Good morning Reception,
I hope you enjoyed St Agnes day and were able to do something nice.
Well done to Teddy C! You have really improved with your sentence writing and your letter formation. You did a great job recording the light sources in your house!
Well done also to Violet. Those sentences were fantastic! You have been practising a lot I can see! Your writing has improved from the last time I saw it.
Thank you for sending your work in.
Here is your learning for today:
Use your sounds to complete the sentence. e.g The dog can brk. (bark) The cat can run. Remember it is ok to only write the sounds you hear. It doesn't have to be spelled correctly. As always, don't forget a capital letter for the start of the sentence, finger spaces and a full stop at the end. Read over your sentence once you have written it, pointing at each word as you read.
Phonics: The phoneme for today is ng
Watch this Youtube video with Josh for today's phoneme. This is a tricky sound, listen carefully to how to say it.
Now watch and join in with the reading session.
Writing: Keep practising your handwriting. Follow the direction of the arrows. Use your magic writing finger at first, don't stop writing until you finish the letter. Next, try writing it on paper. We learn to write n and g together because it is a digraph - 2 letters that make one sound.
Literacy: Today I am going to read you another story with owls in it. It is called 'A Bit Lost' by Chris Haughton. Listen carefully because I want you to think about things that are the same and different with 'Owl Babies'. See the video below.
Now it's your turn. Draw a picture of the pond, log and grass like you saw in the video.
Next draw 5 frogs and cut them out. Put different numbers of frogs in the pond, on the log and on the grass. How many frogs are there? How many in the pond? on the log? on the grass? How many are there altogether? You could also draw 3 train carriages and use 5 lego people as passengers. Or you could draw a park with a slide, swings and a sandpit. Or a jungle with a tree, grass and vines and draw 5 jungle animals to use.
Think about all the animals that are nocturnal. Can you remember the names of any of the ones that you read about? Which one is your favourite? Why do you like it? We are going to make up a story using a different animal next week.
Choose from: a hedgehog, a fox, a mouse, a badger, a bat
Draw a picture of your favourite nocturnal animal.
