Good morning Reception Class. Thank you for your updates yesterday, it was lovely to see how well you have all jumped back in to working from home.
Your tasks for today are:
Literacy - Using the same story from yesterday.
Respond to the story
o What do you notice about each animal’s wish? They all wanted something to eat. What food would you ask for? What sort of food can come by post? What foods would not be a good idea to send in a parcel?!
o Today we will remember the events in the story.
o Look at the letters to the postman.
o With each letter, read it together and help your child to record what the animal asked for below on What did they ask for? They can record their answer as a word or a sentence or even a picture next to the animal image.
o Lay cards with numbers on in a line 1 to 20.
o Ask your child to turn around or else blindfold them!
o Remove one number but rearrange the rest so no gap is to be seen.
o Ask the child to count along the line and to tell you when they think a number is missing. Can they identify the place it should go?
o Ask them to place a finger between the two numbers where they think the missing number belongs.
o Show the number you stole! Are they correct?
o Repeat, taking a different number.
o Lay the cards so the line counts backwards from 20 to 1. This makes it harder!
Complete a piece of topic work from the weekly overview.
I look forward to seeing how you have gone on today!
Take care from Mrs Ewens.
