Reception Spring 1 Week 1
Date: 15th Jan 2021 @ 12:25pm
Firstly, thank you to the children learning at home for trying so hard with lockdown learning. Secondly, thanks to the parents for keeping up with the Zoom schedule and supporting your child whilst juggling lots yourself! (Please can you show your child how to unmute themselves- I can mute but can't unmute them) Many thanks for uploading photos onto Seesaw, this is really helping us to maintain a relationship with the children. Thirdly, thanks to the children in school for coping with changes to their timetable and for working quietly when I am on Zoom.
Making and eating toast was an enjoyable activity this week. Close observations were made of the changes to the bread and children expressed likes/ dislikes about the topppings.
X and y were the focus in phonics and next week we are introducing the concept of two letters making one side- ll, yy,ss, zz.
In maths, we looked for 2D shapes in the environment and separated 5 objects into 2 groups ( 5 and 0, 4 and 1, 3 and 2...). It is important children have lots of opportunities to do this practically so that they can develop instant recall of the number 5 fact family. We will continue with this next week and talk about weight.
Handwriting focus next week- g, s, e
Another Wake & Shake, Cosmic Kids Yoga and Squiggle It has been uploaded on here to the news item ( the links work!)
Have a well earned rest this weekend and see you on Monday ( in the classroom or virtually)!
REMINDER- any Dandelion books at home to be returned ASAP.
INFO- new worksheet packs and Dandelion books will be available to collect from Wednesday morning.
