Morning Reception Class,


We have made it to Friday again! TGIF (thank goodness it is Friday)! Thank you for all your hard work this week! Thank you to your parents/guardians at home that have been teaching you - you are all doing an amazing job! smiley


Here are the suggested tasks for today:-


1. Phonics - Today, we are recapping on the 'oi' sound. Have a try at reading 'oi' words by playing Obb and Bob, Buried Treasure or Dragon's Den on Phonics Play below:-


Then, have a try at the following worksheets on the 'oi' sound:-

2. Writing - Below is a document produced by the English team at Lancashire County Council. They have come up with some Literacy lessons for Reception Class. The theme this week is 'Hoot! Hoot!' Below is the grid with the activities on with links to videos, texts and resources for the week. I have picked out an activity for you to do each day. However, feel free to select a different activity if you feel that your child would benefit/enjoy doing that activity more. I would love to see your work. Feel free to send me any work on Tapestry. smiley

Watch and discuss All About Owls for Kids:


This clip is rich in vocabulary. Explore and discuss new words together, e.g. nocturnal, hunters, species, talons, bill etc.

Find out all about where different types of owl live by watching Habitats – where do different owls live?

Discuss what you have learnt about owls. Tell people in your house a new fact(s) you have learnt! Have any of your questions been answered?


If you can, write a/some sentences about what you have learnt. Say your sentence out loud before you write and use your phonics to help you with your spelling. You could draw a picture of an owl and label it, including some of the information you have learnt, e.g. big eyes, a head that turns all the way round!


You can use the template below if you like:-
