Tuesday 2nd February – Reception
Happy Tuesday! I hope you are all keeping safe and well at home. It has been lovely to hear from so many of you letting me know all the lovely things you are doing at home.
This week is Mental Health week. Please check Marvellous me for today’s wellbeing activity.
Please remember I will do 2 drop-in zoom sessions a day, one at 10.30am and one at 2pm. You can ask any questions you wish to or show me some of your work. I will also read a story on an afternoon so feel free to drop in.
This mornings job is ‘Talking Tuesday’. I would like you to sit and chat to someone in your family about what you enjoy about being at home, what you don’t enjoy about being at home and what makes you excited to come back to school.
This morning our exercise is Yoga (disco style), I have loved seeing lots of pictures of you taking part in the Yoga. Please keep letting me know if you have enjoyed it.
Today, I would like you to watch the video to learn our new diagraph. I wonder if you can join in, then think of some words with the ‘qu’ diagraph in. Use one of those words to tell someone in your family a sentence with your word in.
Today, I would like you to do some experiments for maths. I would like you to collect some objects from around your house and experiment to see which is heavier and which is the lighter object.
You could do this by weighing the objects on some scales or you could hold one object in one hand and one in the other and see which you think is the heaviest. You could then get 2 buckets and put the objects in to see how heavy they are. Talk to someone in your family about why you think one is heavier than the other.
Today, we are going to look at a new author. Watch the video and join in with the story.
- Read a phonics book on oxford owl or you can read your own phonics book if you have one. Remember to keep practicing so you become fluent with reading. Free eBook library | Oxford Owl from Oxford University Press.
- Complete the activity from Mental Health Week on Marvellous Me.
- Find 11 objects in your house. Can you count forwards and backwards to 11.
- Sing some nursery rhymes. I am going to sing ‘5 little monkeys jumping on the bed’.
Well done Reception, your work for today is complete. I am so extremely proud of you all and please remember, if you need any thing I am always here.
