05 Jul Home Learning: Reception w/c 6th July 2020
Hello Reception Superstars!
Thank you to those of you at home who sent us messages to share with your friends in school last week – we loved them! This Friday, we will be arranging a video call for you to see your classmates (details will be sent via email).
If you are still learning from home, we hope you enjoy the activities we have for you this week. Have fun!
In phonics this week, we are not learning any new sounds. Instead we will provide your child with videos to support blending and learning of high frequency words.
Can you blend the words shown in these phase 2 videos? https://epicphonics.com/teachers/phase/2/blending
Read the CVC words and pinch the sounds on your ‘Fred Fingers’.
Learn tricky words here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvMyssfAUx0
Practise reading and writing the green words below:
Frog, grin, slip, thing, chin, quiz, chop, chin, pram, mess (Set 1 sounds)
Play, fair, see, door, chair, spray, blow, book, zoo, green, start, car, boy, shout (Set 2 sounds)
When practising reading, write out the above words for your child and ask them to read the words to you. Remind them of the following: Special friends – ‘Fred talk’ – read the word.
When practising writing, ask the children to hold up their ‘Fred Fingers’ and pinch the sounds they can hear.
Links to phonics games:
- Go outside and draw a simple map of the area. Hide some treasure – gold coins, a chocolate bar or anything your child would love. Mark the hiding place with an X on the map and ask your child to find the treasure.
- Write a secret message using lemon juice and water. Mix the lemon juice and water in a bowl then soak a cotton bud in the mixture. Use the cotton bud to write your secret message on a piece of paper. When it has dried hold the paper near a bulb and you will see the secret message!
- Create an animal from natural resources. Take a picture and email it to us so we can guess what animal you have created.
- Make music with wine glasses. What other kitchen items could you use to make music?
This week for your literacy learning we are asking you to complete some research projects about wild animals.
What is a wild animal? A wild animal lives in nature and is not tame.
Project 1: Can you (with a little help from your parents) research other wild animals? Find out where they live and what they eat. Find out why they live in these places and why they could not live elsewhere?
Write some super sentences about what you have found out.
Project 2: Now find out about animals that are endangered. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7k8CcAU2Lt0
Research an endangered animal and find out what is happening to their homes/environment.
Create a ‘Save the animals’ poster.
This week we will be practising our number formation and revisiting addition and subtraction.
Practise your number formation by:
- Making the number shapes using playdough
- Writing the numbers in shaving foam
- Writing numbers in water and cornflour
- Tracing over letters that an adult has drawn for you.
Practise adding and subtracting skills by:
- Watch this short ‘Numberblocks’ video to help you learn all the ways to add to 10.
- Explore different ways of making 10. You will need your 10 cubes for this activity. Make a tower of your 10 cubes. Split the tower in different ways and write down the number sentence. E.g. You may split it so you have 2 bricks and 8 bricks so you would write down 2 + 8.
- Watch this short subtraction video.
- Learn how to use tens frame to add and subtract. Watch this video to help.
Parents, you may also find this video useful to watch to see what strategies you can use to help your child develop their subtraction skills.
