just do what you want to/are able to do). There are word mats to help you!

 

1. Sequence the story using the document below (cut up and stick in the correct order) or draw pictures in the right order. You don’t have to draw absolutely everything that happened in the story, you can just pick the key events. Think about what happened at the beginning, middle and end…

2. Draw a story map of the story… Again, just try and think of the key events in the story. I wonder if you can retell the story of Supertato using language from the story. 

3. Write a sentence/some sentences/the story of Supertato - It doesn't have to be long. Try and use some story language, e.g. Once upon a time...Next...Then...Finally...One Day...The End. Use the word mat below to help you, your phonics sound mat and your high frequency words! There is a writing frame below if you would like to use it.

4. Create puppets and act it out.

5. Paint your own story stones to retell the story. Stones/pebbles painted with the characters from the story.

6. Write a shopping list... There is a Supertato shopping list frame below if you would like to use it.

7. Write some sentences about what you can get at the shop. At the shop I can get... There is a Supertato writing frame below if you would like to use it.

8. Decorate a potato just like Supertato using the picture 'cut-outs' below.

 

Phonics

Phonics - Letters and Sounds (for today)

For phonics, please continue to watch the  Letters and Sounds videos 

There are 3 options - The videos to help with blending sounds have now finished.

 

1. If your child has been watching the blending videos and is now confident with blending sounds, then I would recommend going back to watch the Reception phonics videos from the start - Reception - Lesson 1.

2. If your child still needs help with blending, revisit the blending videos and go back to Blending - Lesson 1.

3. The Reception videos will be continuing as normal at 10am. They are currently reviewing sounds that have been learned and extending the learning. If your child has been able to access the Reception videos, please continue with them. Enjoy!

Letters and Sounds-Parent and carers guide to tricky words- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQmtOXbf3-0

Daily phonics lessons for Reception are posted on Youtube at 10am. These videos are suitable for children who can blend and read words such as 'fish', 'chat' and 'rain'. They are now focusing on phase 4 sounds in these videos. 

Today's lesson: Lesson 50...

Learning to blend videos are suitable for children who need to practise blending sounds in order to read words.

 Phase 4 sounds 

After learning phase 3 sounds, we move onto phase 4 sounds. If you would like to look at the phase 4 sounds I have added the sound mat and a youtube video to help say the sounds. These are all sounds that you have already learned, but we blend some of them together to make new sounds.

 

e.g. ‘s’ and ‘t’ blended together is ‘st’ like in the word nest- n e st----> nest

Understanding the world... (for the whole week)

This week I thought we could link our learning to the story, Oliver's vegetables. We are going to have a think about food that is healthy and food that is unhealthy.... 

2 options...

1. Can you use the document below to cut out the pictures of the food and sort into 2 categories - healthy or unhealthy. Perhaps you could try and label the food too?
2. Can you draw pictures of food that is healthy/food that is unhealthy. Perhaps you could try and label the food too?

 

Today's recommendations...

1. NHS Charities together - 

The BIGGEST thank you ever 

- Sunday 5th July 2020 at 5pm

A moment of thanks and connection on July 5th when we take part in one last country-wide clap of thanks on our doorsteps.

Everybody across the country is being encouraged to come together on the birthday of the NHS, Sunday 5th July, to thank not only NHS staff but all key workers, good neighbours and all those who are helping to get us through this difficult period.

 

There are some posters below if you would like to colour one (or more) of them in to say thank you. Who would you like to say thank you to?

The Wildlife Trust’s 30 days wild campaign (whole week)

The Wildlife Trust’s 30 days wild campaign has now finished. Well done to all the children who have had a go at the challenges. I've loved seeing your photos of all the different things you have done. smiley

 

Understanding the world... (for the whole week)

This week I thought we could link our learning to the story, Oliver's vegetables. We are going to have a think about food that is healthy and food that is unhealthy.... 

2 options...

1. Can you use the document below to cut out the pictures of the food and sort into 2 categories - healthy or unhealthy. Perhaps you could try and label the food too?
2. Can you draw pictures of food that is healthy/food that is unhealthy. Perhaps you could try and label the food too?

 

Today's recommendations...

