Good morning Reception Class. I hope that you are all well and still enjoying spending time at home with your families. Once again, it was great to receive emails yesterday telling me how you have all been getting on. We still don't have access to Mathseeds at the moment but I will let you know as soon as I have any further information.
Olivia completed some great learning yesterday on her bug hunt!
It was no surprise to me that Seth was enjoying the bug topic. His mummy found a daddy long legs and Seth was quick to correct her that it is actually called a Pholic! Excellent knowledge as always Seth!
Here are your home learning tasks for today -
Literacy and topic
Watch and enjoy the CBeebies episode on caterpillars:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a75Jqde8k1I Talk to your child about what they saw.
Can they tell you any information now about butterflies?
Watch the clip explaining the lifecycle of a butterfly:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dM71jKNuk-M Talk about what happens to transform
a caterpillar into a butterfly. Can your child use the words: egg, lava, caterpillar, pupa,
chrysalis, butterfly to talk about what happens at each stage? Make a life cycle of a
butterfly drawing/collage or use a paper plate following
https://buggyandbuddy.com/butterfly-life-cycle-craft/ instructions online. Once completed,
can your child write the words that they have learnt next to the parts of the life cycle?
This is a real challenge today! If you don't have access to a printer you could colour in circles and cut them out yourself. I'm looking forward to seeing how you get on!
Take care Reception Class, Mrs Ewens. firstname.lastname@example.org
