Welcome back, or welcome to those of you that are new! We are looking forward to the academic year ahead and working closely with you all. In Reception we continue to use Tapestry to share learning at home, please check this regularly as this will also be used to update you on upcoming activities or events within the classroom, as well as being a fantastic tool for developing vocabulary by sharing memories from home. We are excited to begin this journey with you and work in partnership to help your children reach their full potential.
Thank you for your continued support.
Miss Becky Greenow and Mrs Carter
I hope you are all safe and well. Mrs Carter and I are sorry that we did not get to wish you a fantastic half term, however, we hope each and every one of you knows how very proud we are of all you have achieved this term. We are very lucky to spend our days in such fantastic company. I have attached some activities below for you to enjoy together today or revisit over half term and would love to see some of these on Tapestry so we can share our learning, and our half term adventures when back at school.
In phonics we have been practicing reading 2 syllable words. We learnt that a syllable is like a beat in a word. Practice clapping the syllables in your families names, can you count how many? I have attached todays PowerPoint for you to share at home. After half term we will be completing phonics assessments to identify any gaps and support children in learning. With this in mind I have attached an additional PowerPoint and links to songs focussed on specifically the sounds and tricky words we have learnt. It would be great to practice these regularly through the holidays if you are able, even something small, for example, listening to and watching the songs daily can really help the children remember their sounds. You can also access additional books through your Oxford owl login, sorry I could not change or add books before the half term.
Welcome to Reception Class
To develop your writing skills have a go at one of the activities below:
Remember to use your robot voice to segment the sounds in words when recording. Challenge youself by using finger spaces, capital letters and full stops.
In Reception we like to explore things that are current and relevant to the children. For English please enjoy and share the poem below. I have added a video and script. Can you think about any other Weather types we have explored? What new words can you use to describe the wind? Think about sounds, feelings and smells. What do you notice when you look out your window? Perhaps you might like to create some artwork to music using pens, crayons or paint, linking this to the wind and introducing swirly, fast, loud, whooshing and swooping movements as you move your paint brush/pen/pencil across the paper. Do you notice any colours mixing?
Get active and have a go at some number songs
