Home Learning

Week of the 30.11.20

The home learning is based on the teaching and learning that the children would be receiving in class with many of the activities being the same wherever possible. Over the course of the week, we ask that the children complete as many of the home learning tasks as possible. Home learning will be placed on the school website weekly and is for those children who are having to self-isolate at home. (There will also be homework set, this can be found by clicking on the Homework tab).

If you have any questions for the Reception team, please feel free to email us at reception@grafton.bardaglea.org.uk and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Please email in completed home learning to the email address above with your child's name and class for your child's class teacher to review. Thank you

 

Literacy

This week we are on week 2 of Oi Frog? If you do not have the book at home, then you can watch the video below. 

Lesson 1 - This lesson is recapping and exploring the book. It is also looking into consolidating your child's knowledge of the text. Please start by reading the book together. Discuss holding the book the correct way and how the words go from left to right. As you read, stop at some on some of the words. Can they sound them out, for example 'mat', 'log' and 'cat'. Do they recognise some of the high frequency words, for example 'and' and 'here'.

Can your child remember the different items which go with the animal. 'cat and mat' and 'storks and forks'. You can have a list of the different animals and the objects and see if your child can match them. 

Lesson 2 - This lesson will be working on rhyming. name some of the animals and have them partnered to the wrong things, for example frog and coat, goat and wizard and lizard and log. Are they right? Can your child sort them correctly? Did they notice anything when you read it, for example it was rhyming, or they might say it doesn't sound right. They may also notice something with the spellings for example lizard and wizard,  goat and coat and frog and log, If your child does not notice this, then please discuss it with them. Now you have explained about the rhyme within the text, you can see if your child can have a go at choosing rhyming words - for example what else could cat sit on? Explain you are looking for words with an 'at' in. If your child is unsure then support by having a selection of 'at' words (hat, rat, bat) and other words your child can read read (sit, pin, tap). Which words rhyme? How do you know they rhyme? is there something you notice all of the rhyming words? Can you make any other rhymes up? 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

Maths

This week we will be learning number 8

  • Please model how to write number 8
  • Look at where number 8 is on a number line. It is 1 more than 7 and 1 less than 9,  or 1 more than 8 is 8 and 1 less than 8 is 7
  • Look at different ways of making 8 - 4+4, 3+5, 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1,  etc. 
 

Physical Development

As part of our Phonics link we have been practising forming our letters. Please can you help your child form the letters s, a, t, p, i and n. Please support your child by modelling how to hold a pencil and by modelling how to start each letter. in the homework section there is n attachment with all of the letters correctly formed. 

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

This week, it is being aware of other's feelings. Start by asking your child to make a happy/sad/grumpy/worried face. You can then discuss what makes them happy. It can be certain people, games, food etc. Once you have discussed things that make them happy ask them if they can explain how happy makes them feel. It could be smiling, laughing, wanting to do certain things. Then think about other people. Does everyone like the same food etc. How might it make other people feel. Discuss. 

You can also think about what your child needs to do if they feel sad or if they see someone who is sad.
