 Reception Home Learning for the Summer Term

Hello Butterflies and Bumble Bees.

We will send a weekly email out to all Reception parents. This will be sent on Fridays and will outline home learning activities and support for the forthcoming week. Please let your child's teacher know if you have not received this- it is sent out via School Comms. so it will send to the main email address that the school office hold for you. If you need this email forwarded to a different address just let us know.

 jsim@caen.devon.sch.uk                  cberridge@caen.devon.sch.uk                lmelvillebrown@caen.devon.sch.uk 

Below you will find all the resources you need for this week's home learning as outlined in the email. 

We have also listed some extra links and resources lower down the page in case you want to explore different themes or want to make it easier to combine your child's learning with older siblings.

Below there is also a 'Talk for Writing' lesson pack for Reception from Pie Corbett called 'Rainy-Day Rabbit', which gives lots of reading and writing learning activities based around a story by Sue Cove. 

Please do not hesitate to email your child's teacher if you have any questions and we would love to receive wow moments, photos or messages to celebrate achievements. Look at our gallery lower down this page for some of the learning happening at school and at home this term- you might see some familar faces!

We miss you all and hope to see you very soon x

Coming back to school bubble videos and extra stories you might like to share at the bottom of this page.

This week's learning (WB 6th July)

This week we will be learning all about dinosaurs and our main story is The Dinosaur that Pooped a Planet!  written by Dougie Poynter and Tom Fletcher. We hope that you enjoy sharing the story at home or in school. We have posted a video of the story below. We have also posted a Makaton signed video of the story Dinosaur Roar.

The White Rose slides with suggested Maths and Play activities based around this story are available to download below and there is a narrated version on the White Rose Maths website https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/  We have added some optional extra ideas for home learning play and there is a writing activity where children are encouraged to write descriptive dinosaur sentences. You may also want to watch any episode of Andy's Dinosaur Adventures on cbeebies.

In the RWI support section there is a video showing how to support your child to write a sentence with the set 2 sounds. Under this video there is an idea for a maths lesson to understand place value for numbers 10 to 20, this could be repeated frequently.

In school we will be following these  slides every day, but may need to adapt the activities to fit new guidelines. In a similar way, feel free to adapt the activities to suit the resources you have available at home.

If you are at home please practise your speed sounds with Mrs Sim and continue to read daily, following the RWI structure, using the books on Oxford Owl. All of the resources needed for this are below in the RWI support section. If you have been following this structure since the start of term, as suggested, you may be ready to move on to the next colour band of books. If unsure, feel free to email. We are also continuing to focus on reading and spelling the Reception Red words and you can find these below too. Each week we will be revisiting a group of letters to ensure that they are formed correctly. Your child's green sound book will support this. This week we are practising the letters v, w, u and y. 

Please keep in touch via email with us- both Butterfly bubbles contact Mrs Sim, both Bumblebee bubbles contact Mrs Berridge and Mrs Melville-Brown.
