I can't believe that we have made it! What a year it has been full of surprises! We have had a dino-tastic week in school learning about different dinosaurs, den building and even having socially distanced visits from Matilda and Xander! On behalf of the whole Reception Team, we would like to thank every single parent, carer and of course the children for their hard work, determination and dedication throughout the whole year! You have made us all very proud to say we have been your teachers! 

We managed to get a socially distanced class photo when Xander and Matilda came to visit ... 

Here are just a few photos to show you what we have been up to during the week ... 

We have been doing lots of art with Rob Biddulph so if you would like to have a go, here is the link ...

Again, thank you for everything! Have a marvelous summer, stay safe but most importantly, have fun! 

Love 

Miss H and The Reception Team xxx

We can't believe that our second to last week has crept up on us so fast! We have had another jam packed week where each bubble has learnt about a different country. The Red Dragons have learnt about Spain, the Blue Whales have learnt about France and the Yellow Superstars have learnt about Italy. Today, each bubble shared what they have learnt by giving the other bubbles a presentation!

We also managed to squeeze in sports day! 

Here are a few pictures to show you what the bubbles have been doing ... 

We all hope you have a restful weekend, ready for the last week!

What a wet but wonderful week we have had in school! We have been looking at the book Giraffes Can't Dance and Tanka Tanka Skunk! We have made lots of different giraffe crafts, written our own giraffe stories and made musical instruments to create our own version of Tanka Tanka Skunk! We then braved the rain and performed our compositions to the other bubbles, socially distancing of course! 

I think we all need a rest after all of the exciting activities the bubbles have been up to, here are just a few pictures from the week ... 

Have a lovely weekend, I hope the weather improves!

Good morning everyone - It's Mr. H. again! Can you believe it is time for transition Tuesdays again?

First things first, I hope everybody is doing well and are staying safe.

I am currently writing this at home after taking Luna and Brego out for a walk and I got soaked wet!

Here is a small task for you to have a go at! Can you take on my number and alphabet challenges?

You get three minutes to write your numbers to 20 and try to get them all the right way around.

The same applies to the alphabet challenge, how many letters can you complete in three minutes whilst remembering to keep them the right way around?



Here are some photos for you!

This one is of Luna and Brego having a cuddle last week in the sun! Awww...



And this one is of Brego hiding his face behind his Christmas sloth toy! 



Back to you Mrs. Oddy!

NUMBER –  When the long hand is at 12 the time is something o’clock

Maths seeds

https://mathseeds.co.uk/

White Rose

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/

Warm up

Look at 2D and 3D shapes.

Look at a clock count round the numbers in order. What number does it start on? And finish on? Which number is at the bottom , top, left, right?

 Look at the positions of the numbers.

Can the children work out what time we come to school? Lunch time? Home time? Bed time? May draw some pictures to help with the understanding of the passing of time. We use a time table in school. Children will focus on what is important to them. Lunch TIME!

The hands on a clock turn forward and never backwards except for in Autumn.

Children make their own clock face adding the numbers and the hands.

 They then complete some  o’clock ‘s.

Play what time is it Mr Wolf.

TOPIC

Explain to the class that they are going to listen to a story about a giraffe named Gerald, who gets teased because he is clumsy and unable to dance like the other animals. However, Gerald meets a special friend who helps him. Ask the children if someone has ever helped them learn how to do something new. How did they feel when they could not do what everyone else was doing? How did they feel once they learned how to do it?  What did Gerald have to do in order to become a dancer? Is it important that everyone is able to do the same thing well? Ask the class why they think the author wrote this story. What did he want children to learn from Gerald's experience?

Children tell you things they are good  or that they find tricky …. My super powers…

Make a spinning plate of Gerald. You will need 2 paper plates and a split pin.

Giraffe's Can't Dance Art project for Kids

PSHCE

Look at the word can’t.

Why do people say it?

If we sometimes try really really hard we can do things we didn’t believe we could.

Swim? Ride a bike? Read? What else.

I can't believe that another week has flown by already! We have been very busy learning about different animals like reptiles, mammals and birds, and even sneaked in a 'school trip' to our woodland area. Look at the post below to find out more about our trip! 

Here are some photos from this week in our bubbles ... 

Have a wonderful weekend and hopefully the sun will keep shining for us!

Our Trip!

admin on: Reception

This week we were meant to be going on our school trip to Butterfly World, so we brought Butterfly World to us! 

Our wonderful key workers and the children in Reception created some beautiful animals across the week, then our brilliant team hid them in the woodland for the Reception children to find! 

There were peacocks, crocodiles and even sloths to name just a few! 

The children then gave socially distanced talks to the other bubbles about the animals they had been learning about throughout the week. The Red Dragons talked about reptiles, the Blue Whales talked about mammals and the Yellow Superstars talked about birds. 

Both ourselves and the children had a brilliant time! Thank you to everyone who helped make it so special!

Good Morning!

Transition Tuesdays!

A quick hello from year one!

Mr. H. here! I hope you are all well!
I just thought I would hop on to Mrs. Oddy's blog to say a big hello to you all and tell you how much I am looking forward to seeing you all in year one after the summer break. 

You guys won't know this but during lockdown, I was lucky enough to get a puppy! Now I love dogs, so getting a new pup is very exciting for me! I thought I would share a couple of photos on here for you to see! I have two dogs, Luna, the triclour Rough Collie is three years old and Brego, the blue merle Smooth Collie, who is now sixteen weeks old. In the first photo below he was only eight weeks old!



Look how much he has grown in 8 weeks!

Birds- e.g hens, flamingos, vultures, owls

Mammals with/ without fur. e.g  Monkeys, whales, goats, chipmunks,

Talk about their features which make them different to the others. Birds have feather and most of them can fly.

Reptiles have scales and are cold blooded so need to warm up using the sun. They hatch from eggs. E.g snakes.

Mammals feed their own babies with milk and they look like themselves, some have fur.

What a first, full week back! All the children have been so enthusastic about the activities we have been doing in school. We have spent the week looking at the book Bog Baby by Jeanne Willis. We have done a range of different activities such as describing Bog Baby, making our own Bog Baby out of clay and natural materials and making a pond to put Bog Baby in! 

Here are some photos from the week ... 

We have also created a piece of work collaboratively. My bubble created the pond, Mrs Hemingway's bubble created the cherry blossom and Mrs Coopers and Mrs Oddy's bubble created the bluebells. It isn't quite finished yet but here it is so far. What wonderful artists the children are! 

Have a lovely weekend and see you all again on Monday!

Wow! What a week! On behalf of the Reception team, I would like to say how brilliant the first three days have been. All of the children have been amazing and settled back into school wonderfully! We have all had lots of fun doing different activities including going out in the woodland (when it wasn't raining!). On a Friday, I will be doing a gallery of photos for each bubble, showing you what we have been up to during the week. Here we go ... 

