4th March - Thursday - World Book Day

Good morning Reception. Welcome to Thursday

Today is World Book Day - Obviously a slightly different day from what we would like to do today. If you would like to dress up at home I would love to see your outfits.  Do you have a favourite book character? Maybe an animal from Rumble in the Jungle?

You could make a mask or headdress!

Or you could carry out Mr English's challenge to make a potato as a book character.  I have added some resources for making Supertato below.  I have also added some PDF's for you below -  to make bookmarks, a book scavenger hunt and an activity book for you to fill in - Maybe a keepsake for your 'Lock-down World Book Day'. There are some lovely resources on the World Book Day webpage, if you would like to check them out later.

World book day is all about celebrating books - make sure you spend time looking at books today reading them, sharing them and enjoying them!



Let's start our day by getting active. here is this week's PE for you. I hope you enjoy the sessions - Dance this week!

PE session

Here is a link to a warm-up game – It may be one to play with someone in your family.  Watch the clip and then have a go.  This is the warm-up.

I have attached a lesson plan below for you –

Here is the video link to help you visualise the session. Session 4 of Dance.

Session 1


Now we have worked through our letters we are going to use them to create words beginning with hhhh

Here are a few to start you off.

Hat, had, horse, house… can you think of some more?

Session 2  - Zoom Session

Communication Language and Literacy

We are going to have another look at Rumble in the Jungle today - yesterday you listened to the descriptions and then created an animal and did a little bit of writing.  I would like you to choose a second animal today but to start with the writing.

Your task today: can you choose an animal, think of a sentence that you want to say about the animal.  Then I would like you to make your animal.  You could create your animal from some of your toys, Lego, building blocks, beads etc. could you send me a picture of what you have created.


Session 3 - Zoom session


Today’s focus is Making 10.

We are continuing our work in the phase of making 9 and 10.

Here is the White Rose page - Just in case

We are going to have a look at some number line problems to start us off.

Today we are going to play a game about making 10.  In the session we are going to look at 2 numbers that make 10. Using a 10 frame, number cards and dice.

Your task today – place numeral cards 1-10 on the floor or around the room.  You need to turn one over at a time.  How many counters would you need to fill the 10 frame. If I had this 10 frame it shows 3 counters on the 10 frame – which number do I need to go and find to fill the 10 frame?

Have fun!

For the rest of the day - Have fun doing something for World Book day - Check out the resources online.
