Welcome to RT!

We have 32 children in our class. Our teacher is Mr Taylor and our teaching assistant is Mrs Turner. Mrs Pandzioch is also in our class.

 

We will be learning lots this year and we will be learning in different ways. We will learn through play, indoors and outdoors and we will also do interesting things led by our teachers. 

 

We hope you enjoy watching our journey in Reception and all of the fun that we have. 

Summer 2 - Week 7 and 8

Moving to Year 1

 

 

This week and next week  we will be looking at some transition activities in preparation for Year 1. Anything intended for Year 1 will be shared with Mrs Stalker and Mrs Oldhams.

 

Writing

  • Write about your favourite topic from your time in Reception (Supertato, Christmas, Pirates, Dinosaurs, Under the Sea etc) – let me know what you liked and why.
  • Read the cautious caterpillar – discuss feelings about moving into Year 1 and how new adventures are exciting!
  • Write some questions for your Year 1 teachers. (I will compile these and get answers from the Year 1 teachers and send these back to you. Try to use Who, What, Where, When, How, Why starters.
  • Complete the spreading my wings sheet.

Maths

This week we will be looking at 2d and 3d shapes. The children should be more confident with 2d shapes so maybe spend 1 day on these and then move on to 3d whilst doing a little 2d activity each day.

Summer 2 Week 3

Under the Sea – Starry Eyed Stan

 

This week lots of our work will be based around a book called Starry Eyed Stan. I have uploaded a version of the book below so you can share this before attempting some of the activities. It is a very fun book which touches on themes of friendship and being kind to others. Use this as a chance to find out about star fish too. Which oceans do they live in? What do they eat? How do they move?

 

Maths

This week we will be consolidate counting in 10s and 2s and then move on to counting in 5s. Remember to not move on to these until you are sure that your child is secure in number recognition to 20 and using these numbers for basic addition and subtraction. Start with lots of practical counting in 5s, counting groups of 5 and then maybe counting high fives before moving on to the activities below.

Summer 2 Week 2

Under the Sea – Coral Reef

 

General

Research what lives in the coral reef. Find out as much about it as possible, what plants, animals etc live there. Watch videos, news stories and read articles about it all. We will also be looking at pollution in the oceans and how we can each play our part to help make this better. Part of this weeks work is to teach the children about research and how we do that when trying to find out about something that we might not know a lot about. Please bear in mind that when looking at pollution, each child’s understanding of this will be different as will their ability to cope with the sad facts around it in relation to harm to animals. Please consider this carefully especially when researching and make sure that you monitor what they are looking at.

 

Writing

  • After watching some videos write a summary of what you think a coral reef is.
  • Make a list of different things that live in a coral reef.
  • Make a list of rules for keeping the oceans healthy.
  • Write a list of questions you might have about what lives in the sea – keep this list and try and do the research to answer them all by the end of this half term.

Maths

This week we will be focussing on counting in 10’s. Same as last week, please don’t go onto this if some of the basics to 10 are not secure yet as that is the most important element. If this is the case then please see prior weeks or get in touch. When counting in 10’s you can obviously use your hands together or your feet together. Similar to last week, it is important that the children know that when we count in 10’s it is because we have lots of groups of 10. E.g. before counting 10p coins the children need to know that is because it has 10 1p’s in it. Try collecting toys in groups of 10 and counting the groups before counting coins.

  • Clap hands together using both hands counting in 10s as you go.
  • Count jumps in 10, talking about how there are 10 toes on the floor each time you land.
  • Play a game throwing a ball (or anything else) into a container. Each one that goes in gets you 10 points!

Summer 2 Week 1

Under the Sea

 

Maths

As we move into Summer 2 it is very important that the children are confident with their number recognition to 20, counting to 20 and addition and subtraction. Please do not move on to the work below if you don’t feel they are secure on the above. Instead, do lots of practise with those numbers to 20, write out addition and subtraction problems and solve them practically. If you need any help with this then please get in touch!