1. Another lovely performance from The Little Angel Theatre - Don't Worry, Little Crab. Enjoy! smiley https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzWZfaSiXkA 

 

Please continue to add other photos and messages about what you have been up to, not just my suggested activities. I look forward to hearing from you. I hope you are all well and you are all continuing to stay safe with your families at home.

 

Take care, Miss Hand smiley

Hi Reception. How are you all doing today? I hope you are all well. smiley 

 

I am still trying to sort the issues with blog.

I will get back to you soon when it is hopefully sorted.

Some of you have messaged to say that you are unable to upload photos. I am trying to sort this and will get back to you about it as soon as possible. Sorry you are unable to show me what you have been doing on some of the days, but I know you are all working super hard. 

 

There are lots of activities on this page that you can explore, but here are your activity suggestions for today...

 

The Literacy, Maths and Phonics will change on a daily basis, the other activities are suggestions for the week! 

 

You don't have to complete them all.

Please feel free to complete as many as you wish to/are able to do. 

 Literacy challenge - sentence practice (for today)

I wonder if you could have a go at writing some sentences about one or both of these pictures. If you find that tricky, perhaps you could write some words or phonic sounds that are in the words. Remember to use your phonics sound mats and high frequency words to help you. There is a small word mat to help too.

Remember that the sentence needs to start with a capital letter and you need a full stop at the end of the sentence. 

 Literacy - story activities (for this week)

This week we’re going to look at the story of Supertato! Why not have a read of the story. I’ve added the youtube video link if you don’t have the story at home.

Supertatohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rze89HB9u8g

 

Here are some ideas linked to the story that you might like to do this week... (remember you don't have to do them all, just do what you want to/are able to do). There are word mats to help you!

 

1. Sequence the story using the document below (cut up and stick in the correct order) or draw pictures in the right order. You don’t have to draw absolutely everything that happened in the story, you can just pick the key events. Think about what happened at the beginning, middle and end…

2. Draw a story map of the story… Again, just try and think of the key events in the story. I wonder if you can retell the story of Supertato using language from the story. 

3. Write a sentence/some sentences/the story of Supertato - It doesn't have to be long. Try and use some story language, e.g. Once upon a time...Next...Then...Finally...One Day...The End. Use the word mat below to help you, your phonics sound mat and your high frequency words! There is a writing frame below if you would like to use it.

4. Create puppets and act it out.

5. Paint your own story stones to retell the story. Stones/pebbles painted with the characters from the story.

6. Write a shopping list... There is a Supertato shopping list frame below if you would like to use it.

7. Write some sentences about what you can get at the shop. At the shop I can get... There is a Supertato writing frame below if you would like to use it.

8. Decorate a potato just like Supertato using the picture 'cut-outs' below.

 

Phonics

Phonics - Letters and Sounds (for today)

For phonics, please continue to watch the  Letters and Sounds videos 

There are 3 options - The videos to help with blending sounds have now finished.

 

1. If your child has been watching the blending videos and is now confident with blending sounds, then I would recommend going back to watch the Reception phonics videos from the start - Reception - Lesson 1.

2. If your child still needs help with blending, revisit the blending videos and go back to Blending - Lesson 1.

3. The Reception videos will be continuing as normal at 10am. They are currently reviewing sounds that have been learned and extending the learning. If your child has been able to access the Reception videos, please continue with them. Enjoy!

Letters and Sounds-Parent and carers guide to tricky words- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQmtOXbf3-0

Daily phonics lessons for Reception are posted on Youtube at 10am. These videos are suitable for children who can blend and read words such as 'fish', 'chat' and 'rain'. They are now focusing on phase 4 sounds in these videos. 

Today's lesson: Lesson 47...

Learning to blend videos are suitable for children who need to practise blending sounds in order to read words.

 Phase 4 sounds 

After learning phase 3 sounds, we move onto phase 4 sounds. If you would like to look at the phase 4 sounds I have added the sound mat and a youtube video to help say the sounds. These are all sounds that you have already learned, but we blend some of them together to make new sounds.

