Good morning Reception!

I am going to be making some more phone calls today, so I look forward to speaking to some of you today. Today's end of the day story is called 'Super duper you'. I hope you enjoy it, and well done for all your super duper work! smiley

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 3rd, what is today? What is one more than 3... Perhaps you can talk about the date and weather at home. There is a youtube link of the days of the week song and the months of the year song below. smiley

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. Simple sentence - I wonder if you can write something about the 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 today's word of the day and have a go at the activity if you are able to. 


4. J2blast spellings - Click here to take you to the website/app where you can practise the words.

Please click on the document below to see Thursday's Collective Worship.

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).

Literacy - The Three Little Pigs

Today we are continuing our new story of The Three Little Pigs. 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 imagine that you are the wolf and you are writing a sorry letter to the Three Pigs. Think about what the wolf might want to say sorry for. Did he scare the pigs? What did he do to their houses? You might just like to have a go at writing one sentence. Or if this is a bit tricky, you could just write some sounds/words. Remember you have the story word mat to help you with lots of key words, your high frequency table and your sound mat if you get stuck.

You can start your letter by writing... 

Dear the three pigs or Dear the 3 pigs,

Here are some examples of things you could say sorry for:

I have highlighted high frequency words in green and words that can be found on the story word mat in blue. I hope this is helpful. 

Sorry I huffed and puffed.

Sorry I went on the roof.

Sorry I went in the chimney.

I will not do it again.

 Snack time and this week's Nursery rhyme...
