Good morning Reception!
How are you all today? I hope you all enjoyed yesterday's lessons and that you managed to get outside. We had lovely weather again yesterday. I really hope this continues.
Today we have our usual morning activities and then this afternoon we have Art and Music.
Not long to go now until we are all back in school together. Remember that tomorrow is World Book Day which is exciting! I hope you have a great day!
Take care, Miss Hand and Mrs. Barnett

Mass - Today at 10.30am
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 2nd, what is today? What is one more than 2... 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
1. Handwriting - I wonder if you can practise writing this sentence - The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. (document below). It uses all the letters in the alphabet, so it is really useful!
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.
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 writing a bit about the story.
Write about the story
You might like to have a go at writing a sentence or two about the story or some sounds/words/simple sentences about some of the pictures. Use the word mat to help you with tricky words. You also have a sound mat and a high frequency word table to help you.
Think about what you'd like to write - what sounds can you hear in the word? Can you write them down?
If you want to write a sentence, think about what you would like to write. How many words are in your sentence?
Count them using your fingers...What's your first word? Have a go at writing it down. Remember to start with a capital letter, remember finger spaces between each word and a full stop at the end of your sentence.
Today we are continuing with to learn about different types of lines. We are going to look at an Artist 'Miro' who was famous for using lines in his art work. I wonder if you can have a go at creating a collage just like one of Miro's.
Today's end of the day story - The Ugly Duckling! I hope you enjoy it!
