Hello Reception. Hope you have been keeping safe and well. Here is your home learning for this week.
Reading - This is the last week of reading Mavis the Magical cat.
Listen here https://soundcloud.com/talkforwriting/mavis
Monday - Read or listen to the story. P24 Ladybird has been thinking about different parts of her body. Have a go at reading the words then match the words to the parts of Ladybird's body. Have a go at drawing a ladybird and writing the names of the parts of its body.
Tuesday - p25 Read the poem called Who's Counting. Can you change your voice to match the words in the poem?
Wednesday - p26 Read together the letter to Mavis from Marigold. On p27 look at the photos of the fruit and vegetables. Do you know what they are? Talk about the colour, size, shape, patterns and textures that you can see. Have you got any of them in your fridge?
Thursday - If you can, go out for a walk. Collect a few natural objects. Describe them using the words on p28. Remember to talk in full sentences - The stone is smooth and flat.
Friday - Read together the poem Dr Knickerbocker on p29. Do the actions as you say it.
Do some counting every day - Count objects around your house. How many windows do you have? How many chairs? How many beds? How many doors? How many tables? Remember the last number you count is the total number of what you have.
PE - Choose a song and work together to create a dance. Who can remember all the moves? Play musical bumps or musical statues - Play music. When the music stops, freeze like a statue or bump onto the floor.
R.E. Create a prayer area/altar to Mary like you did for the last two weeks. Did you know that Mary is also known as the Queen of Nature? Put a natural object on your altar such as a stone, flower or a leaf. Say the Hail Mary together. Think about all the wonderful things that God created for us to enjoy.
Monday - Enjoy this counting storybook called Ten Monkey Jamboree.
Tuesday - In the story Ten Monkey Jamboree, there were lots of ways to make 10. Can you find different ways to make 10?
Get 10 objects - anything you can find 10 of will do - pegs or lego bricks or buttons. Separate the ten objects into two groups e.g 1 and 9. Push the two groups together. Count the objects. How many are there altogether? When you find one way, practice saying it in a sentence e.g 1 and 9 make 10, 2 and 8 make 10, 3 and 7 make 10... Can you spot the pattern? What will come next? Challenge: Can you say how many I need to add to 3 to make 10 altogether? Use your objects to find what adds to 3 to make 10. Try to keep these objects somewhere safe. You will need them again on Friday.
Wednesday - Look at this picture. Think about what you can see. Remember to use full sentences to talk about what you can see. 3 big fish and 4 small fish make 7 fish altogether. Can you make up some of your own questions about objects in the picture? Can you make up a number story to go with the picture? - First 2 octopuses were in the sea. Then 3 more octopuses came along. Now there are 8 octopuses altogether.
Thursday - Watch this counting backwards story from Cbeebies called Ten Little Pirates
Friday - Find your 10 objects that you had on Tuesday. Count your objects to make sure you have 10. Now pick up 1 of your objects and hide it behind your back. How many have you got left? Talk about what has happened - First I had 10. Then I took 1 away. Now I have 9 left. Continue taking 1 away each time like in the story from yesterday. Remember to say what has happened - First I had 9 or 8 or 7 etc Then I took 1 away. Now I have 8 left or 7 left etc Keep going until you have only 1 left. What happens if you take that one away? Now I have 0 (zero) left. Talk about what 0 means (none left, nothing at all).
Challenge - Do something arty.