Here is what my bubble, The Yellow Superstars, have been up to ... 

Here is what Mrs Hemingway's bubble, The Blue Whales, have been up to ...

TOPIC Bog Baby

Read the book without showing the picture on the front of the book up to the point where the children in the story first find the bog baby. Pause to talk with your child about what they think the bog baby might look like. Suggest they listen hard to the next two or three pages and paint a picture in their mind’s eye.

Bog Baby Book

Then carry on reading but without showing the illustration to the point where they take him home and hide him in the shed.

 Ask children to share their ideas of how they think the bog baby might look. Suggest they create one of their own using clay/play dough or just natural materials outside or insert them in to clay to make bog babies.

When they have finished ask them to introduce their bog babies to a friend.

What is he like? What does he like to do or eat? Does he make a noise?

 Using digital cameras/phone each child should take a photograph of their own Bog baby and write a caption to accompany it.

If time they can draw their Bog Baby. 

Thank-you

Monday 1st June

Welcome back!

Wow what amazing weather we have had last week.

I managed to walk the Holme Valley Circular on Tuesday (Cooler day) 20 miles. I thoroughly enjoyed it and felt blessed to live in such a beautiful area.

As you all know we are opening up school on Wednesday for Reception children.

There will be three 'bubbles' of less than 10 children in each. 

Myself (Mrs Cooper on a Wednesday : except for this week when I will be in) in the Reception class room.

Mrs Hemingway in the Library.

Miss Hemingway in class 1.

We have 2 days to rearrange furniture and toys and stationary etc.

We will be working the same activities as the blogs I will be writing but of course this being flexible to suit the children's needs.

We will try as much as possible to make sure your child is with someone they are looking forward to seeing. We have worked with the children for most of the year and feel they are a very sociable and amenable set of children and seem to work and play happily whatever groups we put them.

The blog will continue for those at home but I am also now teaching so they may not be as detailed. This will give you more time to concentrate and develop what your child is interested in.

I will cover the basic Phonics and Maths and topic as before.  I will recommend trying the Daily White Rose Maths. It looks really fun and follows a book each week.

1/6 The Snail and the Whale

8/6 The Princess and the Wizard.

15/6 Belle and the Dragon pox

22/6 Zog

29/6 Oliver’s Vegetables

6/7 The Dinosaur that Pooped a Planet

13/7 How many Legs?

I don’t know all these stories so will need to buy them if we feel this is something that the children are enjoying.

Mathseeds is also available every day.

As always the blogs are a guide and you know you children best.

We will be flexible in school depending on the weather and how the children are feeling and we might not get everything done that is on the blogs.

Here we go!

EXERCISE

Go noodle/Jo Wicks/ Yoga (cosmic Yoga) or just walk round the garden.

Hello,

Here is a little booklet to help your child with the reopening of schools.

coin

voice

Hold the sentence:

There are 8 British coins.

I have a good voice.

I plant the seed in soil.

Choose 1,2 or 3

 

NUMBER – We can use different coins to pay.

 

Can you remember all of the 8 coins?

If possible today you need to have a few 1ps,2ps and 5ps,10ps

You need a few items from around the house to price up (only up to 10p today).

Food packets and tins are good to make a shop.

Can you tell me how much the beans costs?

The price is 4p. What coins can we use to make 4p?

How many ways can we make 4p?

2p+ 2p=4p

1p+1p+2=4p

1p+1p+1p+1p=4p

Repeat with other items: You will only need 1p2p5p coins.

2p,3p,5p,6p,7p,8p,9p,10p

You could make a café and list the items and prices in the café with process on.

 

TOPIC-  EID

Here is also some information about Eid.

Eid is celebrated this weekend this year 23rd and 24th May.

It is usually a family and friend’s festival but this year people will have to celebrate with their families they live with in their own homes.

Eid is a time when Muslims are celebrating the end of Ramadan (fasting).

Here is a link to Cbeebies Lets celebrate.

  https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/puzzles/lets-celebrate-eid

I hope to see many lovely children back on the 3rd June. It won't be quite the same; we will make sure everyone has a warm welcome.  We will endeavour to provide your child with the best education we can under the restrictions.

Finally let me say a big THANK-YOU to all the parents and carers for your support in these unprecedented times.  I can see many of you are working so hard and really enjoying home learning but I do understand the children are missing their friends.

I will continue the daily blogs after the holidays as these will be followed in school by the children in their pods and by the staff.

Just to reassure you the children will be working with a member of staff familiar to them. We will not know which groups we will be teaching until we know who will be returning to school.

Have a super half term break.

Mrs Oddy, Mrs Hemingway and Miss Hemingway.

Fabulous Photographs. I still can't believe the weather is still warm and sunny.

Make sure you are watering your plants.

Thursday 21st May –

EXERCISE

Go Noodle/Joe Wicks/ Yoga (cosmic Yoga) or just walk round the garden.

PHONICS  and Reading (Oxford owl ebooks available)

10.30 set 3 sounds

Hold the sentence: I saw a fairy but it was not real.

 

NUMBER – Prices tell us how much to pay

 Key Vocab- price, cost, change, how much is left?

You will need all 7 British coins.

 Look at all the coins you have in your purse. Group them.

1p 2p 5p 10p 20p 50p £1 £2

Low value coins are bronze, then silver then gold.

Play ‘banks’. Have a large section of coins and children sort them into the different compartments. 

If they are happy with this have a game of shops pricing up a few items to pay for and get change.

Money is tricky so you may just get 10x 1p's to start with until they understand the value of different coins.

Start with 10p and choose items less than 10p. You made add two together

3p apple + 4p banana = 7p

How much change will we get from the 10p? (3p)

TOPIC – The Tree and Flower hunt!

Go on a walk and see if you can identify as many trees as you can?

How will you do this?

You may have a book to identify trees and flowers.

Its also a nice idea to take a rainbow and see if you can find these colours in nature?

You could use your skills and take pictures as you go?

What can you hear?

What can you smell?

What insects can you see?

Thank-you and  have a great walk!

Fancy some World Record breaking art?

admin on: Reception

Isabel, in year 2, pointed this out to me and I had to pass it along ... 

Like many of us, you may have been enjoying Rob Biddulph’s brilliant Draw with Rob draw along videos, which have amassed a huge online following and now been watched over 2 million times on YouTube.

On May 21st, Rob is going to attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the World’s Biggest Art Lesson

Rob will be live on YouTube at 4.00pm (BST) but in order for the attempt to meet Guinness World Records’ criteria we need participants – young and old –  to register for the free lesson at www.artworldrecords.com and be there for the whole 30 minutes. 

