Now you are familiar with the story of Handa's Surprise, try and have ago at sequencing the story pictures below... 

If this is too tricky, don't worry! Just select a few pictures and put them in order of beginning, middle and end. 

Challenge- can you sequence all of the pictures?

(If unable to print, draw some of the animals and fruit to sequence instead)

Mathematics / High School Math

Let’s warm up with counting in tens!

Can you count backwards in tens?

 

Today is all about matching numbers... Here you will see below I have the same amount in two different ways.

Today we are going to have fun with Music! 

 

Listen to a piece of music called the “Zebra Crossing” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6QfaIeEGs4 played by a group called the “Soweto String Quartet” from Africa.  After the initial slow section of music at the beginning, the challenge is to feel the pulse/beat and silently move shoulders back and forth.

Now try to tap to the pulse/beat on thighs.  Try to repeat this activity  and try different body percussion sounds. 

Maybe you could clap or stomp?

 

Did you enjoy this piece of music? Why?

Good morning everyone! Let’s get moving!!

Now we are awake and ready to learn!

 

 Literacy clipart english, Picture #2921807 literacy clipart english

I hope you are enjoying the story of Handa. Please continue to re-read/watch the story of Handa. Repetition helps us to learn new vocabulary and sequence the story.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocnRQi89nK8

 

 

 

 

 

Today we are looking at speech. This is when somebody is talking. I was wondering what might the animals in the story say if they could speak? I think the Monkey might say “Haha! My banana!”

Remember it is ok to only write sounds you hear, it doesn’t have to be spelt correctly.

(See document below for speech bubbles or draw your own)

If this is too challenging- focus on just hearing the first sound in the word.

Mathematics / High School Math

Let’s warm up with counting!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=By2hmo323xM

Today is all about the number 8! How many ways can you make 8?

 

Draw your own ladybird and use spots or a pen to make 8 in different ways. How many ways did you find?

Topic Concept Watercolor Word Art — Stock Photo © enterlinedesign #125373262

Did you enjoy learning all about Africa? What animals can you remember that live there? Which was your favourite?

 

Today have a think about Handa’s surprise for Akeyo. What a lovely friend she is to Akeyo! If you were going to collect some gifts for a friend, what would you give them? Why?

What surprises have people organised for you? Can you think of a nice surprise that you could arrange for somebody else?

Can you write a list of what makes a good friend?

Or draw a picture of something that makes you smile!

Time to get moving Reception…

Phew! Now let’s begin….

Literacy clipart english, Picture #2921807 literacy clipart english

I hope you enjoyed watching Handa’s Surprise! Have a think…

What was the surprise Handa got?

Can you remember where Handa lived?

What animals did you see sneaking Handa’s fruit?

What a kind friend Handa was, taking fruit to Akeyo! What kind things have you done for somebody else? How did it make them feel?

Today re-read/watch the story of Handa…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocnRQi89nK8

 

 

Ask a grown up at home to help you create some puppets like below (you can either print or make your own!)  Can you role play they story talking about beginning, middle and end. (See document below for puppets)

Challenge- Have a try at making the story different ( like the tiger who came to tea activity when we changed the tiger to a mouse). Maybe Handa has something different in the basket? Who could steal it?

If this is too challenging- Focus animal names and vocabulary from the story. Try to talk about the main events of the story.

I hope you enjoyed l listening to Six for dinner Sid! What a greedy cat!

I hoped you had fun making prints and fruit baskets like Handa’s! Today we are going to take a little virtual trip to Africa! Take a look at the Powerpoint below and to learn all about Africa. Ask a grown up to look at Africa on Google Earth with you! What do you notice? Have a think before you look…

What do you think the weather is like in Africa?

How do you think we could travel to Africa?

How might it be different or the same to where you live?

Friday 15/01/20

Good morning everyone and happy Friday! We would usually have our celebration assembly today, but don't worry we still have our Star of the week! Check the school newsletter to find out who! 

 

Here is one of our class favourite Just Dance videos, to get us in the Friday mood... 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpY4ZTV7Fm0

 

Literacy

 So we hoped you enjoyed reading and listening to our new story this week. Did you know the author of Monkey Puzzle is the same author as some of our other favourites such as, The Gruffalo, Meg and Mog, Stick man and many others. You might notice how the illustrations look similar, that is because they were all drawn by Axel Scheffler. Ask a grown up to re-read or watch one of our previous stories. Reading the same books over and over is really good for our brains, it helps us comprehend more of the story and the sequence and it also improves our vocabulary. 

For our last activity for Monkey Puzzle, can you listen to the description of the animals and write/draw what animal you think it is. Remember to try to write all the letters you can hear. 

Maths

Great work everybody on number composition. Learning how numbers are made up of different amounts helps expand our number concept. 

Here is an activity to challenge you today- There are 5 cubes all of the time. Some our hidden in the bucket. Use what you know about number 5 to figure out how man are in the bucket. You can use your fingers to help you too. Repeat this activity yourself with different amounts in the bucket. Can you record this as a number sentence?

      

Here is a link to a fun counting game, remember to continue to practice counting amounts and saying the total.

Can your draw a map of the jungle. Maybe you could draw the route that Monkey took when looking for his mum. Add the animals on to a map in the order he seen them. You could even number the animals in the correct order.

Some important things to remember at the start of the year...

 

    • Reception P.E. lessons take place every Tuesday, please send your child to school in their P.E. kit.
    • To prevent items being lost, please label ALL items of clothing (including velcro fastening shoes).
    • Look out for our online weekly newsletter, detailing ways to support your child at home. There will be a home learning task to complete each week. Please do not return any work to school at the moment.
    • Staff must be notified each time somebody different is collecting your child (we can only release your child with your permission). 
    • Please do not bring toys into school, keep them safe at home.
    • It is essential that school has an up to date contact number for you, please remember to inform us of any changes.

    • Remember to send book bags into school on Friday, we will send reading books home every Monday. 

 

Child Development

Please find below some useful information about child development. We would typically expect Reception children to be working within the 40-60+ months statements. Whilst this is only a guideline, it will give you some idea on how your child is doing and how to best support them at home.
