Good morning Reception Class. I hope you have all had a great weekend and enjoyed spending time with your family.
This week our topic is going to be 'Big, Bad Bugs!' I have also set challenges on Reading Eggs for you.
I have also attached the phonics sounds. Please practice Set 1 and 2 daily.
Literacy and topic work
Talk to your child about what a bug is i.e. a small insect. Do they know any names of any bugs? Go on a bug hunt in your garden or look for bugs on a walk. Listen to the song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoIeeIEPGJI and watch the link below to find out some names of bugs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXiaC1TjTXU (Note: replace ‘ladybug’ – Americanism, with ‘ladybird.’) Join in saying the names on a second viewing. Clapping the syllables might help, e.g. three claps when saying butterfly – butt-er-fly. Write a list of the bugs that you now know and draw a picture to go with each. Encourage use of phonics and independent writing. Take the list with you on a walk and spot the bugs you can see. Extend to writing sentences e.g. I can see a bee. I can see a … I can see a …etc.