The attempt will also help to raise money for those most impacted by COVID-19.  Participants can donate what they can and companies have also begun to pledge financial support. These donations will go towards high impact charities to counter the impact of COVID-19, including stopping the disease’s spread, providing immediate relief to those most impacted and preventing future pandemics.

Here is something from Miss H, 

Hello everyone, we are going to spread a smile!

Mrs Barker introduced something to us called 'Padlet' which is like a virtual piece of paper that we can all get to and write on! If you click on the link below, you will be sent to a new window. Hopefully, you will see that I have started us off by adding a couple of posts to make you smile! If you double click on the piece of paper or click the 'plus' button, you can begin typing. In the title part, I'd like you to put your name, then we can see who has contributed. You need to write your message to everyone then press the enter button. You can add images or doodles that you can draw by pressing on the ellipsis (...). I am very much looking forward to your posts to make me and others smile! Here is a link to our Padlet: 

Spread a Smile - Padlet

Thank-you Miss Hemingway for that I am sure it will be lots of fun.

 Number – Doubles

Key Vocab-double, count on, add

  • Use pairs of socks , gloves shoes to count on in twos.
  • Use some example. One sandwich has two slices of bread. How many slices do we need for 5 sandwiches? 4,2,6 etc…
  • There are 4 cakes in a packet we have 2 packets how many all together?
  • Find the doubles in a set of dominos.

How look at halves.

How can we find half of 12? Remind them of cutting an apple in half. How many parts is a half? 2

So we put the 12 objects into 2 piles. We have halved them.

Repeat with other numbers.

Record this in your own way. Pictorial or use real objects.

Half of 12 is 6

000000/000000=12

TOPIC-  Instructions for planting

If available have a look at the   How to grow a sunflower big book   

Tell you child that instruction are not a story, they are a set of bossy sentences?

e.g

  1. Put dirt in a pot.
  2. Stick finger in the dirt for seed to go.
  3. Pat dirt flat.
  4. Water the seed.

Can you write your own set of instruction for planting a seed into your little booklets. Just a couple today and you can finish them off tomorrow if its too much. Four or five will do.

You can illustrate sentences with a picture.

Well done everyone. Times are changing and we may see you soon!

Aim

The aim of patience is to make four piles of cards, one for each suit, sorted into order by the numbers on the cards.

Set up

  • Shuffle the pack and mix the cards up
  • Place seven cards face-down in a line, next to each other
  • Turn up the card on the left
  • Place six cards on top of the six that are already face down
  • Turn up the left card of the second row
  • Repeat this until you only put one card down, and turn this up
  • Place the deck to one side

How to play

  • Place any aces in the bottom row into one of four foundation piles above the rows.
  • Turn over the top card of the deck.
  • Attempt to place the card in an appropriate spot.
    • Cards must switch between red and black.
    • Cards must be in order (K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, A).
  • The goal is to move all cards into the foundation piles.
    • Foundation piles must all be the same suit (spades, clubs, hearts, diamonds).
    • Foundation piles must be in order (A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K).
    • You can move an appropriate card to the foundation piles at any time.

TOPIC

It has been decided by some pupils in Y5 that they would like a 'UNIFORM DAY'

So tomorrow, Friday 15th, you can dress up in your uniform, if you would like and take a picture of yourself and then email it to us. We will make a collage out of them for next week.

 NUMBER

Start by ordering numbers to 20.

Hide 2 numbers and see if your child can spot which ones are missing?

On a blank number track pencil the numbers 1 and 10 only.

1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10

Without writing in the other numbers, ask the following questions;

Which numbers are in the middle of the number line?

-5/6

Circle the bank space 4.

Ask which number will be here?

How will you find this out?

Rub out 1 and 10 and circle where 6 would be. Ask the question which number would go here?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Talk about where 4 was and how 5 comes next then 6.

Point to the space for 8 which number belongs here?

If this is being understood by your child now make a blank number track to 20 and circle 3 spaces.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Challenge the children to write down their 3 guesses of these numbers.

How did they work it out and repeat.

On the blank number track they could find their age, the number in their family , age of dog etc to make it real.

Record these numbers on the track.

If they are enjoy the challenge do this with larger numbers working out what number come next to and above and below a number. Only give them the red number.

e.g         45

    54     55  56

             65

TOPIC – Food diary

 Look at the Artist Giuseppe Arcimboldoand work. He has used fruit and vegetable to make sculpture faces.

-Giuseppe-Arcimboldo-

Try and imitate these in your own way.

It will be fun to see the results.

Thank-you again!

Next week we will be writing instructions for planting seeds and the book 'Going on a Bear Hunt' by Michael Rosen.

Hope to see you in your uniforms tomorrow!

Take care,

Mrs Oddy

Talk about mass. If an object has a lot of mass it is heavy. Do all heavy objects sink?

What can you do to make an object float that sinks?

Thank - you for your continued support!

EXERCISE

Go Noodle/Joe Wicks/ Yoga (cosmic Yoga) or just walk round the garden.

PHONICS and Reading

Red words: I, the, to, love no, go, all, small, tall, call, my, by, he, me, be, we, she, of, said, you, saw, how, was, they, some, come, are, water – New red word : one two

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ

9.30  am    set 1 sounds for recap sh this could be useful

Ship

10.00 am   set 2 sounds looking at the ee sound

Have a go at reading these words.

See

weed

three

been

seen

Sleep

Hold the sentence: I can see the seeds.

You can make up your own just make sure your child is not just copying your sentence they are working it out themselves.

 

e.g The cart has two wheels.

Number -

Counting forwards and backwards. Sing days of the week and months of the year if you can remember these.

You need groups of objects today up to 20.

Talk about a good estimate. If it is nearly right it is a good estimate.

We can think in our head what 5 or 10 looks like.

Put the objects into piles and label them.

less than 10                     less than 20                   between 10 and 20

Then count to see what is a good estimate.

Now put 10 pasta shapes in a tub and shake them. Secretly add more - can your child make a guess at the amount in the tub? More or less? Then a number removing or adding items.

This can be played outside estimating number of sheep in the field, birds, flowers etc.

 

TOPIC- Food diary

Today is the Cancer Research running/exercise challenge.

Here is a power point of information all about how to be healthy.

Healthy Eating and Living

Get out into your gardens or do a big walk thinking of helping other people who are less fortunate then yourself. This might be a good time to talk to your child about worries that they may have and reassure them that they are safe with you and if they do get ill that we have our amazing NHS to look after us all and help us to get better.

GOOD LUCK!

I will be running with Mrs Barker in the school grounds.

Race for Life

admin on: Reception

So the Netherthong Race for Life is tomorrow at 1pm! I know so many of you have organised your own event in your gardens and surrounding areas. We have had so much support through the fundraising link, we are now at around 75% of our £1000 target. Please keep sharing this link so that we can reach our goal.

