Think about how you have been Superhero this year? What have you achieved?

This story is all about those Yets that may seem hard but as we know you are all amazing superheroes and have great perseverance. Can you list any yets you have done this year? 

Remember to log on to bug phonics for your reading.

Have a lovely day

Wednesday 14th - Friday 16th July 2021

This week we have been thinking about what we’ve learned this year and how we’ve changed.  It’s been a lovely time to reflect on our year together and think about new adventures in Year 1.  We've been comparing ourselves to superheroes as we all now have special superpowers (special things about us that make us unique).  Some children have said that their superpower is that they are kind or thoughtful, others have said it’s that they’re good with numbers or they are a fast runner.  With superheroes in mind, we have some suggested activities for the children to try over the next few days while they’re isolating at home:

Personal/social: talk about moving to Year 1.  Some of you might have older brothers and sisters who can tell you what to expect in Year 1.  If not, have a look on our website: Home | Tylers Green First School  Can you find a picture of Miss Gregory & Mrs Croucher?  Can you find out what days Oak class do PE? 

Reading: daily reading on Bug Phonics.  I have checked today and everybody should have plenty of books.  If you do run out, please let us know.  There are also lots of activities to practice tricky words and sound recognition. 

Writing: if you were a real superhero, what would your superhero name be?  What would you look like?  What would your super-power be?  Can you write a few sentences to tell us?  Remember to use a capital letter at the beginning of your sentence, finger spaces between words and a full stop at the end of the sentence and no asking your grown ups how to spell words!

Maths: below you will find a range of superhero themed maths activities.  Feel free to choose one or all of them to do over the next few days. 

Creative: design an outfit for a superhero.  Think about what the superhero’s superpower is.  What sort of material would you use to make the costume?  Would you have a cape?  What sort of pattern would be on your outfit?  We would love to see pictures of your designs. 

You could also do some superhero role play at home.  Which superhero will you pretend to be?  Perhaps other people in your house could be baddies or maybe they need to be saved. 

Understanding of the world: find a superhero toy at home (or turn one of your toys into a superhero).  Can you make it float in the bath?  Can you make it travel from one end of the bath to the other?  How did you do it? 

Physical: practice for sports day (we will do sports day next week).  Our races are: running, balancing a beanbag (or a book) on your head race and egg and spoon race.  We were also planning on setting up an obstacle course at school this week.  Maybe that’s something you could do in your garden if you have one or in your house (if it’s ok with your grown ups)

 

Please try to do some reading every day as well as one of the maths activities.  Feel free to have a go at some of the other activities over the next few days.  Mrs Busler & I will post a video for you every day on the video resource centre: Reception Home Learning 2021 | Tylers Green First School (primarysite.media)  Fingers crossed that we will see you all on Monday! 

 

Week beginning 1st March 2021

One more week of home learning!  We are really looking forward to having you all back in school next week.  You've all done such a brilliant job with your learning at home.  We have loved seeing all of your work on our blog or in emails.  Thank you parents for all the time you've spent with your children, supporting them with their learning. 

For our final week of remote learning we will be learning about squirrels.  Hopefully you've all seen squirrels in your gardens or in parks and woodlands.  We have lots living in our woods.  We even sometimes see them on the patio in the summer - they like to steal the wild strawberries growing in our pots! 

On Thursday this week it is World Book Day.  There will be extra stories on our video resource centre this week.  We hope you enjoy watching them.  There are lots of lovely book related activities on the World Book Day website: World Book Day | World Book Day is a registered charity. Our mission is to give every child and young person a book of their own.

Do have a look.  In our optional extras section for this week you will find a reading star chart.  There are lots of ideas for reading in different ways and different places.  I wonder if any of you can do everything on the star chart?  We have also included a couple of activities from the World Book Day website to give you an idea of what else is on there.  Also, if you fancy dressing up as a favourite book character on Thursday we would love to see a picture. 

Have a great week! 

Week beginning 22nd February 2021

We hope you all had a good break over half term.  

We're back to learning about British woodland animals.  This week we are learning about badgers.  Some of you may never have seen a badger in real life as they are nocturnal and very shy.  What else can you find out about badgers this week?  

 

Optional extras

Half Term Week

We hope you have a restful half term with your children this coming week. We are very proud of how well they have risen to the challenges of home schooling and adapting to the key worker bubble. Due to the continued lockdown we know that many families will not be having the usual holiday. We hope you will be able to spend time out and about in the fresh air enjoying family walks, building Dens in the woods or playing with your children. As this Sunday is Valentines Day we have put up a special story for the children to watch on the video resource centre. We are also including an activity that your child may want to join in with. It is to join in with the  #ShowSomeLove campaign to thank the Key workers in our community by making and displaying a heart in your window. They can be creative and colourful to show some love this February. 

We want to wish you all an enjoyable week with your children. 

Stay safe 

From all the  Reception Team
