I hope you are all happy and well at home. I know this may seem really strange us not being in school everyday but I am still going to be sending you work tasks to do at home on a daily basis. So, find yourself a comfortable space to work, grab the workbook that you brought home from school and get ready to learn from your new 'school at home'.
Use the 'Suggested Daily Timetable' to help you structure your day and the 'Pick n Mix' document for your afternoon activities. Each morning I will be posting an English/Maths task here on our class web page for you to complete.
You will be able to read lots of books from our reading scheme by joining Oxford Owl, the link is below.
Take care and see you soon.
Daily Learning Task- Friday 27th March
Good Morning Reception,
I have been enjoying doing 'PE with Joe Wicks' and my girls every morning at 9am. Cosmic Yoga, BBC Supermovers and Go Noodle are also great ways to keep fit and active throughout the day. Give them a try if you haven't already, they're great fun! I've popped the links below for you, make sure you get the adults in your house involved too!
Today I would like you to look at the below picture, taken from the book ‘The Gruffalo’, I would like you to describe the setting of the story.
What can you see?
Parents- Encourage your child to list all the things that they can see in their Home School Learning Book. They could also have a go at copying the picture.
Here is another little activity to keep you busy over the weekend.
Would you please order the flashcards once again to 20. Then I would like you to find one more than a given number.
Parents- Can you point to certain numbers and ask your child to tell you which number is one more than the number you are pointing to.
Using your Home School Book encourage your child to write the number sentences for each one. For example, 15+1=16.
Hope you have a lovely weekend

“All was quiet in the deep dark wood. The mouse found a nut and the nut was good!” Thank you for listening to the story of ‘The Gruffalo’
Today, I would like you to design, draw and cut out character puppets from the story. Then I would like you to use the puppets to act out the story with your family. You can use the paper from your Home School Book for this.

Daily Learning Task-Tuesday 24th March
Good morning Reception,
I hope you had fun making your flashcards to 20 yesterday.
Today, I would like you to order the flashcards, starting with the number one. The weather is going to be lovely today so why don't you find a large space in your garden for this activity. I hope you have fun.
Parents- If this is completed with ease, take a few flashcards away and see if your child can find the missing numbers.
If your child struggles to order numbers to 20, concentrate on numbers to 10 and practise this a few times.
If you have not already signed up to Oxford Owl (the link is below) please do this today and share a book with your child.
Daily Learning Task-Monday 23rd March
Today I would like you to make your own set of flash cards to 20. These flash cards will be used over the coming weeks, to support your learning at home.

Our Reception Outdoor Vision!
The EYFS states:
• ‘Being outdoors has a positive impact on children's sense of well-being and helps all aspects of children's development.
• Being outdoors offers opportunities for doing things in different ways and on different scales than when indoors.
• It gives children first-hand contact with weather, seasons and the natural world.
• Outdoor environments offer children freedom to explore, use their senses, and be physically active and exuberant.’
We are looking to improve our outdoor area to make it exciting and inviting for our wonderful children. We need your help!
We would be very grateful for anything you could donate to us and it would be highly beneficial for our children to explore and investigate with such open ended resources! Together with our caretaker we want create and build some amazing structures for our children and build up our outdoor area.
Attached are various inspirational pictures from our school Outdoor Vision and a google page for you to visit to help understand the types of equipment we are looking for and how we would use it.
Planks of wood (all sizes)
Natural materials stones, shells, straw etc
