Hello Reception. Have you had a good week? Hope you are still keeping safe and well. Here is your home learning for this week. Remember that you don't need to do the work all in one go. Do one task, take a break then do another one. The final task can be done any time during the week. Don't forget - it is still important to play!
Remember to continue to read a book or read to your child every day. Listen to a Cbeebies bedtime story. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/b00jdlm2/cbeebies-bedtime-stories
This week why don’t you try to draw your favourite part of the story. Can you talk about why you like it?
Don’t forget to count every day – Can you say all the number names in order to 20? Can you count backwards from 10? Sing 5 little ducks or 5 little speckled frogs.
5 little speckled frogs, sat on a speckled log, Eating some most delicious bugs – yum, yum! One jumped into the pool, where it was nice and cool, Now there are 4 green speckled frogs then continue to 3, 2, 1

You could also watch the Numberblocks songs for each number. https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/playlist-numberblocks-songs#playlist
Find things around your house to do with that number. Draw, stick, take pictures of anything in your house to do with that number e.g draw 6 dots on a dice, collect 10 lego bricks, take a picture of 8 leaves. Show the number on your fingers. Can you write each number in your book? Challenge: Can you say how many objects there are (up to 5) without counting them? Can you say what is 1 more or 1 less than each number up to 10? Choose two numbers, make them with objects and say which number is more or less. Make some number cards - can you order the numbers from 1-10? Count backwards from 10.
Create your own feely bag, such as an old rucksack, an empty tissue box or cereal box (please no plastic bags) with items in from around the house. Use a bag that you cannot see through. This is a great way for children to explore their senses. Encourage your child to think about what the object feels like and use describing words for the objects. Are they bumpy, bubbly, rough or furry? Children can develop a wide vocabulary by thinking about different texture words. If they are finding it difficult to come up with their own words, ask them questions such as - is it hard or soft? Is it rough or smooth? Try to use different types of objects. Challenge: Play a matching game afterwards. Can you find two objects that are bumpy or two that are smooth?
