RECEPTION HOME LEARNING

 

The home learning for reception for this week and previous weeks is below. Please do as much as you can with your child. We would appreciate greatly if you could practice the phonic sounds with your child each day if possible as it is really important they remember these.You can use the flashcards below and we also have two videos which you can play of Mrs Aitken and Miss Chapman which will help the children to say the sounds each day. These videos can be found in the video centre on the Home Learning page of the website. Thank you 

Reception Home Learning 13th – 17th July

 

Our learning this week is based on the book:

  • Topic activities – 2 or 3 over the week
  • Fitness time each day – JumpStart Jonny / Joe Wickes or just time playing outside or going for a walk/bike ride/scooter ride.

 

Remember to do what you can and that a play based approach will work best. Do not expect the children to sit for too long and whatever you can do is appreciated.

If they struggle they could use a numberline (write 0-10 / 20 along a piece of paper) so they can find the numbers and work out what is ‘one more’ (next number along) and what is ‘one less’ (number before).

(As read by Mrs Wilkinson on the school website and Facebook page)

 

 

 

Over the week:

  • 10-15 minutes reading each day – children reading to you and you reading stories to them and talking about what they/you have read
  • 20-30 minutes of phonics each day (see below)
  • 20-30 minutes of maths each day (see below)
  • Writing  ideas  - if the children could do 2-3 a week that would be great (see below)
  • Fitness time each day – JumpStart Jonny / Joe Wickes or just time playing outside or going for a walk/bike ride/scooter ride.

Remember to do what you can and that a play based approach will work best. Do not expect the children to sit for too long and whatever you can do is appreciated.

 

WRITING IDEAS

 

The children might like to:

- Write about the story of Princess Mirror-Belle and the Dragon Pox.

- Write about another story they have read.

- Write about a time when they were ill.

Whatever they write about we would love to see their writing (and pictures!) so please upload some photos on their blog so we can see their writing.

Now put them in a random order on the ground or table, then say a word and your child has to find it and ‘splat’ it with their hand.

Pictionary

 

Draw the following and get your child to guess what you are drawing and write it down:

 

cow

clown

moat

pond

fish

ship

 

Rhyme words

 

How many words can your child think of that rhyme with air?

(hair, chair, fair)

 

Challenge:  Can they write a sentence using one of these words?

 

 

 

Tricky Word Challenge

 

How many tricky words can you find in your favourite story book?

 

Can you write the tricky words all by yourself?

 

Read the tricky words one by one and see if your child can write them.

 

 

Read

Can she keep the horse?

 

Was he bigger than her?

 

I am looking at the cow.

 

The tail on the goat is long.  

Am I high up in the tree?

If your child can read all of the tricky words on sight by themselves then you could always introduce the Phase 4 tricky words for them to start learning a couple at a time. We have previously sent flashcards you can download or they are in the home learning on the class pages of the website.

 

Phase 4 Tricky Words – said, have, like, so, do, some, come, little, there, were, one, what, when, out

 

MATHS

 

Each day try to do the following:

  • Practise rote counting to 30 (or beyond if they can!)
  • Practise recognising 0-20 by using the flashcards in the learning pack and some of the ideas we gave you
  • Ask the children ‘one more’ and ‘one less’ questions using numbers to 20. For example – ‘What is one more than 8?’ ‘What is one less than 5?’ When they can do this with numbers 1-10 then try 11-20. If they struggle they could use a numberline (write 0-10 / 20 along a piece of paper) so they can find the numbers and work out what is ‘one more’ (next number along) and what is ‘one less’ (number before).

 

CHALLENGES FOR THIS WEEK – CAN YOU COMPLETE THEM ALL?

 

Monday

 Using small objects, double all the numbers up to 5. (e.g. 3 objects + 3 objects)

Tuesday

Do the same as yesterday but today write number sentences to go with your practical doubling. (i.e. 4+4=?) Use fingers or objects to check the answer.

Wednesday

Imagine you are a pirate with two treasure boxes (use small containers and real coins or objects for ‘treasure’). Put the same amount of objects in each treasure box then take them out and count them altogether to see how much treasure you have!

Thursday

Write some doubling number sentences for your grown up. Then check if they have got them right!