If you take any photos or videos of your event, please email them to class2@netherthongprimary.co.uk  If you send in your pictures, we will automatically presume you give us permission to use on the website and other sites associated with Cancer Research. I hope to put some kind of montage together when I recover from running around the playground! This will be a wonderful whole school collaboration at a time when we can’t be together. Good luck – knowing that you are all there will spur me on, I’m sure!

Happy running!

Mrs Barker

Home Learning - Monday 11th May

admin on: Reception

Monday 11th May

Hello everyone, I hope you all have had a lovely weekend talking to family members or neighbours (from a safe distance) about their memories of VE day or just enjoying this special day. 

Here are a few photo's of last week.

Here we go!

EXERCISE

Go Noodle/Joe Wicks/ Yoga (cosmic Yoga) or just walk round the garden.

PHONICS  and Reading (Oxford owl ebooks available)

Handwriting: c a g o

 Red words:  I, the, to, love no, go, all, small, tall, call, my, by, he, me, be, we, she, of, said, you, saw, how, was, they, some, come,, are water – New red word : one two

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ

9.30  am    set 1 sounds for recap

10.00 am   set 2 sounds looking at the ay  sound

Have a go at reading these words.

way

play

say

day

 May

Spray

Hold a sentence: The month is May or I can play in the day.

 

 

 NUMBER – This week we are counting sets of objects, ordering numbers, reading and writing numbers.

Key Vocab – guess, how many? More/less, about, between nearly, fewer

You will need a set of objects up to 20 (pasta/buttons/beads/pencils/) socks and numbers to 20.

- Warm up- Fill 2 socks with small objects (start with low numbers). Your child needs to guess how many objects are in each sock and match this to a written number. Remind them as it’s a guess (estimate) if they are wrong it doesn’t matter they just need to be as close as they can.

Empty out the socks count to check. The language used is: Are there more or less/fewer than your guess?

How many more or less/fewer? How can we work this out?

Get the children to close their eyes and imagine looking at 5 pencils.

Show your child 3 pencils briefly. Were there more than 5 or less?

Say – we can guess there were fewer than 5

We guess the number of pencils was less than 5 so we made a good guess.

Discuss would 30 be a good guess? No

Repeat with different groups of objects (7/4/5/2) staying with the 5 in your head.

Introduce vocabulary through questioning.

e.g Are there more than 3, about 5, nearly 10:is the number more than 10? Is it less than 20? Is it between 10 and 20?

Family activity.

Add objects to a container. Go round the family and ask them to guess how many are in the pot. Write the answers down.  Open the container and count them to see who has made the best guess.

 Maths Seeds is available and your maths books.

TOPIC

What is a fruit?

It is actually the part of the plant that keeps the seeds safe. If you cut into any fruit you will find seeds. Berries like strawberries have their seeds on the outside. Fruit is often soft and  juicy  so if it drops from a tree it will protect the seeds inside like a pear, apple or an orange. The fruit is also food for the seeds to start to grow. 

You can continue the food diaries adding the fruit that you eat each day.

It is recommend by the government to eat 5 different types of fruit or vegetables a day to get all the vitamins and minerals you need to keep healthy.

In my house we all love fruit and vegetables,.

If you are unsure about trying new foods I recommend that you lick the fruit first to try its flavour then maybe cut 'fairy' bites.  Little steps are needed to introduce new foods. Again don’t worry too much about spellings of the fruit and vegetables.

Oliver’s Fruit story 5 mins

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcTprkImlmI

If this is not available the fruit discussed are.

apples, grapes, pears, cherries, strawberries, plums and bananas.

Can you remember any of the fruit in the story?

Which of these fruit do we grow in this country? Why? 

 Talk about the different fruits you have in your house and find out which countries they have come from.

Can you find these countries on a map?

If available cut open a fruit to find the seeds. You can have a go at planting them to see if the will grow. Remind yourself of what a seeds will need to grow? There is also a bit of fraction work here. Two halves makes a whole, 4 quarters makes a whole.

Click here to name a few different fruit and vegetables.

A look at different fruit and vegetables

Don't forget the race for life is on tomorrow afternoon. Myself and Mrs Barker will be running round the school field.

Good work today well done.

Mrs Oddy.

Woof to you all!

admin on: Reception

Image preview

I hope you are all ok and staying safe. I'm still staying at home. We are having fun and having extra cuddles here.

I had a really special weekend because it was my 10th birthday! Wow, I ate so many sausages! I had loads of balloons, a sausage cake and a dinosaur party with games! We even had dog music, my favourite. Lucky for me the weather was lovely and we got to have a picnic in our garden. I wore a party hat but only for a few minutes because it made my ears tickle. My family asked me to wait to open my presents until the morning and it was hard because I could sniff the tasty treats inside! Afterwards, I had a lovely long sleep and dreamt about running and barking to the hokey cokey. I enjoy that dance and know all of the moves.

I can't wait until I see you again at school and we can chat about our time staying at home and all the things we've done with our families. I hope you and your families are ok and hope to see you woofy soon.

Love and paws,

Mr Curly Wurly xxx

Morning everyone!

Monday 4th May remote learning

A big thank-you to everyone for getting in touch last week. It is important that we keep in regular contact with all the members of our class.

Just to ease confusion, Mrs Hemingway and myself both can read and respond to emails from the reception@netherthongprimary.co.uk address.

If you want to talk to one of us in particular just add our names to the email. 

Here are a few photos I received on Friday.

Here is a fun activity to try. Kims game.

You need a selection of 3D shaped objects. Tin, box, tube, dice, pyramid could be tricky, ball.

Name them all then hide them all under a piece of material.

Take one away without your child looking. They then have to guess the missing shape and describe a features.

E.g  I think it’s the cube it has 6 faces. It has 8 corners. It has 12 edges. It does not roll it slides.

Take it in turns.

Build with Lego. You might want to repeat one of Miss Hemingway’s Lego challenges.

-Mathseeds is available I have added a shape lesson this week.

TOPIC

Start a food diary writing down all the fruit and vegetables or food you eat this week.

Explain that this is called a list. e.g

Monday

Banana

 apple

Salad- cucumber, lettuce, plum tomatoes

Potatoes, peas, carrots.

Don’t worry too much about spellings of the fruit and vegetables.

 If this is available watch: The story of Oliver's Vegetables

by  Alison Bartlett and Vivian French

Recite the days of the week.

Can you remember the order of the vegetables?

Monday-Carrots

Tuesday-Spinach

Wednesday-Rhubarb

Thursday-Cabbage

Friday-Beetroot

Saturday-Peas

Sunday-Potatoes

Talk about the different vegetables you have in your house/garden and find out which countries they might have come from if they are not grown in the UK.

Can you find these countries on a map?

Good work today well done.

