Reception remote learning week 7

 A warm welcome to another week of home learning activities. I hope that you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the sunshine. 

Dear Children,

Mrs Goddard found this little story and asked if i could share it with you all. We hope it cheers you up and makes you realise that there are lots of ways to show people that you care. 

Love from Mrs Cheetham, Mrs Goddard and Mrs Richards xxx

I hope you enjoyed last week activities.This week we will continue to explore our topic activities based on a healthy lifestyle. 

 Look at the Healthy Living PowerPoint with your child (see files). Can they identify what they need to do to be healthy?

Activity 1: Outdoor activity cards. Encourage your child to complete some of the exercises on the cards. 

Activity 2: Create a poster 'How to be Healthy' encourage your child to draw a picture of the things that they need to do in order to be healthy. Another option would be to help your child create a poster on the computer.

Activity 3: Ask your grown up to help you type a message to Mrs Cheetham to show me something that you have done this week that is healthy e.g. bouncing on your trampoline, eating healthy foods or sleeping all night in your on bed!
