Hi Reception, I hope you are all well and keeping safe at home.
I hope you enjoyed your weekend and that you managed to get outside. Did you see the snow?
I have really enjoyed your blog posts. Please keep posting them. I am going to start giving out house points for tasks completed - I have reset the house points back to 0, as we do at the beginning of a new term. The points will be given for certain tasks e.g. completing different subjects, having a go at the word of the day etc.
Please remember that you ebooks on ActiveLearn, maths games on numbots and
spellings on J2blast for you to access too. Enjoy!
If you have any queries about the home learning or if you need any support, please send me an email to the address below - stroseR@olstrose.bham.sch.uk
Thank you for all your support,
Miss Hand and Mrs. Barnett
J2blast - This week's spellings
am, man, mat, map, Pam, Tim, Sam
I have added a new list of spellings on J2blast for you to access. Well done to Luke, Constance, Ruby, Valentina, Arta, Nathan and Nahom who have all been working really hard practising the spellings I set last week.
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 10th, what is today? What is one more than 10... 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. Practise writing your name - If you can already do this, have a go at your surname or even your middle name if you have one.
2. Have a look at the 'I can see document' below. Take a look at Day 1.
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 1and complete the activity!
Please click on the document below to see this week's Collective Worship. Please look at Monday - 1.) Daily devotion. 2.) The Bible story. If you have a Bible at home, perhaps you can read it with an adult.
Today we are starting a new story. Over the next few weeks we are going to focus on a traditional story each week. This week's story is the Gingerbread Man. There will be a little activity each day linked to the story!
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 sequencing the story using key pictures from the story. I wonder if you can retell the story using the key pictures? Think about the key language, e.g.
"Run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man".
Take a look at the slides below. If you have the resources at home, you might like to have a go at one or both the focus activities. I have added some shadow puppet templates below that you might like to use.
Today's end of the day story - Oi Cat! I hope you enjoy it!
