Morning Reception Class,


I hope that you all had a lovely weekend.


Here are the suggested tasks for today:-


1. Phonics - Today, we are recapping on the 'ear' sound. Have a try at reading 'ear' 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 'ear' 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 'Alien Invasion'. 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 enjoy the story Aliens Love Underpants by Claire Freedman:


Discuss the story with your child including:-


What did the aliens see in the story?

Return to the story Aliens Love Underpants again and pause the film on each image.


Use the following prompts to support discussion for each image:
• I can see …
• Tell me more …


After saying several sentences orally, encourage your child to write sentences for their favourite images using the sentence starter, I can see… .


Look at the image 2:20 mins from the clip above. Ask: Which are your favourite underpants and why? Now say and write a sentence using the image to support ideas, e.g.
My favourite underpants are …

Encourage your child to use their phonics to help them sound out and spell words.

3. Maths -


Click on the link above. Today, we are looking at week 8, day 1. 

Can you make a 3D palace? 


Can you spot the mistake in the pattern?


Then, have a look at the Powerpoint below on the number 10.  Today, we are going to recap on the number 10. Perhaps, you could go on a number 10 hunt today around your house or on your daily walk. How many number 10's can you spot?

If you are up for a challenge, have a look at the 'Topic Challenges for this week' section under week 10 on the remote learning for Reception. Feel free to send me any photographs of any learning at home.  smiley


I hope that you are all well and still smiling. I am missing you all lots!