 

e.g. ‘s’ and ‘t’ blended together is ‘st’ like in the word nest- n e st----> nest

Understanding the world... (for the whole week)

This week's Understanding the world work is linked to our story - Whatever Next!

If you are able to, I wonder if you'd like to decorate and make your own bottle rocket.

 

There is a video to help you make it here: https://www.rigb.org/families/experimental/fizzy-bottle-rockets#:~:text=About%20this%20activity&text=By%20putting%20fizzy%20headache%2Fvitamin,ground%2C%20pushing%20the%20bottle%20upwards.

 

Please find an activity information sheet here: https://www.rigb.org/docs/fizzybottlerockets_infosheet_v2_0.pdf

 

 If you would like to do this, PLEASE make sure that you do this activity with an adult! 

 

Alternatively, you might like to research space, rockets and the planets. You could make your own planet/planets using junk modelling or maybe you could paint some different planets. Perhaps you could even try some star gazing...

 

 

Today's recommendations...

1. Make a minibeast mask - Taken from the woodland trust website - "If your kids are fans of minibeasts, this is a super fun craft for you to do together, while teaching them all about creepy crawlies. Cut a paper plate in half, or cut out a semi-circle from some card. Make two eye holes and cut out a notch for your child's nose. Now decide which minibeast they'd like to be and get creative with the decorating! You could paint your mask, stick on scraps of paper or fabric, or even use natural materials from your garden. When you've finished, punch a hole at either side and attach some string so your child can wear it. Afterwards, why not do some research about your child's minibeast and see what you can find out?"  

Please continue to add other photos and messages about what you have been up to, not just my suggested activities. I look forward to hearing from you. I hope you are all well and you are all continuing to stay safe with your families at home.

 

Take care, Miss Hand smiley

Whatever next pictures for sequencing

25.06.20

Hi Reception. How are you all doing today? What a beautiful, but very hot day we had yesterday. It's meant to be another scorcher again today. smiley

 

There are lots of activities on this page that you can explore, but here are your activity suggestions for today...

 

The Literacy, Maths and Phonics will change on a daily basis, the other activities are suggestions for the week! 

 

You don't have to complete them all.

Please feel free to complete as many as you wish to/are able to do. 

 Literacy challenge - sentence practice (for today)

I wonder if you could have a go at writing some sentences about this picture. If you find that tricky, perhaps you could write some words or phonic sounds that are in the words. Remember to use your phonics sound mats and high frequency words to help you. 

Remember that the sentence needs to start with a capital letter and you need a full stop at the end of the sentence. 

 Literacy - story activities (for this week)

This week we’re going to look at the story of Whatever Next! Why not have a read of the story. I’ve added the youtube video link if you don’t have the story at home.

Whatever Next - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6c5cb0u0rPM

 

Here are some ideas linked to the story that you might like to do this week... (remember you don't have to do them all, just do what you want to/are able to do). There are word mats to help you!

 

1. Sequence the story using the document below (cut up and stick in the correct order) or draw pictures in the right order. You don’t have to draw absolutely everything that happened in the story, you can just pick the key events. Think about what happened at the beginning, middle and end…

2. Draw a story map of the story… Again, just try and think of the key events in the story. I wonder if you can retell the story of Whatever Next using language from the story. 

3. Write a sentence/some sentences/the story of Whatever next - It doesn't have to be long. Try and use some story language, e.g. Once upon a time...Next...Then...Finally...One Day...The End. Use the word mat below to help you, your phonics sound mat and your high frequency words!

4. Create puppets and act it out.

5. Paint your own story stones to retell the story. Stones/pebbles painted with the characters from the story.

6. Discuss what you would pack for a journey to the moon and explain why you would need those items. Perhaps you could write a list of all the things you would pack in your bag to take to the moon.

7. Design and draw your very own rocket. Can you write a sentence to describe it? What colour is it? What does it do? 

 

Phonics

Phonics - Letters and Sounds (for today)

For phonics, please continue to watch the  Letters and Sounds videos 

There are 3 options - The videos to help with blending sounds have now finished.

 

1. If your child has been watching the blending videos and is now confident with blending sounds, then I would recommend going back to watch the Reception phonics videos from the start - Reception - Lesson 1.