Then have a go at a chocolate recipe.

We (my children and myself) made rice crispy buns and chocolate chip scones!

There are so many discreet learning opportunities in cooking. Have fun!

Talk about weighing ingredients, melting of chocolate, where the ingredients have come from.

Have a good weekend and thank-you for all your continued support - I really mean that.

******************************************************************************

Next week we will be looking at the story Oliver's Vegetables and VE day, Victory in Europe. It is 75 years since the end of World War 2.

The week after the story will be Oliver's fruit.

The last week will be How to Grow a Sunflower and Van Gogh.

Then maybe the Bear Hunt!

If you have these books it will be good to dig them out or you may want to add them to your collection.

Vegetables mentioned in the story for next week  are carrots, peas, cabbage, spinach, beetroot, potatoes, rhubarb. 

If some of these are available next week that would be great.

FINALLY 

PLEASE SPONSOR AND SHARE THIS LINK TO RAISE MONEY FOR CANCER RESEARCH.

IT WILL EFFECT US ALL.

If you like to be creative you might even decide to swap your games with your penpal.

Topic

African patterns are just amazing. They are influenced by their surroundings.

Watch the powerpoint (if available) then go outside and see if you can find patterns in nature in your own garden.

African-patterns-information

You can then do a pen and ink picture as the one below using patterns you have seen or something creative.

You might add colour or make another mosaic with the patterns in mind.

Thank-you for your photos and support.

cook

Hold the sentence. E.g  Look I can read a book. Look I can cook. or Look I can read a book and cook.

Number – Counting backwards

Quick quiz -Re-visit shapes. Ask you child to point to a square, circle, triangle, rectangle  and tell you something about the shape. E.g it has 3 sides.

Practise counting forwards and backwards to 20.

 Can we count backwards quickly from 7/9/10 to 0 ?

From          5-3    and       8-1     

Now         25-23   and       55-53

and then

              28-21   and        58-51

Repeat until they have got it.

Try counting back one from 20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90.                e.g 20, 19           30, 29         

-My favourite activity for this is the backward dot to dot if this is available. You can easily make your own. Just complete a dot to dot sheet but backwards by starting at the largest number. Look at the patterns of numbers going backwards.

Maths seeds is also available.

TOPIC

African animals

Look at the PowerPoint or research what different animals they have in Africa.

African Animals

Have a go at a mosaic college of an animal. If you have a magazine or newspaper these make a great effect if you cut them up into little squares/ sort them into colours and off you go.

If this is not available you might just want to choose your favourite animal and look at the shapes involved to draw it and have a go.

Underneath write your sentence.

My African animal is a ………... It has a trunk. Its has 4 legs. It has thick skin.

Good work.

On Friday we are looking at the production of chocolate. I will put up some simple chocolate recipes tomorrow in case you want to get the ingredients so you can make something.

Thank -you for your support.

Monday 27th April

Good morning.

I can't believe the sun is still shining.

Last week may have been a bit tricky for us all, coming back into some sort of homeschooling and work routine.

I have really felt it myself as I did not sign up for a desk job, which is what I feel I am doing now.

Could I ask a favour from you this week? Please could you get in touch via email if you have not already done so, just to let me know how you are all getting on during these tricky times?

Thank-you to those who I have already heard from. You are all doing amazingly and sharing many of your ideas and images of yourselves. Lets have another positive week, I truly have brilliant parents. PLease contact me at : reception@netherthongprimary.co.uk

Here we go!

Enjoy all the quality time and take a break  when needed.

Count in 10's to 100

Count in 2's to 10/20

This week we are going to be focusing on developing number and counting skills.

The vocabulary needed is all the number names up to 100.

Five suggested activities below.

1 - Play lucky number. You need a dice. 

Write a number down numbers 1-6  on a piece of paper circle  1 lucky number.

Roll the dice 10 times and tick now many times it lands on each of the numbers.

How many times did it land on your lucky number?

2- Be a number word detective today and look around the house and in the street.

How many number names you can see?

3- Make a badge I a five/four.

4- Play a game with domino and number names and numerals matching them (see below).

5- Give your child opportunities to write numbers names on a list. e.g How many apples are left in the bowl? How many people live in our house?

one two three four five six seven eight nine ten.

TOPIC

Africa - look for Africa on a map.

Look how many countries make up Africa (over 40).

Can you find Kenya the country where the story of Handa's surprise was set?

Can you find out anything about this country?

Below is a link to a clip of a child talking about living in Kenya.

What is daily life like in urban Kenya?

A child living on the outskirts of Nairobi is followed through a typical school day. Nana describes her day, from breakfast time through to the evening.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zmqtfg8

What are the similarities and differences with Nana's life compared to yours?

e.g You both have breakfast.You both go to school in a uniform....

If possible can you look up the flag of Kenya and make it out of materials or draw it and colour it in?

What do you think the symbols are?

Kenyan Flag  Print out of flag if this is available.

Thank-you for all your support.

Good Morning.

Thursday 23rd April - St Georges day.

LITERACY

Recap on the story and note which animal takes which fruit.

handa_powerpoint

Today we are going to use the 00 sound to write a few sentences at least 3 with the 00 sound as in 'took'

Talk about capital letters, finger spaces, and full stops.

e.g  

The monkey took the banana.

Or

The monkey took the soft yellow banana.    Whichever is right for your child.

The elephant took the red mango. 

Or

The elephant took the ripe red mango.

Don't worry if they spell orange as orinj or elephant as elefant  but I would like to see 'sweet' 'round' 'green' words spelt correctly as they should be familiar with the ee and ou sounds. Gently remind them.

Draw a picture to finish off your favourite part of the story.

Break

NUMBER    Ordinal numbers

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zhsspg8/articles/zn4ynrd

See if your child can see any numbers as you go on your daily walk?

Ask the question which colour car is 3rd in the line or point to the 2nd tree.

At home on your stairs/steps ask your child to place their teddy on the 4th step 10th step etc. Then you place the teddy on a step and your child has to tell you which step it is on.

Mathseeds is always available and here are a few practical ideas.

TOPIC

St Georges Day if you want to find out more about this day click the link below.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/lets-celebrate-st-georges-day

Today is the start of Ramadan which is part of the Islamic faith. During this month Muslims won't eat or drink between dawn and sunset. This is called fasting.

Fasting is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, which form the basis of how Muslims live their lives. The other four pillars are faith, prayer,charity and making the pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca. (find it on a map) Remind your child that Amir's mummy came into school and talked to the children about the faith.

Here is a short clip to watch.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/23286976

Here is a short quiz about Ramadan.

LITERACY

Act out a story or sing the song from Wednesday. You should be familiar with this now.

Use your instruments to tap out the beat.

Have a go at filling in a story map. This is just the sequence of events that happen in the story.

