Please send in your photos from last week's 'Where in the World' homework! If you missed the post, scroll down this page to see what you have to do!
We love to read!
Welcome to the reception class blog :)
We will update the blog every Friday with homework for the weekend.
There will also be other bits of news, children's learning and notices!
For homework this weekend...
At Virginia we are lucky enough to have children who have connections to places all over world!
We are going to make a display in the reception classroom to celebrate this and allow the children to talk about their families, cultures and what is important to them.
For your homework this week, ask your grown up about where they grew up, or where their parents are from.
Is it a different country? Or a different part of the UK? Or maybe it is in London!
Maybe you have some photos of visiting that place or a photo of you with your grandparents.
Have a think about what it special about that place, do they have a flag? Or a maybe there is a special food that you enjoy?!
We look forward to hearing about different places from all over the world!
You can email any photos, comments and explanations to firstname.lastname@example.org and put ‘for Lucy’ in the subject.
Good morning Reception !
I can't believe this is the last blog post of the school year :(
Well done to every single one of you for all of your fantastic learning.
You have been so brave during this time, you should be very proud of yourselves, we are definitely very proud of you.
Please spend this day celebrating yourself and everything you have achieved this year.
We hope you all have a brilliant summer.
Stay safe, be kind and have fun!
From Lucy, Faheema, Yumi and Aysha
Here is Year 4's brilliant play 'Fantastic Mr Fox' for you to enjoy
Today, let's recap the sound /or/
Now practise reading the /or/ sound with this 'Roll and Read' game.
Take turns to roll the dice and read a word in that line! You can use a dice or a dice generator like this if you don't have one. https://www.random.org/dice/?num=2
For maths, once you've shuffled and reordered your cards 1 - 20, practise your doubling and halving learn-its!
Now play snake and ladders. Print or copy the board to play. You can use the dice generator if you need!
Good morning Reception :)
Today we are practising the /oo/ sound. Watch the video below. Can you write a sentence using the /oo/ words?
Use this balloon popping game to practise ordering numbers 1 - 20.
For a challenge, start at 20 and order greatest (biggest) to smallest!
Good morning Reception!
Today we're going to recap another phase 3 sound.
Watch the session carefully and remember to send in your learning!
Have you ordered your number cards today?!
Now count in odd numbers and exercise with Jack! What odd numbers can you see around your home? Can you form each odd number correctly?
Good morning Reception.
It's the last week of term! I can't wait to see everyone this afternoon for our transition meetings :)
For phonics today we're recapping the air sound.
Last week in reception we read the story 'Cats Ahoy!' by Peter Bently and Jim Field.
Watch the story below.
Can you recreate some of the role play props we made?!
For maths, start by shuffling and reordering your cards 1 - 20! Can you test your 'one more' and 'one less' skills?!
Now take a look at this video on counting in odd numbers! Watch the video and sing along. Use the number square below to high light all the odd numbers!
Today let's listen to another Nick Butterworth story, 'One Springy Day'
For phonics, log in to Espresso and recap the /qu/ sound.
After you have ordered numbers 1 - 20, practise counting, matching and ordering numbers with this ladybird game!
Good morning Reception!
Look at these moments from our story 'After the Storm'.
Think carefully about each picture. What is happening? What had happened before? What will happen next?
What do you think the characters are saying to each other?
Choose one of the pictures, and then write a sentence for one of the speech bubbles. If you want a challenge, write in more than one speech bubble!
Start maths by shuffling and reordering your numbers. As a challenge, can you start with 20 and order them from greatest (biggest) to smallest? How long did that take you?!
This could be a great time to think about one less!
Each time you select the next number you can ask 'What's one less than ...' For example, 'What's one less than 13....?? 12!'
For a challenge you could ask, 'What's 13 takeaway 1?' and then write the number sentence
13 -1 = 12
Have a go at these subtraction problems below.
(Make sure you order your number line from 1 - 20 again before you start! Then you can use it to count backwards to solve the subtraction problems!)