2. If your child still needs help with blending, revisit the blending videos and go back to Blending - Lesson 1.

3. The Reception videos will be continuing as normal at 10am. They are currently reviewing sounds that have been learned and extending the learning. If your child has been able to access the Reception videos, please continue with them. Enjoy!

Letters and Sounds-Parent and carers guide to tricky words- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQmtOXbf3-0

Daily phonics lessons for Reception are posted on Youtube at 10am. These videos are suitable for children who can blend and read words such as 'fish', 'chat' and 'rain'. They are now focusing on phase 4 sounds in these videos. 

Today's lesson: Lesson 44...

Learning to blend videos are suitable for children who need to practise blending sounds in order to read words.

 Phase 4 sounds 

After learning phase 3 sounds, we move onto phase 4 sounds. If you would like to look at the phase 4 sounds I have added the sound mat and a youtube video to help say the sounds. These are all sounds that you have already learned, but we blend some of them together to make new sounds.

 

e.g. ‘s’ and ‘t’ blended together is ‘st’ like in the word nest- n e st----> nest

If you would like to, perhaps you could write a bit about the story. I have attached a word mat to help you.

 

Creative activities (for the whole week)

This week's creative activities are linked to our Bible story - Noah's Ark. Perhaps you could paint a picture of the Ark and 2 of every animal of your choice. Maybe you'd like to make a picture using junk modelling. You could also make a beautiful rainbow picture. Take a look at the ideas below.

You do not have to complete these challenges, please don’t feel you have to. They are just suggestions of activities that you could do this week.

Today's recommendations...

1. Stick weaving - With the continued lovely weather I wonder if you'd like to have a go at this...

This natural craft is a wonderful way to get creative. Find a Y-shaped stick and wrap some wool around it to make a loom. Then gather natural items from your garden or while you're doing your daily exercise and weave them into it. Just make sure you don't pick wild flowers or pull bits off trees - look for fallen petals and leaves instead.

  

Please continue to add other photos and messages about what you have been up to, not just my suggested activities. I look forward to hearing from you. I hope you are all well and you are all continuing to stay safe with your families at home.

If you would like to, perhaps you could write a bit about the story. I have attached a word mat to help you.

 

Creative activities (for the whole week)

This week's creative activities are linked to our Bible story - Noah's Ark. Perhaps you could paint a picture of the Ark and 2 of every animal of your choice. Maybe you'd like to make a picture using junk modelling. You could also make a beautiful rainbow picture. Take a look at the ideas below.

Whatever Next pictures for sequencing...

22.06.20 

Hi Reception. How are you all doing today? I hope you all had a really lovely weekend. I hope you managed to enjoy the sunny weather. It's meant to be fabulous this week, so I hope you can safely get outside and enjoy it! smiley

 

There are lots of activities on this page that you can explore, but here are your activity suggestions for today...

 

The Literacy, Maths and Phonics will change on a daily basis, the other activities are suggestions for the week! 

 

You don't have to complete them all.

Please feel free to complete as many as you wish to/are able to do. 

 Literacy challenge - sentence practice (for today)

I wonder if you could have a go at writing some sentences about this picture. If you find that tricky, perhaps you could write some words or phonic sounds that are in the words. Remember to use your phonics sound mats and high frequency words to help you. There is a small word mat to help you with some of the words. 

 

Remember that the sentence needs to start with a capital letter and you need a full stop at the end of the sentence. 

      

 Literacy - story activities (for this week)

This week we’re going to look at the story of Whatever Next! Why not have a read of the story. I’ve added the youtube video link if you don’t have the story at home.

Whatever Next - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6c5cb0u0rPM

 

Here are some ideas linked to the story that you might like to do this week... (remember you don't have to do them all, just do what you want to/are able to do). There are word mats to help you!

 

1. Sequence the story using the document below (cut up and stick in the correct order) or draw pictures in the right order. You don’t have to draw absolutely everything that happened in the story, you can just pick the key events. Think about what happened at the beginning, middle and end…

2. Draw a story map of the story… Again, just try and think of the key events in the story. I wonder if you can retell the story of Whatever Next using language from the story. 