Use the mathematical language to order the story;

1st was the monkey and banana, 2nd Ostrich and guava, 3rd Zebra and the orange, 4th Elephant,and the mango, 5th Giraffe and the pineapple, 6th Antelope and the avocado, 7th Parrot and the passion fruit.

You can draw your own map on a piece of paper and label what happens on the way.

Here is a map you can copy or print off if this is available to you.

Story Map

NUMBER

As they are getting dressed your child can say in what order they are putting on their clothes. e.g

First I will put on my T shirt. 2nd I put on my jumper. etc.

You can sequence any event or routine in the day.

1st exercise, 2nd phonics, 3rd break, 4th number, 5th lunch.....

Outside hold races and give prizes. Create a track. You could play yourself or use objects such as  cars, teddies during imaginative play.

If you make a podium and medals this can be fun. 

TOPIC

If you haven't already done so, make a fruit salad and talk about where the fruit has come from and what else can grow in this country.

Thank-you for all your support. Everything you do really helps.

Have a good weekend.

Mrs Oddy 

P.S Next week we are researching and comparing Africa to the UK and locating Kenya on the map, which is the country where the Handa's Surprise story was set.We will also be looking at the different sorts of animals. 

Please feel free to email:

 reception@netherthongprimary.co.uk with any questions or photos. I will be posting photos on Friday with the children's work they have sent me.

Good morning!

Here is a fun day.

Start with some exercise I always feel this helps me to wake up.

P.E

Go noodle/Joe Wicks/Yoga 

 https://www.gonoodle.com/

PHONICS

Read Write Inc - I watched this yesterday and it is just how we do it. 

 10 am    ay sound today 10.15 continued with the word time.

(It is repeated for 24 hours so don't worry if you miss it at this time)

https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/find-out-more/help-during-school-closure/

BREAK

NUMBER - Using ordinal numbers. 1st 2nd 3rd 4th .... You could make medals.

Make a line of 10 teddy toys. Ask your child to point to the 1st and 3rd toy .....

What place is you dog teddy? 

Put them in size order and do the same. Use cars down a ramp which went the furthest. They came ....... 1st - which car was second? 

Write family names. Where is the r in the name Tara?

Your child needs to use the special names e.g It is 3rd.

MUSIC

Either make something into a drum or just get a pan and wooden spoon or two sticks from the garden to bang together or make a shaker. It's your choice and try to keep the beat to the song.

Listen to the song for Handa's surprise. (I hope it works for you!)

I have attached the words for you to sing along.

If this link does not work for the music just make up your own melody to the words and drum along.

Handa Handa walk to see Akeyo..

Here is the playscript for you to act out the story of Handa. You can act this out and sing as you go.

Craft

Here are a few ideas you might like to try.

Painting with something other than a paint brush.

If you have a paper plate this would be ideal or you could just cut out a ring from card.

If you don't have any of the above you can always use natural materials outside.

We should have been starting tennis sessions this term so if you take a ball outside in the garden and practice some throwing and catching and aiming games that would be great. 

Thank- you

Reminder about Read Write Inc Phonics sessions on Monday to Friday.

admin on: Reception

Just a reminder about the free RWI phonics online sessions everyday Monday to Friday. A two week programme which will be repeated.

Set 1 -9.30 and again at  12.30 am 

Set 2 -sounds 10 am and spelling 10.15 am and again at 1 pm

Most of our children are on set 2 sounds but need to occasionally revise the set 1 especially: ng nk th sh ch qu

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ

Most children now will be onto the green books. There are fiction and non-fiction. If these are too tricky stick to the red ditties for now until your child becomes confident.  Remember it's not a race - we need to instill enjoyment in reading.

These books you can find on Oxford Owl. If greens are too easy go onto the pinks.

Thank you and have fun.

Remote Learning 20th and 21st April 2020

admin on: Reception

Welcome back to the Blogs from Netherthong Reception class.

I have been doing a lot thinking over the holidays (overthinking) and have decided to do a two day blog. This will take the pressure off you and me both.

If you don't manage one day or your child is just not in the mood it's ok. Wednesday will be a little shorter with more science and art activities so you are able to catch up or just take a breath.

If anyone has any ideas to add please email me. It's important to go with the children's interests.

I hope you are all well and have enjoyed the lovely weather. Everyone has up and down days but the most important thing is give yourself space to breathe and to be kind to yourself and others. 

In our house we have been out every day walking, running or biking. I only go shopping once a week on my day off, Wednesday. I like to keep to a routine.

We have been busy playing games, baking and keeping fit.

My children also need some time on social media to chat to their friends as it is important for them to keep connected. 

OK lets go!

 If you could get the fruit associated with the story Handas surprise for this week that would be fantastic!

7 fruits or similar ones to the story.

"Banana, orange, tangerine, pineapple, mango, avocado, passion fruit I use an apple for a guava".

Don't worry what varieties you get as long as there is 7 in total to make the story real.

Here we go!

Monday   20th April    

Start with the exercise.

GoNoodle/Joe Wicks/yoga or just a walk round the block.

 If you didn't see the Historical book to fill in this is also a good start if you are able to print it off or just use the ideas on the sheets.

We have done this in my house but not all in a day!

Historical account of the time in isolation

Phonics/Reading

Reading a little every day is important. You can choose the best time to do this. Reading their own sentences, sentences in books you are reading together. Sentences or words round the home are all fantastic opportunities to read for meaning.

Recap on digraphs

ch sh th ng nk ay ee igh ow oo 00 ar or air ir ou oy - flash cards are the best way to learn these.

Have a go at this activity. I will be putting on one a day.

Literacy

It is important for the children to talk about their feelings and what is on their mind, things they have enjoyed or not.

They need to be able to talk in  sentences holding the interest of the listener expanding in some detail what they are trying to say.

Ask them what they have enjoyed doing over the last few weeks. The may need prompting. Only a few ideas will be needed. 

This will be a nice idea for them to do today as a gentle start back to the home schooling routine. 

Then help your child write a few sentences or scribe for them and then they draw a picture of some of the things they did. Then read the sentences back. here are some examples:

I went on a walk in the wood. I planted some seeds in the garden.

I made some round buns. I found a bug in the grass. I can see the birds in the sky. 

Number task - We are looking at ordering and and comparing numbers this week to 20

Vocab- order, first, next,after, before, smallest,largest,one, more,one,less, count, right.

Ask your child to fine the number 1-10/20 in order around the home.

e.g on pages in a book,a clock,a microwave, TV remote..............

They could make their own book and number the pages. (Ready to write their own recount of Handa's surprise.)

Make individual towers of bricks 1 2 3 4 ......put in order of height by counting the cubes. Predict how many cubes will be in the next tower?

If you have number cards 1-20 or 30-50 ect. Order these forwards and backwards and horizontal and vertical.

