Hi Reception Class,

I hope you are all ok and you have enjoyed your week. You were all super during this week’s Zoom lessons. The sentences you wrote on Tuesday were amazing and you are all now remembering your finger spaces, Well done! I really enjoyed playing all the Maths games with you on Thursday and I still can’t believe how quick you are at finding and ordering numbers.

This week we are going to be looking at a new book. It is called ‘The Zoo Vet’ I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and I have planned lots of activities for you to do about the story. In Maths we are going to completing lots of repeating patterns. Again all of the activities below are either the same or very similar to the ones Mrs Bentzien is teaching to the children in school.

Looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday.

Lots of Love

For this week’s English work we will be looking at the new book ‘The Zoo Vet’,  click here to read the story.

Monday 6th- Look at the new story ‘The Zoo Vet’ discuss the front cover of the story. Talk about these questions: Who do you think he is? What do you think a zoo vet is? Which animals do you think he will help? Could it be an elephant? Could it be a dog? Why? Read the story and then talk about which Zoo animal is your favourite and why. Then write down your answer on this template (choose which one is best for your child).

Tuesday 7th- Zoom Learning with Mrs Murray

Wednesday 8th-  Today you will be writing about which animal visited the Zoo on each day. Look through the book identifying the correct animal for each day and write them into the correct box on this writing frame. Your child can write either just the animal or the animal’s name too (Giraffe or George the Giraffe).

Thursday 9th-  Use this writing frame to write what was wrong with each animal. Try to write in a simple sentence similar to the text from the story. You can chose how many animals you write about. Sentences are:

He had a sore throat.

She had a broken wing.

He had a temperature.

He had a bad cold.

She had a thorn stuck.

If your child is not yet confident writing in sentences they could write the part of the body the animal has hurt instead.

Friday 10th-  Read the whole story again and listen very carefully as today you will be answering these questions about the story. 

People Who Help Us Activities (Linked to the other Areas of Learning)

Paint a picture of your favourite zoo animal.

Talk about the days of the week and write a simple diary or you could write the day of the week and draw a picture underneath.

At the end of the story the vet gets poorly. Can you make him a get well card?

Can you set up a vet’s surgery for your soft toys at home? Can you check their temperature, apply bandages, wrap them up warm and listen to their heartbeats? You could write down their symptoms and the treatments they’ll need.

A vet is a very important job as they make animals better. Talk to a grown-up about what job you would like to have when you grow up.

Week Beginning 15th June – Home Learning

Hello Reception Class,

I am back after a wonderful maternity leave with my youngest daughter Betsy. Mrs Franklin has told me how amazing you all are and I am very excited to get to know you more. I hope that you are all well and have had a lovely weekend enjoying the sunshine again.

The home learning I have set might look a little bit different to how it has previously looked this is because we now have some Reception children learning in school with Miss Bentzien and I feel it is important that all children learn the same things and have similar activities to do. I have been busy planning lessons and activities for both the children learning in school and yourselves. I am also going to be doing two Zoom sessions each week with you. The first on a Tuesday morning at 9.30am which has an English/Phonics focus and the second one on a Thursday morning again at 9.30am which has a Maths focus. I am really looking forward to seeing you all! Any questions please email me on cmurray@mobberley.cheshire.sch.uk. I will be available to help Monday to Friday 8.30am to 12.30pm.

This week we are starting our new topic ‘People Who Help Us’ this is a great topic to do at the moment as there are so many people helping us all.

See you on Tuesday!

Love

Mrs Murray xx

Monday 15th– Watch the first part of this video introducing 1ps, 2ps and 5ps 

Have a pot with a selection of 1p, 2p and 5p coins. If you haven’t got any then you can print out these sheets for you to cut around and use. See if you can sort all of the coins into these three purses.

Tuesday 16th– Today you are a coin detective! Print out this template then ask a grown up to shout out 1p and you need to find all of the 1p coins and cross them out. Repeat this with 2p and 5p.

