Reception Home Learning W/E 14.12.18

This week we have been learning about-

Numeracy- Time
Days of the week

Literacy- Identifying different types of punctuation.
Continue with sounds and blending.

How to help your child at home-

Numeracy- Please could you help your child to learn the days of the week and also associate specific activities with certain days. For eg.- We don't go to school on Saturday and Sunday. We start back to school on a Monday. We go swimming on..........etc. Also beginning to understand what time we go to bed, get up, have tea etc.

Thank you for the lovely costumes that the children wore for the Christmas Concert. I was so very proud of their performances as I'm sure you were too. Just to let you know on Monday morning we will be visiting Crick Care Home. We will be singing carols and socialising with the residents. This is always an amazing experience for both generations.

Christmas production rehearsals are in full swing and we thoroughly enjoyed the carol service on Wednesday afternoon.

8.       667 + 229

Science – next week we will be designing and making a vehicle that is powered by a force.  Start thinking about what this could look like, you could even try designing one ready to bring into school.  How would it work? If you have any junk material to make them from we would be grateful if you could bring these in.

P.E – please could you make sure that P.E kit, including trainers, is in school at all times. 

Christmas Play – please remember to bring your costumes in on Monday if you haven't already done so.

Spellings – please remember to practice your spellings. Try writing them and combing them in sentences or even a story to show you understand them.

Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Maunder and Mrs Phillips