Our focus this week will be on counting in 2s. As always it is important to do lots of practical work first before trying any of the worksheets. To count in 2s practically you may want to count pairs of socks or shoes, get the children to label each set of 2 as they count, making it clear that we count in 2s because we know that the groups are all the same. There are some songs below to help as well. It might be worth stopping these at 10 whilst confidence builds, then moving on to 20 and beyond when you feel they are ready.

Counting By Twos Song

Dancing in 2's

Literacy

Our focus for our writing this week will be on finding out about sharks. If you begin by labelling the parts of a shark and discussing what each part does, how they breathe, their teeth etc then you will be able to use the labels to write sentences about what a shark looks like.

  • Label a shark
  • Find out 3 interesting facts about a shark and write these in sentences
  • Complete a written factfile about sharks telling me what they look like, how they breathe and some other interesting facts.

People Who Help Us

Writing

This week we will be finishing of our work on People Who Help Us and combining some of the work we have done previously.

  • Create a story map in the style of the Jolly Postman – You are on a walk around your local area and you see different people who help us. Where do you see them? What do you give them or what do they give you?
  • Write your story a little bit at a time with a sentence for each picture on your story map e.g. One sunny day I went for a walk around Maghull. First I saw a doctor. She was on her way to the doctor’s surgery. Next I saw a postman with a very big bag of letters. After that I saw a mechanic who was fixing a broken car. She was doing a very good job. Etc
  • Write about which job you think you would be good at if you were going to help people. What makes you think you would be good at that job (this is similar to the castle job application so look back at that and use similar questions and skills).
  • Complete the list of who helps us to do different things worksheet.

Maths

This week we will focus on securing the children’s use of numbers to 20. To do this there should be lots of counting objects, actions and things that cannot be moved such as pictures.

  • Create a game in the garden which involved throwing something (a ball, teddy, rolled up socks, anything!) into a selection of containers (buckets, watering cans, hoops etc). Each container is labelled with a different points value and the children add up the points for all the players as they go. Play first to 20 wins. Once the children are confident going forwards with this, try starting with 20 points and the first person to get to zero wins.
  • Complete missing number challenges – there are some sheets attached below but you can also do this by counting out loud and missing numbers, replacing the numbers with a clap. Which number is missing?
  • Practice counting from different starting numbers, forwards and backwards. Not all counting starts from 1 and when children feel confident to spot a group of 5 and start from that number (when using fingers for instance), this makes it much quicker for them.
  • Complete a number hunt – hide numbers 0 – 20 around the house (just written on paper) – Every time they find a number they come and put it on the number line 0- this could be a bit of tape on the floor, a washing line or just laid out. Discuss which numbers would go where on the number line.

Creative

  • Draw around your body and then draw on the uniform or work clothes or someone who helps us that you admire.
  • Create a people who help us tree – draw around your hand, paint it brown like a trunk and add some branches coming off your fingers. Finger paint some leaves on the trees and on each write down someone who helps us. This could just be their job title (e.g. paramedic) but it could also include people you know in your family who do those jobs.

Computing

  • Complete a mash cam for a builder – what would you be good at building? Could you build something linked to our current topic? A police station, a hospital etc

RE

  • Create a prayer ‘fortune teller’ On the inside of the flaps draw or write someone or something you would like to pray for.

Our book focus this week is Cops and Robbers by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. 

 

  • Choose one of the robbers from the story and write a wanted poster for them. Describe what they look like including plenty of adjectives! If you enjoy doing one you could do wanted posters for all of them!
  • Write a description of Office Pugh. What makes him brave? How do you know this?

Maths

The focus in our maths this week is on halving and sharing. The easiest way to teach halving is to use the ‘one for you, one for me’ method of sharing. This could be practised with teddies in a tea party setting or with any other interest your child has. Once they are confident practically halving you could introduce sharing into more groups. Remember that the numbers should be able to be shared out equally (no remainders just yet!) Once they are confident practically halving you can try division by grouping. See the video tutorial for this by following the youtube link below. https://youtu.be/linbjLi2K5s

It’s important that your child also understands division as grouping. Again, you can use any objects from around your home to practise division as grouping.

