To Reception,

Good morning! smiley

We are so sorry that we cannot see you in school today. Hopefully we will be back in our classroom very soon and for today you can enjoy being cosy at home and completing your learning in your pyjamas if you want too! Please try your very best with your phonics, maths and writing at home - you can bring your learning into school to show your adults when we are back and/or your grown-ups at home can send pictures and videos to our email address reception@richardlee.coventry.sch.uk.

Take care.

From, Miss Cawley & Mrs McCarthy

Maths

We are following White Rose maths. At the end of last week we were learning about one more and one less. Today, you can follow this lesson with Miss Cooper. She has got a fun activity using cubes and a bucket. You will all be super at helping her to find one more and one less.

WRM - One more and one less.

Writing

Have a look at the picture in the video. What items or people can you spot that have 3 sounds? E.g. mum. Watch Miss Cawley reminding you how to use your 'Fred Fingers' to pinch the sounds as you sound out then write the word. Word writing video prompt. Write a list of words on a piece of paper.

(Parents - some children may find this activity tricky as they have not remembered many of the letter sounds. Other children may like to be challenged with words that have 4 sounds or to use the words in simple sentences. E.g. The pan is hot.)

Maths

Today's White Rose maths lesson is about squares and rectangles. You know these shapes well! Can you remember our shape song verses about square and rectangle? What are their properties (How many sides? Straight or curved sides? What length are the sides? How many corners does each shape have?).

Join in with Miss Cooper's lesson today. Make sure you call out all the answers to her!

WRM - Square and rectangle.

Communication and Language

Have a look at this video of Santa reading 'The Jolly Christmas Postman'. Do you remember the first story we read about the Jolly Postman out on his rounds, delivering all his letters, cards and leaflets? In this new story he is back out delivering cards and letters, to some characters we might know, at Christmas! The Jolly Christmas Postman.

Listen carefully. You might need to listen more than once. Can you answer these questions about the story:

 

  • Who did the postman deliver the first letter to?
  • Do you think Red Riding Hood was pleased to get a card from the Big Bad Wolf? Why or why not?
  • What surprise did Humpty Dumpty receive?
  • Who is your favourite character from the story? Why do you like them best?

 

Can you write a Christmas card to send or give to someone you love? Remember to start it with 'to' and end it with 'from' like we practiced in school.
