Good morning Reception,
Well done, you have got to the end of your first week of home learning. You are doing very well.
Here is your learning for today:
Phonics: The phoneme for today is x
Watch this Youtube video for today's phoneme.
Now for the reading.
Practise reading these words.
Writing: Practise your handwriting. Follow the direction of the arrows. Use your magic writing finger at first, don't stop writing until you finish the pattern or letter. Next, try writing it on paper. This is quite a tricky letter to write. Just try your best.
Once you have finished watching the video, look at the pictures on the sheet below and talk about which activities happen during the day and which happen during the night. Why are there two toothbrushes?
A good thing to do to help strengthen your fingers and hands for writing is using playdough.
Here is a simple playdough recipe for you to make at home.
At school, the children are great at helping to make the playdough that we use. They really enjoy it too.
Once you've made it, have fun exploring it.
There is also something called dough disco which are specific exercises to strengthen finger muscles. See below for a video or search 'dough disco' on Youtube for lots more ideas.