Ask your child to find out how many there are in a group of objects. Explain to them that you want to find out how many groups of two there are in the total group. Help your child to take two items at a time and count how many groups of two there are in the total number.

For example, if you had 8 objects and wanted to divide by grouping this could be seen as ‘How many groups of 2 are there in 8?’. Ask and support your child to explain that they have divided the 8 objects by grouping them in twos and finding out how many groups of 2 there are in the total group of 8 objects.

I have attached some worksheets but the best way to do this will always be practically!

 

If very confident with halving and doubling from last week then try the halving and doubling connection sheet. There is also a doubling and halving board game to help practice.

Writing

  • Find out about and write about what firefighters do.
  • Write about what you want to be when you are older and try to include reasons why.
  • Write speech and thought bubbles for what fire fighters might be thinking whilst putting out a fire.

Maths

This week our focus will be on doubling. The easiest way to explain this to the children is to get them to know that it is ‘the same number again’. So if you ask what double 5 is it is the same as saying 5 + 5. Do lots of this practically to begin with concentrating on doubles up to 5 to begin with.

Double song

RE

Make a list of things that protect us (e.g. bike helmet, seat belts etc) and people who protect us (God, parents etc). Read or watch the story of Moses in the basket and discuss who protected him. You could add this to your list.

People Who Help Us - Vets

 

Maths 

This week we will focus on subtraction from 20. In a similar way to the addition this should be done practically at first and then using things like a number line or other methods such as drawing the first number in the number sentence and then crossing out the second number. We will only work on adding 1 digit numbers e.g. 11 + 8. Subtraction to 10 can always be completed on your fingers! Given the link to our story this week ‘The Zoo Vet’, it is also a great time to work on some Days of the Week ordering. You could complete a diary for each day of the week to help with this too. 

Writing 

Our focus for People Who Help Us is Vets this week. You could complete lots of different research about types of vets.  

  • Write questions for a vet. What would you want to find out?  

  • Read the Zoo vet and then complete the What Happened Next? Sheet 

  • Make your own version of the Zoo vet - which animals will come in and why? It doesn’t have to be in a zoo, it could be anywhere! You might like to do an  animal a day to break the writing up a little and by the end of the week you will have a lovely story.  

  • Write some patient record cards during your play  

Phonics 

If your child is confident reading and writing with the majority of the Phase 3 sounds then move on to Phase 4 this week. If not, then please continue to consolidate Phase 3 and ensure that they are gaining confidence with this. In Phase 4 the children are not introduced to new sounds but will instead work more with consonant blends such as ‘sp’, ‘st’, ‘nt’ etc. There are some activities below to get started with. 

Creative  

  • Using your toys (cuddly and others) create a veterinary surgery. Which animals are coming in and why? You can make bandages out of paper and other craft materials!  

  • Make cards for some of the animals in the vets so you can hope they get better soon. 

  • Make a collage of your favourite animals

RE

 

This half term in RE we will be learning about stories that Jesus heard. This will put the focus on the Old Testament. Each week I will upload a story and an activity to go with it (this may be over a couple of weeks for the same story).

This week our focus is on Daniel in the Lions Den.

I have attached two animated versions of the story (1 is over 20 minutes and the other is 4 minutes). There are also some written versions too. 

 

The activity this week is to think about how Daniel would have felt in the Lion’s Den. Would he have been scared? Or did he trust in God and this took his fear away? Did he trust in God but was still a little afraid? Write down your reflections on this (adults can scribe for children) and then think about a time that you have been afraid. What would you have said to God? Write down or share your prayer with your family.

People Who Help us

 

Welcome back everyone! I hope that you all had a great break and that you managed to enjoy your Easter time together. I will now continue to put work on our class page for you to complete at home if you wish.

Our topic would now be People Who Help Us. Over the coming weeks we will be looking at the people in our communities who help us in different ways, a very appropriate topic at the moment, I’m sure you’ll agree.

I will be commenting on anything that goes on Class Dojo. It was amazing to see so many fantastic things going on at home before Easter and I can’t wait to start seeing them all again.