Well done.

Tuesday 21st April

Exercise. - Jo wicks/ Go Noodle/ Yoga

Phonics

Segment the words to hear the sounds.e.g  b-a-th    k-i-ng  sh-e-ll. Check for good pencil control and letter formation.

Literacy

We are becoming familiar with the story of  Handa's Surprise by Eileen Browne you can find the story on utube.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyIV_xYi0as      - Link

Handa's Surprise powerpoint. - this will help see the story slowly and its a fun powerpoint.

Can you make Handa's hair and body using natural materials?

Now describe her.

e.g Handa is a girl. She has brown skin. She has a pink dress. She has sandals on. She has long black hair. 

The can us the word and  to connect two sentences together but this is tricky as they need to remember more!

Read the sentences out to you.

Number

You will need 3 / 4 plastic cups. Add various amounts of pasta/buttons into the cups and see if your child can count accurately the amount in each cup and put them in order.

ext .. Can your child put in oder 3/4 non consecutive numbers? e.g 12  6  17  11

Look on mathseeds for extra work. Also number blocks ordering numbers.

Craft

Have a go at weaving.

This is just one idea, you can use anything including natural materials.

Have fun.

Thank-you for your support.

Good Morning!

Well it's Friday again and the second week of home schooling.

I can see you have now relaxed more into your new roles. I know many of you are juggling jobs as well like myself.

I will put on some fun things to do over the holiday but I will not be blogging work everyday.

Also I know Miss Hemingway has a treat in store for you all too.

Fun Fun day today.

Go Noodle or Joe Wicks.

Phonics/reading/writing

Here is our Friday Fun phonics

.Reading- Fun Quiz 

Treasure Hunt Rhyme

Today you can hide some treasure around the house or in the garden and write your own clues for someone to find it. The other person can hide treasure too, so you can read the clues and find their hidden treasure.

Example of clues.

1.Hop to the steps.

2.Go up the stairs.

3.Skip to the bathroom.

4. Slither to the bedroom.

5.Jump to the corner.

6. Look under the bed!

Repeat as many times as you want to inside and out.

Outside you could count how many different flowers you can spot. Can you name them? 

On a pre-drawn egg shape decorate it with patterns.

Here are some for you to download and print

.Easter-Egg-Mindfulness-Colouring

Hello everyone.

Yes were are still here no joke today.

Yesterday, after JO Wicks, I did 30 mins reading with Drew (my son) and then posted some photos to the blog page. I ventured to the shops, chose lunch time to avoid the queue but no luck. At least people are doing the right thing and queuing. We are all fine at my house, so far its just our cat Cobbles who's feeling a bit sore as she has been in a fight.

Here we go with today's activities.

Go noodle/Jo Wicks - This really helps me focus on the day.

Phonics/Reading/Writing

Phonics Digraph - ay ee igh ow 00 oo ar

or- shut the door

air-that's not fair

ir-whirl and twirl

ou-shout it out

oy-toy for a boy

 These last few will be new for some children. They might need to practise saying and writing the sound.

Read red words as yesterday

Here are the 2 set's of 'Green Words' which include the digraphs learnt to date. Just do 10 words at a time.

If you save the power points then you can refer to it regularly until the children can read and then are able to write the words fluently. It would be a good idea to mix the words up. Here are all of them don't be overwhelmed take it easy.

Set 1 Green Words     

Set 1 should be familiar to your child they do get progressively harder. Your child eventually will be able to read all of the words if they practise.

Learning to read is a very individual process and happens at different times for children so please be patient with them. Have a go at sounding out (segmenting) about 5 to spell.

Set 2 Green Words

These are the ones we have been  learning and some are not familiar with the children but just keep practising and putting them into a sentence. 

Good Luck

 Today we are looking at the Easter story. It's an important  Christian Celebration and the one celebrated with the greatest of joy.

Starting on the 9th April Maundy Thursday, 10th Good Friday,  Holy Saturday and Palm. Sunday. Below is an animated clip all about the story.

After watching it, you could discuss if the story is a sad or happy time or both?

How the characters ( Jesus, Mary and the disciples) were feeling throughout the story?

How did Jesus feel throughout the story?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/religious-studies-ks1-the-christian-story-of-easter/zhgv47h

The children could draw and annotate a picture of the Easter story in their own way. Can you remember the  symbol that represent Jesus? 

Break

Ditty Book 'Get Writing'. Have another go at another page. You are doing really well with these from what I have seen.

Break

Number work - you need a dice and a piece of paper

Look at symmetry in nature. Use the internet to research this.

Draw 6 butterflies/ladybirds outline shapes on an A4 spaced out.

Your child rolls a dice and places that number of spots on the wings/body of the butterfly/lady bird.

They then make it symmetrical by adding the correct amount of dots on the other side. How many spots do you need to make it symmetrical?

This can now be used for doubling questions.

There are 3 spots and we need 3 more to make it symmetrical.

How many spots all together? They could even write the number sentences to go with the doubling underneath.

3+3=6     2+2=4      5+5=10 underneath each drawing representing it.

Extension:Look at the end total number is it odd or even? Why?

Break

You can make your buns today to decorate as flowers or chocolate nests.

If you are cooking with eggs look at the egg before it is cooked.

The white and the yolk. Eggs are a good source of protein, great for muscle growth and the yolk contains iron which is needed to keep your blood healthy. What happens to the egg when the it is cooked?

Break

Fresh air and walking is always good for the immune system. We usually have a  Forest School session now in the afternoon so you can always to out to the woods or on a walk and see if you can spot some natural patterns of symmetry. Your child could take a picture of it using their IT skill. Doing rubbings with wax crayons is also a fun activity.

Have a good day.

Thank - you everyone.

Today we are going to look at the ck sound and write about chicks.

  Click here for the power point!             Chick Information 

Draw a chick in your green books and write a few sentences about what you remember about the chick. Try and use the word and to join two simple sentences together. Start with the simple sentences and then try a longer one. It is hard for the children to 'HOLD' longer sentences in their heads so you can clap the sentence whisper the sentence shout the sentence. We do this in school so they will understand.

e.g The chick is small and yellow. 

A hen lays the eggs and sits on them for 14 days.. 

 The chick pecks the egg and comes out of the shell.

Tuesday 31th March

admin on: Reception

Good morning!

Well this is the second time I have written this today as I accidentally deleted the other one!

I hope every one is getting into the new daily routine.

I keep telling my children at home, this is not a holiday so lets do some home learning before you have a break.

It is important that your child still feels connected to their class or relatives. 

Here are some good ideas I have seen form other children: writing letter, drawing a pictures and then electronically sending them. 

