Reception News

Posted on May 10th, 2020


Another busy week for our Reception pupils. Alva has been doing some perfect writing and even had a go at writing on her blackboard. Ellenie has been busy writing sentences too. Georgina made some brilliant bunting and lots of tasty treats to celebrate VE day on Friday. Stellan has been a scientist this week and has been looking at different different materials and discussing if they are solid, liquid or gas. He has also been observing caterpillars and their journey through their change into butterflies. He also has a duck and her seven ducklings living in his garden and has been looking after them and feeding them from his own hand! Taliah has been working really hard for the whole period of isolation. She is working on her number of the day in this picture. She also has a new chicken called Burt. William built his own Lego crocodile this week. He followed the instructions by himself and built it perfectly. Harriet has been busy with phonics and Literacy. This picture was from a lovely video of her singing the alphabet song.

Thank you for your brilliant Tapestry entries.

Hi Everyone,

I am uploading phonics tonight. We are looking at common exception words in greater detail and thinking more about making our own sentences and writing those.

Maths has a focus on capacity and measurement this week. I will begin uploading these tomorrow. If you want to do the activities during the video then lesson 1 will require 2 jugs that will hold different amounts and then 2 teapots (or something different to jugs) that hold different amounts and water. For the stretch task after the video, you will need 3 cups, 3 teddies and a teapot.

The second lesson uses bottles of different capacity, a cup,labels, water and a funnel.

The third lesson uses rice, card to make you own cone, sellotape, a jug and a cup

The fourth lesson requires chalk, toy cars, a metre ruler or tape measure

You could just watch me do it on the video but it will be good for the children to have their own measuring to do either during or after the video as this will be a good opportunity to hear them talk about the activity and record any good quotes from their exploration.

I have recorded 4 phonics and 4 maths again so that you have a day to revisit anything that you think they might not have understood or could do with going over again. This will also give you time for music, science, DT and Literacy.

I hope that the science document that I sent you opened up ok as it was a big document. I haven’t set any new science as I don’t think that anyone has had time to do the music themed experiment that I set last week. The document and pages you need to look at are attached and referenced in last Sundays email.

I hope you have had a chance to look at the second Literacy lesson on information texts and that you have had a chance to start your own non-fiction information book on the topic of ‘people that help us’. I put a link onto the YouTube video for some good places to research your topic beforehand.

I hope everyone is doing well and feeling fine. There is now hope that we may all be together again before the end of the academic year and I look forward to this immensely.

Keep being excellent at Tapestry!
