Phonics

We have some phonics-based activities for you to try at home today. We will be focusing on the ‘ee’ digraph.

Firstly, try to think of as many words with the ‘ee’ sound in as you can. Maybe (with your help!) a grown-up can write down all the ones that you can think of. Keep this list for later.

Next watch the video below. Sound out the words in the video. Your grown-up might be able to pause the video as you go, so you can sound out the words on your own using ‘robot arms’.

Next play a game of Dragon’s Den on https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/

 

Once you have logged in using Username: march20 Password: home click Resources, Phase 3, Dragon’s Den and select Phase 3 and then the ‘+ee’ sound.

 

To finish off see how many new ‘ee’ words you can add to the list you made earlier. How many more did you get to add?

Try this sheet below as an extension activity. You will need a dice. Roll the dice and read the ‘ee’ words on the line of the number that you rolled.

Writing

Take a look at the interesting picture below:

 

Write an ‘I can see…’ sentence based on what you can see in the picture.

As an extension, with an adult try to create a story based on the picture. What are their names? How did they get there? Where are they going to? What might happen next?

Reading

The best thing that you can at the moment is to read as much as you can.

 

Here is a story called Ronald the Rhino (pdf and PowerPoint versions). Ask an adult to read it to you. As you read, pause to discuss what is happening and make predictions about what might happen next.

 

Did you like the story? What was your favourite part?

Art

We have another creative activity for you to do this week. The Easter Bunny has asked us for a huge favour. Let’s try to make our streets a huge Easter Egg Hunt. Draw an Easter Egg and put it in your window for people to see. When on your daily exercise you can ‘collect’ eggs using your counting skills to see how many you can spot. If you like, you can tweet them to us @ricelaneprimary.

 

                                

Maths

Telling the time is a wonderful life skill and something that we all learned to do just a couple of weeks ago. Here is a sheet for you to complete as a reminder about time. The adults at home could help build on your time telling skills by asking you to tell the time on real clocks around your home.

Phonics

We have some phonics-based activities for you to try at home today. We will be focusing on the ‘sh’ digraph.

Each day practise writing your name. Adults might need to write it down first as a model for children to assist them.

 

Have a close look at the picture below:

Write an ‘I can see…’ sentence based on what you can see in the picture. Try to be as creative as you can.

E.g. I can see a dog. or I can see green moss on a big tree.

Monday 23rd March

 

In addition to the packs and books that were handed out before the closure, we will be updating this page regularly with challenges for the children to complete at home.

Below is a series of tasks related to a story that we will be covering after we return to school:

 

Can you draw your favourite African animal?

What colours did you use?

What does this animal like to eat?

Can you find out any interesting facts about your animal?

Challenge- make your animal out of materials that you might have around your house. The more eco-friendly the better!

 

 

Reading

 

The most beneficial thing that you can do with you child over the closure is READING. Reading to others and having other people read to them increases confidence and ability with both reading and writing.

 

Talking to your children about the books they read is one of the best ways to support your child’s literacy development. Below are some examples of questions that you can ask before, during or after reading a story:

 

  • What makes you think this book is going to be interesting?
  • What do you think the book is going to be about?
  • What has happened so far?
  • Where is the book set?
  • Did you learn any new words or facts so far?
  • What was your favorite part of the book? Why?
  • Who was your favorite character? Why?
  • What was the most interesting thing you learned from the book?

Welcome to the Reception page!  We hope this will give you up to date information about events happening in Reception.

Reading Books

Your child will now have received a library book along with a reading record.  It is very important that these are brought into school on a Friday so that they can be changed.  It is crucial that daily reading also occurs at home, to ensure children have an opportunity to understand and recall each book they read. Repetition of reading the same book several times, benefits the children, helping them to apply their reading skills. At this stage it is important to talk about what is happening in the pictures and asking lots of questions! 

 

Scrapbooks

Your child will also have received a purple Scrapbook.  You can use this to tell us about your life outside of school!  We will also use this book to set fun activities and tasks to do at home.  Please bring these to school each Monday.

Reception Hours

Your child will now be staying for a full day in school. Reception doors will open at 8:50 a.m. for drop off and 3:20 p.m. for collection. 

 

Lunchtime

Your child is entitled to a free school meal. They will be offered a choice between a sandwich or a hot meal. Teachers will accompany your child into the hall for lunch to ensure your child is well supported and has adequate food for lunch. If your child's initial choice is not liked on the day, we will give them an alternative that they will enjoy. If your child is a fussy eater or you have concerns, please speak to the class teacher. Your child will also receive milk and fruit during the day as a healthy snack.

 

Water

Your child is encouraged to bring a bottle of water with them into school each day. Please label with your child's name. Children are encouraged to drink this water as and when suits them so to ensure children are well hydrated during the day. We ask that bottles are not filled with fruit juice as water is the best drink to keep little brains active and healthy.
