Our topic: Food!
The last half term! We are missing you so much and think you are superstars for all you are doing at home! Please keep in touch :)
The Reception class learn from focused activities (around 20 minutes) and then they get to play in the learning environment. Keep the activities engaging and not too long.
Our daily timetable-
- Wake up Shake up! www.gonoodle.com
- Handwriting and Spelling
- Understanding the World
Think of words with the sounds in and ask your child to read them.
Then ask children to write words with the sounds it.
This is to ensure they are applying their phonics to their reading and writing.
If your child is finding a sound tricky then look at that single sound during that lesson
Search the sound and Geraldine the Giraffe on YouTube
Focus this half term: Independent Writing. Focus on them using handwriting, phonics and spellings independently.
Monday: What happened in the story?
Tuesday: What did Oliver like eating? What do you like or not like to eat?
Wednesday: What did Grandad grow in his garden?
Thursday: Draw your perfect garden, what fruit and vegetables would you grow? Label what you have drawn.
Friday: Can you think of another story book with food in it? Read it with a family member!
For each day you can adapt the task to your child's learning needs. If your child finds it tricky then focus on discussion of the story and writing initial sounds of words. To extend your child, focus on writing sentences.