3. Write a sentence/some sentences/the story of Whatever next - It doesn't have to be long. Try and use some story language, e.g. Once upon a time...Next...Then...Finally...One Day...The End. Use the word mat below to help you, your phonics sound mat and your high frequency words!

4. Create puppets and act it out.

5. Paint your own story stones to retell the story. Stones/pebbles painted with the characters from the story.

6. Discuss what you would pack for a journey to the moon and explain why you would need those items. Perhaps you could write a list of all the things you would pack in your bag to take to the moon.

7. Design and draw your very own rocket. Can you write a sentence to describe it? What colour is it? What does it do? 

 

 

Phonics

Phonics - Letters and Sounds (for today)

For phonics, please continue to watch the  Letters and Sounds videos 

There are 3 options - The videos to help with blending sounds have now finished.

 

1. If your child has been watching the blending videos and is now confident with blending sounds, then I would recommend going back to watch the Reception phonics videos from the start - Reception - Lesson 1.

2. If your child still needs help with blending, revisit the blending videos and go back to Blending - Lesson 1.

3. The Reception videos will be continuing as normal at 10am. They are currently reviewing sounds that have been learned and extending the learning. If your child has been able to access the Reception videos, please continue with them. Enjoy!

Letters and Sounds-Parent and carers guide to tricky words- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQmtOXbf3-0

Daily phonics lessons for Reception are posted on Youtube at 10am. These videos are suitable for children who can blend and read words such as 'fish', 'chat' and 'rain'. They are now focusing on phase 4 sounds in these videos. 

Today's lesson: Lesson 41...

Learning to blend videos are suitable for children who need to practise blending sounds in order to read words.

Letters and Sounds for home and school Youtube pagehttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCP_FbjYUP_UtldV2K_-niWw/videos

 Phase 4 sounds 

After learning phase 3 sounds, we move onto phase 4 sounds. If you would like to look at the phase 4 sounds I have added the sound mat and a youtube video to help say the sounds. These are all sounds that you have already learned, but we blend some of them together to make new sounds.

 

e.g. ‘s’ and ‘t’ blended together is ‘st’ like in the word nest- n e st----> nest

Phase 4 sounds video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VR_IgfIgz10

 

Maths challenge (for today)

Today's recommendations...

1. The Daily Mile is a campaign to get children walking, jogging or running a mile each day. That means being on the move for around 15 minutes. When we are spending more time at home it can be easy to get out of the habit of exercising, but it has so many benefits for our body and mind. Can you do a daily mile? You can find out all about the campaign here: https://thedailymile.co.uk/

 

2. Today is 'Multi Media Monday'. Miss Murphy has kindly found some new computing resources that she has found for you all.  

- Check out the STEM computing resources - https://www.stem.org.uk/home-learning/primary#computing

- Fancy creating your own game? Check out the ProProfs website. You can make your own crosswords, word searches, hangman and jigsaw games - https://www.proprofs.com/games/create-game/

 

3. National School Sport Week at home 2020 - "The annual National School Sport Week campaign takes place in the last week of June every year to celebrate the important role of Physical Education and school sport in enhancing young people's wellbeing. This year, the Youth Sport Trust has teamed up with Sky Sports to run a national campaign which will aim to unite the country - families, schools, sport and businesses - in a celebration of the power of sport to bring people together, even during isolation." Check out the website for more information:

 Literacy challenge - sentence practice (for today)

Something a bit different this week. I will post a picture each day. The words next to the picture have been scrambled and are in the wrong order. I wonder if you can read the words and put the words in the correct order to make the sentence - can you write the sentence?

Remember that the sentence needs to start with a capital letter and you need a full stop at the end of the sentence. 

You might want to try and think of your own sentence for the picture too?

      

 Literacy - story activities (for this week)

This week we’re going to look at the story of Elmer! Why not have a read of the story. I’ve added the youtube video link if you don’t have the story at home.

2. Draw a story map of the story… Again, just try and think of the key events in the story. I wonder if you can retell the story of Elmer using language from the story.

3. Write a sentence or more about Elmer the elephant. Can you describe him? Elmer is….patchwork. Elmer is…red and yellow and…. Elmer is an elephant. Elmer has fun.