I tried the Jo Wicks P.E 9 am yesterday in school but I don't think those twist with the sword were good for my back so I will stick to the 'Go Noodle'

Go Noodle

Register, day,date, month and weather. I saw a lovely weather chart today from an email i received which I will share later in the week.

Phonics/Reading/Writing

Handwriting; Gg Bb Dd

Red Ditty Booklet  'Get Writing' do the next ditty in the book. (don't forget not to copy the sentence hold it in your head)

Break

Topic Spring :All about plants.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zpxnyrd/articles/z3wpsbk

Watch the Video clips about plants, play the quiz and then go outdoors and look at real plants.

Now draw a plant and label the parts of the plant. 

Root

Shoot

Stem

Leaf

Petal

Can you tell the grown-up what all the parts of the plant are for?

If are able, you might like to grow some cress seeds.

Break

Maths - You can look for patterns in nature out-side, pattern in the curtains bedding and clothes you are wearing. Look at photo graphs of insect (butterflies), leaves petal plants. There is a lot of symmetry and patterns in nature. If you have a small mirror you could experiment with looking at the symmetry of a leaf or flower.

You may want to do a page in you number books today.(you can order more of these on Amazon £3 each)

CraftEaster craft ideas

Tomorrow we are looking at eggs and chicks, so I might be nice to make some buns tomorrow using eggs so you can decorate them like a flower?

If you still need an extra Challenge you could write a Spring poem in you books or on special paper and decorate it. Here are some ideas.

You can always keep adding to it as you think of more things.

Spring is growing

Spring is Lambs

Spring is buds

Spring is blossom

Spring is sun

Spring is birds

Spring is chick

Spring is chocolate eggs

Spring is Easter egg hunts.

Thank -you for all your hard work. Miss Hemingway and Mrs Hemingway are looking, reading and posting photos from the emails you are sending. They really enjoy seeing all the hard work you are doing. 

Stay safe.

Hello from Mr Curly Wurly

admin on: Reception

Woof Woof!

Hello to all the children and staff at Netherthong Primary School,

It's Mr Curly Wurly here and I want to say hello to you all.

Lots of things are different for me at the moment and I've heard it's different for you too so I hope you're all ok and staying safe. I miss you all and hopefully very soon I'll get to see you again. I'm very happy that we've got sausages and my toys at home to play with because we have to stay at home for a while. Sometimes I'm reading books too especially when there's a dog in the story. I'm getting very good at drawing and shapes.

I'm thinking about you all and your families.
I hope to see you soon and take care of yourselves.

Love and paws
Mr Curly Wurly

Good morning, super parents!

Great programmes are on Cbeebies and just heard Steve Backshall is on tomorow after Jo wicks on utube 

 I did read that home schooling for young children should only be work based for 1-2 hours a day.

9.30 Steve Backshaw live 

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm-URP49TgSgyIU1rgh2m7A/

Well, I didn't watch much news yesterday and felt better for it. The sun was so lovely. I hope you spent much of the day in your gardens and playing like I did with my own children.

Essentials.

Read and Read to your child. Absorb them in rich language. If you have Big Cats home school reading book there are activities in the back!

 Write - A sentence with capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. 

You can do this in the green book with the topic writing  or Ditty book Get Writing.

 Improving letter formation, practice  n h m l  t.

Mathematics - However appropriate using different media, books, mathseeds and practical.

Play 

Most other areas of learning can be done  through play, talking looking up information and our amazing technology and apps.

Here are you suggested activities for the day. 

Go Noodle

Register - those teddies and dinners. Say the day, month and date and the weather outside.

Phonics/Literacy

First Flash the speed sounds and red words. Have a go at reading the the sounds with ay in them lay may play tray clay stay ect.

Next  look at the the powerpoint Facts about spider.

SPIDERS[1].ppt

Then open the poem writing frame you can copy this out. This is your rough work. On Friday the children can copy their poems neatly onto nice lined paper or into the green books.  

Spider poem template.docx

Have a go at this poem  activity together it could be fun. 

Break

Mathematics - number book or mathseeds number block on Cbeebies.

You could always make the cube today that came with you green book and turn it into a spider house. Talk about how many corners it has and  faces. Look at how is is made from six squares. 

Again use you imagination with number sentence stories. There are 3 Black Birds in the garden and 6 Robins join them how many all together? 

If you feel you can have a go at making a healthy spider with ingredients you may have around. You can always share you creations on watsapp.

These are some they made last year using Oreo biscuits, strawberry laces and fruit. Don't feel yours has to look anything like this. 

Maxwell's spider writing yesterday! Top marks.

Good luck and enjoy the sun while its still out!

Wednesday day 3

admin on: Reception

To all my lovely parents.

I can just say you are all amazing!

I have not found this situation easy, being a parent myself also.  Today, receiving some gorgeous photos of the children has put this  into perspective.

Lots of messages flying round on Face Book but this sums it up:

There is no academic emergency this week, so don't be so quick to set up a home school. Our country is in crisis and we are all stressed and tired. Stressed adults can't teach stressed children. It is a neuro-Biological impossibility. Try focusing on connections and feelings of safety.

Having said that I love all your efforts at home. Its only day 3... your children will be fine; Every day they just need to read and be read to,write a sentence or two and find maths games to play including baking, Uno, Domino's, cards, snap, board games and playing with each other and with their toys..

So Wednesday (my day off you can have one to if you want).

Go noodle - Dance

Register those teddies! Count them, sort them into two different groups work out some number stories.

There are 6 teddies and 3 are playing outside how many are left? There are 2 teddies in the sand and 6 teddies in the home corner how many all together?

 If available you can record these.

Phonics/Literacy/reading

No Ditty book today unless you wan to.

If you have the RWI cards now's the time to flash them.

Did the children make those red words from yesterday don't worry if not but if so now is the time to flash those too.

INFORMATION for writing.

Spiders_facts[1].ppt

Not sure this will work if you don't have power point but you can always look up spider facts.

Have a go at writing some spider facts in the green book and draw a spider. Here are some ideas they could write. Try to let them think first. Don,t worry too much about the spelling just help them to sound the simple ones out . They will be able to spell most of these words except for spider/eyes/spider-lings. Remind them of the ay sound for lay.  Just write as many or little as you child is motivated for minimum 2.

A spider has 8 long legs.

A spider can spin a web.

A spider has 8 eyes.

A spider can lay lots of eggs.

A spider has lots of spider-lings.

I hope they will enjoy this task. 

Have a break.

Maths - Continue with the number books or maths seeds and play games which incorporate hidden maths.

Here are some photos of the children today.

Jude finding a spider.

Elle being busy.

Just do as much or as little as you can every day.

If you want to go outside and construct a spider web that would be fun. 

Keep smiling and please don't feel under any pressure. Most children are at a good level already.

I will be in school Thursday and Friday this week.

Have a good day,

Mrs O
