Below is the weekly planning overview which outlines the learning objectives (WALTs) and the tasks which you could do at home this week.
Please support your child to cut out The Very Hungry Caterpillar pictures for the sequencing task this week. There are additional scissor tasks below if you wish to complete them too.
The resources below will help you to represent number 13. We have also uploaded the Numicon shapes if you want to explore different ways to make number 13.
Please print the PDF document below to create your weekly diary. This is your writing task and shape, space and measure task. If you don't have a printer then please be creative and create your own grid. The YouTube link below will help your child remember the order of the days of the week.
Miss Stansfield has created two videos below to help you read and write words with adjacent consonants. Please enjoy and complete the tasks she will set during the video. There are also two videos created by the Department for Education- these two videos help consolidate phase 3 knowledge. Please spend time watching all four videos this week.
An additional challenge is to look around your house to find 5 objects that contain adjacent consonants. This activity is promoting listening skills as children listen to the sounds in words. Are they digraphs / trigraphs? Are they adjacent consonants? Examples of words with adjacent consonants that might be in your house are: slippers, trousers, spoon, pencil etc. Miss Stansfield discusses the different things she found in video number 2.
If your child is struggling to blend sounds then please use the links in the next section "Blending Sounds".
Blending is a very difficult skill and we will get there with practice. Please model blending to help your child blend sounds successfully (separate the sounds e.g. cat = c - a - t). Please use these videos below to help your child blend sounds.
This week we are thinking about the life cycle of a butterfly. Can you show the life cycle of the butterfly? Be as creative as you like. Below are some examples of things you could do.
This week we thought it would be nice to create some artwork based on The Very Hungry Caterpillar. You might like to create paintings in the style of Eric Carle, make fruit kebab caterpillars or beautiful butterflies. We would love to see some of your pictures, models or paintings so please send them to us on the Reception class email. Below are some ideas to get you started.
This week White Rose Maths have provided activities based on one of our favourite books: The Very Hungry Caterpillar. As we know a lot of you love this book, we have decided to set some of our tasks based on this book too.
