Reception Home Learning W/B 22/02/21

Hello Everybody!

I hope you have all had a wonderful, restful half term break 🙂 

I can’t wait to see what this half term has in store for us! Hopefully we will all be back at school together by the end of this half term – fingers crossed! 

For the next couple of weeks, our topic will be “People Who Help Us”, one of my favourite topics! We will be looking at different people who work hard to keep us safe – doctors, firefighters, dentists, postmen/women, lollipop men/women, ambulance, police, dentists, and more. We will think about their jobs, what they do, what equipment they need, what uniforms they wear, and how they all help us.

We will be looking at measurement in Maths, comparing height and length.

We will be learning new Phase 3 sounds in Phonics!

As usual, PhonicsMaths and Topic are uploaded here on the website for the week.  In addition to this, for our wider curriculum subjects (R.E.P.E. and Art) there will be an activity uploaded each day to Seasaw so keep your eyes out on there for those, and also for my videos doing our daily calendar and story time! ? 

A quick reminder that we still have our Zoom calls too – Mondays 9:15am KS1 Worship, Wednesday 1:30pm Live Class, Friday 10:45am Celebration Assembly. Link reminders to the Zooms are posted on Seasaw on the morning of the call! 

Have a wonderful week everyone. I can’t wait to see all of your work this week that you upload on Seasaw! 🙂

Tuesday: We think again about the people who help us. Today we will look at what different equipment they all need! We will then choose a special helper, and write a list of the equipment they need. Loom:

Wednesday: (Live Zoom 1:30pm) There has been a crime in our classroom! Let’s think about what Policemen and Policewomen need to do to solve a crime! What will they be looking for? We will draw a crime scene including fingerprints, and write a sentence asking for help! For example, “go and get help”, “she/he needs help”, “look for fingerprints!”, “ring 999!” listing what to do. This will be modelled and explained on our live zoom 🙂 Crime scene evidence sheet!: A4 Presentation Police Page Border  Fingerprint activity: Fantastic-Fingerprints-Activity-Sheet
