Thursday 25th February 2021. Literacy home learning for Clee and Earls Hill Reception (Cygnets)

 

Good morning Reception children and families!

 

Here is the link to the ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers story if you would like to listen to it again:

 

Today I would like you to think of what you would take with you if you were travelling to the South Pole.

Grown ups – please could you find different items to keep you warm; scarf, hat, wellies, coat etc and some items which you would wear when it’s hot e.g. shorts, cap, swim wear etc. If you have a suitcase or a bag which your child can pack that would be great. Place all the items together and ask your child to choose the items they would need to take with them to the South Pole and pack them into the suitcase or bag.

When they have done this I would like them to make a list of the items they have packed. Please encourage your child to use their Fred Talk to sound out and write the words on their list.

Here is a link to a template for the list if you wish to print off:

I would also like your child to read a book with you.

I would like you and your child to write letters onto pieces of paper or outside using chalk. If you say a sound can your child jump on that sound? If you say a simple word can your child jump on and say the correct sounds that make that word?

Thursday 25th February 2021. Maths home learning for Clee and Earls Hill Reception (Cygnets)

 

We are going to start our maths learning by joining in some number songs:

 

 

Today we are going to look at and have a go at making some repeating patterns.

repeating pattern is a type of pattern where the rule just keeps on repeating over and over.

Here are some examples of repeating patterns:

There is a link below which will take you to some animals which live in cold climates which you can cut out and use to make a repeating pattern:

animals for repeat patterns

If you are unable to print out the animals you can use objects which you have in your house or garden.

For the activity you will need:

 

Please remember to send me some photographs of your repeating patterns and how you have made them.

Thursday 25th February – Earls Hill and Clee Science / UTW

Joseph was taken to Egypt.

 

Egypt has large hot sandy deserts. Here are some pictures for you to have a look at .

Can you use these words in a sentence and say them to your grown up.

Here are some examples.

  • ” A desert is very sandy”
  • “The sun makes a desert very hot”

Here are some slides about desert habitats, and the animals that live in deserts. Look at them and talk about them with your grown up.

Follow this link to open the slides as a PDF, they may be easier to view.

Now follow this link to join the BBC Bitesize page about desert habitats. There is a video for you to watch and a quiz for you to try.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zx882hv/articles/zsqnfg8

Reception/Cygnets – Please choose a desert animal and draw a picture of it. Perhaps you could label your drawing too?

Or you could follow this link if you have a printer to print off a sheet to label a camel.

Do you have any desert toy animals in your house that you could play with?

Year 1 (Swans) – Please choose a desert animal. I’d like you to create a fact file about this animal. Tell me what it eats, where it lives and what its babies are called. Does it live alone or in a group? Draw a picture of your desert animal to go with your fact file. Talk to your grown up about how your animal can live in the hot, dry sunny desert.

Now have a go at this game:

Thursday 25th February Earls Hill Swans (Year 1) Maths.

Hello!

Today can you warm up with some jumping? Ask your grown up to hold up one of your 1-20 number cards. Shout out the number as loud as you can and then do that many star jumps, counting them carefully!

Today we are going to work on identifying numbers that are one more or one less.

We are going to join Hedwig and watch another video from the Oak National Academy. Please stop the video once the teacher starts explaining the independent task however, as I would like you to complete the task I have set instead.

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-identify-one-more-and-one-less-than-a-number-within-20-ccvkae?activity=video&step=2&view=1

Watch the first part of the video, but do not complete the independent task. Please complete the following task instead. It is very similar, but a bit less confusing!

You will need to draw out a table similar to this on a piece of paper. The middle column on the table says ‘My Number’. The left hand column says ‘One Less’ and the right hand column on the table says ‘One More’.

Here is a link to a PDF of the table, you can print  it off, or click on the link to make it easier for you to see the table and copy it.

One More One Less table to complete

You will also need your number line, and the number word mat from your resource pack.

There are two options for finding the number to go in the middle column.

You can either close your eyes and pick a number card, or you can put all your counters into a dish, grab a handful and count them.

When you have got your number, write the number digit and number word in the middle column of the table, like this.

 

Now find the number you have put on the table on your number line. Draw a circle around it.  I picked  the number 14, so I have found and circled the number 14 on the number  line. Use your jumps to work out what number is one less than the number you have written, in my case, the number 14. (Remember less means the number will be smaller) .

