Please follow this link for a virtual daily speed sound lesson for your child to take part in.  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ

Please see slip enclosed in your child's home learning pack this will inform you of what set speed sounds they are currently learning.

There is a slight change- due to demand the videos will be available to view for 24 hours (until the following days session is streamed). 

  • Set 1 speed Sounds at 9:30am and again at 12:30pm
  • Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10:00am and again at 1:00pm
  • Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10:30am and again at 1:30pm 

Then.....

Practice speedy green words at the back of the book with your child. You sound out the word e.g. f-r-o-g and say frog, your child copies, do this for every word.  Then swap over so your child is the 'teacher'. Repeat for sounds, story green words and red words (page 4,5,6,7). N.B just read each red word and get your child to copy, you do not need to sound them out.  Your child should now be becoming more confident as they have been practicing the same words for a number of days - they may just be able to read the words without sounding them out. This is great as it is developing their fluency! Get your child to read the whole book to you! 

 

If your child is not yet onto reading books please practice green words 1.1-1.5 encourage children to Fred talk e.g. s-a-t and then say sat and also practice speed sound flashcards. 

 

Turn to the back cover of the story book - Questions to talk about. Give children the page number and give them time to find the page then ask them the questions. For 'FF' this stands for (fastest finger) your child has to find the answer and point and then tell you the answer. For have a think give your child time to think about the answer before answering- this is helping them to develop their comprehension skills.

Home Learning Tasks - Tuesday 30th March 2020 

 

English Task 

Children should all be familiar with the story of Hansel and Gretel. Get your child to look at the picture of the cottage made from sweets in their home learning book. Can your child write about the house? Encourage your children to use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops at the end of the sentence. 

 

Maths Task 

Focus on Week 2 Day 2 on white rose website.  https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/

Today's task involves making ladybird biscuits (on the website it also gives alternatives so see what you have in your cupboards) Utimately the children are going to be learning how to double numbers! E.g. make ladybird biscuits and put 2 spots on one side get your child to put the same number of spots on the other side "How many all together?" Adult to model language "yes double 2 equals 4". 

Don't worry if you do not have the ingredients in to make biscuits! (See day 6 maths task in home learning booklets instead). It is gingerbread man doubling today! I have left them blank so that children can see you drawing the sweeties on (can just use spots). E.g. for double 3. You draw 3 spots and get your child to draw 3 spots - get your child to count to see how many there is all together. Adult to model language "double 3 equals 6" etc.  Put emphasis on the fact that double means adding the same number again. Get your child to write the answer.

Please remember the importance of using vocabulary alongside signing to encourage children to use their voice.

Yellow- The Gingerbread Man

 

This week we had a very special delivery to our classroom, in the form of six duck eggs! We were so excited  watching them hatch and now have 6 happy and healthy ducklings! We have enjoyed learning how to safely handle them and have made sure we have taken excellent care of them.  They will be enjoying a weekend break at Mrs Banks' house before going back to their forever home at the farm! 
We have had a fantastic time cooking with Hannah from The Pickle Palace this week! We have made delicious sausage, bean and cheese wraps and fruit kebabs! 

Chinese New Year Celebrations!

This week we have had a wonderful time celebrating Chinese New Year! We have been creating paper lanterns, Chinese dragons and even tasted some delicious Chinese food! We have also been learning to say "Hello" in Chinese and have been writing Chinese numbers. Look at our photographs to find out more! 

 

 

We have had a lovely time working with Mrs Matherson from Gateshead music service. We have been exploring a range of instruments and learning new songs. Mrs Matherson will be working with us every Friday morning until half term! 

Lumiere Parent Workshop

Our new outdoor area is up and running, complete with a fantastic mud kitchen and our own gardening area! We have had great fun exploring!

We have had a fabulous week celebrating Halloween in reception! We have enjoyed making potions in the witches cottage, carving our own pumpkins and have even made a witches hat using an ice cream cone! We observed the chocolate melting then decorated them using lots of yummy decorations! 

We love to read!

Reception have enjoyed voting for the story they would like to hear at story time ! We have had lots of mathematical discussion about which one has won! It makes our story times even more exciting ! 

We have had so much fun at forest school. We have been spotting the signs of Autumn and building hedgehog homes!

We have had a fantastic first week in reception! We have been exploring our new classroom and settling into our new routines! We have really enjoyed staying for our lunch!
