Morning Reception Class smiley,


I hope that you all had a lovely weekend. smiley Hopefully, the sun will come back out today. yes

Here are the suggested tasks for today:


1. Phonics - This week, we are recapping on the phonic sounds and tricky words that we have learnt so far. Today, we are recapping on the 'ai' sound. Read the story below and circle any words with the 'ai' sound in. Then, have a try at the 'ai' dice game below. Roll a dice and then read the words that are next to the number that you rolled. 

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 'The Snail and the Whale'. 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 Snail and the Whale animation here:


You may wish to watch this in sections, pausing at moments to discuss events and make predictions about what might happen next! Key moments to pause might be 3:49 mins, 4:55 mins, 15:39 mins, 16:37 mins, 20:30 mins.


Enjoy a reading of the story here:


Which version do you prefer and why? Now that you have watched the film and listened to a reading of the book, can you retell the story to another person in your household? You can use time words such as first, next, later, after that, and finally to help you.

3. Maths -
