Home Learning for Monday 18th January

 

Dear Pandas

 

Play dough disco and Phonics

Remember you can join in with a different play dough disco song each day.

Please sing the alphabet song pointing at your child’s handwriting sheet. Then point and ask the children what two or three letter names a day are. Today’s Letters and Sounds lesson is Lesson 47 – Reception – YouTube.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgP65Zcsd9o

Please see the link to phonics play. https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/ The games are great for developing understanding in phonics.

 

Morning books

Please use the morning books to help you child practise writing their name and the sounds we have learnt in phonics. Can your child sound out one or two simple words using the sounds they have learnt or write a simple sentence? ( e.g. ‘We can be rich.’).

 

Mathematics

Explain that we are going to have a new number of the week this week. What it might be?

Show them the number ten and demonstrate writing on the board. (Children have a go at writing the number 10).

Watch number blocks ‘The Ten song’   https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/numberblocks-the-ten-song

And ‘Ten again’. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Gl9-HG2SpQ

What did the children notice? What can they tell you about the number 10?

Can they find 10 of anything in their house or garden?

Model using the stem sentence ‘I can see 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10  cats etc.’

If you have a 10s frame leave it out. Can the child fill with 10 objects? Are there any spaces in the frame? Why not?

Children could then order their number cards and look at where 10 is in a number line.

What do they notice? Ten is one more than nine. One less than ten is nine etc.

Can they write all the numbers to 10?

Can they show the numbers to 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 using their fingers? (In a random order)

Children draw around their hands. How many fingers do they have?

Sing some counting to 10 songs like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diMJIlv-4N0 or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ak7kedzR8bg

 

Topic – Polar Habitats

Do I know the features of a polar habitat and can I locate the North Pole and South Pole on a globe?

Our topic of the week this week is ‘Polar Habitats’. You could begin by asking the children what they already know about polar habitats. What is a habitat? What is a polar habitat? Today we are going to watch the video below to find out all about habitats and where to locate it on a globe. If you have a globe at home it would be great if you could find the polar habitats. If not, don't worry, the teacher will cover this in the video. Alternately, you could use google earth to locate some polar habitats on there.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-identify-features-of-a-polar-habitat-and-locate-them-on-a-globe-6gw30r

After you have watched the video you could try and free your polar animals from the ice? What could you use to free the animals? What could melt the ice?

 

English

In school our focus this term is traditional tales. We will be using the Oak National Academy to support our learning beginning with the 3 Billy Goats Gruff. I have attached the link for the sixth lesson. In this lesson, we will recycle the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff to create a new story with changed characters. https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-recycle-the-story-of-the-three-billy-goats-gruff-6xjk6t

 

Physical activity

Have you had chance to try out one of the ideas from the physical activity grid yet? They are a great way of giving your child a brain break, and then helping them get refocused.

 

It has been great to see some of the learning you have already done at home on Tapestry. Please keep sharing your home learning with us.

 

Many thanks

Mrs Moxham

 

Home Learning for Friday 15th January 2021

 

Dear Pandas

Reading books

If your child can fluently read their school reading books and you would like us to change them then you can start dropping your child’s reading books off at school during your daily exercise on a Friday between 9.30am-2.30pm. If you open the door into the Reception area you will see a red box, labelled Pandas on the table. Please only leave your child’s reading books inside their reading record in the box.

We will change them on Monday (after the weekend to allow for a period of isolation), and you can pick them up each Tuesday between 10am-2pm from the red box in Reception. We are starting this today but will continue to do it each week during lockdown.

Winter and Summer sorting activity for Tuesday 12th January

Home Learning for Monday 11th January

Dear Pandas

Please continue reading with your child at home and encourage them to use those vital sounding and blending skills. I have now set up a class login for Oxford Owl, this will enable parents to access e-books for children to read at home that are similar to the ‘We can read’ books (and levels) that they normally bring home from school.

Please follow the link and login on ‘Oxford Owls for School’ as a student. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/

Username: pandaclass123

Password: Pandas1234

When you have logged in, you can follow the icon for 'Oxford Owl E-book Library'. When you have clicked on the icon, on the right there will be a bar that says 'Levels'. Scroll down to Level 1+ Pink or Level 2 Red and let your child choose a book they would like to read.

Another website where free books are available is ‘Epic’.

Student Log In (getepic.com)

wvu8938

You can listen to Audio Books, read books etc.

Phonics

Please continue to sing the alphabet song daily, pointing at your child’s handwriting sheet as you sing. Then point at two or three letters each day and ask the children what their letter names are. Today’s Letters and Sounds lesson is Lesson 44 (part 1) - Reception - YouTube. Learning to read a new digraph ‘ng’. After the session, please help your child to practise writing the ‘ng’ sound and to read 2 or 3 words ending in ng, for example: sing, ring, ping-pong, king, along, hang, song.

Morning books

Please use the morning books to help you child practise writing their name, practise the sounds we have learnt in phonics, sound out one or two simple words using the sounds they have learnt like sing, ring, wing, king, long etc as well as to draw a picture.

Mathematics

Explain that we are going to have a new number of the week this week. What it might be?

Show them the number nine and demonstrate writing on the board saying the rhyme – Make a loop and then a line, that’s the way we make a nine! (Children have a go at writing the number 9 ).

Watch number blocks ‘nine’. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MR1-N61Lpg

What did the children notice?

Children make 4 and 9 using blocks. What do they notice? They are both squares with four sides and corners. Can they find 9 of anything in their house?

Model using the stem sentences ‘I can see 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 cats etc.’ Eight and one more is nine. One less than nine is eight etc.

Children will then order the number cards from 1-10 and look at where 9 is in a number line. What can they find nine of in their house or garden?

Topic – Winter

Do I know the difference between hot and cold? Please watch

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-understand-the-difference-between-hot-and-cold-6cukcr

Then complete two science experiments if you have ice prepared. If not, complete these experiments tomorrow.

Have a cup of cold water and a cup of hot water. Ask the children to predict what they think will happen if you place an ice cube in the cold cup and what they think will happen if you place an ice cube in the hot cup. Which ice cube will melt quicker? Why do you think that? Complete and see what the children notice. (Do they notice any changes? Can they explain why the changes are occurring and talk about the changes?)

Have two blocks of ice and ask the children if they can think of two different ways to get the ice to melt. What could they do to make the ice melt? Which of their two ideas way will be the quickest way of melting the ice? Complete and see what the children notice. (Do they notice any changes? Can they explain why the change is occurring and talk about the changes?)

As you are aware EYFS is slightly different from the rest of school and involves a mixture of adult led time and play based child-initiated activities, so we set work which is more informal and more practical. This is the nature of the Early Years curriculum. I understand how challenging it can be to engage a young child in an academic ‘sat down’ task at home, so pause the videos and come back to them if your child needs a break. Try to follow your child’s interest and ensure they have time to learn through play during each day.

I am going to start adding an English task each day for anyone who would like an additional activity. If you choose to try the English activities, please let me know how you get on.

English

In school our focus this term is traditional tales. We will be using the Oak National Academy to support our learning beginning with the 3 Billy Goats Gruff.

It has been great to see some of the learning you have already done at home on Tapestry. Please keep sharing your home learning with us and don’t worry if you can’t complete everything. Prioritise daily reading, phonics, maths and learning through play. I have tried to give you a variety of ideas and to share what we are doing in school.