Wednesday 17th– Complete the activities on the How Much Money is in My Piggybank Power Point

Thursday 18th– Zoom Maths with Mrs Murray

Friday 19th– Today you will be counting up to 20p using 1p and 2p coins, when counting make sure you tap the coin the same times as its value so a 2p coin you tap twice. Complete the How Much Does the Ice cream Cost? activity.

People Who Help Us Activities (Linked to the other Areas of Learning)

Learn your address and practise what you would say if you were ever in an emergency and had to call 999. Have a go at role playing this with your grown up.

Draw or paint a picture of a person who has helped you in the last few weeks. You could write a sentence describing how they helped you.

Go for a walk and see if you can spot any people who help us or any emergency vehicles.

Use old junk boxes, bottles, lids and tubes to create your own emergency vehicle. Think about its features- sirens, hosepipes, ladders etc.

Create a thank you card to send to someone who has helped you.

Make a police station paper model using this template.

Play a memory game– Place 6 of the cards on a tray and cover with a towel or a piece of material. Look at the cards for 10 seconds, how many can you remember? Write them down! If you get really good at the game try hiding 8 cards.

Keeping in Touch

As many of you may be aware, Mrs Franklin has not been very well since school finished last Friday. She is unable to upload work or respond to emails at the moment. Staff have put together some websites below that you can access at home. If you would like more information about websites that are suitable for younger children, then you could look at my Year 1 page. 

Some things you can do at home:

  • Read a book every day
  • Practise Phase 3 phonics sounds from Letters and Sounds, as well as tricky words
  • Write some simple sentences with a capital, finger spaces and full stop e.g. I am a boy. I have a pet dog.
  • Practise writing letters and numbers
  • Practise counting numbers to 20

 However please do not worry too much about the academic side of things at home! Just enjoy your time with your family and stay healthy and happy.

If you have an urgent question about work then please contact me on estephenson@mobberley.cheshire.sch.uk  

Mrs Millington

Home Learning: As of Monday 23rd March 2020

 Week of 30th March 2020 Activities

Making Relationships and Being Imaginative

Take part in some role play with a family member, such as kitchen role play, going to the ball, saving the world etc.

Let your child lead the role play and think of their own ideas; encourage them to think about what might happen next. Can they use household items as props during their play? Can they think of new storylines?

Self Confidence and Self Awareness

Your family at home always need lots of help! Can you be their special helper and help out around the house? Do some cleaning, help with the cooking, organise your clothes or tidy your toys away.

Once you’ve done some special jobs, draw all of the things you have done to help! You could label them too if you wanted to.

Managing Feelings and Behaviour

Play a game with a family member that involves lots of turn taking such as a board game. Talk to your children about why it is important to share and how it makes people feel.

Moving and Handling and Exploring Media and Materials

Cut letters out from newspapers and magazines or ask somebody in your family to write down letters for you.

Fill an oven dish/ baking tray with flour or salt. Sand or something with this consistency will work just as well! Try to copy the letters into the flour using your finger.

Health and Self-Care

Dance to ‘shake your sillies out’! (Link Below).

When you have finished dancing, see if you are out of breath, if your heart is beating fast and if you have a warm head. Can you tell somebody why you think this is?

Shake Your Sillies Out!

Listening and Attention

Sing your favourite song to somebody  at home. Try to teach it to them to see if they can sing it as beautifully as you can!

Understanding

Find your favourite toy. Using a doll’s house or something similar, place your toy on the top, underneath, next to etc. Then see if you can do it with yourself; can you tell somebody where you are positioned? For instance, ‘I am on top of ___, I am next to _____, I am behind ______’

Reading

Read one of your favourite stories with somebody at home.

Join in with the story and tell the person you are reading with what you think will happen next.

Can you talk about who is in the story and where the story takes place?

Writing

Ask somebody in your family to write a shopping list.

What do you think it says?

Can you write one too?

Number

Ask somebody at home to write numbers on a piece of paper.

Can you match objects to each number?

e.g. 1 lego piece for the number 1, 2 lego pieces on number 2 etc.

Shape, Space and Measure

Go on a shape hunt around your home. Take photos of all of the shapes you find; can you name any of them?

People and Communities

Have a look at yourself in the mirror and then look at your family members. What is the same? What is different?
