A message from Miss Hand...

Hi Reception, 

How are you all today? I hope you all had a good Wednesday. I don't know if you've seen the weather forecast for today, but we might be getting some snow again. How exciting! I LOVE snow and I know lots of you do too! smiley Fingers crossed! Lots more of you have been going on the blog and also on J2blast - I'm glad you're enjoying this! 

Well done once again for all your hard work at home and on the blog. Mrs. Barnett and I think you're doing such fantastic work! Please continue to post on the blog if you are able to. I am loving seeing your photos/videos and messages!

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 13th, what is today? What is one more than 13... 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

Basic skills

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 4

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 4 and complete the activity!

Collective Worship

Please click on the document below to see this week's Collective Worship. Please look at Thursday - 1.) Daily devotion. 2.) Prayer time (I wonder if you can say or write your own prayer with adult). 3.) Practise singing the Hail Mary with sign language (video below).

Today we are continuing our new story of The Gingerbread Man. I have added the story powerpoint below.

Today I would like you to read the story and then have a go at filling in one of the Gingerbread Man speech bubbles. He is saying the phrase "Run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man".

There are 4 options (see pictures below). All the resources you need - speech bubble templates, word mat, sound mat and high frequency word table are in one pdf document below. Enjoy! smiley
