Phonics Lessons W/C Monday 6th July 

Hello everybody, 

Here are the phonics lessons for Monday 6th July, Tuesday 7th July, Wednesday 8th July, Thursday 9th July and Friday 10th July.  This week we are continuing through phase 4.  There are no new sounds in phase 4 - it deepens the skills of reading and writing with the sounds that they already know.  There are however new tricky words.  Your child will be developing their blending and segmenting skills in phase 4 and it can be a big leap for them.  As ever, little and often and is the best approach.  Their skills of hearing and blending more sounds in sounds will progress with regular practise, just like any other skill. 
Happy learning!

Topic - WC 13th July and 20th July  

Transition and Summer Holidays

This is the last full week of this academic year. Before we outline the home learning for this week, we would like to pass on our thanks to all parents and carers that have continued to provide Home Learning to our brilliant Reception pupils. Your support is very much appreciated by the whole Reception team. THANK YOU!

This week we are focusing on transition activities, and exploring what we might take on our holiday. The first part of the week will focus on transition into year 1. This may be a sensitive subject for some, which is to be fully expected, but hopefully these activities will help.

There are two stories (see PowerPoints) for you to read with your child; 'The Cautious Caterpiller' and 'Jake's First Day'. Both focus on changes and explore the feelings that come with change. There are also transition worksheets for your child to complete should they wish to; a butterfly and/or a superhero writing frame. 

The second part of the week and into the 2 days next week before we break up can be focused on holidays and what items we might pack in our suitcases. Will you pack the same things to go to a cold place as you would a hot place? It is very much getting your child to think about what they might take. They can even make their own Passport!

Once again, thank you for all your support. We massively appreciate it. 

Have a lovely, well deserved break. We are very proud of each and every one of this fabulous Reception 2020 cohort. 

Take care,

Mr O'Dwyer, Miss Miskowicz, Miss Taylor, Mrs Cleave and Mrs Clarke.

Topic - WC 6th July. Sun, Sea and Beach Safety  

For the next week we will be focusing on 'Sun, Sea and Beach Safety'. This topic will be for week commencing 6th July.

As always, below are a selection of different resources for you to use at your leisure. We have numbered each document to give you some guidance in the order you can use the resources over the next week - do as much or as little as is needed. 



Activity summary:

1. Sun, Sea and Beach Safety presentation - discuss this topic with your child and have a go at the quiz! 
2. The story of Sammy Seagull - a nice story teaching children the importance of being safe at the seaside.
3. Sun Safety - a presentation about the importance of sun safety, as well as a word search and a design task. 
4. Water Safety presentation - have a discussion with your child about water safety and the meaning of the different beach flags.
5. Sea Boats - This is a discussion to have with your child about the different types of boats and what they are used for. Encourage your child to find similarities and differences. This section also includes a 'Float or Sink' task and worksheet, and a design and build task for 'Padstow Bear' who is in need of a boat to help him sail the seas! Can you help? 
6. Pirate Ships! - we will end this short topic by exploring Pirate Ships! AAAARRRRR!!

We hope these resources help. As mentioned previously, as previously mentioned, where you can please continue to (safely) go and explore different beaches, maybe a harbour and explore boats. Please look for similarities and differences. The activities below are for guidance only. Please do as many of as little as needed. If you are unable to print, please copy onto paper where possible, or try a different resource. We have tried to make activities as user friendly as possible.

Thank you, The Reception Team

Topic - WC 22nd June & 29th June. The Seaside 

The Seaside

For the next couple of weeks we will be focusing our topic on 'The Seaside'. This topic will be for week commencing the 22nd and 29th June.

Below are a selection of different resources for you to use at your leisure. The first document titled 'The Seaside Lesson Plans and Ideas' is a useful document to read though and get ideas for the couple of weeks.

We hope these resources help. As mentioned previously, we are in a fortunate position of living close to the seaside, so, if possible, please continue to (safely) go and explore different beaches and look for similarities and differences.

The activities below are for guidance only. Please do as many of as little as needed. If you are unable to print, please copy onto paper where possible, or try a different resource. We have tried to make activities as user friendly as possible. There are PowerPoints that explore different beaches in the UK, what a seaside holiday was like in Victorian times, and what beaches are like across the world (there may be a couple of pictures of a certain Mr O'Dwyer on some international pictures, can you spot him?!). The next couple of weeks is very much about your child understanding the world directly around them, exploring similarities and differences, and researching seasides in the wider world. Please browse over the list of beach activities (titled 'Beach activity list') to give you lots of ideas of things to do at the beach - fingers crossed for good weather!

Any problems or questions, please do get in touch.

Thank you, The Reception Team

Topic - WC 1st June, 8th June & 15th June. The Rainbow Fish 

The Rainbow Fish

This half term, we will be exploring things to do with 'The Seaside'. Over the next 8 weeks (yep, this is a long half term!) we will be looking at sea animals, holidays, boats, different sea sides from around our country and the world, and what our sea side used to look like long ago.

To introduce this topic,  for the next 3 weeks (Week commencing 1st June, 8th June and 15th June) we will be focusing on The Rainbow Fish, by Marcus Pfister, and exploring the different types of sea creatures and animals that are in our Oceans. 

Below are a selection of different resources for you to use at your leisure.  The first document titled 'The Rainbow Fish Lesson Plans and Ideas' is a useful document to read though and get ideas for the next few weeks. The first selection of resources are related to Rainbow Fish, which we will focus on first. When ready, move on to learning about sea creatures and animals - there is another Word document titled 'Under the Sea Lesson Plans and Ideas' for you to look at, plus other Under the Sea resources for you to use. We hope these resources help.

We are in a fortunate position of living close to the seaside, so, if possible, you can (safely) go and explore things like rock pools and beaches to really bring the learning to life.

The activities below are for guidance only. Please do as many of as little as needed. If you are unable to print, please copy onto paper where possible, or try a different resource. We have tried to make activities as user friendly as possible. The first PowerPoint titled 'The Rainbow Fish - Introduction' has a link to an online story teller who reads the story, and also a list of practical activities for the coming weeks. 

Any problems or questions, please do get in touch. 

Thank you,

The Reception Team

Maths - WC 1st June 



Teen Numbers Week! (4 sessions only due to a school INSET day)

We hope you had a good and restful half term. This week we are focusing on the 'tricky teens'. Hopefully by focusing on the teen numbers this week, this will set us up nicely for the next few weeks where we will explore counting in 2's, 5's and 10's.

There will be certain teen numbers that your child may find more difficult than others. That said, below are 4 lessons (there is a school INSET day this week) plus extra resources for specific numbers that you might identify your child struggling with. These are the 'All about the number...' documents - You will need some of these for Session 3. If you cannot print these documents there are 'All about the number...' PowerPoints available from www.twinkl.co.uk.

Any problems, please let Mr O'Dwyer know - lodwyer@wadebridgeprimary.co.uk
