A warm welcome back to the Reception remote learning page...
I hope that you have all had a lovely Easter break. I can imagine that you have been eating lots of chocolate eggs and also been enjoying playing outside in your garden.
This week you will be sharing and enjoying the story 'Where The Wild Things Are' by Maurice Sendak
Monday: Share the story if you have a copy at home or watch the audio book using the link below.
Make and use the stick puppets to act out and retell the story together.
Tuesday: Think about the main character, Max, in the story. Why was he sent to bed without any supper? What would he have thought to himself? Complete the thought bubbles sheet.
Wednesday: Today you will use amazing adjectives to describe a wild thing from the story. Choose a wild thing. Look at its teeth, claws, body etc. What words can you use to describe it for example: pointy claws, feathery body, bulging eyes etc. Write a description of it.
Thursday: Draw a wild thing of your own on the wanted poster sheet and write a description of it using amazing adjectives.
Friday: Using the 'wild thing' you drew and described yesterday, write a fact file for it. You can choose a fact file template. What does your wild thing eat, where does it live and how does it survive?
This week we will be learning about shape. The children will need to be able to recognise and name a range of 2D and 3D shapes.
Here are a few shape songs that the children might like to listen to;
Mon- Begin by sharing the shape power point (in the files below) and revising the names of 2D shapes. The children should then look at the Shape patterns and Shape monsters games on topmarks.
Shape Patterns- Topmarks
Shape Monster game- Topmarks
*As an extension activity your child may like to then complete the repeating patterns activity (files below).
Tues- Children to complete 2D shape sorting activity. The children in the Reception class should be familiar with the basic shapes; circle, triangle, square, rectangle, semi- circle and oval. This activity does include some more advanced shapes e.g. Hexagon, Pentagon, these shapes are therefore an extension if you wish to use them.
Weds- Revise the names of 2D shapes and encourage your child to describe each shape by explaining how many sides and corners each shape has e.g. A Triangle. It has 3 sides and 3 corners. Ask your child to make a Shape Wanted poster for a chosen shape.
We will now move on to learning about 3-Dimensional shapes. It is important that children are able to relate everyday objects to their knowledge of 3D shapes. The children should be able to name common 3D shapes such as; cuboids (including Cube), pyramid and sphere and begin to describe their properties e.g a sphere can roll, a cylinder has a curved side.
Thurs- Look at 3D Shape photo power point. Complete shape hunt activity looking at everyday objects around your home.
Fri- Children to complete 3D shape sorting activity.
We, as Key Stage 1 ,thought this would be a great topic as you could observe plants in your home, gardens and immediate surrounding area.
This week we are going to focus on the parts of a plant. I attach a file with a powerpoint presentation and lots of activities to dip into as and when it suits.
If you have any seeds it would be great to plant some now. You could even do your own experiments, putting some in a cupboard to avoid light, some in the fridge to avoid warmth and some without water and discuss your findings!
In support of schools the BBC are starting their home learning through BBC Bitesize from 20.4.20. I attach the link below
If you then choose KS1 science and scroll through they have a great section on plants. Have fun and stay safe!.
