Reception home learning Wednesday 25th March

Dear children

We hope that you are all enjoying being with your grown ups and hopefully are able to enjoy some of this sunshine.  How good are your grown ups at teaching you?  I hope that you are helping them by explaining what we do?  Here’s today’s work for you:

Have a group of items (20 or so) – take some out and put in a pile then ask your child to estimate how many there are.  After they estimate get them to count them accurately and see whether their estimate was sensible or not.  Repeat several times.

If you were able to take/pick up your learning pack there is a number track in there.  If not please make one by drawing a row of 20 squares and numbering them 1-20.  Ask your child to put their finger on number one – they say a number and they count up – they say another number and they count on.  eg if their finger is on 3 and then you say 4 they don’t say 1,2,3,4 they say 4,5,6,7.  Go up and down the number track like this.

Reading – parents please register for Oxford Owls for free books and book to read is in the phonics section above.

Thank you

    have they already learned how to write a full sentence unaided?

      Yes most of the children should be able to sound out and write at least a simple sentence – if you e-mail and let us know which child you are asking about then we will be able to tell you what we would expect your child to do. Mrs Tucker
