Wednesday 20th May

Good morning Reception 

Welcome to Wednesday's learning - Don't forget to check in with the caterpillars today. 


Personal Social and Emotional Development - Relationships

I hope you have been working hard on your posters.

Here are the notes form Monday to remind you about the task...

Task – I would like you to make a poster that has all of the things we have thought about over the last 5 weeks about things being fair and unfair.  What Nina and Tom have been through, how the giant helped Nina. Your pictures that you created last week.  This poster will be a celebration of your understanding and how you are able to accept that sometimes things are not fair but it is up to us to stay calm and cope when they are not.

LISTEN, LOOK and THINK are really good words to have on your poster to help you organise your thoughts – a starting point for you – I am looking forward to seeing them.

Maths - Number

Doubling - a happy song about the ‘Double number zoo’!


Double Number Zoo - Teach Addition of Double Numbers

To help with doubling numbers

Maths task:

Can you have a go at creating your own double number zoo today – you can use your blocks, draw it, make it - show it however you like as long as you are showing the doubles.  Can you show the doubles to 10? Can you go beyond?

Knowledge and Understanding of the World - Religion


RE – Can you watch clip 6,7 and 8 today - this takes you from Jesus promising his friends that God will look after them and then he says goodbye to his friends.  All of the people are able to talk in different languages because God has sent the Holy Spirit.


You made your beautiful gardens 5 weeks ago – If you still have them or you could just look out your window to your garden / next door/ across the road / a picture in a book – anywhere that shows something pretty growing that makes you think about how lovely it is and you can look at quietly for a few minutes.


Jesus has gone back to be with his father in heaven. Jesus friends were scared and lonely as they felt alone. When the Holy Spirit came it gave them strength and courage and power to be brave and tell everyone about God and how much he loves us. I have added a short film which the children may enjoy about the Pentecost story.

The Holy Spirit Comes (Day of Pentecost)

Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

Questions to ask the children: Once they have watched the clip.

Q  Do the people look happy or sad?

Q  What are they all coming out to see?

Task: Can you draw a picture and / or tell your grown up what you remember from the Pentecost story.
