Reception weekly overview!

This week's learning for wb 24th May.

Here is an overview of this week's learning;



This week we are going to be continuing to look at farms and farm animals. We will read the story 'Wake-up on Bumble Farm' and recap our rhyme from last week and try to spot rhyming words in the story.
We will also think about the different types of jobs that people do on a farm and also look at what a Scarecrow and is and what they do.

In numeracy, we are going to be recapping halving. We will start off by looking at halves of shapes and then go onto looking at halves of quantities. We will also look at odd and even numbers and learn how to spot these.

Fine Motor activities

Some favourites of ours in school are as follows;

⭐ Dough disco (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3K-CQrjI0uY).  A good home recipe for playdough can be found here: https://theimaginationtree.com/best-ever-no-cook-play-dough-recipe/ 

⭐ Using pegs. Get your child to help you peg up the washing or create a washing line at home with some string. You could then peg your number cards to this to practise ordering. Maybe you can add in a time challenge and see if your child can beat their previous time!

⭐ Zipping up a coat. This is a handy one for school and this time of year too. ❄

⭐ Cutting. Practising using scissors and cutting along zig zags, straight lines and spirals is a useful skill to try and perfect!

⭐ Colouring. Try to keep within those lines!

⭐ Lego.

⭐ Using foam/flour/coloured rice to write in is also a fun way to practise mark making and letter/number formation

Pinterest also has lots of fantastic ideas and is one of our teacher go tos!


Letter formation

We thought it might be useful to share the letter formation rhymes again that we use in school to form our letters. We have shared videos of how to form these previously but we will try and get all the videos uploaded onto our class pages on the school website.

You can find more information about the programme (Read, Write, Inc.) that we use for letter formation here: https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/ 

You can also find a schedule that shows when free phonics sessions will be delivered (using this programme) on YouTube via the link below. These will be at 9:30am and available for 24hrs after airing.
