Welcome back Reception Class! I hope you have all had a fabulous half term in the lovely sunshine. I can't wait to hear what you have all been up to. I have mainly spent time in the garden and been on walks with my family and our dogs,Morris and Mabel.
I have some great home learning for you to complete this week and the topic this week is 'Over the Rainbow'.
Remember to check in with Joe Wicks for part of your daily exercise and also to complete your daily phonics lesson at https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/find-out-more/parents/
Read The Colour Monster by Anna Llenas: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ih0iu80u04Y Discuss the feeling words and colours that represent them, by asking your child questions such as: Do you remember what the yellow monster was feeling? Try and describe to your child what they might experience when they feel ‘happiness.’ Ask your child: When do you feel happy? Model with an example, e.g. I feel happiness when you give me a hug or when the sun is shining. Repeat with the other feelings. Draw/paint a feeling monster of their own and talk/write about how they are feeling. This might be a rainbow of colours because they are/have been experiencing different feelings.