 

Writing

  • Write a list of people you can think who help you (clues – nurses, doctors, firefighters, paramedics, postal workers, dentists, cooks in school, vets etc).
  • Choose one of these groups of people and write a letter to them to thank them for their work at this time. On your daily exercise you could take a walk and post the letter to them. I’m sure this would give them a big boost at the moment!
  • You could write a letter to a friend or family member as well and post this to them. This is a great way to keep in touch at the moment.
  • Create a story map for the Jolly Postman (original story below) – who would he deliver letters to in your story? You could try writing your story too.

Creative

  • Design a stamp – stamps come in all different shapes and sizes, have a look! You could dress up and try and recreate the classic queen stamps. Make a crown out of carboard and decorate it!
  • Create a sheet of stamps on 2simple (this has been set as a 2do)
  • Using household objects or lego, construction materials, junk materials etc invent a new way to deliver post! (It doesn’t actually have to work) Decide where your post will start and then set a goal. It might start on one side of the kitchen and you need to deliver post to the living room for instance.

Potential activities for Spring 2 Week 5 (week beginning 23rd March)

 

These are available if you wish to complete them and want something else to do at home. There are also links to yoga and mindfulness activities on our class page as well different things to do at home just for fun!

 

We would have been starting our topic on castles this week so I have uploaded some of the things we would have looked at including Powerpoints.

 

 

Writing

  1. Draw a story map – this involves drawing a picture for every part of the sentence you will write (you don’t need to write the story if you don’t want but can orally retell it). E.g. Once upon a time (draw a sun then an arrow), there was a brave princess (draw a princess and write key word ‘brave’ underneath), who went for a walk in the deep dark woods (draw the woods). The story map could follow a standard children’s story pattern such as meeting three different characters with the final one delivering the end product (such as finding a missing jewel or the dragons lair).
  2. Label a picture of a castle
  3. Write about the different parts of a castle – what was the purpose of them?

Art/Creative

  1. Design a family crest (template attached although this could be drawn on paper or made as a collage on the floor). You can split the crest how you like. Try and think of 4 or more things that represent your family and draw them on the crest.
  2. Draw a castle – how does it look? Where would you build it?
  3. Do a self-portrait in the style of our old kings and queens. Try drawing your family too!

Phonics

There are lots of general phonics games uploaded on to our class page including the songs that we use. No specific sounds will be given whilst we are closed. Tricky word songs are also there.

Maths

Lots of general counting games including board games. I have also uploaded some general number bonds to 10 resources. This can be practised in lots of ways by having 10 objects and splitting them into different groups. How many each group? The answer will always be 10. If confident expand to 20. If finding tricky, try number bonds to 5.

  1. Design a Jurassic world – where will the dinosaurs live? How will you separate the herbivores and carnivores? How will passengers get around?
  2. Paint a flower – We have been looking at Van Gogh’s sunflowers and painting lots of different flowers. Mix colours to make different tints and shades and paint different flowers around your house.

 

RE

  1. The last supper – read the story of the last supper and act out what happened

 

Writing

  1. What do I know about dinosaurs? – Write a report on all of the things that you have found out about dinosaurs since we started the topic
  2. Why do you love your Mum? – Write about why you love you Mum. Just in time for Mother’s Day!

 

 

 

Maths

Our focus this week is on one more and one less

  1. Complete different games such as giving your child a starting number and then they find one more or one less for numbers to 20. This reinforces touch counting as well the language of more and less. They may be confident knowing it without counting but it is good for them to check practically.
  2. Complete some of the dinosaur 1 more and 1 less sheets on the website.
  3. Complete 1 more 1 less dice game

 

Phonics

Our sounds this week are er, air and ure. There are lots of games online for this and a worksheet for each of them is on the website.

 

If you complete any of the above activities, then please keep them and send them in to school once you are back in. It is not a race to finish these activities. Spread them out over the week and incorporate other activities such as baking, cooking and play based learning.

 

Any questions please ask.

 

Thanks
