Good morning Reception,
I hope you are having a good week.
Well done to all of you for working so hard on your remote learning. It is not easy but I can see you are trying your best! You are learning new things every day. It is fantastic to see how much work you are doing on Purple Mash. I check your trays regularly and I can see how much work you are doing. It is great to see how you are using Purple Mash to show me the work you are doing from this blog. Keep it up!
Here is your learning for today:
Phonics: Keep practising the sounds we have learned and blending those sounds to make words. Watch the video and join in with Rachel. Today you will also need some paper and a pencil to write with.
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 are going to practise some more letters from the curly caterpillar family.
Literacy: Today we are going to draw the end of our story maps today. See the video below for today's lesson.
Have a go at filling different size cups or containers with water. Can you make a cup full? How do you make it empty? How many full cups of water would fill a jug? Can you fill a cup so it is nearly empty? Can you tell when a glass is nearly full? Remember to talk about what you notice. e.g This glass is full. This glass is nearly empty.
R.E. Look at the picture below. It is showing an important story from the Bible called The Presentation story. Mary and Joseph took Jesus to the Temple.
Here is the story to share while you are looking at the picture.
Mary and Joseph took baby Jesus to the Temple in Jerusalem. They wanted to present him to God and thank God for giving them their lovely boy.
Whilst they were there they met two people, Simeon and Anna. They went to the Temple every day to pray. Simeon took Jesus in his arms and gave thanks to God. He said a prayer over Jesus and blessed Mary and Joseph. He said Jesus was like a light to help people. Anna was delighted to see Jesus and gave thanks to God for him.
Afterwards Mary and Joseph took Jesus home to Nazareth.
Now, think about these questions. Can you talk about the answer in a full sentence?
