Reading with Mrs Carroll || Non-fiction || 2/7/20 ||

Wednesday 1st July

 

Today is the start of Plastic Free July! In Rice Lane Primary school, we think that it is very important that we play our part in reducing plastic pollution.

Have a look at the video on www.plasticfreejuly.org and join millions of people reducing their plastic waste. This year, the theme is ‘Choose to refuse single-use plastic’. Take a moment to have a think…Do you choose to refuse plastic bags?Plastic straws? Single-use cups? Packaged food?

 

Together we can make a difference and be part of the solution!

 

Below are the Oak National Academy lessons (Week 10 Wednesday) and our daily phonics video for you to watch too.

Updated Home Learning for Reception

 

Welcome Back! We hope you and your family are well and had a fantastic half term break. As part of our plans to support remote teaching and learning, we wanted to let you know that as a whole school we are now using resources from Oak National Academy. 

 

Each day on the Oak National Academy website there will be a series of lessons for you to complete at home. They have a lot in common with the videos and style of learning that we have been doing over the last couple of months. We are sure that you will enjoy completing the tasks. Below is a section with some further information about Oak National Academy.

 

Follow the link below. We are beginning with Week 6. Try out each of today's lessons.

https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/reception

 

We will also be uploading DFE (Department for Education) Phonics videos each day for you to watch and join in with. They should really help you to build on your existing knowledge.

Lesson 25 - Reception

We will be uploading a new Phonics video each day for you to work with. Today we will start with this one.

Oak National Academy Information

 

What is Oak National Academy?

Oak National Academy is an online classroom that has been created by teachers specifically to support pupils learning at home. It is backed by the Department for Education.

 

How are lessons taught?

Each lesson is delivered by a trained teacher, over a pre-recorded video, and it is made very clear at the start of each session anything you might need (such as pens, paper etc.). The lessons are designed to need minimal supervision. Each lesson can be paused and rewound to help pupils learn at their own pace.  The lessons include quizzes, worksheets and creative activities to engage your child.

 

How do I share my child's work with a teacher?

Take a screen shot of your child's work or a photo of your child working and email it or share it on Twitter.

 

On-line Assembly

Each Thursday at 11 am Oak Academy hold and online assembly. These provide opportunities to hear form some inspirational guest speakers, including the first British astronaut, the cast of the Lion King and the Archbishop of Canterbury. You will find links to these assemblies in Thursday's rainbows.

 

Oak Activity Club

Some days with feature activities from the Activity Club. These activities will hopefully keep your child active and engaged. The activities feature cook-a-longs, debating and arts activities.

 

Help/Support 

If parents and carers need any support with your child's learning or if you have any other questions, please email us at: schoolclosure@ricelane.liverpool.sch.uk

Science

Nature Walk

Before the Easter break all 3 Reception classes went on a nature walk around the school grounds. We thought about 4 of our senses- SEE, HEAR, SMELL and FEEL. We took photographs of anything to do with nature that we could see, hear, smell or feel.

For example: we could hear the leaves blowing in the wind, we could smell the soil with freshly planted seeds in it, we could see a beautiful bumble bee buzzing by the flowers and we could feel the warm sunlight on our faces.

Over the next week, when you are on your walk around your local area try to do the same.

What can you SEE, HEAR, SMELL and FEEL? If you can, take photos as evidence and tweet them to us @RecRiceLane

Home Learning Summer Term

 

Dear Rice Lane Reception,

 

We hope that you had a great Easter break and enjoyed time with your loved ones. We will once again be putting daily challenges on the website for you to do at home.

 

Feel free to revisit any of the previous tasks, as reviewing and revising is a brilliant way to ensure that the learning sticks with us.

 

If you want to show us any of the things that you are doing at home, please feel free to tweet us @RecRiceLane letting us know how you did, or showing us pictures of you doing your wonderful learning.

PE

Joe does live PE lessons each morning on his YouTube channel, and they are always a great workout. Below is a fun one for you to try today.

Reading

Reading is so important at this stage, so reading to a family member or having someone read to you and discussing the story and asking and answering questions about it is really beneficial. Below are some example questions and discussion points:

 

  • 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?

Easter Holidays

Today we break up for the Easter Holidays. We hope that you have a relaxing, peaceful and enjoyable time at home with your family. Take care of yourselves and your loved ones, and we will see you all soon. Don’t forget to look out for Easter Eggs hidden in people’s windows when you are out for your daily walk.

 

We will be setting daily activities again on our Reception page on the school website and Twitter challenges from Monday, 19th April.

Reading

Keep on reading! Below is a fun Reading Bingo that you can work your way through. Try to do as many of these as you can while we are unable to be in school.

Science

We know that so many of you in Reception are nature lovers. Have you seen any animals while you’ve been on your outdoor walks?

 

The Georgia Aquarium in America has opened up some of its enclosures to be viewed online. Try clicking the link below to see if you can spot any creatures. Below the first live video are lots of other cameras to choose from. Some of the animals might be shy, but how many can you see?

Writing

Continuing with the animal theme, have a think about your favourite animal. What is it about this animal that you like? Have you ever seen one in real life?

Draw and colour a picture of your favourite animal. It could be a jellyfish, your pet rabbit or anything else. Then see if you can label its body parts. E.g. small, fluffy tail or big, sharp claws.

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’.

'ee' Words | Blending Phonics Phase 3

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.

Wednesday 1st April

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.
