Welcome to Reception's Home Learning Page 

Friday 17th September 2021

In class today we would have been doing some number writing practise. Watch Mrs Crosbie show you how and make sure you are holding your pencil properly.

You can sing some of our number songs too.

We usually have a story at milk and fruit time so here is Mrs Rowan reading The Runaway Train for you.

We always try to keep active in Reception class  and are learning about keeping fit. You can listen to this Let's Move programme to keep yourself moving. It's all about going for a magic carpet ride! 

Another way to keep fit if you have time would be to go for a walk with an adult and use your Beat the Street fob.

Reading Books

We are so proud of the fabulous start every child has made in their reading journey and so it is vital that they keep practising daily. They can continue with their reading using the Active Learn website www.activelearnprimary.co.uk Here  I can oversee their reading and add new book when necessary.

This is a fantastic resource, please use it.

Phonics/Literacy - Practice sounds and tricky words daily with these videos or using you the cards in your little phonics bags. New sounds and tricky words will be added to your packs. Phonics activities are included in your pack also.

Literacy

The Pirates are off on another voyage but first they have to pack. Did you know pirates are very forgetful? Help them to remember what they'll need  by writing a list for them.

Today we'll practice the tricky word was.

 It sounds like it should have the "o" sound in the middle, but we know it's an "a" - that's why its tricky. Mrs Rowan demonstrates in the clip below.

Religious Education

 LO -Discover what activities children and families like to do together. 

Some activities are better done together. Some things are impossible to do alone; playing tennis? using a seesaw? These pictures show people doing things together - can you see how they are having fun and working together?

Can you remember a time when you enjoyed doing an activity with a friend? Tell some one about it. What do you like to do with your friends at home or at school?

Use the worksheet in your pack to draw a picture showing you doing an activity together with friends. If you can write a sentence too, that would be amazing.

Today our tricky word really is tricky. It's you. Easy to hear the "y" at the beginning, but the spelling of the rest of the word can be hard to remember. Mrs Rowan will show you how.

Topic - Pirates

Pirates used maps to remind them where they'd buried the treasure or "loot" at they used to call it. We are going to make our own pirate map. You will need a piece of white paper (in your pack) and a teabag......yes a teabag!

First dip your tea bag in warm water (not hot) and carefully rub it all over your white piece of paper. You should notice the paper change colour to a light brown. Make sure you cover it completely there should be no white paper bits left.

Now you need to leave your paper somewhere until it is dry.

When it's dry, because it has turned a brown colour it should look like a very old piece of paper, as if it could have belonged to a real pirate hundreds of years ago. You are now ready to draw your map. Have a look at these pirate treasure maps below, they could give you an idea of what to include on your map.

The last tricky word to practice this week and it really is tricky with a capital T.

The word is "all" and it is very hard to hear what that first sound is, isn't it?

Is it an o? Is it an u? No it's an a!!! I know, I couldn't believe it either, it's a good job Mrs Rowan knows ALL the tricky words.

Topic -Pirates

We don't want our pirate ship sinking in a storm, this investigation will help to find out how we can keep it dry.

WATERPROOF A PIRATE SHIP

 

This is a fun, super simple pirate themed waterproof experiment.

You’ll need:

  • Paper with a picture on it.
  • Materials such as kitchen roll, plastic, bubble wrap, greaseproof paper, tissue paper cut into squares.
  • Water
  • Glue
  • Squeezy water bottle.

INSTRUCTIONS

1 Draw your pirate ship. Feel the different types of material, which do you think will be the most waterproof and why?

2 Place the squares of material over the picture using glue.

3 Spray water over the picture and observe any changes to the paper

4 What do you notice, which material keeps the ship driest? 

WHY DOES IT WORK?

Waterproof objects cannot be penetrated by water.

Can you think of any natural waterproof materials? What about your coat, is that waterproof?

What is it made from? An umbrella?
