Reception Home Learning- W.B. 11.5.2020

Welcome back everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend. Lots more fun activities for you this week. I hope you enjoy doing them.

PHONICS Let’s do some warm up activities.

Flashcard Time Challenge This is free to use. There is a special username and password for parents. Choose Phase 3/Select own graphemes….and GO! You can try different graphemes each day!

This week we are looking at the digraph oi. Let’s see what Geraldine Giraffe has to say! Then try this Wordsearch challenge!

WHITEROSE MATHS HOME LEARNING Let’s go back to The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Try Activity 3, adding together different types of fruits. You can add 2 or 3 or even 4 together. How can you record your answers on paper? Please see my video on Seesaw. My Favourite Fruit Make a list of your top 10 favourite fruits. Check with members of your family and see if you can do a tally and find out which is the most popular fruit in your household.

Now let’s practise our days of the week again.

Picnic Time Look at Activity Four. Collect some teddies or toys and have a picnic. Use play food, playdough food or even real food! Check with a grown up. Share things equally or the toys will grumble! If you can, make a video of your picnic and describe how you have shared out the picnic food.

MUSIC Let’s go to Play It! . There are some good games to help you really listen well to music. Go to BRING THE NOISE. This week, let’s go to Listen and Layer and Feel the Beat

R.E./ART Thank you for sharing videos and pictures of the pretty collections of natural objects you have found and for the way your created beautiful displays. Now you are really good at using your senses to select objects, I would like you to be a creator again and design and make something beautiful out of natural or junk materials. I have included a picture to give you some ideas. Think of the colour and the texture.

R.E./SCIENCE Be a creator and change liquids into solids!

Crazy cornflour slime

This activity is a bit messy but really fun and hands-on. You will love exploring the strange properties of liquids and solids. For best results use a large shallow container that you can put on the floor, like a sand/water tray. Mix together cornflour and water until you have a slime consistency. Add some food colour with the help of a grown up. Try punching the slime – it instantly turns solid! Roll some slime into a ball in your hand and then stop – it turns back into a liquid! It’s amazing!
