Week beginning 11th October
Here are some tasks to help you with your home learning...
Phonics - choose a sound a day. (or 2 if you are up to the challenge)
This week we are looking at the sounds
Say the sound
Go for a hunt around the house for words starting with the sound.
Can you have a go at drawing a picture of some of the things you have found?
Have a go at writing the initial sound for the word to practise. Can you write any more letters from the word?
Here is a link to some songs that we use in class to help with your own word treasure hunts at home.
There are some resources below if you would like to have a go at some recording sheets...
There is an eye-spy game too... Maybe you could create your own.
This week we are looking at counting to 5 and adding up to 5. We are doing this through stories. The links are below.
Task 1: A Squash and a Squeeze by Julia Donaldson
Listen to the story.
Count how many animals go in the house. Don't forget one more for the old lady. Can you match the people to a number?
1 2 3 4 5
Below is a 5 frame (A long grid - one square down 5 squares across) We use 5 frames to help us to count in Reception. We put oe item in each square and look at how many spaces there are to make 5 and how many we have so far. )
Task 2: Seaweed soup by Stuart J. Murphy
Listen to the story
Can you set up a tea party - who will be coming to share your soup? Will it be seaweed soup? Can you make sure that everyone has a bowl, spoon and a seat? Who is coming to your special meal?
Task 3: The Enormous Turnip
There are some resources below to give you some more opportunities to explore the story.
Can you listen to the story - you may even have a copy at home to read together?
Can you count how many characters are used to pull the turnip out? Can you add them to the 5 frame from the last task?
What happens if you need more than 1 Five Frame?
Communication Language and Literacy
This week we are using the Enormous Turnip as a focus story - it is a traditional tale that has been used for many years. It is a really good story for young children as it has repetition, counting on, one more and a hero at the end!
The Enormous Turnip - use the story to retell.
Make some puppets and create a puppet show.
Build your own puppets from Lego / Duplo.
Make some masks and be a one-man story.
Use your toys to create your story.
Write the story
Draw pictures to retell the story.
Have fun with it!