4. Draw/decorate your very own elephant like Elmer. I wonder if you can write about your elephant to describe them? What colour is your elephant? Does it have a name? What does your elephant do? Are they funny like Elmer?

5. Write the story of Elmer. It doesn't have to be long.

Try and use some story language, e.g.

Once upon a time...Next...Then...Finally...One Day...The End.

 

Elmer teaches us that it is OK to be different. Everyone is special and unique. 

God made each and every one of us special and unique! 

 

We know that God made us all special

Thank you God for making the world...and thank you God for making me, me

3. The Reception videos will be continuing as normal at 10am. They are currently reviewing sounds that have been learned and extending the learning. If your child has been able to access the Reception videos, please continue with them. Enjoy!

Letters and Sounds-Parent and carers guide to tricky words- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQmtOXbf3-0

Daily phonics lessons for Reception are posted on Youtube at 10am. These videos are suitable for children who can blend and read words such as 'fish', 'chat' and 'rain'. They are now focusing on phase 4 sounds in these videos. 

Today's lesson: Lesson 39...

Learning to blend videos are suitable for children who need to practise blending sounds in order to read words.

 Phase 4 sounds 

After learning phase 3 sounds, we move onto phase 4 sounds. If you would like to look at the phase 4 sounds I have added the sound mat and a youtube video to help say the sounds. These are all sounds that you have already learned, but we blend some of them together to make new sounds.

 

e.g. ‘s’ and ‘t’ blended together is ‘st’ like in the word nest- n e st----> nest

Hi Reception. How are you all doing today? What a change in the weather! Did you hear the thunder and see the lightning? 

There are lots of activities on this page that you can explore, but here are your activity suggestions for today...

The Literacy, Maths and Phonics will change on a daily basis, the other activities are suggestions for the week! 

 

You don't have to complete them all.

Please feel free to complete as many as you wish to/are able to do. 

 Literacy challenge - sentence practice (for today)

Something a bit different this week. I will post a picture each day. The words next to the picture have been scrambled and are in the wrong order. I wonder if you can read the words and put the words in the correct order to make the sentence - can you write the sentence?

Remember that the sentence needs to start with a capital letter and you need a full stop at the end of the sentence. 

You might want to try and think of your own sentence for the picture too?

      

 Literacy - story activities (for this week)

This week we’re going to look at the story of Elmer! Why not have a read of the story. I’ve added the youtube video link if you don’t have the story at home.

Elmer - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZlNp-8zOgk

 

Here are some ideas linked to the story that you might like to do this week... (remember you don't have to do them all, just do what you want to/are able to do). There are word mats to help you!

 

1. Sequence the story using the document below (cut up and stick in the correct order) or draw pictures in the right order. You don’t have to draw absolutely everything that happened in the story, you can just pick the key events. Think about what happened at the beginning, middle and end…

2. Draw a story map of the story… Again, just try and think of the key events in the story. I wonder if you can retell the story of Elmer using language from the story.

3. Write a sentence or more about Elmer the elephant. Can you describe him? Elmer is….patchwork. Elmer is…red and yellow and…. Elmer is an elephant. Elmer has fun.

4. Draw/decorate your very own elephant like Elmer. I wonder if you can write about your elephant to describe them? What colour is your elephant? Does it have a name? What does your elephant do? Are they funny like Elmer?

5. Write the story of Elmer. It doesn't have to be long.

Try and use some story language, e.g.

Once upon a time...Next...Then...Finally...One Day...The End.

 

Elmer teaches us that it is OK to be different. Everyone is special and unique. 

God made each and every one of us special and unique! 

 

We know that God made us all special

Thank you God for making the world...and thank you God for making me, me

 

“We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us”. Romans 12:6

 

We “praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well”. Psalm 139:14

 Phase 4 sounds 

After learning phase 3 sounds, we move onto phase 4 sounds. If you would like to look at the phase 4 sounds I have added the sound mat and a youtube video to help say the sounds. These are all sounds that you have already learned, but we blend some of them together to make new sounds.

 

e.g. ‘s’ and ‘t’ blended together is ‘st’ like in the word nest- n e st----> nest
