Reception Home Learning Monday 30th March

Good morning children! We hope you have had a lovely weekend after all your hard work last week. Welcome back to another week of exciting tasks from the Reception Team – we can’t wait to hear how you get on!

Maths:

Hidden items. Ask your grown up to get 20 things that you can count – it could be buttons or cereal like Shreddies or Cheerios, or even chocolate buttons (you could eat them afterwards!) Get your grown up to count out a number like 5, show you and then cover them up with a tea towel. The grown up can then add 1 or 2 more pieces under the towel. Can you keep count? You can use your fingers. Challenge: do the same activity but with subtraction.

Literacy:

What can you see in the picture? Write a sentence about it – remember: think it first, then say it, then write it. Count how many words and repeat it. We would love to see your sentences!

Speech and Language:

Imagine that you can talk to the girl in the picture – what would you ask her? How many questions can you think of? Remember our question words –  who, what, why, where, when – can you show your grown up the actions for the words? How is another good question word.

Phonics:

Share one of your own books with your grown up or choose another from the Oxford Owl. Grown ups – can you ask the children some questions about what they are reading such as “What do you think might happen next?” “How is … feeling? how do you know?” This will help with their comprehension skills. Thank you!