Now fill in that number digit and number word in the left hand column of the table, the ‘one less’ column.

one less than 14 is 13

13 is one less than 14.

Go back to your original number on the number line, use your jumps to work out, what is one more. Remember your number will get bigger.

Now write that number digit and number word into the ‘more than’ column of your table.

one more than 14 is 15

15 is one more than 14

Repeat this activity, using a different number. Either pick a different number card with your eyes closed or put the counters back into the dish and grab another handful.

Repeat this activity at least 8 times, filling in the table each time. Please send me a picture on Dojo.

Follow this link to play an interactive game to practise your one more and one less counting skills. Select the ‘1 more 1 less’ option and then click on numbers to 20.

Thursday 25th February Earls Hill Swans (Year 1) Literacy

Good morning everyone. Well done with your work yesterday, you all sound very well prepared for a trip to the South Pole!

Image result for south pole

Today we are going to think about something new in the story. Here is the story if you need reminding.


In the story the waves are described as being ‘as big as mountains.’

Can you say that? “As big as mountains”.

Mountains are very big aren’t they?!

When something is described as being ‘as’ or ‘like’ something else, it is called a simile.

We  use a simile when we are saying that something is like something else.

Here are some examples to explain this idea.

  • If a little boy does not say very much, he is a quiet boy. We might say, ‘the boy was as quiet as a mouse’.
  • Some cars are really fast, especially racing cars! We might say, ‘the car was as fast as a cheetah.’ 

Using similes  in your work can make your speaking and writing more interesting.

Here is a video I have made with my friend Monkey, explaining a little more about similes.

Today I would like you to have a go at writing some similes. Can you finish saying and then write out this sentence that I have started for you?

The plane was as loud as a…………

The girl was strong like ……..

Now try writing some sentences of your own, using these pictures:

Remember your capital letter, full stops and finger spaces. Once you have finished, send me a picture of your work on Dojo.

After you have written your sentences, have a go at this game.

https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/helpAHedgehog/index.html

Ask your grownup to select ‘Phase 3 ch, sh, th, ng’ and see how many words you can read. See if you can beat your high score!

Once you have played that game, ask your grownup to select ‘Phase 3 ccvc/cvcc words’ and have a go at that level too.

Can you read a Big Club book today too please.

Well done everyone, you are working really hard.

Wednesday 24th February 2021. Literacy home learning for Clee and Earls Hill Reception (Cygnets)

 

Good morning Reception children and families!

 

Here is another chance to listen to and watch the ‘Lost and Found’ story:

 

Today we are going to read and follow simple captions. Below is a link to some pictures and captions for you to print out to use for the activity. If you are unable to print them out you can draw the boy and the penguin from the story and your grown up can write you simple captions to read and follow. Grown ups – when you have printed out the captions please cut them into strips so that your child can choose one to read at a time. Also cut out the different objects as they will be used singularly in the captions.

For the activity I would like you to choose one of the captions and try to read it. Grown ups – if your child is finding it tricky to read the captions please help them and let them follow out the instruction.

Here is the link and pictures of the resources you need for the activity:

Lost and Found captions   

 

 

Today I would also like you to practise the tricky word song:

 

Also practise writing your name and the names of some of the people and animals who live in your house; remember to use your Fred Talk to help you write the names. 

Please also read a book from Bug Club with someone from your family.

 

Today the Read Write Inc Phonics have restarted the set 1 sounds. As you have now learned all the set 1 sounds I would like you to choose 5 sounds to practise writing. Can you think of some word which start with the sounds? Are you feeling really clever? Clever enough to write some of the words you’ve thought of?

Here are links to some phonics games:

Wednesday 24th February 2021. Maths home learning for Clee and Earls Hill Reception (Cygnets)

 

Today we are going to start our maths learning with some number songs:

 

Today we are going to play a maths game. Below is the link to the printable subitising activity. If you can please print out the activity. Cut out the mouth on the penguin and connect it to a tube or box. The ask your child to pick up one of the fish, look at the dot pattern on the fish and say the number they have (subitising). Once they have said the number, they can feed the penguin the fish.

Feed the Penguin Poster

Fish Cut-Outs

To extend the activity your child can write the number sentence and the total. Ask your child to pick up a fish, look at the dot pattern on the fish and say the number. When they have done this ask them to write the number onto some paper then think of the + symbol. As them to pick up one more fish and repeat the process. Can they remember the = symbol? Can they calculate the number sentence?

 

Here are some number games for you to try:
