Wednesday 22nd April

Hello again Reception! I beamed with pride today when I saw lots of you sending your fantastic work to the school twitter account! You have made me smile so much, we have bakers, mathematician, gardeners, super readers and writers I am so impressed!



Please join in with the daily RWI sessions on YouTube (link below). Each lesson is available for 24 hours so you can access it at whatever time is best for you. Each session has 3 parts which all link together, it would be fantastic if you completed each part. For set 1 sounds they should be completed in this order:

1. Speed sound lesson.

2. Word time lesson.

3. Spelling lesson.

If you are up for a challenge and already fully confident with your set 1 sounds (including writing words) you should access the set 2 sound and spelling lessons. I would be so pleased to see some of your fantastic writing, so if you could send it to the school twitter it would make me very happy.



As well as your reading during your phonics sessions I would love if you could read a book at home with someone, can you sound out some of the words? Can you find any tricky words? You can also access e-books on the Oxford Owl website for free! You just need to create a log in. Follow the link below and sign yourself up and select age range 4-5 and get reading! Today I am challenging you to reading a RWI book independently, try 'Sun Hat Fun'. Can you read the words by using Fred in your head?


Picture News

On the main home learning page I have added a section called 'Picture News' it contains information for your grown ups and some great activities for you. It will really get your brain working and I would love for you to have ago at it, possibly one small activity each day and let me know some of the ideas and thoughts you have. I will add a new picture and new activities for this each week.



I loved seeing some of your creepy minibeast shapes you drew yesterday! I wonder if you can find any 2D shapes around your house? Use the 2D shape mat below and see how many of each shape you can find (you might want to keep a tally chart!). Don't forget to check outside too! Which shape did you find the most of? Which shape did you see the least? Can you count the total for each shape, don't forget your careful counting! Challenge yourself to write the numeral.


Personal Social Emotional Development/RSE/Literacy

We have spoken alot in class about what makes a good friend and how we can be a good friend to others. I know we are all missing our friends right now so I thought it would be a nice idea if you drew a picture of one (or more!) of your special friends and wrote a list of things that make them a good friend. You could even challenge yourself to write a sentence about them. For example I would write, Mrs Lacey is my friend because she always helps me. Share your pictures and kind words on twitter for your friends to see, then they will know you're thinking about them!

Please find any links to websites I mention at the bottom of this page. 

Please keep up the super work and keep sending me pictures to make me smile! I’ll be back tomorrow with more challenges for you all.
Take care, Miss Pinnington.
