A message from Miss Hand...

Good morning Reception!
How are you all today? I hope you all enjoyed yesterday's lessons. Today we have our usual morning activities and then we're going to be continuing with our unit of Lent.

Not long to go now until we are all back in school together. If you didn't see this week's video message, take a look back at yesterday's page to view it. I hope you have a great day!
Take care, Miss Hand and Mrs. Barnett

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 1st, what is today? What is one more than 1... 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.

Months of the Year Song

Basic skills

1. Practise writing numbers - Practise writing numbers from 0 - 10. If you can do this, why not have a go all the way to 20.


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.

Literacy - The Enormous Turnip

Today we are continuing our new story of The Enormous Turnip.

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 drawing your own story map. You could just choose some of the key moments in the story if you like. Perhaps you'd like to just think about what happened at the beginning, middle and end of the story. There are a couple of examples of story maps to give you an idea. I wonder if you can label your story map.

You can use the word mat, sound mat and high frequency word table to help you. 

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